For every Christian, the goal is to experience the rapture – the moment when, according to scripture, Jesus will take those who “belong to him” up to heaven to be “with him eternally”. This is part of the series of events described in the book of Revelation that will occur during the end times. In John 14: 3-4, Jesus addresses his disciples, saying: “I will come again and receive you to myself, that where I am, there you may be also.
“Where I go you know, and the way you know.”
Christians believe this means there is a way to go – a way that leads those who walk on it to be received to Jesus and be together with him eternally.
They add that God has not given the world indicators, or any signs to tell us the end is near.
The Bible is unclear about when the rapture will happen and even Jesus is uncertain.
In Mark 13:32, he says: “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
In Amazon Prime’s “The Kingdom and End Times”, the documentary suggests God is very clear about Matthew 24:36.
The 2016 documentary reveals, the Bible says that “the angels do not even know when the Day of Judgement will be”.
Mark 13:32 mentions the fact that Christ himself did not know when the end will be.
In the show, Don Blackwell questions why the Lord says that the angels do not know, as Christ himself did not know the day of his return.
Peter 3:10 adds that tell us that the day of the Lord will “come like a thief in the night”.
Mr Blackwell explains that: “A thief doesn’t give you a clue, or when he’s coming.
“He doesn’t say that its going to be at nighttime, or if it’s going to be in the month of October.”
It is then revealed that the rapture will be an absolute surprise and you will not be expecting it.
