Asked in New Testament
Is Matthew 24.40 the rapture?
Yes, it is referring to the rapture. Another Answer: The term 'rapture' is not in the Scripture and is a tradition of men. The verse in Matthew is in reference to the 2nd Coming of Jesus to rule on Earth at the blast of the 7th Trumpet. It will be a loud and visible event where the firstfruits will rise from their graves or on the earth to meet their King in the sky. It will not be a secret or silent 'rapture' as some teach since the 19th century.

Asked in The End of the World (apocalypse)
How will and when will the world end?
Depending on when during the 7 year tribulation the rapture of the church happens of which no man knows the day or the hour, after the tribulation Jesus comes to earth and rules the world for a 1000 years. after the rapture it will be at LEAST 1000 years before the earth is consumed by fire. I guarantee the world will NOT end in 2012 the rapture can happen in 2012 in which the saints will be taken up to meet the Lord. The rapture is not the end of the world! The Mayans are off by at least a thousand years.
Asked in Catholicism
What is the Catholic's position on the Rapture?
Rapture in the Catholic Church refers to a form of ecstasy that is sudden and violent. Rapture cannot be resisted, it is a form of possession by the Lord in the last stages of Mystical Prayer. St. Teresa of Avila gives a description and directions about Rapture. . However, from the way you phrased the question, I am assuming you are asking about the protestant view of the "Rapture" in which people will be caught up into the air. Catholicism, first of all, does not use the word "Rapture" to refer to this, however, of the many different theories about the rapture, Catholics would fall into the Amillennialism view in that the "millennium" is the period of history in which we are living now. As St. Paul says, in this, the last age, that is the age between the first coming of Christ and His Last Coming at the end of the world - this is it, this is the age in which we live, there will be no other. At the end of the world, those still alive will be "caught up" and the dead will be raised, and then - the END, and the final judgment. . For a complete description of all of this and the Catholic views on the other "rapture" theories, please see the link below.
Asked in Antarctica, Predictions
What will antarctica be like in a few years time?
it will still be the way it is because God created the earth and nothing on earth will change until he comes back for the rapture. He is the one and only God.the god of neptune and all of these other greek "gods" are fake. So to answer your question. no one knows what will happen. the rapture may come in those few years and everything will change. If the rapture does not happen.........It will stay the same.
Asked in Decade - 1960s, The Bible, Statue of Liberty
When was the rapture?
It hasn't happened yet. When John Nelson Darby created the idea of the Rapture, in 1830, he was careful not to state when it would actually happen. Hal Lindsey, author of The Late Great Planet Earth and one of the principal modern proponents of the Rapture, decided that biblical prophecy required that it would occur within one generation, or forty years, of the founding of the state of Israel in 1948. Barbara R. Rossing (The Rapture Exposed) says that as 1988 approached, with no sign of the Rapture to come, Lindsey began to back off from that statement. Another proponent of the Rapture, Harold Campling, pinned down the actual date of the Rapture, in May 2011. When this month came and went, Campling changed his prophecy to October 2011. But still no Rapture. No, the Rapture hasn't happened yet. But hey, it was only an idea.
