WHEN IS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST RETURNING?
THE ANSWER IS IN GOD'S WORD, THE BIBLE. NOT IN MAN'S PREDICTIONS OR PERSONAL INTERPRETATIONS!
For approximately 2,000 years, man has placed a date on the Lords Return. 100% of the time their predictions failed and their predictions WILL continue to fail! I don't understand why man continues with these "date setting" predictions. They will always fail and fail miserably! I believe that we need to simply take God's Word at face value. So many "bible scholars" "claim" to have the correct interpretation when, in fact, all they have is their own personal opinion, in regards to the rapure of the church!
I know some people claim that the word "rapture" is not in the Bible. Truth is that it is not in the English translated Bible. However, the word "Rapturo", which is "rapture" in english, is, in fact, in the Latin Bible. It is translated from the word Harpazo found in the Greek translation of the Bible. In English it is simply translated as "caught up". Nevertheless, the concept of a Rapture is in our Bible!
Getting back to the timing of the Rapture. Many say that it will happen before the tribulation, (pre-tribulation). Others claim the pre-tribulationists are wrong by stating that it will happen during the middle of the tribulation (mid-tribulation). Then, you have another group who swear on heaven that the rapture is at the end of the tribulation, (post-tribulation). Finally, you have those who simply believe that the rapture is a false doctrine and that a "snatching away" or being "caught up" will never happen! All these beliefs simply serve the purpose of causing great division within the Body of Christ. Since everyone in these groups claim that their interpretation is scriptural and that it is the correct interpretation, going as far as claiming that if you disagree with their interpretation you are not a TRUE Christian and that you are a deceiver, this causes me to ask myself, Is the Holy Spirit confused? Is the Holy Spirit giving one group of believers one time frame while giving another group a different time frame? Is the Holy Spirit divided with Himself? This is nonsense!
God did not give us a specific date for His return for a reason. I believe our Lord desires that we remain ready and vigilant at ALL TIMES! We are to expect Him at ANY MOMENT!
So, when is the Lord returning? I will remove and filter EVERY interpretation by man and stick solely and exclusively with the Word of God for it is Faithful and True! Our Lord calls on us to remain watchful and vigilante because His return will come as he describes in the following verse below!!! Let God be true and every man a liar! God bless------Ozzie Roldan..
THE LORDS RETURN?:......"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man. Then two men will be in the field; one is taken and one is left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one is taken and one is left. Watch therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the householder had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have watched and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect." (Matthew 24:36-44)
