See The Timing Of The Rapture Of The Church- Whether It Is Imminent Or Not

When the scriptures are kept in context, a person will see whether The Rapture of the Church can happen at any time (being Imminent), or whether there are certain major events that need to precede The Rapture. The confusion is not because the Word of God is not clear, but
because many people and teachers interpret the scriptures out of context. God knows exactly how to say things clearly. God's Word does
not need our interpretation.

The problem is that many authors explain certain key verses out of context, and have tried to get certain verses to fit their view, or a view
they have been taught. This has led to confusion about The Rapture. God has not left out key information so that we would be confused. 

The Bible cautions us about being deceived regarding The Rapture, and The End Times. Matt 24:3-4, ". . . Tell us, when shall these things be?
and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you."

Jesus then lists many different events that would precede His Coming to rapture His followers. Deceived is a very strong admonition. The
Word also states about us being deceived in 2 Thes. 2: 1-3, "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day
of Christ is at hand. 3 "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day
(The Rapture) shall not come, except . . ." Paul then lists 2 main events
that precede the Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Deception causes error in our Christian walk, and it allow the enemy to come into our life.
It often opens up other areas for being deceived.

It is imperative that we study the related scriptures in context and not allow pre-conceived biases to interfere with what the Bible states.
2 Tim. 2:15, "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." Don't try to
come-up with another theory; allow the Bible to interpret what it says. When the verses are read in context, all other related verses make
more sense, and then a person will be able to see clearly the whole picture regarding the timing of The Rapture- whether Pre Trib., Mid Trib., Post Trib. Post Trib/Pre Wrath, etc.

To see the complete picture of the End Times and the timing of The Rapture, all the pieces need to be arranged in their proper context.
The particular verses of scripture cannot fit in a forced manner, with certain verses either being omitted, or explained in a manner which is
out of context. All the verses, when properly arranged will naturally fit in context. It will actually show a unified and clear picture regarding
the End Times or Latter Days, and the timing of The Rapture. When this is done, clarity will result, instead of confusion.

When we can see how these scriptures fit together, (as pieces of a puzzle) we will also not be deceived regarding the events of the End
Times, and the timing of The Rapture. Jesus cautioned His disciples about being deceived, and this caution also applies to all Christians.
Matt. 4:4, “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.” He then immediately states an entire discourse about
the End Times- in Matt. 24. So that we also are not deceived, about the End Times and The Rapture, we need to take heed, to what the Bible
says. Therefore, we should study what the scripture say about the Signs of the End Times. Then, when certain End Time Events begin to
appear, we won’t be caught off guard, but will recognize them, and know whether the “Sign of Jesus’ Coming” is truly Imminent.
