'Understand Endtime Signs'
When we start to synchronise the various signs and prophecies, which compliment one another, we should be able to understand that event better. The most important event for Christians is the Blessed Hope or Rapture which, surprisingly is the easiest to synchronize.
What do we learn by synchronizing the signs of Rapture?
1. Great heavenly blackout herald in the Lord coming as stars falling from heaven with the powers of heaven shaken
Mat 24:29-30 "Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."
The great heavenly blackout will herald the coming of the Lord. As the stars start to fall from heaven, the power of heaven will be shaken. As the stars get bigger and bigger, all mankind will see our Lord Jesus and His angelic hosts coming in power and glory to gather His elect.
Mark 13:27 "And *then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds*, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven."
2. Trumpets herald His coming
1Thess 4.16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
At the sound of the last trumpet, the dead will rise first followed by those still alive to meet the Lord in the air in their newly transformed glorious bodies.
1Cor 15:51-53 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed -- in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be c hanged. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
3. Great Earthquake
Rev 6:12-14 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place."
There will be great earthquakes throughout the whole world and man will feel that the ground has given way. Even mountains and islands will move out of their places. Everyone will run to open ground where they will witness the great heavenly blackout and the coming of our Lord. The saints will be raptured and then possibly half if those left will be killed by these great earthquakes and huge tsunamis.
Events of Rapture
Immediately after the great earthquakes worldwide, all mankind will run to the open areas. They will see the great heavenly blackout. Without the sunlight, the moon will turn blood red and then to black. Trumpets will sound to herald our Lord Jesus and His angelic hosts coming down to earth as stars falling from heaven. As the stars draw nearer, all mankind will see our Lord Jesus. All the dead in Christ and the elect (still alive) will meet the Lord in the air in their new glorious bodies.
