Resurrection – Part 4. Within the Pre-Millenial view, there are three “rapture” timing theories. This consists of a pre-trib, mid-trib, and post-tribulation rapture. The most popular position for the placement of the rapture is the Pre-Tribulation view, however, this view has the least scriptural support. The Pre-Tribulation believers are looking for the eminent return of Christ. The Mid -Tribulation view raptures the believers 3.5 years into the tribulation (half way through he seven year tribulation). This would coincide with the abomination of desolation which reveals the Antichrist at the end of the false peace and prosperity. The Post-Tribulation view is the least popular but has the most scriptural support. This view identifies the rapture to coincide with the last trump identified in 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 (KJV) “Behold, I shew 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 trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” The only last trump in scripture occurs from the seven trumps identified in Revelation 8:6 (KJV) ”And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.” The last trump of this series occurs in Revelation 11:15-16 (KJV) “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,” This is at the end of the tribulation. The lesson on 02-09-2003 teaches on the three views for the rapture timing.
