Harpazo is the Greek word which is translated to Rapture, meaning “catching away”. When the world is faced with the unbelievable fact that the rapture has occurred and if you are one of many that are left behind because of your sin what will you do?
I hear so many people that complain about those who try to figure out the time of the Rapture. It doesn’t bother me so much. I find it interesting. Many predicted dates have come and gone. Even some as recent as this last week. I wonder how humiliated those feel who set dates and then the date passes with no Rapture? Ah well, who can blame anyone for being weary of the demonic hoard of sinful people threatening and persecuting the believers. We want to be welcomed by our beloved Savior Yeshua.
I was inspired to write this article to day because a happened upon a video giving the date of Pentecost 2022 as the date for the Rapture. You can view the video and give it some thought unless of course you are one of those who is angered by such and you always say, “No man knows the day or the hour”. I get so tired of hearing angry Christians reply that way when you contemplate a Rapture date. I don’t get angry. I see it as an opportunity to study Scripture.

As always, my advice to people is to be ready. In my own life I admit I have been stony ground, thorny ground, and I can only hope now I am fertile ground and will persevere till the end. What happens though to those who were not living right when the Rapture takes place? Will they have a second chance to get things right? I believe so.
If you missed the Rapture I believe those who are called the Tribulation Saints are “those who remain” who will be caught up with Yeshua at the Second Coming and they will join the previously Raptured along with the armies of heaven and head to the battle of Armageddon.
I know I have suffered enough already in my lifetime that I definitely do no want to be left behind and it is for that reason that I pray daily without ceasing and always ask the Father to search my heart for anything I’ve ever done that I can’t even remember and to please forgive me for it. I do my best to study His Law and to keep it as best as can be done without a Temple. So many Laws we cannot accomplish in complete fulfillment without the Temple so I ask that the Father look upon the blood of Yeshua that was shed for us and ask for mercy. I’ve been studying Scripture since I was a child and I must admit that I may never have a perfect understanding until I get to sit as the Master’s feet and be taught by Yeshua Himself one day in the Kingdom and in the World to Come.
One last thought on date setting. I know some people get frustrated and angry about such, but I say if it brings one soul to salvation because they are inspired to study the Scripture and come to repentance then who can be angry that another soul has entered the Kingdom? The Father, nor Yeshua never said it was a sin to obsess or try to figure out the date of the Rapture. Yeshua only said, no one knows but the Father, but He didn’t say we must not obsess about it. 🙂
