Are you Rapture Ready? - Part 2
There is no doubting that the Rapture will be a glorious, indescribably experience – when finally, we meet our Maker and are caught up with Him.
I believe that no matter how spectacular we’ve dreamt this catching up to be – it will far exceed that.
But what is in store for us, as Christians, the day after the Rapture?
Well, we can certainly agree that worship around the throne of God will be the chief activity – we will be in heaven, the most perfect place, where we will experience the most indescribable degree of joy and satisfaction.
But what about those who are left behind? What about those who weren’t ready for the rapture, and missed it?
What will they experience, the day after the Rapture?
Fortunately, the Bible doesn’t leave us in the dark on this subject. In fact, the scriptures are very clear to let us know for certain what will happen.
That’s why, in this article, I’m going to let the Bible talk. We’ll go through about 7 years’ worth of tribulation, in approximately 15 minutes of reading.
Note: If you are one of our readers who are lost, or uncertain about whether you’ll make the rapture or not – perhaps someone who loves you very much sent you this article out of concern, or perhaps you’re reading it because you want to see what this ‘left behind stuff’ is all about – well, regardless of the reason, you should keep reading.
These verses may make you feel rather uncomfortable, but, it’s important that you know what lies ahead. Actually, your life depends on it.
As you read this article, may you become prepared for the Lord’s return. To be honest, this article is not only to show you what’s to come, but it can “comfort the afflicted” and at the same time, “afflict the comfortable”.
Now let’s dive right into the meat of this…
Revelation 4-5 tells us what will happen after the rapture for those who are saved.
But Revelation 6 onwards tells us what will happen to the lost, and those who are left behind. This is known as the “Tribulation Period” which will last for 7 years.
In chapter 6, the scene now shifts from the saved in heaven to those left behind, here on the earth.
Today I’m going try and summarise this to the best of my ability – again, these are things which will take place over a period of 7 years – but we will be covering 3 topics, which are:
- the 7 seals
- the 7 trumpets
- the 7 bowls
- The Seven Seals
- 1st Seal: The Conqueror
The White Horse
When the first seal is opened, we see the beginning of what will happen during the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation Period under the coming world ruler.
Someone will come on the scene as the “saviour of the world” riding a white horse. He’s going to promise to solve all of the world’s problems, bring peace, prosperity and unity to all of mankind.
I’m sure the world will be in chaos for a while, because of the rapture. When people are suddenly caught up, there will be crashing cars, planes falling from the sky, and people will completely disappear without a trace. This may be blamed on a terrorist attack, or weapons of mass destruction.
Someone will come and offer peace, but we have to notice that scripture says he has a “bow” but no arrows. This is because it’s a false peace. He’s a master politician – the Anti-Christ. No one will realise his true identity until he reveals himself 3 ½ years later.
In Daniel 8 & 11, we are told that he will make a treaty with Israel, giving them permission and provision to build their Temple. He will assure peace for Israel, and will rise to power with the help of the religious apostate church that is left behind.
- 2nd Seal: Conflict on Earth
The Red Horse
There will be fluctuating war and peace for 3 ½ years, and then, in the middle of the Tribulation Period, the peace will suddenly be over. The red horse in this verse resembles war, bloodshed and persecution. The Anti-Christ will be revealed for who he really is, and then there will be Great Tribulation, like the world has never seen before. It will make World War 1 and 2, Vietnam & Iraq seem like Disney World.
- 3rd Seal: Scarcity on Earth
The Black Horse
This third seal will bring inflation and famine. The “black horse” depicts mourning and starvation, and the balance speaks of the scarcity of food. Food will have to be rationed, but you must have the right number – Revelation 13:16-18.
You won’t be able to support your family on your wages. Even if you could buy food, the False Prophet is the one who distributes it, and you must have the “mark of the beast”. If you take his mark, you are guaranteed to end up in hell. But, without the mark, you will starve to death.
- 4th Seal: Widespread Death on Earth
The Pale Horse
In the Greek, it’s a ‘pale greenish-yellow’. This represents death, epidemics, famine, pestilence. Those left behind will see wild beasts being released on the earth, and ¼ of the population on the earth will die – and even the rich won’t be spared. There will be weapons of mass destruction, a nuclear fallout, poisoned water and more…
- 5th Seal: The Cry of the Martyrs
- 6th Seal: Cosmic Disturbances
Until now, everyone could explain the diseases, famines and inflation, but only God can control the forces of nature, yet there will be meteorites, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods, and utter darkness. Verse 14 even seems to describe an atomic blast.
- 7th Seal: Prelude to the Seven Trumpets
This “silence” is like that which you experience in a courtroom when a judge enters to sentence the condemned criminal. The 7 trumpet judgments are about to be given, by the 7 angels. Here, time is given for those on earth to think about God’s judgment. Heaven stands speechless & spellbound for ½ hour. Something terrible is about to happen on earth. Revelation 8:2,6
In part 3, we will be publishing the balance of this series as we delve into the 7 trumpets by the 7 angels, as well as the 7 bowls which are poured out.
This depicts in great detail what will take place after the rapture, and what will be endured by those who are left behind.
We have had thousands of people who follow our ministry from around the World tune in for this series, and many have been completely bewildered by the truth which has been uncovered, and how their eyes have gone open.
