you could drive yourself crazy thinking it's a certain date and then sit around all day listening for a trumpet or some other event that might set it off...shaking might be just a small quake,or a truck down the rd ,etc.that's no way to live.that's why Jesus said no man knows the day or hour and it will be like a theif in the night.i take it this is a QUIET event...no eq's...etc.no splitting the ground.just a rude awakening to missing ppl. (if you believe in the rapture).no car wrecks,nor plane crashes,nor anything else...Jesus wasn't destructor Jesus when He came the first time,why would He be one now?

Itís nothing less than that which a person or many believe as truth, either predicated on their own interpretation or that of others concerning the Rapture (the Trinity, the Anti-Christ or Satan, his devils and demons, Hell, and the fallen Angels). Manís doctrines and their impact on humanity have been enduring and pervasive, especially, when based on the traditions of men. Either, everyone will be born again in Spirit upon their death, or no one will be: "Youíre only passing through this physical life, but once."

Speaking the truth in love.

Nope, I'd say that about 90% are christians.

Here in the bible belt, local news has been all over this, and all the preachers, pastors, and normal people they have interview all scoff at the fear tactics of this fringe group.

I guess I'm blind then, I'm just not stupid

When is it exactly that Satan is to be let loose for his thousand year reign, then picked back up and thrown back into his bottomless pit? By these calculations he's been in power since 1011.

PS: Given to our growing confusion in the world today among our societies, there could be some merit to that.

Do you know how many books have been written in the past 2000 years regarding the rapture to come in their time and it did not?...Christ did not even know for He said it was in the Fathers keeping...are we greater than the father?...Live as you know you ought and let the rapture take care of itself....
