This interesting article is really intended for mature, biblical Christians as sort of an apologetics insert. It's just another layer of 'protection' to ward off demon inspired chatter from false prophets, etc. There are still many bullies out there who think that their 'BIG WORDS' can pry honest Christians away from the truths of the Bible, including the term Rapture.
We might say that I am an 'educated country plow boy' who loves God and the Bible, and the Holy Spirit enables all people [who accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior] to grasp the weightier things of God's Word if we put our nose to the grind stone. I certainly didn't learn everything in a day either. God hates the proud heart-- but the humble ones He raises up-- and SAVES.
ARE YOU READY FOR HE RAPTURE ??
I somehow feel right now like this is the 'calm before the storm' -- and Satan is just as busy as ever misleading and blowing smoke at the majority of mankind so they take no note of what is about to happen.... Even as we Christians pray every day-- NOW is the time to draw closer to the Lord than ever before, just as Jesus and his apostles were in that Garden that night before the crowd took him away to be 'judged' and crucified. Truly, I feel this same thing in my gut every single day! When will the heathens fire the first shot that launches the big battle of Israel?
I know full well that most un-believers see me as a silly, old, crippled soldier who needs more medication to make me docile, but I see THEM as the folks who made fun of Noah before the flood. Sharon and I are truly blessed, even in our humble hovel with pain and suffering from various sickness and injuries. Bless our spiritual, persecuted brothers and sisters in hostile lands who don't even have clean, cool, drinking water and a shack to hang their hat.

For example, I ran across an article entitled "Origin of the Secret Rapture Theory." The first sentence said, "It may surprise and even shock you that neither the word ‘rapture’ nor the teaching of a
