Jim and Lori Bakker along with Michael Snyder connect the prophetic dots concerning the Rapture and the end of days.
Thank Him, not you. Thank Him for all that He has done. For the land, for the house, for everything. -Pastor Jim
Ok, but now this whole chapter, chapter 15 of 1 Corinthians is about the resurrection. It is about the rapture. Because, the resurrection and the rapture are same thing. -Michael Snyder
I Thessalonians 4:14-17 MEV For if we believe that Jesus died and arose again, so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will not precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall be forever with the Lord.
I Corinthians 15:51-52 MEV Listen, I tell 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 trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
I Corinthians 15:21-23 MEV For since death came by man, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the first fruits; afterward, those who are Christ’s at His coming.
Matthew 24:3 MEV As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?”
Matthew 24:27-31 MEV For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, ‘the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.’ “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
Matthew 24:37-41 MEV As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.Two will be in the field; one will be taken, and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and the other left.
II Thessalonians 2:1-5 MEV Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and concerning our gathering together unto Him, we ask you not to let your mind be quickly shaken or be troubled, neither in spirit nor by word, nor by letter coming as though from us, as if the day of Christ is already here. Do not let anyone deceive you in any way. For that Day will not come unless a falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or is worshipped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself as God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you, I told you these things?
II Thessalonians 2:7-8 MEV For the mystery of lawlessness is already working. Only He who is now restraining him will do so until He is taken out of the way. Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth, and destroy with the brightness of His presence,
II Timothy 2:3 KJV Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

I Peter 4:17 KJV For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
Matthew 24:15-21 MEV “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. Let him who is in the field not return to take his clothes. Woe to those who are with child and to those who nurse in those days! Pray that your escape will not be in the winter or on the Sabbath.For then will be great tribulation, such as has not happened since the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be.
Revelation 12:13-17 MEV When the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. The woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is to be nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. Then the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman. The earth opened its mouth and swallowed the flood which the dragon spewed out of his mouth. Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and he went to wage war with the remnant of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Matthew 24:22 MEV “Unless those days were shortened, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.
Joel 2:1-12 MEV Blow the ram’s horn in Zion, sound the alarm on My holy mountain! All the inhabitants of the earth will tremble, because the day of the Lord has come, because it is near— a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness. Like blackness spreading over the mountain, a great and mighty army comes, such as was never before, and will never be again, even through the years of all generations. Before them fire devours, and behind them a flame blazes; the land is like the garden of Eden before them, but behind them a desolate wasteland, and nothing escapes them. They have the appearance of horses, and like cavalry they run. As with the sound of chariots, they leap on the mountaintops, as with the sound of a flame of fire consuming stubble, as a mighty army arrayed for war. Before them, peoples are tormented; every face turns pale. Like mighty men they run, like men of war they scale a wall; each marches on his way, they do not swerve from their paths. They do not jostle one another; each marches in his track. Through the weapons they plunge; they do not break rank. They rush on the city, they run on the wall; they climb up into the houses, they enter through the windows like thieves. Before them the earth quakes, the heavens shake; the sun and moon darken, and the stars withdraw their radiance. The Lord has sounded His voice before His army, for His camp is exceedingly great; mighty is the one who accomplishes His word. For great is the day of the Lord, and very awe-inspiring. Who can endure it? Yet even now, declares the Lord, return to Me with all your heart, and with fasting and with weeping and with mourning.
Joel 2:14-15 MEV Who knows? He might turn aside and relent, and He might leave behind a blessing— a grain offering and a food offering for the Lord your God. Blow the ram’s horn in Zion, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly.
Revelation 19:14 MEV The armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
