Only 144,000? Isn't that gross.
The topic of this thread is a pre-tribulation rapture
The trib started a few years ago, as the bible states no one knew not even the nost holy but as events unfold we slowly become aware -or wake up, know anyone obsessed by 'waking up' at the moment? OH EVERYONE! Yes, we're all starting to see whats going on, who doesn't know the end is coming? check the news, everyone knows on some level, only slowly are we starting to see what it means -as again, the bible says.

I am responding to the thread title: I Think the Rapture has happened .
When I read your title, the first thing that came to my mind was II Thessalonians 2:1 and the confusion created then in regard to the Day of the Lord and our Gathering to Him. The Thessalonian Christians were led to believe that the Lord's Gathering of His Church had taken place and all that remained for them was pending judgement.
Of course we know that none of this was true and Paul had to set the record straight, reminding them of previous statements made in regard to the Lord's Gathering of His Church.
When I came into the faith in 1979, the Rapture was one hot expectation among the church. As the years have gone by, I have noticed that the church talks less and less about the Rapture, or, if you will, the Lord's gathering together of His church. I expect it will reach a point when the whole idea of the Lord's return to gather His church will become a mute subject, just as you will find less and less faith standing upon the earth. After all, Jesus himself asked, in regard to His return, if He would find any faith on the earth? [Luke 18:8]
That is very thought provoking.
Ok, here's where it gets crazy - During this time everyone who has ever lived will live upon the earth, we now know the population of the earth is over six and a half billion people -this could in fact be ALL the people who ever lived currently living again.
