Caught up

Matthew 24:36, 29, 30

(NIV)
24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not
the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall
the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the
heavens shall be shaken:*

*13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof
shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his
going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

*34:4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the
heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their
host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine,
and as a falling fig from the fig tree.

24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in
heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and
they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of
heaven with power and great glory.


(NIV)
Mt. 24:36 “No-one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels
in heaven, nor the Son, [Some manuscripts: do not have nor
the Son.] but only the Father.

Mt. 24:29 “Immediately after the distress of those days “`the sun will be
darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will
fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’
*[Isaiah 13:10; 34:4]

*Is. 13:10 The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show
their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will
not give its light.

*Is. 34:4 All the stars of the heavens will be dissolved and the sky
rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall like withered
leaves from the vine, like shrivelled figs from the fig-tree.


Mt. 24:30 “At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the
sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see
the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power
and great glory.



After the Tribulation 7 year "week" of Daniel's prophecy , not at the start of the 7 years 4x's times when

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

(KJV)
4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren,
concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even
as others which have no hope.

4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even
so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that
we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord
shall not prevent them which are asleep.

4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with
a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump
of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught
up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the
air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.


(NIV)
1Th. 4:13 Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those
who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no
hope.

1Th. 4:14 We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe
that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in
him.

1Th. 4:15 According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who
are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will
certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.

1Th. 4:16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a
loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the
trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

1Th. 4:17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up
together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And so we will be with the Lord for ever.

1Th. 4:18 Therefore encourage each other with these words.


Latin " deinde nos qui vivimus qui relinqui mur simul rapie mur cumillis in avera et sie semper cum Domino erimus "
" Shall be caught up " is " Rapiemur " Root for the Latin word " rapiemur " is " rapio " which means
" to seize ", snatch, tearaway; to hurry along a person or thing " "raptus" now the root Greek word for " shall be caught up " is
" harpazo " Strong's Concordance # 726 means " to seize, catch up, carry off by force, snatch out or away " which is the same as
" rapiemur " which is probably why Jerome translated that way it really doesn't matter if a person doesn't like the word " rapture"
it's the same meaning Latin or Greek " to seize, catch up, carry off by force, snatch out or away "

Verse 15 Paul got this from the Lord " for this we say unto you "
Verse 13 " I would not have you to be Ignorant " educating us to TRUTH

Just a bunch of scriptures, care to elaborate? What does caught up mean.

Also, for those that say no man will predict the end, that's not what it says, it says no man will know when the end will occur. This does not exclude the possibility of the end being predicted. It could mean that it can be predicted but will not be known for sure, and when the date is publicized it may not be taken seriously because of false predictions from earlier in time. Noone can be certain but speculation isn't out of the question.

some squirrels running around and an osprey flew

down real quick and snatched one up.

No attribution, no ex tags and again not one single word of your thought on the subject matter.

VERY poor posting indeed.

He did offer the meaning of caught up, as well as some opinion. It is just interspersed among a wall of scripture, which makes for a very hard read.

Summary: Caught up is the same thing as rapture, to be taken forcefully according to the root latin.

OP: try blocking the quotes in ex-text tags, or highlighting your latin description and the part about the wolf etc in red or yellow font to make it easier on everyones eyes.

Not in any way suggesting or implying censorship, ........have you ever considered, that sermons are better recieved in churches, where people actively and by choice come to listen to them.

Have you ever considred, that a sermon is a one-way communication, somewhat outside the expected dialogue-form people come to public forums for.

Have you ever considered, that the chances of converting anyone this way is very small.

Have you ever considered, that your efforts may have the opposite effect of what you possibly hope for.

Rapture may be a subject of some common interest; why don't you present it from a common communication-platform?
