Signposts are everywhere in the stage setting of the coming Tribulation but we cannot be sure that the Rapture will happen this year. Scripture tells us that it will happen at a time when: “the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of ” (Matthew 24:50).
Since all born-again Christians of the Church Age are not appointed to wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:9-11) and the seven-year Tribulation is the period of the God’s wrath (Revelation 6:17), the time of Rapture must be near.
We are told to be ready (Matthew 24:44). When we see all the things prophesied for the Tribulation BEGIN to come to pass, we are instructed to be aware, to anticipate His return for our redemption is drawing near (Luke. 21:28).
