Hey Beloved brothers and sisters! ! Are you waiting for the Rapture ? Do you believe to be caught up in the heavens ? Is the Rapture just a utopia or a reality? I know you guys got lots of things to say there upon....

Greetings Chrislink,

I am most definitely waiting and watching for the Lord's return to gather His church, as are many others here. Unfortunately, some are not, but instead expect to be on the earth and be exposed to the time of God's wrath via the seals, trumpets and bowl judgments. Have you been studying this event? By the way, it's most definitely a future reality.

No man knows the day, nor the hour, but our Lord will step out on that cloud one day and with a shout, and with the sound of a trumpet, we shall be called to meet Him in the air!

Absolutely I have studied this issue. I am sure that the Lord will return to gather his church. It is astonishing to hear that some expect to be on earth during the great tribulations which will strike the world. ..As matter of fact, the Church doesn't pass through the great tribulations and so there is no way for Her to be exposed to the time of God's wrath via the seals or trumpets.

Amen and dead people in Christ will raise again!

All of this happened in 70 AD. The Great Tribulation was the utter destruction which came upon Israel. Notice that it happened in Judea and was "a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation?" Christ returned and carried out His wrath against apostate Israel, just as He said He would. The dead saints have been resurrected and are in heaven, the place prepared for them. The righteous were "changed" in the twinkling of an eye, their souls given new "programming" not to go to Hades anymore but straight to heaven upon death. That was the rapture, or being caught up "in the air."
