When it came time to pick a research subject, one celestial event that came to mind that I have definitely heard of, but was not very educated on, was the rapture. I decided to devote my time to gain a better understanding of this widely talked about event. To the many people that may have not been raised in conjunction with the Christian faith, such as myself, would probably question what the rapture is. To be very honest, I had never heard of the rapture until…

    • 6 Pages

    The timing of the rapture in relation to the tribulation is one of the most controversial issues in the church today. The three primary views are pre-tribulational (the rapture occurs before the tribulation), mid-tribulational (the rapture occurs at or near the mid-point of the tribulation), and post-tribulational (the rapture occurs at the end of the tribulation). A fourth view, commonly known as pre-wrath, is a slight modification of the mid-tribulational position. In eschatology, it is…

    Maugham does not build up to the climax of her affair because he wants to show Kitty as the fallen woman, from the start. However, he changes the narrative to become more traditional and chronological later on, and the effect this achieves is that we see the gradual changes in kitty’s character. Within ‘Rapture’, the poems are written in the first person. This allows for a deeper sense of intimacy to be created. The significant difference between ‘The Painted Veil’ and ‘Rapture’ is that…

You will always be with me now, father, your memories, your drives.” I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes as I watched Eleanor, my daughter, hovering over my dying body. Her voice was soft, having listened to what I had been teaching her and taking that information with her. She had grown. I had grown. The city of Rapture lay far below us now, destroyed by its own ideology and corruption. But in it, there was hope. Hope that…

There is some disagreement over whether or not these saints include believers in Christ that enter into the tribulation period or whether these saints are “new” believers in Christ that come to faith during the tribulation.
