I heard on a Catholic radio station a man talk about the Catholic understanding of the Rapture and the Last Days compared to a wrong view of the Rapture that some people have believed. This is a deep topic. If you could help me to understand this a little bit more, and/or lead me to a place where I can get more in depth on the Orthodox understanding of this topic, that would be great.
What is Your Grace’s opinion concerning the two articles “Rapture of the Church" and "The Rapture of the Saints" posted on the Internet?
Why are there so many theories about the rapture? When do you think the rapture is going to happen—before or after the tribulation? Do you believe Islam is the
mentioned in the Scripture? Turkey is about to revive their last caliphate (the Mahdi). Is he the anti-christ? Muslims believe according to their Quran that the Mahdi and Isa are coming back at the end days. Are these the two false prophets spoken of in the Book of Revelation? In Ezekiel 28, God tells him to take a message to the king of Tyre. Is the king of Tyre the anti-christ? Does Ezekiel prophesy about the end of times?
Will you please explain the "Rapture?" Many believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will come, and then seven years of tribulation will occur. During these seven years, all the people on earth will get another chance to redeem themselves if they have "the Lord Jesus Christ in their heart." Is this what we also believe?
