Q. I read an article recently where the author says that the rapture will take around 10 days, the dead rising first then us. He was using Rev. 2:10 to back this up. He also says that we should have a 10 day supply of food and water saved because of riots that will happen during this 10 day event, I just don’t see all that from this verse. Do you think he is right about all this?
A. From history we know the ten days of Rev. 2:10 refers to the reigns of 10 Roman Caesars, covering a period of 250 years at the beginning of the Church Age, during much of which believers suffered intense persecution.
In 1 Cor. 15:51-52 Paul said at the rapture the dead will be raised and the living will be changed from mortal to immortal and it will all happen in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye.
This author has apparently taken one verse out of context and built a whole rapture scenario that conflicts with the clear Biblical account.
