Q. I believe that the Rapture could happen at any time. I was told when I was about 17 that our SS group was the “generation that certainly will not pass until all these things have happened” in the Lord’s statement of Matt. 24:34. Other people use other ways to measure it but it seems like it all comes out about the same. I will be 80 this year and am looking forward to being Raptured.
A. By any man’s calculations there seems to be very little time left before God once again intervenes in the affairs of man. While various people have predicted war in the Middle East several times in past years, never has the situation seemed quite so perilous or the consensus quite so broad. One day soon Israel’s enemies will go too far, the Lord’s anger will be aroused, and those who are watching will know that man’s last days have truly arrived.
