Q. I thought that maybe the rapture would take place on May 14th, the anniversary of Israel’s birth, but it didn’t. What should I expect now?
A. You should expect the rapture to happen any time now, but on a day no one could have known in advance, just like the Bible says. The rapture will occur when the Church has reached its full number (Romans 11:25), and since neither its current number nor its full number are known, no one on Earth can predict the day it will happen. But the Bible also says we should know the general time, and should not be surprised when it does happen (1 Thes. 5:4). Many students of prophecy believe we’re in the general time now.
