Q. At what time in bible prophecy does the rapture take place? Is it when the peace treaty with the anti-Christ is signed, the battle of Ezekiel 38-39 or when?
Also does Israel need to be living in an assumed state of peace like I Thessalonians ch 5:3 states?
A. I place the rapture either just before or perhaps during the Battle of Ezekiel 38-39. This is because God uses the battle to re-awaken Israel to His presence in their nation’s life, beginning Daniel’s 70th week. That means the Church has to disappear.
Yes, Israel does need to be living in a time of carelessly assumed peace both before the Battle of Ezekiel and afterward at the beginning of the 70th week.
