Will We Know What’s Happening?

Q. Thanks again for your website and all of your work, I have told many about it and they have thanked me for bringing their attention to it.

My questions is about the Rapture and how it will be viewed by believers who go and unbelievers who stay. In 1 Thessalonians 4:17 Paul states that at the moment of the Rapture there will be a loud shout, the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God and then the dead in Christ will rise followed by those believers who remain alive at the Rapture. In 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 it states that it will all be in the twinkling of an eye.

Will we who are taken in the Rapture have time during the shout, the voice and the trumpet to realize what is happening for a short time (seconds) then be taken in the twinkling of an eye or will it all happen so fast that it is just a twinkling of an eye and we will not realize it but be instantaneously with Christ in Heaven? At the Rapture will the unsaved hear the shout, the voice of the archangel and the trumpet or will they just notice that many of us are gone?

Q.There’s no way to know for sure, but I believe we’ll be here on Earth with no awareness that it’s about to happen in one instant and and in the next one we’ll be in the presence of the Lord. If unbelievers hear anything at all it won’t be sufficient for them to connect it to our disappearance.

Rev. 13:5-6 says, “The beast (anti-Christ) was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. He opened His mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven.”

We can understand that he will blaspheme God and even His dwelling place, but why would he bother blaspheming those who dwell in Heaven unless he was referring to the departed Church? People will be wondering what happened and he won’t be able to tell them the truth, so he will have to invent a story that makes us look like evil beings who were thwarting his plan for world peace and had to be sup
