In light of where things seem to look like now, do you still feel like the rapture will happen this year or shortly after?
Matthew 24:36 says: “But that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” No one should make a prediction as to the exact time of the Lord’s coming. Many Bible scholars, Dr. Van Impe included, point to verse 33 of the same chapter, which states that, “When ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” These verses in Matthew 24 refer to the Revelation of Christ 7 years after the Rapture of the Church. Since we see the signs fulfilled which precede His return at the Revelation, we know the Rapture must be imminent. However, no man can know the exact day or hour though we certainly know the time is near. Jesus could return today! Every sign that points to the Lord’s return has been fulfilled.
