Why Rapture Calculator?
Updated: Nov 21, 2022
The Rapture Creator website and app was created after watching several sermons by Jason Robinson (Not James Robinson. I apologize for getting the name wrong) and Steven Anderson along with a few other pastors over the years.
Having been 'raised' on the pre-tribulation position of Christ's second return, which made absolutely no sense, I found the post-tribulation position to fit closely with the accounts found in the bible... In particular the Book of Daniel, Matthew 24, Mark13 and Luke 21. The last 3 being collectively known as the Olivet Discourse.
The Bible says nobody knows when the Rapture will occur:
Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only....42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come... 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Mark 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
1 Thessalonians 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
However, Daniel did prophesy specific periods of time, in particular 1260 days, 75 days, 1335 days, 1290 days and a few others.
Many people have come up with their theories of how the days predicted by Daniel ultimately fit timeline of events at the 'end'.
I will try to simplify and share how I think those days fall into place.
The Calculator takes the starting date for these events to be the date that the Antichrist "makes a covenant with many"... a 7 year period of world 'peace'. Once that event takes place the time line is set and locked into place.
Since this event has not taken place yet, the calculator can only be used to give people an idea of how far away the Rapture really is right now.
At this point in time the app is just for 'fun'. But, when that even takes place I figure people will want to know.
UPDATE: I changed the Calculator so you can enter the date you think the Rapture will take place. Then look at the dates for the events that will take place BEFORE the Rapture and then see if they fit the timeline.
