The Rapture in the Old Testament

"For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock." 
 Psalm 27:5

There are several Old Testament verses that hint at a hiding of believers before a trying time of judgement on earth. These very verses seem to match the New Testament concept found in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. Here are two of those verses. Always notice the mention of the Day of the Lord or a time of trouble.

"Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain." Isaiah 26:20-21

"Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger." Zephaniah 2:3

This hiding must be close, but we are still called to occupy until He comes. We still need to intercede for our world, nation, state, family, and friends. Don't you want them to be hidden too?
Not only do we want them hidden, but we also want the tide of wickedness to turn away from America as well!

School Officials in Mass. Town Won't Let Students Recite Pledge of Allegiance

Massachusetts School Offers to Allow Pledge of Allegiance -- but Not in Class Massachusetts was the entry point for a fervent spirit of prayer and revival in America. Today, it seems to be one of the darkest points in the nation. Where did the early church have its greatest successes early on? In Asia Minor. This is the very region of Turkey and part of the 10/40 window that has less than 1% of a Christian population. Were the rapture to take place there, they would not even miss that number! WHEN YOU OPEN YOURSELF TO DARKNESS, GREAT DARKNESS ENSUES!
