If this event occurs even just prior to the rapture and I now believe that it will, it would explain Matthew 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” when else would all born again Christians think that he’s not coming? Once the Holy Spirit departs we will feel an emptiness that we’ve never experienced before. That is also why we need the extra “Oil” which is the whole armor of God to withstand the horror of this. After that happens, I don’t know how long it will be before the rapture occurs. If the Holy Spirit departs in like manner as he came to the disciples as the comforter at Pentecost, it may be as long as 50 days. I hope not. It will be something like what Jesus felt on the cross as he cried, “Why hast thou forsaken me”. So it may only be hours. I have prayed about this and I asked God to give me wisdom. It is something that has been laid on my heart for some time as I had questions about Matthew 24:24. It has been said by many that the rapture is a “Signless event”. I used to believe this. If what I’ve said is true, it will be a definite sign and one that could not be missed. (By any of us) Also it would be a comfort if we were to expect it to happen. Knowing this would help to get us through would it not? I am eagerly waiting for replies. Thank you
