The Rapture is the technical term for the Biblical explanation of the resurrection of both the living and the dead in Christ occurring at the end of the church age, (in a moment of time) that is those who have trusted in Jesus Christ by believing that he paid for their sins on the cross of Calvary.
See the explanation of the technical word rapture, in the Bible verses below-
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, (1 Corinthians 15:51)
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
(1 Corinthians 15:52)
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. (1 Corinthians 15:53)
As a footnote to this subject we would like to point out that if you googled the word rapture, you would get literally thousands of different people setting thousands of different dates for the rapture, even though the Bible says no one knows the day or the hour:
“But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” (Mark 13:32)
Bible believers that study the Bible the way the Bible says it should be studied usually quote the above Bible verse, see the article on : How to study the Bible.
