Rapture is a military term meaning “a quick take away". Hence, the Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 4:17. "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord".
The very next event on God's end time calendar is the rapture of the church. This refers to the catching up of all the believers in Christ for a glorious meeting with Christ in the air. And one notable thing about it is that it is imminent and could take place any moment.
