1 Thessalonians 5:3 “When they say, ‘There is peace and security,’ then sudden destruction will come upon them, as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and there will be no escape!”
When will this be? Many prophecy teachers believe that the “sudden destruction” that will come upon them is the Rapture of the Church. If that is the case, when will they be saying there is peace and security (safety)? Evil is clearly waxing worse and worse, so I wonder what you think about this.
Are they saying there is peace and security at a different time? Is the sudden destruction something other than the rapture?
I can’t get the questions out of my head as far as when anyone in this crazy world might be saying there is peace and security, as the whole world is in an uproar these days…Might there be an interruption in all of the destructive activity? A reprieve where people will breathe a sigh of relief and then the rapture? I don’t really see that in the Bible anywhere, I’m just speculating. I can’t figure it out. Any insight would be appreciated.
