Bible Answer

How close are we to the Rapture?

Is the Rapture soon?

According to the Bible, the return of Christ for the Church is always an imminent possibility:

James 5:7  Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains.
James 5:8 You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near.
James 5:9 Do not complain, brethren, against one another, so that you yourselves may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing right at the door.
Phil. 4:4  Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
Phil. 4:5 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.
1Pet. 4:7 The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer.
1Pet. 4:8 Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.
Matt. 24:40 “Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left.
Matt. 24:41 “Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.
Matt. 24:42  “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.

So the Lord’s return is an ever-present possibility, and the exact timing of His return is entirely unknowable. Therefore, each day is just as likely as the next to be the day of His coming for the Church, so the only answer we can offer you is the one the Bible offers: be ready for the Lord’s return at all times, because it could happen at any time.
