Interesting topic! Most people do not even understand the rapture of the church, let alone know that there other raptures as well!! SEVEN TOTAL...the number of completion! Three have already taken place. The next four are yet to come... Now, let's let the Word speak... Rapture 1: Enoch Read Genesis 5: 21-24 and Hebrews 11: 5-6 Enoch was "translated" and this word is metatithami and means "changing from one place to another; carry away; removed Rapture 2: Elijah Read 1 Kings 17-19 and 2 Kings 1,2. Rapture 3: Jesus Read Acts 1: 9-11 When He finished His earthly ministry, at the end of the forty days following His resurrection, He was take unto into heaven by a cloud of angels.

It is for the saints here on earth who: a. Fail to qualify for the rapture of the church b. Are on earth for the tribulation and c. Are executed for their faith because they refuse to take the mark of the beast Read Rev 6, 7 and 20 Rapture 6: 144,000 Jewish, male, virgin evangelists (12,000 each from each of the 12 tribes of Israel) They will be born again and protected from the beast by the Mark of God on their foreheads. The will be raised up to preach the gospel during the first 3.5 years of the tribulation. Immediately after the this rapture, God releases the angels to preach the gospel for the 2nd half of the tribulation. (Rev 14:6) Read Rev 7, 14 Rapture 7: The two end-time witnesses, Enoch and Elijah. They are raptured twice.
