DWQA QuestionsCategory: DisinformationIs the born-again Christian story about the Rapture an accurate prediction about the future? What is its true origin and meaning?

We do not wish to see this attacked per se as it will draw fire unduly from the true believers. It is a mix of truth and falsehood as many such notions are. It is based on the view of those studying the Bible and interpreting it literally, at least their particular sense of meaning. So beginning with the Book of Revelation, the talk of Armageddon coupled with the intuitive awareness of spiritual leaders down through the ages of an end times being very much a potential, this created many projections of calamity calling for a return of a messiah and a need for a spiritual upliftment and rescue. It is simply a misinterpretation of the prophecy that some would leave, and others remain. It is a misinterpretation of the fact all must leave, or none will remain living. That is the choice before humanity—to heal the current situation and, in particular, the interlopers standing in your way to allow Ascension to proceed, or to remain complacent and allow the annihilation to happen in its stead. Then nothing approaching a rapture can happen once humans are all back in the light or in limbo.
