This is part one of a three part follow-up series to interpretive articles, "Interpreting the Rules of Revelation" and The Rapture". We recommend that you select and read them both if you haven't already. Then read "Hunting for Key Words the Inductive Way," before continuing with this rapture critique. The hermeneutic principles contained in all three articles will equip you to better understand this and every other study article posted for your interpretive critique.
Before Jesus Christ's return to the earth, the Bible predicts a resurrection and a rapture. Why? And what are they? This is a perplexing question the Bible answers fully.
Bible prophecy. Can the ordinary every day pew warming Christian understand these passages of Scripture that make up one third of the Bible's text? The many complex commentaries that have flooded Christian airwaves and bookstores over the years have generally said, NO.

Comparing the Revelation and Exodus Plages with Literal Intent
Summary of Outline
Context is the foundation on which the house of biblical hermeneutics rests. (See "Interpreting the Rules of Revelation" and "Hunting for Key Words the Inductive Way" in our article selections.) Who was being spoken to, what was being said, when and where it was said, and why it was said are the "rightly dividing" measure rods (2 Tim. 2:15) for serious Bible students. Key words, key events, general and local truth, and the anointing of God's Spirit are all key ingredients in the interpretive process.
