A mystery is a truth that had not been previously revealed by God. It is not something that God intended to withhold as a secret; rather, in due course of time, God revealed something previously unknown (e.g. the Rapture).

MC Prophetic Timing Millennium

From Midnight Call magazine


By understanding the continuity between the Old and New Testaments of Scripture, the meaning of an Old Testament passage should be interpreted in its context.

Prophetic doctrines should be systematized from the priority of the Old Testament.

The "Rapture Passages" have a distinct reference to the Church.

MC Pretribulationism

From Midnight Call magazine


Pretribulationism is the belief that the rapture of the church occurs before the start of the seven-year tribulation.

The issue of the timing of the rapture in relation to the tribulation is a premillennial concern.

MC Rapture John 14

From Midnight Call magazine


Resurrection is a fundamental doctrine of Scripture.

Understand the timing of the resurrection of life in relation to the return of Christ, as it relates to His church.


"Do not let your heart be troubled;

believe in God, believe also in Me.

In My Father’s house are many dwelling places;

if it were not so, I would have told you;

for I go to prepare a place for you.

If I go and prepare a place for you,

I will come again and receive you to Myself,

that where I am, there you may be also."

- John 14:1-3

MC Rapture Phil 3

From Midnight Call magazine


In this earthly life, the believer's body is humbled by death, disease, persecution, and sin. The body is earthly, perishable, weak, natural, and mortal (1 Cor 15: 35-58).

Believers "groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of the body" (Rom 8:23).


"For our citizenship is in heaven,

from which also we eagerly wait

for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;

21 who will transform the body of our humble state

into conformity with the body of His glory,

by the exertion of the power that He has

even to subject all things to Himself."

- Philippians 3: 20-21

MC Rapture 1Cor15

From Midnight Call magazine


The mystery regarding the resurrection is that some believers will not die.

All saints will overcome death either through translation or resurrection at the coming of Christ.


"Behold, I tell you a mystery;

we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed,

52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,

at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound,

and the dead will be raised imperishable,

and we will be changed."

- 1 Corinthians 15: 51-52

MC Rapture Titus 2

From Midnight Call magazine


The imminency of the rapture is evident.

Those who attempt to determine dates for the Lord's return, foolishly ignore the fact that no time must transpire before the rapture.

When the Lord returns, it will be swiftly and quickly.


"For the grace of God has appeared,

bringing salvation to all men, instructing us

to deny ungodliness and worldly desires

and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age,

13 looking for the blessed hope

and the appearing of the glory

of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus."

- Titus 2: 11 - 13

MC Rapture Rev3

From Midnight Call magazine


The churches of Revelation have application to the church throughout the centuries.

Every church in these letters provides admonishment to live holy in a godless world in light of the Lord's imminent return.


"Because you have kept the word of My perseverance,

I also will keep you from the hour of testing,

that hour which is about to come

upon the whole world,

to test those who dwell on the earth."

- Revelation 3: 10
