While many Christians believe that Jesus is coming soon, they debate the theology of the rapture, when it will happen, and if it is real.

In a rapture, all believers would be suddenly taken up to be with God. Others would be left behind on earth during a time of tribulation. Christians who believe in the rapture say it is referenced in 1 Thessalonians, which describes a moment when Jesus is coming with a shout and then, “we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.”
