Christians believe in the Rapture, which is an English form of the Latin word rapio, which means to snatch up. The Greek word for this is harpazo, found in 1st Thessalonians 4:17. There are three views of the Rapture -- that it will happen at the beginning of earth's final seven years (known as the Tribulation); or in the middle of the seven years; or at the end of the seven years, at the same time as Christ's visible return. All Biblically-informed Christians believe in the Rapture. They differ over when it will happen.
