Origins of The Rapture


Found this link on line. Some years ago I was involved with a married woman who I eventually learned, with a marked measure of incredulity, believed in The Rapture. In a perverse sort of way her belief satisfactorily explained her behavior for me. I mean if the end is coming and she knows she is already saved what matters cheating? So I did some reading, wanting to know about the doctrine. Origins suprised me to no end. It seems to have been born of a Scottish woman, one Miss Margaret McDonald, who had visions or hallucinations while gravely ill in the early part of 1830. Fascinating story actually. Part of a religious revival historically known as the Second Great Awakening. Please to note my source is solidly, doctrinally, Christian.
