Just had a crazy idea: Rapture this Weekend

Believers should be absolutely opposed to date setting, even though we can clearly see the signs of the time. But for speculation purposes, consider this scenario:

This weekend is Rosh Hashana/Jewish New Year/Feast of Trumpets/next Holy Day that has not yet been sequentially fulfilled by the Messiah.

Consider all the crazy things that have happened in the past 3-4 days. The secularists are now all but gone in the Middle East: Mubarak, Ben Ali, Assad, Qaddafi, the Ba'athists, and the Kemalists are all gone. In their place is a radical Islam dominated land mass stretching from northwest Africa all the way to central Asia.

My thought is this: could this supposed "movie" be a ploy to cover up the rapture? The thought probably doesn't compute yet, but hear me out.

Islamists are now in control of nearly the entire Arab/Islamic world and are calling for the destruction of Israel and the return of the 12th Imam (Imam Mahdi)... their false messiah.

Embassies have been attacked in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Sudan, and reports are trickling in from elsewhere also. There was just a Muslim threat in Austin, Texas and also North Dakota. Muslims are now simultaneously rioting all throughout the Middle East and even in Europe and elsewhere.

If the rapture were to occur literally this weekend, the Mahdi (aka antichrist) could arise from this massive worldwide riot/rebellion (2 Thessalonians 2:3; Daniel 8:23), and declare that he and/or Allah, have removed the infidels/unbelievers from the world.

What makes this scenario chillingly possible is the following passage:

"Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for [that day will not come] until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction." - 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3


Paul indicates here, specifically, that the day we are gathered to Christ (i.e. raptured), cannot happen until a rebellion occurs and the antichrist is revealed. Nice timing with Rosh Hashana too.
