    I was reading The Third Spiritual Alphabet by Francisco de Osuna the other day and I was intrigued by his use of the word “rapture” to describe the spiritual ecstasy or “the flight of the spirit” which many of the deepest practitioners of christian meditation have experienced.
    As I searched online today, apparently many others agree with his viewpoint and use of the word rapture – including Thomas (the apostle i assume) and Teresa of Avila.
    Is it possible that what is described in Revelation is a coming spiritual awakening the like of which the world has never seen, whereby all true christians (not the ones who merely label themselves so but don’t act like it) will simultaneously experience what has been called “enlightenment” in other traditions?
