1Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive shall remain and be "Caught Up" together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we be forever with the Lord. The “Catching Away,” Years of study and research have gone into this subject and I have met with some very angry attitudes in regards to the “Rapture.”
Many people are dogmatic about claiming that there is no rapture, or if there is it does not occur until after the tribulation. They scoff and ridicule, saying, “Ha these believers who think they will escape the tribulation, are just not bible believers at all, because we all have to go through tribulation in our lives”. No one denies that the life of a believer has tribulation and I have suffered much tribulation and loss over my life time. I am not complaining about any of it because it has shaped me and made me strong. It has taught me to trust in Abba Father and only His WORD and not man made theories or thoughts that are not aligned to the bible.
PRAY YOU ARE WORTHY TO ESCAPE!
Luke 21:36 (KJV)Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Jesus/Yahshua commands us to watch and to pray always to be accounted worthy to escape these things which are coming and to stand before the son of man. The time we stand before Jesus/Yahshua is at the judgement.
It is saying we must pray and watch to be accounted worthy to escape the coming judgement.
His past judgements were on Pharaoh, Sodom and the Flood and we know full well that Judgement will come at the end of days, which are upon us now.
So already we see in one scripture, the crowd who are scoffing are in denial to the commands of Yahshua.
We are to pray always, not just now and then, but always have in our heart a prayer to be accounted worthy to escape what is coming.
This is just a small snippet of the proof of the rapture before the great tribulation.
The concept of a post tribulation is far too complicated to imagine. In order to move the rapture until after the tribulation you will need to remove a great portion of the bible. I will show you why as we continue.
Amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.
The day of the Lord is referring to end time known as the Last Days, “The great tribulation,” when the wrath of God is poured out on an evil world and it is going to be the worst days on this earth since man began. It will not only involve earth quakes, tsunamis and every imaginable plague of famine and pestilence, fire and destruction and violence, with forced vaccines and complete mind control, with the underworld of demons opened to allow them to enter through a portal to destroy and possess those who have taken the mark of the beast and are in a state of zombie like obedience wearing masks and are controlled by technology through a chip insert, combining mankind with computers forming a new breed, part human, part AI artificial intelligence. That is a time that only a very wicked soul would desire to be involved in. We are told to hate the very sight of sin and the great tribulation will be the most evil and sinful time ever on earth, yet so called believes are rejoicing and calling the overcomers cowards for wanting to be far away from such a demonic time.
The above scriptures should be enough to show that the great tribulation is not for God’s chosen people. He doesn’t want His bride mixed up with it. They believed and obeyed even though they did not see and they are accounted to being worthy of His blood and saving grace.
The Great Tribulation time is for Israel (Jews) and it is even called Jacobs (Israel’s) trouble. Notice several important aspects: 1. Jacob is Israel - Jacob fathered the 12 tribes and was given the name Israel by God (Gen. Gen. 32:28). Thus, this is describing a time of trouble specifically for the Jews. 2. Gathering in the Land - This time of trouble occurs after Israel is gathered back in the Promised Land. 3. Birth Pangs - The passage refers to every man acting “like a woman in labor.” How similar this is to the words of Jesus, “All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Mtt. Mat. 24:8). Sorrows indicates “a pang or throe, especially of childbirth.” 4. A Unique Day - There is no other day like it. 5. Results in Salvation - “But he shall be saved out of it.” 6. Although the Jews undergo an extremely troubling time, salvation comes to them at the end when they finally see the nail prints in his hands and mourn for their King. THE CHURCH AGE MUST END.
The church age has to end and it needs to be removed so that YHVH can turn His time to Israel, the Jews and the unbelievers.
Yahshua tells us that the end day events of His second coming, is going to be as in the days of Noah and Lot, Luke 17:26-30. In which shortly before the flood, Noah was taken into the Ark and the door was shut, closing out the desperate sinful world that had ignored the warnings. Then again only moments before fire and brimstone deluged onto Sodom and Gomorrah, Lot had a narrow escape into a cave with his two daughters.
HIDDEN ON EARTH?
People argue that the church will still be on the earth but will be hidden during the tribulation. That ignores the previous scriptures that say they will be caught up in the air and taken to heaven to be with the Lord. How do they justify ignoring Paul's disclosure? We need to rightly divide the word. If we have two differing scripture references then we need to do more research to validate it either way.
YAHSHUA won’t be here on earth during the great tribulation, so again the being hidden theory has flaws in it. Because the bible tells us He went to Heaven to build an abode for His believers and He is going to come and take them to where He is. John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. If we the overcomers are taken to be for ever with Him then we must be where He is. He resides in Heaven. Therefore when Paul tells us we will be caught up to meet Him in the air he means exactly that. He said He is coming to take us where He is, yet at the second coming He is coming to live and reign here on earth and bring His saints with Him. So which is it? If we are not raptured or we are hidden on earth then that makes the above scriptures incorrect because He tells us that He is coming to the clouds to call up His people and take them to be with Him. They will be with Him in His heavenly home for the 7 year duration of the tribulation period.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. “CAUGHT UP WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR.”
“Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
1 Corinthians 15:52, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
Noah and Lot were hidden that is true, because their time was not the end times. They had to go on and re-inhabit the earth. These examples were to show that the Lord protects and takes His people out of the way before His judgement is poured out on the earth. It also speaks of the evil of the times of Noah when we read that fallen angels were mingling their seed with women.
Genesis 6:1-2; Genesis 6:4.).
This is exactly what is being done again now, the Mixing of DNA. Through COVID Vaccination they will implant the DNA of animals mixed with aborted foetus matter into humans and the world will receive this vaccination thus altering and contaminating humanity and if they do not take this vaccination they will be refused entry into most places, will not receive their pay, nor will they be allowed to operate in the world without having the vaccination which also contains a micro- chip, that connects all to a computer thus creating Artificial Intelligences controlled by technology, using humans as 5G mobile towers, this is why the social distancing is being incorporated now to keep a distance so as to keep signals clear. After the rapture the vaccination/chip will be forced or you will be beheaded. We know that in Noah’s time all but 8 people were contaminated with corrupt seed and altered their DNA, we see in history books images of half man/half animal. These were Egyptian gods and were worshipped and feared.
They are more cunning and subtle now with the mixing of DNA and are injecting with flue injections with mixed DNA seed to contaminate the blood lines. They realise we are not going to be fooled by obvious and primitive means of Genesis 6:2.
We can see also that we are back in the times of Noah and the flood, Lot and Sodom with the entire nations of the world having changed their laws to accommodate gay marriage, (Sodomy).
YAHUAH does not and never has poured wrath and judgement on the righteous.
The end time “Catching Away” Is to give the last 7 years of time known as Jacob’s (Israel’s) troubles as prophesised by Daniel that must be played out for the nation of Israel. This is Daniels timeline. History repeats and as Jesus/Yahshua pointed us to Daniels prophecy when he was describing the end times we can see the events and how they will be played out. Matthew 24:15. “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation, ‘spoken of through the prophet Daniel –let the reader understand. The Catching Away. The concept is that through the saving grace of Yahshua, the church age will end and we will be taken off the earth prior to the great tribulation/wrath of God which is poured out onto a violent and rampaging wicked world.
Great Tribulation Divided into 2 parts. It is divided into two 3 ½ year sections.
The first 3 ½ years will be the great delusion which during this time the people will be lead into a false worship and as we see already at play with the focus of aliens, and space craft sightings, telling us we are not alone.These are no aliens, but are demons and the Pope has told us when they come he will be baptising them. Pope Francis says he would baptise aliens: 'Who are we to close doors? He says' Pontiff made the out-of-this-world pledge during homily on acceptance. With the Vatican telescope called Lucifer we can see that they have been preparing for this day for a very long time
The world will find it hard to discern truth from fiction. They are now making holograms and people from the past are seen on stage as though really performing and this will only become far greater as the first 3 ½ years begins immediately after the rapture, which no doubt they will tell the unsuspecting world that aliens took the people when there is a mass disappearance of people from the earth. 2 Thessalonians 2:11 (KJV) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: Right now they are conditioning the world to take the COVID vaccinations whereas now we are being told that we should take it, and our lives will be altered if we don’t we won’t be able to travel and there will be many restrictions put on us, but we are not being forced or executed at this stage but it is coming when this vaccination chip will implant people or they will be executed by beheading, when they turn to God and refuse to take it during the great tribulation under the reign of the anti-christ. This time will be one of shocking slaughter as the anti-christ does his uttermost to destroy as many of God’s people who were not ready at the rapture but are realising that God is the only way and they are prepared to die for their belief. These are called the tribulation saints in the book of Revelation. 6 8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. 9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
These people turned to God during the great tribulation and were killed for their belief and they do not have a raptured glorified body, they are ‘souls under the alter’ calling on God to avenge their blood.
The final 3 ½ years, Gods wrath will be poured out on the remaining wicked AND evil WORLD. Corona Virus! the beginning of sorrows
We have now entered a time when we are well into the prophecies of the book of revelation, our redemption is nigh and we are being called to WAKE UP and choose whom you will serve!
The ‘corona virus’ is a big clue, a pandemic on a world scale, shows without doubt that we are in the beginning of sorrows as spoken of by Jesus/Yahshua and therefore only the blind could ignore this warning. He listed off all of the signs of the times and then says this is the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24: 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Now is the time spoken of by Jesus/Yahshua.
Nation against nation, famines and pestilences.
The virus is the pestilences, that we are now being conditioned and controlled with. pestilence /ˈpɛstɪl(ə)ns/ noun ARCHAIC 1. a fatal epidemic disease, especially bubonic plague.
Threats of a second wave is coming and it will bring in further restrictions and tighter control with the army being deployed on the citizens as Jacinda Ardhern has announced in NZ. Boris Johnston has told Britian they will be having the COVID vaccination and that the military will be administering much stricter control. President Trump has threatened with military and they are all in position ready and awaiting the rapture so that they can bring in the full force and the COVID vaccination/chipping, and Sunday worship will be forced as the Pope is calling for Sunday a day of rest, shops closed and time to unify the family and people which is part of the delusion of doing it for the good of the people when in fact it is because the anti-christ has his own church and it is all part of the beast system and the false religions of the world they belong to him and he wants the world worshipping him. They are trying to appeal for a unified world and they are bringing in a one world government and one world religion and to the unsuspecting this may seem like a good thing to bring peace and unity, and acceptance of all religions, but it is the opposite to the truth, but many will fall for it and follow along with it thinking they will be enlightened beings with super sophisticated technology and they don’t need God as they have advanced so far they can create and copy all manner of medical, scientific and environmental matters and they have managed to change humans into Artificial Intelligences and can control them through technology. A new breed of slaves will emerge all constantly under the all seeing eye of the illuminati.
TIME LINE We are here………………………The beginning of sorrows. The thing to trigger off the mark of the beast is the “Catching Away,” “Rapture,” of the Church. The wise virgins will be removed from the earth to heaven to escape the Great Tribulation. Matthew 24:8-13 (KJV) 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved
The view that “the rapture,” “Catching Away” of the Saints is not mentioned in the bible is from those who do not have ears to hear or eyes to see. The rapture event is told throughout the Old Testament as well as in the Feasts of the Lord, in the parables, the Jewish wedding tradition, the 3 phase harvest and scriptural reference to it in the New Testament has been told many times over.
The ‘Catching Away,’ which is commonly referred to as ‘The Rapture.’
The Greek word from this term “rapture” is derived and appears in, translation “caught up.” The Latin translation of this verse used the word rapturo, thus where the word rapture comes from. Marriage Covenant and Bride Price.
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Paul teaches that Yahshua will come at some future point in time for those who belong to Him. Those who are the "dead in Christ" will experience their resurrection first and be gifted with glorified bodies and moments later, in the twinkly of an eye, those believers in Yahshua who are alive at that time, will then be instantly transformed from their earthly state to their eternal state, and will not experience death. Instead, they will be ‘caught up’ to be with all those who have previously gone on to be with the Lord and be transferred to heaven.
1 Corinthians 15:51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For the perishable must be clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.…
This is clearly telling us that the mortal body will be changed and the immortal body that is incorruptible will be put on in the twinkling of an eye. This cannot happen at the very end of time as some suppose, because those who are still here on the earth will not inherit imperishable bodies but will go on into the millennial kingdom in mortal bodies. The book of Ezekiel, Isaiah, speaks of the millennial kingdom and they will experience death and grow old, Isaiah 65:20(KJV)20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. So this, group do not have imperishable bodies otherwise they could not grow old and die if they did.
The group in 1 Corinthians clearly are transfigured into immortal bodies. Therefore they are raptured and taken to heaven.
We see in the book of revelation that Yahshua addresses the 7 spirits of the 7 churches. He tells them of their position in their beliefs and points out their good works and reprimands them for their false teachings and weaknesses and calls on them to repent. He accepts one of the churches as those who the door is opened to. Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven; and the first voice which I heard was, as it were, of a trumpet talking with me, which said, “Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter.” Speaking to the church (John is representative of the church) He calls John to come up here, symbolises the (rapture) and then he says he will show what things come here after. So the church is ‘called up’ and in the throne room at this point and then He shows John what comes in the opening of the seals and the pouring of the bowls of wrath on the wicked world. So with one of the churches safely in the throne room He shows what is coming, which is the great tribulation.
His entire attention is on the church in the first 4 books of revelation.
Revelation description matches that of Thessalonians A voice of God, like a trumpet speaking, and a shout to “Come up hither.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (KJV) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Immediately John is commanded “Come up here!” he is transported and sees into the throne room and the 24 elders are seated there, with crowns on their heads. Revelation 4:10. We know through Paul’s writings that the church will be rewarded with crowns and all this is prior to the books being opened and the seals opened and the bowls of wrath being poured out. The church is not mentioned again until chapter 19, when they have had the marriage supper in heaven and are returning with Yahuah to rule and reign over the earth.
In order to rule and reign as Kings there has to be mortals on the earth to reign over. Revelation 5:10And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
The dead raised first and then the followers of Yahshua will be raised up. So how do we explain these verses? It says caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Or how do we explain that we will ever be with the Lord. He is only coming to the clouds and calling us up and we are ever going to be with Him. How can that be if when he comes to the clouds and calls us up to meet him in the air because He is going back to heaven to await the final day when He comes in full view of all the remaining world with His army with Him to live, rule and reign from Jerusalem.
Revelation chapter 5 shows a scroll being presented to Jesus/Yahshua in heaven. This scroll is closed by seven seals that are opened one by one to indicate events that will occur during the great tribulation/ second coming. We see when He speaks to John and shows Him things which must be and what will come He is in the throne room in heaven with the 24 Elders. He shows John the plagues coming on the whole earth, Reminiscent of the 10 plagues to fall on Egypt during the Exodus (Exodus 7-11), a series of catastrophic events will take place during the End Days to enact the judgment of God upon the earth. The seven seals and seven trumpets (the seven bowls and the seven thunders—the latter of which John was not even allowed to write down their specific calamities: (Revelation 10:4), this article will cover the seals and trumpets.
To ignore the above scriptures that tell us we will be caught up in the air, is just plain foolishness, Yahshua declared He would go and prepare mansions in heaven so that we may be where he is in His Father’s house? Yet we are also told that when HE returns at the end of Revelation He will come in full view of those remaining and He will have His saints with Him.
The rapture that will happen in the twinkling of an eye and people will not see them leave they will just become horribly aware the whole world over that a percentage of people have suddenly disappeared off the earth. Yahshua will clearly not be here to rule and reign at this point and as already discussed he is taking us to where He is, that we may be there also. He is in heaven and He is not coming until the end of the tribulation to reign so that is enough to prove the fool hardy who say, Nah there is no rapture until the end? They are correct, there is no rapture for them and they will be left here to face the horror of horror stories and they will find vengeance is of YAHUAH and that alone should make them quake in fear.
Either we accept all scripture and be warned and prepared for the rapture by keeping our garments spotless or we leave off the things we don’t want to hear from the scriptures and suffer Gods wrath.
Millions will die and those who survive will be far too busy running from earth quakes and being picked up by police and taken for the forced chip implant, beaten, robbed, avoiding being eaten due to cannibalism and famine, dragged out of houses and taken to FEMA camps and not heard of again.
Those left behind if they are not destroyed by natural disaster there is no hope of figuring out where the enemy will strike next. The western world will go through famine and find out just what it is like to live as the third world countries. We can already see the looting and violence and hatred being displayed throughout the world as they protest and riot. These who want to be in the great tribulation are probably thinking YAH is going to protect them but He has warned that you do not want to be here and He has given ample evidence that you are to desire to be ready and waiting for Him with your lamps full, obediently as He does not have interest at this point in a rebellious person. I hardly feel there will be any sympathy spared for those who actively wanted to be here for the great tribulation. We are told even the animals will turn on those left behind, not to mention demons, hybrids, cannibalism, creatures of giant proportions. The fallen angels will be released again so the time is of the most horrendous extremes that John was not even to disclose the events of much of this time and any who say Oh what cowards for trying to escape, are just so foolish and disobedient beyond any ones imagination to even think this is a place for a good and decent God fearing human to be.
By all means desire the time of great tribulation but you go into this without protection from YAHUAH and you will suffer the consequences of your disobedience for rejecting the free gift of grace that was offered to all. You do this with the unbelieving and the wicked world and you will suffer the wrath of God. God intends to raise up 12,000 from each tribe and that is not you. He already knows whom He will raise and they are not affiliated with religions and they have been prepared for this role since the beginning. There is no real description of who they are or where they come from other than they represent the 12 tribes of Israel they are pure an undefiled with women, which means they are not of any religious denomination or religious belief systems, they are an army of truth and obedience.
You have been commanded to be ready and waiting so He can remove you from out of satan’s grasp. But that is your choice.
At this time demonic spirit beings will be released from the underworld. Human flesh is no match for these great evil beings who have been kept in chains and reserved until this time. Good luck staying here with that. Frankly I am tired of the evil of this world as it is, and we are told to hate the very sight of sin. To the foolish who say there is no rapture after the bible contains so much information on it, only the blind could have missed it and if they think with all of that written about the, “catching away,” that a loving ABBA will now say to His bride, “I am going to jilt you at the altar?” “I will not be coming in the clouds to take you to my father’s house and you can stay here and try your luck with these demonic monsters,” Really? Are you kidding? It is blasphemous to say that our almighty YHVH will be so deceiving to throw His beloved bride into a satanic debauchery and if that is your opinion of YHVH then it is best that you stay behind and suffer the wrath that is deserving of such a foolish attitude to reject Yahshua’s work at the cross to make what in your mind is to make some kind of hero of yourself?
Maybe these scoffers have mixed it up with the verses where Israel is told once, certain events happen they will need to flee to the hills because 1/3 of Israel will be destroyed, their women raped and every horror imaginable to befall them. That is not the church! The church are under His grace by keeping His commandments they are promised grace and salvation, in His saving blood and for any to teach you differently they have no place teaching at all.
Most of us are aware that the Jews are almost ready to rebuild the third Temple in the very near future and this is probably where the abomination will take place standing in the Holy Place. This is all to do with Israel. The church is not mentioned in Revelation after the first 4 chapters, nor is it part of the third temple and the Jews.
Matthew 24:15 So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination of desolation,’ described by the prophet Daniel (let the reader understand), 16 then let those in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let no one on the housetop come down to retrieve anything from his house.…
This scripture says those in Judea flee to the mountains.
The church are not in Judea. The Jews are in Judea. Judea is where the name Jew derives from.
Clearly we have two different groups. 1. Israel the nation of Jews. 2. Spiritual Israel the Church.
In Matthew: Yahshua was speaking to the Jews from the Mt of Olives.
In Thessalonians Paul; Speaking to the church where he divulged the ‘catching away,’ THE MYSTERY that only he was to reveal. He revealed this some years after the crucifixion. So there are two separate events spoken of.
The fleeing to the mountains can only be during the tribulation because at the time of Yahshua telling them on the Mount of Olives that they would be fleeing to the mountains, Paul had not yet been given the revelation of the rapture. So that alone proves that the fleeing to the mountains is not YHVH hiding the church during the tribulation and it is the Jews in Israel who will need to flee to the mountains.
All must rightly divide the word. There are so many false preachers who are jumbling it all in together and deceiving the believers.
You cannot take out sets of scriptures that say they will be caught up in the air and taken to heaven. And say nah that won’t happen?
Clearly two different groups and two differing circumstances and it is up to us to discern and separate the events and put them into the correct context.
2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
We see the beast system is very much at work with COVID – 19 and lockdown and the destroying of democracy with migrant Muslim illegal immigration and black against white. The devil has stirred up all of this and is also attacking our children with LBGT corruption in the schools, gay marriage and abortion laws legalised. Children’s rebellion and disrespect of parents, and Police being attacked and every shocking evil happening to animals and destruction of society to the point of no return. It has gone too far now and there is only one way out and that is through the atoning blood of Yahshua and if you accept Him now and pray you are accounted worthy to escape these things that are coming on the whole world then you will be saved, but time is short and the decision is yours. Don’t be the foolish virgins running around trying to buy oil at the last minute because we are in the last minutes and your lamps need to be full, it takes time to fill them with the word of truth.
Only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
He who is restraining can only be the Ruach Ha kodesh (Spirit). Again people come up with many theories but nothing on earth has the power to restrain other than the Ruach Ha kodesh. The spirit resides in the believers and that is what is restraining h'satan from embodying and operating in his full power. That is why the evil agenda to close down the church and have them silenced without a voice because the power of the true believers is too powerful for the anti-christ to move in the way he desires to go.
Many try to argue saying the spirit is everywhere so cannot be taken out of the way.
We see the events of Job where God pulled back and allowed h'satan to have his way with Job as long as he did not kill him.
God has already stepped aside and very soon He will remove His spirit completely through His spirit filled church and let the anti-christ rule the unbelieving world un-restrained to kill and do as he wills with whomever he chooses for 3 ½ years and there will be no intervention from YHVH.
If people decide to turn to YHVH during the great tribulation they will have to have their own blood shed and die for their belief and they will be given the choice to take the chip/mark of the beast or be beheaded and slaughtered. This involves the chip and the Sunday worship and the false Roman system. Many will argue that the mark of the beast is only the chip but that is not correct it is both combined. Sunday worship is the mark of the satanic church and the chip is how h'satan will have license and opportunity to force and slaughter those who don’t take it. That is a YHVH given last chance to choose Him and not the satanic worship.
When God pulls back and takes away His covering and allows h'satan to rule then the anti-christ will take control for 3 ½ years according to the prophesy of Daniel. 12:2-10.
Isaiah visions of the end time events.
Isaiah 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be over past.
The Jewish wedding chamber.
In the Jewish wedding we know that the bride and groom enter their chamber and stay there for one week of 7 days. The time of the tribulation is 7 years and this correlates to the 7- day time frame in thy chambers. The entire Jewish Wedding ceremony is a replica of the rapture.
Our groomsman is a Jewish King. The Wedding Model. All through the Gospels, Yahshua relied on the ancient Jewish wedding pattern for many of His parables, climaxing in His promise in the Upper Room in John 14. Many of us miss the full import of these allusions if we aren't familiar with the model of ancient Jewish wedding practices. Jewish Wedding. The first step, the Ketubah, or Betrothal, was the establishment of the marriage covenant, usually when the prospective bridegroom took the initiative and negotiated the price he must pay to purchase her. Yahshua purchased us with His blood. The bridegroom goes to the pending bride’s house to ask her father for her hand in marriage. On gaining acceptance he then pours the wine and offers it to her, if she takes the cup and drinks she accepts the proposal of marriage. Yahshua called His disciples to the Upper Room and at this time He gave His proposal and offered the wine, stating he would not drink from this cup again until He is again with them in His father’s Kingdom. Matthew 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom. HE intends to have that drink with His believers in His father’s kingdom. No person is in His father’s kingdom at this point they are in paradise awaiting the judgement and therefore Yahshua was speaking to His overcomers whom He is betrothed to and He is going to take them to His Father’s Kingdom. This is a perfect replica of the betrothal, stating His faithfulness and commitment to His bride. The Jewish apostles would understand this well and they accepted the wine and drank with Him thus committing to the marriage union. The Bridegroom Price. Once the bridegroom paid the purchase price, the marriage covenant was established, and the young man and woman were regarded as husband and wife. From that moment on, the bride was declared to be consecrated or sanctified - set apart - exclusively for her bridegroom. Just as we who accept our bridegroom are sanctified and set apart and enter into His kingdom here on earth we are no longer of the world but are betrothed to our bridegroom. As a symbol of the covenant relationship that had been established, the groom and bride drank from a cup of wine over which the betrothal had been pronounced. Similarly we see Yahshua take the cup and drink the wine which is His betrothal to the church. After the marriage covenant was established, the groom left his bride at her home and returned to his father's house, where he remained separated from his bride for approximately 12 months. John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. This afforded the bride time to gather her trousseau and prepare for married life. It has given the bridegroom time to prepare a home for His bride. The church has had 2000 years to prepare and become spotless brides for our bridegroom. During this period of separation, the groom prepared a dwelling place in his father's house to which he would later bring his bride. At the end of the period of separation, the future home for the bride was prepared and the Father of the groom would say it is time to go and collect your bride. The bridegroom went out - usually at night - to take his bride to live with him. Although the bride was expecting her groom to come for her, she did not know the time or hour of his coming. As a result, the groom's arrival was preceded by a shout, which announced her departure to be gathered with him to His father’s house. After the groom received his bride, together with her female attendants, the enlarged wedding party departed to the groom's father's house, where the wedding guests had assembled. Shortly after their arrival, the bride and groom were escorted by the other members of the wedding party to the bridal chamber (Chuppah). Prior to entering the chamber, the bride remained veiled so that no one could see her face. While the groomsmen and bridesmaids waited outside, the bride and groom entered the bridal chamber alone. There, in the privacy of that place, they entered into physical union for the first time, thereby consummating the marriage that had been covenanted approximately one year earlier. After the marriage was consummated, the groom came out of the bridal chamber and announced the consummation of the marriage to the members of the wedding party waiting outside. Then, as the groom went back to his bride in the chamber, the members of the wedding party returned to the wedding guests and announced the consummation of the marriage. Upon receiving the good news, the wedding guests remained in the groom's father's house for the next seven days, celebrating with a great wedding feast. During the seven days of the wedding feast, the bride and groom remained hidden in the bridal chamber. It is a depiction of the seven year tribulation with the Bride not on the earth but with the Lord in His father’s house and is away getting acquainted in the marriage. Yahshua told us He would go and prepare a place for us and return and take us to His father’s house in heaven. Clearly it is not here on the earth. To ignore the word and make your own assumptions because you don’t understand how our almighty YHWH can pull off such a glorious and miraculous event then you don’t know Him at all. He said I will come and call you up to the clouds and give you a new glorified body and take you to the place I have prepared for you and the doubters say, ‘Nah that won’t happen???’ We are commanded not to take from and therefore to ignore the process of the betrothal and the parables and scriptures simply to prove that there is no rapture or catching away is a very luke warm believer and a false teacher. Mentioned in revelation and Jesus/Yahshua spoke of this church as the Ladocean church, the end time church and He will spew them out of His mouth. (Genesis 29:21-23, 27-28) for the seven days of the chuppah. Afterwards, the groom came out of hiding, bringing his bride with him, but with her veil removed so that everyone could see her. Yahshua will return with His glorious bride and she will be with Him when He makes His entry to earth appearing in the clouds for all to see and with Him to present her to the whole world and to end the wickedness, destroy the evil world and reign here with him as kings and Priest over the earth. Revelation 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. Who will they rule over? If there are no people here when He comes back as the post tribulation crowd insinuates that they will all be caught up at the end of the great tribulation? Or, the false SDA theory that says there will be no earthly kingdom and that they will all be raptured into heaven for 1000 years millennium? They need to read Ezekiel which describes in detail the 1000 year millennial reign or Isaiah who describes life for mortals who will live and die, here in an earthly kingdom during the millennial reign. Isaiah 65: 19I will rejoice in Jerusalem and take delight in My people. The sounds of weeping and crying will no longer be heard in her. 20 No longer will a nursing infant live but a few day, or and old man not live out his days. For the youth will die at a hundred years, and he who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed. 21 They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.… For the rapture to follow the post tribulation it would mean He comes in the clouds with His saints turns around and goes back to heaven to the Fathers house?? At the same time he stands with His feet on the Mt of Olives and defeats all the nations who have come against Israel and rules and reigns here on earth 1000 years all happening at once. The scripture tell us that a man when he marries he cannot go to war yet for twelve months Deuteronomy 24 5. Clearly when He comes at the end of time at the second coming he brings all the nations together for judgement. He will destroy those who have fought against Israel as He comes to war and brings His faithful army with him. That is impossible to rapture to heaven in amongst all of these events. He is a God of order and that would be absolute chaos and mayhem to rapture the last standing people and do all of the rest of the steps at the same time. The post tribulation claim is just ridiculous and doesn’t make sense at all and it is false and do not allow anyone to tell you the lie that the rapture is at the end of the great tribulation. This is just a ploy to stop people from preparing as commanded and to be complacent and foolish virgins who just don’t have oil in their lamps. The Ultimate Bride The New Testament portrays the Church as the Bride of Christ in Ephesians 5:22-33 (Paul even quotes Genesis 2:24 as the union at the Parousia of the Bridegroom in v.31!); cf. Romans 7:4; 2 Corinthians 11:2; James 4:4. In the opening verses of John 14, the marriage covenant is confirmed. Paul continually reminds us of the purchase price and the covenant by which we, the Bride, are set apart, or sanctified. The Departure of the Bridegroom The Bridegroom has departed, 2000 years ago and His return to gather His Bride is imminent. He has gone to prepare a place for you and me. (He has been at it for 2,000 years! It must be a spectacular abode!) This very doctrine of "imminence" is taught throughout the New Testament and is a cornerstone of the "pre-tribulational" view: there is no event which is a prerequisite condition for His gathering of His Bride. It will happen at a time that the Father declares to Yahshua, your home is prepared for her, go and collect your Bride. We are all to be ready and waiting and watching for our Bridegroom. As portrayed through the 5 wise virgins and are ready because they had their lamps full of oil. Virgins is reference to not affiliated with religions but are keeping the commandments as they did in the NT times. Seventh day Sabbath keeping, festivals observed and know and preach His truth.
Scriptural proof of the rapture. Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
He will keep His believers from the hour of temptation that will come upon the whole world.
1 Thessalonians 1:10 - And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, [even] Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
Delivered from the wrath. The only time Gods wrath is poured out is at judgement. We are about to enter God’s final judgement on the world. His bride have already cleansed their robes and made them white and will receive their rewards (crowns). They are not under judgement.
1 Thessalonians 5: 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
Paul tells us we are not appointed to wrath but to obtain salvation in Yahshua Ha Mashiach.
White Robes in Heaven. We read in Revelation where the church is in Heaven in white robes and then they return with Him for all the world to see Yahshua coming in the clouds accompanied by His Army and His angels dressed in fine linen robes, clean and white. Revelation 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
We know this is the church returning with him because they are wearing, the fine linen robes of that which was granted the church. Revelation 4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
Paul spoke of the 5 crowns awarded to the overcoming church in heaven.
In the book of Revelation the church was the only conversation that Yahshua had with John up until this above verse and then it was not mentioned again, the seals were then opened and the bowls of wrath poured out and nothing more of the church mentioned until chapter 19 where He is preparing to bring His bride with Him as she has made herself ready and is coming with Him to return to earth to destroy the wicked and judge the world.
