"Rapture shown in 2Esdras Chapter 2 ????????????"
Rapture shown in 2Esdras Chapter 2 ????????????
*DISCLAIMER: I am NOT date setting, simply showing the very likely possibility that the Rapture may happen on a Feast (this is the first of the ‘written words’ that states such)
When reading the Apocrypha 2 Esdras Chapter 2 (Tom Horn’s version) and I see that that 2 Esdras Chapter 2 starts out speaking about the Jews and how they refused the words of Esdras so he turned to the nations (Gentiles) “Church” and then speaks of the full number of them being sealed on “The Feast of the Lord” and putting off mortal to put on immortal it just kept getting more and more interesting! I will not put the entire chapter here and Tom Horn’s version has a few different words than this one below but you will get the main idea
Also how when the day of trouble comes others will weep but we will rejoice. It is best to read the entire chapter in context. Yes, they receive palms, but read slowly and carefully. These are not tribulation martyrs.
Here is just one example: “Tell my people that I will give them the kingdom of Jerusalem, which I would have given unto Israel.”
Tom Horn’s version is better but I couldn’t type it all by hand. Read in context, it is NOT referring to sealing the 144,000 or the tribulation saints. This is speaking to the Church. It shows how Jesus places crowns on our heads and when Esdras asks “who are these” he gets his answer. Oh Zion means a new administration and it refers to this group other than the Jews as being clothed in white. Read and determine for yourselves understanding that this is interesting but not Cannon of scripture.
Apocrypha: 2 Esdras Chapter 2
Praying for Trumpets!
