"SCRIPTURE STATES THAT WE ARE SAVED and RESCUED BY THE 'PRE-WRATH' RAPTURE......"Hi:I don’t think the wise virgins are going to be caught up on the Day of God’s Wrath. The following scriptures apply to the saints coming out of the Great Tribulation on the Day of God’s Wrath, which include the 144,000 Israelites and the great number that no one can count, including the foolish virgins.Rev 6:17: “ For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”Rev 7:1 “ And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.Rev 7:2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,Rev 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. “Rev 7:9 “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; “Rev 7:13 “And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of GREAT TRIBULATION, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.Rev 7:15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him “There are two Raptures. The first one, the First-Trump Rapture, is described in I Thess 4:16,17. The second one, the Last-Trump Rapture, is described in I Cor 15:51-54. They are not the same. You can’t have a “last” until you have had a “first.” Only at the time of the Last-Trump Rapture do the saved become immortal. We become incorruptible at the first Rapture and immortal at the last Rapture. Here are the scriptures.AT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE,THERE IS NO MENTION OF THE 144,000 ISRAELITES OR OF ANYONE BEING MADE IMMORTAL1Th 4:15 “For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent (Old English for precede) them which are asleep.1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with THE TRUMP OF GOD: (ie, the first trump of God) and the dead in Christ shall rise first (probably on fIRSTFRUITS, May 8, 2012):1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds (probably on THURSDAY, ASCENSION DAY, May 17, 2012, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.1Th 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words. “AT THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, ALL ARE MADE IMMORTAL1Co 15:51 “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall ALL (including PAUL) be changed,1Co 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 (including Paul) shall be changed.1Co 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption (i.e., this happens at both Raptures), and this mortal must put on immortality (only at the last Rapture).1Co 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption (i.e., at either Rapture), and this mortal shall have put on immortality (i.e., at the last Rapture), then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. “WE ARE NOT MADE IMMORTAL UNTIL THE TRIBULATION SAINTS ARE IN HEAVEN BECAUSE THE 144,000 ARE ADDED TO THE WISE-VIRGIN GROUP OF SAINTS THAT WERE CAUGHT UP IN THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTUREIt looks like the 144,000 will be added to the wise-virgin group who sing the “NEW SONG” in Rev 5:9. It says, “ And they sung a NEW SONG, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation”.Rev 14:1 says, “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.Rev 14:2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:Rev 14:3 And they sung as it were a NEW SONG before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.Rev 14:4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for THEY ARE VIRGINS. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the FIRSTFRUITS unto God and to the Lamb.Rev 14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.”THESE APPLY TO THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF THE WISE VIRGINS1Th 4:16 “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:1Th 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.1Th 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words”Rev 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 shew thee things which must be hereafter.Rev 4:2 And immediately I was (lit., became) in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.Rev 4:3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper (first stone in the breastplate) and a sardine stone (last stone in the breastplate): and there was a rainbow round about the throne (i.e., Saturn), in sight like unto an emerald (Judah’s stone in the breastplate).Rev 4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats (lit., thrones): and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.”John was actually one of the 24 elders. They are the 12 patriarchs and the 12 apostles of Israel. John was both narrator and actor in the miracle play “The Revelation of Jesus Christ.”That brings up another subject. How was Christ revealed? He was revealed as both the first and the last, LORD of the Old Testament and Lord of the New Testament. He was both God and man.Rev 1:8 " I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. “Rev 22:13 “ I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”Isa 44:6 says, “ Thus saith the LORD (YHWH) the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD (YHWH) of hosts; I am the first (YHWH king of Israel), and I am the last (YHWH, the redeemer, the Lord of hosts); and beside me there is no God.”It was Christ on the sapphire pavement at Mt. Sinai. Sapphire means dear to the planet Saturn, from the Sanskrit Sani (Saturn) and priya (dear).Exo_24:10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.”It was actually Christ sitting on the throne in Rev 4:2,3. That’s why the lamb was used in Rev 5:6 to represent his taking the little book. No wonder Jesus, in John_10:30, said, “ I and my Father are one.”In John 10:38, he said, “ the Father is in me, and I in him.”2Co_5:19 says, “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. “Agape,Marilyn Agee

"SCRIPTURE STATES THAT WE ARE SAVED and RESCUED BY THE 'PRE-WRATH' RAPTURE......"
The definition of the word 'rescue': saved from a dangerous situation
or to keep from being lost.
"Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be
SAVED FROM WRATH through Him."
1 Thessalonians 1:10
"and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead -
Jesus, who RESCUES US from the coming WRATH."
1 Thessalonians 5:9
"for God did not appoint us to WRATH, but to obtain salvation through
our Lord Jesus Christ."
"For the great DAY OF HIS WRATH has come, and who is able to stand?"
"and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the
face of Him who sits on the throne and FROM THE WRATH OF THE LAMB."
The ones who are "able to stand" on "the great day of His wrath" are
those who are rescued and saved by being raptured by our Lord Jesus
Christ. The ones who are left-behind on "the great day of His wrath"
will try to hide "from the wrath of the Lamb."
Scripture states that, without a doubt, we are saved and rescued by
our Lord Jesus Christ in the pre-wrath rapture.
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
