THREE RAPTURES PART 2
OVERVIEW, OUTLINE AND NEW REVELATION
This post is a follow up to my post of yesterday. There are so many interesting things to look at when researching this possibility of three Raptures. In this post I would like to outline the basics of what I posted yesterday, and to add some more interesting aspects that have come to light. I am so thrilled, because all of a sudden I am beginning to understand how everything fits together, and it really feels right, at least to my heart and mind.OVERVIEW:
SEVEN WEEKS OF HARVEST EQUALS THE SEVEN YEAR TRIBULATION
THREE EVENTSThere are three events that we have been looking for to happen before the Rapture, but, now, knowing there could be three raptures, we can see that there are three separate events that take place before each of these raptures.
These three events are the (1)the falling away (2) revealing of Antichrist, and (3) Antichrist establishing himself in the temple claiming to be God.
The first event is the Bride being raptured out of the end time Church. The end time church has gone apostate from the true faith. This departure, and/or divorce, from this apostasy, is the first Rapture. The Bride Departs, FALLS AWAY or divorces the Apostate Church; and marries Christ.
The second Rapture is Mid-Tribulation, and this is when the Anti-Christ is revealed, (the second event) but before he comes to full power, and turns against Israel. REMEMBER HE COMES IN PEACE, FIRST.
The third rapture happens after the third event, when the Anti-Christ comes into full power and declares himself God. He will then persecute the believers that have been saved by the 144,000(the Man-child of the Woman, Israel, that has already been raptured to heaven, Mid-Trib).CHRIST DEALS WITH THE BRIDE FIRSTTHE CHURCH SECONDAND ISRAEL (THE JEWISH NEW BELIEVERS) THIRDOUTLINE:
FIRST RAPTURE IS THE BRIDETHIS IS PRE-TRIBULATIONBARLEY HARVESTFEAST OF PENECOST(I, now, believe that the 144,000 will be sealed on Ascension Day and the rapture will be on Pentecost).SONG OF THE LAMBALL MATURE CHRISTIANS DEAD AND ALIVE(There will be a great multitude of mature Christians from over 2,000 years!!! They have palm branches; they DID recognize the Messiah the first time!!!). Also, they will rule in Heaven with Christ.SECOND RAPTURETHIS IS MID-TRIBULATIONWHEAT HARVESTFEAST OF TRUMPETSSONG OF MOSES AND SONG OF THE LAMBTHIS IS THE TWO WITNESSES AND THE 144,000THEY ALSO WILL RULE IN HEAVEN WITH CHRIST, THE ARE PART OF THE BRIDE.THIRD RAPTURETHIS IS PRE-WRATHGRAPE HARVESTFEAST OF TABERNACLESSONG OF MOSES AND THE LAMBTHESE ARE THE TRIBULATION SAINTS, BOTH GENTILES AND JEWS.THEY WILL RULE ON THE EARTH WITH CHRIST.
THE GRAPE HARVEST IS RIGHT BEFORE JESUS COMES TO EARTH….THEY WILL BE HARVESTED, AT THE LAST MOMENT BEFORE GOD’S WRATH IS POURED OUT ON THOSE REMAINING.THOSE NOT RAPTURED WILL BE PROTECTED AND THEY WILL POPULATE THE EARTH IN THE NEW MILLINIUM.ALL THESE GROUPS ARE PART OF THE FIRST RESSURECTION.THE REST OF THE DEAD DO NOT RISE FOR 1,000 YEARS.
THE TWO WITNESSES ARE ENOCH AND ELIJAH THE TWO RAPTURED, WHILE ALIVE. THE FIRST TWO WITNESSES, OF THE RAPTURE EXPERIENCE, OUT OF THE SEVEN RAPTURES THAT TAKE PLACE.
THE 144,000 THOUSAND ARE THE SOULS UNDER THE ALTER, IN THE FIFTH SEAL JUDGEMENT, THAT ARE GIVEN WHITE ROBES (RESURRECTED BODIES). THIS IS THE SEAL OF GOD THEY ARE GIVEN RIGHT BEFORE THE RAPTURE OF THE BRIDE. THEY ARE THE OLD TESTAMENT SAINTS FROM THE ORIGINAL 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL, (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF EPHRIAM AND DAN).THE GREAT REVIVAL IN THE CHURCH, (THE LATTER RAIN) COMES AFTER THE FIRST RAPTURE, NOT BEFORE!!! WHEN THE BRIDE IS TAKEN THESE FOOLISH VIRGINS WILL REALIZE THE TRUTH AND BE ON FIRE FOR THE LORD!!! THEY WERE BORN AGAIN, (HAD OIL IN THEIR LAMPS) BUT WERE NOT, YET, MATURE. THEY WILL MATURE, AND IN THE PROCESS SAVE MILLIONS!!! I BELIEVE THEY WILL BE RAPTURED MID-TRIB.THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT TAKEN FROM THE EARTH, BUT REMAINS IN THESE FOOLISH VIRGINS, THE 144,000, THE TWO WITNESSES, AS WELL AS THE ANGEL WITH THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL.GOD IS MERCIFUL, GOD IS ALL LOVE!!! HE WANTS EVERY LAST ONE OF US TO BE SAVED!!!!
There you have it…I am so thrilled!!! Once I started really looking this, the Book of Revelation has become a whole different experience!!! I really feel at peace with what I have discovered. It did not come from me, but from the Holy Spirit. I am sure there is much more to talk about, and many scriptures to include, but wanted to get this out there, and have you all help me with it, if you feel so inclined.
I still firmly believe that the Rapture of the Bride will happen this year…most likely Pentecost. But I am back to the Tribulation being 7 years, not just 3 and one half. I now believe that the Temple will be rebuilt as part of the Anti-Christ’s peace process. Maybe even the old city of Babylon will be rebuilt, as I think there are 3 Babylons portrayed in the end times. Also, I am beginning to believe, that maybe part of the strong delusion, that God sends, is the theory that there is but one Rapture.
Just a quick side note: There have been many posts about 5,6,7…that I did not really understand. But, now, knowing there are 7 Raptures in the Bible, it makes sense. The last three would be considered the fifth, sixth, and seventh, or 5, 6, and 7?? Just a thought.May we all be spiritually mature Christians, watching and praying and filled with the Holy Spirit as we await our Blessed Hope!!!Maranatha!
