"TO: Jennie RE: Your Post (15 Jan 2011)"
I completely agree with
you! I also do not believe that Rev. 4 is the rapture of 'His Church'.
Jesus's purpose for John in Rev. Chapters 4, 5, 6 & 7 is to witness
and write, for us, what Jesus is going to do leading 'UP TO AND
INCLUDING' the rapture of His Church.
"Write therefore what you have seen, what is now, and what will take place later." (This is for His Church's benefit.)
Chapter 8 is 'the opening' of the Seventh Seal. 'His Church', the
'Multitude Saints', will be in Heaven "standing before the
throne, and in front of the Lamb while wearing white robes" when the
Seventh Seal is opened.
Your Brother in Christ,
