"On the 3rd Day"
Hi doves. I haven't posted in a while, but I have
been reading and I too feel something is getting ready to happen (more
on that in my other post). I've heard about the 3rd day having
significance concerning the rapture and I agree. Just thought I would
add a couple of more scriptures to support this:
6:1 COME, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and
he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will
raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
my reading of Chapter 2 of John, which talks about the first miracle of
Jesus (water to wine), I believe the Lord showed me a picture of the
rapture of which I had not noticed before. I'm not going to include
every verse; just enough so you might be encouraged as to what I saw.
John 2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him,
They have no wine.
7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they
filled them up to the brim.
8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the
governor of the feast. And they bare it.
9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made
wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the
water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth
good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but
thou hast kept the good wine until now.
I could be
interpreting this wrong, but it seems to me that this resembles a
rapture on the third day. Jesus and his disciples are called to the
marriage. The water is converted to good wine (the saints/elect with
glorified bodies, corruptible to incorruptible, mortal to immortal).
The good wine is drawn out (raptured?) and presented to the governor of
the feast (The Father?). And then Jesus, the bridegroom is called.
