"THERE ARE 'TWO WAYS' THE COMPLETE CHURCH ENTERS INTO HEAVEN"
There are 'two parts' to
the Church on earth, and 'each part' enters Heaven separately. The
'firstfruits' of the Church (the Bride of Christ) will be raptured to
Heaven on a future Pentecost, thus avoiding the Great Tribulation on
earth, according to:
"They are the firstfruits (the raptured Church) to the Lord."
"even now He harvests the crop(raptures the Church)for eternal life,"
'balance' of the Church enters into the "Great Tribulation" on earth to
gain sanctification (ie. they wash their robes) before entering Heaven
"These are they who have come
out of the Great Tribulation; they have washed their robes and made
them white in the Blood of the Lamb."
The 'Bride of Christ' also
known as the 'firstfruits' of His Church are the 'dead in Christ' who
rise first, and then the 'living in Christ' who are gathered up
together with them to meet the Lord in the air according to:
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
Come Lord Jesus!
