      Raptures and Resurrections (for scholars made easy)


      Hebrew tradition: On Pentacost is the Feast of Harvests the 𝑓𝑖𝑟𝑠𝑡𝑓𝑟𝑢𝑖𝑡𝑠 are gathered. Then on Hebrew new years is the Feast of Trumpets and the main harvest. Then the fields are burned.



      𝗠𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘄 𝟮𝟰: 𝟮𝟵 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒖𝒏 𝒃𝒆 𝒅𝒂𝒓𝒌𝒆𝒏𝒆𝒅, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒎𝒐𝒐𝒏 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒈𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒍𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒕𝒂𝒓𝒔 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝒇𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝒇𝒓𝒐𝒎 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒏, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒑𝒐𝒘𝒆𝒓𝒔 𝒐𝒇 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒏𝒔 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝒃𝒆 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒌𝒆𝒏:

      30 And then shall appear the SIGN of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

      31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his 𝐸𝐿𝐸𝐶𝑇 from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.


      (the "Day of the Lord", see Joel 2)

      𝗥𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝟲:𝟭𝟮 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒖𝒏 𝒃𝒆𝒄𝒂𝒎𝒆 𝒃𝒍𝒂𝒄𝒌 𝒂𝒔 𝒔𝒂𝒄𝒌𝒄𝒍𝒐𝒕𝒉 𝒐𝒇 𝒉𝒂𝒊𝒓, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒎𝒐𝒐𝒏 𝒃𝒆𝒄𝒂𝒎𝒆 𝒂𝒔 𝒃𝒍𝒐𝒐𝒅;

      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. …


      𝐑𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝟏𝟒:𝟑 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand…

      4 …These were redeemed from among men, being the 𝒇𝒊𝒓𝒔𝒕𝒇𝒓𝒖𝒊𝒕𝒔 unto God and to the Lamb.


      (Post-tribulation/ first resurrection)


      𝟭𝗧𝗵𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗮𝗹𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗮𝗻𝘀 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:

      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.


      𝟏𝐂𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐬 𝟏𝟓:𝟐𝟑 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then cometh the end


      51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

      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 shall be changed.


      𝐑𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝟐𝟎:𝟓 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. 𝑻𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒊𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒇𝒊𝒓𝒔𝒕 𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒖𝒓𝒓𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏.


      (Resurrection of the unjust)

      𝐉𝐨𝐡𝐧 𝟓:𝟐𝟗 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.


      𝐑𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝟐𝟎:𝟏𝟐 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

      13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.


      (sons of perdition)

      𝐌𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐰 𝟏𝟐:𝟑𝟏 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

      32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.


      𝐑𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝟐𝟎:𝟏𝟒 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

      15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

      The Teachers, Pastors, Scholars, and Christian followers of The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Doctrine of 19th Cent. A.D., they are all ESCAPE ARTISTS… they will bend, twist, take the verses out of context, misinterpret, disregard other verses and even try to null and void the whole Matthew 29, and say it was not for the Christian but only for the Jews, and some said, it was supposed to be in the Old Testament, but accidentally included in the New Testament of the bible, just to pursue their Doctrine… but overwhelming evidence that their Doctrine was not TRUE…

      They kept on saying and predicting the dates since from the19th Cent. up to the present day of the 21st Cent. A.D., telling us, "the RAPTURE is coming, sell all our properties and donate them to the Church, if we want to be included in the coming Rapture, etc"… The last anticipated Rapture was last Sept. 2021 during the "Trumpet Year" of the Jews but unfortunately did not happen, and now they are predicting and anticipating Rapture by Sept. 2022 to happen during the "Shemitah Year" of the Jews… if this does not happen… what next, 2029 perhaps, and so on?

      They do not want to patiently WATCH for the SIGNS given to us by God to happen first and unfold to our very eyes, because they believe Christ Jesus will come back any moment without signs to rescue and save the Church thru Rapture before the Persecution of the Anti-Christ begin or commonly called Tribulation… According to the Bible, God had promised the Church will escape or save/spare (not harm) from the "WRATH OF GOD" only but not from the Persecution of the Anti-Christ/the Man of Lawlessness (Tribulation)… They believe that the Persecution of the Anti-Christ is "PART" of the Wrath of God (Day of the Lord)… but the Bible clearly debunked/disagreed with this belief/claim…

      All they do was Mathematical Calculations starting from Prophet Daniel's 70th Week Prophecy to the Book of Revelation… They are truly like the "boy who cried wolf."… It will truly soon bring forth APOSTASY to the Christian Community of believers as Prophesied in the Bible as one of the SIGNS given… Amen.

      A Jewish wedding is the strongest defense of a pre trib rapture?! That’s ridiculous 🤯 we are told not to obey the traditions of man over and over… God doesn’t put stock in something that the Jews made up. Matthew 24 is very clear, just read it. When Jesus first came, who got it right? Who amongst His disciples understood that He was going to die? Is it any wonder that people can be wrong about round 2? Pre trib is what Americans have used to lean on no tribulation at all. People get ready, it’s coming to a house near you and our job is to endure for the sake of Jesus Christ! Matthew 24:13… saved doesn’t mean born again, it means delivered

    • Isaiah 53

      Atomic Rapture (1 minute 12)
      ATOMOS = 1 COR. 15:52🔥

      22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet
      22 = Last chapter of bible
      "2.2 Acts" Grace age starts
      22 Grace age ends?
      2022nd word = window צהר
      2/22/22 = Occurs when Israel is 73
      2 by 2 into the ark
      H2022 = Mountain
      H2022 = "unto the hills" Ps. 121.1-2
      G2022 = To pour upon
      222 = Wisdom KJV count
      73 = Wisdom (חָכְמָה)
      73 = Israel's age in 2022
      73 = 80 (Ps. 90.10) – 7 (Dan. 9.27)
      7&3 = 7 yr trib + 3 yr gap = Ps. 90.10
      G73 = Assembly met to see games
      73 = 365 / 5 (grace)
      153 = Great fish catch (John 21.11)
      153 = 1 Thes. 5.3 = 153
      153 = 73 (rapture) + 80 (return)
      153 = Isaiah 53 😊

      The rapture is the catching up to meet Jesus as he descends earth at the second coming

      When a royal visitor or important figure would come you would go out to meet them and escort them into the city

      Jesus is coming to the earth
      Believers will go up to meet him and descend to the earth with him

      The gospel is the gospel of the kingdom!

      Jesus the Messiah suffered and died, God raised him from the dead and exalted him to his right hand! Jesus is going to return and set up the kingdom of God ON THE EARTH! God’s government ON THE EARTH! Believers will rule the nations with Jesus!
      The Messiah died for his people! God resurrected the Messiah! The Messiah will resurrect his people at his coming! They will rule the nations!
      The destiny of the Messiah and his people is to be ON THE EARTH! The renewed restored earth! God also dwelling with them! Rev 21

      Matt 24
      14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

      Jesus said the Father is the only true God!

      John 17
      3 And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.

      Proof of a Pre Tribulation Rapture. Pay attention to the cloud and Clouds Jesus appears in and with. Act's chapter 1 verses 9 10 11 cloud. In RED Luke chapter 21 verses 27 and 28 Jesus is coming in a cloud. In Revelation chapter 1 verse 7 Jesus is coming with the Clouds. This is the second coming of Jesus.When he comes back to the MT of Olives. God bless you all.

      All religions harm humanity. Christianity is actually destroying American principles. When you place your hopes and dreams into a lie nothing good can ever come from it. Every human being must take responsiblity for fixing their own lives and for fixing our planet and world. When you believe a magic man is going to take care of it for you…that is not taking responsibility. That is living in denial and living in a delusion.

    • Allan JC

      Your defending the indefensible.
      There is not one verse of scripture to back up this view.

      Church Rapture. When?

      I was pretty astonished to learn this but its true and helped me a great deal and perhaps it might help you also.

      The Church Rapture event is only mentioned >>four<< times in the whole Bible and those 4 passages agree >>perfectly<< with one another and God >>never<< contradicts Himself.
      Here they are…

      Mathew 24 29-31
      Immediately >>after<< the distress of those days ‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’
      30 >>Then<< will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And >>then<< all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.
      31And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will >>gather his elect<< from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

      2 Thes 2 1-3
      Concerning the >>coming<< (singular) of our Lord Jesus Christ and >>our being gathered to Him<<, we ask you, brothers and sisters, 2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that >>the day of the Lord<< (singular) has already come. 3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for >>that day<< will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness a is revealed.

      1 Cor 15 51-52
      51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at >>the last trumpet<< For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, >>and we will be changed<<

      1 Thes 4 16-17
      16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 >>After that<< we who are still alive and are left will be >>caught up together with them in the clouds<< to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

      So to summarise, when is this rapture event?
      Mathew 24…
      After the Tribulation of those days.
      2 Thes 2…
      After Antichrist is revealed
      At the Day of the Lord
      1 Cor 15…
      At the Last Trumpet
      1 Thes 4…
      After the dead are raised
      At His Glorious return

      So do we believe what the Bible plainly has to say on this subject or do we believe a convoluted, complex and torturous 1830s doctrine that a single man called John Nelson Darby came up with?

      Even proponents like Macarthur admit this theory is based >>entirely<< on inference from beginning to end, that there is not a >single< explicit verse of scripture anywhere in the Bible to back it up! A theory that argues 180 degrees opposite to what the Bible so plainly states?

      Some even try to claim that this doctrine existed pre 1830 but that's just more ropey inference put together by scholars who >want< to see it there. As stated, Macarthur admits it only exists in the white spaces between the verses in the Bible, can you imagine what can be done with inference and obscure ancient documents by "scholars" who want to see it there?

      I cannot answer that question for you.
      I just know where I now stand on this subject.

      The renowned George Mueller (1805-1898) – regarding the pre-tribulation rapture teaching…
      “If you can show me a trumpet after the last [1 Corinthians 15:52] and a resurrection before the first [Revelation 20:4-5], then I can believe this >>new<< doctrine.”

      Mueller was not alone, other church greats like Tregelles, Benjamin Newton also stood staunchly against it when it arrived in on the scene in the 1830s.
