The Rapture Refuted

 

THE RAPTURE

 

Below are notes from a Judeo-Christian sermon on the rapture.

 

DEPARTURE AND DESTINATION

The Rapture is the catching away of God's people.

 

After Jesus was speaking with the Pharisees, he tells them he would gather them under his wing, and will see him no more until they say “Blessed is He”.

Luke 13

31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.

32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

33 Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!

35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Between Jesus resurrection/destruction of the Temple, and the 2nd Advent is now 2000yrs.

This is the “Church Age”.

Revelation Chapters 2 and 3  Defines the church ages.

Revelation 12:5-6

5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Daniel 9:26-27

26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

 

Jesus does not come all the way back to earth, but calls us upward into the air.

1 Thessalonians 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.

1 Corinthians 15 Details the resurrection

When that call comes, the dead will come out of the grave. Believers now dead, their bodies will be incorruptible.

   

Rapture comes before the tribulation. Then...

Beginning of Sorrows 3 ½  years + Jacob's Trouble last 3 ½ years =7 yrs.

Jesus was speaking of the Beginning of sorrows-the 1st 3 ½ years of the Tribulation

Mark 13:7-8

7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.

8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

Mark 13:14

14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.

24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

 

The last verse of Revelation 3 is about LAODICEA

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.  

Church needing gold tried in fire, the riches of Jesus Christ.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Church keeps Jesus out, absent of Jesus before the rapture.

 

Revelation 4:1   This is the Rapture.

1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

Isaiah 26:19  The dead shall rise.

19 Thy dead men  shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and (here is the resurrection) the earth shall cast out the dead.

Matthew 27:52-53   Fullfilled.

52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Isaiah 26:20   The upward call.

Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

John 14:1-3

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself(rapture); that where I am, there ye may be also.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-2  The rapture

2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

1 Thessalonians 1:10

10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

Wait for Jesus, he will deliver us from the coming wrath.

1 Thessalonians 5:9

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

 

THIS IS THE ORDER :Resurrection, Call to Heaven (Rapture), 7 years Tribulation on earth while God's people are with Him in  heaven.

Isaiah 26:19-21

19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

21 For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

 

THE TRIBULATION

The world after the rapture will be a Europe centered world. Revelation 17 Roman Empire Revived

A world driven by religion, economics, hateful of Christians, anti-semitic.  See Revelation chapters 12/13/17

Culminate in a world worshiping a man.

 

Revelation 4:1  A picture of the Tribulation

1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

Come hide in heaven until the tribulation is over.

The Beginning of Sorrows    1st  3 ½ years of tribulation.

Revelation 6:2 The man of sin is on a white horse. He comes when nations rise against nations, and he brings them a peace agreement. He rises up from the Gentile nations, Europe. The ten kings will give themselves over to him. Then the antichrist ratifies a covenant with many. And brings peace to Israel.

The antichrist himself is a part of judgment from God. God uses Israel's rulers and kings against them as judgment on them.

Rev 6:14  Earthquake. Every mountain and island is moved out of it's place.

         :15 Everyone is frightened, they flee to the mountains and hide.

         :16-17 They know about the lamb from the 2 Jewish witnesses and hid from Him. But they will know He is the Lord. This happens in the 1st 3 ½ years, Beginning of Sorrows.

The Bible tells us it's not by works of righteousness that we've done, we cannot save ourselves. Jesus will do it for us. All you have to do is believe and receive Him in your heart, then you are saved.

Rev 8:1  Heaven catches it's breath. Silence for a half an hour in heaven.

1st 6 seal judgments comes about as the result of the affairs of men.

         :10 Star falls from heaven. Wormwood, always has to do with the judgment of God for idolatry. It affects the fresh water of the earth. Bitter, poisonous.

Revelation chapters 9 (5th trumpet) and 12 (war in heaven will happen)

God will turn the Devil's wrath towards judging the earth. The Devil's man, the anti-christ, who guaranteed peace out of his European based nation, will enter the Temple in Jerusalem and declare to be God.

Revelation 11:2   2 Jewish witnesses brought by God to Jerusalem are announcing judgments of God in the first 3 ½ years, they die at the midpoint of the 7 years. But there are 144,000 Jews who hear the message of those 2 witnesses. They are protected by God and scattered across the earth, preaching the gospel. Many Gentiles are saved, many are martyrs in this last 3 ½ years and die for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 12:13,17

13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.  

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

These verses refer to the terrible persecution of the Jews in the world following the rapture.

God will raise up 2 witnesses (2 Jews) in Jerusalem who will witness to the people in the spirit of the Old Testament prophets.

144,000 Jew believers will flee to the 4 corners of earth and take the gospel with them. Many Gentiles will be saved.

 

Revelation 13:6-7  A world that hates Christians

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

Revelation 13:16-17

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  

Great gulf between the rich and the poor.

Revelation 6:6

6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Food of the wealthy. Oil and wine are food of the rich. Famine during the tribulation.

Rev 6:4 war and bloodshed  6:8 25% of world dies   6:12 earthquakes

8:7 storms   8:11 polluted fresh water (wormwood-bitter)    9:18 33% of remaining population dies   11:13 earthquakes   16:2,10-11 pestilence   16:3 pollution of ocean   16:4-5 plagues

16:9 global warming   16:18 great earthquake leveling mountains   16:21 hail stones

Revelation 19:10 Testimony of Jesus   22:20

1 Thessalonians 5:1-2,4,6

5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

Watch and be sober for the Rapture.

 

We are not appointed unto the wrath in the 7 Year Tribulation. Jesus will keep the church of Philadelphia from the Tribulation.

1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

 

Daniel 9:25-27 Prophecy of the coming of Christ

25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

Cut off after 69 sets of 7 years. And the prince to come(Is the Anti-Christ)

27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

This is the Roman Empire reviving (EU). EU takes place of Roman Empire- The anti-christ is of them. He (anti-christ) Dan 9:27 will confirm the covenant.

Halfway through the 7 year Tribulation, 3 ½ years, the Anti-christ will enter the temple in Jerusalem and declare himself to be god. But first confirm the covenant with many.

The “prince that shall come” will bring a peace agreement among nations, but will break it (in the middle of the 7YT).

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4,7

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Man of sin revealed

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Man of sin revealed

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he(Holy Spirit) who now letteth , until he(Holy Spirit) be taken out of the way.  Letteth- to hinder, hold back, restrain.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: After God's people are caught out, then the anti-christ will be revealed.

But the Holy Spirit continues to work in this world, but like in the Old Testament.

Not indwelling the bodies of believers.

 

The man of sin will not be revealed until after the rapture.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-9

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

 

Jacob's trouble- Last 3 ½ years of tribulation.

Antichrist declares to be God. His assistant is the false prophets. Chapter 12 is epic presentation of God's dealing with man. War in heaven. The Devil is cast to earth and releases his wrath.

Revelation 9:2 Satan opens the bottomless pit. The angels that followed the Devil were in there. Satan, the star who falls from heaven, is given the key by Jesus Christ to open the pit.

Locusts and scorpions are not literal creatures, they are demons and evil angels that torment men. Verse 5 says they cannot kill men though. Verse 11  Tells they have a king over them.

Four angels chained up by the river Euphrates by God. They are turned loose after the trumpet sounds. Verse 16 1000's of wicked angels. Verse 18  to kill.

Verse 20-21 Tell of men who are not killed by these angels.

Revelation 17  Religion tried to be unified. A world church. The antichrist is pictured as a beast with a woman on his back. The woman is that unity of false religion. That false religion the antichrist made to claim power, he destroys it with fire. Demands the world worship him.

Mark 13:24-25  The last 3 ½ years, Satan will be cast to earth.

24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

When the time of the Gentiles is complete, God will graft them back into the vine.

HISTORY:The Roman Empire was never conquered by a Gentile Empire. It just disintegrated. The Holy Roman Empire broke up into the modern nation states we have today in Europe. But is shaping up to be the empire of the anti-christ.

 

See Him face to face

Revelation 22:4

4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

1 Corinthians 13:12

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Rev 4/5 God's people celebrating in their new home, Heaven

 

Live pure and holy lives.

1 John 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

2 Peter 3:11-12

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

Special reward for Jesus appearing in your heart.

2 Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

 

DESTINATION

 

Rev chapters 4,5   A joyful event. The rapture has taken place. The dead and us transformed are caught up to Jesus Christ and taken into heaven.

4:8-11

All the saints of God, worshiping him around the throne. Glorious, happy, and joyfull.

The four and twenty elders-they are symbolic of a larger group.

I Chron 24 – The priests of Levi, descendants of Arron were divided into 24 groups, 24 courses, the father gave the name to that particular course of priesthood.

Represents the entire priesthood of Levi.

We like to talk about the priesthood of the believer.

Revelation 1 (v6) Jesus made us, you and me, kings and priests. Trusting in Jesus makes you a priest. You do not need to go through another man to approach God.

Hebrews commands us to come boldly to the throne of grace to find mercy and grace to help in times of need. The priesthood of the believer, we can simply pray, “Our Father....

In Revelation chapters 4,5   The 24 elders are rejoicing, and happy, and joyful.

In Revelation 4 -something happened, :4 “...on their heads crowns of gold.”

                                                              :10-11 they cast their crowns before the throne.

1 Corinthians 3:11-13

11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

The judgement seat of Christ

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

1 Corinthians 4:3-5

3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.

4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.

5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

Paul is talking about judging here on earth. Don't read others hearts. Be careful of judging ourselves.

Rev 4:5 The Lord will bring to light the hidden things. He will show the council of the heart. What goes on in the heart, the motivation.

The Judgement Seat of Christ

1 Cor 3 -Purpose of seat is wonderful- Designed to be a place of reward for faithfulness.

2 Cor 5

Jesus said, “If you just give a cup of water, this will not go unnoticed.”

Unsaved people will not be at the judgment seat.

1 Cor 5 -Paul says, “Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord” - It's possible to appear at the seat, those actions and motivations, just go up in the smoke and fire of God's judgement.

There are Christian people, who are saved, who live their lives for themselves. It is possible for a believer to appear with nothing to show for, by way of love, service or faithfulness.

Ask yourself- You are in front of God, and you say but Jesus, I did this, but he says, yes, but you did it for yourself, to look like you were doing good, but not for me.

Then the preacher tells a story of a man(unnamed) who was a martyr for Christ, who would not denounce him. At the judgment seat, he gets in, a reward.

Another example was a lady, who her whole life, always served people and talked about God to people, and when she got old, and couldn't do much anymore, she said kind words. At the judgment seat, Jesus says well done and gives her wonderful rewards.

We sense the rewards that he's given to us, the crowns on our heads, we kneel before him and take the crowns and say, “Not I Lord, thou art the one...”. Don't you want to have crowns to place before Him?

 

Now here we are in heaven.

Revelation chapters 21,22  Describe the beauties of the city of heaven. Buildings built out of elements like those in a jewelry store. John is told a city comes down from God.

When Jesus was speaking with the disciples, he was going to prepare a place for us.

He created the world in 6 days, he's been preparing a place for you for 2000years.

“In my Fathers house are many mansions”

You have a title deed to a piece of property in heaven, if you believe in Jesus Christ.

Jesus is coming back on a white horse.

The bride of the Lamb is the believers.

Revelation 2 -Someday in heaven, my doorbell will ring, Jesus will be there and have a basket of fruit, and say “ I brought you some fruit from the tree of life. Here, let me give you fruit.”

 

AND NOW...

 

THE RAPTURE REFUTED

“Church” doctrine vs. scripture.

 

“It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled” Mark Twain

In this study, the name of God (YHWH, pronounced Yahweh, and Yahshua (Christ) which means God saves will be used). YHWH is from the ancient paleo Hebrew, which did not have vowels.

 

The “churches” teach that The Rapture is the catching away of God's people.

Nowhere is the term catching away used in the Bible.

The purpose of this article is to expose the false teachings and doctrines that have become prevalent in today's Christianity.

 

One such false doctrine is, The Rapture.

 

 

 Emmanuel Lacunza, a Jesuit Catholic priest, who in the 1812 book The Coming of Messiah in Glory and Majesty, first taught this theory. John L. Bray, a southern baptist evangelist, stuck his neck out again when he made another $500 offer to anyone who could provide a documented statement earlier than Lacunza's 1812 writings. Apparently he had to cough up the 500 bucks. I quote him again: "I offered $500 to anyone who would give a documented statement earlier than Lacunza's time which taught a two-stage coming of Christ separated by a stated period of time." No one claimed that offer until someone found writings that forced Bray to write the following: "Now I have the Photostat copies of a book published in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1788 but written in 1742-1744 in England, which taught the pretribulation rapture before Lacunza."

   John Nelson Darby sparked the modern interest in  the Rapture theory in 1830 AD.

 

    Bullinger and Scofield were a big influence on following it up and spreading it.

 

The rapture doctrine originated with a Spanish Jesuit named Ribera around 1580 AD. He was the first to propose that Christ was going to come and secretly snatch away the church before a great seven year tribulation, where the 'Antichrist' would rule the world.

 

    Margaret McDonald, a Scotswoman in 1830's, published a vision she had in The Restoration of Apostles and Prophets In the Catholic Apostolic Church (1861). This is where the phrase “caught up... in the air” has been interpreted literally. Upon reading her publication, it is obvious she believes in a Judgment day and trial by fire.

 

The Rapture theory promotes the idea that “faithful Christians” will be spared the tribulations of the Judgment Day. To just wait around for the day they will be rescued from it, neutralizing us when we should be building the Kingdom.

Keep yourself open to the fact that, although most of our preachers are just repeating what they have been taught in error, to you, over generations and time, these false doctrines became canon. But if we study, the truths will be revealed.

Please continue to read on, then search your heart for truth, based on scripture, not what we have been told what scripture says.

 

Now to the sermons and doctrine that are preached today.

Below is the Judeo interpretation that was presented above. The highlighted comments are explanations, history, corrections, proper contexts, rebuttals, and the scriptural teaching.

Remember, this is the same sermon from above. We begin with the words of the Judeo preacher.

After Jesus was speaking with the Pharisees, he tells them he would gather them under his wing, and will see him no more until they say “Blessed is He”.

Luke 13

31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.

By this time most Pharisees were Edomite Jews by race. (see 'Pharisees' in Who's Who menu)

32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox (Herod, an Edomite Jew), Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

33 Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem (referring to 12 tribe Jacob/Israel), which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee (when people preach the truth, they are martyred, i.e. the prophets, Christ); how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!

35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. By not following God's(YHWH's) law, He does not dwell in your house, body (temple), community, land, etc.

 

Between Jesus resurrection/destruction of the Temple and the 2nd Advent is now 2000 yrs.

This is the “Church Age”.

Revelation Chapters 2 and 3 defines the church ages.

These 7 “churches” represent 7 different periods in the development of the Christian church.

These messages were not only directed, in fact, to those “churches” in those cities, but that each city named was representative of a stage in the total history of the Christian “Church” from the time of Prince Yahshua to His eventual return.

EPHESUS-means desirable

30-170AD -Approximate time period.  Resurrection through the apostle John's time.

Paul founded the ecclesia (assemblies) of Ephesus

Represents the earliest church (assemblies) when it was free from serious persecution.

Praised for loyalty to our Kinsmen Redeemer's teachings. False teachers were expelled.

This church age was criticized because “thou hast left thy first love.”  A little time passed since the resurrection, the Messiah did not return, and enthusiasm was lost.

SMYRNA- means myrrh, bitterness, suffering, period of martyrdom.

64-313AD  

Represents period of intense persecution of Christians by the Roman Empire.

Emperors and Popes, Catholicism begin to rise.

This church age was praised for standing fast through terrible persecution.

PERGAMOS- means marriage and elevation

Christianity being married to paganism via the Catholic church, expanded throughout Europe

313-606AD

Church age praised for holding faithful.

The Pope took over, as part of his title he called himself “the holy father”. In efforts to build up converts rapidly, the Catholic church adopted pagan holidays, rituals, and gods now under the title of saints. Jesus downgraded back to a baby.

Doctrine of Balaam (Baal-where we get the word (title) LORD) teaching the people of 12 tribe Israel to adopt pagan gods and intermarry.

Catholicism paganized Christianity.

THYATIRA- meaning a continual sacrifice (persecution at hands of papacy)

604-1529AD  The Dark Ages, Papal domination, lack of knowledge (most people were illiterate at this time and did not have access to the scriptures.)

Time of Reformation starts, John Wycliffe, mid 1300's, translates Bible into English. No, the KJV was not the first Bible, the be all and end all of the Word. There are over 26,000 mis-translations, mistakes, additions, misplaced verses, chapters, etc. Worthy of another study (see 'History of the Bible' in menu)

SARDIS -means bright light, remnant, reformation, those who overcome

1517-1789AD

Reformation gets rolling, time of Martin Luther. Known for his 95 thesis of church corruptions. Hey, that's kind of like this paper. Please, read on.

PHILADELPHIA – means brotherly love

1789-1914AD  Expansion of Protestantism in Christian (12 tribe Israel) nations.(Europe/USA)

LAODICEA – means people's rights, proud, boastful

1850-Present     Time predicted by Paul

Represents today's churches. “Thou art neither cold or hot...I will vomit thee out” Rev 3:14-22 They knew the gospel but did not practice it. Many false preachers, many false doctrines.

 

Revelation 12:5-6

5 And she brought forth a man child (Jesus,Yahshua Messiah), who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

6 And the woman (12 tribe Israel) fled into the wilderness (to the unsettled lands of Europe and America), where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (1260 yrs, protected from Edom and usury, feeding on Yahwey God's word, obeying His laws) This fleeing (migration) happened mainly in 745 BC- Assyrian captivity. But some 12 tribe Israel has been migrating through the Caucasus mountains since before their times in Egypt

Daniel 9:26-27

26 And after threescore and two weeks (434yrs from proclamation of Artaxerxes to rebuild Jerusalem in 458BC) shall Messiah be cut off (having reached the age of 30- Luke 3:23, Jesus was eligible to be a priest of 12 tribe Israel, in the midst of the week- 3 1/2 years-which is the middle of week 69, Jesus turned 30 and was Baptized by John, John, being the last Levitical priest, prepared the last sacrificial lamb- Christ, now the rest of week 69 which is 3 ½ yrs left,  was Christ's ministry ), but not for himself: and the people of the prince (notice lower case p, this prince refers to General Titus of the Roman army. Under Titus the Temple was demolished in 70 AD, the Edomites also gladly helped.) that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

27 And he (Messiah) shall confirm the covenant with many (his people, descendants of 12 tribe Israel, fellowship with His disciples in Bethany and Jerusalem during Holy week) for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease (the sacrificial blood rituals were done away with, NOT the law), and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

NOTE: The day on which Christ was anointed by Mary Magdalene was the day which began the final week-week 70. Holy Week. His sacrifice.

The 69 weeks are figured by 69 x 7=483 days. Week 70 is 7 days. Total is 490 days, which is Daniel's 70 week prophecy.

 

Jesus does not come all the way back to earth (nowhere in scripture does it say Jesus makes a fly by), but calls us upward into the air. The call is our transformation into our incorruptible bodies. Of course being approved by our works and obedience in this mortal life.

1 Thessalonians 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 (groups), to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. This refers to the already dead, and we who are living, to shed our mortality and put on immortality, being transformed into incorruptible bodies. The air is a reference to our atmosphere, the air, firmament, expanse.

The clouds in scripture represents the presence of Yahweh. It also represents a group, heavenly hosts, angels, the saints that have died.

Christ is coming here to rule, we with Him. Nowhere does it state that we are taken anywhere else. See Matt 13:24-30, 36-43. The wheat (12 tribe Israel) and the tares (children of the wicked one, the Devil) parable. The tares are burned and destroyed first, while we, the Bride (12 tribe Israel), shine forth in as the sun in our Father's Kingdom, here on earth. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

1 COR 15 Details the resurrection

    When that call comes, the dead will come out of the grave.

    Believers now dead, their bodies will be incorruptible.

1 Corinthians chapter 15 is talking about those already dead, as well as those alive who follow in Christ's ways will be translated into immortality when He comes. Those who died already in sin, not knowing Him, and those alive, who have fallen asleep and do not follow his laws are dead to Christ.  

Rapture comes before the tribulation. Then...

Beginning of Sorrows 3 ½ years + Jacob's Trouble last 3 ½ years  = 7 yrs. This is taken out of context from Daniel's prophecy.

Jesus was speaking of the Beginning of sorrows-the 1st 3 ½ years of the Tribulation

Jacob's troubles are the 12 tribes of Jacob/Israel, who since being disobedient to Yahweh, must deal with the results of not following His laws. They were going to be taken into Babylonian captivity, but Yahweh God will bring them through it. Even today, we, the descendants of the 12 are in trouble. We do not obey Him, and boy are those results bad now. Troublous times now. The phrase “Jacob's trouble” is used only once in the Bible.

Some say WWI was the start of Jacob's trouble.  Jer_30:7  Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

 

Mark 13:7-8

7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.

8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

We have wars and rumors of wars today, nation against nation today, earthquakes (also a metaphor of governments being shaken up), famines, (our food is genetically engineered these days), look at our welfare system. Sounds like the tribulation has begun, and been going on more than 7 years. The age of Laodicea (1850-Now) would fit the beginning of sorrows for His children.

Mark 13:14, 19,24-25

14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.

24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

Wherever there is no Christ, there is anti-christ, hence desolation.  Back then Christ was killed by the Edomites (Pharisees), Jerusalem in 70 AD destroyed, the fig tree Christ cursed in His last days is an allegory that 12 tribe Israel will no more come out of Jerusalem, they have all migrated North and West (Europe/America). And in 1948 the Edomite Jew usurped the land of Palestine, just like they usurped the throne during Herod's time, ordering the killing of newborns hoping to eliminate Christ.

The last verse of Rev 3 is about LAODICEA

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness (sin) do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.  

Church needing gold tried in fire, the riches of Jesus Christ.

We are the gold tried in the fire, when we come through the fire (tribulations) we either burn up because of our rejection of His ways and laws, or we that follow His example and laws will be refined and come through it. Remember how Abraham, and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, were tried in fire, and lived! They not only survived by believing, but because they followed Yahweh God's commandments.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

The Church keeps Jesus out, absent of Jesus before the rapture.

Many and most churches do have Christ outside. Allowing mixed race couples, homosexuals, and false doctrine into the congregation is the best Christ repellent.

Revelation 4:1   This is the Rapture.

1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. This is NOT the Rapture. No one is being taken here.  This is John's vision and experience. He is being shown Heaven (Righteousness), the throne, 4 beasts, which represent the leading tribes of Jacob/Israel. The Lion-Tribe of Judah. The Bullock-Tribe of Ephraim. The Face of a man- Tribe of Reuben. And a flying Eagle- Tribe of Dan.

24 elders are the 12 Apostles (Paul replaces Judas) and the 12 Tribes of Israel (Jacobs sons).

Isaiah 26:19 The dead shall rise.

19 Thy dead men  shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and (here is the resurrection) the earth shall cast out the dead. The resurrection of those who followed Christ, when He returns shall arise. Those who rejected Him shall perish.

Matthew 27:52-53   Is  Isaiah 26:19 Fullfilled. This is false. Totally different context.

52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. This was not a future event. When Christ gave up the Spirit on the cross, He went into the Netherworld to preach to and set free the captives. It was some of these that rose and appeared to many in Jerusalem. Roman records record over 600 accounts of this.

Isaiah 26:20  The upward call. Isaiah is talking about the coming Assyrian captivity.

Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. This is not the upward call, rather He is saying to separate ourselves from this evil world, do not partake in the unclean, in pagan worship, race mixing, or in anything that is not of Christ. You will be punished as a nation but you will come through it.

Exodus 12:22-23

22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house (chambers) until the morning.

23 For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

This is parallel to the meaning of the end times of the wheat and tare parable. The evil is destroyed first, while His children are protected by following His commands.

Also symbolic of the end time. We disobeyed, our punishment is our nose rubbed in the mess we made (tribulation), but if we do as we are told we are brought through it. No being taken away in a rapture to avoid our judgment.

 

John 14:1-3

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. The original Greek reads: In the house of my Father are many abodes. Other translations read: rooms, dwelling places, etc. If you are following and obeying Yahweh God, He can reside in you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself (rapture); that where I am, there ye may be also. Receive you unto myself”, again, in following His ways, He can receive you. Yahweh God will not dwell in you if you are against Him.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-2 The rapture

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

This is Not the Rapture. Paul is talking about an assembly of brethren gathering in communion to study scripture. Not being raptured. The original Greek reads: 1 Now we ask you, brethren, concerning the presence of our Prince Yahshua Christ and our gathering to Him, 2 that you are not to be quickly shaken from this purpose; and you should not be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as if by us; as though the day of the Prince is present. We are to gather in His name and commune with truth. With Him, we should fear nothing else.

1 Thessalonians 1:10

10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come. Wait for Jesus, he will deliver us from the coming wrath.

Original Greek: 10 and to await His Son from the heavens, whom He has raised from the dead: Yahshua, who is protecting us from the coming wrath.

By subscribing to the Rapture doctrine, and waiting for Christ to come, we take a back seat and support non-action on our part. We are to follow His laws and strive to be the example that Christ set when He walked the earth. And to not be tolerant of the unrighteous in our society, and assemblies.

1 Thessalonians 5:9

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Salvation is a misused word. Preservation is the true meaning. You can't be saved, and go on living and not follow His laws. But by following His laws, you can be preserved through Christ in this life, to have a chance to be justified when He returns.

Wrath is different than judgment. We will be judged. The enemy (Satan's seed- Edom) will get the wrath. Read the Book of Obadiah, it's only 21 verses.

 

THIS IS THE ORDER :Resurrection, Call to Heaven (Rapture), 7 years Tribulation while God's people are with Him in  heaven.

Isaiah 26:19-21 Resurrection

19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

21 For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

 Isaiah is preaching about the Assyrian captivity. Those that died that followed Yahweh God's laws will arise at the 2nd Advent. Hide, shut thy doors, is referring to acceptance of the coming captivity by the Assyrians. The 12 tribes of Israel, and Judah, were told by the prophets, that for their disobedience, they were going to be taken into captivity “for their own good”, and Yahweh God would protect (preserve) them there.

 

THE TRIBULATION

The world after the rapture will be a Europe centered world. REV 17 Roman Empire Revived

A world driven by religion, economics, hateful of Christians, anti-semitic.  REV 12/13/17

Culminate in a world worshiping a man.

The world is NOW driven by religion, economics, anti-Christian and anti-semitism.

Anti-semitic: semitic comes from the son of Noah, Shem, his descendants were Shemites, which included Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob whose name became Israel, who is the father of the 12 tribes of Israel. The Edomite Jews are descendants of Esau, as well as mixed with the descendants of Cain. All of which are NOT Shemites, or semitic, which means Anglo Saxon- so anti-semitism is hatred for white people. Don't fall for today's perverted meaning, that the Jews are semitic. They are NOT white. They are a mix of Cain, Esau, Khazar, Arab and mongol. Well documented, just search the word Ashkenazim on the web. It's even in the Jewish Encyclopedias. (see The Jews in Who's Who menu)

Adam comes from the ancient Hebrew word- Awdawm- meaning ruddy, comely, fair, able to blush, to show blood in the face. This only describes the Anglo-Saxon race. Yet, another worthy study.

Revelation 4:1  A picture of the Tribulation

1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. Come hide in heaven until the tribulation is over. As we established, this is talking about John and his vision, not rapturing people and hiding them.

 

The Beginning of Sorrows -   1st  3 ½ years of tribulation.

Revelation 6:2 The man of sin is on a white horse. He comes when nations rise against nations, and he brings them a peace agreement. He rises up from the Gentile nations, Europe. The ten kings will give themselves over to him. Then the antichrist ratifies a covenant with many. And brings peace to Israel. The white horse represents the time of Rome, and is symbolic of the Empire's expansion. The Ceasars/emperors are the rider. The bow, a long range weapon, conquering from a distance. If you believe that the man of sin (one man) is the antichrist, then hear what John says about him. 1 John 2:18,22 Little children, it is the last time (hour): and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time (hour).

22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

Seems to me we are surrounded by these “antichrists” already, more than one.

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

The “it” is the antichrists, and they are in the world already, whoever is not with Christ is against Christ, hence antichrist.

2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.  Many.

The antichrist himself is a part of judgment from God. God uses Israel's rulers and kings against them as judgment on them. If you realize the plural meaning of antichrist, then you can understand how because we allow and tolerate the ungodly in our society and communion, Yahweh does punish us with them. We deserve it.

Rev 6:14  Earthquake. Every mountain and island is moved out of it's place. This is not referring to literal mountains, but symbolizes governments and provinces. In this instance, Rome. The Germanic tribes (the so called barbarians) were taking over during the fall of Rome.

         :15 Everyone is frightened, they flee to the mountains and hide. Weren't  the mountains  moved?

         :16-17 They know about the lamb from the 2 Jewish witnesses and hid from Him. But they will know He is the Lord. This happens in the 1st 3 ½ years, Beginning of Sorrows.

Nowhere are the 2 witnesses referred to as Jews. The 2 houses of Israel and Judah are the witnesses. In the time of Solomon, Yahweh God divorced 12 tribe Israel because of their disobedience, the 12 tribes were divided into 2 houses, Israel (Dan, Reuben, Simeon, Gad, Ashur, Napthali, Zebulon, Issachar, Joseph, Levi) and Judah (Judah, Benjamin, and a portion of Levi) The circumcision was the House of Judah, they returned from Babylonian captivity  to Judea to bring forth the Messiah, who is from the line of Judah. Queen Elizabeth of England is the direct descendant of Christ, who is in the line of Judah, who is in the line of Jacob, Isaac, Abraham, back to Shem, Noah, Adam, and finally Yahweh. And the uncircumcision was the House of Israel because they dispersed and migrated after captivity, missing the time of the Exodus to Christ because they were settling Europe and eventually America.

Oh, and if you didn't notice, the Queen is an Anglo-Saxon, not an Edomite Jew.

The Bible tells us it's not by works of righteousness that we've done, we cannot save ourselves. Jesus will do it for us. All you have to do is believe and receive Him in your heart, then you are saved. This is all so far from what scripture teaches. How can one be rewarded for doing nothing? Here are some references: (Gal 2:16, 3:5, Titus 3:8, Rev 2:13,19, and James 2:14,18,22,24) that teach believing is not enough. If our Father gives us commands and we disobey, He will not reward us. Going to heaven is not a result of saying some magic words or clicking your heels three times.

 

Rev 8:1  Heaven catches it's breath. Silence for a half an hour in heaven. This refers to a short time of peace for the 12 tribes of Israel from persecution.

1st 6 seal judgments comes about as the result of the affairs of men.

         :10 Star falls from heaven. Wormwood, always has to do with the judgment of God for idolatry. It affects the fresh water of the earth. Bitter, poisonous. John is actually referring to the Hun invasion, Attila the Hun, who was paid an enormous tribute bribe to spare Rome in 432 AD. In 451, Roman and Visigoth forces (one of the Germanic tribes) against the Huns in one of histories terrific battles.

Also, the bitter water is symbolic of the perverted word of Yahweh, false doctrine. Verse 11 “cause they were made bitter”, made bitter by who?  Men.

Revelation chapters 9(5th trumpet) and 12(war in heaven will happen)

God will turn the Devil's wrath towards judging the earth. The Devil's man, the anti-christ, who guaranteed peace out of his European based nation, will enter the Temple in Jerusalem and declare to be God.

Rev 9 – Is referring to the First Woe - time of Mohammed (570-632AD).  In Hebrew and Greek, means destroyer.

The breakup of 1/3 of the Roman Empire was the Saracen (Arab) invasion.

Conversion to Mohammedism or death by sword.

Rev 12:7 War in Heaven. This is a flashback to an earlier time before Adam. The Devil was taken care of then by Michael, and Satan's minions will be dealt with again, forever, in the end.

Revelation 11:2   2 Jewish witnesses brought by God to Jerusalem are announcing judgments of God in the first 3 ½ years, they die at the midpoint of the 7 years. But there are 144,000 Jews who hear the message of those 2 witnesses. They are protected by God and scattered across the earth, preaching the gospel. Many Gentiles are saved, many are martyrs in this last 3 ½ years and die for the testimony of Jesus Christ. The 2 witnesses, who are not Jews, are referred to in verse 4 as the 2 olive trees. The houses of Israel and Judah. Old testament prophets and New testament apostles, all from the tribes of Jacob. They minister the true word of Yahweh which gives oil to the 2 lampstands (2 witnesses) so they may give light (truth) to the generations of Jacob/Israel.

Today's doctrine puts the first 3 ½ years of tribulation for the forty and two months as the time of these so called Jewish witnesses who die midway through the 7 years. But in Bible prophecy you take these 42 months and it equals 1260 years (7 months x 30 days = 1260) because 1 day equals 1 year. These 1260 years was the Reformation (about 500-1800AD)

People have been dying for the testimony of Christ for 2000yrs.

Revelation 12:13,17

13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. Satan and his children always following Yahweh God's children, infiltrating and corrupting their ways. The ways of His law. So when Christ returns, the Devil can say, “where are Your children? These are all mine, because they all follow me.”

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God (notice: remnant, only few keep His commandments), and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. (12 tribe Israel is her seed)

These verses refer to the terrible persecution of the Jews in the world following the rapture.

God will raise up 2 witnesses (2 Jews) in Jerusalem who will witness to the people in the spirit of the Old Testament prophets.

144,000 Jew believers will flee to the 4 corners of earth and take the gospel with them. Many Gentiles will be saved.

These verses refer to the terrible persecution of 12 tribe Israel, in the past, present, and future until the return of Prince Yahshua Christ. Yahweh God's 2 witnesses are the Houses of Israel and Judah. Not Jews. The 144,000 is the Administering staff of the Kingdom-obedient Israelites of each of the 12 tribes. The Jews never had nor spread the gospel. They pervert it. They deny Christ, and will NEVER accept Him, they are not His sheep. Christ came only for the lost (exiled, punished, divorced) sheep of House of Israel (12 tribe, Adamic, Anglo-Saxons, known as today's Europeans and Americans).

Jeremiah 50:6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.

Matthew 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Matthew 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

Lost - exiled, put away in punishment (divorced)   Greek: appolumi

He even referred to the Edomite Pharisees in John 8:44-47 as the Devil's children. Gog and Magog is the peoples of Magog. The Ashkenazim Jews, a mix of Edomite, Arab and Mongol. The Edomite Jew.  See Jewish Encyclopedias. Detailed files of their true identity all over the website. Just ask.

Revelation 13:6-7  A world that hates Christians

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

Referring to Holy Roman Empire, the wounded head of the beast that healed, the Papacy. Lasted 1260yrs. (Apprx  538-1798AD)

The Papacy perverted the scriptures and became the self-declared “substitute for God”

Revelation 13:16-17

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  Great gulf between the rich and the poor.

These verses refer to today, our government, Big Brother, the UN, the Jew controlled media, the Babylonian usury system that our ungodly commerce supports. The rich (corporations) get richer and the poor get poorer. We have already taken the mark. The State owns you with your birth certificate, your social security #, we've been branded by the Babylonian system.

Revelation 6:6

6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Food of the wealthy. Oil and wine are the food of the rich. Famine during the tribulation. The oil represents the Messiah, the wine represents the worship of the people, the quality of their worship.

 

Rev 6:4 war and bloodshed (civil war in Rome)  6:8 25% of world dies (not the world, but the known world, or society, from the plagues and diseases of the results of Seals 2 and 3)  6:12 earthquakes (fall of Roman Empire, sun-government and moon-bureaucracy)

8:7 storms (represents the Germanic “barbarian” tribes, who were of the 12 tribes centuries earlier dispersed from captivity)   8:11 polluted fresh water (wormwood-bitter)  (John referred to Attila the Hun as wormwood, Wormwood refers to the flowing water as the Word, the bitterness was the scribes perverting the word.)    9:18  33% of remaining population dies (refers to  the Second Woe- the Turkish invasion-1299-1917AD, Turks took over what Arabs conquered)  11:13 earthquakes (tenth of city fell, represents governmental subdivisions, provinces broke away)  16:2,10-11 pestilence (series of plagues on Catholic nations, Note:Catholicism is NOT Christian. Verse 10-11 Seat of the beast-the banks, usury)

16:3 pollution of ocean (the sea often represents peoples, British fleets destroy fleets of Latin (Catholic) nations, in the 1700's)  16:4-5 plagues (Because of bloodshed of persecution, Catholics being guilty were given their blood to drink)

16:9 global warming (God's judgment on the rebelled that repented not, the sun represents the Imperial power of Rome and it's unrighteous government)   16:18 great earthquake leveling mountains (shake up of the economic, religious, and political phases of the Empire)  16:21 hail stones (weight of talent-these refer to the bombs of WWII)

Revelation 19:10 Testimony of Jesus   22:20 (The testimony is to worship Yahweh God)

1 Thessalonians 5:1-2,4,6

5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

Watch and be sober for the Rapture.

Not sleeping, being dead to Christ, but actively following His laws. Not waiting around for a magical trip out of here, but actively seeking His face and obeying His Commandments. The law was NOT done away with, only the blood sacrifice rituals. Christ's death was the last sacrifice.

We are not appointed unto the wrath in the 7YT. Jesus will keep Philadelphia from the Tribulation.

Wrath is for the evil one's children. We will be judged.

The church age of Philadelphia has no living people today.

1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation (preservation) by our Lord Jesus Christ,

 

Daniel 9:25-27

25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment (Artaxerxes, of Persia, in 458BC) to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince (his death,sacrifice) shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks (490yrs): the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times (Books of Ezra/Nehemiah record these troublous times.) Prophecy of coming of Christ

26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off (Christ, age 30, was Baptized by John the Baptist, a Levitical Priest, and cleansed and ritually prepared for His mission), but not for himself: and the people of the prince (General Titus) that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

Cut off after 69 sets of 7 years. And the prince to come (Is the Anti-Christ)

Prince to come is Titus, not Christ or anti-christ. Daniel wrote 500yrs before these events, KJV correctly translates prince with a lower case p, referring to Titus.

27 And he (Christ) shall confirm the covenant (the New covenant, the law written on our hearts, and to love thy brethren) with many (disciples and kinsmen) for one (literal) week (Holy week): and in the midst of the week (middle of final seven year set, when He was baptized)   he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease (ritual blood sacrifices, not the law), and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

This is the Roman Empire reviving (EU). EU takes place of Roman Empire- The anti-christ is of them. He (anti-christ) Dan 9:27 will confirm the covenant. The Messiah will confirm the covenant, and the covenant is an added and new covenant with the Houses of Israel. The Old covenant made with Abraham's seed, which was the written law, and the New covenant with the same seed, Houses of Israel, Adamite Anglo-Saxons, which was the law written on our hearts.

Halfway through the 7 year Tribulation, 3 ½ years, the Anti-christ will enter the temple in Jerusalem and declare himself to be god. But first confirm the covenant with many.

The “prince that shall come” will bring a peace agreement among nations, but will break it (in the middle of the 7YT). Can you see yet how there is no 7 year tribulation, it's figures are taken out of context from Daniel to fit this false rapture doctrine. The prince that shall come, Titus, already came, in 70 AD, and where does it say anything about a peace agreement. As far as the anti-christ, there are many. Not just one. 1 John 2:18,22  Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. This includes everyone that denies Him.

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Anyone or thing that is not of Christ, is anti-christ. This false doctrine that is taught in the “churches” has everyone waiting for the anti-christ, all the while they are blind to all the anti-christs around them.

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4,7

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Man of sin revealed.

False doctrine accepted through the generations is the falling away.

When we fall away from Christ, we are deceived. When we remember who we are and whose we are, then the  evil is revealed.

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Man of sin revealed.

We are the Temple of Yahweh God, when we disobey Him, we exalt ourselves, as if we are our own God.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he(Holy Spirit) who now letteth , until he(Holy Spirit) be taken out of the way.  Old English word-Letteth- to hinder, hold back, restrain.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: After God's people are caught out, then the anti-christ will be revealed. The anti-christ is revealed when we know the difference between, of Christ, and NOT of Christ. Again, not just one person, but all who go against Him. Whoever breaks his laws is antichrist.

But the Holy Spirit continues to work in this world, but like in the spirit of the prophets of the Old Testament.

Not indwelling the bodies of believers. Where does it say this? And the Holy Spirit works in anyone who is walking in His ways.

 

The man of sin will not be revealed until after the rapture. We are not waiting for one man to be revealed, but when the deceived (the whole world) wakes up and sheds the perverted teachings of the Bible and His Word, then will there be an awakening. There is a reason WHY the Scriptures have been perverted. A big reason to search and study the ancient texts. The further back you go, the closer to the original. Ever wonder how talk or gossip always gets distorted when it goes through a few mouths until the facts are blurred?

2 Thessalonians 2:6-9

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity (it's a mystery if we don't know the truth) doth already work: only he (Christ) who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (Isaiah 66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. 2 Thes 2:11

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:)

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

When we reject Yahweh God and His laws, we are doing what is right in our eyes, delusional, and we love to have it so. If it is delusions we want, delusions we will have. Until we choose Him.

 

Jacobs trouble- Last 3 ½ years of tribulation.

Antichrist declares to be God. Anyone who is not with Christ is anti-christ.  His assistant is the false prophets. Chapter 12 is epic presentation of God's dealing with man. War in heaven. The Devil is cast to earth and releases his wrath. The Devil has already been confined to Earth, even before Adam.  Job 1:7, 2:2 tell about how Satan checks in (reports) with Our Father. Yahweh created Satan and his seed to Do Evil. To get us to follow our fleshly desires and neglect our Spirit, becoming a desolate temple (body) full of abominations. Antichrists. This mortal life is our test. If we Do  Yahweh God's commandments and obey Him, then evil is dead to us.

The False prophets are those teaching un-scriptural doctrine. Leading His sheep astray.

Proverbs 21:16  The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

Proverbs 14:12  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. You better make sure that what you believe in is scriptural and not just accepted doctrine.

Jeremiah 5:31  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

Jeremiah 12:10  Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. By adhering to false doctrine.

Isaiah 56:10  His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark;  sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Even well meaning pastors today have been conditioned in seminary schools for over 200 years now, to teach perverted doctrine that is keeping our people from knowing our Father. If we don't know Him, He doesn't recognize us. (Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.) This is the job of the Devil, to cast stumbling blocks. (Ezekiel 3:20  Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.) Don't stumble, search the scriptures and see the way.

Not just the way you have been trained.

Matthew 15:3,9  But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? (traditions of men)

9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Matthew 24:11  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. My how they have risen, practically deceived everyone.

Revelation 12:9

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

 

Revelation 9:2 Satan opens the bottomless pit. The angels that followed the Devil were in there. Satan, the star who falls from heaven, is given the key by Jesus Christ to open the pit.

This represents the times of Mohammed (early 600's AD), and a foreshadowing of the 2 Woes, the Saracen invasion (629-786AD), and Turkish invasion (1299-1917AD).

Locusts and scorpions are not literal creatures, they are demons and evil angels that torment men. Actually these represent the Arabs, verses 3-11 describe them. Example: crowns like gold-turbines, long hair, dark faces, white teeth, power to hurt- 5 months(5 x 30 = 150 years, aggressive spread of power) Verse 5 says they cannot kill men though. Unless they do not convert to Mohammedanism. Verse 11  Tells they have a king over them. Yes, Mohammed.

4 angels chained up by the river Euphrates by God. They are turned loose after the trumpet sounds. This is  4 kingdoms-Baghdad, Damascus, Allepo, and Itonium. John gave duration of 391 years (hour,day,month,and year) for the aggressive phase of the Turkish woe.  Verse 16 1000's of wicked angels. Arab horseman in armor (verse 9) Verse 18  to kill. Convert or die.

Verse 20-21 Tell of men who are not killed by these angels. This is the Catholics and pagans, which with the breakup of the Roman Empire, the Papacy remained and began gaining strength.

Revelation 17  Religion tried to be unified. A world church. The antichrist is pictured as a beast with a woman on his back. The woman is that unity of false religion. That false religion the antichrist made to claim power, he destroys it with fire. Demands the world worship him. Friends, the woman on the beast represents the whore, Israel (the 12 tribes, the cheating Bride of Christ). The seven heads are the Empires of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Alexander the Great. Rome, and Napoleon. All of which we drank of their sins. All of which throughout history, started by Adam-kind, began with order and Yahweh's laws, then the stumbling blocks (Satan's children) infiltrate, corrupt, and pervert the ways of our Father. We fall away, become deceived, follow false doctrine, tolerate sin, then the empire collapses. Look at America, heck, the world today.

Mark 13:24-25  The last 3 ½ years, Satan will be cast to earth.

24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. These verses are speaking of the fall of the Roman Empire (sun, moon-government, regions), the migration of 12 tribe Israel through the caucus mountains (Caucasian-named after Anglo-Saxons) into Europe and eventually America. The stars of heaven are the martyrs for Christ who were burned at the stake.

 

When the time of the Gentiles is complete, God will graft them back into the vine.

HISTORY:The Roman Empire was never conquered by a Gentile Empire. It just disintegrated. The Holy Roman Empire broke up into the modern nation states we have today in Europe. But is shaping up to be the empire of the anti-christ.

Luke 21:24

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles (nations), until the times of the Gentiles (nations) be fulfilled.

Gentiles is another hugely misused word. Most know it as non-Israelites, the heathen, the Devil's children. This can not be farther from the truth. This word is nowhere in the original languages of scripture. The Hebrew word “Goy” and the Greek word “ethnos means nation. The word Gentile is derived from the Latin word Gentilis, which means nation, race, or people. In the 4th century AD, gentile was loosely extended to cover more than it's original meaning, which was “one who is not a Roman citizen”.The perverters of scripture use and teach this word to mean everyone but the Jews. The ONLY meaning of this word means nation. Wherever you see it, think nation. In Gen 25:23 Yahweh God told Rebekah she had 2 nations (goyim) in her womb. He didn't say 2 Gentiles. This is yet worthy of another study (see 'Gentile' in Word Studies menu).

HISTORY: The Roman Empire went through the same stages of every civilization in history, and we are today too, the White Horse of conquering and prosperity, Red Horse of Civil War, Black Horse of depression, unjust scales of justice and commerce, hard times, inflation, and the Pale Horse, Death.

The 7 Germanic tribes (Vandals, Visigoths, etc) were the “barbarians” that helped in the disintegration of Rome, and finally the Saracen and Turkish invasions finished her off.  The modern nation states of Europe were founded by the dispersed 12 tribes of Israel. Long ago, even before captivity in Egypt, Assyria, and Babylon, small groups of the 12 tribes of Jacob/Israel made their way through the caucus mountains and settled Europe and America (the regathering place of the 12 tribes of Israel) For example: Simeon settled in Spain, Napthali in Italy, Dan in Denmark, Joseph's sons Epraim and Manasseh (USA/Britain). Yet another great worthy study.

Grafted in: Another perversion of scripture, let's briefly examine.

Only found 4 times in the Bible.

Romans 11:17   And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.

11:23-24

23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. Those tribes that left before the Exodus, the uncircumcised. Notice the last word, “again”. Not strange or of another family, but kin, and to return to the olive tree. Family tree.

24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? (Houses of Israel and Judah, 2 witnesses)

Paul clearly states that the Romans are a branch that was broken off from the main tree.  ("If some of the branches be broken off...")  Only a branch of the same race can be grafted back in.  Verses 17-19 clearly talk about the branches that were broken off.  (in Egypt before the Exodus, these were the Israelites that broke off and founded Rome.)

 

See Him face to face

Revelation 22:4

4 And they shall see his face; and his name (YHWH) shall be in their foreheads.

Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments (the law is NOT done away with, only the sacrificial rituals), that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

1 Corinthians 13:12

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. We will remember our name again, Israel, and who we are, and whose we are. Israel is NOT the Edomite Jews. And yet, probably a most important study (see Edom in Who's Who menu). For this is the deception that Yahweh God warns us about, that the whole world would be deceived of.

Rev chapters 4/5  God's people celebrating in their new home, Heaven

This is John's vision of Yahweh God's elect,  sons of Adam, which through Jacob are the 12 tribes of Jacob/Israel, which through the apostles came, all from the tribe of Benjamin. But not Judas, he was of that wicked one. Paul takes his place. The vision is of those who walked in Yahweh God's statutes. When the new heaven and earth replace the old, and Jerusalem comes down from heaven, it comes here to earth. All that offends will be destroyed. Our new home is here, and in our new immortal bodies, priests ruling with our Kinsmen redeemer.

 

Live pure and holy lives.

1 John 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. If we love our brethren, we cannot break any laws. Goes hand in hand.

2 Peter 3:11-12

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? The works of the world shall be discovered. Good works rewarded with life, evil works shall burn up, just like the tares.

Special reward for Jesus appearing in your heart. You have to follow His laws for Him to appear. His laws are written on our inward parts, this is the New covenant.

2 Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. Again, rewards only to those who obey Him. Not waiting around for a free ride and claiming the law is done away with.

 

DESTINATION

 

Rev chapters 4,5   A joyful event. The rapture has taken place. The dead and us transformed are caught up to Jesus Christ and taken into heaven.

4:8-11  4 Beasts (Cherubims), creations of God and they were living.

These 4 beasts are the leading tribes and represents the 24 elders, 12 tribes of Jacob, 12 apostles.

Cherubims are guardians of the tree of life. High ranking angels.

All the saints of God, worshiping him around the throne. Glorious, happy, and joyfull.

 

The four and twenty elders-they are symbolic of a larger group.

I Chron 24 – The priests of Levi, descendants of Aaron were divided into 24 groups, 24 courses, the father gave the name to that particular course of priesthood.

Represents the entire priesthood of Levi.

We like to talk about the priesthood of the believer.

Revelation 1 (v6) Jesus made us, you and me, kings and priests. Trusting in Jesus makes you a priest. You do not need to go through another man to approach God.

Hebrews commands us to come boldly to the throne of grace to find mercy and grace to help in times of need. The priesthood of the believer, we can simply pray, “Our Father....

Being born an Adamite-ruddy, able to blush, of the Shemitic line, through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel, through one of the 12 tribes. Of the family (Eloheim) of Yahweh God, born from above. Being born into this seedline, having this DNA, we are kings and priests under Christ, our brother. Priests are not made by just believing, it is hereditary. A chosen nation, a peculiar people.

In Revelation chapters 4,5   The 24 elders are rejoicing, and happy, and joyful.

In Revelation 4 -something happened, :4 “...on their heads crowns of gold.”

                                                              :10-11 they cast their crowns before the throne.

Those saints, who are kings and priests, in the lines of Jacob/Israel, are heirs in the Kingdom, we cast our crowns because only Prince Yahshua Christ is our King.

1 Corinthians 3:11-13

11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Nothing else can be built, unless it is built upon Christ.

12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

The judgment seat of Christ

We will be judged by our works, intentions, desires. Notice “shall be revealed by fire”. This is  tribulation, and not just seven years. We are in, and have been in tribulation. The life we live, in this world, is our trial by fire, no matter how bad it gets, look around, it's bad. In the end when our Kinsman Redeemer returns, the trial ends. If we followed His ways, and laws, we will come through this fire, shed of our mortality and translated into the incorruptible.

We are not being taken anywhere. The Bible teaches that we WILL be tried in the fire.

Luke 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's (Christ's) sake.

Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's (Yahweh's) sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved (preserved). Walk in His ways and be preserved.

2 Timothy 2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:

2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

The Great tribulation is the time when martyrs are made. Being persecuted for Christ, His laws, and what He stands for. The Great tribulation is when they bring economic catastrophe upon you. The Great tribulation is the rise of the Beast System that covers the earth.

The Tribulation is the result of our disobedience, and having to live with the consequences. Walk in His ways and be preserved through it.

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body (flesh), according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

1 Corinthians 4:3-5

3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self. Speaking to the dispersed tribes of Jacob/Israel in Corinth, Paul is saying that he does not care what they, or men think of him, he will teach Yahweh God's word regardless.

4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.

5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

Paul is talking about judging here on earth. Don't read others hearts. Be careful of judging ourselves.

We are to judge our brethren, and stand for righteousness. Not tolerate sin in our midst.

Ezekiel 18:8 He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man,

Ezekiel 20:4  Wilt thou judge them, son of man, wilt thou judge them? cause them to know the abominations of their fathers:

Leviticus 19:15 Y shall do not unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.

John 7:24  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

James 4:11  Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.

By NOT judging, we allow the sinners among us to remain. Righteousness and unrighteousness cannot co-exist. Come up out of her my people. Yes, judge and take action, don't stand for gays in the congregation, mixed couples, false doctrine, even false preachers. See 'Judging' in Word Studies menu.

 

The Judgement Seat of Christ

1 Cor 3 -Purpose of seat is wonderful- Designed to be a place of reward for faithfulness.

1 Cor 3 Is talking about labouring for Yahweh God. Paul is telling the people that they can't handle the strict truth of Yahweh God, even fed as babes it is a struggle. The flesh is always in conflict with the Spirit. But if you follow and build upon the foundation of Christ, then Yahweh God will dwell in you.

2 Cor 5

Jesus said, “If you just give a cup of water, this will not go unnoticed.”

Unsaved people will not be at the judgment seat.

No mention of a cup of water in this chapter. But every good deed should be heartfelt.

The saved and unsaved will be judged, judgment is judgment, and when He comes, everyone will be judged.

2 Cor 5 -Paul says, “Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord” - It's possible to appear at the seat, those actions and motivations, just go up in the smoke and fire of God's judgment.

There are Christian people, who are saved, who live their lives for themselves. It is possible for a believer to appear with nothing to show for, by way of love, service or faithfulness.

How could a “saved” person still be rewarded if they had nothing to show for?

Ask yourself- You are in front of God, and you say but Jesus, I did this, but he says, yes, but you did it for yourself, to look like you were doing good, but not for me.

Matthew 7:22-24

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

 

Then the preacher tells a story of a man (unnamed) who was a martyr for Christ, who would not denounce Him. At the judgment seat, he gets in, a reward.

Another example was a lady, who her whole life, always served people and talked about God to people, and when she got old, and couldn't do much anymore, she said kind words. At the judgment seat, Jesus says well done and gives her wonderful rewards.

We sense the rewards that he's given to us, the crowns on our heads, we kneel before him and take the crowns and say, “Not I Lord, thou art the one...”. Don't you want to have crowns to place before Him?

Now here we are in heaven.

Revelation chapters 21,22  Describe the beauties of the city of heaven. Buildings built out of elements like those in a jewelry store. John is told a city comes down from God. Yes, the New Jerusalem, a new heaven and a new earth. This is the Bride of Christ (12 tribe Jacob/Israel, both those dead and alive, translated into incorruptible bodies). Jerusalem represents His people, descendants of the Adamic (Anglo-Saxon) race.  With no more evil, and things that offend, all there is left is righteousness. So if you are Raptured, you missed the party. Because Thy Kingdom and Thy Will, will be done on Earth, as is in heaven, where there is not evil. The Devil's children and all they represent will be as though they never existed.  

When Jesus was speaking with the disciples, he was going to prepare a place for us.

He created the world in 6 days, he's been preparing a place for you for 2000 years.

The word days in Hebrew means eons. Not literal days. But 10's of 1000's of years. Yes, He could do it in 6 days, but the accounts in Genesis are the different eras of time in Earths history.  The Bible is about the generations (race, family) of Adam, Gen 5:1.

“In my Fathers house are many mansions”

You have a title deed to a piece of property in heaven, if you believe in Jesus Christ. And follow His Commandments.

Jesus is coming back on a white horse. Didn't this pastor say the antichrist rode the white horse, and now it's Jesus?

The white horse is the image and representation of Rome and it's Emperors, leaders were known for riding white horses throughout history. The bow meant conquering from afar.

The bride of the Lamb is the believers.

Descendants of the 12 tribes are the bride. Not anyone who simply “believes”.

Revelation 2 -Someday in heaven, my doorbell will ring, Jesus will be there and have a basket of fruit, and say “ I brought you some fruit from the tree of life. Here, let me give you fruit.”

Can't find any basket of fruit in Rev 2. This chapter is about the church stages (see description at beginning of article). Verse 7- The tree of life is not literal fruit, it is the DNA of Christ's blood, it is allegiance and obedience. Trees in the Bible are symbolic of peoples. Only those in this family line are eligible to receive the inheritance. And only by following the ways of this family. Just like a King and a Kingdom. Does the King's family line allow outsiders to partake in the inheritance?

 

IN CONCLUSION

 

We all will believe what we want. Here is a simplified summary of both teachings.

Church teaching:

Anyone who believes in Jesus Christ does not have to follow the law, which was done away with. We are all saved by grace. Just wait around for a fly by when He will take you away where you avoid tribulation and are hidden comfortably while the rest of humanity on earth goes through 7 terrible years of tribulation, and one man, the antichrist, says he is God. The Jews finally come around and accept Christ and preach the gospel to the world. Then you come back to reign with Christ for a 1000 yrs, then the evil comes back from out of the pit, and well, this makes absolutely no sense. So many holes in this false doctrine it puts swiss cheese to shame. When the churches take verses from here and there, along with pieces of Daniel's prophesy and other teachings out of context to fit the doctrines of men, this is heresy, blasphemy, and anti-scriptural. Sure, a rapture sounds great. Escape punishment. But the Bible teaches otherwise.

 

OR

 

Scriptural teaching:

This life is our mortal test to obey Yahweh God's commandments. Since we are not perfect, when we disobey, the results are what we have to live with. This would be tribulation. But when we follow His laws and walk in His example (Christ's 1st Advent was our example), we are not “saved”, but preserved for the final judgment (2nd Advent). Unrighteousness will be burned up and righteousness will come through the fire (judgment). Then we are translated to incorruptible bodies, eligible to re-marry Yahshua Christ, and reign with Him on earth forever.

 

Adam was formed incorruptible to rid the world of what Satan had done.

He fell, becoming mortal. Evil flourished.

Noah and his family were righteous and survived the flood which wiped out evil. He did not go anywhere. Matthew 24:37-42  But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they (sinners) were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, Entered into obedience. 39 And (the sinners)knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Genesis 7:23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark. The righteous who obeyed. Brought through this tribulation.

 

The parable of the wheat and the tares. There is good seed (YHWH God's children) and evil seed (Satan's children). The tares are bundled and burned first, the wheat remain.

In every teaching in scripture, the symbolism is the same. The evil is destroyed, the good (obedient) are preserved. Not “once saved, always saved”. You can be “saved” and then stray and fall away, and be blotted out. That's why His laws and commandments are still in effect.

The Passover, very symbolic of the 2nd Advent, Christ's return and judgment. Those that obeyed were protected by following His instructions and the angel of death passed over them in Egypt. They were not taken anywhere, but remained.

Follow and LIVE, stray and DIE.

 

Thank you for your interest, may you see the truth, and YHWH bless.
