The Rapture


 

Taken Away



Matthew 24: 36-41 Who is it that gets taken away? But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only . But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the Ark, { notice they }

And knew not until the flood, came, and took them all away, { notice them } So shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left. {taken} Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left, { taken }

notation: as the days of Noah-{Noah was not taken-he entered the ark-the evil sinful people were taken; The flood came and took them all away, just as the fire will take them away at the coming of the Son of Man. {also refer to Luke 17:34-36}

The taken away is not the pre-tribulation rapture, but the destruction as in the Days of Noah -They were taken away,

Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Master himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of Yahuah: and the dead in Messiah shall rise first. {refer to Mat. 24:30 and 1cor.15:23} Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Messiah in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Master, Wherefore comfort one another with these words, {refer to 1Cor. 15:42-44; 15:51-52; Mark 8:38;1st John 3:2,3; St. John 14:3; 12:26;

1st. Cor 15:42-44; So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness: it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 51,52; Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immorality. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, {take note of the event, the dead are first} and we shall be changed.{ all of this happens at the last trump!} and the dead will be resurrected {1st}, and every one that is still alive, will then follow. {read it as it is written, do not twist the scriptures to suite your vanity. In MAT 13:30 Yahusha said, Gather ye together first the (sinners) tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but (rapture) gather the (saints) wheat into my (New Jerusalem) barn, which clearly states the sinners have been removed when the saints are gathered by the angels.


We should give serious thought to the Parable of the "10" Virgins

Matthew 25 1;
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Master, Master, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.

Compare this with the following
(Matthew 15:8-9)

In Matthew 7: 21-23, Yahusha refers to those people who claim to do His will but, yet, will not enter the kingdom of heaven. He states that He never knew them, even though they have done many wonderful things in His name. At the end of verse 23, He describes who they are.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Master, Master, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Master, Master, 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.

What is the scriptural definition of this word, “INIQUITY”??? Have you ever wondered what Yahusha meant when He used it???
Iniquity defined, using a “Strong’s Concordance”
In the Greek

92. adikema ad-eek'-ay-mah from 91; a wrong done:--evil doing, iniquity, matter of wrong.

93. adikia ad-ee-kee'-ah from 94; (legal) injustice (properly, the quality, by implication, the act); morally, wrongfulness (of character, life or act):--iniquity, unjust, unrighteousness, wrong.

458. anomia an-om-ee'-ah from 459; illegality, i.e. violation of law or (genitive case) wickedness:--iniquity, X transgress(-ion of) the law, unrighteousness.

3892. paranomia par-an-om-ee'-ah from the same as 3891; transgression: iniquity.

4189. poneria pon-ay-ree'-ah from 4190; depravity, i.e. (specially), malice; plural (concretely) plots, sins:--iniquity, wickedness.

Realize though, all the commandment keeping in the world does not save you. I'm in no way implying that we are saved by our law-keeping. "For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of Yahuah." (Eph 2:8). No one (except Yahusha) has ever truly kept the whole law without sinning at least once (Rom 3:23; 5:12). All it takes is one sin to be found guilty before Yahweh (James 2:10). It is through the shed blood of our Messiah and Saviour Yahusha that we are made whole. His blood covers our transgressions - it does not give us license to practice lawlessness (sin). Why is He called our Saviour? It is because He saves us from the penalty for our sins. The penalty for sin is death (Rom 6:23) and He died in our place - FOR OUR SINS. It is through Yahuah's grace (his unmerited favor/gift) that we are cleared of our guilt. His gift was His Son (John 3:16). We are justified through His blood.

YHWH's Royal Law {the 10 Commandments} is the only source that defines what SIN is.

The Parable is, Once the elect {Bride of Messiah} are gathered from the earth, there will no longer be a person alive on earth who has the spirit of Yahweh within them." Those that are left on the earth will INCLUDE those '' foolish virgins '' who will not make it as FIRSTFRUITS to Yahweh the Father AND to the Lamb of Yahuah !


Beware ~ even Satan has ministers appearing as ministers of righteousness, he appears as the angle of light and it does not matter what I send you, If you are caught up in his snare, and you will continue to follow it, if a person is deceived he does not know he is deceived, Unless you are called of Yahuah. 


Let us review a few Scriptures

Let us go to the famous rapture verse in 1st Thessalonians 4

4:16 For Yahusha himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of YHWH: and the dead in the Messiah shall rise first:


4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Master in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Master.

But let us read on the Chapt. 5 of 1st Thessalonians


5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.


5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of YHWH so cometh as a thief in the night.

The rapture is also referred to as the day of the Master...

Determine when the DAY OF THE MASTER will occur...

Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of YHWH come.

Isaiah 13:9 Behold, the day of YHWH cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

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

24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Thessalonians 4:16 For Yahusha himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of YHWH: and the dead in the Messiah shall rise first: Matthew 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Notice in Thessalonians 4:16 a shout, with the voice of the archangel,...

Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels...



Notice closely in

1st Thessalonians 4:16 and with the trump of YHWH:...


Matthew 24:31 with a great sound of a trumpet,...

and the dead in the Messiah shall rise first: 

1st Thessalonians 4:16 and the dead in the Messiah shall rise first:

Matthew 24:31 and they shall gather together his elect...


Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Master himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of Yahuah: and the dead in Messiah shall rise first. {refer to Mat. 24:30 and 1cor.15:23} Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Messiah in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Master, Wherefore comfort one another with these words, {refer to 1Cor. 15:42-44; 15:51-52; Mark 8:38;1st John 3:2,3; St. John 14:3; 12:26; 

1st. Cor 15:42-44; So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness: it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 51,52; Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immorality. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, {take note of the event, the dead are first} and we shall be changed.{ all of this happens at the last trump!} and the dead will be resurrected {1st}, and every one that is still alive, will then follow. {read it as it is written, do not twist the scriptures to suite your vanity. In MAT 13:30 Yahusha said, Gather ye together first the (sinners) tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but (rapture) gather the (saints) wheat into my (New Jerusalem) barn, which clearly states the sinners have been removed when the saints are gathered by the angels.

 

Matthew 24: 36-41 Who is it that gets taken away? But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only . But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the Ark, { notice they }

 

And knew not until the flood, came, and took them all away, { notice them } So shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left. {taken} Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left, { taken }

 

notation: as the days of Noah-{Noah was not taken-he entered the ark-the evil sinful people were taken; The flood came and took them all away, just as the fire will take them away at the coming of the Son of Man. {also refer to Luke 17:34-36}

 

The taken away is not the pre-tribulation rapture, but the destruction as in the Days of Noah -They were taken away,

The Parable is, Once the elect {Bride of Messiah} are gathered from the earth, there will no longer be a person alive on earth who has the spirit of Yahuah within them." Those that are left on the earth will INCLUDE those '' foolish virgins '' who will not make it as FIRSTFRUITS to Yahweh the Father AND to the Lamb of Yahuah !
