One thing is for sure. For any human to ever gain knew knowledge they must first humble themselves, put down the ego and remind themselves that we are all ignorant to a certain extent.
Even in the times of the apostles and followers of Yeshua they were expecting our Savior to return, but even though they had been with Him during His earthly life they were no closer to knowing the actual time of His return than we are today.
There is a difference between being a wise and well educated student of history and being a Prophet. I do not claim to be any prophet, but I have had people suggest to me that I am. I just explain I have been studying the Bible since I was a young child and I have a lot of knowledge.
Many Christian’s believe in “the Rapture” as a singular event, but when you study throughout the Bible G_d did in fact “rapture” certain folks off the earth and they never died on earth. Notable persons are Enoch and Elijah. Even the ascension of Yeshua was a rapture. Anybody taken off this earth into the heavens is by definition a rapture.
Due to this misunderstanding by Christians they have concentrated all though on there being a singular event called The Rapture and this error along with many other errors in Christianity is going to cost some people their souls. Thankfully, that doesn’t has to be because I am here to set the record straight.
There are two camps in Christianity when it comes to The Rapture. There are the pre-trib and the post-trib camps and both are drowning in error because neither camp understands G_d word correctly due to all the false teachings they have inherited over the centuries.
If there is to be one “rapture” we would capitalize “Rapture”, but because there is not going to be one singular event known as “The Rapture” I am now going to only use lower case letters for the word, “rapture”.
There will be two raptures of believers. There will be the “thief in the night rapture of the Wise Virgin Bride and there will be the “2nd Coming” rapture of the former Foolish Virgins who got “left behind” during the rapture of the Bride.
The problem created by the compilers of the New Testament and it’s reader is that when they read the 24th chapter of Matthew they think it’s all one explanation of one singular event they call “The Rapture”. This is not so. The writings attributed to the apostle Matthew, like many other books were put together in the 4th century by a group known as the Nicaean Council. After collecting all known gospel accounts they began a long process of trying to compare writing styles to attribute certain gospel accounts with certain authors. Once that was done they had to try to bring some kind of chronological order to this account and that account. Certainly, it was easy to place the bookends of the birth and death of Yeshua, but everything inbetween those years was a bit trickier. Anyway, all that to say this–you truly have to be much more than an average student of the Bible to be able to figure out that Yeshua spoke of not one, but two raptures of believers. You also have to be able to read the New Testament with a Jewish mindset, not a Roman mindset.
The rapture of the Wise Virgin Bride (true church) has it’s mention in the parable of the 10 Virgins and the lamps. In this parable Yeshua is being very specific that there will be two different types of believers when He comes for His Bride and He defines one camp as the Wise Virgins and the other camp the Foolish Virgins. We know it is only the Wise Virgins that are taken as His Bride because their lamps have oil, and the Foolish Virgins are rejected and left behind because their lamps have no oil. We know G_d’s Word is a lamp unto our feet, likening the light of lamp to G_d’s Word, His instruction (Laws) for us. His Bride is chosen because she was keeping G_d’s Word, His Law. The Foolish Virgins had no oil so that means they were not Law-keepers, but they were in fact the “Workers of Iniquity” that G_d (Yeshua) said, “Go away from me. I never knew you.” As well, in the parable of the 10 Virgins and the lamps, the Foolish Virgins found their way to where the wedding was taking place and knocked at the door and when Yeshua opened the door seeing them with no oil He said to them, “I do not know you” and like Noah and the Ark the door was closed and locked and these foolish Lawless Christian Foolish Virgins are locked out in the outer darkness, rejected as His Bride and are left behind to suffer the horrors of the 7-year Tribulation.
During the 7-year Tribulation there will be Messianic Jewish Evangelists like myself from the different Tribes of Israel that will be teaching those Foolish Virgins that have been left behind how to keep the Law and how to be baptized correctly for the forgiveness of their sins in the ONLY NAME given under heaven to mankind by which WE MUST be saved, the name Yeshua. I do not participate in the Sacred Name Debate that misguided sellers of the Gospel like Lew White put forth because the sacred name arguments cease with the proof of the name Yeshua’s family carved into His ossuary on his family tomb found in Talpiot, a neighborhood of Jerusalem in 1980, that name being Yeshua, not Yahshua, Yahusha, not Yehoshua, not Yahushua, and certainly not Jesus. If you believe there is power in “the only name given by which we must be saved” through the forgiveness of sins in baptism then I and you must admit that the name He was known by while on earth is the name of heavenly power that must be used to be confident you have followed G_d’s instruction for salvation. Being baptized in variations of that name I think our G_d’s is big enough to account it to you for righteousness. Just as long as you don’t use the Satanic name of Jesus that is neither a translation or transliteration of the Aramaic Hebrew name of Yeshua.
Yeshua said, when giving His parable of the fig tree, “This generation will not pass away until all these things are fulfilled”.
