The FINAL prophetic CONDITION of His return ... IS UP TO YOU!!!
YOU want to be Raptured from the "GREAT TRIBULATION"? ... Then YOU MUST fulfill the "GREAT COMMISSION"
The "illegitimate" usage of the term "pre - mid or post" tribulation IS completely irrelevant and MUST CEASE as the FOCUS of "Christian DEBATE!!! Once Christians UNDERSTAND the "PURPOSE" of the Rapture, Believers will be liberated in their souls and able to "RE-FOCUS" their EFFORTS toward fulfilling the "final, relevant prophetic condition" that has "hinder" the rapture from occurring to DATE!
"SOMETHINGS" so MONUMENTAL WILL OCCUR to expedite this "separation of the "sheep from the goats". These catastrophic events will cause ALL men on earth to consider their own mortality. It is at this moment in human history, that the FINAL DECISION will be made by ALL, with eternal consequence, eternal living or torment followed by eternal torment.
Immediately following the "final decision" the sky, which has by this time will have already split apart, the earth which will have already reeled like a drunkard, causing every mountain and island to be "moved" from its' place a "brief silent time of reflection" will create a sense of awe in Heaven as the LAST soul "comes in" along with the evacuation of Believers (from harms way), occurs.
It is at this moment, that the SEVENTH SEAL will release the first of many diversified execution of His wrath upon the earth.
YOU want to be Raptured from the "GREAT TRIBULATION"? ... Then YOU MUST fulfill the "GREAT COMMISSION". Scripture clearly describes the introduction of countless Believers, who have were evacuated "out of the midst" of the "GREAT TRIBULATION", as those who are NEW and RECENT ARRIVALS in Heaven". "these are those" who have COME OUT OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION...", Revelation 7: 9, 13, 14.
The popular assumption of a seven year long tribulation was based on Daniel's final week of seven years that was rolled into an unfounded "idea", that the evacuation of the Believer would occur prior to this "Time of Jacob's Trouble". These two periods do NOT necessarily run concurrent, but likely overlap. The "MOMENT" that a broken treaty with Israel, described in biblical scripture as the "covenant of Hell and Death" occurs, a certain prophetic KEY will turn and the fundamental understanding of the precise timing of the rapture of Believers will soon afterward change from academic to reality.
Leading up to this "gentile brokered broken covenant" is the time in scripture referred to as the "woman's in travail", currently underway. We are witnessing the time of "Jacob's trouble" that will ONLY END when Christ returns!
The broken covenant will trigger the Seventh Seal of Revelation commencing the judgment of Jehovah upon a non-repentant humanity. There must be therefore a "separation" of the Believer from non-believers, "PRIOR" to the first "JOLT" of His wrath upon earth!
Salvation FROM the "Great Tribulation" is 100% contingent upon the absolute "completion" of the "Great Commission" by CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS!!! Until then, STOP ARGUING Eschatology!
Jesus was clear when instructing Believers that the Church WILL be living upon the earth during a portion of a 3.5 year long series of "unparalleled times of distress", that He identified as the "Great Tribulation". The so called "timing" of the Rapture is affected by ONE, completed prophetic event". How do you know, it may be that individual that YOU introduce to Our Lord and Savior, who is the last soul to "complete the Body" (during the church age) and subsequently "allow" the Church to be relieved from it's earthly responsibility and safely arrive in Heaven as His Bride!!!!
In His Own Words; "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the "whole world" (all of mankind) as a testimony to all the nations, and then, THEN, THEN the END WILL COME, "For at that time there will be great tribulation, unmatched from the beginning of the world .... But here is one word of comfort, that for the elect's sake these days shall be SHORTENED"! Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then, THEN, THEN the END WILL COME.", Matthew 24:14.Matthew 24:14 -21 / Acts 1:11.
Of all the prophetic requirements concerning the second coming of Messiah, Jesus said that the completion of the Great Commission assignment IS the FINAL prophetic condition of His return.
UNTIL the Church understands that EVERY SOUL IS REQUIRED to HEAR, and that it is EACH AND EVERY Christian is required to (proclaim) this Gospel of His Kingdom until all have heard, THERE WILL BE NO RAPTURE!!
This "EVACUATION" occurs DURING the SIXTH SEAL EVENTS and BEFORE the SEVENTH SEAL EVENTS. The "Rapture IS triggered by the "final conversion of the church age". This is clearly illustrated by Jesus exacting description of the identical wicked human condition of the heart of mankind that existed both in the days of Noah, and the days of Lot. There was not one more human on earth at that time who would repent and surrender their heat to the Lord. Jesus taught that the wicked condition of the human heart would exist at the time of His return.
This explains what is transpiring during the five to six month period of "silence" that is interestingly enough occurring both on earth and in Heaven, ALL of Heave is observing with much anticipation the final harvest of souls that takes place between the SIXTH and SEVENTH SEAL, just moments before His judgment falls upon the remaining inhabitants of earth.
There will soon come a day and hour, when the LAST SOUL will enter into His Kingdom. It is ON that very DAY and HOUR , a day and hour that only He Knows of, that the Church will be evacuated out of harms way", (Raptured) and forever transformed into His Bride!!! MARK THESE WORDS! The Church will remain here upon the earth, come "Hell of high water" UNTIL that LAST soul is DECIDED!!! - MARK THESE WORDS, GATHER YOUR STONES AND SAVE THEM!
The Blessed Hope is CERTAIN!!!
The rapture will occur before the judgment wrath of trumpets and vials as recorded in the book of Revelation. This is uncontested.
Understanding the purpose of the rapture is KEY to discerning the timing of the rapture.
The rapture is NOT the invention of “christians”, but rather the exacting Divine act to evacuate Believers before His angels begin the execution phase of His wrath upon rebellious and non-repentant inhabitants of earth.
The two historically described “conditions “of the human race that were identified by Jesus regarding His return are defined as identical to those human conditions that dominated the Cities of Sodom and Gomorrah AND the Days of Noah.
In BOTH instances, there was not ONE MORE soul who would repent, not ONE, thus there was no longer a reason for the Believer to remain among the reprobate humanities.
Remember, Jesus said “we are not of this world” and it was He who commanded us with the “Great Commission”. Our purpose of remaining on earth after the death and resurrection until His return is based on His command to complete the Great Commission.
We are nearing this moment in time, when that last soul will repent and turn to Him, and only the Father, who knows the hearts of ALL men, knows when that DAY and HOUR will occur.
It is THEN and only THEN will that trumpet sound to transform the Church into His Bride by changing us in the “twinkling of an eye”.
It was at the precise moment BEFORE judgment commenced in BOTH instances that His people were REMOVED OUT HARMS WAY ... "SO SHALL IT BE".
THE “RAPTURE” WILL MANIFEST WHEN THE "GREAT COMMISSION" IS FINISHED and the absolute "LAST SOUL" of this "PRESENT AGE", (Church age), repents and enters His Kingdom!
THEN and ONLY THEN a future "feast of trumpets" will signal the "EVENT" to "keep His from the HOUR of TRIAL!
The "non-repentant" will remain on earth to suffer His Wrath! Anyone who remains and suffers under the anti-Christ and the time of "GREAT TRIBULATION" will enter under the MOST horrific time in human history.
"Because you have KEPT MY COMMAND, (WHICH INCLUDEDS THE "GREAT COMMISION") to endure with patience, I will also KEEP YOU FROM the “HOUR of TESTING” that is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. I am coming soon. Hold fast to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.… Revelation 3:10-11 / 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10.
Bible teachers have traditionally taught that the "Great Tribulation" that Jesus speaks of in Matthew is a period of SEVEN years however, UNDERSTAND that this specific period of "GREAT" tribulation is a period consisting of 3.5 years. This is scriptural.
The “HOUR of TESTING” may be the FIRST "YEAR" of the final 3.5 years that Yeshua defined as the "GREAT TRIBULATION". Matthew 24:21.
Revelation 3:10 promises that the Congregations, (Church), is “taken out of the way”, "kept from" the "hour", (year) of trial, (TESTING), this "hour" is likely the FIRST HOUR, (year) of this FINAL 3.5years when the execution of the "wrath" of Jehovah will manifest on earth.
This IS 3.5 year period of anti-Christ IS the time of the (great tribulation). It is likely that this verse of scripture reveals that the Lord will "KEEP US", "DELIVER" us at the onset of the first hour of this 3.5-year time of Great Tribulation.
to UNDERSTAND the "TIMING" of RAPTURE, CONSIDER The "Divine Measure of TIME":
CONSIDER, the biblical reference to "ONE HOUR" in the book of Revelation 17:12 is
actually "ONE YEAR".
CONSIDER, biblical reference to about "ONE HALF HOUR" in Revelation 8: 1 is a period of about "SIX MONTHS".
NOTE: The Divine Measure of TIME:
One DAY represents Thousand Years.
One HOUR represents one year.
One Week represents Seven Years.
One HALF HOUR represents Six months.
Daniel 9:25 / Revelation 17:12 / Hosea 6:2 / 2 Peter 3:8 / Malachi 4:1.
Even the "Day" of the Lord is defined by events that will take place over a One Year period! (1000-year millennia).
A millennium (plural millennia or millenniums) is a period of time equal to 1000 years, also called kiloyears. It derives from the Latin mille, thousand, and annus, year.
"After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight". Hosea 6:2. 4BC - 2006AD - "TWO THOUSAND YEARS" we have NOW arrived to the "THIRD DAY"!
It is often, but not always, related to a particular dating system. IT IS THE ONSET of the THIRD DAY, (3000YEARS) SINCE THE RESURRECTION OF CHIRST!
The phrase "a time, times, and half a time" which appears twice in Daniel (Daniel 7:25, Daniel 12:7) and once more in Revelation (Revelation 12:14) is actually in biblical prophetic interpretation a total of 1260 days or 3½ years (Revelation 11:3; 12:6).
It is reasonable to conclude that the actual measurement of Divine increments of time concerning men on earth are intentionally DIFFERENT for purposes of interpreting Bible prophecy. Hours in prophetic terms are "defined" as "MONTHS" in the context of the scripture itself, a measurement of time that is differentiated from the 24-hour time cycle on earth.
In Biblical relative terms, "about a half of an hour" is approximately SIX MONTHS. -
In Revelation chapter 6-8, there is a "pause" of about six months, described, a "space of about one half hour", (ABOUT SIX MONTHS), when a series of earth shaking events leaves mankind in a state of self "reflection" and "reckoning" (soul searching), that will expedite a final harvest of souls and will be immediately followed by the immediate wrath & judgment of mankind. as Revelation 8 describes a period of silence for a space of about a half an hour (in heaven)".
As "one hour" in scripture, and a "half an hour" in another scripture of the same book define a specific length of prophetic time, it seems reasonable to conclude that the two increments of time are identifiable different than time from earth’s perspective. In this case I propose that “one hour” represents “one year” when the anti-Christ rises to power supported by 10 global leaders. One hour represents a single year out of the final 3.5-year period when the final world dictator, will rule the world with an iron fist.
"There was silence for a space of about a half an hour (in heaven)". The actual Hebrew word used here - hemiorion - and it does not occur elsewhere in the New Testament. It is correctly translated as "half an hour"; It is rather interesting that THE ONLY place in the entire bible that the Greek word is used is in this verse. And the "space of about one-half hour" is a period of ABOUT SIX MONTHS.
The Silence of "about 1/2 hour in Heaven is a response to all "watching" events of the final harvest of souls occurring on the earth during the shaking by the opened sixth seal. There will be a period of about six (6) months of intense harvest of souls during this period.
Psalm 90:10 "The days of our years are threescore years and ten; (70) and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, (80) yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
The Final Heptad scenario is likely, perhaps probable as the Word specifically allows for the "count", providing the additional, "if by reason of strength, fourscore" which would bring this generation to the year 2028. I do believe that this allowable variance in the final allotted 10 years as specified by Psalm 90:10 will be "contingent" on mankind "responds" to fulfilling the Great Commission during the upcoming events of Six Seal "shaking" that is soon coming.
During this time of shaking, as long as men continue to REPENT, the extended years, "by strength" will be justified in His sight and His continued "longsuffering" with mankind will persist. Once the finale soul repents, all that remains on earth will be left behind to face the Wrath of YHWH.
Yes, there is a final SEVEN-year period, "Daniel's missing week". I never claim to be pre mid or post "tribber", however I'm am indeed a pre-wrath rapture person.
SEVEN years is irrelevant with regards to the Rapture. The Great tribulation is a period of 3.5 years during which time ALL THINGS prophetic concerning the wrath of God upon the earth will be executed. DO NO stumble over the number seven.
7 IS relevant in the things of God and His creation.
The number SEVEN is IRRELEVANT with regards to the specific moment of the RAPTURE.
The number 7 is the number of years to complete Daniel's missing week.
The treaty of death and hell will fall apart after 3.5 years not seven.
Attempting to locate the rapture event in relationship to SEVEN is misguided. The rapture event occurs BEFORE the wrath of God is executed upon humanity.
We do not know whether all or part of the 3.5 year the Great Tribulation will manifest this wrath. His wrath may occur immediately at the onset or anytime during this 3.5-year period.
ONE THING FOR CERTAIN is that the Believer remains on earth for the original purpose as commissioned by Christ prior to His Ascension, to "fulfill" the Great Commission.
Once this commission is decommissioned, (completed), the Congregation, (Church) will be taken. (evacuated) from earth and the Bride of Yeshua will return with Him and His Kingdom to earth. I am convinced that the Sixth Seal of revelation will be the "catalyst" for this final harvest.
DO NOT FEAR THESE DAYS OF SORROWS! The Lord gave Nebuchadnezzar a dream that only Daniel could interpret. Daniel 2.
In the fiery furnace, King Nebuchadnezzar saw that YHWH of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego was faithful and that none of his “gods” could compare with YHWH, Who will rescue His people. Nebuchadnezzar saw that the Lord enter into a “blazing furnace” to be with those who trust in Him. So King Nebuchadnezzar made a law that no one could speak against the YHWH of Israel. Daniel 3.
At the end of that time I, Nebuchadnezzar, looked up toward heaven. My mind became clear again. - Daniel 4:34.
