THE RAPTURE/FACT CHECK PT 3

THE RAPTURE IS ONE THE LORD’S MOST PRECIOUS PROMISES TO THE CHURCH

 

2 Tim 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; In the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day; And not only to me, but also to all who have loved his appearing.

 

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 12 instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus,

 

FACT CHECK… CONCERNING THE ANITCHRIST HAVING WORLD DOMINATION.

AT MID TRIBULATION POINT HE WILL BE GIVEN WORLD DOMINON

Rev 13:5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. (3 ½ yrs) 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven. 7 It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.

 

Dan 12:11 From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.  (3 ½ yrs)

 

FACT CHECK CONCERNING A PRE-RAPTURE BEFORE THE 7 YEAR TRIBULATION OR JUDGMENT BEGINS TO TAKE PLACE.

 

2 Pet 2:4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 and if He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly lives thereafter; 7 and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men 8 (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds), 9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment,  (THE 7 YR TRIBULATION PERIOD)

 

2 Pet 3:3 Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”

5 For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, 6 through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. 7 But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 8 But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.

 

HOW CLOSE ARE WE TO THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH AND THE TRIBULATION PERIOD?

 

Rev 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John,

 

Rev 3:3 Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you.

 

OPPOSITE: IF WE ARE ALERT (AWAKE) WE WILL KNOW.

PAUL SAID THE RAPTURE WAS A MYSTERY (1 Cor 15:51)

THE CHURCH WAS A MYSTERY.

 

UNDERSTANDING THE TIMELINE AND TYPES HELPS US SEE AS WELL AS RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES.

 

Heb 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;

24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.

 

35 Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. 36 For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. 37 For yet in a very little while, He who is coming will come, and will not delay. But My righteous one shall live by faith; 38 And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.

 

ONE OF THE 2000 YEAR PICTURES OF THE CHURCH AGE

 

Hosea 6:1 Come, let us return to the Lord. For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us. 2 “He will revive us after two days; He will raise us up on the third day, That we may live before Him.

 

3 So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth.”

 

FACT CHECK.  JESUS DIED IN 2033 – 2000 YRS TAKES US TO 2033.  – 7 YR TRIB… BRINGS YOU TO 2026

IF THE CALENDAR IS OFF 4 YEARS, WE ARE  LOOKING AT 2022 INSTEAD OF 2026

 

Exodus 19:10-11 Consecrate the people 2 day’s on the 3rd day the lord will come down to Mount Sinai

 

Exodus 24:15 Then Moses went up to the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. 16 The glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days; and on the seventh day he called to Moses from the midst of the cloud.

 

Mark 9:1 And Jesus was saying to them, “Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.” 2 Six days later, Jesus *took with Him Peter and James and John, and *brought them up on a high mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them;

 

CLUES FOR THE TIMING OR WHAT TIME OF THE YEAR THE RAPTURE COULD OCCUR.

THE 7 FEASTS OF ISRAEL.

 

PASSOVER (UNLEAVEND BREAD & FIRST FRUITS) PENTICOST,

1 Cor 15:20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at his coming,

 

3 FEASTS IN THE FALL (3 IN 1) – THE FIRST ONE IS ACTUALLY THE BEGINNING OF THE JEWISH NEW YEAR AND IT IS IN SEPTEMBER AND IT’S CALLED THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS(ATONEMENT & TABERNACLES)…

 

THESE THREE TAKE PLACE IN THE FALL

ISRAEL OPERATES ON A LUNAR CALENDAR AND THIS BEGINS ON THE NEW MOON… THAT’S WHY TRADITION SAY’S, “THE NEW MOON HAD A NICKNAME CALLED, THE DAY NO MAN KNOWS.

 

1 Cor 15:52 “AT THE LAST TRUMPET”… DEAD RAISED & WE ARE CHANGED.

 

FEAST OF TRUMPETS… THIS IS A WAKE UP CALL… PREPARE FOR SOMETHING TO COME…

A CALL TO REPENTANCE, REFLECTION, HOLINESS & PURITY…

 

THE DAY OF ATONEMENT WAS ALSO THE DAY JUBILEE WAS CELEBRATED EVERY 50 YRS

THE BLOOD MOONS IN 2014 & 15 WERE HAPPENING ON SPECIFIC FEAST DAY’S… 4 IN A ROW…

THE LAST TIME THAT HAPPENED WAS 1967 JERUSALEM WON BACK.

1948 WHEN ISRAEL WAS MADE A NATION.

1492 EXPULSION OF THE JEWS FROM SPAIN

THE BIGGEST OF ALL SIGNS OR SIGNAL!

 

Luke 21:29 Then he told them a parable: “Behold the fig tree and all the trees; 30 As soon as they put forth leaves, you see it and know for yourselves that summer is now near. 31 So you also, when you see these things happening, recognize that the kingdom of god is near.

 

Hosea 9:10 I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your forefathers as the earliest fruit on the fig tree in its first season.

 

1948 ISRAEL BECAME A NATION.

ON DECEMBER 6TH 2017 OUR PRESIDENT DECLARED JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITOL OF ISRAEL.

IN 2018 THEY CELEBRATED 70 YRS AS A NATION.

32 Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place.

 

HOW LONG IS A GENERATION?

Psalm 90:10 As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years, or if due to strength, eighty years,

 

IF WE USE 1948 AS A STARTING POINT FOR THE GENERATION.  70 YEARS WOULD BRING US TO 2018….

IF WE USE 80 AS THE NUMBER FOR A GENERATION IT IS 2028

IF WE SUBTRACT 7 YRS FROM 2028 WE GET 2021
