The Rapture Doctrine
The rapture doctrine says that Christians will be taken off to the third Heaven
either just prior the 'Tribulation Period' or afterwards when YHVH (The
Creator) sends plagues on the Earth. The idea of a rapture is said to have originated
with a Spanish Catholic Jesuit priest named Ribera, in 1580 A.D. during
a time of much bloodshed in Europe as Roman catholics Persecuted and Murdered their
opponents (True Believers do not murder their oppressors
or enemies). This doctrine said that Christ was going to come and secretly
snatch away the Church before a great seven-year tribulation, when the "Anti-Messiah" would
rule the world. This futuristic interpretation of the book of Revelation, along with the future
coming of the Anti-Messiah,
was designed to take the pressure off the Roman catholic Pope, who was universally regarded as
being the anti-Messiah by His opponents (his
opponents were definitely on the right track).
Read "The Rapture
of the Wicked", by Stephen E. Jones or "The Rapture of the Saints", by
While Revelation does describe a great many future events, involving The Anti-Messiah,
it is still, nevertheless, true that the spirit of The Anti-Messiah, was already on
the scene as early as the latter part of the First Century, A.D.. Today,
a future anti-Messiah concept complete with a pre-tribulation rapture, has become a popular
view among all Christian churches too. The idea of going to a place of safety, whether on Earth
or in Heaven, is a concept held by many. BUT... Is it the truth?
I John 4:1-3
Beloved, don't believe every spirit (mindset),
but test the spirits, whether they are of YHVH, because many false prophets have gone out into
the world. By this you know the Spirit of YHVH: every spirit who confesses that
Yahshua has come in (into existence in) the
flesh is of YHVH, and every spirit who doesn't confess that Yahshua has
come in (into existence in) the
flesh is not of YHVH, and this is the spirit of the anti-Messiah, of whom you have heard that
it comes. Now it is in the world already (some
2000 years ago).
Note: Confess or
confesses, as used here, comes from the Greek "homologeo" (Strong's
G3670) which carries with it the implication of having a "Covenant
with YHVH". This word, homologeo," is made up of two other
words. "logos" (Strong's
3056) and "homou" (Strong's
3674). "Logos" means mental "Intent" OR "Plan," as
in the "Intent of the Heart" OR "Plan
of Salvation;" and "homou" means having or being
the same, as in being "Spiritually Identical" (Like
Minded). In other words, confess or confesses simply does not mean
to make a statement that Yahshua is the "Son of GOD." It means having and
maintaining through your love of YHVH a Spiritual Marriage Covenant with
YHVH. It means that when YHVH looks at you He sees a Spiritual Righteousness Seeking reflection
of Himself (like unto a mirror IMAGE). Everyone
who does not have just such a relationship with YHVH and His Messiah (to
mankind) is basically "Anti-Messiah" in their thoughts
1 John 4 Revealed: First let
us look at the logic of the first three verses of 1
John 4. If someone teaches or believes that the Messiah is God, a god,
part of the Trinity or an immortal prior to his physical birth, then somehow they must rule out
as impossible the only explanation that cannot possibly be wrong. It is totally impossible
for the belief that the Messiah was never anything more than flesh and blood to violate the principles
of the first three verses and therefore fit the definition of an Anti-Messiah. To say Messiah
Yahshua was purely flesh and blood can in no way be construed to say that he did not come "In
The Flesh". Every man or woman who was ever born "Flesh" came into
existence "In The Flesh", and none of us are GOD,
a god, part of the Trinity or immortal at birth. Additionally, the spirit
of the Anti-Messiah or the teaching or the belief that the Messiah did not come purely "in
the flesh" began before 95AD., and not with this Bnei HaMashalim Ministry
or any other ministry that does not teach the Trinity.
The Trinity is a pagan Babylonian belief and a Roman catholic Institution, and is not taught
by pristine Scripture.
On the other hand, the other two possibilities; (1) that Messiah Yahshua is
a god (GOD) or (2) a
demigod (God in the flesh) definitely
betrays these false beliefs as teachings of Satan (source
of Human Nature) and its pagan religious-government organizations. The
only mystery here is how anyone can believe such lies, but then again, it is human nature.
A Dual or Parallel Prophecy
It is well known to True Believers and others that the saints shall undergo much
tribulation and persecution, even right up to the time that they receive the Kingdom. (Daniel
7:8, 21-27) "I beheld, and the same horn (little
horn) made war with the saints, and prevailed against them .
. . . And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of
the Most High and think to change times and laws:
and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time (three
and one-half periods of time)" Daniel
7:21,25. Verses 26-27 speak of the time when the little horn's
kingdom (The Earth) shall
be taken away and given to the saints.
John 15:20-21 Remember the word that
I said unto you, The servant is NOT greater than his lord. If they have PERSECUTED ME, they
will ALSO PERSECUTE YOU; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all
these things THEY WILL DO unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent
1 Peter 1: 7 That the TRIAL OF YOUR
FAITH, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with
fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory AT THE APPEARING of Messiah
The Julian and Gregorian Calendars, Sunday as
the Sabbath, and MIDNIGHT as the changing of the DAY play down the importance
of YHVH's Commandments (Wedding Vows of Love),
etc... Of course, it was the Roman government and their Roman Universal church that caused
YHVH's Sacred Calendar, Seventh Day Sabbath, and dusk (as day change) to be abandoned.
"Blessed are the meek (True
Believers), for they shall inherit the Earth.
How Many Times Will The Saints Go To Heaven?
Christian Rapturists believe that they all go to the third Heaven when they die;
then at some future date Christ will come for his saints, taking them in a rapture from their Graves
or Everyday Life back to the third Heaven, and then later come back with His saints
to the Earth. Thus, they must illogically believe that many who have already
died and gone to the third Heaven (according to catholic
and protestant doctrines) will somehow be put back into the grave
and be re-raptured to immortality again so that the dead saints can go back to the third
Heaven and be with Messiah (again).
This is so ludicrous as to be laughable. But much of the confusion is due to the fact that the
Anglican-catholic King James Bible uses the singular word "Heaven" to represent three
distinctly different heavens.
I Thessalonians 4:16-17
16) For the Lord (Kurios Proxy) himself shall descend from heaven (sky
or low mountainn top clouds) with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,
and with the (Seventh) trump of
YHVH: and the dead in Messiah (Like Minded) shall
17) Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds (low
mountain top ?), to meet the Lord in the air (G109
; low dense atmosphere): and so shall we ever be with the Lord (YHVH's
Note: These verses say nothing
about Messiah Yahshua or anyone else taking the saints to the third Heaven. The saints (who
were asleep in their graves) are awakened and given immortality for
the first time, and then rise up (from their grave
onto their feet) to meet Yahshua (Who
will be establishing the kingdom of King David on the Earth) in the
First Heaven (Mountain top Clouds
or Atmosphere of Earth).
I Thessalonians 4:14
"For if we believe that Yahshua died (to
SELF) and rose again, even so them also which SLEEP (In
The Grave) in YHVH will Yahshua bring
Supposedly this verse teaches that before Messiah Yahshua returns, the righteous dead are taken
to Heaven and now they are returning from Heaven. No, this is not the correct meaning! Paul
knew that the dead are asleep (I Thessalonians 4:13-14),
and so did Yahshua (John 5:28).
The righteous dead remain "asleep" in their graves, until the coming of the Kurios (Magistrate
or Proxy) of YHVH! Then they join with HIM (YHVH's
Kurios or Proxy) in the CLOUDS (Mount
of Olives ?). Then, Once They (Yahshua,
Angels, and the Saints) have ALL gathered together in the CLOUDS (Matthew
24:30-31), they return back to the flat surface of the Earth with
The Messiah (Yahshua) to cast
out evil and establish YHVH's Kingdom on this Earth with Messiah
as "King of Kings.".
A "Rapture Of The Wicked?"
Well, sort of . . .
The Great and Terrible Day of the LORD immediately
follows The Tribulation Period (wrath
of Satan or human nature of mankind). Matthew
24:29, Revelation 6:9-12, 8:1.
It is not a day when we will all be snatched up into heaven. It will be a time when YHVH will
shake both the heavens and the Earth and He will separate the Tares and Chaff from The Wheat.
Both will be shaken until only wheat remains. See Isaiah
13:9-13, Hebrews 12:26-28, Amos
5:18, Matthew 13:24-30, 37-43.
I repeat, only the wheat remains,
because it is not the wheat that is removed or snatched
away, but the Tares and the Chaff.
In Matthew 13:47-50,
Yahshua gives another parable of the good and bad fish caught in a net. Verse 49: "So
shall it be At The End of The World: the angels shall come forth, and sever
the wicked from among
the just." Thus if there is
to be any rapture at all, it must be a "rapture of the wicked" to a Place of Desolation
and Spiritual Darkness.
In Matthew 24:36-42 there
is a section used by rapturists to twist the Scriptures to mean the opposite of its true intent.
Verses 40-41 are taken out of context to support the rapture, as being taken away to a place
of safety. However, verses 36-39 speak of the wicked people in Noah's day (An
Anthropomorphic Physical to Spiritual Parallel) who
continued "doing their own thing" and "knew not until the flood came, and took
them all away; so shall, also,
the coming of the Son of man (Messiah) be",
verse 39. Those who are to be "taken" in verses
40-41 do not appear to be raptured to a place of safety, but taken away to be slain.
As we have seen, "the righteous (wheat) shall
never be removed: but the wicked (chaff
or tares) shall not inhabit or inherit the
Earth," (Proverbs 10:30).
The wicked shall be gathered for punishment (Revelation
14:18-20). Yahshua's prayer was not that His servants would be taken
out of the world, but that they would be kept from the evil one (John
17:15, 20). No doubt the Savior wanted His followers to inherit the Kingdom
of YHVH on The Earth (The
Coming Paradise), Psalms
115:16. Solomon, also, knew this: "For The Upright Shall Dwell in
The Land, and the Perfect Shall Remain in it (Promised
Land), but the wicked shall be cut off from it (Promised
Land), and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it ("Promised
Land") . . . . Be not afraid of sudden fear neither of the
desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For YHVH shall be thy confidence, and shall keep
thy foot from being taken" (Proverbs 2:21-22, 3:25-26).
The chaff will be blown away, Psalms
The Marriage Feast Of The Lamb
Nearly all rapturists falsely teach that after the rapture the saints will attend
the "Marriage Feast of the Lamb" in the third heaven for
a few years while the Great Tribulation rages on the earth. The Marriage Feast, as described
in Revelation 19:7-9, must be
to what Matthew 26:29, Matthew
22:1-14, Luke 22:18,
and Luke 14:15-24 are referring.
In these passages The Church makes herself ready and partakes of a feast with the Eternal,
but no passage indicates that this marriage feast takes place in Heaven. This false understanding
is due to the false belief that people go to heaven when they die. Instead, The
Marriage Feast will take place when Messiah's Kingdom has been established on this Earth.
The Feast of Divorce?
As a result of the Eternal's war against the wicked, many are slain in the winepress
of His wrath. All manner of birds will be called together to Feast on the dead flesh of those
slain by the conquering Messiah. Truly, the wicked shall
be cut off from the earth to be slain and removed (snatched or "raptured" if
you will) from
among the Righteous.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed [are] they which are called unto
the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See [thou do it] not: I
am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony
of Yahshua: worship God: for the testimony of Yahshua is the spirit of prophecy.
11 ¶ And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called
Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes [were] as a flame of fire, and on his head [were] many crowns; and he had a name
written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name (Reputation) is
called the "Logos Theos" (Commanded LIGHT of
14 And the armies [which were] in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen,
white and clean (Righteousness).
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and
he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and
wrath of Almighty YHVH.
16 And he hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF
17 ¶ And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all
the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper
of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men,
and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all [men, both] free
and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to
make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him,
with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped
his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain (judged guilty and executed) with
the (double edged) sword (The
Heart's Intent) of him that sat upon the horse, which [sword] proceeded
out of his mouth (in Judgement):
and all the fowls were filled with their flesh (they
died an Eternal Death).
17 ¶ And, thou son of man (Messiah),
thus saith the LORD YHVH; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field,
Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice
for you, [even] a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and
18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of
rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice
which I have sacrificed for you.
20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with
all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
21 ¶ And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that
I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
22 So the house of Israel shall know that I [am] the LORD their GOD from that day and forward.
I Thessalonians 5:1-4 Says that the Day
of the Lord will come as a thief in the night. Will Messiah Yahshua return, rapture away all
of YHVH's true believers, with the rest of mankind unaware of what happened? Not at all . .
. There will be a lot of noise, and destruction when the Messiah returns. The whole Earth shall
see him returning. HE will come "unexpectedly,"as
a thief, in full view of all (not
secretly) Revelation 3:3, 16:15.
Joel 1:15 Alas
for the day! For the day of YHVH is at hand, And it will come as destruction from the Almighty.
Joel 2:1-2 Blow you the
trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm in my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land
tremble, For the day of YHVH comes, For it is close at hand: A day of darkness and gloominess,
A day of clouds and thick darkness. As the dawn spreading on the mountains,
A great and strong people; There has never been the like, Neither will there be any more after
them, Even to the years of many generations.
II Peter 3:10 But the
day of the Kurios of YHVH (YHVH's Proxy) will
come as a thief in the night (unexpectedly);
in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will be dissolved
with fervent heat, and the Earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
26 Wherefore if they shall say
unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers;
believe it not.
27 For as the lightning
cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son
of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase
is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
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:
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 (Messiah) coming
in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
The word rapture comes from the Latin "raptus" meaning
to snatch or seize. A similar Greek word is "harpazo",
meaning to seize, pluck up or take by force.
This Greek word is used in I Thessalonians 4:17, "caught
up together with them in the clouds." Does this refer
to going to the third Heaven where God's throne is? Not hardly !
II Corinthians 12:2, 4 and Revelation
12:5 do use "harpazo" to
refer to being caught up to
the sky (the clouds
of the first heaven),
but "Harpazo" does not
infer Heaven, just the act of being snatched.
At a moment when we are about to perish, the merciful Eternal
will snatch us up to meet with Him (and His Angels) In
The Clouds (first heaven), as He
is returning to defeat our enemies and rid The Earth of all the wicked.
Revelation 20:1-3 I saw
an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his
hand. He seized the dragon, the old serpent, which is the Devil and Satan (human
nature), and bound it (human
nature) for one thousand years (The
Sabbath Millennium), and cast it into the abyss (Tartarus
Hell), and shut it, and sealed it over him, that it (human
nature) should deceive the nations no more, until the
thousand years were finished. After this, it (human
nature) must be freed for a short time (100
Some Rapturists believe in a "two phases" approach to deciphering of
Messiah Yahshua's coming: first a "secret" rapture for the saints
to take them to Heaven for 3 1/2 or 7 years, while the Anti-Messiah deceives the nations and
tortures all who won't submit to him. This time they refer to as the "tribulation" and "Day
of the Lord." Then they say the "second phase" of the Messiah's coming will
occur. Yahshua will come visibly, in power and glory, with the saints, to conquer the Anti-Messiah.
However, the Bible time sequence of last day events does not allow for this interpretation. Matthew
24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 parallel the events described in Revelation
6 and 8:
Matthew 24:9-13, 21-22
Rev. 6:8-9, 16-19
It is very clear from the above that the "Tribulation" and "Day
of the Lord" represent two distinct periods of time, separated by
the heavenly signs. Matthew
24:29 shows that the heavenly signs happen
immediately after the Tribulation,
and Joel 2:31 says that the heavenly
signs occur before the Day of The
Lord. Pretty easy, huh?
Period is Satan's (human
nature's) wrath. He (natural
man) is angry because he knows his time is short, and he wants revenge
on the faithful believers who keep the Eternal's commandments (Revelation
"The Day of the Lord" is YHVH's wrath (Revelation
6:17) during which seven trumpets of punishment
are sounded, culminating in the seventh trumpet of seven last plagues, Revelation 8, 9, 15,
Notice that the Elect (Chosen
Few) are not gathered before the Tribulation,
but during the Day
of The Lord (Matthew 24:29-31). Specifically, the
righteous dead are resurrected at the seventh or Last
Trumpet (Revelation 11:15-18 / I Corinthians 15:50-52 / I Thessalonians
4:16-17). The prophetic time sequence laid out in Scripture allows no such
thing as a "pre-tribulation rapture." Even during the wrath of the "Great
And Terrible Day Of The Lord", the true servants of YHVH are not taken
to Heaven, but remain on Earth. Revelation 7:1-10 describes
144,000 servants of YHVH who are sealed in their foreheads (The
SHEMA), so they will be protected during the wrath of YHVH on the Earth.
Now, if YHVH's servants were already in Heaven, and immortal; why would
they need to be sealed for protection?
It is during the "Day of the Kurios" that the feet
of the Kurios (the Messiah) will
stand on the Mount of Olives (on
Earth); Zechariah 14:1, 4.
Ezekiel 9:4-10 (A Dual
or Parallel Prophecy)
YHVH said to him, Go through the midst of the city, through
the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark on the foreheads of the men that sigh and that
cry over all the abominations that are done in the midst of it. To the others he said in
my hearing, Go you through the city after him, and strike: don't let your eye spare, neither
have you pity; kill utterly the old man, the young man and the virgin, and little children
and women; but don't come near any man on whom is the mark: and begin at my sanctuary.
Then they began at the old men that were before the house.
He said to them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go you forth. They
went forth, and struck in the city. It happened, while they were smiting, and I was left,
that I fell on my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord YHVH! will you destroy all the residue
of Israel in your pouring out of your wrath on Jerusalem? Then said he to me, The iniquity
of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the
city full of wrestling of judgment: for they say, YHVH has forsaken the land, and YHVH doesn't
see. As for me also, my eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will bring their
way on their head.
Will the Christians be raptured off the face of the Earth? Absolutely, and they will be
accompanied by all other pagan tradition observing religious people, and those that do not honor
YHVH's Holy Sabbaths. There are certainly going to be a huge multitude of extremely shocked and
severely disappointed Christian rapturists when they discover that they are not being raptured
into heaven, but into darkness (Hades or the grave, and
ultimately Gehenna Hell (magma,
lava, destruction of the Earth's surface).
