PRE TRIB RAPTURE DOCTRINE :

PRE TRIB RAPTURE DOCTRINE :

 By Marc Roy
(((THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE, BE READY)))


THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH IS A CONTROVERSIAL SUBJECT, BUT I BELIEVE WE ARE TO TAKE A LITERAL VIEW OF SCRIPTURES, AND NOT A SYMBOLIC VIEW.

THE BOOK OF REVELATION IS THE ONLY BOOK OF THE BIBLE THAT PROMISES A SPECIAL BLESSING TO THEM WHO READ IT.
REV 1:3.
Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
((( GOD'S WARNING )))

REV 22:18 AND 19.
18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((( WHAT IS THE RAPTURE ? )))
THE OPPOSITION TO THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE ALWAYS LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT THE WORD RAPTURE IS NOT EVEN IN THE BIBLE. I'VE HEARD THAT SO MANY TIMES, THAT IT MAKES ME WONDER IF ANYBODY REALLY STUDIES ANYMORE, OR IF THEY JUST PARROT WHAT THEY'VE HEARD SOMEONE ELSE SAY.
THE ENGLISH WORD RAPTURE IS NOT IN THE BIBLE, AND ALTHOUGH THAT'S TRUE, NEITHER IS THE WORD BIBLE, OR TRINITY. THE LATIN TRANS;ATORS OF THE BIBLE USED THE WORD RAPTURO, THE ROOT OF THE ENGLISH WORD RAPTURE. IN OUR BIBLES, THE SAME GREEK WORD, HARPAZO IS TRANSLATED CAUGHT UP, WHICH MEANS TO BE SEIZE UPON WITH FORCE, OR TO SNATCH UP.
AT THE RAPTURE, THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST ( DEAD OR LIVING ) WILL BE CHANGED INTO A NEW GLORIFIED BODY, IMMORTAL BODIES, AND THEN WE ARE CAUGHT UP INTO THE AIR TO MEET THE LORD, AND SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD. AMEN.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1 THESS 4:16 AND 17.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17) Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1 COR 15:51 AND 52.

51) Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52) 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, and we shall be changed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((( THE RAPTURE IS FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST )))
THE RAPTURE IS EXCLUSIVELY FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST, THOSE WHO HAVE ACCEPTED THE LORD'S DEATH ON THE CROSS TO REDEEM THEM, WEATHER THEY ARE JEW OR GENTILES.
1 COR 12:13.
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE RAPTURE IS NOT FOR THE NATION OF ISRAEL AS A WHOLE, OR THE INHABITANTS WHO HAVE REJECTED JESUS AS THEIR SAVIOR ( MESSIAH ) THEY ARE NOT IN CHRIST.
MANY PEOPLE WILL TURN TO CHRIST DURING THE TRIBULATION PERIOD AND BECOME WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS TRIBULATION SAINTS, AND THESE SAINTS WILL BE BEHEADED FOR THEIR FAITH, AND THE REST OF THE UNSAVED PEOPLE DO NOT RECOGNIZE JESUS UNTIL HE COMES BACK TO THE EARTH TO SMITE THE NATIONS AT HIS SECOND COMING. ( REV 19,15 )
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((( WE MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR )))
WHEN JESUS COMES TO RAPTURE THEM THAT ARE IN CHRIST, HIS FEET WILL NOT TOUCH THE GROUND, FOR WE WILL MEET HIM IN THE AIR. THE RAPTURE IS CHARACTERIZED AS A TRANSLATION COMING, FOR THE DEAD IN CHRIST WILL RISE WITH RESURRECTED BODIES, AND WE WHO ARE ALIVE WILL BE CHANGED IN A MOMENT, IN A TWINKLING OF AN EYE, WHICH GENERAL ELECTRIC HAS MEASURED TO BE ELEVEN HUNDREDS OF A SECOND.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((( HAS ANYONE BEEN CAUGHT UP BEFORE ? )))
YES, GOD HAS REMOVED INDIVIDUALS FROM THE EARTH FOR HIS OWN PARTICULAR REASONS, AND HE HAS THE POWER TO CATCH UP THOSE HE CHOOSES AT THE APPOINTED TIME.
((( ENOCH )))
GENESIS 5:23 AND 24.
23) And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

24And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HEB 11:5.
By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
((( ELIJAH )))

2 KINGS 2:11.
And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((( THE TWO WITNESSES )))
REV 11:12.
And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((( JESUS )))
ACTS 1:9.
And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight..

JOHN 16:7.
Jesus was taken up to heaven to allow for the Holy Spirit to come indwell the believers at Pentecost.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((( WHERE IS THE RAPTURE MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE ? )))
IN REVELATION 4:1 JOHN IS TAKEN IN THE SPIRIT TO SEE THOSE THINGS WHICH MUST TAKE PLACE AFTER THIS, MEANING AFTER THE CHURCH AGE DESCRIBED IN CHAPTERS 2 AND 3 OF REVELATION.
REV 4:1 AND 2.
1) After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

2) And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
JOHN'S TRANSLATION TO THE THRONE IN HEAVEN PICTURES THE CHURCH AT THE END OF THE AGE. IT OCCURS PRIOR TO THE OPENING OF THE FIRST SEAL, AND THE APPEARANCE OF THE RIDER ON THE WHITE HORSE ( REV 6,1 ).

THE COME UP HERE COMMAND HEARD BY JOHN IS THE SAME COMMAND GIVEN TO THE TWO WITNESSES IN REVELATION 11,12 WHEN THEY WERE TRANSLATED BACK TO HEAVEN.
THERE ARE TOO MANY MISGUIDED CHRISTIANS WHO TRY TO RELATE THE LAST TRUMP OF 1 CORINTHIANS 15,52 WITH THE TRUMPET JUDGMENTS IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
IT IS A COMMON PROBLEM FOR POST TRIBBERS, BUT EASILY RECTIFIED IF YOU UNDERSTAND THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE JEWISH FEASTS.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
REVELATION 11:12.
And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((( ARE THERE TWO COMINGS OF CHRIST ? )))
YES, LET'S LOOK AT TWO OF THE WAYS THE WORD COMING IS USED IN REFERENCE TO CHRIST'S RETURN.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((( CHRIST'S SECOND COMING TO EARTH )))
COMING - #3952 PAROUSIA ( STRONG'S ) BEING NEAR, ADVENT ( OFTEN RETURN SPECIFIC OF CHRIST TO PUNISH JERUSALEM, OR FINALY THE WICKED ) PHYSICAL ASPECT - COMING PRESENCE.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MAT 24:27.
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.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2 THESS 2:8.
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AT CHRIST'S SECOND COMING, THE LORD APPEARS WITH HIS SAINTS, COMING FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH TO SET UP HIS MESSIANIC KINGDOM ( ZECHARIAH 14, 4 AND 5 AND MAT 24, 27 TO 31 ).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((( THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH )))
COMING - # 3952 PAROUSIA ( VINE'S ) - LITERAL, A PRESENCE WITH. WHEN USED OF THE RETURN OF CHRIST, AT THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH, IT SIGNIFIES, NOT MERELY HIS MOMENTARY COMING FOR HIS SAINTS, BUT HIS PRESENCE WITH THEM FROM THAT MOMENT UNTIL HIS REVELATION AND MANIFESTATION TO THE WORLD.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1 CORINTHIANS 15:23.
But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. (rapture).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1 THESSALONIANS 4:15 TO 17.
15) For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
16) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
17) Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2 THESSALONIANS 2:1 AND 2
1) Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE MOVEMENT OF THE BELIEVER AT THE RAPTURE IS FROM EARTH TO HEAVEN IN WHICH THE LORD COMES TO CALL HIS BRIDE UP TO HIS FATHER'S HOUSE ( JOHN 14,3 ).
1.The falling away
The Bible states that “the” falling away will come first. The phrase falling away may also be translated 'apostasy' or the 'falling away from God's truth'. In 2 Thessalonians 2:3 it specifically refers to the final apostasy (revolt), indicating that many will fall away from God's truth. If you look at the condition of the world we live in today, I'd say we're there now. When you look at Christianity today, you may just wonder, “Where is the Bible?” The decay of Biblical truths within the church is overwhelming.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2. The restrainer is removed
The Bible then states, “He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way”
2 Thessalonians 2:7-8 7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
The 'He' that Paul is referring to in these verses is not the person of the Holy Spirit. Translated from the Greek noun pneuma, 'He' is not gender specific - it is used in the neutered sense - being neither male nor female. The person of the Holy Spirit is the pronoun ekeinos - in the masculine.
Jesus in the flesh [his body], had to be taken to heaven to allow the Holy Spirit to come indwell the believers (John 16:7). In the same way, the church [his body] must be taken to heaven to remove the indwelling Holy Spirit from the earth. It will be like Pentecost in reverse.
The Greek word for taken (ginomai) means awakened, altered, to arise, be removed, be assembled, and be married to. It describes what happens to the church [the bride of Christ] not the Holy Spirit. When the bride of Christ is removed, things will go back to the way they were before Pentecost. The Holy Spirit will be here on earth so that He can lead people to Christ, but the Holy Spirit-filled Christians won't be here - just as it was prior to Pentecost. Right now, the body of Christ is restraining the man of sin, and we are not about to roll over and play dead. We know by looking at the Old Testament that the presence of the Holy Spirit on earth doesn't restrain sin. The body of Christ must be removed before the Antichrist can be revealed to the world.
3. Then, the lawless one is revealed
Now that the restrainer (the Body of Christ) has been taken out of the way, the man of sin (Antichrist) is able to make his grand entrance on a white horse. As Jesus opens the first seal in Revelation 6:1, the Antichrist goes out “conquering and to conquer.”
Revelation 6:1-2 1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Our Blessed Expectation
There are several passages that tell us that the faithful believer (those not in darkness) will not be caught by surprise. See Elijah Wasn't Surprised! We are expected to know the signs of the times. Jesus rebuked the Jewish leaders for not knowing the day of their visitation!
Luke 21:28 28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
1 Thessalonians 5:4 4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
Why is this all happening?
Daniel wanted to know what was meant by the prophecy in the book of Jeremiah, that said God "would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem" (Dan. 9:2). The angel Gabriel came to Daniel and told him what it meant.
Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks (of years) are determined for your people [Israel] and for your holy city [Jerusalem], to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy.
Gabriel told Daniel that seventy weeks would be determined upon your people, the people of Judah, and your holy city, Jerusalem. The seventy years is the time that God has specifically set aside for dealing with His people - the nation of Israel. Since one week signifies seven years in the Bible, seventy weeks is 490 years.
The prophecy in Daniel 9:24 states that at the end of 490 years, the transgression would be finished, sins would end, reconciliation for iniquity would be made forever, everlasting righteousness would be brought in, visions and prophecies would be sealed, and the most Holy - the Messiah, would come back to redeem the world. Gabriel also told Daniel when the Messiah would come to earth the first time.
Daniel 9:25 25Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks [years], and threescore and two weeks: [years]. (69 weeks of years)
The End of the 69th Week of Daniel
On April 6, A.D. 32, sixty-nine weeks or 483 years (this includes leap years) after Gabriel gave Daniel the meaning of the prophecy (Daniel 9:25) Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey, so the prophecy was fulfilled precisely. (Prophecy has ALWAYS been fulfilled precisely and will continue to be fulfilled precisely.)
John 1:11 11He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
Sixty-nine out of the prophesied seventy weeks ended that day when the nation of Israel rejected their Messiah. And because they rejected Him, God concealed the truth from them.
Luke 19:41-42 41And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
42Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
Romans 11:8 8(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
Psalm 69:23 23Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not;
When Israel rejected their Messiah, God's 'clock' stopped, marking the end of the sixty-ninth week. From that time through the present day, we have been in an unspecified period of time, uncertain when the seventieth week would begin.
What happens between the 69th and 70th weeks?
God offers the gift of salvation to the Gentiles to provoke Israel to jealousy.
Romans 11:11 11I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.
Romans 11:25 25For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
On the day of Pentecost the church was born, and God switched His attention from the age of Law [Israel], to the age of Grace [the Church]. But He is not finished with Israel!
Romans 10:1-4 1Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
2For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
3For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
Ephesians 1:9-10 9Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
10That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
The 'fullness of the times' is when Christ gathers together those who are in Him, both in heaven (dead) and on the earth (living) - the rapture of the church.
When does the 70th Week begin?
It begins when the Antichrist confirms the covenant (treaty) with Israel, and God starts His 'clock' up again.
Daniel 9:27 27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 years): and in the midst of the week (3 ½ years) he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease.
Confirm, literally translated means, he will 'enforce the covenant upon the many.' The question is when does he do that? Keep your eyes open for Israel to sign a 7-year peace treaty.
First, there will be much speculation as to the whereabouts of the ones who vanished (when the church is raptured). People will come up with all sorts of explanations for it; UFO's invaded the earth (look what's happening with the Raelian Movement) or, Mother Earth has purged herself of the intolerant religious fanatics who were hindering the movement to a peaceful 'One World' order. I believe that the Antichrist will use this unique opportunity to offer consolation and peace to the world. He will rise in power sufficient enough to enforce the covenant with Israel for seven years.
Matthew 24:33-34 33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
What happens during the 70th Week?
Beginning with the opening of the first seal in Revelation 6, and continuing through the opening of all seven seals, God exhorts the Jews, His chosen people, to repent. This 'week' is sometimes referred to as 'Jacob's trouble', which pertains to the descendents of Jacob/Israel (God renamed Jacob 'Israel' after He struggled with him, Gen. 32:28). This is a period of time for God to deal with Israel as a nation, and all who have rejected the Lord Jesus Christ. It is NOT a time for the Church to be purified through persecution, as many in the church like to think. The precious blood of Jesus has already fully purified His true bride.
Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. (A remnant will be saved - Jeremiah 13:8)
This 7-year period [known as The Tribulation] is actually two 3 ½ year periods. At the end of 3 ½ years, the Antichrist breaks the covenant with Israel, takes away the daily sacrifice, and places there the abomination of desolation, thereby ushering in the second 3-½ years - called the Great Tribulation.
Daniel 11:36 Then the king (Antichrist) shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.
Matthew 24:15-16, "Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains."
For those still on the earth when the first 3 ½ years (1260 days) have ended, you could literally count the days until Christ returns with His saints.
Revelation 13:5 He was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. (1260 days)
(Why then are there an additional 30 days mentioned in Daniel 12:11? And why does Daniel 12:12 say "Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days"? Although Daniel does not explain these varying durations, it does not alter the timing of Christ's return. The establishment of Christ's millennial kingdom requires time, and His Advent may be followed by several divine judgments (Matt. 25:31-46) and the regathering and judgment of Israel (Ezek. 20:34-38).
For the Gentiles, this will be a period in which they betray Jesus and go through torment and destruction to the end. Some assume that this is an all out attack by Satan, when in reality it is God who has granted him the authority to do so, just as He did with Job. As Jesus opens each seal of the scroll, another form of destruction is permitted to come upon the inhabitants of the earth. Power is also given to the angels to bring famine, disease, death, and to torture the unrepentant ungodly people. Although the Lord desires for more people to turn to Him for forgiveness, many continue to blaspheme Him. Only a few will survive the final 3 ½ years.
Revelation 13:7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.
The saints? Yes, don't forget, the Holy Spirit is still leading people to salvation during the 70th week. These saints are specifically called the "Tribulation Saints" because they have become believers during the tribulation period. The Bible says that these saints are beheaded for their testimony of Christ. They are NOT the church (the Bride of Christ) - the Church Age will have already ended and the Bride is already with her Jewish Bridegroom.
Colossians 3:6 Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience.
God will save His remnant out of Israel.
Zechariah 13:8-9 "and it shall come to pass in all the land," says the Lord, "that two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but one-third shall be left in it; I will bring the one-third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, 'This is My people'; and each one will say, 'The Lord is my God.'"
The church will not be present for the seventieth week, as it was not present during the first sixty-nine weeks [Remember the church wasn't born until Pentecost, which was after Israel rejected their Messiah].
Where is the church during the 70th Week?
We spend the 'week' in the marriage chamber, according to Jewish tradition. Our bridegroom is Jewish and has taken us to His Father's house for the weeklong marriage celebration
John 14:2 "In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."
Jewish customs are often used as illustrations in the Bible. It is not coincidence that in John 14:2, Jesus chooses the precise words that a Jewish bridegroom would use when addressing his future bride. He tells her he is going to prepare a place for her. Then he leaves to go back to his father's house to prepare the marriage chamber. When He returns for his bride she is supposed to be ready and waiting for him. He takes her back to his father's house where they enter the bridal chamber - the marriage is consummated - and the bridal week begins.
Isaiah 27:20 Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past. For behold, the LORD comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.
Based on Jewish tradition, the bride and groom remain in the bridal chamber for one week during the wedding celebration. This is more than just an interesting parallel; it is a direct foreshadowing of things that will happen. Jesus will come to take His bride to His Father's mansion, where we will enjoy a seven-year wedding “week”.
Ephesians 5:31-32 For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
At the end of the seven-year [tribulation], the bride of Christ is no longer referred to as the bride, but rather His wife! (Rev. 19:7).
After Christ and the church are married, we return to earth with Him (Rev 19:14). We will watch Him, as He alone, strikes the nations.
(I can't understand why Christians think Jesus would hurt His own "BRIDE"!) Can you imagine Jesus saying something like, "I will be back to marry you. But first I am going to beat the life out of you."
It's worth briefly mentioning, that Israel cannot be the bride of Christ. As the law was set forth in Leviticus, a High Priest cannot marry someone who is divorced or widowed. Jesus is OUR (the church's) High Priest.
Leviticus 21:13-14 And he [the high priest] shall take a wife in her virginity. A widow or a divorced woman or a defiled woman or a harlot - these he shall not marry.
We know that Israel is an adulterous wife, already married to the God the Father.
Isaiah 54:5 For your Maker is your husband.
Jeremiah 3:14 "Return, O backsliding children," says the Lord, "for I am married to you.
Jesus returns to earth!
Yes, and we come with Him for a thousand year 'honeymoon'. When Jesus returns to earth with His heavenly armies and His saints, He is coming to smite the nations, and to set up His millennial kingdom. It is at this time that rebellious Israel and all unbelievers will realize that He is the Messiah - The King of Kings.
Israel Will Mourn For Him
Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Sprit of grace and supplication; then they will look upon Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.
Every Eye Will See Him
Rev. 1:7 Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him [Israel]. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him.
Matthew. 24:30 "Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."
His Feet Will Touch The Ground
Zechariah 14:3-4 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, and He fights in the day of battle. And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two.
The Saints Come With Him
Zechariah 14:5 Thus the Lord my God will come, and all the saints with You.
Colossians 3:4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
The oldest prophecy in the Bible was by Enoch regarding Christ's return to earth. He said it was a time to execute judgment on all. For God to include the redeemed during His execution of judgment on the people of the world would mean that the blood Jesus shed on the cross wasn't sufficient to justify us. Once we have been made the righteousness of God, we cannot be judged for sin a second time.
Jude 14 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, "Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all."
Exhortation
A post tribulation perspective would lead us to store up food and survival equipment out of fear. How can our children grow in their love for the Lord when they believe that He will make them endure years of undeserved judgment and punishment? They would be subjected to seeing their friends, neighbors and relatives dying all around them.
1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
We would be teaching our precious little ones that God punishes His obedient and SAVED children. Fear is ALWAYS from Satan, and our children should never be living with it.
2 Timothy For God has not given us spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
When we take God's Word literally, we know that the true believer must be escorted to heaven before the 70th week of Daniel can begin. We don't fear the future when we understand and believe what God has said to us - and we can focus on spreading the truth. If you need help understanding, there is One you can ask.
John 14:26 The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
Don't let the devil steal the truth from you. Don't let him kill your hope. And don't let him destroy your faith. Jesus has come that you may have an abundant life!
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
I share this with you in the hope that it will renew your hope for the future and to remind you that God's promises are true and His words are everlasting. Everything that He said would happen WILL happen exactly at the appointed time. This note is not meant to be the final word. Only God's Word is final, so get in it and run to and fro!
But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the Book until the time of the end. [Then] many shall run to and fro and search anxiously [through the Book], and knowledge [of God's purposes as revealed by His prophets] shall be increased and become great. (Dan. 12:4.
EVERY MAN THAT HAS THIS HOPE IN HIM ( THE RAPTURE ), PURIFIES HIMSELF, EVEN AS HE IS PURE 1 JOHN 3:3. DO YOU HAVE THIS HOPE IN YOU ? IF SO, YOU ARE PURIFYING YOURSELF, AND LIVING A HOLY OBEDIENT LIFE AWAITING HIS SOON COMING.
LOOKING FOR THAT BLESSED HOPE, AND THE GLORIOUS APPEARING OF THE GREAT GOD AND OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. TITUS 2:13.
LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, YE BELIEVE IN GOD, BELIEVE ALSO IN ME, IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS, IF IT WERE NOT SO, I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU.

THE RAPTURE IS NOT SECRET, BUT IT COMES WITH THE DAY OF DARKNESS & SUDDEN DESTRUCTION !

THE RAPTURE IS NOT SECRET, BUT IT COMES WITH THE DAY OF DARKNESS & SUDDEN DESTRUCTION !

THE RAPTURE WILL NOT BE SECRET, IT WILL COME WITH DESTRUCTION ALL OVER THE WORLD, WARS, NATURAL DISASTERS,
HUGE DESTRUCTION, MANY WILL DIE AT THE RAPTURE AND RESURRECTION EVENTS, THE DARKNESS WILL COVER THE EARTH SPIRITUALLY AND PHYSICALLY FOR 3 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS AFTER THE RAPTURE AS THE TRANSITION FROM THE AGE OF GRACE OF GOD/ THE CHURCH AGE TO 7 YRS THE DAY OF THE LORD/ 7 YRS TRIBULATION, ALL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WILL KNOW SOMETHING BIG IS CHANGED IN THE EARTH WHETHER THEY KNOW ABOUT THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH OR NOT ! ! TO THOSE WHO REJECT PRE TRIB RAPTURE DOCTRINES USUALLY BABY CHRISTIANS AND LUKEWARM-BACKSLIDDEN CHRISTIANS OTHER THAN NON CHRISTIANS WHO DON'T READ THE WORD OF GOD WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT TEACHES THEM, THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT !

BIBLICAL EVIDENCES :

1 THES 5:1-7, KJV
1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then SUDDEN DESTRUCTION cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

ACTS 2:19-20, KJV
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: (( BIG NATURAL DISASTERS, AND WARS, MANY WILL BE KILLED, DURING AND RIGHT AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH AND WHEN THE CHURCH AGE IS CHANGED TO 7 YRS TRIBULATION-THE DAY OF THE LORD))
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

THE RAPTURE IS WHEN JESUS CHRIST IS COMING TO THE EARTH BUT REMAIN IN THE SKY/ IN THE CLOUDS TO CATCH UP / RAPTURE HIS BRIDE, ALTHOUGH HE WILL NOT STEP HIS OWN FEET ON EARTH LIKE AT SECOND COMING AT THE END OF 7 YRS TRIBULATION.
WHEN GOD/ JESUS CHRIST SEE DIRECTLY FACE TO FACE TO HUMAN BEING, OR DO SOMETHING BIG , ALWAYS IS ACCOMPANIED BY THE EARTHQUAKES ! SO THE RAPTURE EVENT WILL HAPPEN WITH THE BIG HUGE EARTHQUAKES AND DESTRUCTION ON EARTH , BIGGER THAN ANY HUMAN BEING CAN IMAGINE !

EARTHQUAKES HAPPENED WHEN GOD SAW THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AT MOUNT SINAI :
EXO 19:17-18, KJV
17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.


ISA 29:6, KJV
Thou shalt be VISITED OF THE LORD OF HOSTS with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

THE EARTHQUAKES HAPPENED AFTER JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS : SEE IN MATT 27 AND THE DESCRIPTION BELOW THIS ARTICLE

THE HUGE EARTHQUAKES WILL HAPPEN AT JESUS SECOND COMING AFTER 7 YRS THE DAY OF THE LORD-7 YRS TRIBULATION IS OVER !

NOTE : THESE VERSES ARE NOTHING TALKING ABOUT THE RAPTURE AS POST TRIBBERS CLAIM FOR, THAT'S THE FALSE DOCTRINE, THE CORRECT ONE IS ABOUT SECOND COMING, OTHER THAN I'M TELLING YOU THE BIBLICAL PROOFS THE RAPTURE WILL HAPPEN WITH THE BIG HUGE EARTHQUAKES, THE SECOND COMING AS WELL.

MATT 24:29-31, KJV

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 ((**THE BIG HUGE EARTHQUAKES AT SECOND COMING)) (*THIS IS TALKING ABOUT AFTER TRIBULATION FOR 7 YRS IS OVER, NOT BEFORE TRIBULATION)
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. (*THIS IS TALKING ABOUT THE SECOND COMING NOT ABOUT THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH, ALL PEOPLE ON EARTH WILL SEE JESUS IS COMING IN THE CLOUDS AT HIS SECOND COMING AND MOURNING BECAUSE OF IT, WHILE THE RAPTURE ONLY THE TRUE CHURCH/ THE BRIDE OF CHRIST WHO WILL SEE JESUS IN THE CLOUDS AND THEY ARE HAPPY WITH THE BLESSED HOPE AFTER THEIR EARTHLY BODIES CHANGE IN THE GLORIFIED BODIES AND MEET HIM IN THE CLOUDS, NOT MOURNING AS AT SECOND COMING ).
POST TRIBBERS TAKE THIS VERSE IS OUT OF THE CONTEXT FOR BELIEVING THE RAPTURE WILL HAPPEN AT THE END OF TRIBULATION FOR THIS VERSE, READ AGAIN MY EXPLANATION ABOVE, MATT 24:37-44, SO IN MATT 24 TALKS ABOUT MANY EVENTS, END TIMES SIGNS BEFORE 7 YRS TRIBULATION, THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH AND SECOND COMING)
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (* THE ELECTS ARE THE SAVED AND SURVIVED PEOPLE FOR BOTH JEWISH AND GENTILES/ CHRISTIANS, NOT THE TRUE CHURCH-BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS, THE CHURCH ARE ALREADY RAPTURED BEFORE THE TRIBULATION STARTS)

They shall gather together his elect - Elect. See the notes at Matthew 24:22. The word means Christians - the chosen of God. If this refers to the destruction of Jerusalem, it means, "God shall send forth his messengers - whatever he may choose to employ for that purpose: signs, wonders, human messengers, or the angels themselves - and gather Christians into a place of safety, so that they shall not be destroyed with the Jews." If it refers to the last judgment, as it doubtless in a primary or secondary sense does, then it means that he will send his angels to gather his chosen, his elect, together from all places, Matthew 13:39, Matthew 13:41-43.
From the four winds - That is, from the four quarters of the globe - east, west, north, and south. The Jews expressed those quarters by the winds blowing from them See Ezekiel 37:9. See also Isaiah 43:5-6. "From one end of heaven, etc." Mark says Mark 13:27, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. The expression denotes that they shall be gathered from all parts of the earth where they are scattered. The word "heaven" is used here to denote the "visible" heavens or the sky, meaning that through "the whole world" he would gather them. See Psalm 19:1-7; Deuteronomy 4:32.

The event in Matthew 24:29-31 is not the rapture for several reasons:

1. Christians will receive resurrected bodies at the rapture (1 Cor. 15:51-53). If we are in resurrected bodies like Jesus, we will be able to ascend just like Jesus did when He ascended (Acts 1:9). Why would we need angels to gather us when our bodies will have the same capabilities as angels (Matt. 22:30)? The angels are gathering the elect-those who have been saved AT THE END OF 7 YRS TRIBULATION who are in their natural bodies.

2. The angels also gather the wicked at this time (Matt. 13:38-43, 49-50).

3. If you make the argument that the angels gathering the elect in Matt. 24 is the rapture, then you will have to claim the angels gathering the wicked in Matt. 13 is also the rapture. Of course, no one believes the wicked are raptured at the second coming.

4. The angels are sent forth to gather both the righteous and the wicked together for the judgment of the nations (Matt. 25:31-48). These are all people in their natural bodies, not resurrected bodies. The wicked will be cast into the lake of fire, while the righteous will enter into the millennial kingdom.

BIBLICAL PROOFS THE DAY OF THE LORD/ 7 YRS TRIBULATION WILL START WHEN THE EARTH IS COVERED BY DARKNESS/ NO SUNLIGHT-> THE SUN BECOME DARK , ALL THESE EVENTS : THE DAY OF THE LORD/ 7 YRS TRIBULATION WILL START AND THE FIRST RESURRECTION AND THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH WILL HAPPEN AT THE SAME TIME !

Isa 5:25-30, KJV
25 Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:
27 None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:
28 Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:
29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.
30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

Joel 2:10-11, KJV
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11 And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

Acts 2:19-20, KJV

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

Amos 5:18-20, KJV
18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.
19 As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
20 Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

Amos 8:9-11, KJV
9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day: (The tribulation will occur when the day time suddenly become dark like night time, if those areas are day time, if the other part of the world, at night it will be the same), perhaps the world will be darken for several days after the rapture occurs and tribulation starts)
10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.
11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:
12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it. (The Bible/ God's word is hard to find then).

Zeph 1:14-18, KJV
14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: THE MIGHTY MAN SHALL CRY THERE BITTERLY.
15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, A DAY OF DARKNESS AND GLOOMINESS, A DAY OF CLOUDS AND THICK DARKNESS,
16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

Isa 13: 6-11, KJV
6 Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:
8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
9 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
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.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

Joel 3:14-15, KJV
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
15 THE SUN AND THE MOON SHALL BE DARKENED, AND THE STARS SHALL WITHDRAW THEIR SHINING.

The people will know when the tribulation will be, NO LIGHT FROM THE MOON, THE SUN AND THE STARS.

There is the doctrine circle around on the internet and youtube, they say there will be the 3 days of darkness BEFORE the rapture and the raptured saints will preach for the left behind for the short time and come back to heaven.
DO NOT BELIEVE WITH THIS FALSE DOCTRINE THAT'S NOT WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE WHICH IS PEOPLE ADDING IT, THE BIBLE NEVER SAYS ABOUT 3 DAYS OF DARKNESS SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE THE RAPTURE AND THE RAPTURED SAINTS HELP AND TELL LEFT BEHIND PEOPLE, I'M WARNING YOU SATAN MAKES THESE THINGS OF THE CONFUSION AND CAUSE MANY CHRISTIANS AFRAID OF 3 DAYS OF DARKNESS AND NOT FOCUS ON JESUS CHRIST OR THE RAPTURE INSTEAD OF 3 DAYS OF DARKNESS !
THERE IS THE THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS WHEN THE FIRST RESURRECTION/ THE DEAD IN CHRIST IS RESURRECTED RIGHT BEFORE THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH AND ALL THOSE EVENTS HAPPEN ON THE SAME DAY !

The Bible tells the dead in Christ will be resurrected in the twinkling of an eye ! This is NOT just about the rapture event !!
1 Cor 15:50-53, KJV
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep (**THE DEAD IN CHRIST), but we shall all be changed, (**THEY WILL RISE FROM THEIR DEAD ALTHOUGH THEIR SPIRIT IN HEAVEN BUT WILL BE CHANGED INTO THE GLORIFIED/ RESURRECTED BODY, THIS IS NOT ABOUT SLEEPING SOULS FALSE DOCTRINE)
52 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, and we shall be changed. (**THE RAPTURED SAINTS)
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

WHEN THE RAPTURE OCCUR ? IT IS AFTER THE DEAD IN CHRIST IS RISEN OR ALMOST AT THE SAME TIME, BECAUSE BOTH THE RESURRECTION AND THE RAPTURE WILL HAPPEN ONLY IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE OR WITHIN A VERY SHORT TIME !!

1 Thes 4:13-18, KJV
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep (**THE DEAD IN CHRIST), that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. (**THE DEAD IN CHRIST WILL BE RESURRECTED)
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain (**THE RAPTURE SAINTS/ THE BRIDE OF CHRIST) unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.(**THE RAPTURE SAINTS/ THE BRIDE OF CHRIST IS RAPTURED AND MEET WITH LORD JESUS IN THE CLOUDS, JESUS WILL NOT COME DOWN OR STEP HIS OWN FEET ON THE EARTH BUT REMAIN IN THE AIR/ CLOUDS, SO THIS IS NOT ABOUT HIS SECOND COMING, BUT THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH)
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

THERE WILL BE THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS ON THE SAME DAY WITH THE RAPTURE EVENT, OR AT THE SAME TIME WHEN THE DEAD IN CHRIST IS RAISED AND AFTER THAT THE RAPTURE...BUT NOT BEFORE THE FIRST RESURRECTION AND THE RAPTURE LIKE SOME OF THE FALSE PROPHECY SAY.
IF THOSE 3 DAYS OF DARKNESS HAPPEN , ..EVEN JUST A DAY BEFORE THE RAPTURE, IS NOT BIBLICAL AT ALL, MANY CHRISTIANS CAN FIGURE OUT WHEN THE RAPTURE WILL BE EXACTLY.. DO NOT BE DECEIVED WITH SUCH THE TEACHING, WHAT CHRISTIANS MUST DO, THEY ARE ANTICIPATING JESUS CHRIST AND FOCUS ON HIM / HIS RETURNS/ THE RAPTURE NOT THE THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS OR MORE WORRIED PREPARING FOOD, WATER, FIRST AID, CASH MONEY, GENERATOR OR STUFF LIKE THAT FOR 3 DAYS OF DARKNESS, ALTHOUGH NOTHING WRONG PREPARING FOR THE DISASTERS.

HOW DO I KNOW THE 3 DAYS OF DARKNESS WILL HAPPEN ON THE RESURRECTION EVENT AND RIGHT BEFORE THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH, ALTHOUGH THOSE EVENTS ON THE SAME DAY ?

LET'S READ HERE :
MATT 27: 37-54, KJV
37 And set up over his head his accusation written, This Is Jesus The King Of The Jews.
38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
45 NOW FROM THE SIXTH HOUR THERE WAS DARKNESS OVER ALL THE LAND UNTO THE NINTH HOUR. ((**FOR 3 HOURS THE WORLD TURNED INTO THE DARKNESS AFTER JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED AND DIED ON THE CROSS, THIS IS REPRESENTED THERE WILL BE 3 DAYS OF DARKNESS ON THE RESURRECTION AND RAPTURE EVENTS, SEE IN EXO 10 :22-23 "22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings."))

46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. ((**RIGHT AFTER JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS , THE 3 HOURS DARKNESS AND EARTHQUAKES HAPPENED, THERE WAS THE RESURRECTION EVENT FOR THE DEAD PEOPLE , THEY WERE RESURRECTED AND HAVE COME BACK TO ALIVE IN THEIR FLESH EARTHLY BODIES RIGHT AFTER JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS, BUT IN THE NEAR FUTURE ON THE RAPTURE EVENTS, THE DEAD IN CHRIST WILL RISE AND CHANGE IN THEIR GLORIFIED BODIES NOT IN THEIR FLESH HUMAN BODIES, LIKE IN MATTHEW 27, SO IT PROVES THE 3 DAYS OF DARKNESS WILL HAPPEN ON THE FIRST RESURRECTION BEFORE THE RAPTURE, BUT ON THE SAME DAY BECAUSE ALL THOSE EVENTS WILL HAPPEN IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE !!))
54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, TRULY THIS WAS THE SON OF GOD.

***Jonah 1: 3-17, KJV
13 Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring it to the land; but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them.
14 Wherefore they cried unto the Lord, and said, We beseech thee, O Lord, we beseech thee, let us not perish for this man's life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, O Lord, hast done as it pleased thee.
15 So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.
16 Then the men feared the Lord exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto the Lord, and made vows.
17 NOW THE LORD HAD PREPARED A GREAT FISH TO SWALLOW UP JONAH. AND JONAH WAS IN THE BELLY OF THE FISH THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS.

THOSE 3 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS, JONAH WAS IN THE BELLY OF THE FISH IS RELATED WITH THE 3 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS OF DARKNESS THAT WILL FALL UPON THE EARTH RIGHT AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.

That Jonah is a type of Christ is clear from Jesus’ own words. In Matthew 12:38-42 and THAT EVIL WICKED GENERATION LIKE OUR GENERATION NOW, THAT WE ARE GIVEN THE SIGN OF THE PROPHET JONAH (JONAH IS IN HEBREW IN OLD TESTAMENT)/ JONAS IN GREEK IN NEW TESTAMENT).
MATT 12:38-42, KJV
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (***JESUS WAS BURRIED AND STAYED FOR 3 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS IN THE CENTER OF THE EARTH/ PARADISE AND HELL IN ABRAHAM BOSOM, BEFORE HE WAS RESURRECTED)
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment WITH THIS GENERATION, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
42 The queen of the south SHALL RISE UP IN THE JUDGMENT WITH THIS GENERATION, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. (**THIS GENERATION IS OUR GENERATION NOW WILL BE JUDGED BY GOD, JUST LIKE THE PEOPLE IN NINEVEH IN JONAH'S TIMES)

TRIBULATION FOR 7 YRS WON'T HAPPEN UNTIL AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
THE ANTICHRIST, THE PEACE TREATY IN DANIEL 9:27 AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST IN REV 13/ MID GREAT TRIBULATION WILL NOT HAPPEN UNTIL AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.

THIS VISION-DREAM PROVES PRE TRIBULATION RAPTURE-THE RAPTURE BEFORE 7 YEARS TRIBULATION IS BEGUN, IT IS BIBLICAL AND IT WILL HAPPEN FOR REAL, TAKE HEED, DON'T BE DECEIVED BY FALSE DOCTRINE PRE TRIB RAPTURE DOES NOT EXIST !

THIS DREAM FROM THE LORD PROVES :THE RAPTURE IS PRE TRIBULATION RAPTURE OR BEFORE 7 YEARS TRIBULATION. THE RAPTURE IS NOT SECRET OR SILENT BUT WITH A LOT OF CHAOS , DESTRUCTION , NATURAL DISASTERS AND NOISE. EVERYBODY KNOW SOMETHING BIG HAPPEN ON THAT DAY EVEN THE UNBELIEVERS AND BOTH CHRISTIANS AND NON CHRISTIANS WHO NEVER HEARD ABOUT THE RAPTURE.

THE RAPTURE DREAM, METEORITE, WAR AND CHAOS DESTRUCTION ALL OVER THE WORLD, THE FALSE PROPHET, POPE FRANCIS.






ONCE THE RAPTURE HAPPENS THE WORLD IN THE PHYSICAL DARKNESS FOR 3 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS AND THE SPIRITUAL DARKNESS FOR 7 YEARS, FOR 2 WEEKS, NO TV, NO RADIO, NO INTERNET COMMUNICATION, NO COMPUTER DEVICES, NO ELECTRIC POWER, NO PHONE COMMUNICATION AND CARS, TRAINS, VEHICLES, AIRPLANES AND MACHINES , THE ONES ARE CONTROLLED BY COMPUTER DEVICES WILL NOT WORK, CAN YOU IMAGINE THE WORLD BECOME PANIC WITH ALL THESE THINGS, THE ONES ARE LEFT BEHIND AFTER THE RAPTURE ?

ONCE THE COMMUNICATION AND TV COME BACK ON, THEY WILL DECLARE THE NEW WORLD LEADER, YEAH HE IS THE ANTICHRIST, THE GOOD LOOKING YOUNG MAN, MIDDLE EASTERN LOOKING, DARK HAIR, AND FULL CHARISMA AND THEN YOU KNOW IS THE PERSON, BECAUSE YOU HEAR MY WARNING, IN CASE YOU STILL BE HERE AND MUST ENDURE 7 YEARS TRIBULATION-THE DAY OF THE LORD.





THE RAPTURE IS TRUE BIBLICAL DOCTRINE.

THE RAPTURE IS TRUE BIBLICAL DOCTRINE.
IS THAT TRUE THE RAPTURE TEACHING STARTED IN 1800'S AND SECRET RAPTURE? THIS IS FROM BABY CHRISTIANS, LUKEWARM AND BACKSLIDDEN CHRISTIANS WHO MAKE THE EXCUSE THE RAPTURE DOCTRINE IS UN BIBLICAL., THESE CHRISTIANS NEED MORE MILK THAN MEAT FIRST BECAUSE THEY DON'T READ THE BIBLE , MAKE THEIR OWN DOCTRINE AND IDEA AND THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT !

THE WORD RAPTURE IS THERE IN THE BIBLE, IT SAYS "CAUGHT UP"

The word rapture is written in the Bible :



Act 8:39 KJV

And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.



Act 8:39

Stephens 1550 Textus Receptushote [when] de [and] anebesan [they were come up] ek [out] tou [of the] hudatos [water] pneuma [the Spirit] kuriou [of the Lord] herpasen [caught away] ton [the] philippon [Phillip] kai [that] ouk [no more] eiden [saw] auton [him] ouketi [no more] ho [the] eunouchos [eunuch] eporeueto [he went] gar [and] ten [the] hodon [way] autou [on his] cairon [rejoicing]



The word caught away came from Greek word herpasen. It is the same as in 1Th 4:17.



1Th 4:17 KJV Then we which are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP [harpagesometha] together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

In Latin :

Latin Vulgate 1Th 4:17 deinde nos qui vivimus qui relinquimur simul rapiemur cum illis in nubibus obviam Domino in aera et sic semper cum Domino erimus



The word rapture came from Latin word rapiemur which means harpagesometha [caught up]

Both herpasen [caught away] and harpagesometha [caught up] came from the verb harpazo which means :

ἁρπάζωharpazō



Thayer Greek Definition:

1) to seize, carry off by force

2) to seize on, claim for one's self eagerly

3) to snatch out or awayPart of Speech: verb



"Rapture", when used in eschatological terms, is an English word used in place of the Latin word "raeptius"; taken from the Vulgate, which in turn is a translation of the Koine Greek word "harpazo", which is found in the Greek New Testament manuscripts of 1 Thessalonians 4:17.

In many modern English translations of the Bible, harpazo is translated; "caught up", or "taken away".



Note :So the rapture actually is a biblical teaching.



The first Resurrection and the rapture of the church, are two different things (happens in the same time during the rapture) :

Resurrection :

1 Thes 4:16, KJV

16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:



The rapture of the church

1 Thes 4:17, KJV

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



THE PRE TRIB RAPTURE IS WRITTEN AND TAUGHT ALL OVER THE BIBLE FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT TILL THE NEW TESTAMENT IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION, THESE ARE SOME OF THEM, AND MANY OTHERS NOT JUST LISTED BELOW !

Isa 13: 6-13, KJV
6 Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand;
it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:
8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and
sorrows shall t
ake hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
9 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
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.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

Zeph 2:1-3, KJV
1Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;
2 Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord's anger come upon you.
3 Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger.

Psalm 27:5, KJV
For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

Isa 26:17-21, KJV
17 Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O Lord.
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

JEREMIAH 30:7, KJV
Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

MALACHI 3:17-18, KJV

17 And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

MALACHI 4:1, KJV
For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

Rev 3:10-11, KJV
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

UNFORTUNATELY MANY CHRISTIANS (I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT NON CHRISTIANS) WHO HATE THE RAPTURE, THEY DON'T LIKE TO HEAR ABOUT THAT, EVEN ATTACKING, SCOFFING AND MOCKING THE RAPTURE (PRE TRIB RAPTURE ) , IN THE REALITY IT'S CRYSTAL CLEAR THE BIBLE MENTIONS ABOUT THE CHURCH (BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS/ THE HOLY SPIRIT FILLED CHRISTIANS) WON'T BE HERE ON EARTH DURING 7 YRS TRIBULATION !

2 Peter 3: 3-9, KJV
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were
from the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

It is very clear in Rev 3:10

Rev 3:10 KJV
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

If Lord Jesus says Rev 3:10
Rev 3:10 KJV
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from [ἐκ] the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

It means the true Christians will be out of 7 years Tribulation.

We know MANY CHRISTIANS- POST TRIBBERS AND NON RAPTURE BELIEVERS who are carrying Post Tribulation teaching or don't believe the rapture at all, and truly they do not understand what the word ἐκ means in Rev 3:10.

SEVERAL REASONS THE ANTICHRIST IS NOT FROM USA, EUROPE, AFRICA, ASIA BUT THE MIDDLE EAST.

SEVERAL REASONS THE ANTICHRIST IS NOT FROM USA, EUROPE, AFRICA, ASIA BUT THE MIDDLE EAST.

9 Reasons Why the Antichrist is not a European , American , African other than the MIDDLE EASTERN.

1. The kingdom of the antichrist is from one of the parts of Alexander the Great's empire, none of which is in Europe and America.

2. The antichrist is called by name the "Assyrian". (Assyrian, or Seleucid, is that part of the Grecian empire out of which antichrist arises.)

3. The antichrist is also called the "KING OF THE EAST". Europe, Africa, Asia and America is not East of Israel. (see Daniel chapter 11).
The historical King of the North which occupies a great deal of Daniel chapter 11, beginning with verse 6, is the ancient King of Assyria. Verses 6,7,8,11,13,15 specifically refer by title to this ancient king, who is not a European or American. The future portion of the prophecy in Daniel 11 (which is yet unfilled) begins in verse 36 with a reference to the "king" who shall do according to his will." This king himself (as opposed to his kingdom), who is clearly the antichrist, is also referred to as the "king of the East" in verse 40, thus identifying the antichrist with the historical King of Assyria, not some European or American place of origin . It is correct to say the king proper comes (originally, upon assumption of his position of authority) from the north which can not geographically be Europe or America as a place of origin of the antichrist.

4. The historical "king of the east" (to be distinguished from the prophetic "king of the east") was the king of Assyria. (see Daniel chapter 11) Assyria is not in Europe or America.

5. The historical "king of the east" (Assyria) fought against the historical "king of the south" (Egypt) exactly as the prophetic "king of the east" will when he (the antichrist) conquers Egypt. (see Daniel chapter 11)

6. The kingdom of antichrist grows in three directions toward the south, the north and toward the pleasant land. (the pleasant land is Israel).

Daniel 8:9 And out of one of them [ one of Alexander the Great's 4 divisions ] came forth a little horn (The East) , which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the north and toward the pleasant land

Daniel 11 :35-42, KJV
35And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
36And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
37Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers (**His fathers mean the Antichrist is Abraham, Isaac and Jacob descendants, He- The Antichrist against/ reject the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/ YHWH) , nor the desire of women, (it means The Antichrist is a single/ not a gay, he is not interested with anybody both men and women, he will treat women as the SECOND CLASS CITIZEN AND WE CAN TELL WHAT'S GOING ON, IN THE MUSLIM WORLD, SUCH AS MUSLIM WOMAN IN CERTAINLY ISLAMIC COUNTRIES NOT ALLOWED TO VOTE, MUSLIM MEN ARE ALLOWED TO HAVE MORE THAN 1 WIFE EVEN UP TO 4 WIVES INCLUDING THE YOUNG CHILDREN AS THEIR WIVES, WOMEN NOT ALLOWED TO DRIVE OR GO OUT BY THEMSELVES, THE RAPE VICTIMS CANNOT DEFEND THEMSELVES UNLESS THERE ARE A LOT OF MEN WITNESSES NOT JUST ONE PERSON , MORE WOMEN WHO MEN BELIEVE, THEY COMMITTED ADULTERY AND STONED TO DEATH, FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION AND ETC, SO THE WOMEN WHO ARE LEFT BEHIND AFTER THE RAPTURE WILL BE TREATED WORSE, THIS IS NOT TALKING ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST IS A GAY ) nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. (The Antichrist want to be worshipped as God himself, started in the Middle great tribulation)
38But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces (**The god of forces is Allah, the muslim god, (WE CAN TELL FROM THE HISTORY TILL NOW, RADICAL MUSLIMS FORCE PEOPLE TO CONVERT TO THEIR RELIGIONS, IF NOT THEY TREAT OTHERS AS THEIR SECOND CLASS CITIZENS BY KILLING, RAPE, JAIL, MUST PAY HIGHER TAXES). THE ANTICHRIST WILL HONOUR ALLAH THE GOD OF FORCES, OR HE IS RELATED WITH ISLAM OR HONOR SHARIA AND JIZYA LAWS, BUT BY THE MIDDLE TRIB HE WANT TO BE WORSHIPPED AS GOD HIMSELF SEE 2 Thes 2:3-4 "3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.") : and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. (**THE ANTICHRIST'S FATHERS : THEY ARE ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB DO NOT KNOW OR DO NOT RECOGNIZE ALLAH, THE GOD OF ISLAM, BUT THE ANTICHRIST KNOWS AND HONOUR ALLAH. FROM THIS VERSE IS VERY CLEAR ALSO THE ANTICHRIST IS THE JEWISH DESCENDANT, WELL..JEWISH DESCENDANT'S FATHERS ARE ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB)
FATHERS IN THE BIBLE ARE : ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB : SEE Exo 3:6, Exo 3:15, Acts 3:13, etc
39Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god (**Allah, The Muslim God is the strange god), whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.
40 And at the time of the end shall THE KING OF THE SOUTH (**EGYPT) PUSH AT HIM (** HIM=THE ANTICHRIST) : AND THE KING OF THE NORTH (**TURKEY AND LEBANON) SHALL COME AGAINST HIM (**HIM=THE ANTICHRIST) like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.
41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the s45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

** Edom, Moab, Ammon are all the Arab countries in the Middle East.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edom

Edom was located in the region to the southeast of Israel. Mount Seir was a notable landmark in this region.

Edom and Israel, the people who descended from Jacob, never got along with each other.

Moab occupied a plateau about 3,000 feet (910 m) above the level of the Mediterranean, or 4,300 feet (1,300 m) above the Dead Sea, and rising gradually from north to south.

It was bounded on the west by the Dead Sea and the southern section of the Jordan River; on the east by Ammon and the Arabian desert, from which it was separated by low, rolling hills; and on the south by Edom.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moab

THE CONCLUSION :
"If this kingdom waxes EXCEEDING GREAT,
TOWARD THE SOUTH (EGYPT),
EAST (JORDAN, EAST SYRIA, IRAQ AS FAR AS IRAN)
and the PLEASANT LAND (Israel/Palestine).

** NORTH (TURKEY, LEBANON) **NORTH EAST (NORTH EAST SYRIA)
Follow me here: these directions point to 3 mutually exclusive compass directions.

The kingdom (not the king) is growing in THREE (3) directions. If the kingdom was West of Israel, EAST and the PLEASANT LAND would be the same direction. Therefore, the kingdom is NOT west of Israel. If the kingdom was North of Israel, the SOUTH and PLEASANT LAND would be redundant. Therefore, the kingdom is not north of Israel. This leaves SOUTH of Israel and EAST of Israel as our 2 choices. We have to eliminate the SOUTH of Israel because the antichrist attacks and conquers the king of the south - Egypt . (**EGYPT SEE ALSO ISAIAH 19:1-4)

This leaves us with EAST (**NORTH EAST SYRIA, IRAQ AS FAR AS IRAN) of Israel as the place of the antichrist's kingdom. The kingdom (as distinct from the king) is predominantly EAST of Israel .

Conclusion : IN DANIEL 11 SAYS THE KING OF THE SOUTH (**EGYPT) AND THE KING OF THE NORTH (**TURKEY AND LEBANON) AGAINST THE ANTICHRIST, SO HE -THE ANTICHRIST IS THE KING OF THE EAST !
The Antichrist is the king of the covenant/ THE FOURTH KING AND his Kingdom from the East of Israel.. Well, Jordan, East Syria, Iraq and Iran is the East of Israel
http://jesussavessooncoming.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-antichrist-is-from-iran.html

I am careful not to be American and European -centric when studying Bible prophecy, that's why it's definitely the Antichrist is not Obama or others whom many people think , because the central of the end time Bible prophecy is in Israel and the Middle East, as we can trace from Ishmael & Esau (Arab nations) against Isaac & Jacob (Israel), and the Kingdom of Satan is originally come from Iran at Abadan Island.. (In this case if people truly study God's word). But The US definitely do have a big part to play. When the US dollar goes down it will collapse the $1.6 Quadrillion in derivatives and create the hyper-inflationary collapse in Revelation 6:6 (3rd seal) where it takes all day's wages for one meal. We are close close close.


7. In a military campaign moving toward the south (toward Egypt) antichrist will establish his headquarters in Israel. If he was in Europe he could not do this. (Actually, it appears that the antichrist returns from a southern campaign against Egypt.)

8. Arguments from a negative viewpoint are never quite as good as positive arguments. However, at this point let it be said that there are no scriptures which say that the antichrist is European, American or Roman. On the otherhand, there are scriptures which do say that he is an Assyrian. If one stopped at Daniel 2 a case might could be made that the antichrist was from Rome. However, one can not stop at Daniel 2, but, must include Daniel 7 and 8. ( **SEE NOTE A, BELOW)

9. The antichrist arises AMONG ten kings. These ten kings are clearly Muslim nations.



**Note A:

In Daniel 9:26 it says that the "people (Romans) of the prince that shall come" (the antichrist) "shall destroy the city and the sanctuary." This says that the antichrist will be descended from Roman peoples. There is a Muslim king whose mother was British. There is also research on the internet that shows that the Etruscans were originally from Assyria.

the Etruscans, seem to have sailed from Asia Minor to found a state in the forest wildernesses of middle Italy; some built themselves cities upon the south-east coasts of the Mediterranean and became later that people known in history as the Philistines. http://www.bartleby.com/86/18.html

Somewhere between 900 and 800 BC, the Italian peninsula was settled by a mysterious peoples called the Etruscans. We don't know where the Etruscans came from, but archaeologists suspect that they came from the eastern Mediterannean, possibly Asia Minor. http://ancienthistory.about.com/

The Roman historian Dionysius of Halicarnassus stated that this new culture had deemed themselves Rasenna, or Rasna. One theory of this name is that a large number of immigrants were from Resen, a city in Assyria. Their route is believed to have taken them from Assyria to a place called Eluthya in Egypt, where there are supposedly tomb decorations that are similar to the Etruscans. http://www.vintageadventure.com/flash/history/default.asp

In Daniel 11:37 it says "neither shall he regard the God of his fathers". Many claim that this means that the antichrist is Jewish. However, since Ishmael (the father of the Moslem nations) is the son of Abraham, it means the antichrist is a semite, one of the semitic nations.

______________________________________________________________


WHAT COUNTRY THE ANTICHRIST COMES FROM ? IN DANIEL 9:26 CLEARLY TELLS THAT AND FROM THE HISTORY IN THE PAST AND THE EVENT TODAY !

Daniel 9:26, KJV
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined

Joel Richardson give good information about it !
http://thecontroversyofzion.com/2011/09/daniel-926-who-are-the-people-of-the-prince-to-come-joel-richardson/

Perhaps the most significant supporting pillar of the European Antichrist theory is a one-line prophecy found in the ninth chapter of the Book of Daniel. This small but very important prophecy states simply that:

The people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. —Daniel 9:26

While varying interpretations have been offered as to the exact meaning of this passage, the majority position holds that this prophecy is telling us that the specific people (or peoples) who destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD are the ancestors of the peoples who in the last days would be the primary followers of the Antichrist (the prince or ruler who is to come). So according to this position, the verse should be understood as follows:

The people (the primary followers) of the prince (the Antichrist) that will come (in the last days), shall destroy the city (Jerusalem) and the sanctuary (the Jewish temple).

Examining the Wording of the Passage: What Does The Prophecy Actually State?

Lets begin by examining the problem with the original language. Again, briefly, the verse states the following:

The people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. —Daniel 9:26

Isaac and Ishmael: The Ancient Hatred

There is an ancient reality that is emerging here. The specific reason that the soldiers did not obey their commanders was because of the passionate hatred that they possessed for the Jews. It overwhelmed them. Then, as today, the various Middle-Eastern peoples were possessed with a demonic hatred for the Jewish people. Please take note of this: Hatred was the primary motivating factor behind the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D., it is the overriding sentiment of the surrounding Islamic nations today and it will no doubt be the primary driving factor when the armies of the Antichrist invade Israel. This hatred is seen perhaps most markedly in the gruesome episode recorded by Josephus. As the Roman armies surrounded Jerusalem, many of the citizens were choosing to surrender and desert the city. As they did so, many would swallow whatever gold or silver coins they possessed hoping to be able to retrieve them after they had escaped the city. But as they came out to surrender to the Roman soldiers as non-combatant supplicants, they met a terrible fate. The Syrian and Arab soldiers that made up the Roman armies would have none of it. Instead, Josephus tells us that the soldiers killed those who were desiring to surrender, hoping to find any gold or silver that may have been swallowed:

…THE MULTITUDE OF THE ARABIANS, WITH SYRIANS, cut up those that came as supplicants, and searched their bellies. Nor does it seem to me that any misery befell the Jews that was more terrible than this, since in one night’s time about two thousand of these deserters were thus dissected. – The Wars of The Jews, History of the Destruction of Jerusalem By Flavius Josephus Trans. William Whiston BOOK V: Chapter 13: Para 4

Conclusion

In conclusion then, the overwhelming evidence, not only from ancient historians but also modern day scholarship points us to ethnic identity of the “Roman” peoples that destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple. They were the ancestors of the Muslim peoples that dominate the entire region today.

THE ANTICHRIST COMES FROM MIDDLE EAST ISLAMIC COUNTRY, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT ! NOT JUST IN DANIEL 9:26 TALKS ABOUT THAT, INCLUDING MANY OTHER SCRIPTURAL EVIDENCES IN DIFFERENT BOOK IN THE BIBLE, AS I MENTIONED AND CLARIFIED HERE BEFORE !

The Bible again and again indicates that THE ANTICHRIST/ THE FIRST BEAST/ THE MAN OF PERDITION will come from the Middle East.

With biblical prophecy consistently pointing to the Middle East as the origin of the Antichrist, why do some people believe that the Antichrist will come from a revived Roman Empire like the European Common Market?

This deception is from a sentence in Daniel 9:26 which says, “The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.”

One subject of Daniel 9:26 above, is "the people", the other is "the ruler who will come".

The people will be of the same people as the ruler who will come. This means the people and the ruler will be of the same national origin. If the people are Greek then the leader in question will be Greek. So, when we know the national origin of the people we will also know the national origin of the leader.

Part of this prophecy was fulfilled in 70 A.D. when the Roman army destroyed Jerusalem and the Jewish sanctuary. According Josephus, the people that destroyed the sanctuary were predominately Syrian.

Some people have incorrectly assumed that, because it was a Roman army, the people who destroyed the city and the sanctuary were Romans. However, it was customary for Rome to conscript soldiers from territories they had conquered. In this campaign the Roman troops were predominately Syrians and Arabs.

Therefore, the ruler who will come will be of Syrian origin and Arabs. Syria, at that time, included some of the territory of present day Syria, Lebanon and Turkey.

The ruler who will come is the Antichrist which is confirmed in Daniel 9:27. Daniel identifies the ruler who will come this way.

“He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him"

Therefore, Daniel is indicating in this prophecy that the Antichrist will come from the Middle East.
