Is there really a Pre Trib Rapture? Part One

419

In Messiah’s Body today many believers here in Israel, including many Messianic leaders believe in a Pre Trib Rapture. These believers in a Pre Trib Rapture claim that over 1/3 of the world’s believers in Yeshua also believe in a Pre Trib Rapture.  

Like all the other believers, Pre Trib Rapture believers can see what is rapidly coming upon the earth, a One World Government with absolute totalitarian control. Many may be probably thinking, “I didn’t become a believer to die for this. Get me out of here!”

Before I show you the Truth about Pre Trib Rapture, I need to first ask you one question.  What do you mean by rapture? Are you referring to the words in 1st Thessalonians 4:16, 17, ‘and the dead in Messiah shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up (raptured) together with them in the clouds 

to meet the Lord (Yeshua) in the air.  And thus we shall always be with the Lord.’  This statement is referring to those believers in Yeshua’s who are still alive on the earth at the end, when Yeshua is returning from Heaven back to earth with His Bride.  

All false biblical teachings will only blind you from the Truthand greatly interfere with your perceptions and anointing from God. Each deception that you believe in from your heart will only lead you into greater deceptions. Perhaps that’s why so many believers, including many pastors and leaders today have taken the jabs.   

However God is now calling ‘all hands on deck,’ to help bring in the world’s greatest Harvest. For the Great World Revival which will begin soon from Jerusalem is now just ahead of us.

“And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free!” John 8:32

When you see the following Signs begin to happen, then you will truly know that there is no Pre Trib Rapture. But why wait until then, when you can know the Truth, and be set free now?

1) The Ezekiel 38-39 Gog Magog War with Russian and Iran and other nations coming against Israel which the God of Israel wins; Then ‘the man of sin’ will surface to try to restore world peace.

2) The Israeli Orthodox religious Jews begin building their temple on Jerusalem Mount Zion hill, for doing animal sacrifices to God; 

3) A great outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit will begin falling on the believers praying in the ben Hinnom Valley in Jerusalem, leading to the World’s Greatest End Time Revival and Harvest of souls.

Here are three different bible Scriptures where God is specifically talking about taking the believers out of here …

Revelation 3:10 “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” 

Luke 21:34 “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with… cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 21:35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 21:36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” 

Malachi 3:17 “And I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” 3:18 Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.” 

What hour of trial, and what Day that you may be counted worthy of escape from all these things is God talking about here?

God is talking about the believers being spared from the Wrath of God, which will come upon the whole world, to test those on earth, which happens just before our Lord Yeshua returns from Heaven with His Bride and the rest of His believing armies.  

For the last 2000 years all true believers who have died, have gone to Heaven to be with the Lord Yeshua. 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord

1 Thessalonians 1:10  … and to wait for His Son from Heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Yeshua who delivers us from the Wrath to come

1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God did not appoint us to Wrath, but to obtain Salvation through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, 5:10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.  

Zephaniah 2:3 Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth, who have upheld His justice.  Seek righteousness, seek humility.  It may be that you will be hidden in the Day of the LORD’s anger

To be ‘Raised Up’ in the Last Day

In the book of John chapter six there are four places where Yeshua promised to raise up the believers in Him in the last day. Yeshua’s teachings about being raised up in the last day definitely go against all the Pre Trib Rapture theories.

John 6:38 “For I have come down from Heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. 6:39  This is the will of My Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.”  

John 6:44 “No one can come to Me unless My Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.” 

John 6:40 “And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have Everlasting Lifeand I will raise him up at the last day.”  

John 6:54 “Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My Blood has Eternal Life, and I will raise him up at the last day.” 

What does it mean to be raised up at the last day? It means that on that special Day when Lord Yeshua returns from Heaven with His Bride and the rest of His believing armies, and with all His holy angels, that when He sounds that Last Shofar blast, called the Great Trump, that then all the believers still alive on earth will suddenly be raised up into His presence in the air with all the other believers who are coming with Yeshua from Heaven.

Matthew 10:22 “But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”

Matthew 24:13 “But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”

John 5:25 “Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is comingand now is, when the dead will hear the Voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.” 

Matthew 24:27 “For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will be the coming of the Son of Man. 24:28 For wherever the carcass (the dead body) is, there the eagles will be gathered together. 24:29 Immediately after the Tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 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. 24:31 And He will send His angels with a Great Sound of a Trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 24:32 Now learn this parable from the fig tree (Israel), when its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 24:33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors! 24:34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away until all these things take place. 24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My Words will by no means pass away. 24:36 But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of Heaven, but My Father only. 24:37 “But as the days of Noah were, so also will be the coming of the Son of Man. 24:38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 24:39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 24:40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 24:41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 24:42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.” 

Luke 17:26 “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 17:27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 17:28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 17:29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 17:30 Even so will it be in the Day when the Son of Man is revealed. 17:31 In that Day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. 17:32 Remember Lot’s wife. 17:33 Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. 17:34 I tell you, in that night there will be two men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left. 17:35 Two women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left. 17:36 Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left.” 17:37 And they answered and said to Him, “Where, Lord?” So He said to them, “Wherever the Body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.” 

By the way, eagles gather together in the heavens. And also ‘the Sign’ of the Son of Man will be seeing Yeshua seated at the right hand of the Power in Heaven, seated next to His Father on His Holy Throne. Read Matthew 26:64, Mark 14:62, and also Daniel 7:9

Yeshua has been talking about the Day of the LORD when the great gathering takes place in the heavens of all the members of Yeshua’s Body coming together at His return from Heaven with His Bride. All those coming with Him from Heaven and all those still alive on the earth will all be caught up together in the heavens at His return when Yeshua uses His Voice that last time as a Shofar, and sounds the Last Trumpet, which is also called the Great Trump, as He returns to earth on the Day of the LORDon that most Holy Day of Yom Kippur, on the Day of Atonement.

Ephesians 1:10  “… that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times, He might gather together in One all things in Messiah, both which are in Heaven and which are on earth, in Him.” 

Yeshua taught us that Eternal Life is a relationship with Yeshua and His Father. This relationship develops only by keeping God’s Word, in obedience to Yeshua and to His Father.  

John 17:3 And this is Eternal Life, that they may know Youthe only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah whom You have sent.” 

John 14:21 “He who has My Commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” 

John 14:23 Yeshua answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 14:24 He who does not love Me does not keep My Words; and the Word which you hear is not Mine but My Father’s who sent Me.” 

Almost all believers who believe in a Pre Trib Rapture are using the 1 Thessalonians Scripture on the Shofar, which is one of seven Scriptures about that specific Shofar call which will be sounded by Yeshua in the heavens as He returns to earth with His Bride and the rest of His believing armies, at the end of Daniel’s 70th Week.

1 Thessalonians 4:16 The Lord shall descend from Heaven with a Shout, with the Voice of an archangel (Malakh, Messenger of the LORD, or the Angel of the LORD [it is Yeshua]), and with a Trumpet of God (that Yeshua sounds), and the dead in Messiah shall rise first; 4:17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up (raptured) together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord (Yeshua) in the air. Thus we shall always be with the Lord. 

But that Scripture has absolutely nothing to do with a Pre Trib Rapture, but with Yeshua’s return!

 Before I show you the other six Shofar Scriptures that are all about that exact same scene and Shofar call of Yeshua, all written about by other prophets in the Old and New Covenants, I want to first share with you many other Scriptures which totally rule out  all the Pre Trib Rapture theories.

Matthew 16:24 Then Yeshua said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 16:25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it!”

John 15:20 “Remember the Word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My Word, they will keep yours also. 15:21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.” 

Matthew 10:38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 10:39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.” 

Mark 8:34 When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me8:35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the Gospel’s will save it. 8:36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 8:37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 8:38 Whoever is ashamed of Me and My Words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the Glory of His Father with the holy angels.” 

1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 6:20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spiritwhich are God’s. 

Matthew 7:13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 7:14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” 

Matthew 28:18 And Yeshua came and spoke to them, saying, All Authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on earth28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nationsbaptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 28:20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the Age.”  

Revelation 12:10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the Power of His Messiah have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 12:11 And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” 

Revelation 7:13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” 7:14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the Great Tribulationand washed their robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb. 7:17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the Throne will Shepherd them and lead them to Living Fountains of Waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” 

Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give you the Authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 10:20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in Heaven.” 

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind

1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is Greater than he who is in the world. 

Philippians 4:19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in Glory by Messiah Yeshua. 

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths

1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us. 

Revelation 17:14 “These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful!” 

Psalm 138:6 Though the LORD is on high, yet He regards the lowly; but the proud He knows from afar

Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Messiah Yeshua, and have no confidence in the flesh, 3:4 though I also might have confidence in the flesh. 

Matthew 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” 

Luke 22:42 “Father … not My will, but Yours, be done.”

When our Lord Yeshua returns from Heaven back to earth with His Bride and with the rest of His believing armies, and all His angels, then the Lord Yeshua will personally destroy all His enemies who are left on the earth, as He also removes all the sin still on this planet, in what is called the Day of the LORD, in order to first cleanse the earth for His 1000 year Millennial Reign with His Bride (His Wife).

For Yeshua will be bringing Heaven down to earth

“Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!” Matthew 6:10

“ … but truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the Glory of the LORD!”  Numbers 14:21
