Rapture – A Resurrection Fit for a Queen
JESUS ADVENT 2.0
A Resurrection Fit for a Queen
Let’s state it one more time so we all know for all time and eternity, the Rapture and Resurrection of the saints happens AT THE SAME MOMENT, IN THE SAME INSTANT OF TIME, THE SAME TWINKLING OF AN EYE. 1 Corinthians 15:50-54, “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Yahweh; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. 51Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep [in death], but we shall all be changed—52in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the [physically] dead will be raised incorruptible, and we [physically alive] shall be changed. 53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.””
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, “But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so Yahweh will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
15For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18Therefore comfort one another with these words.”
If you disagree with the fact of a simultaneous Rapture/Resurrection of the saints, take it up with the Apostle Paul and Yeshua. Ok, now we have that foundation laid, let’s see what Yeshua has to say about the timing of the Rapture/Resurrection in Matthew 12:38-42, “Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.”
39But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. [JESUS ADVENT 1.0] 41The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment [JESUS ADVENT 2.0] with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here. 42The queen of the South will rise up in the judgment [JESUS ADVENT 2.0] with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and indeed a greater than Solomon is here.”
In this short passage of Scripture, Yeshua Himself, the Creator of the universe, TIME STAMPS when the Rapture/Resurrection will be. In fact, He states it twice so we would be sure to GET IT. Do you see it? The Ninevites and the Queen of Sheba will resurrect IN THE JUDGMENT DAY RESURRECTION! Friends, you can argue until you are blue in the face for a PRE-tribulation Rapture, but it is not Scriptural! Isn’t it amazing that Yeshua and all the Apostles are in complete agreement as to when the Rapture/Resurrection occurs? That really should not astound us that much. Truth is truth. The truth that you know sets you free. This passage settles once and for all the argument as to when the Rapture/Resurrection will be. Verses 41-42 are the final nail in the PRE-tribulation Rapture coffin. You don’t have to interpret this passage. You can’t possibly twist this passage to mean any other time frame. The plain literal reading of this passage reveals to us that the Rapture/Resurrection will occur between a Tishri 1, Feast of Trumpets and Tishri 10, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, Judgment Day. Could Yeshua have said it any plainer? Well, He could have given us the year, but the Father didn’t want Him to tell us that minor detail. But now we know without a doubt what will be the season of the JESUS ADVENT 2.0 Rapture/Resurrection!
Now some may try to argue that the judgment that Yeshua refers to here is the Great White Throne Judgment at the end of His Millennial reign on earth. But that cistern does not hold water. Matthew 25:31-33, “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.” And 2 Timothy 4:1, “I charge you therefore before Yahweh and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:” Sorry, but the judgment of Matthew 12:41-42 is a JESUS ADVENT 2.0 judgment!
Just when I thought I was done with this series of teachings on the Rapture/Resurrection, Yeshua slaps another Scripture on me. I guess I’m not done until He’s done. My recommendation for anyone who still holds to a PRE-tribulation Rapture/Resurrection theory – REPENT!! We don’t have time to argue over the end time events, we barely have time to study them and get prepared for what’s coming. Read Yahweh’s Word, study Yahweh’s Word, but above all, BELIEVE Yahweh’s Word. It was settled in Heaven long before it was ever written down on earth.
