Rapture – Part X – One Hidden Quote From Jesus
RAPTURE – PART X
ONE HIDDEN QUOTE FROM JESUS
You’ve heard the preacher say it a thousand times, “One word from Jesus can change your life!!” Well, I’m about to give you one of the most amazing quotes of Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, that will astound your mind and explode your spirit with joy unspeakable expectation!! We are in the Book of Revelation, showing rapture die hards where the Church is in the Revelation of Jesus Christ. I’ve just been reading through Revelation, letting Yahweh show me what He wants me to see. Well, He slapped me awake with today’s verse. For now we’ll move over to Revelation 16, where the last seven bowls of Yahweh’s wrath are poured out, which we know is quite far down the timeline of the Great Tribulation. In fact, today’s Scripture is part of the SEVENTH TRUMPET OF YAHWEH, THE LAST TRUMPET, IF YOU WILL. I will cite just three verses, Revelation 16:14-16, “For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day [Judgment Day] of Yahweh Almighty.
15“Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”
16And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon [The gathering will be in the Valley of Megiddo, the battle will more than likely be in Jerusalem, but that’s another study.].”
Who do you think is speaking in verse 15? Yes, that’s our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! He speaks ONE LITTLE VERSE, QUOTED BY JOHN RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GATHERING FOR THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON!! As Pastor Paul Begley would say it, “Whaaat . . . are you serious!?!” Yes, Pastor Begley, Jesus is serious! While John the Revelator, in the middle of his vision, is writing down the events of the last seven plagues of Yahweh’s wrath, JESUS SPEAKS DIRECTLY TO JOHN, IN THE PRESENT TENSE, SAYING “I AM COMING!!” And Jesus tells John to write that quotation down right in the middle of his thought on the gathering to Armageddon! Huh? I thought that we weren’t to know the day or the hour! Jesus Christ has just revealed He second advent to earth, right here, right now, right in the middle of the gathering to the Battle of Armageddon! I am speechless, dumbfounded. Why don’t preachers preach on Revelation 16:15? Because it messes up their timelines and their rapture eschatology, that’s why! If your mind is not blown by this revelation, it should be, but it was written for those who are watching. If you are one of the five virgins awake and watching, this should keep you awake at night with real excitement in the Spirit! If you are one of the five virgins without oil, and are still sleeping, stay in bed and keep on sleeping, it won’t make a difference in your life.
Jesus gave us a clue back in Revelation 3:3, when telling the Church at Sardis, the denominational church, as Chuck Missler called it, “Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.” He gave us further clues in Matthew 24:36, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” And 42-44, “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Master is coming. 43But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
Back in 30 CE when Yeshua spoke Matthew 24 to the disciples, He did not know when He was coming back to earth. 60 years later, when John wrote Revelation, Yeshua had by then received new information from the Father of lights, He KNEW EXACTLY WHEN HE WAS RETURNING TO EARTH, during the gathering of the nations to do battle at Armageddon. Could He have made it any more clear?
Yeshua’s second coming is only a surprise to those NOT WATCHING FOR IT!! In Revelation 16:15, Jesus is speaking in the FIRST PERSON when He says He is coming. The phrase He is coming is a verb, first person, singular, PRESENT TENSE, indicative mood. The indicative mood means He is making a statement of fact of an actual occurrence!!
Could Yeshua make it any plainer as to when He returns to earth? RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GATHERING OF THE NATIONS TO DO BATTLE WITH HIM AT ARMAGEDDON!!
Now Let’s go back to John 14:1-3 and see how it relates to Revelation 16:15. Verses 1-3, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2In 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. 3And 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.” Notice Jesus said I will come again, NOT AGAIN AND AGAIN, no third coming of Messiah!! The next time Messiah’s disciples will see Him is when He comes again at HIS SECOND COMING, HIS SECOND ADVENT to earth!! And does that not make sense? Yeshua will rapture and resurrect His church, His bride, just before He pours out His final plague and wrath on the wicked of earth? Saints, you don’t have to worry about Yahweh’s wrath on the wicked, you will be protected and safe, BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER the days of the wrath of Yahweh!! His glory, anointing, and Holy Spirit will protect you. Relax, and let Yahweh show off for His bride!!
You want to be blessed as Yeshua promises in the same promise of His second coming in verse 15 of Revelation 16? Walk in righteousness and holiness and YOU WILL BE BLESSED, NOT CURSED, AS THE WICKED WILL BE!!
