52 )  Texts speaking of 2 Believers "Raptures" (See also Chapter 35)

 

Someone asked me if one text spoke of the 2 "Raptures" of the Church and True Believers (basis of all true doctrine according this pastor).

The Lord has shown me (after a precise prayer about it) that the following 2 texts of Scripture reveal the 2 end-time "raptures", with an early rapture and another rapture/transportation at the end of the Great Tribulation: Revelation 12 and Ruth 2

 

Several other texts, including Zephaniah 2, speak only of one special "transport" and a special protection for Israel on the Day of the Lord ...

A second time. 

 

If the first (and only) Rapture does not require the help of the Angels, because God proceeds to a creation (thus out of time) by transforming the mortal bodies of his children into spiritual bodies;

The second "Rapture": Transport and Implementation of Security, will require the help of the Angels who will carry in safe place (the Rest of His People - Isaiah 11-11) the believers who have survived the great tribulation, in the place prepared by God for their safety, while He will destroy all the nations that came to Jerusalem in His One Day of Just Vengeance. At that time there will be no transformation of mortal bodies into spiritual bodies, so it will be the angels who will have to ensure this Transport of Believers. As many men of God in the scriptures were divinely transported without having their bodies transformed.

 

First Text : Revelation 12

Indeed, in verse 5, the child who will shepherd the nations is taken to heaven : 1st resurrection / rapture before the Great Tribulation (The Son who is born and must reign over the nations represents CHRIST, the mystery of God (Colossians 2- 2) whose head is Jesus and whose body is his Church (Ephesians 1-23) - Together They will reign over the nations according to Revelation 2-26, 12-5, Daniel 7-14, 22 and 27) (See Chap. 5-1-a);

And

In verse 17, Jewish and Christian believers (called the REST OF the WOMAN’s POSTERITY) during the Great Tribulation will be subject to evil persecutions and will ultimately have the destiny set forth by Matthew 24-40 / 41 - 2nd Rapture / transportation - after the persecutions detailed in Matthew 24-9 and 15 to 26 at the end of the Great Tribulation.

We can conclude from this Scripture designation - the REST OF the WOMAN’s POSTERITY - that the MAIN WOMAN’s POSTERITY will participate in the first rapture / resurrection described in verse 5, while only the REST of her seed will experience diabolical persecutions and will participate in the 2nd rapture / transportation at the end of the Great Tribulation.

 

 

 

 

 

Addition writes on Monday March 16, 2020:

    Here is another 3rd text speaking of 2 Elevations of Zion = True Believers through the ages, (See Chapter 19)

    First, Rapture of the Church and then securing the Rest of the Posterity.

 

 

 

Some other Texts :

Zephaniah 2-3 Seek Jehovah, all of you who are humble in the land of Israel, who practice his ordinances. seek justice, seek humility! Perhaps you will be spared (Hebrews: "Tissateru" - literally: hidden - in the sense of having a mysterious destiny, hidden, as a mystery - as God who hides himself according to Psalm 89/47) in the day of the wrath of the Lord.

Zephaniah 1-10 And on the day of the Lord's sacrifice there will be loud cries for the fish gate (North of Jerusalem - under Golgotha), and howls from the second quarter of the city, and a great roar coming from the hills.

This particular protection refers (for Israel, in the texts of Zephaniah and Zechariah) certainly to the removal mentioned in Matthew 24-40 / 41, a short removal / transport, from all the earth (4 winds, from one end of heaven to the other) and from all over Israel, of all remnant elected from around the world and 1/3 of the Jews (who humbly seek the righteousness of God - Zephaniah 2-3), who will be put by God in protection in the Valley of mountains, created by God, and detailed in Zechariah 14. They will be transported by angels if they are too far from this Divine Providential Valley. One will be taken by the angels (because marked with the seal of God - Revelation 9-4), the other left. But 2/3 will perish, and 1/3 will remain (Zechariah 13-8/9)

God specifies:

Zechariah 13-8 In all the land, says the LORD, the two thirds shall be destroyed, shall perish, and the other third shall remain. 9 And I will put the third part in the fire, and I will cleanse it as silver is cleansed, and I will test it as gold is tried. He will call on my name, and I will answer him; I will say: It is my people! And he will say, The LORD is my God!

Zechariah 9-14 Yahweh will be seen over them; and his arrow will go flash like lightning; and the Lord Yahweh will blow the trumpet, and will go with whirlwinds of the south. 15 Yahweh of Armies will defend them; and they will destroy and overcome with sling stones; and they will drink, and roar as through wine; and they will be filled like bowls, like the corners of the altar. 16 Yahweh their God will save them in that day as the flock of his people; for they are like the jewels of a crown, lifted on high over his land.

Zechariah 14-3 And Jehovah shall go forth, and fight against these nations, as he fights in the day of battle. 4 And his feet shall be on that day on the hill of the olive-tree, which is toward Jerusalem on the east side; The mountain of olive trees will split in the middle, to the east and west, and a very large valley will be formed: Half of the mountain will recede towards the north, and half towards the south. 5 Then you will flee in the valley of my mountains, for the valley of the mountains will extend to Atzel; You will flee as you fled before the earthquake, in the time of Uzziah king of Judah. And Jehovah my God will come, and all his saints with him.

 

(see Appendix 4 and 5)

 

They will be transported by angels if they are too far from this Divine Providential Valley.

Isaiah 11-11 At the same time, the Lord will spread his hand a second time, to redeem the rest of his people, scattered in Assyria and Egypt, to Pathros and Ethiopia, to Elam, to Shinar, and to Hamath; the islands of the sea. 12 And he shall raise up a banner for the nations, and gather the exiles of Israel, and gather the scattered of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Ezekiel 39-27 When I have brought them back from the peoples, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations. 28 They shall know that I am Yahweh their God, in that I caused them to go into captivity among the nations, and have gathered them to their own land; and I will leave none of them any more there; 29 neither will I hide my face any more from them; for I have poured out my Spirit on the house of Israel, says the Lord Yahweh.

If in Chapters 38 and 39 of Ezekiel, God speaks of a war which will take place at the beginning of the 7 years of tribulation (because they will make fire for seven years with weapons - verse 9 ; War detailed in Appendix 10-b), we see in the end of chapter 39 that God will gather all the people of Israel whom He will want to save, without leaving a single one. And it’s after this great gathering that God will pour out on them A spirit of grace and supplication. This great gathering will take place just before The Coming in Glory of the Messiah, The One they pierced.

 

Matthew 24-30 Then shall the sign of the Son of Man appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 He will send his angels with the trumpet of sound, and they will gather his chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other ... 40 Then, of two men who will be in a field, one will be taken and the other left; 41 of two women grinding at the mill, one will be taken and the other left.

 

God affirms in Exodus 19-4: You have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagle's wings and brought to me (the people of Israel with a multitude of people - Exodus 12-38).

This is a prophecy of what God will do at the end of time. God will transport by angels his humble and repentant people, at the foot of Golgotha, the place where His Son was denied and pierced by the Jewish people and set aside for 2000 years. Then the Jewish people will be saved. Zechariah 12-10 Then will I pour on the house of David, and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, a spirit of grace and of supplication, and they shall look on me whom they have pierced. They will weep over him as we cry over an only son, They will cry bitterly over him as we cry over a firstborn.

 

Gathering where?

Otherwise in the valley of the mountains

just under Golgotha,

the place of the Crucifixion of the Lamb of God,

where the judgment of God has already fallen

and from which the righteousness of God has sprung

for the justification of every sinner who believes

to the substitute given by God,

The only way of salvation

for the repentant sinner.

For you my friend,

tell you JESUS!

 

Golgotha will rise then

like the highest mountain

Isaiah 2-2 (See Appendix 4)

At the foot of Golgotha, they will cry bitterly.

 

 

4) How to solve these 2 enigma / mysteries of the Word of God :

  • No one knows the day of Jesus' return in glory, when the Word of God gives precisely the day count: 1260 days, 42 months, 3.5 times after the triggering event?
  • After the return in glory of Jesus that every eye will see, one will be taken by the angels, the other left, while the rapture of the Church is planned before the great tribulation?

 

We must accept to question our own interpretations and let ourselves be guided by the Holy Spirit to understand the harmony of all the texts of the Word of God.

 

  1. Firstly set the undeniable chronologies detailed in the texts of the Word of God.

 

Moses prophesies  in Exodus 19-4

1- Transport by the angels then 2- Gathering at the feet of the Messiah

You have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagle's wings and brought to me (the people of Israel with a multitude of people - Exodus 12-38). This is a prophecy of what God will achieve at the end of time. God will transport by angels his humble and repentant people, to the foot of Golgotha, the place where His Son was denied and pierced by the Jewish people and then set aside for 2000 years. Then the Jewish people will be saved. Zechariah 12-10 Then I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication, and they will look upon me, whom they have pierced. They will weep over him as we weep over an only son, They will weep bitterly over him as we weep over a firstborn.

 

Ezekiel prophesies the end of the war with Magog in Ezekiel 39-27

When I bring them back from the peoples, When I gather them from the land of their enemies, I will be sanctified by them in the eyes of many nations. 28 And they will know that I am Jehovah their God, Who had brought them captive among the nations, And who gathers them together in their land; I will not leave any of them with them, 29 nor will I hide my face from them any more, for I will pour out my spirit on the house of Israel, says the Lord Jehovah.

1- War against Magog then 2- Gathering of Israel from all countries then 3- Spread Spirit then finally 4- Visible Messiah - Lord's Day

A brief rapture / transport by the angels, of all the earth and gathering in the valley created by God under Golgotha ​​of all the elected children of Israel without exception. Then a Spirit of repentance and supplication will be poured out on them because they will understand their sin of having rejected and pierced their Messiah the first time He cames.

 

Amos prophesies in Amos 9-8-10

Behold, the Lord GOD has his eyes on the guilty kingdom. I will destroy it from the face of the earth; However, I will not destroy Jacob's house entirely, says the Lord. 9 For, behold, I will give my orders, and will shake off the house of Israel among all the nations, as one shakes with the screen, without a single grain falling to the ground. 10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword; those who say, Woe shall not come near, shall not reach us. 11 At that time I will raise up the house of David from its fall, I will repair its breaches, I will straighten its ruins, And I will rebuild it as it once was.

1- 1/3 Faithful ones (good grain) saved by God then 2- Lord's Day, manifestation of His Wrath: 2/3 perish

The guilty kingdom (all the nations) - I will give my orders (to the angels who will be deployed to set apart, to sort, and also kill with their sword) - Of all the nations the good grain will be extracted and set apart in the valley of the mountains - I will raise up from its fall (God will lead to true faith, to Christ crucified)

 

Zephaniah prophesies in Zephaniah 2-3

Seek the Lord, all you humble people of the land, who practice his ordinances! Seek justice, seek humility! Perhaps you will be hidden / spared in the day of the Lord's wrath.

1- Humble hidden / spared by God then 2- Lord's Day, manifestation of His Anger

 

Zechariah prophesies in Zechariah 14-2 to 7

I will gather all the nations to attack Jerusalem; The city will be taken, the houses will be looted, and the women raped; Half of the city will go captive, but the rest of the people will not be wiped out of the city. 3 The Lord will appear, and he will fight against these nations, as he fights in the day of battle. 4 His feet will be laid on that day on the mountain of olive trees, which is opposite Jerusalem, on the east side. The mountain of olive trees will split in the middle, east and west, And it will form a very large valley: Half of the mountain will recede to the north, And half towards the south. 5 Then you will flee into the valley of my mountains, for the valley of the mountains will extend to Atzel; You will flee as you fled from the earthquake, in the days of Ozias, king of Judah. And the Lord my God will come, and all his saints with him. 6 In that day there will be no light; There will be cold and ice. 7 It will be a single day known by the Lord, which will be neither day nor night. But towards evening the light will appear.

1- The Feet of Christ on the Mount of Olives then 2- Valley creates then 3- Flight into the valley and / or Transport by the angels if distant then finally 5- Day of the Lord, manifestation of His Wrath

A brief rapture / transport, of all the earth (from the 4 winds, from one end of the heavens to the other) and from all of the territory of Israel, elected survivors from around the world and 1/3 of the Jews (who humbly seek the justice of God - Zephaniah 2-3), who will be put by God in protection in the Valley of the mountains, created by God. They will be transported by angels if they are too far from this Divine Providential Valley. One will be taken by the angels (because marked with the seal of God - Revelation 9-4), the other left. But 2/3 will perish, and 1 third will remain (Zechariah 13-8 / 9)

 

Matthew reports in Matthew 24

This is why, when you will see the abomination of desolation, of which the prophet Daniel spoke, established in a holy place, - let him who reads be careful! ... 29 Immediately after these days of distress, the sun will darken, the moon will no longer give its light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of man will appear in heaven, all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 He will send his angels with the sounding trumpet, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other ... 36 As for the day and the hour, nobody knows, nor the angels of heaven, not the Son, but the Father alone. 37 What happened in Noah's time will also happen in the coming of the Son of Man ... 40 Then of two men who are in a field, one will be taken and the other left; 41 of two women who will grind with the millstone, one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, since you do not know what day your Lord will come.

1- Profanation of the temple by Anti-Christ then 2- Incountable time verse 29 then 3- Appearance of the Lord then 4- Transport by the angels then finally 5- Day of the Lord

 

Paul reports in 2 Thessalonians 2-1 to 12

1 With regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our meeting with him, we ask you, brothers, 2 not to let yourself be easily shaken in your common sense, and not to be disturbed, either by some inspiration, either by some word, or by some letter that seems to come from us, as if the day of the Lord was already there. 3 Let no one deceive you in any way; for the apostasy must have arrived before, and we must have seen the man of sin, the son of perdition, 4 the adversary who rises above all that is called God or from what we worship, to sit in the temple of God, proclaiming himself God. 5 Do you not remember that I told you these things when I was still at your house? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, that he may appear only in due time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity is already at work; it is only necessary that the one who still retains him has disappeared. 8 And then the ungodly will appear, which the Lord Jesus will destroy by the breath of his mouth, and which he will destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The appearance of this ungodly will be done, by the power of Satan, with all kinds of false miracles, signs and wonders, 10 and with all the deceptions of iniquity for those who perish because they have not received the love of truth to be saved. 11 God therefore sends them a power of confusion, that they may believe a lie, 12 that all who have not believed the truth, but have taken pleasure in injustice, be condemned.

1- Rapture / disappearance then 2- Anti-Christ then finally 3- Day of the Lord

The manifestation of anti-Christ can only take place when the One who restrains him has disappeared: The Set of Faithful Christians called the Body of Christ. Only one blocks everything, He who has legal authority before God, because living in a body to intervene legally on earth: The Body of Christ which is the Church. God Himself does not allow himself to intervene outside of a body on the earth where He has given authority to man. It’s all the power of prayer and Matthew 18-18 / 20

 

John reports in Revelation 12-1to5

1 A great sign appeared in Heaven: a woman wrapped in the sun, the moon under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant, and she cried, being in labor and in labor pains. 3 Yet another sign appeared in the sky; and behold, it was a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads seven tiaras. 4 Its tail carried a third of the stars in the sky and threw them on the earth. The dragon stood before the woman who was going to give birth, in order to devour her child, when she had given birth. 5 She bore a son, who is to feed all the nations with a rod of iron. And his child was taken up to God and to his throne.

1- Large Sign in Heaven then 2- Birth of the Son then 3- Rapture towards God of the Child

 

 

  1. We can therefore deduce the succession of events as follows:

 

--

 

 

  1. We deduce that 2 different removals will take place for the Saints of God.

If the first (and only) Rapture does not require the help of the Angels, because God then proceeds to a creation (therefore timeless) by transforming the mortal bodies of his children into spiritual bodies to assemble them with Jesus in One Body (John 11-52; Ephesians 3-6; Colossians 1-17; 1 Thessalonians 4-17);

The second "Rapture": Transport and Safety implementation, will require the help of the Angels who will bring to a safe place (the Rest of His People - Isaiah 11-11) the believers survivors of the great tribulation, in the place prepared by God for their safety, while He will destroy all the nations that came to Jerusalem in His One Day of Just Vengeance. There will not be at this time of transformation of the mortal bodies into spiritual bodies, it will therefore be the angels who will have to ensure this Transport of the believers. As many men of God in the scriptures could be divinely transported without being transformed in their bodies. These Saints of God will continue to live in their carnal bodies during the Millennium on earth with Their King: Jesus Christ = The Lord Jesus + His Church.

 

 

5) Here are some texts from the Word of God which show us that

the Rapture of the Saints will take place before the tribulation:

Revelation 3-10 Because you have kept the word of perseverance in me, I will also keep you at (literally: out of) the hour of temptation that will come to the whole world, to test the inhabitants of the earth.

1 Thessalonians 1-9 For we are told, about us, what access we had to you, and how you converted to God, by abandoning the idols to serve the living and true God, 10 and to wait from heaven his Son, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus, who delivers us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5- 9 For God has not intended us for anger, but for the acquisition of salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, so that either we may watch or we may sleep, we lived together with him.

Romans 1-18 The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all impiety and injustice of men who unjustly hold the truth captive.

Romans 4-25 Jesus our Lord was delivered for our trespasses, and rose again for our justification.

Romans 5-9 A fortiori therefore, now that we are justified by his blood, shall we be saved by him from anger.

Galatians 1-3 May grace and peace be given to you from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins, in order to tear us away from this evil century, according to the will of our God and Father.

Psalm 27-5 For God will protect me in his tabernacle in the day of trouble, He will hide me under the shelter of his tent; He will raise me on a rock.

Psalm 34-22 The LORD delivers the soul of his servants, and all who take refuge in him escape punishment.

Hebrews 11-7 It was by faith that Noah, divinely warned of things that were not yet seen, and seized with respectful fear, built an ark to save his family; it was through her that he condemned the world, and became heir to the justice which is obtained by faith.

Isaiah 13-9 Behold, the day of the LORD comes, a cruel day, a day of wrath and fierce fury, that will make the earth lonely, and cut off its sinners.

Luke 21-36 Watch therefore and pray at all times, so that you will have the strength to escape all these things that will happen, and to appear standing before the Son of man.

 

The Rapture of Saints before the tribulation is also in agreement with:

Matthew 24 -39 They did not suspect anything, until the flood came and carried them all: it will be the same with the advent of the Son of Man. 40 Then of two men who are in a field, one will be taken and the other left; 41 of two women who will grind in the millstone, one will be taken and the other left ... 31 He will send his angels with the sounding trumpet, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

This prophecy of Jesus describes the final safety of the elect perform by the angels, at the end of tribulation and before the manifestation of the wrath of God, on the Day of the Lord, the day of the Coming in Glory of the Messiah Jesus. The body of the elect will not be transformed as during the Rapture of the Saints, this rapid and safe transport to the valley of the mountains at the foot of Golgotha ​​will then require the help of the angels. (See Annexes 3, 4 and 5)
