📯THERE IS MOST DEFINITELY A RAPTURE OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST BEFORE THE END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION:
Unto the Church of Jesus Christ I give this study. There is a lot of information here and there is so much more. I felt an urgent call in my spirit to say something of what I believe to be the Truth before things spin rapidly out of control and the Great Tribulation begins. I know many people have been waiting to hear from me on this, but I am no-one special. I am a messenger of The LORD and I am nothing without Him. I am also not here to debate, but many are and many are leading people astray with their own theories before studying in depth all of what we have been given. All of us have a right to speak what we believe after reading the Truth which is Jesus Christ and the Revelation thereof. We are too close to the end to just remain silent for fear of man. I fear only The LORD and that something needs to be said on behalf of our most blessed hope of escaping the wrath to come and to be counted worthy to stand before the Son of Man. Let he who has an ear let him hear. I am not set on pre-trib or mid-trib, but one of them IS correct. If you do not believe, that is up to you. I am still in deep study and research of this and there is more to unveil, as I have been called to prophecy. If you’re in for a good in-depth read, come now and let us reason with one another. This IS a long one. If you have questions in your spirit about what everyone else is saying, only ask The LORD and place no confidence in man. He will reveal the Truth unto you. The enemy comes to steal and to kill and to destroy and he pummels and drills with lies and half-truths. Seek and you shall find. Ask and you shall receive. Knock and the door shall be opened unto you. A DOOR IS ABOUT TO BE OPENED! Are you ready?
📯”Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”📯Revelation 19:7-8📯
📯”And the armies which were/are in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.”📯Revelation 19:14📯
The Bride Of Christ is a purged Remnant Of His Church who have made themselves spotless and white clothed in garments of righteousness arrayed in fine linen clean and white. The marriage supper of the Lamb is for the Bride Of Christ. Jesus is married to His Church and The Father is married to Israel. They are One together, we know this much. There is no triune GOD: HE IS ONE with three attributes. The Church is spiritual Israel and the Bride is spiritual Jerusalem, and we are spiritual Jews, as we have been grafted in according to Romans 11.
Revelation 19 is the prophecy of Jesus Christ coming back as King of Kings and LORD of LORDS with the armies of heaven to defeat the nations on earth, to destroy the beast system with the antichrist and the false prophet by throwing them into the lake of fire, to ride into war WITH His Bride. WE ARE WITH HIM FOR THIS EVENT. This is proven by the scriptures above and looking at these scriptures in the Greek in true meaning (below). The important thing to look at here is this: in verse 7-8 we see the marriage supper of the Lamb with the Bride happening BEFORE this happens. That means that the Bride Of Christ is in heaven before the war and the casting down of satan and his hordes, kicking off the millennial reign of Christ where satan is bound and thrown into the bottomless pit for this time (1,000 years). This is proved and clarified by verse 14 if you also look at this scripture in the Greek (below).
This verse starts off by saying, “And The armies which were/are in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen white and clean”. This word “En” is -a fixed position in a time of rest- and is referring to the Bride Of Christ (His Warrior Bride) who has made herself ready for the marriage supper of the Lamb. Okay, so we know without needing to be said that these armies include the Bride Of Christ because the angels are already clothed in fine linen white and clean and so are the prophets of old. So when Christ comes back to the earth in the physical sense of the Second Coming, HE IS WITH HIS BRIDE as He does this. We all know there is a Second Coming of Christ coming. That is completely irrefutable. What is being refuted right now is that there is/is not a rapture of the Bride Of Christ before this happens. If we truly and rightly divide the Word Of GOD with the Spirit of Prophecy Who IS Jesus Christ, we know that there is another mentioning of a catching away before the wrath of GOD is poured out which the Bride Of Christ is not appointed to. This is mainly found in 1 Thessalonians Chapters 4 and 5. Now we don’t know when the rapture will happen, whether it is pre-trib or mid-trib, either one is a possibility BUT IT HAS TO BE one or the other. One coming of Christ is described as us meeting Him in the air and He DOES NOT touch down on earth at all. The other coming of Christ is described as stated above which is the Second Coming where He DOES touch down on earth and splits the Mount Of Olives into two pieces creating a great valley as prophesied in Zechariah 14 (below). In Zechariah 14 we get an informative prophecy of the Second Coming and the Millennial Reign Of Christ on earth.
Another insight on this is that in Revelation 11:18 we see that there is a judgement happening in heaven where rewards are being given to the servants and the prophets of Christ. This is the Judgement Seat Of Christ in heaven happening AT THE SAME TIME while on earth the seals have been opened and the four horsemen have been unleashed, vials of judgements are being poured out as the trumpets blast off and wormwood has fallen to the earth. This is the last 42 months which is the wrath of GOD being poured out onto the wicked. The Judgement Seat Of Christ is meant for His Church only, and we see here this is where the rewards and crowns are being given or not given according to our deeds and what is written in the books. How can this be happening if there is no rapture of the Church until the very end? So this also shows us who study the prophecy of this Book in its original language and meaning that the Church is in heaven being judged and given rewards way before the Second Coming Of Christ in chapters 19-20.
The first three chapters of Revelation, Christ is addressing His Church and speaks of the way they are going to be judged. After the beginning of chapter 4 the Church is not mentioned again. Only two of the seven churches are even given a chance to repent and come back to their first love, Sardis and Laodicea. After this point is when GOD turns His face back to Israel His first love and specifically deals with them. Because they did not accept His Son as Messiah and LORD they are the “saints” mentioned all throughout the rest of this Book that must go through the Great Tribulation as their purging process. The Church has already been purged and taken, and in Chapter 4:1 a door is opened in heaven and a voice tells John to “come up here”. Immediately he is in the spirit before the throne of GOD. This is a shadow of the rapture of the Church.
The wrath of GOD is the “hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth” (Revelation 3:10). “Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.”(Romans 5:9-10)
There are two judgements. One for the Church and one for the wicked who did not repent nor accept Jesus as LORD. The second judgement is found happening in chapter 20 which is known as the Great White Throne Judgement. All who are found at this Judgement Seat are going to be cast into the eternal lake of fire (hell), and this judgement does not happen until after the Millennial Reign. The two judgements are 1,000 years apart (Revelation 20). Jesus has been long awaiting the marriage supper of the Lamb where He gets to be with His Bride and this is a joyful time indeed. After all this time, He isn’t just going to call us up and then come down and go to war and defeat satan and set up the Millennial Reign where He will rule the nations with a rod of iron as we are ruling and reigning with Him without the marriage supper happening first. There is no “U-Turn theology” accepted or eluded to here. He desires us first. If we read and dissect the scriptures as they are written and prophesied and truly discern the love of Christ for His Bride (Song of Solomon) we will see all throughout the Word even in the Old Testament there are countless foreshadows of the rapture of the Bride before the Great Tribulation. It’s everywhere, even in Isaiah, who Jesus quotes numbers of times.
How can we be chosen to rule and reign with Him if we first have not been given to reward to do so? Matthew 24:45-47 says this: “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods.” 2 Timothy 2:3-13 says this: “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits. Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things. Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound. Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.”
In 1 Thessalonians 5 it tells us therefore to watch and to be sober for this day (the rapture), for the Day Of The LORD shall come upon us as a thief in the night for those who are ready, spotless and white without blame (Bride Of Christ); for we shall be caught up in a moment in the twinkling of an eye together with Him in the clouds to meet The LORD in the air. Paul says to COMFORT ONE ANOTHER with these words here in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18: “For this we declare to you by the Lord’s [own] word, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord shall in no way precede [into His presence] or have any advantage at all over those who have previously fallen asleep [in Him in death]. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first. Then we, the living ones who remain [on the earth], shall simultaneously be caught up along with [the resurrected dead] in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so always (through the eternity of the eternities) we shall be with the Lord! Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words.”
THE TRUMP OF GOD IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM THE 7th ANGEL WHO BLOWS THE 7th TRUMPET! The trump of GOD is a prophetic announcement, and in 1 Thessalonians 4 it is the TRUMP OF GOD, NOT the trump of an angel! If you study the Old Testament and know Jewish history and culture and if you study the feasts of GOD you will find the hidden treasures of Truth. The last trump is the 7th angels trumpet and it is quite possible that this trump is blown parallel with the Trump Of GOD- if this happens this way the mid-trib theory would have to be correct. When the 7th angel sounds his trumpet the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our GOD. John wrote the Book of Revelation about the 7th angel sounding his trumpet 35-45 years after Paul had his vision about the Trump Of GOD and the last trump. Hebrews 12:17-29 is very important to note here as well, because Paul was talking about Moses in Exodus 19 where he went up on Mount Sinai where there was the sound of a trumpet and the voice of GOD saying, “Come Up” and Moses went up. This is also a shadow of the rapture.
Jesus coming to snatch His Bride out of harms’ way before the Great and Terrible Day Of The LORD comes is our most blessed hope and who are we to tell one another that our most blessed hope is a a lie? That there is no rapture before the Second Coming and that ALL shall have to go through the entire Tribulation? The Bible tells us not to take away the most blessed hope of Jesus Christ from anyone. The Bible tells us that we will not receive if we do not believe. BELIEVING = RECEIVING according to the Word Of GOD. Therefore if you don’t believe in this rapture does this mean you cannot go in this rapture? If you don’t watch and pray for these things as commanded and are not remaining in hope for the marriage supper with our Bridegroom which is a holy and great celebration, which is our reward for taking up our cross and crucifying our flesh being purged and purified through tribulations and testing and trials on earth, then you will not be given a white wedding garment for the marriage supper of the Lamb. Is this right? Your lack of faith and belief and endless debates which take away the most blessed hope of Christ from fellow Body members could very well hold your place to just go ahead and be left to face the entire 7 years and of the Great Tribulation Of The last 3 1/2 years. Before you study the WHOLE TRUTH, don’t preach half-truths. Know the Word and study the Word to show yourself approved before GOD and speak when you know 100% that what you are speaking on is THE 100% TRUTH.
This is why I personally have backed off from preaching at people on the rapture because it is A MYSTERY and I am excited to see what it’s going to turn out like! I’ve been personally called to prophecy, it runs deep in my bloodline, and I know that I KNOW my LORD is coming! Therefore with wisdom which only comes from GOD I know better than to preach on anything that is a mystery because it is possible to lead people astray and that is the last thing that I want. I don’t want to drill and drill on something that I could possibly be wrong on and then have to stand before my LORD and answer for that. I will preach the coming of Jesus Christ until the day I am martyred or raptured: Either way, HE IS COMING and we need to just make sure that we are making ourselves ready for Him. As His Bride we need to be preparing our hearts for Him to receive us and not get so focused and bent on when and how and this and that and who is right and who is wrong. That is where there is GREAT DANGER for the enemy to come in to deceive the heart. That is CONFUSION and GOD is not the author of confusion. That is how hearts can grow cold to the Truth too. I don’t want that for anyone.
🔥The TRUTH that I can 100% tell everyone right now is this: Make yourself ready clean and white, starve the flesh and feed the spirit, get soaked in the Word of GOD and keep your oil lamps full (let us not forget the parable of the 10 virgins, I didn’t even go there in this-that is a shadow of the rapture). Take up your cross and crucify your flesh, allow Jesus to purge you and to circumcise your heart washing you as white as snow by His Blood alone, adorn yourself with His promises and keep preaching the Gospel calling all to repentance through Christ alone. Let Him strip EVERYTHING OF THIS WORLD from you and get to the point where you love not your life to the death. Get yourself to the point in your heart that you are fully prepared to walk up to that chopping block and die for Him, prepare yourself for death unto life eternal. Set your mind on things above and come out of this world NOW. Set yourself apart and be holy as He is Holy and walk in purity and holiness and in righteousness and in honor. Time is quickening which is for the elects sake, and we need to be ready as His Bride. DO NOT IGNORE YOUR CALLING AND DO NOT FALL SILENT! Shine your lights before all of this world and proclaim the coming of The LORD unto all. This is what I have done personally. I believe 100% in a rapture before the wrath of GOD is poured out but because it is a mystery and I have been blessed with wisdom through studying relentlessly His Word that I need to just make myself ready, as I have stated above to do, and prepare my heart for THE VERY WORST: I have stopped preaching at people any one certain theology. That is the smart thing to do! The Body of Christ is divided enough and these theologies have divided us to the point where we hate one another, our Brothers and Sisters in The LORD, and the Body of Christ was never meant to be divided into denominations or by theologies. Satan himself has done this to keep us scattered and our hearts unprepared full of hatred and bitterness which will keep us here for him to torture us for sure and we will not be taken in the great assembly, the catching away, the harpazo (below). Make yourself ready for ANYTHING and don’t get caught up in all of these arguments and debates which feed directly into the hands of the enemy. Watch and pray, and prepare the way for the risen LORD!🔥
We need to be so careful for this, because this Book ends in saying this unto us, His Church who this Book was written for: “For 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: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book! He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”📯Revelation 22:18-21📯

📯”And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.”📯Revelation 19:9-16📯
📯”Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one. All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses. And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour. And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance. And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague. And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, Holiness Unto The Lord; and the pots in the Lord’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar. Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the Lord of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts.”📯Zechariah 14📯
📯”Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin: And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven. Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.”📯Hebrews 12📯
