If you know anything about your Bible, the Word of God, then you should know and realize we are just a few years away from what is called “The Tribulation Period”, which is the precursor to the “Second Coming of Christ” The order of all these events will begin with “The Rapture of the Body of Christ”.
Bye the way, When is that going to happen, you ask? Well, that’s the 64 Million Dollar question, now isn’t it? People have been working up theories and formulas for that event for centuries! I must admit I have participated in a few of those myself! So, when is this event going to happen? Really, I do not know, but I do have some ideas about the possibilities of when it could occur.
There are so many places to start to explain this very special event it’s mind boggling! I could start with passages of scripture interpretations, from both Testaments, phrases, the definitions of terms, and different bible characters . All of these things make this part of doctrine of the “Body of Christ” so very exciting, captivating, and worth the trouble no matter where in the scriptures it leads you!
WORKING FROM THE BOOK OF REVELATION
This passage of scripture (Rev. 19:11-21) (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.), deals with the “Second Coming of Christ”, as does over 500 verses through out the Old and New Testaments! However, from this last book in the scriptures in Chapters 6-19 deal with 4 accounts of the “Tribulation Period,” like there are 4 Gospels, noting the First Coming of Christ. Also in those chapters is no mention of the Church., The Body of Christ. Therefore, that would signify the Body of Christ was removed before the “Tribulation Period.” This is known as the “PreTribulational Rapture”.
In the Book of Revelation there are two verses which describe two raptures of two different groups of saints. The verses involved consist with the phrase “come up hither” in verse Rev. 4:1, After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. REV. 11:11-13, because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
The Rapture of the Apostle John in Rev. 4:1, who is a member of the “Body of Christ”, is thus the “Body of Christ Rapture” representative. The Rapture of the Two Witnesses, Rev. 11:12, Moses and Elijah, members of the Nation of Israel, and located in the “Tribulation Period” and Thus they represent the Rapture of the Tribulation Saints! Moses and Elijah, returned from the dead, are confirmed as the two witnesses by their ministries mentioned in the same chapter Rev. 11:6, “These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.” Therefore, the first “RAPTURE” takes place before the Tribulation Period, the second one near the end of the Tribulation Period, right before the Second Coming of the Lord. to rule in his “KINGDOM OF HEAVEN”, for a Millennium!
HOW THE TIMING IS CALCULATED
One way the timing is calculated by the use of Deut. 16:16, “Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the Lord thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the Lord empty::” and also Leviticus 23, concerning the Feasts of the LORD. Israel was to keep each year on the significant month and day. The Lord Jesus fulfilled each of the Spring Feasts to the day and hour, represented here by the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which included his Death, Burial, and his Resurrection on the Feast of First-Friuts, which we call Easter. The Feast of Weeks, according to the book of Leviticus 23 :15-22, is the Feast of the Harvest, to be fulfilled 50 days after the Feast of First Fruits. Jesus will fulfill, once the Feast of Trumpets, (The Rapture of Tribulation Saints), and the Feast of Atonement are ended, the Feasts of Tabernacles, the same day he laid in a manger!
THE CURRENT STATE 0F AFFAIRS
The politics of this country’s has gone awry! Obama had this country near ready for the “Tribulation Period” and alongs comes Trump, instead of H. Clinton. GOD shows this country a great mercy in choosing Trump as the 45th president! Donald Trump reversed everything Barack Obama tried to set up for Hillary Clinton to complete the New One World Order! Her opportunity has been over turned and the starting of the “Tribulation Period” postponed for a little while longer. The “Body of Christ” is still available to be entered, with the profession of faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, and a REPENTANCE of your sin! Romans 10:9-10:, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
WHAT IS AFTER THE CHURCH IS CAUGHT UP.
Be Aware, Don’t count Hillary Clinton out just yet! It has been reported, “that if she put in her hat in the race for president, she would be a point above Biden in the polls”, (Bill O’Reilly, Patriot Radio), Tuesday December 10, 2019! Just a thought! What would that look like? 2016 election all over again here in 2020??? Right now the Democrat’s, I Believe, they do not have anyone who is able to win the next election. But if Hillary Clinton threw her hat in the ring on this it maybe a different story. However, if she waited four years, making her 76 years old, that would be a different story also! We’ve already talked about when that could happen, that being within the next 5 years.
Dennis Prager’s new movie “No Safe Places” out this past week, gives a very precise view of how this country is moving along in its “CURRENT STATE 0F AFFAIRS“. The next Democrat to become president will have no trouble in completing what President Obama was trying to accomplish! Place this country in the position of becoming part of the One World Government, following the Globalist Agenda! This is what God, through Satan, is going to do in setting up the time of the “Tribulation Period”! Daniel 9:27 is all about that time, And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” This one week is 7 years long, the midst of the week is 3.5 years, 42 months, 1260 days, all lengths of time noted for events happening to Israel in the Book of Revelation.
news reports President Trump is ahead in the polls over all of the Democrats runners for that office carrying many of the Blue states he won over Hillary in the last election! If God allows President Trump to remain as president till 2024 this will indeed push the “Tribulation Period” out a little further. Remember, the possible “Pentecost” dates are May 31, 2020, June 5, 2022, and June 8, 2025. While, there is no date given for the “Church Rapture” in the scriptures! However, the Scriptures do give enough evidence that a “Church Rapture” will occur and this evidence does point to the “Day of Pentecost” in some appointed years of possibility, as mentioned already!
The Fall Feats, Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, Feast of Atonement, Tishri 10-14, and Feast of Tabernacles, Tishri 15-22, all fall within 15 days of each other on the Hebrew calendar. These will all happen in the same year and that is the 64 million dollar question, What Year? I have given three possible dates for Church Rapture” “Pentecost” dates are May 31, 2020, June 5, 2022, and June 8, 2025.
President Trump’s Presidency, assuming he is re-elected, will end in 2024. Then we shall begin to watch the USA crumble if we are still here till June 8, 2025 and the “Tribulation Period” will be approaching. There is no time of how long before the “Tribulation Period” starts after the “Church Rapture” happens that has not been determined as of yet.
