Hebrews 6:1 as it is written: 

“Therefore, leaving the (elementary) principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on to perfection (5047) …”

The Greek word for perfection is “teliotace.” It is the Strong’s word (5047). This word, perfection, translated as “teliotace” comes from the Greek word, “telios,” which means “completeness, full grown, adult, full·age, mature.” The Greek word, “telios,” is the Strong’s word (5046). The word, perfection, translated as “teliotace” means “completeness or full maturity.”

Yeshua - Mercy & Grace

The greatest desire of a Christian should be to grow in knowledge and understanding of God after they are saved so that they can have a deep, intimate relationship with God, they can have a deeper knowledge of God’s Word and know God’s ways. This is the message of Jeremiah 9:23-24 as it is written:

“Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.”  (source info)

The Feasts/Festivals of The Lord YHWH – not of Israel :)The Feasts are God’s Plan of Redemption Through Yahshua (Jesus) :-D

All of the festivals are, at the same time, both historical and prophetic & teach about the Messiah (Yeshua), or Jesus. (source info

Levitcus 23:2 Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.

YHWH

Holy Convocations are Dress Rehearsals of The Real Thing ::

The Spring Festivals/Feasts Teach About Yahshua’s First Arrival ::

  1. Passover — Jesus Sacrificial Lamb of God
  2. Unleaaved Bread — Jesus placed in the Tomb
  3. First Fruits — Jesus Raised From The Dead
  4. Pentecost — The Holy Spirit Sent

The Fall Feasts Teach About Jesus/Yeshua/Yahshua’s Second Arrival ::

  1. The Feast of Trumpets/Yom Teruah/Rosh Hasahana — The Rapture
  2. The Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur — Armageddon
  3. The Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot — The 1,000 Year Millennial Reign of Yahshua

HOW DO WE GROW IN SPIRITUAL MATURITY?

In Isaiah 28:9-10 it tells us how we are to grow spiritually. Just like a model relationship between a man and a woman grows over time, we grow in our knowledge and understanding of God over time as well while living our Christian life and walking in a deeper knowledge and understanding of God and His ways. This can be seen in Isaiah 28:9-10 as it is written:

“Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.”

Therefore, we are instructed by God to grow in knowledge and understanding of God, His Word, and His ways, and we are to do it gradually over time, “line upon line, precept upon precept.”  — Source

A DISCIPLE  WILL LOVE ONE ANOTHER  (Disciple = Student/Pupil/Learner)

As a Christian, how would you like for God to command a blessing upon your life? Whenever Christians dwell together in unity, God will command his blessing upon those Christians who love one another and dwell together in unity. In Psalm 133 it is written:

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity … for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life forevermore. “

A DISCIPLE WILL STUDY GOD’S WORD

Jesus was a Jew. His disciples were Jewish. The teachings of Jesus were based in the foundations of Judaism as passed down faithfully from Abraham to David to Jesus. In John 4:24, Jesus said that those who worship God will worship God in spirit and in truth. In the Jewish mindset during the days of Jesus, the highest form of worship to God was study.

If you love God and seek to be a follower of Jesus, you will be His disciple (student). By being a disciple (student) of Jesus, we will seek to learn of Jesus and the knowledge of God’s Word and the ways of the Kingdom of Heaven by studying the Bible. By studying the Word of God, God will give us revelation and understanding of His Word through the help of the Holy Spirit. In John 14:26, the Holy Spirit was sent to teach us all things concerning God’s Word as it is written:

“But the comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name; he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

The Holy Spirit will lead us, guide us, and teach us all things concerning God and His Word. In John 16:13 it is written: “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth … (source info)

Just as the spring festivals (Passover, Firstfruits, and Shavuot) have been perfectly fulfilled in the first coming of Yeshua as Mashiach ben Yosef, so the fall festivals (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot) will be fulfilled in His second coming as Mashiach ben David. Since the first advent fulfilled all of the spring holidays to the smallest of details, we believe that His second advent portends similar fulfillment as revealed in the fall holidays. Let us thank God for His great plan of salvation revealed in the festivals… Awaiting for the heavenly shofar blast with you all! – www.hebrew4christians.com

The Rapture Of The Bride, The Church

Jesus is Returning For His Bride (The Church). Christians are Betrothed – Legally Married to Yeshua/Jesus – Right Now :)

The Feast of Trumpets, The Ancient Jewish Wedding & The Parable of The Ten Virgins – Matthew 25:1-13, All Have One Thing In Common — They Are All A Picture Of The Rapture ! :)

The Feast of Trumpets – Yom Teruah (Rosh Hashana)

  • Hoping This is When The Rapture will Happen — Hoping Pre-Trib — Will Possibly happen same exact day Daniel 9:27 is Confirmed. (Feast = Day no man knows the day or hour)
    • Leviticus 23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.
Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets -- The Day that know man knows the day or the hour

Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets — The Day that know man knows the day or the hour

  • Yom Teruah/The Feast of Trumpets Takes Place The First Day of the Seventh Month. The First Day Begins whenever the new moon is sited — Hence no one knows the Day/Hour of The Feast :) [only Feast that falls on the first day of a month it may be] — Seven is The # of Completion — The Feast (or the month) was the Final Harvest in Ancient Israel (End of Harvest of Souls For Church, This side of the Rapture) Article - small source
  • The trumpet was the signal for the field workers to come into the Temple. At that instant the faithful would stop harvesting, even if there were more crops to bring in, and left immediately for worship service. The shofar sound would awaken the conscience of the people. Source 
    • Think Rapture Verse :: Matthew 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.   Article 
    • The Feasts are Divine Appointments — Happen at a Scheduled Time

The Ancient Jewish Wedding - (source info)

  • Parallels Salvation & The Rapture very closely
  • The Rapture :: 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
  • The day of the ceremony was a surprise to both the groom and the bride. When the bridegroom was asked the date of the wedding, he could only say something like, “No man knows except my father.”
    • In An Ancient Jewish Wedding :: According to Jewish wedding customs at the time of Jesus’ earthly ministry, the bridegroom came at a day and hour that his bride did not know. As he came, the friend of the bridegroom went before him and shouted, “Behold, the bridegroom comes.”

  • This shout would be accompanied by the blowing of a shofar—a trumpet made from a ram’s horn. As the shout was heard, the bridegroom would get his bride and take her back to his father’s house, where the ceremony and celebration would take place.
  • At The Last Supper — Jesus said to his disciples :: John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
    • The Wonderful words Yeshua spoke above, would be like the last thing the Bridegroom would say to His Bride in an Ancient Jewish Wedding – before leaving and not seeing her again for some time.
    • The Bridegroom would go and build a room/honeymoon chamber onto his father’s house — Think Jesus/Yah’shua going to build the New Jerusalem :D and what would happen is that the Son never knew when he could go and get the Bride, because the Father (Think YHWH – Yeshua’s Father) would have to give the Ok, as to when He thought the room (think New Jerusalem :-)) was finished! :D — Then The Son could go get the Bride ! :D 
  • 60987_512174972138052_271464228_n (1)

    Matthew 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

    • Also at the Last Supper – Yeshua took a cup of wine and gave it to his disciples saying drink – this is the cup of my blood, the cup of the new covenant. 
      • In The Betrothal/Legally Married stage of An Ancient Jewish Wedding —  The Bride and Groom would share a cup of wine that would seal the marriage covenant. Ancient Jewish Wedding Article
      • The Groom would also give gifts :: Jesus- The Holy Spirit, Eternal Life, Anything, (gifts of the Holy Spirit)

    The Parable of The Ten Virgins 

    • Picture of The Rapture
    • Bridegroom arrives at night — Matthew 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
      • Same Thing that happens in an Anicent Jewish Wedding

    The Marriage of The Lamb

    • The Ancient Jewish wedding paints a beautiful picture of the coming wedding between the Lord Yeshua and His Bride - source 

    The Marriage Supper of The Lamb 

    • The wedding feast was the highlight of the wedding ceremony. It was much more extensive than what Westerners are accustomed to today. It consisted of seven full days of food, music, dance, and celebration. - source
      • It could be The Marriage Supper may take place for 7 years in Heaven, while the 7 year End of The World is Taking Place on Earth. Both Sevens may be knows as a Shabua – A period of Seven. 
      • The Marriage Supper though, may take place on Earth During The Millennium. 

    Rosh HaShanah: Names, Themes, and Idioms – (source info for below)

    1. Teshuvah (repentance) :: 
      • 40 Days — It’s possible major birth pangs/contractions (Matthew 24) could start during this time before Daniel 9:27/The Rapture on a future Yom Teruah — maybe 2014 or 2016.
    2. Rosh HaShanah (Head of the Year, Birthday of the World)
      • Rosh HaShana is the Jewish New Year 
    3. Yom Teruah (the Day of the Awakening Blast [Feast of Trumpets)
      • The Day of The Sounding of the Shofar
      • Teruah is also translated as "shout." 
      • When a king begins to reign, he is heralded with trumpets.
    4. Yom HaDin (the Day of Judgment)
      • The blowing of the shofar ushers in the day of the Lord (Joel 2:1)
      • Daniel 7:9-14 :: I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit...the judgment was set, and the books were opened. [This is Rosh HaShanah, Yom HaDin, the Day of Judgment. The books are the book of the righteous, the book of the wicked, and the book of remembrance] 
      • It was seen that on this day, G-d would sit in court and all men would pass before Him to be judged. Three great books will be opened as each man is weighed in the balance and placed into one of three categories (continue reading…)

    The Number 7 May Signal The Rapture ~ The Marriage Supper of The Lamb Happening Soon !!

    by on Aug.31, 2010, under End Times, God is Love, Spiritual Growth, The Rapture

    Shalom, There May Be An Above Average Possibility, That The Rapture Could happen at The Feast of Trumpets in one of the years of 2014 to 2016 — We are possibly in a Major “End” of all things as people know it Window. Only God knows though, we could all live and die and then go from There, Or we could be the one’s who see Jesus Return in our Life-Times, and possibly as soon as The Feast of Trumpets in 2014 to 2016 (or even sooner) :: If Not, Being on ‘More of a Serious/Focused Watch’ For Jesus To Return, Right Now and in the Years after 2016, Is The Call. At This Time of World History, it may just be the right thing to do. Maranatha!  www.thebemaseat.com - Store up Treasure in Heaven ><>

    The Epistle of Barnabas ! -- The Book of Enoch has something similar too.

    The Number 7 is The Number of Completion (7 Continents, 7 Spirits of God, 7 Candles on The Menorah, 7 Days of The Week, 7 Year Tribulation, 7 Feasts of YHWH)

    We could be at the 6,000th Year on earth (Michael Rood Calendar) — One day to God is like a 1,000 Years and a 1,000 Years as 1 Day — The 7th Day is the Day of Rest (The Sabbath) – This may Equal The Millennial Reign, the 7,000th Year. 

    The Epistle of Barnabas is saying that in 6,000 Years God is going to Finish everything.

    Here is The Book of Enoch :: Read Chapters 33 and 29 !

    The Years of 2014/2015 are going to see 4 Blood/Red Moons on YHWH’s Feast Days – which is interesting – this could signal the Beginning of The Tribulation possibly.  (Blood Red Lunar Eclipses and Solar Eclipses on God’s Holy Days in 2014-2015)

    2014-2015 — 4 Lunar Eclipses (Blood Red Moons) – 2 Solar Eclipses

    It may be this :: Lunar Eclipse = Bad for Israel ~ Solar Eclipse = Bad for the Nations

    The 7 Year Tribulation could be from 2014-2021 or maybe from 2016 to 2023.

    The Two Years of 2014 and 2016 work out with the right amount of Time, (7 Years) [The End of The World Happens in a 7 Year Time Frame - Daniel 9:27] From: The Feast of Trumpets/Yom Teruah  (Feast = The Rapture) – To The Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur (Feast = Armageddon or the Last Day of This Age) – in 2021 & 2023, Respectively – According To This Chart At: endtimepilgrim.org

    I just want to state I am not date-setting, just observing All Things Pertaining to The End – I do not know if the end will happen during any one of the two time frames just above – but it could. The years for the start time of The Tribulation, of 2014, 2015 and 2016 are interesting because of the 4 Blood Red Moons in 2014/2015 — The Tetrad of Blood Red Moons on God’s Feast Days – This could be a Significant Sign and may not happen again for another 500 Years. 

    Prudence and Love, says to still keep on a More ‘Serious/Focused Watch’ for Jesus to Return – At Every Feast of Trumpets and on any day of the year after 2016 – if the Rapture does not happen in that year or before ( Don’t tell anyone but I’m hoping for a 2014 or 2016 Rapture :) ) — We could be living in the very Last of The Last Days. 

    Maranatha ! :)

    The Jewish Roots of Christianity are where things may really start to make sense ! Feast of Trumpets ~ The Rapture

    by on Aug.23, 2010, under The Rapture

    It is The Power of God To Conceal a Matter, But The Glory of Kings To Search it out

    1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,

    (This is what happened during a Jewish Wedding back in Jesus Time – Someone or the Bridegroom would alert the Bride {Today=The Church} That the Bridegroom was arriving with a Shout!)

    and with the trump of God: (The Rapture Could take place At The Feast of Trumpets) and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, (The Rapture) to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    Leviticus 23:23 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. 25 Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

    Numbers 29:1 And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you.

    A Holy Convocation is an Assembly — You could say the same as to The Rapture – The Gathering/Assembly of The Church !

    It really could be this :::

    1. Passover = Jesus Crucifixion
    2. Unleavened Bread = Jesus Burial
    3. First Fruits = The Resurrection
    4. Pentecost = The Sending of The Holy Spirit
    5. Trumpets = The Rapture
    6. Day of Atonement = The Tribulation
    7. Tabernacles = The Millennial Kingdom

    Song of Solomon 2:10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. 11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; 12 The flowers appear….

    The Following paragraphs are From Zola Levitt ! www.levitt.com I saw Zola once or twice at The Holy Land Experience www.zionshope.org in Orlando Florida when I worked over there in the past !

    From A Christian Love Story :: This is major !

    Thus the Lord performed exactly in accordance with the first four feasts of Israel. He will do the same in the future, it is clear. We expect the Rapture of the Church on the fifth feast, the Feast of Trumpets (I Thess. 4: 16-17). We expect the return of the Lord to the earth for the start of the Kingdom on the Day of Atonement, when “all Israel will be saved” (Zech. 12:10, 13:1; Romans 11:26). And finally, the Lord will setup His Tabernacle in Jerusalem appropriately enough on the final feast, the Feast of Tabernacles. The tabernacles hark back to the shelters the Lord gave the children of Israel in the wilderness, and indeed the Lord’s Tabernacle will shelter us on this earth for the duration of the Kingdom. These final three feasts are explained in Leviticus 23:24, 27 and 34, respectively. Next “Paragraph” re-structured/edited by me: We say all of that above to show that the Lord, Who never omitted a Jewish feast, fulfilled each one even in:

      1. His crucifixion = The symbol of Passover is the sacrifice of the lamb, and Jesus fulfilled it on the cross
      2. Jesus Burial = The symbol of Unleavened Bread is the body of the Lord buried in the earth
      3. His resurrection = First Fruits, which we now call “Easter”, came on Sunday (Lev. 23: 10-12), and indeed the Lord rose as the first fruits of those to be resurrected (I Cor. 15:22-23)
      4. His sending of the Holy Spirit = The fourth feast is Pentecost, 50 days later (Lev. 23:15-16), and the Lord sent the Holy Spirit – in a great harvest Three thousand people were saved that day
      5. The Rapture ! His return at the sound of the trumpet = We expect the Rapture of the Church on the fifth feast, the Feast of Trumpets (I Thess. 4: 16-17) (Rosh Hashana)
      6. His second coming on the day when Israel atones = We expect the return of the Lord to the earth for the start of the Kingdom on The Day of Atonement, when “all Israel will be saved” (Zech. 12:10, 13:1; Romans 11:26)
      7. And His establishment of His Kingdom on Tabernacles = And finally, the Lord will setup His Tabernacle in Jerusalem appropriately enough on the final feast, the Feast of Tabernacles.

    The Best Things to Live For !!!!! \o/ Revelation 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

    The Marriage Supper of The Lamb — Blessed (To Be Envied) are all those invited (called) To The Marriage Supper of The Lamb — This could be a Celebration that could last for an Entire 7 Years or for a 1,000 Years.

    Psalm 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

    \o/ The Saints Are Happy In Heaven because they followed Christ. They rejoice with Him Forever…..

    The Lord is my inheritance and my cup; He alone will give me my reward. The measuring line has marked a lovely place for me, my inheritance is my great delight.

    The Rapture – A Crown Given to All Who Love Jesus Appearing!  ::: 2 Timothy4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

    The Bema Seat – We will receive a Reward or maybe Rewards and/or a Crown(s) — This judgment may determine our “Glory/Honor/Prestige/Status/Reigning Power/Domain” During the 1,000 Year Millennial Reign of Jesus — We may be judged on everything — Our Faithfulness and Obedience to God, in doing what God has said to do in this Life.  Examples ::: Resist Temptation, Obey, Meekness, Humility, Love, Mercy, Kindness, Fruits of The Spirit (Conduct/Behavior/Decisions) – Loving God with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength, Loving our Neighbor as our self — Evangelism, Parable of The Talents/Minas, Corporal Works of Mercy: Feeding The Poor, Clothing The Naked, Sheltering The Homeless, Visiting the Sick and Imprisoned. (Giving to Ministries that do The Corporal works of Mercy maybe just as good)

    The 1,000 Year Millennial Kingdom or Millennial Reign of Jesus — We will be Kings and Priests if we are with Jesus when we leave this life, either by Death or Rapture.

    Revelation 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

    1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation,….

    The Millennial Reign is one of the best things to live for in this life, because for a 1,000 Years we will be Kings and Priests !  Depending on our Faithfulness in this life to Jesus, our Works at The Bema Seat may determine how much “Reigning Power” we will have during the Millennium. (King of maybe a town? King of a City? King of 3 cities or more? King of a State? King of a Country/Nation?)

    The New Jerusalem - The “Glory” of Our Houses/Mansions could be determined possibly by how we have lived our life on earth in relation to Jesus/The Bible.

    The Crown of Life – James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, (approved) he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

    Jack Kinsella ::: Omega Letter & Todd from Rapture Ready

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 :: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    Article: Rapture Signs?

    by on Apr.04, 2010, under The Rapture

    Article: Rapture Signs? ::: From: www.raptureforums.com

    The thing that makes the Rapture almost a sure certainty is that in Scripture it is written that we are to be on the Watch for Jesus because one of His Returns is going to happen as a Surprise.

    This is where a Distinction is made between those who have the right Biblical Interpretation/Theological Understanding of Bible Prophecy (or Eschatology – The Study of End Time Things) :::: and those who don’t ::::

    With Bible Prophecy — If you get this right, you will understand how “The End of The World” Develops/Happens.

    Daniel’s 70 Weeks Prophecy is Perhaps the Greatest Prophecy in The Bible — The Prophecy states that when a 7 Year Peace Deal/Covenant is confirmed with Israel and (Others) “The Many”  — The End Of All Things Will Take Place (With-in a 7 Year Time Frame)

    In Essence there will be absolutely Zero Surprise of knowing when Jesus will Return. Because at the End of The 7 Year Peace Deal or 42 Months from when the Anti-Christ enters a To Be Built New Temple in Jerusalem ~~ Jesus Will Return at Armageddon, then Set up His Kingdom on Earth for 1,000 Years !!!!! So this is a Total Known & Exact Time of when Jesus Returns !

    The Surprise Return of Jesus is The Rapture, this can happen at any time before the Anti-Christ Confirms a Peace Deal with Israel and “The Many” !!!!  The Peace Deal could happen at any Time ! Meaning the Rapture Has: “Serious Possible Overtones of Occurring Soon” :)

    Maranatha !! :)

    note: The Rapture happens as a Total Surprise.  One of Jesus Returns in The Bible is likened unto a Thief Striking ~ At an Unknown Time, That’s why Christians are to always be on the Watch for Jesus To Return, as a Wise Bridesmaid, having Oil in Our Lamps ~ Matthew 25:1-13

    The Watching for Jesus to Return at an Unknown Time, is in Stark Contrast of Knowing Exactly When Jesus is Going to Return, from Understanding Daniel’s 70 Weeks Prophecy ~ In that Jesus Returns 7 (Exact) Years from the Signing/Confirming of a Peace Treaty with Israel by the Anti-Christ

    We could put the whole 2nd Coming of Jesus Return into Semantics and be like, well The Bible is talking about the Whole 7 Year End being as the Surprise to Watch for, in having to Watch for Jesus To Return ~~ Well if that’s true, cool :) ~~ But The Rapture still seems to make the most sense :) :) :) :) :) Revelation 3:10 ~ Because thou hast kept the Word of my patience, I will also keep thee from the hour of trial that shall try all those who dwell on the earth.

    {While the Tribulation is taking place on earth, in Heaven The Saints will most likely be at The Bema Seat and at their Mansions, with the Marriage Supper of The Lamb happening, maybe right before our Return to Earth or happening on Earth after our Return} ~~ We will Return with Jesus on White Horses accompanying Him from Heaven, as Jesus wages war at Armageddon ~~

    Revelation 19:9 And He saith unto me, write, Blessed (To Be Envied) are they which are called unto the Marriage Supper of The Lamb, And He saith unto me, these are the true sayings of God.

    Watch For Jesus To Return ~~ (The Unknown Time) ~~ The Rapture :::::  vs. Knowing Exactly When Jesus will Return ~ Daniel’s 70 Weeks Prophecy @ Armageddon

    ><>

    key point :: The Rapture is going to happen as a Surprise and Christians are to Always be Ready :)

    The Bible says too, that Christians are not in Darkness that “That Day” (The Day of The Lord { End of The World Stuff } [ You could even say the Rapture too ] ) should overtake us as a Thief — 1 Thessalonians 5:4 :::::::::::::: Being everything that is happening in the World in Relation to The Bible/Bible Prophecy, The Rapture Could Be Soon ! :)

    ><>

    p.s. Even if the Rapture doesn’t happen, no big deal, because the End is only 7 Years long, and if we are alive and see A 7 Year Peace Deal signed with Israel and Others by a single person (The Anti-Christ) then cool – that means only 7 years left :) But the end is going to be really bad – lots of people will die.

    The Rapture makes the most sense, because The Bible says we are caught up to meet Jesus in the Air 1Thessalonians 4:16,17 ~~ When Jesus Returns at Armageddon, His Feet touch down on The Mt. of Olives in Jerusalem, splitting the Mountain in two.

    That wouldn’t make a lot of sense, to be Raptured up to the air at Armageddon, then come right back down to earth ~~ Plus if that did happen, who would be the people who would enter in to populate the Millennium, if everyone is in a Glorified State? :)

    Lastly, an Article on Rapture Timings :) The Rapture happening during the Trib: Mid or Pre-Wrath – doesn’t make a lot of sense either, because the Surprise Element of Jesus Return is significantly reduced. A person who knows Bible Prophecy would know that Jesus would be Returning in a Known 3-1/2 To 7 Year Window of Time.
