Christians: You Have Not Missed The Rapture

Photo by Milkovi on Unsplash

As a born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, I know I am sealed to the Holy Spirit and my salvation is secured. Yet, like a lot of Christians, I sometimes have a moment where satan tries to plant doubts in my head. The Bible, through the apostle Paul, clearly teaches a pre tribulation rapture. But, sometimes when I haven’t heard from some Christian friends in awhile, I have a fleeting thought that they have been raptured and I missed it. The comfort I have is that many believers go through this. The devil loves nothing more than to cause us discomfort, apprehension and to doubt our salvation and not trust God and what He said in His word.

The other day I was listening to a great Bible teacher by the name of Les Feldick. He is what is called: a “right divider.” That is someone who rightly divides (handles) the word of God. Feldick, who is in his 90’s and has been born again his whole adult life, shared that there were times when he wondered if he had missed the rapture. He would come home from work and find his wife was not there. Usually she would be. Then he would find a note saying that she had gone fishing. This is almost funny except for the fact that Feldick, along with many of us Christians, had a terrifying moment when he allowed doubt to set in.

The rapture, also known as “the day of Christ,” is the Christian’s hope which we look for. As Paul taught, God has not appointed us to wrath. Whether it’s satan’s wrath or God’s is irrelevant. God is not angry at Believers. We have been reconciled with Him and have the peace of God.

The apostle Paul wrote that the Rapture was a “secret” (1 Corinthians 15:51). Jesus did not disclose it in His earthly ministry, and the Twelve knew nothing about it. God revealed this secret to Paul alone. Had God revealed the resurrection? Yes. Job knew about it (Job 19:26), Jesus taught it (John 5:24, 25, 28-29, 11:23), and the common people during Jesus’ time knew about it (John 11:24). The Pharisees taught it (Acts 23, 6, 8) but the Sadducees rejected it (Matt 22:23). Paul was not revealing something new when he wrote about resurrection. But the revelation of the Rapture was new, a secret part of the resurrection.

All members of the body of Christ (the Church) will not sleep (Paul’s euphemism for death), but all will be changed (ἀλλάσσω–to change from one thing to another). Paul used this word in Romans 1:23 and Galatians 4:20. In Philippians 3:21, Paul used the term μετασχηματίζω to describe this transformation. The transformation will occur instantaneously, in a “moment” –“that which cannot be divided” from which we get our word “atom” and in the “twinkling of an eye” –a throw, stroke, beat, a moment of time). The event will occur at the last trumpet. The Rapture occurs in a sequence. Members of the body of Christ who have died will be raised first and given resurrection bodies. Then, members of the body of Christ who are alive will exchange their earthly bodies for resurrection bodies. Paul’s use of “we” in verse 52 indicated he expected the event to occur in his lifetime.

Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:22-25:

“For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming.”

A universal truth that exists for the human race is 1) all “in Adam” die and 2) all “in Christ” will be made alive. No hope exists for mankind outside of Christ. All that awaits men and women apart from Christ is death (eternal separation from God). Every human being inherits death from Adam (Genesis 2:17). We obtain life from Christ. In verse 23, Paul explained that the resurrection has an order. Christ was the first fruits of the resurrection order. Second in order will be the body of Christ, the Church. These are those who have believed Paul’s gospel (1 Cor. 15:1-4), “those who are Christ’s at His coming.” Usually, when Paul spoke of the Lord’s coming he meant the Rapture (Titus 2:13)

“For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9-11)

Apparently, false teachers had troubled the Thessalonians (2Thess 2:1-5) by telling them that the persecution they were experiencing was the Day of the Lord. These were the first post-tribulationalists. Paul was quick to crush this teaching. He wrote: “do not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the Day of the Lord has come.” The Day of the Lord was prophesied throughout the Old Testament and Jesus referred to it as the Tribulation (Matt 24:21, 22). Paul admonished them that no matter what they heard or from whom, from a spirit (angel), or some other “message” or letter purportedly from Paul, to pay no attention to it. They were to stick with Paul’s teaching that when the Lord came, He would gather them to Himself before God poured out His wrath–the Day of the Lord.

May the day of Christ (rapture) come quickly!

      1. My findings in scripture are just as you read them in my article country boy.
        And based on your comment, it appears that you are upset about my view of dispensationalism.
        But you shouldn’t be upset my friend.
        I don’t reject you; I reject dispensationalism.

        If you stick with dispensationalism, that’s your choice. And it doesn’t lessen my friendship with you at all. 🤠

        So niceness and Sonshine to you.

    1. No, I am not at all upset by your view. It isn’t a salvation issue. Christendom is divided on this. I myself clearly see Paul teaching a pre trib rapture. Others do not.

      When the Jews rejected Christ during His earthly ministry and He went to the cross and was resurrected, God started a brand new program (via the apostle Paul) which allows Gentiles to come to salvation without Israel who were originally supposed to preach to the nations. God went from law to grace. That was a dispensation. Moses to the cross, etc. So we see that God had a different purpose for different times.

    1. I’ve heard that saying before too, and it’s a good one.

      Satan is always reminding us of our sins ain’t he?

      You know what I do?

      I think of verses like Colossians 2.13 and Hebrews 1.12, where we are told that Jesus took the punishment for ALL of our sins.

      Then it’s like…hey! I’m already forgiven!

      That’s a truth that’ll get ya grinnin !!! 🤠🤠🤠

  1. Thanks for sharing how you sometimes feel that the rapture has happened and you missed it. You are right, I think most Christians (if they were honest ) would think the same thing. I do but we are all still here. Maybe there is still more work for us to do? As always thanks for sharing.

  2. I have a question. Are Christians going to see the last 4 prophecies fulfilled on earth before the rapture? Mainly, the rebuilding of the temple, the 2 witnesses, the anitchrist, the peace agreement between Israel and Palestine? (not necessarily in that order) I’m new to really studying about end times.

    1. The book of Revelation is all future. The rapture of the Church (body of Christ) will take place before the new Temple, the 2 witnesses, the antichrist, all of the Tribulation.The apostle Paul taught that believers will meet Christ in the air. (1 Thess 4:17)

      Revelation is a ‘survival guide’ for the Jews (as well as unsaved Gentiles). The 2 witnesses and other Jews will be preaching the gospel of the kingdom, (not the gospel of the grace of God that Paul taught) It will be the same one that Jesus, John the Baptist and the apostles taught: Repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of sins. They have to believe in Jesus as the Messiah. (not in His death, burial and resurrection)The Church will not be there as God has not appointed us to wrath. The Tribulation is about satan’s and God’s wrath. God is not angry with Christians, but He is with Israel for their rampant unbelief as well as the unbelief of the Gentiles who will be left behind.The purpose of all this is to have a saved remnant of Jews. When Jesus returns at His 2nd Coming, He will rule and reign on earth in Jerusalem. The Jews will be a kingdom of priests.

      The Bible tells us there are 3 people: Israel, Gentiles and the Church. They are not to be mixed up. Jews were taught the gospel of the kingdom (Jesus offered them their king and kingdom (on earth), but they rejected him so He went to the cross and to Paul alone, the risen Christ revealed the “mystery” (salvation by grace alone) Now both Jews and Gentiles are to have faith alone in Christ alone. No more works.

      1. The anti Christ has already been revealed. In Revelation and in Daniel God shows us that a kingdom will rise up in the last days. It is the 4th in Nebuchadnezzars dream and referred to as the 8th in Revelation. Its already here and has been for some time. The church has missed it. Most of the signs of Jesus Christs return are directly associated with this last kingdom.
        All of our futures as Christs followers are dependent on this prophecy from Nebuchanezzars dream and this future “kingdom” if the church missed this they will miss the Rapture for sure. Ill share with you if youre interested.

      3. Biblical prophetic time has to be established. Being that God uses different times We can do that by looking at Ezekiel 4:6 “And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side and thought shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days, I have appointed thee each day for a year.
        The other is in Numbers 14:34 ” After the number of days in which ye searched the land even forty days, each day for a year.

        Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that make desolation set up there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
        2Chronicles 36: 7 Nebuchadnezzar also carried of the vessels of the house of the Lord to Babylon 36:18-19 and all the vessels of the house of God great and small and the treasures of the house of the Lord and the treasures of the king and his princes all these he brought to Babylon and they burnt the house of God (and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof).
        This took place in 603BC Jeremiah 36:9 (gives us the time frame.)
        If you add one thousand two hundred and ninety days (years) as stated in the prophecy you get 688 AD The time Dome of the Rock was built on Mount Moriah. (Temple Mount)
        The computation of 603 B.C. and adding 1290 years will come out to 687 A.D. on a calculator. However, when going from BC to AD you must add 1 year because they left out the year “0” in the calendar. People for many years actually believed that 0 was nothing!
        Revelation 11:1-2 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod.and the angel stood saying rise measure the Temple of God and the alter and them that worship therein 2 but the court which is without the Temple leave out measure it not for it is given to the Gentiles and the Holy City they tread under foot forty two months
        “Overspreading of Abomination” in Daniel 9:27 this word is Kanap according to Strongs it means the edge or corner, border. Another words God gave them the right to build but not near the Temple.
        Mark 13:14 But when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet standing where it ought not let him flee to the mountains.
        Isaiah 14:13 For thou has said in thine heart I will ascend into heaven I will exalt my throne above the stars of god I will sit ALSO upon the mount of the congregation in the side of the
        north.”(Notice how satan uses I will sit also, instead of I will also sit? There would have to be two temples in order for two to sit.
        The last part of the prophecy John states the Gentiles will control Jerusalem for forty two months. Forty two months = 1279 years which would bring you to 1967
        The is the exact year Israel regained control of the Holy City, Jerusalem; after miraculously winning a 6 Day War against the Muslim nations that surround her. Israel won this victory against unbelievable odds and yet the losses sustained by Israel were small when compared to the damages that were inflicted upon the countries that attacked her. The Muslim nations of Egypt, Syria and Jordan suffered more than 17,000 dead while Israel suffered 983 casualties. Israel lost 46 of 300 aircraft while the three Arab nations lost 452 of 600 aircraft.
        Theres much more but I will stop here.

      4. So you take the preterist/historical view. Are you saying that satan is the antichrist? The Bible tells us that Jesus will return to rule and reign in Jerusalem. He has not done that yet. So where is Jesus? Where’s the new heaven and new earth? Has satan been cast in the lake of fire? All these things are obviously future.

        At the present time, the nation of Israel is in unbelief. If the events of Revelation have already occurred, then Israel would be a kingdom of priests with Jesus ruling there. They would also be preeminent among the nations. They are not at this time. America seems to have that role. We are still living in the times of the Gentiles. After that ends, then God will return to the Jews via the tribulation and one third of the Jews will be saved. Then Christ will return.

      5. I don’t take any” view” except what is written in scripture. You are speaking of mans made up terminology. The anti christ has been revealed the incidents prophesied are and have taken place, yes Jesus is shortly to return. He’s at the door, just like He said to the End of Age church of Laodecia.
        Revelation 11:7 “and when they have finished their testimony the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit and shall make war against them and shall over come them and kill them”
        The time when they finished their testimony was revealed to us in the prophecy of Revelation 11:3 this is the time of his witnesses which is the 1260 days that began with the setting up of the Dome of the Rock and ended with Israel becoming a nation again This is the 1260 year period from 688 AD to 1948 AD this takes us from early years of Islamic conquest all the way through the last years of the Ottoman Empire when the beast Islam suffered a wound to the head. (Caliph of Islam was absolved)
        Islam is the 8th and final kingdom on earth.
        Revelation 13:3 “and I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death and his deadly wound was healed and the world wondered after the beast”
        This wound is not physical but rather a wound to the head position, the abolishment of the Islamic Caliph on March 8,1924 this officially wounded the head of the beast. But then on June 29, 2014 Abu Bakr al Baghdadi the leader of ISIS was elected by al shura representing the Islamic state to be Khalifa. In a video released on july 5, 2014 he proclaimed himself Khalifa of Islam and asked Muslims to obey him. The head of the beast of Islam put Islam right back to doing what it did in the days of Mohamed and the Ottoman Empire, murder, stealing, and making slaves of “infidels”.
        This is an Islamic terror group taking control of land and declaring Islamic caliphate and virtually no one knew of this group until they controlled both Syria and Iraq.
        The Islamic Caliph is the supreme leader of Islam. The English word of Khalifa or caliph is substitute or one who replaces, so the caliph is literally the one who replaces Allah all Muslims give him allegiance
        Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi started out beheading, then he went to crucifixion followed by burying alive and burning alive, forcing people off tall buildings and teaching children to execute people. He killed thousands upon thousands of innocent people Christians and Muslims that disagreed with him leaving their dead bodies out on the streets. Revelation 11:9 and they of the people and kindred and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and a half and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
        Revelation 11:10 “and they that dwell on earth shall rejoice over them and make merry and shall send gifts to one another because these two prophets tormented them that dwell on earth.”
        After crucifying people they would celebrate giving gifts to each other just as the scripture says. His bloodshed was so great, even killing his own people that some of his terrorist fighters escaped the region.
        Daniel 7:25 “And he shall speak great words against the most High and shall wear out the saints of the most High and think to change time and laws, and and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing time.”
        Simply stated “time, and times, and half a time” as stated in Revelation 12:14 should be interpreted as “one year, plus two years, plus half a year” for a total of 3½ years. A “time” is given the value of one year. The original meaning of the “time” refers to a “stated period” or a “set feast;” or the amount of time from one set feast to its recurrence, which would be a period of one year.
        Which is the exact time he was in control before he fled his domain.(the world didn’t notice)
        Isaiah 14:16 They that shall narrowly look upon thee and consider saying is this the man that made the earth to tremble and did shake kingdoms. (Strongs Dictionary and the original word for narrowly is shāgah which is to glance.)
        Daniel 8:25 and through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand and he shall magnify himself in his heart and by peace shall destroy many.
        Isn’t that what we are told to believe, Islam is the “peaceful religion”? Meanwhile they are everywhere in the world killing and torturing christians demanding we make allowances for them demanding rights and their “constitution” which is the Quran. Sharia Law.
        Muslims believe that Mohamed is the “glorious one”
        Blasphemy in Islam is call “Shrik” that is to say that Jesus is the son of God.
        On the Dome of the Rock is engraved “There is only one god and he hath no son.”
        Allah has 99 names in the Quran, The powerful one, The great deceiver, The one who causes affliction to name a couple.
        The Quran and Allah call our God a “foreign God”
        Everything about signs and times are here. I pray for you to have the Holy Spirit reveal to you.

      6. We are going to have to agree to disagree and leave it there.. BTW, the antichrist will pretend to be Christ. Many Jews will believe he is their long awaited Messiah. Therefore, he cannot be satan or a Muslim. Islam is never peaceful although they claim to be. The Quran is full of violence. Of course the Dome says God has no son. Jews have never Believed God has a Son. But He does.

      7. How much more “anti-christ would the anti christ need to be? Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth and he had two horns like a lamb and he spake as a dragon”.
        The prophecy where the beast will arise from:

        Revelation 17:9-11 “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth. and there are seven kings, five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come, and when he cometh he must continue a short space and the beast that was, and is not, even he is the 8th and is of the seventh, and goeth into perdition”

        Mountains are Kingdoms
        1. Egyptian
        2. Assyrian
        3.Babylonian
        4. Mede Persian
        5.Greek
        6. Roman
        7. Ottoman
        Five are Fallen (WAS)
        1. Egyptian
        2. Assyrian
        3. Babylonian
        4.Mede Persian
        5.Greek
        The beast kingdom that WAS, and is not, and is yet to be, must come from the 5 fallen.
        (“And one is”) It cannot be Rome because Rome was in power when John was given this revelation.
        “The other that is,” yet to come” was the Ottoman Empire this last kingdom was to be of the 7th. The Ottoman Empire is Islamic.

        The Babylonian Empire returned ,ISIS is the beast that ascended out of the bottomless pit and has already gone into perdition.
        ISIS fulfills all Biblical prophecy concerning end times kingdom.
        You said we are going to have to agree to disagree however I would be interested to know what you base your believe that we haven’t seen any prophecy fulfilled concerning last days or the anti christ or the last kingdom? Are you waiting for Rome?
        You posted, “Did I miss the Rapture?” God has given us all we need to know when the Rapture will occur. I fear many will be looking for things that will never happen. Thats what the parable of the 10 virgins is referring to. It is difficult to study prophecy if it is not our gift then we can relay on other spirit filled believers along with our own discernment to lead us. But we must be open. Im afraid many will be feeling SAFE and at peace because they have followed the intelligence of man.
        Matthew 25:1-10 The kingdom of heaven is likened to 10 virgins that went forth to meet the bridegroom. five were wise and five were foolish those that were foolish took their lamps but took no oil with them but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps While the Bridegoom tarried they all slumbered and slept. and at midnight there was a cry made, the Bridegoom cometh, go out to meet Him then all the virgins rose and trimmed their lamps and the foolish said to the wise give us of your oil for our lamps have run out. Not so lest there be not enough for you and us but go ye rather to them that sell and buy for yourselves And while they went to buy the Bridegoom came and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage and the door was shut. Afterward also came the other virgins saying Lord, Lord, open to us, But he answered to them saying verily I say unto you I know you not.
        “Then the kingdom of God will be likened” to foolish and wise. Christians that have the spirit and christians that have the spirit but do not have knowledge and are foolish.
        (Notice he didn’t say to the virgins I never knew you?) But they didn’t know him well enough to know when HE would come.

        Also they took their lamps, but not enough oil. Could it be christians that have the spirit of God but not enough knowledge since oil is represented as the Holy Spirit?
        If Jesus is coming for His saints in the “twinkling of an eye” without us knowing, wouldn’t that be 3 appearances for Him? One His Rapture of the saints, and then the Second coming, which are clearly two separate events? Could missing prophetic events that have happened cause many to miss the Rapture? For most of the church is looking for things that have already occurred
        .
        Matthew 24:32-33 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. (Nov. 2, 1917; “The Balfour Declaration” allowing Jews to return to Israel) 2000 years of Bible prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes No prophecy could begin until around 600 AD because no one would have known what to look for .
        Lastly in response to your comment about everyone knowing the Quran is violent, I have to disagree. Most people have no clue that the quran teaches if you say Jesus is the son of God it’s blasphemy. Or that the Quran is the counterfeit. Every single thing in the quran is polar opposite of what Jesus taught. Mohammed even states he ascended to heaven and was given the Quran.The Quran states the God of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob ,is a foreign God. This is no counterfeit this is the real anti christ. His temple is on God’s Holy Mountain, He speaks blasphemy against God through his Quran, he has led more than a billion people astray and they persecute christians. Islam has killed over 450 million people according to some records.
        Since their hijra their migration they are in every single community in the world. This is no satan as an angel of light. This is the real anti christ. Don’t be deceived.

  3. @meohsohappy The parable of the ten virgins is not about the body of Christ but the Jewish believers in Daniel’s 70th week. It is a parable spoken to Jews by a Jew about Jewish customs, it obviously connects to the parable of the talents which follows it and again is Jews in the 70th week or time of Jacobs Trouble. The virgins represent true believers versus those who are wanna best the virgins with oil are the servants who increased their talents are sharing the Gospel of the kingdom of heaven on Earth (different from the kingdom of God whichis in heaven and populated by the Body of Christ after the rapture as well as the faithful members of the heavenly host left after Satan and his boys are cast down to earth in Revelation 12.).

    I would also point out the definitive way to recognize the Antichrist (the man not the mystery of iniquity which doth already work which is what you are actually referring to by Islam as it is all false religions) is the confirmation of the covenant with many which will offer a false peace supposedly for seven years which he will then break half way through with the abomination of desolation when he sits in the temple (which never stood on the temple mount, study the scripture carefully and you will see the threshing floor David bought stood in the city of David across the valley from the temple mount. This is shown when David bought Ornan’s threshingfloor during which time the city proper of Jerusalem is being destroyed by an angel.of the Lord across from where David and his men stand terrified watching, see 1 Chronicles 21 for this, they are standing on the threshing floor which becomes the temple site and it is not the temple mount area. The mount it stood on was leveled but originally Jerusalem stood on seven hills. What stood on the temple mount was Antonia’s fortress which was like a mini city holding a hundred leagues of soldiers and overlooked the temple mount area in the city of David. This is born out historically by the writings of Josephus among others. The site of the actual Temple was over a spring of water used for the priestly duties, there is no spring in the temple mount but the mount in the city of David which is part of Jerusalem by the way it’s like a suburb, has a spring at the base of where the mount once stood. Josephus writes of the Fortress overlooking the Temple and being big enough that the soldiers never left it , it was connected to the Temple by two walkways over to he valley between the Fortress and the Temple so that soldiers could quickly put down or control any issue they perceived from the Jews. That’s historical facts which while not given the weight and authority of Scripture do support it. The Threshingfloor was not in Jerusalem proper, the temple mount area is, therefore the temple mount can not be the threshingfloor David bought and Solomon built the Temple on and thus the Abomination of Desolation cannot be what you claim, the Dome of the Rock. That is the plain reading of Scripture alone that shows me that by reading all the Bible literally giving it the plain meaning of the words and letting it say what it says. I let scripture interpret itself by looking for the near and remote context keeping it all in light of scripture as a whole dispensationally understood (rightly divided as instructed in 2 Timothy 2:15) . I do not look to any man’s ideas in understanding Scripture God’s Word is the final authority and if anything any man says goes against the plain literal reading of Scripture then I reject man’s idea I don’t twisted scripture to fit it.

  4. The day of the Lord is the tribulation and the 2nd Coming of Christ. He will come at the end of the tribulation, not before or in the middle of it. However, at the rapture, which will occur before the tribulation, Jesus will be in mid air (not all the way on earth) to catch up believers to Him. When Christ comes, He will set up His kingdom in Jerusalem and rule. The Jews will once again be a kingdom of priests.

    The rapture has not happened, yet nor has the tribulation. Jesus is not reigning on earth. These events are all future.

  5. 2Chronicles 3:1 Then Solomon began to build the house of the Lord at Jerusalem in Mount Moriah where the Lord appeared to David his father IN THE PLACE THAT DAVID HAD PREPARED IN THE THRESHING FLOOR OF ORNAN THE JEBUSITE. Mount Moriah is called Ornan.
    Yes, There are large subterranean reservoirs under the temple mount. It is where the caverns are. beneath the mount. This piece of land is very precious to God. The high tower is where satan temped Jesus, the blood of Zachariah (Matt 23:35) was spilled there. Jesus’ tomb is also there. There is no disputing this is the Temple Mount. Also where the Dome of the Rock is located. If you miss this you miss eveything.

    If the parable of the 10 virgins is about “talents” then who is the Bridegroom? And why were they there to meet him? Why does he leave and “shut the door to heaven” to the ones who are not ready? They knew of Jesus’ return but they did not have the “oil” WORD (knowledge)

    If you believe that “The Day of the Lord” is Christs return, (which it is.)
    Then have a look at Ezekiel 28,30,31,32 It clearly mentions anti christ. (man) on earth ( vs.2,9) is being destroyed.(vs 16) (says Jesus will cast him out of the “mountain” which is really “kingdom”) The entire chapter shows us Jesus is on earth fighting the anti christ and judging the wicked.(vs19) says that ALL people shall be astonished and NEVER shalt “thou” be anymore) These are all Islamic countries. We know this because in EZ 28:24 says “and there shall be NO MORE a pricking brier unto the house of Israel NOR any grieving thorn of ALL that are ROUND about them and DESPISED them; and they shall know that I AM the Lord God. (what other religion of cult as you put it, despises the Jews like Islam? (you have to ask this question)

    Then in Chapter 30 it states again that the Day of the Lord, is near (and the Lord will come to Egypt all the “mingled people” (which are Arabs and all the surrounding countries)
    Joel 3 He will come to the land of Jehoshaphat.
    I’m not sure how you could have disputed the kingdoms that have fallen and risen in the last post it clearly shows that ISLAM are the kingdoms of the antichrist. Mohamed telling everyone HE IS THE MESSENGER Of ALLAH, that GOD IS A FOREIGN GOD

    The mark of the beast. In the Quran it calls for Muslims followers of mohamed to mark themselves so they can know Muslims from non muslims. If you study middle east you will see that they have the band on their head and the right arm band that say “There is no god but allah and mohamed is his messenger”. There is also a mark called Zibba, (sp) not sure if the spelling is correct. but Muslims take it.

    The one that blasphemes the name of christ is a harlot riding a red beast with with 10 horns drunk on wine. Do you know what that means? The horns are kingdoms. The red is blood, the wine is the blood of martyrs or those killed which are many many many for the cause of Christ. .
    The Bible says, in Revelation 4:1-2 After this i looked and behold a door was opened in heaven and the first voice I heard as it were of a trumpet talking with me which said “Come Up Hither”, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter. (notice how its a door to heaven like in the 10 virgin parable?)
    We will know if we “missed the Rapture”
    If He comes in a cloud to Rapture the saints in a “pre trib” or “post trib” like you claim, we will see him. He does not come again. So when will He come for the wicked? There is no 3 comings of the Lord.
    In Revelation 18:4 Come out of her my people that ye be not partakers of her sins and that receive not of her sins. (More than likely this is God removing the saints so they do not stay on earth while judgement is being carried out. It is not 7 years it will be a 7 Day judgement. As we think of 7 days. Rapture, fight the anti christ and nation of Islam, reaping (2 ), remember the silence in heaven during this time for 30 min.? he will judge the “christians” that were not prepared, the ones who led people astray, (the Church”) The he will judge the wicked. Lastly the kingdom of Jesus is set up on earth.

    Only the Holy Spirit can reveal these things to you. God Bless your studying.

    Good article and study. For many years I’ve believed that Math 24 must sync with Rev 6 & 7 and match Daniel’s book of truth now open to us. It takes much of the guesswork out of the study. With that said, I expect the LORD to “rapture” his people at the 6th seal which happens at the abomination which is very soon. There’s sites that help put the puzzle together like http://www.christconnection.net/id5.html and Daniel11truth.
