The word "Rapture" is a word Christians have chosen to explain being caught up, or gathered up to meet Jesus in the air when He returns and takes from the planet the Righteous Children of God that fully and completely follow God's Physical Being and adhere to His Ten Commandments.
Acts 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.Wayward planetary societies do become very close to this period of time referred to as the "Rapture" when they have reach advanced stages of development in their science and technology.
1 Thessalonians 4:17 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.
2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
1 Thessalonians 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
Matthew 24:37-42 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
The "Rapture" of the Righteous true-to-faith individuals will become explained away by those left behind. Many will believe an epidemic took place when the physical bodies of those taken are left on earth (unlike what many believed, were taught, or lead to believe).
Luke 17:37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.We cannot think of any better way for the Lord to explain He does Not deal with the hundreds of thousands of physical bodies in Heaven at the "Rapture". Physical individuals will not just disappear, like many believe. Only the Spirit's and Soul's are taken at the "Rapture"!
Matthew 24:27-28 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.Being changed in a twinkling of an eye still holds true, especially at the last trump, at the end of God's planned workings for this planet earth, when God settles-up with all evil, evil doers, and the ungodly individuals upon the planet.
1 Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.We know a flesh body coming from a wayward planet cannot enter the Kingdom of God, because it is corruptible (1Corinthians 15:50, 1Corinthians 15:53).
All the little children upon the planet with a *Soul* under the age of accountability will be taken off the planet with the "Rapture" taking place. Their Spirit and Soul will be taken from their old body on earth. They will be given a New Physical Body in heaven to live in eternally.
A child not formed in the womb through procreation, but formed outside the womb, do Not have a *Soul* to obtain eternal living life, and will not be taken. (more information concerning the human spirit and soul is found on this website).
Matthew 24:19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
All the Righteous obedient adults that are true-to-faith in keeping and walking in God's law of Righteousness, the ten commandments (After obtaining salvation through Jesus Christ), and having the knowledge of God Physically being Jesus Christ will be taken. Their Spirit and Soul will be taken from their old body on earth. They will be given a New Physical Body in heaven to live in eternally.
Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.These Son's of God are rewarded a New Physical Son of God body, fashioned after that of Christ, for their Spirit and Soul to live in for eternity.
Philippians 3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.Their outward man changed from corruption to incorruption, so they may inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.This is the first resurrection.
1 Corinthians 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
2 Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
Revelation 20:4-5 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
The Truly Righteous individuals that have overcome sin will be taken off the planet by Jesus Christ to a place of safety before all hell breaks loose (so to speak) upon this wayward planet.
Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
Revelation 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Revelation 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Revelation 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
The Truly Righteous individuals that have overcome sin will be taken off the planet by Jesus Christ to a place of safety.
John 14:2 In my Father's house (universe) are many mansions (planets): if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
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.
Hebrews 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds ;
Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
The Truly Righteous individuals will be taken to the righteous home He went to prepare for His Sons of God. A New Created planet earth!
Isaiah 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
Isaiah 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Luke 20:35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world , and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
The Truly Righteous individuals will be taken by Jesus Christ to a place of safety before no flesh is saved, or no faith is found upon the planet.
Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass , and to stand before the Son of man.
Those Truly Righteous individuals obtained from off this wayward planet at the "Rapture" shall reign with Christ for 1000 years upon the New Created planet earth that Jesus did go to prepare for them.
Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.A day (marriage supper) with the Lord is as a thousand years upon this planet.
2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Revelation 21:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
Those Sons of God "Raptured" will be learning how to use their New Son of God bodies that have many abilities.
Those Sons of God "Raptured" will be learning how to use their New Son of God bodies to return with Christ to this planet earth for the battle of Gog and Magog.
Jude 1:14-15 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
Revelation 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
With the taking place of the "Rapture", there is found many individuals that had laid claim to be followers of Jesus Christ, yet did pick and choose what they did follow in Christ.
It is the blindness that those individuals do have towards the knowledge of *the Word* of God, and what God has voiced in scriptures. Those individuals do not afford themselves the necessary faith and strength (being lukewarm) to become taken by Jesus Christ in that "Rapture".
Revelation 3:15-16 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Individuals not taken in the "Rapture" do become deeply caught off guard by the actual occurrence of the "Rapture". Leaving these lukewarm followers that do remain filled with much shock, bewilderment, and even anger in not becoming a part of that "Rapture" of the Truly Righteous.
This shock, bewilderment, and anger is only added:
• To question the actual occurrence of the "Rapture" of the Truly Righteous.These remaining (left behind) individuals will be given avenues within delusions and lies which can justify their lukewarm views, faith, and beliefs that did keep them from becoming a part of the "Rapture" of the Truly Righteous.
• To question and even alter their views, faith, and beliefs in the actuality of God, or His Godliness.
• To question the actuality of God in the Flesh being Jesus Christ.
All of which causes for those remaining individuals to begin upon even disputing God's Physical Reality being Jesus Christ, to more deeply fall by the wayside through those delusions and lies put forth.
The blindness of those left behind individuals towards God, His Godliness, and sin does become so great that it causes for the human existence to become altered through cloning, to the point where human existence does become but a reflection of God's initial creativity:
• Spiritually.Then there will be little that wayward individuals are able to do to salvage mankind's initial *Image* creativity by God.
• Resemblance and existence.
Clones are created in wayward man's *image* without a vehicle (a Living Soul) to exist eternally. Clones cease to exist upon physical death.
John 10:10 The thief (Satan- Devil) cometh to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I (Jesus Christ) came that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.Any hope for Salvation through Jesus Christ becomes also taken away for those remaining individuals.
2 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
There is far less hope left to become truly able to ward off falling prey to a total blindness of, or towards sin for those remaining individuals.
The days following the "Rapture" of the Truly Righteous will be the hardest last days (1000 years) ever to become known upon the planet for those remaining individuals.
