Hi, My name is Kathy M Storrie and welcome to my End Time blog. Thank you for dropping by. Most born-again Christians believes in the Rapture. Other names are the Blessed Hope, The Great Snatch, The Secret Gathering of the Church Bride in the Air. After Jesus arrives above the Earth there will be the archangel blows a trumpet-voice that calls up the dead in Christ first, then those who are alive in Christ next to meet Him in the air. The Bride will go with her Groom back to Heaven. While Tribulation is going on, millions of people get saved and many are martyred daily and taken home to Heaven.
#1)THE FIRST COMING of Christ came to the Earth was 2000 years ago to save the world from their sin.
In Heaven Jesus was known as THE WORD . When God spoke, THE WORD made what God spoke. He could have been making more stars, a new galaxy, a bigger solar system, a nebula the size of our sun, moons for more planets, or a unique solar system with nine planets including a special blue one called The Earth.
The Bible says, In the beginning, was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God and the Word became flesh and dwelt among men. John 1:1,4
At the first coming of Jesus to Earth, the sins of man had multiplied to the tipping point, again. God promised He would not destroy the Earth again with a flood. The plan this time was to send THE WORD to save mankind. The archangel Gabriel announced to a chosen Jewish virgin that she had found favor with God to bear His Son and call him Jesus. Mary whole-heartedly accepted the blessed news. God miraculously reduced THE WORD down to a tiny seed. The Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary and placed the seed inside her womb, where the Savior of the world was conceived and grew. Some Bible scholars have studied the Jewish festivals and believe that Jesus was conceived in December and born in September.
#2) Durning THE SECOND COMING, He comes secretly to gather the spotless Bride the Church to Himself in the air above the Earth. The Groom Jesus takes His Bride home to Heaven to be "delivered from the wrath to come" and "the hour of temptation". In Heaven there is a marriage ceremony of Bride and the Groom. Afterward, the saints are judged according to their works on Earth for Jesus whether, good or bad, and they receive their due rewards from the Father.
God does not want His children going through the tribulation wrath that has been reserved for the wicked. God will not punish the spotless righteous together with the wicked unrighteous.
Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will "keep thee from the hour of temptation", which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
God does not want His Son nor the angels to know the hour He will come to get His Bride, the Church. It may have something to do with Satan not finding out. I believe Jesus wants the believers to escape quietly and quickly because He will be taking the believers through Satan's domain in the second heaven and Jesus wants to pull the wool over his eyes.
Mark 13:32 “But about that day or hour (of the return of Christ) no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
Nobody knows but the Father, when the Rapture will happen, not even Jesus or the Angels. So, if there's no Rapture and the 7 year Tribulation is almost over, the whole world will see Jesus is coming and have time to signal the armies who have already gathered in the middle east against Israel to fight Him and His Angels. The Rapture is imminent which means it can happen any second with no time to get ready. But, at the 3rd Coming the wicked will be waiting with their armies.
The Archangel will blow a trumpet voice that only the Christians can hear saying, "COME UP HERE!"
At THE RAPTURE there will be millions of people disappearing all over the world. People won’t know what happened and why their loved ones, friends, babies, and children are missing. The emotional trauma will cause much chaos, fear, vehicle accidents, confusion, rioting, stealing, murder, and rebellion. With not enough military to control the crazy masses, they will probably have to establish the military or martial law.
Titus 2:13 “waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.”
After THE RAPTURE there is a seven-year Tribulation period. Why seven years? You can find it in Daniel 9:24 where God allowed the Jews 70 weeks ((70x7=490 years) to finish the transgression and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness. When 483 years passed Jesus died on the cross. There were 7 years left (483+7=490) for the Jews to finish the transgression. These last 7 years will start counting down the second after the Rapture.
I Thessalonians 4:16–17 “For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.”
The 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ (or the Rapture) is a happy event. The 3rd Coming of Jesus Christ (called the 2nd Coming by most Christians) is a judgment on the nations that mistreated Israel.
#3) THE THIRD COMING is at the end of tribulation with Jesus and His saints finishing up the Supper of the Lamb in Heaven before they mount their white steeds to go to Earth. After mounting, the saints will follow King Jesus toward the blue planet, where every eye will see Him coming either in person or on satellite TV. When Jesus sees the armies getting ready to attack His beloved Israel He pours out the wrath of God with the sword of His mouth upon a wicked, satanic world.
THE THIRD COMING of Jesus is at the end of the seven-year Tribulation coming to stop Armageddon. The Antichrist will have a 200 million strong soldier army gathering against Israel when the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords approach the Middle East with His saints and His Mighty Host arriving at His THIRD COMING. The half-man, half-demon Antichrist will control the army hybrids (human and demon) who want to die but can't, high tech machine-like soldiers, attacking drones, huge stinging scorpions, laboratory giants five stories tall, fallen-angel shape-shift lizards flying in saucers to intimidate and control the masses, etc. Satan will try to wipe out enough people so God has to start over. That's why God said if he didn't shorten the end time days all of humanity would be slaughtered. Satan will use his fallen angel/demon army to try and defeat the Son of God.
Over 2,000 years ago when Christians were being hunted down like animals and thrown to the lions, many apostles thought they were living in the tribulation Jesus told them about. They thought the return of Christ would be soon. Some people today believe the tribulation period is over. WHAT? God couldn’t send Jesus to rapture them back then until after 2,000 years. The gospel of Jesus Christ was in its infancy in 70 A.D. and billions of unbelievers had not heard the gospel yet.
The future return of the Lamb of God has been a serious topic of discussion among modern evangelicals for the last 100 to 200 years. Since 70 A.D. every believer thought there was only one return of God’s Son. (the 2nd Coming). While comparing the "return of Jesus Christ" scriptures on paper, a pastor saw that the rapture and the second coming were not one coming but two comings. He explained to his co-pastors that the 2nd COMING of Christ is THE RAPTURE; and the 3rd COMING of Christ will be when he returns to stop ARMAGEDDON then set up His Millennial Kingdom Reign in Jerusalem.
