Preparring Mankind for the Rapture
Notice all of the truly devastating things that COULD remove thousands if not Millions of lives from this world that are being tossed around? Bird Flu, Chemical Warfare,terrorism and Nuclear bombs.Even the possibility of a UFO invasion!
Could it be nothing more then a cover story for the coming rapture?Have the Governments of this world decided to plan ahead?Would the rapture leave the forgotten souls left behind in such a state of panic that the Government wants to plan covering up the rapture?
When millions disappear are they going to claim neutron bomb attacks from France? Will normalcy be controlled by instituting a global plan for martial law? Will people be led to speculate that Aliens have abducted their loved ones?
Those who do not believe in Christ will NOT believe when the rapture has taken place.No, they will want to believe anything BUT that.Fear for their lives,fear for the unknown,will cause the people left behind to turn to their Governments for answers.Do those people want to hear that Christ has come and that the world is on the brink of its end? Or would they prefer to be told that Christ is an Alien and that they should take up arms to fight against him and his coming army?
What do you feel would be a more accepted answer?Bird Flu?Aliens?War?Terrorists? Or The Return of Christ.
The cover up is in the works."They" know the time is short.
They also know they're ways will cause them to be left behind.And in doing so they will want to stay in power and control you.
Can you feel it? He's coming.

 Quoting: zangtang 360931

This is the event Jesus referred to when he said, “in the future you will see me, the Son of Man, sitting at God’s right hand in the place of power and coming back on the clouds of heaven.” Matthew 26:64

As they were straining their eyes to see him, two white-robed men suddenly stood there among them. They said, “Men of Galilee, why are you standing here staring at the sky? Jesus has been taken away from you into heaven. And someday, just as you saw him go, he will return!” Acts 1:10-11

“Don’t be troubled. You trust God, now trust in me. There are many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.” John 14:1-3

“But let me tell you a wonderful secret God has revealed to us. Not all of us will die, but we will all be transformed. It will happen in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, the Christians who have died will be raised with transformed bodies. And then we who are living will be transformed so that we will never die. For our perishable earthly bodies must be transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die.” 1 Corinthians 15:51-53

“Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world.” Revelation 3:10

Before He pronounces final judgment on this world, Jesus is going to give the world one last chance to repent and place their faith in Him. This is the “time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world.” The bible calls this time period “the tribulation,” and it will last seven years. Because life will be so horrific during this time period, Jesus will gather His followers before it occurs so they will be protected. Just as He protected Noah and his family from the flood, God will protect the righteous from the horrors of this time period.

When the rapture takes place, Jesus will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, accompanied by the call of the archangel and the trumpet call of God. At that time, all those who maintain a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will be transformed into the spirit and caught up into the clouds to dwell forever with the Lord. All this will happen in the “blinking of an eye.” As Paul further describes:
“I can tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not rise to meet him ahead of those who are in their graves. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the call of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, all the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and remain with him forever. So comfort and encourage each other with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18


Throughout history, many faithful servants have confused this promise with that of the glorious appearing. However, the rapture is a completely separate event. Like a thief in the night, it will take the world by complete surprise, meaning it could happen at any moment. Such is not true of the glorious appearing, which will be proceeded by the events of the Great Tribulation. Jesus described the rapture when he said:

“However, no one knows the day or the hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days before the Flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the Flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.”

“Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left. Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken, the other left. So be prepared, because you don’t know what day your Lord is coming. Know this: a homeowner who knew exactly when a burglar was coming would stay alert and not permit the house to be broken into. You also must be ready all the time. For the Son of Man will come when least expected.” Matthew 24:36-44

However, for those who are left behind, all hope is not lost. God is gracious, forgiving, and patient. Although the world will experience great tribulation, “a time of greater horror than anything the world has ever seen or ever will see again” (Matthew 24:21), those who “remain faithful even when facing death” (Revelation 2:10) will be awarded the crown of life. At the end of the seven years, Christ will return in the event known as the glorious appearing.

Prof.Abronsious...have you ever read the 1st and 2nd parables of Enoch...in The Book of Enoch? Enoch spoke of the times we are in....here is an example.

Book of Enoch

Chapter 49

1In those days the saints and the chosen shall undergo a change. The light of day shall rest upon them; and the splendour and glory of the saints shall be changed.

2In the day of trouble evil shall be heaped up upon sinners; but the righteous shall triumph in the name of the Lord of spirits.

3Others shall be made to see, that they must repent, and forsake the works of their hands; and that glory awaits them not in the presence of the Lord of spirits; yet that by his name they may be saved. The Lord of spirits will have compassion on them; for great is his mercy; and righteousness is in his judgment, and in the presence of his glory; nor in his judgment shall iniquity stand. He who repents not before him shall perish.

4Henceforward I will not have mercy on them, saith the Lord of spirits.

Rev 6:12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

Joel 2

...a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
3A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
6Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
7They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
8Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
9They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
10The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

Joel 2:25And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.


Jude
14And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
15To 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.

Daniel 12
1And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
Enoch

1In those days the saints and the chosen shall undergo a change. The light of day shall rest upon them; and the splendour and glory of the saints shall be changed.

2In the day of trouble evil shall be heaped up upon sinners; but the righteous shall triumph in the name of the Lord of spirits.

To bring forth “righteousness” on the Earth…oh…we all want that don’t we GLP...what’s “right”….what’s “fair”… of course you do.

Did you get to the part where He talks about the Kings and rulers of this world and WHO they will be subjected to on The Day of The Lord?

Book of Enoch

48:8For in the day of their anxiety and trouble ( Day of The Lord/ 6th Seal) their souls shall not be saved; and they shall be in subjection to those whom I have chosen.

9I will cast them like hay into the fire, and like lead into the water. Thus shall they burn in the presence of the righteous, and sink in the presence of the holy; nor shall a tenth part of them be found.

10But in the day of their trouble, the world shall obtain tranquility.

Did you just read that and understand GLP…again…But in the day of their trouble, the world shall obtain tranquility.



…and now you all know “WHY” they took the Book of Enoch out of “the “Bible” we have today.

Seems to me more of you folks need to be reading the Bible, the word of God, yes, there is a rapture, but many will deceive and many will be left behind because they did not open their eyes or ears. Please before it is too late, get right with the Lord Jesus. He died for your sins and if you will ask for forgiveness and ask HIM into your heart you too will be gone in a "twinkle of the eye".

Re: Preparring Mankind for the Rapture
Okay, I guess we got a little side tracked. The point that I was trying to make, was that do you think the Governments of the world are preparing a cover story for the rapture?
Whether it be a story involving the bird flu,nukes or Alien abductions to explain mass disappearances across the globe. Perhaps they will say it is a terrorist act involving neutron bombs.Who knows for certain.But with all of these forms of stories coming out in the media.Could it be possible that the Government is doing it on purpose without any actual threat of these things in order to have a cover story ready as a means of remaining in control or having some semblance of control and order after the rapture takes.
Make sense? Think about it.
Suddenly millions of people worldwide vanish.Does the Government of ever country admit that God is? Do they acknowledge that they were wrong in some religions? Do they want chaos on a global scale? Or do they tell the world a pre-conceived cover story.Aliens have suddenly appeared and abducted millions! We knew they were here,we've got pics and vids of UFO's!
Being left behind to live through the tribulation do the Governments falsify what has taken place with a story that Jesus was really an Alien and that the rapture was really abductions?Do they convince people to bare arms against Christ in an attempt to keep God from setting his Kingdom in Israel?
Take a moment to think it over.What do you think the Governments of the world would do if they knew for sure the rapture had taken place and millions were left behind?

Re: Preparring Mankind for the Rapture
There will be no rapture.

Matt 24 makes it clear. Those left behind are those that are left ALIVE unto the 2nd coming. Those taken away are those souls who have left their bodies because they were KILLED.

Study scripture. Only 2 people were ever taken alive into heaven. When the scripture talks about groups of people taken, they were killed (sodom and gomorah, peoples of noah's day etc).

If one reads Matt 24, you have to be a litterary idiot to believe that those taken were "raptured"....plus compare to the other gospels and you will find the statement "where the body is the eagles (vultures) vultures will be gathered"

NOTE: An eagle is a type of vulture.....it feeds also on dead things. Although if you want more proof check the other gospels as well....vultures is used.

I don't know about you, but body and vultures gathered together can only reference DEAD BODIES.

Plus....if you beleive these numbskull preachers, then you would have to think the sodomites and violent filled people of noah's day were righteous....what utter nonsense.

Go to thesalonians and compare to revelations. It talks about only the second coming at the LAST TRUMP and those who are alive and remain unto the 2nd coming.

THERE IS NO SECRET RAPTURE......it's hogwash and demonic deception.

The scaredy cat churchites invented the rapture doctrine and said it was before the 2nd coming because they couldn't rectify how horrible things would be on earth.....they wanted an "escape clause" that would keep lukewarm Xtians coming to there churches and soothing their consciences on a smooth easy message.

Push that bunk out of your mind and heart. Start doing what God tells you to do or you will be part of that camp that "is taken" IN DEATH AND DESTRUCTION

Re: Preparring Mankind for the Rapture
Ok before I get flamed for making a mistake:

Jesus also was taken alive into heaven...the other two were enoch and elijah.

It was an honest mistake...I should have said of all fallen mankind (forgiven from sins) only 2 people were taken alive into heave as recorded by scriptures

not so.
The Bible states that those that have died waiting will be risen from the grave,and then those who believe will be risen up with the dead to meet Jesus in the clouds.Together they will all be changed into spiritual beings taking on new bodies.
Jesus has stated that he will protect his people from the great test to come.Not that they would be killed.That is the whole point.They will NOT die.But be risen alive to meet jesus in the clouds for the transformation to spiritual beings.

 Quoting: Tlaloc 361134

not so.
The Bible states that those that have died waiting will be risen from the grave,and then those who believe will be risen up with the dead to meet Jesus in the clouds.Together they will all be changed into spiritual beings taking on new bodies.
Jesus has stated that he will protect his people from the great test to come.Not that they would be killed.That is the whole point.They will NOT die.But be risen alive to meet jesus in the clouds for the transformation to spiritual beings.

Re: Preparring Mankind for the Rapture
There will be no rapture.

Matt 24 makes it clear. Those left behind are those that are left ALIVE unto the 2nd coming. Those taken away are those souls who have left their bodies because they were KILLED.

Study scripture. Only 2 people were ever taken alive into heaven. When the scripture talks about groups of people taken, they were killed (sodom and gomorah, peoples of noah's day etc).

If one reads Matt 24, you have to be a litterary idiot to believe that those taken were "raptured"....plus compare to the other gospels and you will find the statement "where the body is the eagles (vultures) vultures will be gathered"

NOTE: An eagle is a type of vulture.....it feeds also on dead things. Although if you want more proof check the other gospels as well....vultures is used.

I don't know about you, but body and vultures gathered together can only reference DEAD BODIES.

Plus....if you beleive these numbskull preachers, then you would have to think the sodomites and violent filled people of noah's day were righteous....what utter nonsense.

Go to thesalonians and compare to revelations. It talks about only the second coming at the LAST TRUMP and those who are alive and remain unto the 2nd coming.

THERE IS NO SECRET RAPTURE......it's hogwash and demonic deception.

The scaredy cat churchites invented the rapture doctrine and said it was before the 2nd coming because they couldn't rectify how horrible things would be on earth.....they wanted an "escape clause" that would keep lukewarm Xtians coming to there churches and soothing their consciences on a smooth easy message.

Push that bunk out of your mind and heart. Start doing what God tells you to do or you will be part of that camp that "is taken" IN DEATH AND DESTRUCTION
 Quoting: Dr_Kynes 341929

you are so very mistaken in your assumptions.

This is the event Jesus referred to when he said, “in the future you will see me, the Son of Man, sitting at God’s right hand in the place of power and coming back on the clouds of heaven.” Matthew 26:64

As they were straining their eyes to see him, two white-robed men suddenly stood there among them. They said, “Men of Galilee, why are you standing here staring at the sky? Jesus has been taken away from you into heaven. And someday, just as you saw him go, he will return!” Acts 1:10-11

“Don’t be troubled. You trust God, now trust in me. There are many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.” John 14:1-3

“But let me tell you a wonderful secret God has revealed to us. Not all of us will die, but we will all be transformed. It will happen in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, the Christians who have died will be raised with transformed bodies. And then we who are living will be transformed so that we will never die. For our perishable earthly bodies must be transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die.” 1 Corinthians 15:51-53

“Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world.” Revelation 3:10

Before He pronounces final judgment on this world, Jesus is going to give the world one last chance to repent and place their faith in Him. This is the “time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world.” The bible calls this time period “the tribulation,” and it will last seven years. Because life will be so horrific during this time period, Jesus will gather His followers before it occurs so they will be protected. Just as He protected Noah and his family from the flood, God will protect the righteous from the horrors of this time period.

When the rapture takes place, Jesus will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, accompanied by the call of the archangel and the trumpet call of God. At that time, all those who maintain a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will be transformed into the spirit and caught up into the clouds to dwell forever with the Lord. All this will happen in the “blinking of an eye.” As Paul further describes:
“I can tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not rise to meet him ahead of those who are in their graves. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the call of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, all the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and remain with him forever. So comfort and encourage each other with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18


Throughout history, many faithful servants have confused this promise with that of the glorious appearing. However, the rapture is a completely separate event. Like a thief in the night, it will take the world by complete surprise, meaning it could happen at any moment. Such is not true of the glorious appearing, which will be proceeded by the events of the Great Tribulation. Jesus described the rapture when he said:

“However, no one knows the day or the hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days before the Flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the Flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.”

“Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left. Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken, the other left. So be prepared, because you don’t know what day your Lord is coming. Know this: a homeowner who knew exactly when a burglar was coming would stay alert and not permit the house to be broken into. You also must be ready all the time. For the Son of Man will come when least expected.” Matthew 24:36-44

However, for those who are left behind, all hope is not lost. God is gracious, forgiving, and patient. Although the world will experience great tribulation, “a time of greater horror than anything the world has ever seen or ever will see again” (Matthew 24:21), those who “remain faithful even when facing death” (Revelation 2:10) will be awarded the crown of life. At the end of the seven years, Christ will return in the event known as the glorious appearing.

Re: Preparring Mankind for the Rapture
The Rapture will take place.And your fears or misinterpreted information and speculations wont change it.
However,my intent in posting this thread was to bring out into the open the possibility that the worlds Governments have already conceived a cover story for when the rapture of the Church takes place.
Could the Governments be attempting to prepare mankind for this event taking place by pre-warning of such things as Bird Flu or attacks by terrorists with nukes?Could the increase in UFO sightings be part of a cover story that will insinuate that Aliens abducted millions and mankind must therefore ban together with tanks and guns and weapons of mass destruction to use against Jesus and his army?Will they,the governments pronounce Jesus as being an Alien abductor so that mankind will turn on him in an effort to destroy him? And if so,who will lead the armies of the world?Who will be the mastermind behind it all?Who will sit on the throne and issue the orders in the new world order of things? Who will fill the armies of Satan?
Are we even now,at this time being groomed for the rapture to be dismissed as an attack? The Bible predicts this very thing!

The original thread...

Notice all of the truly devastating things that COULD remove thousands if not Millions of lives from this world that are being tossed around? Bird Flu, Chemical Warfare,terrorism and Nuclear bombs.Even the possibility of a UFO invasion!
Could it be nothing more then a cover story for the coming rapture?Have the Governments of this world decided to plan ahead?Would the rapture leave the forgotten souls left behind in such a state of panic that the Government wants to plan covering up the rapture?
When millions disappear are they going to claim neutron bomb attacks from France? Will normalcy be controlled by instituting a global plan for martial law? Will people be led to speculate that Aliens have abducted their loved ones?
Those who do not believe in Christ will NOT believe when the rapture has taken place.No, they will want to believe anything BUT that.Fear for their lives,fear for the unknown,will cause the people left behind to turn to their Governments for answers.Do those people want to hear that Christ has come and that the world is on the brink of its end? Or would they prefer to be told that Christ is an Alien and that they should take up arms to fight against him and his coming army?
What do you feel would be a more accepted answer?Bird Flu?Aliens?War?Terrorists? Or The Return of Christ.
The cover up is in the works."They" know the time is short.
They also know they're ways will cause them to be left behind.And in doing so they will want to stay in power and control you.
Can you feel it? He's coming.

See You on the other Side

Re: Preparring Mankind for the Rapture
When Jesus returns to take the saints to heaven for a thousand years, it is all over on earth. Nobody is left behind. Satan is left here on an empty earth with no one to torment for a thousand years, then judgement.

Rev.20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 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.7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison.......9 and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
