Rapture for End Times Battle

Jesus is Coming Again. What to Understand About the Rapture.
Come Lord Jesus, Come!”
(Photo by Bill Hunt c. 2011)

Early one morning in the twilight moments as the Spirit wants to speak, I knew there is going to be a Rapture, a Battle, and a Feast. I could see his words in my spirit.
As we consider the Rapture, there are many who do not want to believe such. If so, just cut out these verses with your scripture scissors. Read the complete scriptures (all New King James Version), not given here due to space limitations.
Many times I've seen the vision or dream of Jesus on a magnificent snorting white charger, the horse eagerly quaking for the Great Battle to come. The Messiah King excitedly beckons, “Come on, get on! We are going!” He hands me a flashing sharp sword and the reins to my own charger. On his robe is written visibly, King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Rev 19:16).

God, the Messiah King, is coming.

Psalms indicates the coming of a battle using the term “a fire”. We will see this term again.
Ps 50:3-4 NKJ: Our God shall come, and shall not keep silent;
A fire shall devour before Him,
And it shall be very tempestuous all around Him....
Zechariah the Prophet supports that Day will be a day of darkness as a day of tribulation.
Zech 14:5-9: Thus the LORD my God will come, And all the saints with You. 6 It shall come to pass in that day That there will be no light....
He will come! The Middle East Nations are lining up as listed in our recent post: Midian, Arabia, Moab, Yemen, Edom, Bozrah, Seir, Ammon, Assyria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, Somalia, and others.
God's people will be taken and others not, explains Jesus.
Matt 24:39-44: So also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left....

The Lord is gathering a Great Army.

The Prophet Isaiah tells us the Lord of Hosts will come on the Day of the Lord with his people, his army for battle, to rid the land of sinners.
Isa 13:2-9: I have commanded My sanctified ones; I have also called My mighty ones for My anger— Those who rejoice in My exaltation. 4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, Like that of many people! A tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together! The LORD of hosts musters The army for battle....

Jesus forewarned his disciples, the sons of the kingdom will be separated from the sons of the evil one.
Matt 13:37-40: He answered and said to them: “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one....

The Day of the Lord will begin with a loud trumpet blast , sounding throughout the heavens. Throughout the Earth God's people will be gathered.
Matt 24:31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other....

With Glorified Bodies.

We will immediately change to glorified bodies, relates the Apostle Paul. Our glorified bodies will be like the body of Jesus after the Resurrection. It's physical, Mary hugged him outside the tomb. Yet, it's spiritual, he passed through the locked doors to the upper room, yet the disciples could touch his sacred wounds. His identity was as at first hidden from the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, but later he ate with them. On the beach, he started a fire and cooked breakfast for the apostles, and he walked with them.

1 Cor 15:51-55: Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality....

The word “rapture” is not used in other than a derivation of the Latin Scripture. Rather the Hebrew word means “caught up”. The people of God will be “caught up” in preparation for the coming battle and feast.
1 Thess 4:16-17 NKJ: For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. (All scriptures from the New King James Version.)

I love this Bill....I was talking of this with my best friend when we were discussing the news the other day...even so, come Lord Jesus! When the time is right, He will. Although many scoff at His coming...and many doubt, but there will be a day when all doubts will be erased for good. Thank you for these Scriptures, we need this hope now more than ever! Lori

God bless you richly in your writing....
In Jesus,
