A million plus Hebrews came out of Egypt but only two that were of the age of twenty years old was saved. The people that G_D brought out of Egypt, many were overthrown in the wilderness. Israel spent 38 years wandering around on an 11 day journey. If they would have EXCEPTED YHWH words on FAITH, they would have entered the promise land 38 years earlier and appropriated what G_D had for them. Question: “What will happen with the Church at the Coming of THE LORD? Will you be accounted as righteous for believing what YESHUA/JESUS said, or will you be condemned for believing what men have said and quoted as scripture? Apostasy is in full sway over the people who claim to know and follow Yeshua HaMashiach. Unlike many who are looking for some grand entry of the heralded Apostate Church, I submit to you that it has been here for many decades in form and function, deceiving, distorting, and giving power to a fictional narrative which states, “ All true believers will be taken (Raptured) away off the earth to get away from the tribulation. The Kadosh (Holy) writings of the Living Word reveals the truth and not this made up lie, that could only have come from the devil. My reason for this statement is, “It stands in direct contradiction to what OUR LORD spoke and revealed about this subject. Like the Hebrews who came out of captivity in Egypt who were fearful, this fictional story of a rapture is an attempt to calm the fears of the church goers concerning the coming 7 year punishment and Awesome and Fearful Power of Our Lord which will directed at the nations, followers of the Beast and False Prophet. Which brings me to where I think we should start the discussion.
I have heard preached across the earth that the Old Testament was for us a Type and Shadow of the New Testament (Better Covenant or Promise). I believe this to be a true statement due to the evidence and confirmation that it provides to the Better Covenant. Examples like the action of Abraham sacrificing his son Isaac and in the Better Covenant, Avinu (Our Father) YHVH sacrificing YESHUA his son. And as Paul says,
1 Corinthians 10:11 King James Version (KJV) 11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
WHY THE RAPTURE AND WHERE DID IT COME FROM?
Matthew 13:14-15 Complete Jewish Bible ‘You will keep on hearing but never understand, and keep on seeing but never perceive, 15 because the heart of this people has become dull —with their ears they barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, so as not to see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their heart, and do t’shuvah, so that I could heal them.’
Like the Hebrews coming out of Egypt, the contemporary church make a 40 year wandering of an 11 day journey where the scriptures are concerned. Instead of taking what The CREATOR has spoken, demonstrated, and revealed on faith, we would rather take the words and commentary of men who followed after YESHUA centuries later. They may have been prominent, respected, scholarly, church clergy, but non the less the words that were spoken by YESHUA is who I BELIEVE is the AUTHORITY! As for me and my house, I will believe and follow what The Lord revealed as the Truth! End of story! This apostasy has been, and still is promoted today even over what the LORD OUR G_D commanded and revealed. Truly I tell you, that even the Pagan ceremonies and traditions that the church is steeped in, if looked at through YHVH commandments and YESHUA’s way of honoring G_D, one can only conclude, the western idea of the Judean Based church of Our Lord that we the gentiles were grafted into is not being practiced. Indeed, this strange creature incorporating ancient Pagan Rituals are forbidden by G_D and The Mashiach. This is why I have chosen Matthew Chapter 13 as the foundation and starting point for this posting. I believe YESHUA (Jesus)! Period! If any teaching or preaching is in opposition to what THE LORD has spoken, it is from the devil and is a false doctrine promoted by devils and demons.
Where did this “Rapture” heresy of the church first introduce itself to the people who claim to follow The CHRIST? The “Rapture Doctrine” is a recently (new) doctrine that the church adopted around 1830 and was introduced by John Nelson Darby. Before this period this idea was to some first century believers such as Irenaeus (130 A.D. – 202 AD), Cyprian (200 AD – 258 AD), and Ephraim the Syrian (306 AD – 373 AD). Then centuries later Darby’s pre-tribulational view of the rapture was picked up by a man named C.I. Scofield, who taught the view in the footnotes of his Scofield Reference Bible, which was widely distributed in England and America. These men, influenced by powers and principalities, did not have the hearts to understanding that they should have FEARED WITH GREAT TREMBLING, ANY TAMPERING WITH THE WORD OF G_D! It would lead their contemporaries and future generations to believe a lie. Darby and Scofield, like many in the clergy today are described in Matthew 13:18-19
Matthew 13:18-19Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 18 “So listen to what the parable of the sower means. 19 Whoever hears the message about the Kingdom, but doesn’t understand it, is like the seed sown along the path — the Evil One comes and seizes what was sown in his heart
Lets also remember what Peter admonished and warned about interpreting prophesy.
2 Peter 1:20-21Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 20 First of all, understand this: no prophecy of Scripture is to be interpreted by an individual on his own; 21 for never has a prophecy come as a result of human willing — on the contrary, people moved by the Ruach HaKodesh spoke a message from God.
Both Darby and Scofield did the very thing that Peter is warning not to do. To make an intellectual assumption of prophecy and not one that is declared by the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). Darby and Scofield claimed that the “day of Christ” refers to the rapture and that “the day of the Lord” refers to the actual second coming several years after the rapture. Where did the thought for this come from? When the Ruach HaKodesh imparts something from the Throne Room of Heaven they should have proclaimed this doctrine as such. They did not. The Western Church under the Control of the Roman Catholic empire and other denominations have allowed Pagan practices into the Church. If then, the Church has allowed these things which are NOT of ADONAI ELOHEMU (LORD OUR G_D), then why would I, or anybody else believe in the rapture? Hence, the title of this blog. For argument sake, lets say that what they introduced as doctrinal is true. Then it requires that we dis-regard everything that “Mashiach Yeshua” taught us about HIS return. Such as Matthew 13:24-30 “The parables of the Tares and Wheat”. Every time I hear a preacher try and preach this part of Matthew, I can’t help but to watch them squirm when they get to the last part of the scripture verse 30. As for me, I believe what YESHUA has said and demonstrated in HIS own Words. Lets just read it.
Matthew 13:24-30Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 24 Yeshua put before them another parable. “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while people were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, then went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads of grain, the weeds also appeared. 27 The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where have the weeds come from?’ 28 He answered, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants asked him, ‘Then do you want us to go and pull them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, because if you pull up the weeds, you might uproot some of the wheat at the same time. 30 Let them both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest-time I will tell the reapers to collect the weeds first and tie them in bundles to be burned, but to gather the wheat into my barn.’”
Notice that the servant asked the owner, “Do you want us to go and pull them up”? Here, the Lord is clearly saying that the evil ones planted in the earth by the devil will be removed from the earth and burned for eternity. Preachers and pastors don’t even mention verse 30, or at the very least they gloss right over it with never any mention that it decimates the raptures false teachings of the man-handled church. This teaching is causing all kinds of damage to the seeker of truth. Being based in fear, this Rapture concept gives comfort to the un seeing that “We won’t be here during this Awesome Time where the Powers of Heaven will be witnessed by all. This could lead to many in the Church blindly missing many milestones of end times events. For example they might think that the rapture hasn’t happened yet, so this couldn’t possibly be the Mark of the Beast. Or, “This man is for the peace of mankind and he is so charismatic, well spoken and is doing so much good, that I’ll just follow him”. Being on the Earth during this time may instill fear that we (the faithful) might get punished right along with sinners during the Fearful and Terrible Day of The LORD. What YHVH is going to do to the earth in the tribulation period will effect the righteous of THE LORD only in as much as we will witness these events ourselves. And yes, many Christians will continue to die in the faith, as it always has been since YESHUA went to the cross. We have beheadings happening in the world currently, and as Mashiach (Messiah) stated about the Jews in John 16:2, applies to all followers of the faith today.
The Hebrews that lived in Egypt witnessed the terrible and awesome punishment to that world power. They were protected from ADONAI’s punishment of Egypt, as we will be. This doesn’t mean that the Devil will not come against what is G_D’s righteousness (Believers). Remember that Christ said, “He who endures to the end, shall be saved”. We were not made for The LORDs Wrath! This is revealed to us in verse 29 of chapter 13, where YESHUA makes it perfectly clear that he will protect us and not allow harm to HIS true followers. G_D’s wrath is not for us, but for sinners in the earth. Read 1 Thess. 5:9, 2 Corinthians 1:21-22, Ephesians 1:12-14 and as an example of how we are protected Revelation 7:3. Noting that Rev. 7:3 is the Jews being sealed. These are the ones who will come to recognize Yeshua as their G_D and are converted to believe by the Power of G_D. We have already excepted The LORD for who HE is and WHAT HE has Done at the CROSS.
If I were to base what YESHUA is saying in Matthew 13:30 on this one scripture, I would be correct. However, there’s more! Yeshua himself, explains to the disciples this end time event in verses 36-43 of Matthew 13. Plain and understandable! Let’s look at it for ourselves.
Matthew 13:36-43Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 36 Then he left the crowds and went into the house. His talmidim approached him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.” 37 He answered, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man; 38 the field is the world. As for the good seed, these are the people who belong to the Kingdom; and the weeds are the people who belong to the Evil One. 39 The enemy who sows them is the Adversary, the harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. 40 Just as the weeds are collected and burned up in the fire, so will it be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send forth his angels, and they will collect out of his Kingdom all the things that cause people to sin and all the people who are far from Torah; 42 and they will throw them into the fiery furnace, where people will wail and grind their teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine forth like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let him hear!
There are 3 things that are very important in showing the false rapture doctrine. First, FEAR NOT PEOPLE OF G-D! We are the good seed that is not destroyed by THE LORD when this event takes place. The Angels of the LORD know that we are HIS (at least you better know that you are His) They recognize the SEAL of G_D on us, which is the Ruach HaKodesh! Rejoice people of THE LORD! REJOICE! Secondly, notice verse 41 where the LORD makes reference “Out of His Kingdom. This indicates that it is already His, sense He created The Heavens and the Earth by His Power and Word. And thirdly, “the Kingdom of their Father” AVINU (Our Father) ADONAI. Heaven is where Our Father is at. Excess will be ours both in the earth and in Heaven. The Rapture doctrine states that believers will be whisked off the planet to live in heaven. How can this be? In The Book of Revelation Chapter 16 :12-16 tells us that we are still here through the entire tribulation period and “HIS Second Coming”. Verse 15 clearly indicates that we are still here! And this is after the Wrath of G_D has been poured out.
Revelation 16:12-16Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 12 The sixth one poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water dried up, in order to prepare the way for the kings from the east. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits that looked like frogs; they came from the mouth of the dragon, from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are miracle-working demonic spirits which go out to the kings of the whole inhabited world to assemble them for the War of the Great Day of Adonai-Tzva’ot. 15 (“Look! I am coming like a thief! How blessed are those who stay alert and keep their clothes clean, so that they won’t be walking naked and be publicly put to shame!”) 16 And they gathered the kings to the place which in Hebrew is called Har Megiddo.
In the Kingdom of Our Father, We will have free access to Heaven and Earth. Heaven because of His GLORY and the place prepared for us by Yeshua, and in the Kingdom on Earth when we rule and reign with him in His Kingdom on the Earth from Jerusalem. The western church has totally forgotten why the Jews called Jesus King when he enter Jerusalem in John 12. The Jews were looking for Jesus to take HIS place on the Throne of David. His kingdom, is the world! He will rule it, as it is written, with an “Rod of Iron”, and we who are the “Wheat” in this parable will rule with him! Verse 49 goes on to say:
Matthew 13:49-50 Complete Jewish Bible 49 So it will be at the close of the age — the angels will go forth and separate the evil people from among the righteous 50 and throw them into the fiery furnace, where they will wail and grind their teeth.
Again we witness YESHUA’s statement of Truth! If we are supposed to be Raptured away somewhere, why is Yeshua making this statement, “ And separate the evil people from among the righteous”? The righteous are still here to witness the Power and Glory of Adonai on the nations of the world. The nations who has stood against HIM at every turn. Just witness the worlds’ actions against Israel when she try’s to protect her citizenry against barbarians. In addition, Revelations 14:14-15 speaks to the earth being Harvested just as Christ explains below. Here is another thought process that rapture believers reason to be evidence that it will occur as they say.
The most common reason for their argument has to do with Matthew 24:39-41 which states:
Matthew 24:39-44 Complete Jewish Bible 39 and they didn’t know what was happening until the Flood came and swept them all away. It will be just like that when the Son of Man comes. 40 Then there will be two men in a field — one will be taken and the other left behind. 41 There will be two women grinding flour at the mill — one will be taken and the other left behind. 42 So stay alert, because you don’t know on what day your Lord will come.
This passage is not contradicting Matthew 13, but is in fact congruent with all that YESHUA gives as parables in this chapter. For example verse 40 speaks of “one will be taken and the other left behind”. This is exactly what Yeshua said would happen when HE sends forth HIS angels to collect out of HIS Kingdom Sinners and things that cause men to sin.
ADONAI HAS PROVIDED AN EXAMPLE AND SHADOW OF THE TRIBULATION
The example is in “The Book of Exodus starting in Chapter 7 where G_D gives orders to Moshe and Aharon to go to Pharaoh and demand that He is to let the Hebrews go. I can’t speak for anyone else, but an audience with the Holy, Holy, Holy, G_D of Yisrael is no little thing and would scare the life out of anybody. I love it when I hear people casually say that they know G_D. Our puny human minds are allowed by THE LORD, to grasp a little light about who HE is, and our relationship with HIM. Read “The Book of Enoch” and you will get some clue as to how Awesomely Frightful, and Fearsome is HIS presence. I’m sure the Real Moshe and not Charleston Heston understood this very well.
Exodus 7:1-3 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)7 But Adonai said to Moshe, “I have put you in the place of God to Pharaoh, and Aharon your brother will be your prophet. 2 You are to say everything I order you, and Aharon your brother is to speak to Pharaoh and tell him to let the people of Isra’el leave his land.3 But I will make him hardhearted.
Another reason ‘The LORD’s People’ should not fear the coming Tribulation , is that it is the Lord who will be punishing the people for following after the Beast and False Prophet. Pharaoh is a type of Man of Sin or Anti-Christ and his magicians, and sorcerers are a type of False prophet conjuring miracles from the devil himself. This is exactly what is written in “The Book of Revelation” about end-times followers. Like Pharaoh, the anti-Christ will be persecuting the saints of G_D and will bring great trouble to the nations by Destruction, Lawlessness, and Disdain for what is righteous before Heaven. Verse 3 should bring comfort to the Soul, because it shows who has all Power! Exodus 7:8
Exodus 7:8-12 Complete Jewish Bible 8 Adonai said to Moshe and Aharon, 9 “When Pharaoh says to you, ‘Perform a miracle,’ tell Aharon to take his staff and throw it down in front of Pharaoh, so that it can become a snake.” 10 Moshe and Aharon went in to Pharaoh and did this, as Adonai had ordered — Aharon threw down his staff in front of Pharaoh and his servants, and it turned into a snake. 11 But Pharaoh in turn called for the sages and sorcerers; and they too, the magicians of Egypt, did the same thing, making use of their secret arts. 12 Each one threw his staff down, and they turned into snakes. But Aharon’s staff swallowed up theirs.
Yeshua’s Power and Authority created everything seen and unseen, so why wouldn’t HE control everything. Question: Why would “The LORD” provide a safe place for the Hebrews and not for all of us under the New Covenant? Is not the Old Testament meant for an example of the knowledge of what Avinu (Our Father) expects from His people. Isn’t it to reveal how He thinks and feels about his people, and to layout the good path by HIS commands and decrees so that we will have some knowledge of HIS love for us? I have heard all my life from preachers everywhere that the Old Testament is a Shadow Type for the New Covenant which is Better. Well if they really believe that it is better, then why wouldn’t they believe that the LORD will provide protection during this Great Tribulation period. Did HE not save Noah when their was not a Christ believing Church around? If anything when the wraith of G_D is poured out on the Nations, you and I will have a more perfect Reverence for HIM in our praise and worship! Apostate’s will not and cannot be protected from what is coming.
Exodus 8:21-24King James Version (KJV) 21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are. 22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth. 23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.
24 And the Lord did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.
The land of Goshen in our time is the Seal of G_D that a true follower of Yeshua is suppose to have. As we can clearly see in verse 22 Avir Ya’akov (Mighty One of Jacob) not only commands HIS peoples protection, but also separates us (Again) from that which is about to come into direct contact with HIS fearsome power. This should bring great comfort to the believer, and terror to the apostate and to the ones who reject HIM. How do you get this seal of protection? You must be born again by The Spirit (The Ruach HaKodesh), baptized in the Spirit, and lead by the Spirit, in order to have the Seal of G_D! The Spirit of G_D is truth. Question: Is a preacher called or anointed to preach the Gospel of Truth by Man, or By Adonai? Can a man, church or nation change the works of G_D, or HIS Holy words called the Bible? Revelation 22:19 gives the answer. If HaMelekh Yisrael (The King of Israel) has not Anointed one to preach, how then can he lead by the spirit of G_D, when He was not called by G_D? This is the problem to day with a great many congregations. INTELLECTUAL PREACHERS who depend on their seminary school, cookie cutter back ground and not the Ruach HaKodesh. Preachers afraid to step out on faith of God’s word, with very little evidence of signs and wonders that would convert people to the true faith in YESHUA HAMASHIACH!
This concludes Part I of DOCTRINE OF THE RAPTURE DENY’S WHAT YESHUA SAID ABOUT “HIS KINGDOM”! Here is a Messianic Worship Song
