The REAL TRUTH About "The Rapture?"

 RAPTURE? - The Gathering and The Taken

ALL Saints, that are alive during the appointed time will go through the Great Tribulation.

Great Tribulation: Rev. 13:7-10

7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

8And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

9If any man have an ear, let him hear.

10He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Wrath of God and the Lamb: 

Revelation 18:1-4 (KJV)

1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Revelation 6:15-17 (KJV)

15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

So WE the Saints, WILL go through the Great Tribulation, but NOT the WRATH of God.

The Post-Great Tribulation, Gathering of the Saints, ALL of the Saints, even the 1st Resurrected will be Gathered. The 1st Resurrection are those who LIVE in Christ, Saved and are Children of God.

1 Thessalonians 4:16 (KJV)
 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and {the dead in Christ shall rise first:}

Side note: The 2nd Resurrection are those who will be Judged, based on their works.

Revelation 20:12-13 (KJV)
"And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works."

How will Saints be Protected from the Wrath of God and the Lamb?

As in the Days of Noah:

Luke 17:26-27 (KJV)
 "And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all."

In Matthew 24:40-41 - "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."

Luke 17:36-37 (KJV) expand on it:
"Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 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."

Yeshua refers to this as memory for those who read the Scriptures:

Jeremiah 16:4
They shall die of grievous deaths; they shall not be lamented; neither shall they be buried; but they shall be as dung upon the face of the earth: and they shall be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and their carcases shall be meat for the fowls of heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.

In Rev 19 it is confirmed:

Revelation 19:17-18 (KJV)

 17 - And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
 18 -That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

As the Days of Noah:

Matthew 24:37-39 (KJV)

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 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,

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Luke 17:26-27

26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

New Jerusalem ~ the Modern Day Noah's Ark:

Yeshua prophesied, it will be like the "Times of Noah", all will be executed, except for the saints who are alive and those of the 1st Resurrection who will be ushered and paraded in front of the eyes of the wicked into the new "ark", New Jerusalem. The "ark of Noah" being the analogy of New Jerusalem. 

Matthew 13:49-51 (KJV)
"So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord."

The Victory Parade of the Saints ~

Luke 13:28-29 (KJV)
28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

Isaiah 35:8 (KJV)
"And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein."

Highlights of Isaiah 11:10-16 (Please read the prophecy in whole of the chapter in context)

Verses 10 - 11 "And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people"

Verses 15 -16 "And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod. And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt."

Isaiah 27:12-13 
"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall beat off from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem."

John 14:1-4  (KJV) 

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 

2 In my Father's house are many mansions {translation: rooms}: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  

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.  

4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Understand this: The People who are taken are the dead, to be fed to the fowls of the heaven and beast of the Earth.

There are only two groups - Saints and the Wicked

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 are for the Saints.

Luke 17:36-37 & Matthew 24:37-42 are for the Wicked

If you are not gathered after the Great Tribulation to New Jerusalem, you are not a Saint, nor a TRUE Christian, saying "LORD, LORD".

Here is Truth, Understanding and Hope in Christ in the Scripture of Psalms:

Psalm 107:1-8 

1 O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.

4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

6 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.

8 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

There are many more Scriptures that ring Truth to the Days of Tribulation, The Days of the Gathering and The Days of Wrath unto 1000 years of Peace leading into Eternity as Children of YHWH.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, keep the Faith, knowing the Truth.
