Please note, that the word RAPTURE, is not an English Word. Therefore, that word does not appear in English Bibles. BUT that NON ENGLISH word, DOES appear in Latin wordings. You should never deny this, because this word DOES EXIST, and was used – in older Bible writings.
This is why, we now use these words, because the very best Bible writers used it. They used it, to discuss the very last 7 years on Earth.

My Rapture and End Times Stance.
Next Pages, after this Page 432, can be found – within Pages 4 6 6 and 4 6 7.
First the Sky is reduced, to a Scroll, to open the Glory of Heaven: Revelation 6: 1 2 – 1 6.
This then makes way, for the rapture of Believers, in a Twinkling of an Eye: Revelation 7: 9.
Edited 1 4th November 2 0 1 4
I had to completely change this article, as it used to contain some incorrect writings, about the Rapture etc. I now have a much clearer understanding, of the Rapture, since 2 0 1 4. Please now measure this whole article, since 2 0 1 4.
The Purpose of this Blog, as described on my introduction, is to Inform and Edify believers – regarding current Watchman Issues. They should not get caught up, in speculating, on what may/may not happen – in the future. This is related, to your interpretation, of Biblical Eschatology. That is, End Times Teachings.
If Prophecies are being Fulfilled, in front of our Own Eyes, and Events are Affecting us (here and now) – in the Present, then this Blog may well inform about this, and seek to Tackle the Issues.
However, I will not get into Debates, trying to uphold my Own Personal – unimportant Thoughts. I will actually, focus much more, on the very serious REAL truths. There is much more information, now available, which reveals the Real Total Truth – much better now. These I will now Focus on.
There are 3 Parts of Teaching, that we have to be more careful, about discussing. My Personal Stance (I believe), is the one, which makes most sense – according to the scriptures. My 3 Major Parts of Teaching, to be careful on, are these:
Major Teaching 1: The scriptures teach us, to not get caught up, in Vain Speculations. We should focus only on doing, What We Know, we Should be Doing Now.
Major Teaching 2: These Uncertain Discussions, produce Strife and Heated Arguments. Paul told Timothy, that God’s servant should not be like that, but should now – Stick to Good/Known Correct Teaching.
Major Teaching 3: We need to be Careful, how we spend our time now. We should not spend time, on Subjects, not Vital for our Christian lives NOW.
We need to Guard the Time, that God gives us, to be Focused on the Truth. The TRUTH is the Purpose of this Blog. This Blog tries to prevent us, from getting side tracked, by Bad/Long needless discussions.
Though this Blog, will mention Eschatology at times, because an article may need to refer to it – it does not intend to get into debate, over THAT issue. This Blog, will try to stick to the point, of the article in question. Paul told Timothy, that leaders should not get caught up, in Controversial Teachings.
This Blog, will definitely contend for the Faith, using Vital Teachings. However, some Teachings are weaker, and not actually Scriptural. These BAD Teachings, should not interfere, with our walk and unity with Christ.
My stance is always, of this teaching: “Let’s Focus on Preaching the Good news, as revealed in the Bible, and Implore people to be Reconciled to Christ – rather than them getting wrongly caught up, in the non essential Peripherals”.
Our response, should be the same as this, whether we are:
– Pre Tribulation
– Mid Tribulation
– Post Tribulation Etc.
Our response, is to be ready now, for the return of Jesus – and for doing the work of the Kingdom, NOW. The work should be:
– Preaching the Gospel
– Watching and Praying
– Exposing Heresy of Fundamental Truth
– Upholding the Bible, as the Inspired Word of God
– Being Obedient to God, Living Holy Lives, Dedicated to Jesus.
The Main Teaching, which is applicable to every Christian, and is fundamental to our Faith – is that Jesus WILL return, and deliver us all. He will deliver us from evil, once and for all time, to live in His Glorious Kingdom – Forever. Hallelujah!!!
Having said all these things, I will give you my Present Position, on the Rapture – and on the End Times. I will Explain, Why my decided position, is very Heavily drawn to Pre-Tribulation – because of amazing PROOF.
I give my Present Stance, on the Rapture, and on the last 7 years – of the End Times, and show why Post Trib Views, are totally False and Unbiblical.
The incorrect, Post Tribulation Rapture adherents (known as Post-Tribulation), point to Matthew 2 4: 3 1 – to say that there is One Rapture, and it comes AFTER the Tribulation.
Pre-Tribulation Rapture adherents (Pre Trib), say, that Post-Trib cannot be the case – because other scriptures, like Revelation 7 and Thessalonians, imply a Rapture BEFORE the Tribulation.
There cannot be an After Tribulation. Interpretations are decided upon correctly, by examining the Truth of the Bible, properly. I say that we should open our minds, and hearts, to the truth of the Bible – and not ignore any scriptures, but we must compare Scripture with Scripture, PROPERLY.
I am someone, who is prepared to change his thinking, properly and lovingly – if I am proved incorrect. I want to allow the Holy Spirit, to teach the Scriptures to me Properly.
I now have to accept, that there are some people, who are not opening their minds to God properly. They prefer some people, to get confused, and wrong footed – by badly accepting lies, and proved untruths.
There seems to be problems, with views of Post and Pre Tribulation. These wrong views, are not through correct studying though. We need to actually read properly. We should now find, that actually, there should be no contradiction.
The TRUTH is actually, VERY CLEAR. As stated, the problem must be, with how people wrongly apply a Bible interpretation – because the Bible says, “All scripture, is inspired by God”. It is fully trustworthy.
Why I am Pre-Tribulation!
Please now seriously become aware, of these next passages, which surely prove – that all TRUE Christians at the 7 year start, will not be left on Earth any longer, after these days start. They will already be taken to Heaven. You now need to realise, how Wonderful and GLORIOUS Heaven will be, with Christians there. Also, how terrible Earth will become, without Christians.
The Post Tribulation Believer, wrongly uses JUST Matthew 2 4 verses 2 7 to 3 1, and Revelation 7: 1 4 – to “Wrongly State”, that the Rapture occurs, AFTER the 7 years Tribulation, are completed on Earth by the Christians. Why do they believe in such nonsense?
Actually the verse in Matthew 2 4: 3 1, is not referring to the Rapture of the Church, because he is no longer referring to the Christian church. It is actually now starting, in its referring to an “Elect” time, after the church has been taken, of the NEW JEWISH People.
It is no longer, referring to Christians. The new word “Elect” always ONLY refers to the New Jewish People. This Jewish remnant, will be at the start of the 7 years, after Christians have already been taken to Heaven. Please read: Revelation 1 4: 1
Jesus is saying, that it is THE ANGELS, who gather the 1 4 4,0 0 0 sealed Jewish remnant – near the end of the seven years, to a place of Protection. That is after, the Christian Church has already been taken to Heaven.
This will be a time, Prepared for the New Jewish Believers in Jesus, in the wilderness of Israel – so that they can receive their Messiah Jesus.
Revelation 7: 3 – 8. This explains, that the start of the 7 years, leading up to the 1 4 4,0 0 0 Jewish believers in Jesus being saved – will not start, until the Jews first start believing, during the last 7 years. The Christian church, will already be taken to Heaven, before this starts.
We are also informed, about the mixture of Jewish people being saved, at that time. That is 1 2 Jewish Tribes, multiplied by 1 2,0 0 0 equals 1 4 4,0 0 0. The second half of these 7 years, will not start, until a massive number of other Jewish people – start believing in, and following the Messiah Jesus.
But just before they do believe, they ARE sealed for Protection, as the Latter Believers – TO BECOME the Jewish remnant. Their LATTER trust in Jesus, will probably be first triggered, by the 7 year Rapture of Christians to Heaven.
First, there will be a change, in the new Christian beliefs – of the very powerful NEW Jewish Christians. This will be from 1 4 4,0 0 0 Jews. They will be the first ones, receiving Jesus into their hearts.
These 1 4 4,0 0 0, are not yet related (until later), to the VERY LAST 3 years Salvation – of a FULL THIRD of all Jews. In Revelation 7, we are then told about a countless multitude, of Jewish Believers, gathered together. They were also Raptured, out of the Great Tribulation.
This was possibly, before the Satanic evil could start, on the God haters. This is clear, when we consider the chapters, after Revelation 7. Then, and only then, did discussions start – on the Great Tribulation (after the lesser Tribulation started), and the judgements of God.
I now clarify, the order of events, in a shorter way. The chapters before 7, were just increasing the Tempo, and setting the scene – for the RAPTURE. The First Rapture, was of the Christian Church. It is discussed in Revelation 5. The Tribulation started in Revelation 6, and the start of Jewish people being Saved, started in Revelation 7.
In Revelation, there had been a gradual increase, in intensity. It had these: Wars, Famine, Persecution etc
This is Just like what we were experiencing, in our recent year of 2 0 1 4. Especially it is now, and much more so, with increasing types/numbers suffering – since 2 0 2 0 to 2 0 2 2. These recent sufferings, have been since about 2 0 1 8 to now 2 0 2 2. This is just the beginning, of the Birth Pang sufferings, as Jesus described.
Before the Rapture, we read of the Martyrs, being told to wait a little longer – presumably until the Rapture starts. The Martyrs, are not yet in the throne room.
1 Thessalonians 4: 1 5 – 1 7.
This is similar, to the days we are now living in, where there will soon be a sudden increase – in believers being martyred, for their Faith. The Apostle Paul said: “Those who desire, to live Godly lives in Christ Jesus, WILL suffer Tribulation”. There is now an increase in suffering, but it is not the Lessor Tribulation, or the GREAT Tribulation YET.
This Rapture and TRIBULATION cannot begin, while Christians are still on the Earth. This Lesser and Great Tribulation, can only start (lasting 7 years), once Christians have been taken to Heaven. The most serious sufferings, will be, AFTER the Rapture.
The probability is, that there will initially be, the first left behind – non believers in Jesus, who will later, be the first ones, to put their trust in Jesus. They will avoid death. These Jewish people, will be temporarily left behind on Earth, after a Pre Tribulation Rapture – when non Jewish Christian believers, are taken to Heaven.
The later Israeli believers, who are left behind, will also later be gathered to heaven – with the 1 4 4,0 0 0. This will be, just before the Final Return of Jesus, to the Earth – 7 years later. The more later Jewish believers in Jesus, will be gathered together, to a place of security on Earth. This will be, in a wilderness area in Israel.
Those who are later put to death, during the Great Tribulation, will be raised again – as resurrected, after the Second Coming, to participate in the 1 0 0 0 years. Please read Rev 2 0: 4.
There are also Scriptures, which discuss our recent 4 sided Solar Eclipse, and Subsequent Blood Moons – BEFORE the Great Tribulation. This is probably the ones, which were very recently experienced, in our very recent years of 2 0 1 4 and 2 0 1 5? Joel 2, and Acts. How serious was it, at that time?
