END OF DAYS
In the Gospel of Mark 24 YahShua said TO HIS DISCIPLES
(Vs. 3) that he that shall endure unto the end the same shall be saved (vs 13).
He said the end comes when WE SEE the abomination of desolation (Vs 14, 15).
He said pray that OUR flight not be on the SABBATH 7th DAY- He expected us to continue honoring the 7th Day as the true SABBATH DAY (Vs 20).
The first day is never refered to as the Sabbath, but rather is always called the first day of the week.
He said we are to FLEE –won’t be raptured (Vs 17, 18).
He said we are to flee. Why? Because of great tribulation –don’t expect to be taken out of tribulation (Vs 21).
The days are shortened because of the elect who are still on earth (Vs 22).
AFTER the TRIBULATION the Son of Man will come with a GREAT TRUMPET SHOUT- nothing secret about that!-
ALL SHALL SEE and the ELECT WILL BE GATHERED
(Vs 29-31). VERILY (means important) He says to us that this generation will NOT pass till ALL be FULFILLED (Vs 34).
He likened that day to Noah’s generation where the RIGHTEOUS were PROTECTED and it was the WICKED WHO WERE TAKEN (Vs 39) (Vs. 41).
That day is the same as His SECOND COMING.
Chapter 13 verse 30 says the WICKED, the tares are GATHERED FIRST!
Then the angels gather the righteous.
I Thessalonians 15-17 speaks of SECOND COMING not a rapture as taught.
HE will DESCEND WITH A SHOUT (not hidden) with a TRUMPET SOUND (day of Trumpets- Yom Teruah) at the LAST TRUMP (Revelations).
Chapter 5 verse 2 says the day comes as a thief to those who are UNPREPARED, but it will be LOUD and all will see.
Isaiah 26:20,21 says to hide during tribulation until it passes. Luke 21:36 and 24:29-31 says not to escape tribulation, BUT TO ESCAPE NOT BEING READY.
YahShua says in Luke 21 to His disciples that they must flee out of the city when they see Jerusalem compassed about, that they must not overreact… they shall see coming of Son of Man (Vs 27, 28), “Lift Up YOUR HEADS, YOUR REDEMTION DRAWETH NIGH.”
The following verses support that the false rapture teaching is referring actually to His Second Coming when at the loud TRUMPET SOUND the DEAD in Him (Why would they have to raise to escape the tribulation?) would rise and we which are ALIVE and REMAIN shall be caught up together with HIM in the air – like meeting someone at the airport and coming back with them- so we are going to come back and He is going to rule and reign!
Matthew 24:27, 40-42; 25:31; Luke 21:36; 12:40; Mark 13:21-27; Thes 4:15-17; I Corinthians 15:51-52; Isaiah 26:20-21; Revelation 3:10, 3:7, 19:11-14. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-77, 5:2, Luke 12:40, Mark 24:27,40-42, 21:36; I Peter 3:9.
