YHWH will make a full end of all the nations except YA'AKOV (Jacob). -Yirmeyahu(Jeremiah)46:28
We who are sealed with YHWH's mark will be saved from certain events during the tribulation. So we will be here during the tribulation. -Hazon(Revelation)9:4
The righteous will inherit the land and dwell therein forever and wait on YHWH and keep His way and see the wicked destroyed. -Tehillim(Psalm)37:29-34 -Mishley(Proverbs)10:30 -Luqas(Luke)17:27.
A rapture does not happen apart from Messiah's second coming. We who remain will be caught up in the air with the dead in Messiah and with Him at His second coming- after the loud TRUMPET of YHWH SOUNDS! We will meet Him to be with him forever. -Tas'loniqim 1(Thessalonians)4:14-17; Mattithyahu(Matthew)24:30-31
Messiah said that it would be as in Noah’s day and He also compared it to Lot's day. In their days who was left behind? The righteous were left behind to inherit the earth. Iniquity (which is lawlessness) will abound, the love of many will grow cold, but he that endures to the end will be saved. Then Messiah says, 'pray that your flight not be on the SABBATH DAY.' Messiah is speaking TO HIS PEOPLE WHO OBSERVE THE SABBATH DAY- they will be here during the tribulation. Yahshua goes on to say that for the ELECT's SAKE those days will be shortened. Lot was saved when it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and all were destroyed. -Mattithyahu 24; Luqas 17:24-31
The wicked are the ones taken out and destroyed throughout the Scriptures. "But may sinners vanish from the earth and the wicked be no more." -Tehillim 104:35
When does that happen? He gathers the elect AFTER the wicked perished. - Tas'loniqim 1 4:16,17
Messiah said "VERILY, THIS GENERATION WILL NOT PASS TILL ALL THESE THINGS BE FULFILLED". -Mattithyahu 24:35
When He comes and gathers us IT IS NOT A BIG SECRET- there will be a TRUMPET SHOUT and the VOICE OF AN ARCHANGEL and it will happen immediately AFTER the tribulation.
"For you BRETHREN are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. You are children of light..let us watch and be sober" -Tas'loniqim 1 5:4-6 That day will not come as a thief to us who guard our Father's Holy Days for His Holy Days are dress rehearsals preparing us for these exact events. YahShua said to His own to look up and see Him coming in the clouds that day. Blessed are they who ENDURE TO THE END for THEY SHALL BE SAVED.
"For if we believe that Yahshua died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Yahshua will YHWH bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Yahshua, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of Yahshua shall not prevent them which are asleep. For Yahshua himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of YHWH: and the dead in Messiah shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet Yahshua in the air: and so shall we ever be with Yahshua." Upon reading this in Tas'loniqim 4, let's ponder at least four questions.
Firstly, why would the dead in YahShua need to rise up to escape suffering in a tribulation? Answer: They don't need to escape the tribulation. It already happened. They will be raised to meet YahShua and we with them who remain at His second coming to rule and reign with Him.
Secondly, who is being caught up with the dead in Messiah? Answer: Those who remain. Remain from what? Those who remain from what they just went through. Just as the children of Israel had to go through the ten plagues, yet YHWH was with them. So too, the 'plagues' of the tribulation we will need to go through yet His mark will be on us. Some will be martyred for the Gospel's sake but a remnant will be saved. He allows His people to go through things to learn and to grow in character.
Thirdly, what is referred to as coming as a thief and to whom? Answer: The DAY will come as a thief to those who are not watching- but to the prepared it will not be as a thief. In fact when it does happen- ALL WILL SEE AND HEAR IT because the TRUMP WILL SOUND! -Mattithyahu 24:30 -Yeshayahu (Isaiah)18:3 -Tas'loniqim 1 4:16-17 -Hazon, Revelation 3:3.
Tas'loniqim 5 forthrightly says the day will not overtake the children of light as a thief because they are watching and sober. Who are the children of light? The Commandment and the Word are called the light. -Tehillim 119 Messiah followed them and calls Himself the Light of the world. -Yochanan(John)8:12 We are to let our light shine that men may see our good works and glorify our Father Who is in heaven. - Mattithyahu 5:16.
Fourthly, why will Messiah come with A SHOUT, and THE VOICE OF AN ARCHANGLE and THE TRUMP OF YHWH? Because He has been preparing us for this glorious hope by setting aside a wonderful appointed time-moed annually with us having great desire that we observe it to know that Messiah will appear on YOM TERUAH at the LAST TRUMP! There is nothing quiet or secret about Him appearing and our meeting Him in the air. There is no secret taking away or secret rapture.
Everyone who knows YHWH's appointed times will have been rehearsing already for this great and glorious event that is scheduled to happen on Yom Teruah- Day of Trumpets! Let us know our Father's appointed times that we may be ready to meet Him!
Notice also THE DAY is being referred as coming unexpected to those who are NOT watching - this is not referring to Messiah's coming which is accompanied with a loud shout! His coming will be after the TRUMPET SHOUT! A Day is for us as a reference point. Every 24 hours the day goes full circle to begin a new day.
'I will keep thee from the HOUR of temptation' means to save us from it, not take us from it. -Hazon 3:10
Our Heavenly Father gave us His calender with His Appointed Times so that as the goodman of the house and as the watchman on the wall we can be ready and prepared! Praise to His Name Forever! He will do nothing unless He lets us know first!
Hazon speaks of hearts growing cold. Could it be that the ones who were told that the saved would not have to go through the difficult times of the tribulation are the ones referred to here? Many are taught that they get to escape the time ahead if they are saved. No where in scripture is this taught. In fact, repeatedly the WORD says believers ENDURE to the end. Once they find out that the Father has us walk through tough times which is how it has been all through history then they will be confused, hurt and angry and may give up on their faith then iniquity abounds as Messiah said it would.
The BLESSED HOPE is not the rapture as taught, rather it is the KINGDOM OF YHWH (Qolasim, Colossians 1:5) when Yahshua returns (Titos, Titus 2:13) and we receive the inheritance incorruptible in heaven (Kepha 1, 1 Peter 1:4).
Remember it is the wicked who are gathered first and cast into the fire and then the righteous shine in the kingdom of YHWH. "Gather you first the tares (the wicked)". -Mattithyahu 13:30, 36-43.The angels will gather those who do iniquity. What is iniquity? It is lawlessness. Transgression of the law is sin according to Yochanan 1(1 John) 3:4 defines it.
His coming is at the LAST TRUMP which is on the Appointed Time Calender of YHWH called the Yom Teruah, DAY OF TRUMPETS which happens on the first day of the seventh biblical month of Tishrei. Notice that Day of Trumpets, Yom Teruah, happens on Rosh Chodesh, a New Moon Day. Two events that we are admonished to look for and be ready for happening in one day. The trumpet is sounded at different times on this day and the last time is called THE LAST TRUMP which in Qorin'tiyim 1 (1 Corinthians)15:51-52 refers to His coming and in Hazon 10.
"No man knows the day or the hour" is a Hebraic idiom expressly referring to THE DAY OF TRUMPETS because this appointed time that we have with the Father occurs on Rosh Chodesh a New Moon Day.
A new moon day is not known exactly when it will happen so it is celebrated for 2 days. A new moon day occurs when the crescent appears to mark the beginning of a new month. Hanoch (Enoch) 78:12
The righteous will never be removed! The wicked shall never inherit the earth! "As the whirlwind passeth so is the wicked no more, but the righteous is an everlasting foundation." -Mishley (Proverbs)10:25,30
"For the upright shall dwell in the land and the perfect shall remain it. But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth and the transgressor shall be rooted out of it." -Mishley 2:21,22
He has revealed Himself to a people who do not know Him. That is us. Do we want to know Him? And WE CRY YES! ABBA! WE DESIRE TO KNOW YOU!
"The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell therein forever." We are admonished to wait on YHWH and keep His way- YAHSHUA IS THE WAY! The way to where? YAHSUA IS THE WAY TO THE FATHER! How? He kept His Father's ways from a right heart! -Tehillim 37:29, 34
Here again YHWH's Appointed Times, His Feast Days are shown to have great significance to our lives as believers!
Shalom! Unbroken wholeness!
