More evidence of deception by rapture teachers.
Look at what Yeshua (Jesus) said below. He said several important things. One that would correct any secret coming all by itself, except when the deceiver can get you to TOTALLY make his point.. POINTLESS.! Let us look at Just a couple things
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Notice verses 20 and 22, where Yeshua is telling his disciples (that is us) to prepare for the great tribulation such as never has happened before and never will again after it… Folks that is the great tribulation.
** VERSE 23 says clear that the very ELECT will be here and for their sake, those days will be cut short or no flesh (as verse 22 says would survive) would survive.. Indicating that the elect will still be flesh, not immortal beings.. No resurrection has taken place..during the tribulation period.
Now notice the point of this post.. verses 24.-27 and in particular verse 27. The purpose of the false teachers is to go after the church to deceive them. They will not do so by saying we are Antichrists. It will be carefully done and with miracles until they have control.
NOW THE KEY… verse 27. I have heard deceivers say, Christ DID NOT SAY HE WILL NOT COME IN SECRET..only warned people not to believe he come in a SECRET chamber or secretly in a desert…. Now People it that is TRUE and Yeshua could have been saying he will come secretly some other way.. he would have made is words USELESS, because there are a 1,000 other secret places he could come;leaving the people without any knowledge of a 1,000 other secret ways deceivers could use.
INSTEAD of sitting and naming 1,000s of other possible secret ways he might come. He simply ENDED the whole idea that not only 2 places he will not come secretly BUT ANY …Because he says that his Coming will be like the lightening (Not lightning) That is like when the Sun rises and all eyes get to see it… In another scripture it says exactly that. That he is coming and EVERY EYE will see him..
THUS THERE CAN BE NO SECRET COMING TO RAPTURE his people.And by destroying what Yeshua (Jesus) plainly is saying, they take away the Key Yeshua gave his people NOT to be deceived about the matter.. Now they can come up with any secret thing. They even add another coming after their secret one.
SOME MISUNDERSTANDING USE TO BOLSTER THE ERROR.
Each one of these could be a post by themselves, but a summary pointing out serious errors in thinking and twisting of clear scripture should be enough to get some on the right track.
1…The Idea that Enoch was caught up into heaven as an example of the rapture- FALSE, Scripture says he was translated so that he would not see (observe death) Translated means to move from one place to another. The Apostle Paul says in Hebrews that he died.
2. The Idea that Elijah was taken to heaven as an example of the rapture… FALSE, Scripture says the people at the time though the whirl wind (twister) took him up and cast him on some mountain. He was moved to another place because he was tired, but later he sent a letter to a King Jehoram.
3. The Quote by Yeshua (Jesus) about as it was in the days of Noah was about the MINDSET of the people being like it was in the days of Noah, (Partying) carrying on with regular life) eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage…Until the FLOOD came and TOOK them all away… NOTICE, the ones TAKEN AWAY, were the bad people.. Not an example of the Rapture at all. The People were protected ON EARTH.. And the ones taken were killed.
4. Sodom is an example of how the world will be destroyed by fire, not altogether about the second coming.. Except that God is able to direct and protect his people ON EARTH.
Sodom and Gamorrah, Prophesy, Bible Prophesy, The Patriot Institute” width=”300″ height=”204″ class=”alignright size-medium wp-image-25197″ />
5. Likewise, Christians escaping the destruction of the temple and the setting up of a statue of Zeus in the Temple in (people say 70 AD), I think 68AD.. Is an example of believing Christ and saving your life by believing CHRIST and not errors… It also will be repeated in these last days. Some one like the Statue of Zeus will sit in the temple of God, sowing themselves to be God… and people in Jerusalem has better believe and GET OUT… nothing about rapture there.
6. Israel in Egypt:
(a) Moses and Aaron as a type of the 2 witnesses of the last days..
(b) Pharaoh a type of the devil
(c) Plagues a type of the punishment of the nations in the last days AFTER his people went through tribulation (slavery and death) first…. ALL (a) through (c) is TRUE
(D) God protected Israel who punishing the greatest nation on earth, so will it be this time
(E) After all the heavenly signs, they cross the Red Sea, a type of death and RESURRECTION… This is the analogy of what God will do.
Thus the concept of a secret coming, pre-tribulation rapture is foreign to the Bible.. The People of God from Able, to the prophets, to Christ himself, the Apostles, the people during the various inquisitions in history and even TODAY and particularly in other countries are suffering death for the name of Christ and just at the time we are about to get ready to go into the promised land, there are those saying that it is a land of Giants and we cannot do it, God must hide us.
These things only seem difficult to those indoctrinated already. people who are not have not been blinded by the lies that Satan is using to bring about a gigantic delusion, which God will allow since many Simply will not accept the clear truth and will do anything to try to make their favorite lie true. And as Long as they believe it, the Antichrist can take their side, and they will accept him and persecute those telling the truth as I clearly am;showing it straight from scripture..
Just like then many professing Christians will be not unlike sleeping virgins, whose carcasses will fall in the spiritual wilderness where Satan is trying to destroy them. But many of the young ones will believe the truth and God by TRUTH and DELUSION will make a separation of those who love the truth and those who do not.
