Rapture

“Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”-1 Thessalonians 4:17 (KJV)


caught up: G726 ἁρπάζω (harpazó) 14 Occurrences

harpagēsometha: ἁρπαγησόμεθα (will be caught away)

Rapture: from Rapere, The Latin Vulgate — Rapiemur


“But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 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: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” –context (cf.2 Thessalonians 2:3-7; 1 Corinthians 15:52)

I believe Jesus will return for His Bride [the Church]. Those who are alive will be caught up in a twinkling of an eye at the last trump. In short, I’m a Pre-tribulation Dispensationalist. But, I didn’t write this to persuade anyone of anything.

There has been a lot of noise lately from the Date Setters as to Tishrei (Tishri) 5783 (September 26 2022). I’m not giving credence to date setting. The teaching led down some interesting rabbit holes. I enjoyed learning about Jewish costumes, faith and practice. The 7 feasts, as celebrated, are quit interesting. While enjoying the Rabbit trails I’m not buying this teaching, date setting aside. They get to Tishrei by way of last trump of Feast of Trumpets (cf. Leviticus 23; Numbers 29). They get to 2022 by two paths one is 3 day theory (3000 years) and the second is the 80 year theory. In upcoming posts I will unpack this and discus the trumpet of the Lord, the last trump and the Olivet Discourse.

Blessings,
