A reader recently mentioned the idea of a “mid-trib rapture”. Honestly, according to Scripture, there is no such thing as "pre-trib” or “mid-trib rapture” – or even a "seven year tribulation." From what I can tell, that seven-year period mentioned in Daniel is the period after the peace treaty is signed with Israel.
According to the Scriptures Yeshua will return exactly seven years after the Antichrist (whoever that turns out to be) signs a seven-year treaty with Israel. In the meantime, we are and will continue to experience "tribulations" around the world. The disasters are coming faster and faster. The Bible tells us that, in the end times, there will be so many that we can't even recover from one disaster before the next one hits....
Daniel 9: 26 Then, after the sixty-two weeks, Mashiach will be cut off and have nothing. The people of a prince yet to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary, but his end will come with a flood, and desolations are decreed until the war is over. 27 He will make a strong covenant with leaders for one week [of years]. For half of the week he will put a stop to the sacrifice and the grain offering. On the wing of detestable things the desolator will come and continue until the already decreed destruction is poured out on the desolator." (CJB)
The day we hear of someone making a seven-year peace treaty with Israel, we'll be able to count exactly seven years until Y'shua's return!
(As a side note, although the Bible does refer to the "antichrist" as a "he" - this may or may not be a man; it may simply be the antichrist SYSTEM of the world. The exact meaning of "antichrist" will be completely revealed as time goes by.)
Never before has the world seen the accumulation of events as we have today! Although no one knows the EXACT day nor the hour that Messiah will return (although the next mo’ed/festival to be fulfilled by Y’shua IS Yom Teruah/Trumpets, when YHWH calls His people home), no generation has had as many signs of the times as OUR generation. We have more reason to believe that Yeshua could come in our lifetime than any other generation before us….
Thank you for exposing the ideas of "mid-trib" and "pre-trib" rapture.ReplyDelete
Does the above mean ... that Yeshua cannot come "any day" just now ?... not until the Peace Treaty with Israel is signed .... and If it gets signed .. say today .. Then we count 7 years .. then Yeshua will Come... in a way ... that lets us know .. that HE cannot come just Yet ? .... So in a way .. we do have an Idea of When YESHUA will Come ? Sorry if I am a bit mixed up !!!--- Or is this after the rapture of HIS Own ? For "The Marriage Supper of the LAMB ?ReplyDelete
Thanks for the question, Jemima!Delete
That's exactly what that means, sis. YHWH does everything in sequence and for a reason. Yeshua has so far only fulfilled the first four Feasts/Appointed Times. There are three more to go - with the next one being Yom Teruah/Rosh HaShana (Feast of Trumpets and the New Year) (when YHWH calls His people together).
When the Trump from Heaven sounds, the true Believers (both dead and alive) will be called up to meet Yeshua in the air, and then be off to celebrate the "Marriage Supper of the Lamb."
Remember that "time" means nothing in YHWH's Realm (a thousand years is like a day and vice-versa), so we don't know how long that will take, but we know that, afterward, we'll be returning to earth to help Yeshua rule and reign for a thousand years.
The only two Feasts left at that point are Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement and Sukkot/Tabernacles: https://therefinersfire.org/feasts3.htm
Although I can't prove it, I feel that those last three Feasts (starting with Trumpets) will occur almost simultaneously - ending Yeshua's need to fulfill the Appointed Times. Sukkot is when he comes to "tabernacle" among His people ... which, I'm guessing refers t the Millennium, when Yeshua himself will be showing the world "how to properly worship" his Father. it will be a time of learning and growing like never before.
So, right now, we're waiting on Yeshua to fulfill Trumpets. When will that happen? Well, judging by everything that's happening in the world right now - all of which lines up with Scripture (Daniel and Revelation) - it shouldn't be too much longer.Delete
All of YHWH's major "future" events have taken place on His mo'edim/Appointed Times. The next one to be fulfilled is Yom Teruah, and so Yeshua's return WILL be on a future Yom Teruah ... which one, nobody knows, but it's probably somewhere between 2030 and 2045 (according to the Jubilee Years ... which is a completely different and hard to explain subject).
