INCOMING EMAIL, RE: DANIEL CHAPTER 12 IS A 'TRIPLE PROPHECY' OF THREE SIMULTANEOUSLY OCCURING PROPHETIC EVENTS

Daniel chapter 12 is a 'TRIPLE PROPHECY' because it tells us that THREE END-OF-DAYS EVENTS are being fulfilled simultaneously, one in heaven, one on earth. and one between earth and heaven. It also tells us that none of the wicked will understand, but ONLY THE WISE WILL UNDERSTAND.

Daniel 12:1 FIRST STATES : "And AT THAT TIME Michael shall stand up", and then go to Revelation 12:7-12 for the rest of the fulfillment of that prophetic event of Michael casting Satan out of heaven just BEFORE THE RAPTURE. (prophecy being fulfilled in heaven)

AND THEN:

Daniel 12:1 STATES A SECOND TIME : "And AT THAT TIME there shall be a time of trouble (tribulation) such as never was since there was a nation (Israel) , even to that time." This is God's great tribulation upon Israel just BEFORE THE RAPTURE. (prophecy being fulfilled on earth)

AND THEN:

Daniel 12:1 STATES A THIRD TIME : "And AT THAT TIME your people shall be delivered (raptured) , everyone who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life." THIS IS THE RAPTURE OF HIS CHURCH. (prophecy being fulfilled between earth and heaven)

So you see, when you include the prophecy of Daniel 11:45 with the three prophecies of Daniel 12:1 there are a total of FOUR PROPHECIES which are going to be fulfilled at nearly THE SAME TIME, but within ten days as confirmed by Revelation 2:10 "you will have TRIBULATION TEN DAYS....and I will GIVE YOU THE CROWN OF LIFE."

TO SEE THE RESULT of the fulfillment of the 'triple prophecies' of Daniel 12:1 GO TO Revelation 12:7-12 and you will see that Satan is cast down to earth, and the raptured Church is NOW REJOICING WHILE DWELLING IN HEAVEN "Immediately AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE ( TEN ) DAYS.." Matt 24:29

"None of the wicked shall understand, BUT THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND" Daniel 12:10

Christ's script for his miracle play "The Revelation of Jesus Christ" is written as if the time is 10 days before the First-Trump Rapture, which is Mid-Trib.

Rev 2:8-10 says, "And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna (meaning myrhh, bitterness, tribulation) write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; 9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. 10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. 11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death."

Psa_116:15 says, "Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints." They will be taken to heaven. The real person never dies.

THE BOOKENDS, ONE IN THE FIRST CHAPTER, THE OTHER IN THE LAST CHAPTER

Rev 1:3 says, "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for THE TIME IS AT HAND."

Rev 22:10 says, "And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for THE TIME IS AT HAND."

NO WONDER JESUS SIGNS OFF WITH "SURELY I COME QUICKLY" IN REV. 22:20; IN THIS MIRACLE PLAY, HE IS COMING IN TEN DAYS

In Rev. 1:19, John is told, "Write the things which thou hast seen (i.e., before the Rapture), and the things which are (i.e., at the time of the Rapture), and the things which shall be HEREAFTER (i.e., the Great Tribulation, the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of God's Wrath, and the Second Advent).

The Great Tribulation that has to be shortened or no flesh would be saved follows the first Rapture. At the end of the shortened Great Tribulation, the Last-Trump Rapture will take place on the Day of God's Wrath. After that, the Second Advent will take place.

Rev 1:1 says, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass (i.e., in ten days); and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John".

Rev 1:9-11 says, "I John, who also am your brother, and COMPANION IN TRIBULATION, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos (meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (DAY OF CHRIST, THE DAY OF THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia".

THE TWO RAPTURES

THE "COME UP HITHER" OF REV. 4;1, AND THE "COME UP HITHER" OF REV. 11:12.

WHAT WILL BE THE SCENE IN HEAVEN WHEN WE GET THERE?

In Rev 1:12-18, John tells us. He said, "I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks (i.e., representing the 7 churches); 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man (Jesus), clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle (a sign of deity). 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass (meaning curse), as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars (i.e., the angels of the 7 churches): and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death."

> > Daniel 12:1 STATES A SECOND TIME : "And AT THAT TIME there shall be a (tribulation) such as never was since there was a nation (Israel) , even to that time." This is God's great tribulation upon Israel just BEFORE THE RAPTURE. (prophecy being fulfilled on earth)

The Great Tribulation is sandwiched between the First-Trump Rapture (Mid-Trib), and the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of God's Wrath.

Rev 7:13,14 says, "And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

Dan_12:1 says, "And at that time (i.e., Mid-Trib) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble (i.e., following Mid-Trib), such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time (i.e., MId-Trib) thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book."

This Tribulation is not just "upon Israel". It is upon the whole world. There were nations before Israel. The whole fertile crescent was populated. Abraham came from Ur of the Chaldees in Gen. 11:26,27.

The whole world is having tribulation now, even the creatures in the Pacific Ocean are receiving radiation, the worst of the radiation plume that is in the ocean is to hit CA in March, but most of the middle east news seems bad these days. Our embassy just fled Yemen.

Dan 12:1-4 says, "And at that time (i.e., Mid-Trib) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be (i.e., after the bride of Christ is caught up Mid-Trib) a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time (i.e., Mid-Trib) thy people shall be delivered (malat, escape, i.e., in the First-Trump Rapture), every one that shall be found written in the book. 2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. 4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."

> > Daniel 12:1 STATES A THIRD TIME : "And AT THAT TIME your people shall be delivered (raptured) , everyone who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life." THIS IS THE RAPTURE OF HIS CHURCH. (prophecy being fulfilled between earth and heaven)

Yes. That is the First-Trump Rapture for the Bride of Christ.

> > So you see, when you include the prophecy of Daniel 11:45 with the three prophecies of Daniel 12:1 there are a total of FOUR PROPHECIES which are going to be fulfilled at nearly THE SAME TIME, but within ten days as confirmed by Revelation 2:10 " you will have TRIBULATION TEN DAYS....and I will GIVE YOU THE CROWN OF LIFE."

Rev_2:10 says to the church, not Israel, "Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."

The last 10-days of tribulation for the church, the Bride of Christ, is the last 10 days before the Mid-Trib Rapture, maybe between Tue. March 24, Nisan 4, 5775 and April 2, 2015, Nisan 13, 5775.

> > TO SEE THE RESULT of the fulfillment of the 'triple prophecies' of Daniel 12:1 GO TO Revelation 12:7-12 and you will see that Satan is cast down to earth, and the raptured Church is NOW REJOICING WHILE DWELLING IN HEAVEN "Immediately AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE ( TEN ) DAYS.." Matt 24:29

Israel's Great Tribulation follows Satan getting kicked out of Heaven when the First-Trump Rapture takes place Mid-Trib.

Rev 12:7-14 says, "And there was war in heaven (i.e., Mid-Trib): Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now (arti, just now) is come salvation (soteria, rescue, i.e., the First-Trump Rapture), and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe (i.e., the shortened Great Tribulation) to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having GREAT WRATH, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time (i.e., the shortened Great Tribulation). 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted (dioko, to pursue, follow after, press toward, persecute) the woman (i.e., Israel) which brought forth the man child. 14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place (i.e., Petra), where she is nourished for A TIME, AND TIMES, AND HALF A TIME (i.e., 3.5 years of the Great Tribulation, but it will be shortened), from the face of the serpent."

Job 38:22,23 says, "Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, 23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war (i.e., the Gog and Magog war of Eze. 38:18-23)?"

THE SECRET OF HIS TABERNACLE

Psa_27:5 says, "For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion (i.e., at the Mid-Trib Rapture): in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock" (i.e., Saturn, heaven, throne of the only God/man, Eze. 1.1,26-28).

The altar set on Earth, and the Brazen Sea represented Earth. The Holy Place represented two globes whose length, width and height were equal, Mars and Jupiter. The Holy of Holies, whose length, width and height were equal, represented Saturn, where the throne of Jesus is located.

THE LORD WILL RAPTURE US MID-TRIB, I.E., "IN TIME OF TROUBLE"

Psa_37:39 says, "But the salvation (tshuah, rescue) of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.

Psa_41:1 says, "Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble."

Isa_33:2 says, "O LORD, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be thou their arm every morning, OUR SALVATION (YESHUAH, JESUS) also in the time of trouble" (i.e., in the Tribulation).

Jer_14:8 says, "O the hope of Israel, the saviour (YASHA) thereof in time of trouble, why shouldest thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man that turneth aside to tarry for a night?

Dan_12:1 says, "And at that time (i.e., Mid-Trib) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and THERE SHALL BE (i.e., AFTERWARD) A TIME OF TROUBLE, SUCH AS NEVER WAS SINCE THERE WAS A NATION EVEN TO THAT SAME TIME: AND AT THAT TIME, MID-TRIB, THY PEOPLE SHALL BE DELIVERED (MALAT, ESCAPE, i.e., BE RAPTURED), EVERY ONE THAT SHALL BE FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK."

IT IS THE GREAT TRIBULATION THAT FOLLOWS THE MID-TRIB FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE THAT IS TO BE SHORTENED

Mat 24:15-24 says, "When ye therefore shall see the abomination (bdelugma, detestation, i.e., idol) of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (topos, spot, location, i.e., on the Temple Mount), (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then (tote, at that time) let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then (tote, at that time) 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 (tote, at that time) 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."

Mar 13:14-20 says, "But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation (i.e., an idol), spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand (i.e., on the Temple Mount,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: 15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: 16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. 17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. 19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. 20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but FOR THE ELECT'S SAKE, WHOM HE HATH CHOSEN, HE HATH SHORTENED THE DAYS."

2Th 2:3,4 says, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (i.e., Day of the Lord) shall not come, except there come a falling away (DEPARTURE, i.e., the First-Trump Rapture) first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."

GAZA AND IRAN WILL NOT GET AWAY WITH TRYING TO DESTROY ISRAEL, "FOR ISRAEL HATH NOT BEEN FORSAKEN. THE LORD'S DEVICE, THE SWORD OF THE LORD, SATAN'S ASTEROID WORMWOOD, IS AGAINST BABYLON AND ALL THE INHABITANTS OF CHALDEA

Rev 8:10,11 says, "And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers (probably the Tigris and Euphrates), and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."

Isa 22:16=19 says, "What hast thou here? (i.e., Babylon) and whom hast thou here (i.e, the Satan indwelt False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a ROCK? 17 Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. 18 HE WILL SURELY VIOLENTLY TURN AND TOSS THEE LIKE A BALL INTO A LARGE COUNTRY (i.e., Iraq): there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. 19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."

Eze_21:15 says, "I HAVE SET THE POINT OF THE SWORD AGAINST ALL THEIR GATES, that their heart may faint, and their ruins be multiplied: ah! it is made bright, it is wrapped up for the slaughter."

Jer 51:4-8 says, "Thus the slain shall fall in the land of the Chaldeans, and they that are thrust through in her streets. 5 FOR ISRAEL HATH NOT BEEN FORSAKEN, nor Judah of his God, of the LORD of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel. 6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD'S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence. 7 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. 8 Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed".

Jer 51:11 says, "Make bright the arrows; gather the shields: the LORD hath raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes: for HIS DEVICE (i.e., the asteroid Wormwood, Rev. 8:11) is against Babylon, to destroy it; because IT IS THE VENGEANCE OF THE LORD, THE VENGEANCE OF HIS TEMPLE."

Rev 18:21 says, "And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all."

Jer 51:24,25 says, "And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the LORD. 25 Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain."

Jer 51:42-45 says, "The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof. 43 Her cities are a desolation, a dry land, and a wilderness, a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass thereby. 44 And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall. 45 My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD."

Jer 50:2 says, "Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces."

Jer 51:49 says, "As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth."

Jer 51:53 says, "Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the LORD."

Jer 51:62 says, "Then shalt thou say, O LORD, thou hast spoken against this place, to cut it off, that none shall remain in it, neither man nor beast, but that it shall be desolate for ever."

Jer 47:1 says, "The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Philistines, before that Pharaoh smote Gaza. 2 Thus saith the LORD; Behold, waters rise up out of the north, and shall be an overflowing flood (i.e., a tsunami), and shall overflow the land, and all that is therein; the city, and them that dwell therein: then the men shall cry, and all the inhabitants of the land shall howl."

THE DAY OF DESPERATE SORROW

Eze 38:18- 23 says, "And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence (paniym, face, i.e., the Sign of the Son of Man will be seen in the sky), and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations (i.e., they will see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky), and they shall know that I am the LORD."

THE MOUNTAIN-SIZED ASTEROID OF REV. 8:8 WILL IMPACT THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA AND CUT OFF GAZA AND ASHKELON

Rev 8:8,9 says, "And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed."

Jer 47:5-7 says, "Baldness is come upon Gaza; Ashkelon is cut off with the remnant of their valley: how long wilt thou cut thyself? 6 O thou sword of the LORD, how long will it be ere thou be quiet? put up thyself into thy scabbard, rest, and be still. 7 How can it be quiet, seeing the LORD hath given it a charge against Ashkelon, and against the sea shore? there hath he appointed it."

Isa_24:1 says "Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."

That will be Jesus' Long Day, of which Joshua's Long Day was a type. Agape

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: QUESTION

Hi Marilyn, I have followed you for years. 3 weeks ago my husband of 42 years..come Feb17th...died suddenly of a heart attack. Sunday afternoon I was taking a nap and had a dream where I was singing a duet with someone. The song was "Walk Right Back" by the Everly Brothers. I haven't thought of that song in years, but the dream was very vivid and specific. Made laugh out loud when I woke up...and cry a little. This morning I was thinking..."that might not be so far fetched!" There were resurrected saints that walked the earth with Jesus at his resurrection. So we may experience that right before the rapture. I would like for you to explain more about why our bodies need to be resurrected. You saw your husband in a form, but will he be changed at some point again as well? Thanks for your faithful witness!

MY REPLY

"RE: the rapture is not going to occur as you have been taught"

I'm still wondering what the above means.
> > Marilyn Agee, are you to say that when we have put on incorruption that we are still subject to death until we have put on immortality?

No, because we are promised immortality, but our bodies just haven't actually been made immortal yet.

> > I am confused. isnt death a form of corruption?

Yes, to the terrestrial body. But there are bodies terrestrial (corruptible) and bodies celestial (incorruptible).

> > I find your work very compelling and I have read it over many times trying to get exactly what you are saying. Thanks for the post.

I appreciate your kinds words.

Basically, as I understand the scriptures, we become incorrupt at EITHER Rapture but actually become IMMORTAL ONLY AT THE SECOND RAPTURE when the entire Body of Christ is completed. That is what happens in the blink of an eye. Here are the scriptures. See what you think.

THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE

Thank God we have hope. 1Th 4:13-18 says, "I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep (i.e., the dead in Christ), that ye SORROW NOT, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so THEM ALSO WHICH SLEEP IN JESUS (i.e., the dead in Christ) WILL GOD BRING WITH HIM (i.e., at the First-Trump Rapture, my husband Ed, in his celestial body, will come with Christ). 15 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 (Old English for precede) them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God (i.e., the first trump): and THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST (i.e., Ed will get his resurrection body): 17 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. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words."

It is very comforting now to think that I will be caught up together with Ed to meet Christ in the air. I had a dream years ago of Ed and I walking to the huge open door of a large warehouse-like building in heaven. A boy I had brought to the Lord ran up to me and hugged me. He made it by the skin of his teeth. He was killed when he stepped on a mine in Viet Nam soon after he accepted Christ. Inside the building were long tables with white tablecloths and benches. We were served food.

THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD...IT IS RAISED IN INCORRUPTION AT EITHER RAPTURE; THERE ARE ALSO CELESTIAL BODIES, AND BODIES TERRESTRIAL

1Co 15:35-44 says, "But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? (i.e., with a celestial body, v. 40, a spiritual body, v. 44) 36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: 37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: 38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. 39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. 40 THERE ARE ALSO CELESTIAL BODIES, AND BODIES TERRESTRIAL: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. 41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. 42 So also is THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. IT IS SOWN IN CORRUPTION (i.e., a terrestrial body); IT IS RAISED IN INCORRUPTION (i.e., a celestial body): 43 It is sown in dishonour; IT IS RAISED IN GLORY: it is sown in weakness; IT IS RAISED IN POWER: 44 It is sown a natural body (i.e., a terrestrial body); IT IS RAISED A SPIRITUAL BODY (i.e., an incorruptable celestial body). THERE IS A NATURAL BODY, AND THERE IS A SPIRITUAL BODY."

ALL (INCLUDING PAUL) SHALL BE CHANGED AND ACTUALLY BECOME IMMORTAL AT THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE

Now, we are promised immortality. Then, we will actually become immortal.

1Co 15:48-54 says, "As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, AT THE LAST TRUMP: for the trumpet shall sound, and THE DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE, AND WE (INCLUDING PAUL) SHALL BE CHANGED. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption (i.e., this happens at both Raptures), AND this mortal must put on immortality (i.e., this happens ONLY AT THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, when the Body of Christ is complete). 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."
