THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE WILL BE ON THE DAY OF THE LORD AT THE END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION
By Marilyn Agee
1Co 15:51-54 says, "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 shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 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."
Joe 2:1-11 says, "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; 2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. 3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. 4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. 5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. 6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. 7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: 8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. 9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. 10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: 11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?"
Joe 2:15-18 says, "Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: 16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. 17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? 18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people."
Joe 2:27-32 says, "And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. 28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. 30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. 32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call."
Act 2:17-21 says, "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20 THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS, AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THAT GREAT AND NOTABLE DAY OF THE LORD COME: 21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Rev 6:12-17 says, "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and THE SUN BECAME BLACK AS SACKCLOTH OF HAIR, AND THE MOON BECAME AS BLOOD; 13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 For THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME; and who shall be able to stand?"
Rev 7:14,15 says, "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. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them."
Just got this in, thought I would share this Video with you.
The person who made that video said that Jesus was resurrected on Nisan 17. That is an error.
Jesus was crucified on the preparation of the Passover, Thursday, April 6, 30 AD, and resurrected on Sunday, Nisan 16, April 9.
Joh_19:14-16 says, "IT WAS THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! 15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. 16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified."
Thursday was the preparation of the Passover, Nisan 13, April 6, 30 AD.
Friday was Passover, Nisan 14, April 7.
Saturday was Unleavened Bread, Nisan 15, April 8.
Sunday was Firstfruits, Nisan 16, April 9.
Mat_12:40 says, "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."
Those were Thursday, day, Friday, night then day, Saturday, night then day, and Sunday, night.
Mat_27:63 says, "Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again."
Mar_8:31 says, "And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again."
Joh_2:19 says, "Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."
Those days were Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. He arose on Sunday. Agape
MY REPLY TO A POST ON FIVE DOVES, RE: Gerry Almond (17 Jan 2016) "My Take on Today, Prepare!"
> > Simply stated, I do not believe that there is a seven years tribulation period ahead for us.
I don't either. I think we are near Mid-Trib now. Aug. 24, 2016 will be Mid-Trib if 3-13-13 (when Pope Francis was chosen) was the beginning of the Tribulation.
> > The Antichrist is also on the scene. So is the False Prophet. Most of you reading this article know who both are. U. S. President Obama is the first, and Pope Francis is the other, I believe. They are both under heavenly restraint until the rapture of the ready Church. Then both will be revealed to the left behind world in all their power. And this will be the time of sudden destruction, a time that the Scriptures define as 42 months, or 3 1/2 years of 360 days.
To me, the Antichrist is in power. The False Prophet has not yet come up.
Rev 13:5-12 says, "And there was given unto him (i.e., the first beast, Antichrist) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN (i.e., the First-Trump Rapture has just taken place). 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., those like the Laodiceans and Thyatirians that get left behind the first time), and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 11 And I beheld ANOTHER BEAST coming up out of the earth (i.e., at Mid-Trib); and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed."

A POST ON FIVE DOVES, RE: Ola Ilori (31 Jan 2016) "A SATURDAY RAPTURE"
In 2010, Carlos Mwangi, from Nairobi, Kenya, fell into a trance and was shown that when the rapture occurs, it will be at around 18:00 hrs on a Saturday.
It just so happens that First-fruits, on the Creator's Calendar, also falls on a Saturday -The 7th of May 2016.
When it's 18:00 hrs on the 7th of May in Nairobi, it will also be 18:00 hrs on the 7th of May in Jerusalem as well! This means that the Lord is going to wait until the very Last Watch, on First-fruits, before He gathers up His saints into heaven to attend the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
Here's Carlos's Testimony:
"...I was in the city center of Nairobi city, I had been sent by my mother to do some errands and I was now on my way back home.
As I was crisscrossing shoulder to shoulder I suddenly looked down for I felt very uneasy with my left shoe so I bent down to adjust it.
I was very aware of my surroundings suddenly standing up I just froze and looked up and then leveled my head where I could see cars.
They all began crashing simultaneously and there were people falling at the same time because all over, graves were opening.
Directly above, to the direction I was facing, I saw a big angel with big triangular curved elegant wings with a golden trumpet standing in front of the other angels, and the line of these angels stretched back as far as I could see and he blew the trumpet a second time.
Then I turned to the opposite direction and I saw people flying towards a center and there was JESUS with Angel Michael at his side.
It's then that I realized that the heavenly citizens were on opposite sides of the sky. The music from the trumpet was sweet and loud and did not hurt my ears. I don't remember the tune but it was inviting pulling me up to the clouds.
THE Arch Angel who had the trumpet in front seemed to blow it continuously blowing a long key and the others behind him seemed to play Music but it was pure harmony all the same..the sky light was so bright like golden yellowish color.
It was around 6:00 PM and it was a Saturday.
I noticed that people seemed confused at the noise, others were hysterical, as if demon possessed, because they held their ears and screamed in agony.
It then vanished as quick as it had started...I closed my eyes and started shaking my head. I seemed to have stepped into eternity. Even though I was very much aware of everyone else. That's when I realized that people were looking at me. Then it hit me! I was standing right in the middle of the path as if in a trance.
When I got home I prayed to the Father to let me know everything. He let me know that it was my expectancy that was beaming in my spirit ever since I started fellowship with my FB family, talking about the rapture and the Wedding Supper of the Lamb.
Then later, that's when it came to my realization, ONLY THE READY will hear the Trumpet sound as music. But the unbelievers, due to the commotion with the earthquake and the crashing of everything around them, will be confused with hysteria, the Trumpet will sound like bomb explosions going off all around them.
The rapture itself will also not take too long in this "time existence" I was made to understand that it will take less than 5 minutes. It will happen so fast and everything will go quiet again.
To those who will be flying it will be an eternal moment. For eternity has been placed in our hearts according to the Scriptures. But I'm guessing, for those who are left here, it will be the longest 5 minutes of their entire existence. I saw everything happening so fast, yet through their eyes I saw everything happening in slow motion, like a never ending nightmare.
Soon people, very soon, its going to happen.
So get ready!"
> > It was around 6:00 PM and it was a Saturday.
I am hoping for the First-Trump Rapture next Pentecost.
Pentecost seems to be the beginning and ending of the Church Age. June 12, 2016, will begin as Sunday, Sivan 6, 5776, begins at 6 PM Saturday.
"IN LIKE MANNER"
Act 1:9-11 says, "And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."
Jesus came to indwell the church ten days later, on Pentecost. I expect him to catch up the Philadelphian church (for whom he had no words of condemnation) Mid-Trib, on Pentecost.
Rev 13:5-9 says, "And there was given unto him (i.e., the first beast, Antichrist) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (i.e., the first half of the Tribulation). 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN (i.e., the First-Trump Rapture has just taken place). 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear."
"ANOTHER BEAST", THE FALSE PROPHET, COMES UP AFTER THOSE "THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN" ARE RAPTURED NEAR MID-TRIB
Rev 13:11,12 says, "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed."

INCOMING EMAIL, Subject: Fwd: THE "FIELDS ARE WHITE FOR HARVEST" IN APRIL
THE "FIELDS ARE WHITE FOR HARVEST" IN THE MONTH OF APRIL WHICH IS NISAN
The first crop harvested in the FIRST MONTH of Spring, which is April (Nisan), in Israel is the barley crop. When it is ready to be harvested it appears "white" to the eye when looking upon the fields :
"Behold, i say to you, Lift up your eyes and look upon the fields : for THEY ARE WHITE already UNTO HARVEST (rapture). And He that reaps receives reward, and GATHERS (raptures) FRUIT UNTO ETERNAL LIFE..."
" My people perish for LACK OF KNOWLEDGE."
"Let us pursue the KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us LIKE THE RAIN , like the LATTER and the FORMER rain to earth."
"And rejoice in the Lord your God, for He has given you the FORMER RAIN faithfully, and He will cause the rain TO COME DOWN FOR YOU -- the former rain , and the LATTER RAIN IN THE FIRST MONTH."
The "FIRST MONTH" of God's Sacred Lunar Year is Nisan which always begins on the first New Moon over Jerusalem following the Vernal (Spring) Equinox in March. In the year 2016 the first new Moon over Jerusalem after the Vernal Equinox is on April 7, 2016 which makes it Nisan 1, 2016. I believe that day begins the "DAY OF THE LORD" great tribulation of God's judgment upon Israel for "TEN DAYS" before the rapture according to :
"...you will have TRIBULATION TEN DAYS. Be faithful unto death, and I WILL GIVE YOU THE CROWN OF LIFE."
The day of Nisan 10, 2016 falls on Saturday April 16, 2016 and is Palm Sabbath , the Day of Palms. I believe it to be THE DAY OF THE RAPTURE which occurs AFTER God's "ten day" great tribulation judgment upon Israel, but BEFORE God's tribulation judgment of 1,260 days which then comes upon the whole world AFTER the rapture according to :
"I will also keep you from the hour of temptation (1,260 days) which shall come upon the WHOLE WORLD, to test those (left-behind) who dwell on the earth."
If, in fact, the year 2016 is actually the "acceptable year of the Lord" we can reasonably expect the aforementioned scenario to be fulfilled. Come Lord Jesus !
> > "Behold, i say to you, Lift up your eyes and look upon the fields : for THEY ARE WHITE already UNTO HARVEST (rapture). And He that reaps receives reward, and GATHERS (raptures) FRUIT UNTO ETERNAL LIFE..."
Jesus was speaking to the Samaritan woman when he said, "Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest." (John 4:35, KJV)
Barley looks white at the time of harvest. The first sheaf of barley was offered on Firstfruits, which pictured the resurrection of Jesus.
Pentecost Sunday, the Feast of Weeks, pictured the tremendous harvest of souls.
Act 2:38-41 says, "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls."
WE ARE WHEAT, AND WHEAT HARVEST BEGINS AT PENTECOST, THE FEAST OF WEEKS
Luk_22:31 says, "And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat".
Exo_34:22 says, "And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks (i.e., Pentecost), of the firstfruits of wheat harvest".
Rth_2:23 says, "So she (i.e., Ruth) kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest".
Mat_13:30 says, "Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the WHEAT into my barn."
BARLEY IS "WHITE UNTO HARVEST" AT FIRSTFRUITS
"The words from John 4:30, "white unto harvest" are hard to imagine if a person has no idea of what a field of barley looks like just before it is harvested. This verse was given just after Passover and the feast of First Fruits during the barley harvest. The fields were white. THE HARVEST OF SOULS DID NOT START UNTIL THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT FEAST, THE FEAST OF PENTECOST (SHAVUOT)."
The first sheaf of barley is offered on Firstfruits. It pictures the resurrection of Jesus.
"And just as the wave sheaf was lifted up into the air and waved, symbolizing Christ's trip to heaven and return, so the wave loaves were lifted up and waved, symbolizing that we too shall for a moment leave this solid Earth when we ascend to meet Him in the air (1?Thessalonians 4:16-17) before we return with Him to stand on the Mount of Olives as He begins His millennial rule (Acts 1:11; Zechariah 14:3-4)."...
THE FIRST TRUMP RAPTURE, IS AT THE TIME OF "TENDER GRAPES" AND "GREEN FIGS"
To me, Pentecost represents the First-Trump Rapture of ITh 4:16,17 at the time of first-ripe grapes and green figs.
Son 2:10-15 says, "My beloved spake, and said unto me, RISE UP, MY LOVE, MY FAIR ONE, AND COME AWAY (halak, depart, i.e., in the First-Trump Rapture). 11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone (i.e., NISAN IS OVER); 12 The flowers appear on the earth (i.e., April showers bring May flowers); the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle (tor, ring dove, turtledove) is heard in our land (i.e., they come to Israel in April and leave in October); 13 THE FIG TREE PUTTETH FORTH HER GREEN FIGS, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. ARISE, MY LOVE, MY FAIR ONE, AND COME AWAY. 14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely. 15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for OUR VINES HAVE TENDER GRAPES."
THE TIME OF "TENDER GRAPES" IS JUNE
ON THE MONDAY FOLLOWING PALM SUNDAY, "THE TIME OF FIGS WAS NOT YET"
Mar_11:13 says, "And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he (i.e., Jesus) came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for THE TIME OF FIGS WAS NOT YET."
FULLY-FORMED FIGS COME ON ABOUT SIX WEEKS LATER
"The time of the fig is not yet," says Mark, for it was just before PASSOVER, ABOUT SIX WEEKS BEFORE THE FULLY-FORMED FIG APPEARS. The fact that Mark adds these words shows that he knew what he was talking about. When the fig leaves appear about the end of March, they are accompanied by a crop of small knobs, called taqsh by the Arabs, a sort of fore-runner of the real figs. These taqsh are eaten by peasants and others when hungry. They drop off before the real fig is formed. But if the leaves appear unaccompanied by taqsh, there will be no figs that year. So it was evident to our Lord, when He turned aside to see if there were any of these taqsh on the fig-tree to assuage His hunger for the time being, that the absence of the taqsh meant that there would be no figs when the time of figs came. For all its fair foliage, it was a fruitless and a hopeless tree." (Bruce, Are The New Testament Documents Reliable? [Intervarsity Press; Downers Grove, Ill, fifth revised edition 1992], pp. 73-74"
THESE RIPEN IN APRIL
"Cherry, Green Sour Plums, Nectarine, Peach, Watermelon, Winter Squashes" (http://funjoelsisrael.com/produce-calendar/)
"THE NORMAL EARLY SEASON FOR FIGS IN ISRAEL IS JUNE"
EARLY FIGS RIPEN IN SIVAN
AT THE TIME OF THE RAPTURE, "THE SOUR GRAPE IS RIPENING IN THE FLOWER"
Isa 18:3-7 agrees with Song 2:10-15. It says, "All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign (i.e., the UN flag) on the mountains (i.e., kingdoms); and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye. 4 For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest. 5 For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and THE SOUR GRAPE IS RIPENING IN THE FLOWER (i.e., in the spring), he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away (sur, remove, depart, take away) and cut down the branches. 6 They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall SUMMER upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall WINTER upon them. 7 In that time (i.e., SPRING) shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion."
THE TENDER GRAPES COME ON IN JUNE

"4th month (Jun/Jul)...first figs"
According to the Hebrew Calendar, April 9, 2016 will be Nisan 1, and June 12 will be Pentecost.
Pentecost means fifty. The fiftieth day is Pentecost. The fiftieth year is the Jubilee.
I am hoping for the First-Trump Rapture on Pentecost, Sun. June 12, Sivan 6 in the Jubilee Year 5776. 5775 was a Sabbatical Year. It divided by 7 equally.

Jesus rode the donkey into Jerusalem on Palm SUNDAY.
"The triumphal entry is that of Jesus coming into Jerusalem on what we know as Palm Sunday, the Sunday before the crucifixion (John 12:1, 12). The story of the triumphal entry is one of the few incidents in the life of Jesus which appears in all four Gospel accounts (Matthew 21:1-17; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:29-40; John 12:12-19)." (http://www.gotquestions.org/triumphal-entry.html)

Rev 2:10 refers to the church, not Israel.
I think the Day of the Lord will come at the end of the Great Tribulation, the last half of the seven-year Tribulation.
Joe_1:15 says, "Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come."

Mal_4:5 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD".
Elijah comes Mid-Trib.
Rev 11:1-4 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. 2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth."
Moses and Elijah stood before Christ at the Transfiguration.
Mat 17:1-3 says, "And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him."

The First-Trump Rapture is in ITH 4:16,17. The Last-Trump Rapture is in ICor 15:51-54.

The seven stars are the angels of the seven CHURCHES: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches."
Rev 2:1 says, "Unto the angel of the CHURCH of Ephesus write". Agape
