THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE IS NEAR MID-TRIB, AND
THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE IS POST-TRIB
By Marilyn Agee
Some just don't seem to understand. They are still expecting the Rapture to come before the Tribulation when we are already in the middle of the Tribulation.
WE WILL BE CAUGHT UP AT THE FIRST TRUMP, AND BE GIVEN IMMORTAL BODIES AT THE LAST TRUMP
1Th 4:14-18 says, "For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 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 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: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 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."
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."
Pope Francis, chosen on 3-13-13, could be the Antichrist. He blasphemed God when he said that God was not divine, and that Jesus' life "ended in failure".
He said, "God Is Not a Divine Being".
He also said, "The cross shows us a different way of measuring success.
"Ours is to plant the seeds: God sees to the fruits of our labors.
"And if at times our efforts and works seem to fail and produce no fruit, we need to remember that we are followers of Jesus . . . and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, in the failure of the cross."
That blasphemy helps me understand Rev 13:5-11. It takes place near Mid-Trib, and "THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN" are the just-raptured wise virgins.
CONCERNING ANTICHRIST AND "THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN"
Rev 13:1 says, "I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea (i.e., or holy see), having seven heads (i.e., Babel, Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, Holy Roman Empire, Ecclesiastical Holy Roman Empire, and Babylon III) and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy" (Pontifex Maximus, started by Nimrod, or vicarius filii dei, which is found on the Pope's hat, and which, in Roman numbers, adds up to 666).
Rev 13:5-11 says, "And there was given unto him (i.e., 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 just raptured wise-virgin saints). 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., the foolish-virgins left behind), 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 (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."
IT LOOKS LIKE WE JUST PASSED THE MIDDLE OF THE TRIBULATION
"From Wednesday, March 13, 2013
"Added 1260 days
"Result: Wednesday, August 24, 2016"
I won't forget that date. August 23 is my grandson's birthday. August 24 is my mother's birthday.
If Mid-Trib has passed, the First-Trump Rapture should be soon, and the sign of the Moon Under Virgo's Feet of Rev 12 is coming up on the Feast of Trumpets, Oct. 3, 2016.
2Th 2:1-4 (HNV) says, "Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and our gathering together to him (i.e., in the DEPARTURE, THE DAY OF CHRIST), we ask you 2 not to be quickly shaken in your mind, nor yet be troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by letter as from us, saying that the day of Messiah (i.e., Day of the Lord, day of the Last-Trump Rapture) had come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless THE DEPARTURE (i.e., the First-Trump Rapture) COMES FIRST, and the man of sin (i.e., the False Prophet) is revealed, the son of destruction, he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself up as God."
Moses and Elijah come at the time of the First-Trump Rapture. It looks like they will get the temple built after we (i.e., the Temple of the Holy Spirit) are gone.
THE TRANSFIGURATION PREFIGURES THE MID-TRIB RAPTURE WHEN TABERNACLES IS CLOSE
Mar 9:1-8 (KJV) says, "Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power. 2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. 3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding WHITE AS SNOW; so as no fuller on earth can white them. 4 And there appeared unto them ELIAS with MOSES: and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for MOSES, and one for ELIAS. 6 For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid. 7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 8 And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves."
At that time, Moses and Elijah appear on Earth.
THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE IS THE "COME UP HITHER" OF REV 4:1 AND THE "RISE" OF REV. 11:1
In Rev 10:11, John is told, "Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings." Therefore, the "RISE" in Rev 11:1 is the First-Trump Rapture, and the "COME UP HITHER" of Rev 11:12 is the Last-Trump Rapture. There is no earthquake at the first Rapture, but there is a great earthquake at the last Rapture.
Rev 11:1-3 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE (i.e., in the First-Trump Rapture), and measure the temple of God (i.e., we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit), 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 (i.e., during the Great Tribulation). 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses (i.e., Moses and Elijah), and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e., during the Great Tribulation), clothed in sackcloth."
AFTER THE 1260 DAYS, MOSES AND ELIJAH ARE CAUGHT UP TO HEAVEN AND THERE IS A GREAT EARTHQUAKE
Rev 11:12,13 says, "And they (i.e., Moses and Elijah) heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour was there a great EARTHQUAKE, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."
AT MID-TRIB, "THE RIGHTEOUS IS TAKEN AWAY FROM THE EVIL TO COME"
Isa 57:1-3 says, "The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that THE RIGHTEOUS IS TAKEN AWAY FROM THE EVIL TO COME. 2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness. 3 But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore."
Psa 149:5-9 says, "Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; 7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; 8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD."
CHRIST'S ARMY WINS
Rev 19:19-21 says, "And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against HIS ARMY. 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh."
MEN CAN STILL BE SAVED DURING THE TRIBULATION
Joh_16:33 says, "These things I have spoken unto you (i.e., the disciples), that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
Deu 4:30,31 says, "When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, EVEN IN THE LATTER DAYS, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; 31 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them."
1Co 15:55-57 says, "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
I John 5:4,5 says, "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?"
If Jesus appears to you in a dream, accept him as your Lord and Saviour.
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST IS WRITTEN
AS IF THE MID-TRIB RAPTURE IS AT HAND
By Marilyn Agee
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".
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."
"YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS"
Rev 2:10 says, "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."
Is the setting of The Revelation of Jesus Christ ten days before the Rapture? If so, we should read it with new eyes.
THE "GREAT TRIBULATION" IS "AT HAND"
Rev 2:22 says, "Behold, I will cast her (i.e., the church of Thyatira) into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into GREAT TRIBULATION, except they repent of their deeds."
THE TIME OF THE TRANSFIGURATION IS MID-TRIB, WHEN MOSES AND ELIJAH COME
Mat 17:1-11 says, "And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain (i.e., Heaven) apart, 2 And was transfigured (metamorphoo, transformed, changed) 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. 4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three TABERNACLES; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. 6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. 9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. 10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? 11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things."
THE SETTING OF THE TRANSFIGURATION IS JUST BEFORE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES
Mar 9:2-8 says, "And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. 3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding WHITE AS SNOW; so as no fuller on earth can white them. 4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three TABERNACLES; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 6 For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid. 7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 8 And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves."
THE CLOTHING OF JESUS BEING WHITE AS SNOW TIES THE TRANSFIGURATION IN WITH THE RAPTURE IN THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
Rev 1:9-16 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, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (lit., became) in the Spirit (i.e., as in the Rapture) on the Lord's day (i.e., the Mid-Trib Day of Christ), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last.... 12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 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, 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: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and HIS COUNTENANCE WAS AS THE SUN SHINETH IN HIS STRENGTH."
THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES IS NEAR, AND "WHITE AS SNOW" TIES IN WITH DAN 7:9
Dan_7:9 says, "I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, WHOSE GARMENT WAS WHITE AS SNOW, AND THE HAIR OF HIS HEAD LIKE THE PURE WOOL: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire."
THE MID-TRIB RAPTURE AND THE COMING OF MOSES AND ELIJAH IS IN REV 11:1-4
Rev 10:11 says to John, "Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."
Then Rev 11:1-3 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE (i.e., in the Mid-Trib Rapture), and measure the temple of God (i.e., we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit), 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 (i.e., during the Great Tribulation). 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses (i.e., Moses and Elijah), and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e., during the Great Tribulation), clothed in sackcloth. 4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth."
Moses represents those who have died and been resurrected. Elijah represents those that have not died.
ELIJAH COMES MID-TRIB
Mal 4:5,6 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet BEFORE the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD (i.e., which comes after the Tribulation): 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
THE TWO OLIVE TREES THAT STAND BY THE LORD AT THE TRANSFIGURATION ARE MOSES AND ELIJAH
Zec 4:2-14 says, "And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: 3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. 4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?"
Zec 4:11-14 says, "Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? 12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? 13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. 14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth."
Moses and Elijah stood by the Lord of the whole earth at the Transfiguration, which represented the Mid-Trib Rapture.
THERE IS NO EARTHQUAKE AT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, BUT WHEN MOSES AND ELIJAH ARE RAPTURED ON THE DAY OF THE LORD AT THE END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION, THERE IS A GREAT EARTHQUAKE
Rev 11:4-13 says, "These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. 6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. 7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. 10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. 11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, COME UP HITHER. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour was there a GREAT EARTHQUAKE, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."
THE GREAT EARTHQUAKE WILL BE CAUSED BY THE IMPACT OF SATAN'S ASTEROID WORMWOOD
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, and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star is called WORMWOOD (i.e., which means bitter): and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."
Isa 51:9,10 says, "Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut (chatsab, split, divided) Rahab (i.e., Satan's planet, now our Asteroid Belt), and wounded the dragon? 10 Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep".
An asteroid impact explosion causes acid rain. There was acid rain caused by heat shock after the Tunguska comet impact June 30, 1908, and after the Chelyabinsk meteor explosion Feb. 15, 2013. There was no Iridium Anomaly after the Tunguska Impact though.
BYE, BYE BABYLON
Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (i.e., Babylon) and whom hast thou here (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (i.e., 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: 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."
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."
