Just before the return of the Messiah to Jerusalem, He will come and take his persecuted followers away from Earth. When we are gone, Israel will be left behind to face the final antichrist and Judgment.
Its sounds like Science Fiction, but its an important part of the redemption of the followers of the Son of God, the Messiah Jesus of Nazareth. One day, soon, His followers will be called up in the air, to meet Him. Its called The Rapture.
There are several different books in the Bible that explains about this even. Like Daniel, Matthew, Luke and the book of Revelation.
God explains through Daniel that the time will come when the power of the Holy People will be completely broken. When false teachers and prophets promotes an end time revival. the true prophets warns of horrible times in the end. Millions of people shall either give up their Biblical faith, or walk away into deception with copy-cat Messiah`s.
«The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, “It will be for a time, times and half a time. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.”»
Every true Messianic Christian, Jew and gentile alike, knows that this Bible verse is finally manifesting it self within the Human Race. There is hardly anyone anymore who is willing to listen to the truth, and obey the Word of God.
The true followers of the Messiah who love the Jewish people and care for the state of Israel is facing stern persecution. But behold. We know we will be persecuted, and we rejoice is all the beatings and insults. Because only when we are persecuted, we do really miss Him and cry out:
«Messiah, Jesus from Nazareth. Come back soon. We desire your presence, and long for a life close to you for eternity».
The book of revelation explains to us, that it will be a badly beaten and persecuted Church that will be taken away, into the skies to meet the true Messiah:
«Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on».
The book of the Jewish Gospel writer Luke explains that this amazing event will take all of us by surprise:
«I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left».
In the Gospel according to the Jewish writer Matthew, our Master Jesus tells us about terrible times just before His return.
«At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other».
When people give up their faith, Jesus is not speaking of non-believers. He talks about people who once knew Him, but has given up hope and faith in Him.
Its a tragedy. It is its already here, happening in every nation, in every Church all over the World.
Rejoice. The return of the Messiah can take place on any given moment after you have read this. Be ready to welcome Him. Keep your lamp burning. Amen.
