The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) will return twice -
- First, "as a thief in the night" - FOR those who waited in faith ( the "Rapture")
- Second, "every eye shall see" - WITH those who waited and endured in faith.
We believe a minimum of 7 years will separate these two events . . .
The prophecies of the coming Apocalypse must be fulfilled before His return (after the "Rapture.") We are told the coming "Apocalypse" will last exactly 7 (360 day) years. We are told much will happen during this period of time which will separate the "Rapture" when Jesus (Yeshua), the Messiah, will return for those who wait in faith ("as a thief in the night") from His return to rule and to reign ("and every eye shall see") at the very end of the coming "Apocalypse" to save the remnant of Israel from the armies of the world which will one day gather against her ...
The Bible Prophecies . . .
Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) warns first there will be false Prophets and messiahs who will rise. However, Jesus says when He returns there will be no question it is Him. When He again steps forth from Eternity every eye will see Him "coming in the clouds" with millions from Heaven, in power and great glory . . .
"Then if anyone says to you,
‘Look, here is the Messiah (Christ)!’ or ‘There!’
Do NOT believe it!
For false messiahs (christs) and false prophets will arise
and show great signs and wonders (miracles!)
so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
See, I have told you beforehand." (Meaning ... this is a prophecy)
"Therefore if they say to you,
Look, He is in the desert!’
Do not go out;
or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’
Do not believe it.
For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west,
so also will the coming of the Son of Man be."
"Behold, He is coming with clouds,
and every eye will see Him, (not as a "thief in the night" this time)
even they who pierced Him.
And all the tribes of the Earth will mourn because of Him . . ."
Messiah (Christ) Returns:
He has told us to wait for Him in faith ... He has told us to warn others.
"Therefore wait for Me," says the LORD,
Until the day I rise up to plunder (attack the prey);
My determination is to gather the nations
to My assembly of kingdoms,
to pour on them My indignation,
all My fierce anger (during the coming "Apocalypse"... the "Great Tribulation");
all the Earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy.
For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language,
(for the first time since the Tower of Babel in ancient Babylon)
that they all may call on the Name of the LORD,
to serve Him with one accord."
"Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven,
and then all the tribes of the Earth will mourn,
and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven
with power and great glory."
The Lord comes with ten thousands (millions) of His saints (believing Christians),
to execute judgment on all,
to convict all who are ungodly among them
of all their ungodly deeds
which they have committed in an ungodly way,
and of ALL the harsh things
which ungodly sinners
have spoken against HIM (Jesus Christ ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew).’"
The LORD will come with fire and with His chariots,
like a whirlwind (a global hurricane of fire),
to render His anger with fury,
and His rebuke with flames of fire.
For by fire and by His sword the LORD will judge ALL flesh;
and the slain of the LORD shall be many."
(Isaiah 66:15-16) (Jesus warns, "As in the days of Noah"... and only 8 people were saved.)
"Thus says the LORD of Armies (Hosts):
Disaster shall go forth from nation to nation ...
And at that Day the slain of the LORD
shall be from one end of the Earth
even to the other end of the Earth . . ." (Nobody will escape God's wrath after the coming "Rapture")
"The Earth is violently broken,
(the Earth will reel under the power of His return)
the Earth is split open,
the Earth is shaken exceedingly.
The Earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard,
and shall totter like a hut;
its transgression shall be heavy upon it,
and it will fall, and not rise again."
"I was watching in the night visions,
and behold, One like the Son of Man, (Jesus Christ ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)
coming with the clouds of Heaven!
He came to the Ancient of Days,
and they brought Him near before Him.
Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom,
that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion,
which shall NOT pass away,
and HIS Kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed."
"And in that Day (the "Day of the Lord")
His feet (Jesus Christ ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)
will stand on the Mount of Olives,
which faces Jerusalem on the east.
And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two,
from east to west . . .
It shall come to pass in that day
that there will be no light;
the lights will diminish.
It shall be one day which is known to the LORD,
neither day nor night.
But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light." (Awesome!)
(Zechariah 14:4, 6, 7)
"And I will pour on the house of David
and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem
the Spirit of grace and supplication;
then they will look on Me whom they have pierced;
they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son,
and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn."
"Now it shall come to pass in the latter days . . .
He shall judge between the nations,
and rebuke many people;
they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war anymore."
(There will be no lasting peace in Israel or on Earth until Messiah returns)
"At that time Jerusalem (the same Jerusalem you see on the news)
shall be called the Throne of the LORD,
and all the nations shall be gathered to it,
to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem.
No more shall they follow the dictates of their evil hearts."
"He will be great,
and will be called the Son of the Highest;
and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.
And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever,
and of His Kingdom there will be no end."
"From Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew),
the faithful witness,
the firstborn from the dead, (speaking of His Resurrection)
and the Ruler over the kings of the Earth.
To Him who loved us
and washed us from our sins in His own blood,
and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father,
to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Behold, He is coming with clouds,
and every eye will see Him,
even they who pierced Him.
(not as a "thief in the night" this time)
And all the tribes of the Earth will mourn because of Him.
Even so, Amen."
He will return with millions and millions of those who believed and waited in faith . . .
"And they sang a new song, saying:
‘You (Jesus ...Yeshua) are worthy to take the scroll,
and to open its seals;
for You were slain,
and have redeemed us to God by Your blood
out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
And have made us kings and priests to our God;
and we shall reign on the Earth.’
Then I looked,
and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne,
the living creatures, and the elders;
and the number of them was
ten thousand times ten thousand,
and thousands of thousands,
(these represent millions upon millions of faithful believers)
saying with a loud voice:
‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
to receive power and riches and wisdom,
and strength and honor and glory and blessing!’"
Awesome . . .
"Now I saw Heaven opened, and behold, a white horse.
And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True,
and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
His eyes were like a flame of fire,
and on His head were many crowns.
He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood,
and His Name is called The Word of God.
And the armies in Heaven, clothed in fine linen,
white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword,
that with it He should strike the nations.
And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron.
He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness
and wrath of Almighty God.
And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS."
Please remember . . .
The Kingdom of Heaven is available to every man, woman, boy, and girl in this world, no matter who they are, where they live, or what they have done. It is freely offered to any and all who will receive it. Simply learn of Jesus (Yeshua), the promised Messiah of Israel, invite Him into your life as Lord, believe He died on the Cross for all of your sins and rose from the grave (proving there is a Kingdom of Heaven ... and a Hell). Learn of Him and believe in Him . . . for He was the only one who has ever loved you enough to substitute Himself for you on the Cross (which represents Hell). He shed His blood, suffered, and died on the Cross to save you from your sins and from the utter darkness and torment of Hell, if you will accept it, believe it, and trust in it. That is why Jesus is called Savior. He now lovingly and graciously offers you life in Heaven (and we are warned it is a "take it or leave it" proposition.) We have to consciously receive it and accept it in faith. If you sincerely admit you have sinned (which means you need a Savior to get into Heaven) and ask Jesus (Yeshua) to come into your life and honestly try to stop doing (and saying) those things God says are wrong, you will go to Heaven ... and with open arms and tears of joy He will receive all who will come to Him in faith and in love ... It's God's Promise!!!
The only unpardonable sin is to reject God's love and His free offer of life in the Kingdom of Heaven by rejecting Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) who stepped forth from Eternity ("from of old, from everlasting"... see Micah 5:2) ... not to condemn the sinner, but to save the sinner (from Hell) and who willingly and lovingly shed His blood on the Cross so we can be "washed clean" of all our sins. The Bible warns there will be no peace in our lives until we make peace with God through His Son, Jesus (Yeshua), the promised Messiah.
The Bible also warns there will be no peace in Israel or on Earth until Jesus (Yeshua), the Messiah returns . . .
Grace and Shalom
