IT’S WILL BE TIME FOR THE SHOUT WHEN THE TRUMPET SOUNDS SO LOUD THAT IT AWAKES THE DEAD. It will be undescribable joy for this persecuted Bride to leave the world behind. The Rapture will probably be different from the normal explanation we have heard through the years. The powerful announcement we read in the Gospel of Matthew may be the true form to expect. ” Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.”(Matthew 27:50-53) If the resurrected dead are seen walking the streets then the raptured living may do the same. However, the Rapture and the Resurrection may occur, it will be spectacular.

This event will be the greatest display of sheer Holy Ghost power and glory ever witnessed by this world. I believe God will make a “Shew” of the Raptured Saints just like He did at Christs’ Resurrection. Instead of all the multitude simply disappearing their glorified bodies will be seen by a large number of people. There will be witnesses all over the world that the God of the Bible has sent His Son to get His Bride. Our magnificent bodies will be the talk of the Left Behind and disappointed crowd. Remember that Noah’s generation watched in sorrow while Noah and the Ark sailed away in safety. The host of people who laughed at Noah and shamed his labour saw the triumph of a faith that believed and obeyed God.

Our great Jehovah God made a “Shew” of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and left behind an empty tomb. Christ appeared to His followers and an even greater crowd at His ascension into heaven. The Holy Ghost said, “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” (Colossians 2:15) All the Political leaders and Jewish religious apostates were utterly embarrassed by the proof of who Christ really was. His great victory from the Tomb and the continuing reports of His presence left no one without proof that God was in Christ and His death and resurrection was an event that could not be denied.

The Population of all Israel could not have missed the impact of the empty graves and testimonies of those who saw the departed saints and heard their witness about this Jesus. The Rapture will occur on schedule and leave behind the same conternation all over the world. Nothing will ever be the same again. Look at what Peter said by the Holy Ghost and reported in his Epistle. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? (II Peter 3:10-12)

The great truth about Satan being cast out of heaven almost simultaneous with the Rapture is enough to alarm anyone that might expect to be left. Things are not going to continue as normal. The war in Heaven between Satan anal his demons and dark spirits will totally alter the mood of our world. Satan and every demon will be confined to this earth and the Bible gives us a very clear warning that things will take on a dark foreboding. Listen to the Lord’s warning. “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe 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.” (Revelation 12:12)

I must tell you that the excellant beauty of this moment is the glory of our new bodies. Apostle Paul called these new bodies, “A New House.” “For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven”. (II Corinthians 5:1-2) The glory of this event is set in the Holy Scripture and no amount of unbelief will change it. You can go or stay, it’s your choice.

  1. I hadn’t considered the possibility of the “left behind” people getting a glimpse of the resurrected saints. Perhaps only those who are “still on the fence” will get to see them, or at least understand what they are experiencing while the rest of the world remains just as clueless as it is today because if they did, the Antichrist would never be able to fool them into accepting him as world ruler and taking his mark.

    Here is another thought. The Bible tells us our change will occur in a “moment” of time (1 Corinthians 15:52). The word used is “atomos” which indicates an indivisible unit of time. (Just as an atom was once thought to be an indivisible unit of matter, which is how it got its name.)

    Will this instantaneous physical disappearance of the living saints produce a worldwide thunderclap as the air rushes in to fill the void of their departed bodies? This, of course, is pure speculation on my part, but it is an interesting possibility.

    What I think is true is that we are about to find out the answers to all of our questions very soon.

  2. Oh Pastor Joe, Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    This has got to be one the very best sermons yet!
    I pray that your description of this right on the nail head.
    All Glory To GOD…

    I see this as a last gift to those who will come to Christ after The Rapture!
    I would love for The Rapture play out exactly as you have described it.


  3. Brother Chambers, I don’t care if the anti-christ is alive today I don’t care who he is nor what he looks like. . I’m looking for the Almighty One of Israel. The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ my Saviour , My King !!!

  4. brother chambers;
    please preach a more balanced gospel yes jesus is comming soon
    and no one knows the day or the hour but how about the multitudes who die
    lost today you are not preaching a balanced gospel about life after death
    heb 9-27 it is appointed unto man once to die than the judgement. jesus spoke
    more abou hell than heaven, one more thing stop pleading for people to give
    to your ministry if do are struggling financially you will start becoming like
    the fake prosperity preachers on tv.

  5. Charles,

    Please show some respect and learn that what Pastor is teaching is true and uplifting. We who are saved need encouragement in our walks with Christ and the things we deal with here on Earth. I hope that we will be seen by those who are left behind so that they perhaps will turn their lives to Christ and not accept the mark, thereby inheriting eternal torment and separation from God!

  6. Brother Joseph, I like what Mr Ed Wood’s has written (all our questions will be answered very soon)

    1, The church The Body of Christ is taken up in the Rapture and does not enter into the Tribulation period at all.

    2, The church “does” go through the Tribulation period but is taken off the earth just before the Lord Jesus comes to deal with the earth.

    If the latter is true, we are “not” prepared for it, we will not know what to do. There is some very scarey teachings in Revelation concerning the saints were the whore and antichrist are concerned. Some of us know full well what is going to take place during that period, but not what is going to happen to us the Body of Christ. Untold numbers of saints will be killed by the antichrist and the whore.

  7. Arthur Rodricks

    Very good sermon.

    The lukewarm christians will see the warm christians depart and understand that they weren’t raptured because they were lukewarm.

    The jews and unbelievers will view it as a scientific event,
    for example, highly advanced aliens came in and kidnapped the warm christians.
    The antichrist will then fool the jews and unbelievers. Then some jews and some lukewarm christians, will understand the truth, in the middle of the 7 years of tribulation.

    We need to be on fire for our Lord & Saviour Jesus, and look forward to the rapture, as you’ve rightly described.

  8. I don’t know how it could be possible for anyone to see the glorification of the saints since it’s supposed to happen in the ‘Twinkling Of An Eye.’ People would have to be looking mighty sharply to catch that glimpse. Just thought I’d throw that out there. Great story though, and I can’t wait for that blessed day.

  9. “Then shall two be in the field; the one taken, and the other left” (Matthew 24:40). The great catching away will be the great discriminator. At that moment, all speculation will be over. “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh” (Matthew 24:44). Live like you ought to, “In all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming day of God” (2 Peter 3:11-12). And, “Be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:14). Listen! I think I hear wedding music!

  10. Dear Pastor,

    Good points in your article, same with Ed’s I have always wondered about the Saints that walked the streets of Jerusalem, for how long and who was able to see them? Just gonna wait and the Lord Jesus will reveal many things to us.

    P.S. Noah was taken at the end of the old world but not exactly at the end, so why should we challenge the rapture if it is pre-trib or pre judgement. If we go right to the end before the rapture then who would be saved alive? The Lord Jesus demands compassion and not sacrifice.
    God Bless

  11. Sorry if I was misunderstood in reference to 2 Peter 3:10-11. Peter is saying to his readers who were the redeemed and of like precious faith, “I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance.” His readers then as well as now must not forget that at the on set of the Day of the Lord beginning with the Rapture and jusgment with Great Tribulation following (in Cpt. 3 he describes both), that thay (we) must be diligent and found of Him in peace without spot and blameless. Seeing then that all these things are going to happen, “what manner of persons ought ye to be.” Peter answers that question for us. However, “the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night,”then the “heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therin shall be burned up.” These are not “left-behind” people that Peter is writing to stir up their pure minds.”

    Thanks Brother Chambers for continually reminding us and stirring up our minds as well.

  12. Hey Bro. Chambers Thank you for this article it stirred up my spirit, theres a harvest out there we HAVE T0 REACH and we don’t have long! But I do have one questions, what did you mean when you said: Multitudes will inherit the New Heaven and The New Earth but the Bride of Christ will inherit New Jerusalem. Does that mean only some people in heaven will live in Jerusalem and have mansions and others will just have a new earth?? I’m a little confused on what you meant.
    Thanks so much. God Bless!
