A SPOTLESS BRIDE RISES TO MEET A DECENDING BRIDEGROOM
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.
