1 Corinthians 15:20-26, “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.”
1 Corinthians 15:50-55, “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a MYSTERY; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 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. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 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. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”
Revelation 10:7, “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the MYSTERY of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.”
Revelation 11:15,18, “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”
Jesus has already fulfilled the first resurrection. Now there are only two remaining which are fully documented in Revelation. The next resurrection will take place at the seventh and last trump (Revelation 10:7; 11:15,18) for the saints. The third and final resurrection comes at the end of His thousand-year reign (Millennium), after Jesus has conquered all principalities and powers (The End) (Revelation 20:11-15).
There are no more resurrections. One is left for the saints and the other
for the sinners who have rejected Jesus.
“There is no confusion between Jesus, Paul, and John. This is when the mystery of God is executed, at the last trump. This is the moment that the dead in Christ will be raised and the righteous will be judged and rewarded. This is the exact picture that we see when the seventh angel sounds the last trump.” (Rood, Pg. 32).
It is so very clear that the Lord’s return is not imminent. The abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel, Jesus, Paul and John must happen first..
2 Thessalonians 2:3 must happen!
There must come a falling away, meaning to stand in seditious opposition or open rebellion, and the man of sin the Antichrist must appear.
So, before Jesus returns, there must come the rebellious
stand resulting in the Antichrist being revealed.
2 Thessalonians 2:4, “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” This is nearly a verbatim recitation of Daniel’s description of the kings of wickedness in chapter 11, verses 36 and 37, and the mouth, or blasphemous spokesman of the beast government in Revelation 13:5-8. The “mystery of iniquity” is Satan himself who is blinding the eyes of people, keeping them from seeing (understanding) the truth, because people are not lovers of truth as warned about in 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12.
2 Peter 3:3-8 and 2 Timothy 4:3-4 warn us about scoffers in the last days, mocking and blaspheming the truth saying, “Where is the promise of his coming?”. These Scriptures warn us that people “will not endure sound doctrine...And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” Revelation chapter 13 warns us about the rebellious stand of Antichrist. Throughout the nations today people are beginning to make this rebellious stand, blaspheming all that is holy and mocking Jesus Christ and those who align themselves with Him.
Binyamin Baruch in his book “The Day of the Lord is at Hand”, states, “The majority of modern prophecy teachers embrace a theory which they call the pre-tribulation rapture. This great deception has entered the Church at large and neutralized it. The church has been taught they will not see the final battle, but will be taken out beforehand. As a result, the Church has adopted a position of neutrality, assuming they are not involved in this final battle. This deception has rendered them useless, for they are not preparing spiritually or emotionally for the fight which is ahead.
The Scripture is clear. We are staying here through the tribulation.
We are not getting raptured out until the last day.
