TESTING A “TWO-FOLD RETURN” AGAINST SCRIPTURAL DECLARATIONS OF “THAT DAY” [SINGULAR]
Prior to this obvious Illuminati conspiracy to concoct the rapture dogma and the other doctrines of the “Israeli Timeline,” the word ‘rapture,’ which is nowhere to be found in the Bible in this context, was unknown to believers.
In fact, the truth of the entire Bible was, and always will be all about “The gathering of the saints” at “the return of Jesus on That Day,” [singular,] (Mt. 24:31; Mark 13:26-27; Luke 21:25-28; 1 Ths. 4:13-18; 5:1-6.)
Hence, throughout Scripture, Jesus and His Bible writers always spoke of “That Day,” “This Day,” “The Day,” “His Day,” “The Great Day,” “The Last Day,” “His Appearing,” “His Coming,” “His return;” [all singular.] Even in the Old Testament, which is an “example” to New Covenant believers, (1 Cor. 10:11,) That Day of Jesus’ return was never a two-fold return. It was always “The Day” of His single, visible return on the clouds “just as He went into heaven,” [singular; Acts 1:9-11,] at His Midnight Cry, [singular; 1 Ths. 4:16-20; 5:1-11; 1 Cor. 15:51-55,] and at the “gathering together” [singular; Mt. 24:30-31,] of the bride of Christ, [singular; Mt. 25:1-13,] who, when the seventh and last trumpet sounds, [Rev. 11:15; singular,] will attend the Marriage Supper with the Bridegroom in heaven, [singular; Rev. 19:6-9; Ps. 50:5.]
Þ Jesus prophesied “That Day” even in Dan. 7:13, “I was watching… and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven!” No mention of a two-fold return of Jesus here either.
TESTING THE MAIN VERSES, SEPARATED FROM EACH OTHER, THE MEANING, AND SEQUENCE OF THE PASSAGE, TO SUPPORT THE RAPTURE OR SO-CALLED “TWO-FOLD RETURN” OF JESUS
Illuminati agents alienated the two connected verses in Mt. 24:27 and Mt. 24:30, as well as the two similar verses in Lu. 17:24 and Lu. 21:27 from each other, and the meaning and sequence of these two passages, to make them into “two separate returns of Jesus.” This was another clever move to deceive Jesus’ believers into accepting their “two-fold” rapture-return doctrine. Yet, the contextual truth of Scripture totally refutes this well-planned deception.
1. Although rapture-adherents read the whole Bible from this point of view, their so-called “proof” of Jesus’ “first return or the secret rapture” rests on only two similar verses in the Bible, where it is written in Lu. 17:24, “[During great, end-time church deception, be careful not to believe and follow deceivers, (Lu. 24:21-23.)] For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His Day…” And in Mt. 24:21-26, “[During a time of immense church tribulation through deception… (Mt. 24:27,)] As the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Mt. 24:28, For wherever the carcass [of spiritually dead, church believers] is, there the vultures, [greedy false teachers and prophets,] will be gathered together…”
Þ Note that in both these similar verses in different Gospels, this lightning bolt “flashes” visibly and “shines” globally. Yet, these two parallel verses were twisted out of their meaning and context to sound like Jesus’ “secret, unseen, first return;” the so-called rapture. Except for “dark lighting,” which consists of powerful radiation pulses that only occur in the clouds, lightning flashes in the sky cannot be “invisible,” and do not occur “in secret.” What’s more, the sentence structure and comparisons in these two verses, (“as lightning;” “so also”) make it clear that this is a figure of speech or allegory of Jesus’ actual, singular return, as clearly described in the sequence of the next verses, (Mt. 24:29-31.)
Þ This lighting flash, like the metaphor of the “thief that comes in the night,” does not represent “secrecy.” In reality, both these allegories symbolize Jesus’ unexpected (not secret) return, (Mt. 24:44.) The metaphor of the lightning flash is a serious warning that the omnipresent Jesus will return as “suddenly,” (Mark 13:36; Mt. 24:44,) and as visibly as a lightning strike that can be seen at the same time by everyone on earth, (Lu. 17:24; Mt. 24:27.) His return will be so unexpected because, while people are continuing with their sinful lives as if Jesus will never return, (as the people did in the days of Noah and Lot, Mt. 24:36-42; Mark 13:32-37; Lu. 17:26-37,) Jesus will suddenly appear in full sight of everyone on earth. “What A Day of surprises it will be, That Day [singular] when we all see Jesus!”
2. Next, masonic agents erroneously changed Jesus’ detailed description of the way in which He will return, into their alleged “second part of the rapture dogma; His ‘visible’ return,” when He will supposedly come to “collect those who were ‘left behind’ at the rapture.”
A) However, directly after the lightning-strike allegory in Mt. 24:26-28, the Word unmistakably states in Mt. 24:29, “Immediately after the great tribulation... [when global, spiritual darkness through deception descends upon the earth like never before, which will manifest on the physical plane as cosmic disturbances... It will be during this completely dark time, devoid of any truth in a world that will be overcome by fear, panic, and hopelessness, that the five foolish virgins will frantically seek ‘oil for their lamps’ (or truth to repent from deception,) so they can get ready for Jesus’ return, but it will be too late for them. The Bridegroom will come “at midnight,” when there is no light or truth, and no time left to repent from sin, (Mt. 25:5-13.)
B) Mt. 24:30, Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven... [as] every eye will see Him return on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. [Just as He promised He would return on the clouds at His ascension, Acts 1:9-11.)
C) Mt. 24:31, And [only “after” every eye sees Him return on the clouds,] He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect [His inseparable, holy body or bride] from the four winds, [the whole earth;] from one end of heaven to the other,” (1 Ths. 4:16-18; 5:1-6; Rev. 11:15.)
Þ Yet, these crafty deceivers also twist Lu. 21:27 into a so-called “second return of Jesus.” This verse states, “[After the great tribulation, verses 25-26,] they will see the Son of Man coming on a cloud with power and great glory,” [just as it was prophesied when the disciples saw Him ascend, Acts 1:9-11.] This verse too, was cut away from the context of Lu. 17:22-37, which warns believers that Jesus will return as unexpectedly or suddenly as in the days of Noah and Lot, (Lu. 21:34-36; Mark 13:36; Mt. 24:44.)
The Book of John is quiet about Jesus’ return.
However, Mark 13:21-37 omit the allegory of Jesus’ sudden return as visible as a lightning bolt, which can be seen globally. Mark plainly states in Chapter 13:19-23, “[During the time of great church deception,]
A) Mark 13:24-25, [...There will be great spiritual darkness on the whole earth, symbolized by unbelievable changes in the cosmos such as physical darkness.]
B) Mark 13:26, Then they will see [Jesus] coming on the clouds with great power and glory.
C) Mark 13:27, [And only then] He will send His angels to gather together His elect [His bride] from the four winds, from the farthest part of the earth to the farthest part of heaven.
This concurring, detailed description of when and how Jesus will return, is His global, once-off return as also described in 1 Ths. 4:15-18; 5:1-6. 1 Cor. 15:51-55 says it will happen “in the twinkling of an eye.”
Þ The context, meaning, and sequence of these verses, which the Illuminati shuffled so slyly, as well as all the other related passages in the Gospels and Epistles, form an unshakable testimony to prove that the allegory of the “lightning strike” and Jesus’ actual return after the great tribulation speak of the same return. This is the Scriptural return of Jesus; there exists no other either logically or in Scripture.
THE RAPTURE TIMELINE: BEFORE OR DURING THE SO-CALLED ‘7-YEAR’ TRIBULATION?
If the ‘church’ will be “raptured before, or in the middle of the great tribulation,” why would “the Great Tribulation be shortened for the sake of the true saints?” And why would Jesus warn us so sternly not to run after false teachers and prophets who call themselves “prophets and christs,” doing false signs, miracles and wonders, which constitute the most important part of the Great Tribulation, according to the context of Jesus’ return? (Mt. 24:21-31.) It is significant that one can hardly find any truth nowadays by browsing the internet. All “light” is being snuffed out by the explosion of the most incredible kinds of deception, (Mt. 24:29.)
We don’t have to guess when the escalating “great tribulation” will take place, and when Jesus will return during that time, (Mt. 24:15-31.) Matthew, Mark, John in the Book of Revelation, from the context of two whole passages in the Book of Luke, and the rest of New Testament Scripture, all state that Jesus will return [singular] for His true believers “after the great tribulation.”
Þ Mark 13:24-27, “...But in those days, after the tribulation, [during great spiritual darkness when no one will be able to find the truth, (Mt. 25:1-13,) ] they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds with great power and glory. And then He will send His angels to gather together His [bride] from the four winds, from the farthest part of the earth to the farthest part of heaven…” Again, this is not the so-called “second coming of Jesus.” This is That Day when He will return on the clouds exactly as He promised He would in Acts 1:9-11.
Þ Mt. 24:29-44; 25:46-31 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days… the... Son of Man will appear in heaven... (1 Ths. 4:16; Mt. 24:40.)”
Þ Rev. 19:1-9, ‘After these things… [the seven scales, seven bowls and six trumpet judgments, when the seventh and last trumpet sounds, Rev. 11:15,] I heard the voice of a great multitude… saying, “Alleluia!... for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready… ” (1 Ths. 4:16.)
Þ Lu.17:24-37, “[After all these things that [are already happening, which are like the days of Noah and Lot,] from verse 7, “which will make men’s hearts fail with fear,” Jesus declared in verse 27,] “They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds with power and great glory…”
Þ Mt. 24:21-26, “Unless those days [of the great tribulation] were shortened [for the sake of the true believers, “the elect,” Mt. 24:22-26;] no flesh will be saved, [because of the severity of countless multilevel onslaughts on believers and on all of humanity.]”
