The ¨Rapture¨ is a very spoken about topic and many people have different views
and many theories are formulated with lots of scripture to ¨proof¨ every one, but I
think God is not confused and there is only one truth regarding the rapture. There is
no such word as ¨Rapture¨ in Scripture and is actually the word ¨gathering¨ where
YHVH will gather His people unto Him at the end of time. Lets look at the facts and
find out what the Scripture has to say about this topic.

Yes. Rapture means "to be carried away with power."

Some believe that the Tribulation is seven years and some believe that it is three
and a half years. What does the Scripture say?
And tuo uinqs o[ c qrect ecqle uere qiten to the uomcn, so thct she might [lg into
the uilderness, into her ploce, uhere she is nourished [or o time ond times

Time (1 year), plus times (2 years), plus half a year = 3,5 years.
And [rom the time thct the dcilu sccri[ice shcll be tclen cucu, cnd the desolctinq

1290 days divided by 365.25 = 3.53 years, confirming the previous statement resulting in a three
and a half year Tribulation period, starting from the Abomination of desolation event and the
seizing of daily sacrifices. There is a seven-year period mentioned in the story of Joseph where
the first seven years will be a time of prosperity and the last seven years will be a time of famine.
The seven-year of famine is the period where everything will start to deteriorate and it will signal
the beginning of the bad times, which are to come. Within this seven-year period the tribulation
will be in full swing and will intensify during the last half of this period, which is the 3,5 years

Many people agree with the fact that there will be `a rapture´ and that there will be a
Tribulation, but there are many different views on when the Rapture will be and if
YHVH´s people will experience the Tribulation. Here are the different views:
1. Pre Tribulation Rapture
Most people believe the Pre
Tribulation Rapture where
we will be raptured at the
beginning of the Tribulation
and only the ¨bad¨ people
and the Jews will be ¨Left Behind¨ and experience it. This view is based upon a
Fiction Novel written, called ¨Left Behind¨ that dictates this view. A lot of Christians
today quote this Novel as 'truth´ to prove their view on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture.
This is the most view that is taught in most Christian Churches. The Church will be
raptured at ¨any time¨ just before the start of the 7 year Tribulation. They will return
with Christ when He will judge the earth before the 1000-years of peace.
2. Mid-Tribulation Rapture
This view supports the
fact that Y´shua will
come and fetch His
Bride in the middle of
They will miss out on
the 3,5 years of
intense tribulation. He
will return with His
Bride and with the
New Jerusalem at the
time of Judgment,
before the 1000-year
reign of peace.
3. Pre-Wrath Tribulation Rapture
This view believe that
we will go through the
Tribulation and that
we, His Bride, will be
raptured before the
great ¨day of YHVH¨
where He will come to
judge all people who
are left on the earth.
We will then spend a
thousand years, ruling
with him while the
people on the earth
will go through a
terrible time until
Judgment Day. After
the 1000-year period,
the New Jerusalem will
come down and we will
live with him forever.
4. Post Tribulation Rapture
This view is similar to
except for the returning
of Y´shua with His Bride.
They believe that He will
come back with His
Bride to rule over the
earth before the
thousand-year period of
peace. This implies that
the New Jerusalem will
descend before the
We will examine Scripture to confirm which view is the most accurate and what we
need to know to prepare for His Second Coming.

I believe that the Scripture should be used in context to see what the sequence of events will be
to signal the Rapture and the Tribulation and the Second Coming of the Messiah. Before we
begin we should adhere to the warning Y´shua gave us regarding the end times.
Mot za:11-1z ¨And mong [olse prophets sholl rise up ond leod mong
ostrog. 1z ¨And hecouse o[ the increose in LAWLESNESS (Toroh-
lesnessJ, the looe o[ mong sholl hecome cold.
This scripture is written in context of the second coming and the outlay of the events
to take place, meaning that there will be false prophets confusing the people. They
will twist the Scripture the same way Satan twisted YHVH´s first words and confuse
those who are unskilled in the Word. It is always important to have more than one
scripture confirming the statement you try to prove and you also need to read each
scripture in context to get its real meaning. Two or more witnesses always establish
truth. The scripture must be seen as a whole and one part cannot contradict another
part and the whole Scripture must form a unity.
4 4. .1 1 P Pr re e- -T Tr ri ib b- -R Ra ap pt tu ur re e - - S Sc cr ri ip pt tu ur re es s: :
Let´s look at the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine first and
the two main scriptures that are used to confirm this
:ó ßeccuse the Mcster Himsel[ shcll come doun [rom hecten uith c
shout, uith the toice o[ c chie[ messenqer, cnd uith the trumpet o[
Elohim, cnd the deod in Messioh sholl rise [irst. 1¬ Then ue, the
lioing uho ore le[t ooer, sholl he cought ouog together uith
them in the clouds to meet the Moster in the oir - cnd so ue shcll
clucus be uith the Mcster.
g1 See, I specl c secret to uou: We shcll not cll sleep, but ue shcll cll be
chcnqed, gz in c moment, in the tuinllinq o[ cn eue, ot the lost trumpet.
1or the trumpet sholl sound, ond the deod sholl he roised
incorruptihle, cnd ue sholl he chonged. gg 1or this corruptihle hos to
put on incorruption, ond this mortol to put on immortolitg.
In the first scripture there are three events that will take place in sequence:
• The Trumpet will sound first
• Then the Dead will be raised
• Then the Saints who are still alive, will be caught up (gathered) in the clouds
with the Master Y´shua (Jesus).
The scripture confirming this in 1Col 15 states:
• Last trumpet will sound
• The Dead will be raised
• The saints will be changed and receive immortal bodies
We all agree that both scriptures describe the rapture where they will meet Master
Y´shua (Jesus) in the clouds (sky) and will receive new bodies (immortality). I agree
with the rapture, but the question is; when exactly will this event take place? The
only way to find out is to get a "second witness¨.
4 4. .2 2 T Th he e T Ti im mi in ng g o of f t th he e R Ra ap pt tu ur re e
We will look at evidence that proves that the Rapture will be after the Tribulation but
before the judgment of YHVH. We get key information regarding the "timing¨ of the
rapture in the other two events described here; the trumpet will sound and the dead
will be raised. Not only do we have two scriptures that confirm these events, but we
also have the two events described within each scripture; the trumpets and the
resurrection of the dead.
These two events will take place when the last trumpet sound
and when the dead will be raised (righteous people that
Lets link these events to another place in Scripture, which
describes the same events at the same time. This will give us
perspective when the Rapture will take place. In Revelation 8 &
20, John talks about trumpets and the rising of the dead.
We can link these two because they are all in context of the last day events and the
Second Coming of Y´shua (Jesus).
Reo S:1-z And uhen He opened the seoenth seol, there ccme to be silence
in the hecten [or cbout hcl[ cn hour. z And I scu the seten messenqers uho
stcnd be[ore Elohim, ond to them uere gioen seoen trumpets.
Matthew and Revelation are written
for believers in Y´shua and not for
traditional Jews, (they had not
received the Messiah and they did
not believe the New Testament)
and will not be persecuted for His
Name. Now everybody that was
exited about the ¨Church¨ that will
not go through the Tribulation and
only the Jews - bad news - you are
mentioned here in Matt and Rev.

their [oreheods or upon their honds. And theg lioed ond

We see in Rev 8 that the trumpets will be blown AFTER the seals will be opened. This
means that the Tribulation has already started. There are seven trumpets of which
the seventh trumpet is the last trumpet. This gives strong evidence that the
tribulation will be in progress and close to its end.
In Rev 20 it mentions the resurrection of the righteous dead that did not receive the
mark of the beast and did not worship the beast. The mark of the beast definitely
happens during the tribulation and gives us evidence of the timing of the first
resurrection of the dead, which is after the receiving of the mark of the Beast. The
people that will be raised first are the people who were killed during the Tribulation
due to their witness of Y´shua and because they did not receive the mark of the
beast. This proves that the Rapture will take place at the timing of the First
Resurrection and this proves that the Rapture will not happen before the
Tribulation as everybody like to believe.
These two scriptures confirm the time slot where the rapture will take place and it is
quite clear looking at both events. The rapture will definitely not happen before the
tribulation but rather at the end or near the end of the Tribulation, just before the
final Judgement day of YHVH.

To confirm this time sequence further, let´s look at what Y´shua (Jesus) said about
the end times in Matthew 24:3-9:
g And cs He ucs sittinq on the Mount o[ Dlites, the disciples ccme to Him pritctelu,
scuinq, "Tell us, uhen uill this he, ond uhot uill he the sign o[ gour coming,
ond o[ the consummotion o[ the oge?" a And Y'shuc(1esus) cnsuered cnd scid to
them, "See to it thot no one misleods gou. g "1or mong uill come in Mg nome,
soging, '1 om the onointed one,' ond misleod mong ([olse ChristsJ . o "And

Y´shua described the birth pains of the end that is to
come. These events are currently happening and after
this, we will be hated and killed and be persecuted.
Persecution has not happened yet and I believe that this will happen during the
Persecution is part of the Tribulation as confirmed in Rev 6:9 where the 5
describes the martyrdom of the saints, and Rev 12:14 describes Satan´s followers

System in order to survive.

Only one question; where is the pre-trib-rapure mentioned here? Lets read further.
1a "And this good neus o[ the Kingdom (CospelJ sholl he procloimed in the
uhole uorld [or o testimong to oll the notions, ond then the END SHALL

"And unless those dogs hod heen shortened, no [lesh uould hooe heen sooed:
hut [or the soke o[ the elect those dogs sholl he shortened.
Who are “the elect”? Jews or Believers in Messiah? Mat 24:24 implies followers of Y’shua.
1o Mong sholl he puri[ied, ond mode uhite, ond tried. ßut the uicled shcll do

The verse in Dan12 starts with; ”many shall be purified and made white and tried (tested)…”
Thinking about this gives me the idea that the church (believers) will go through some cleansing
process - tested and purified. It is a known fact that the global “church” consisting of thousands of
denominations, some have their roots in Catholicism where pagan traditions have been mixed
with the true faith, resulting in man made religions whose diversity goes as far as man’s
imagination. How pure and white are their garments? The “Church” has to be a bit of cleansing to
do before they can be raptured, don’t you think? It is mostly these churches who teaches the
pre-trib-rapture who do not have clean garments and have defiled themselves with pagan
traditions and teach things that are not Scriptural because of false teachers as mentioned in Matt
zTi a:g-a g 1or o time uill he uhen theg uill not endure sound

The Great Tribulation will start when the Image of the Abomination of Desolation is erected in the
Holy Place (Temple Mount). If you see these things – flee out of the System (Babylon – mixing &
confusion), even if you are not in Judea because it will be a world wide Tribulation.
Did you read anything in Dan 12 that supports the Pre-Trib-Rapture theory? No! It is suppose to
happen before these events but nothing is mentioned. There is no mention of the rapture; where
the Son of Man will come on the clouds or where the trumpet sounds or where the dead are
raised (as stated in 1Tes 4 and 1 Cor 15). This will only happen 1290 days later, after the
tribulation, 3,5 years later. I know, this is not “good news” that tickles the ear and it is not a
message that is accepted by all the people. Search the Scripture and see for your self if it is the
truth. Lets read on in Matthew…

The Rapture will only happen when there will be darkness, stars fall to the earth and earthquakes
which is stated at the event of the Seventh Trumpet [Rev 16:18]. There will also be the sound of
the “last” Trumpet and then the sign or sight of the Son of Man in the heavens that will be like
lighting across the sky. THIS IS WHEN the Rapture will take place, pretty spectacular. But to top
this, these events will happen AFTER THE TRIBULATION, as stated in Matt 24.
This confirms again the timing of the rapture and that it will happen after the tribulation! This is
not good news for most Christians; they rather want to believe the fiction novel “Left Behind”
because it is the easy way out and you do not have to prepare for His Coming. They want to
believe that Jesus is Love but they can’t accept the fact that He is also the Judge.

Tribulation is YHVH’s “grace” that He gave before the Day of Judgment so that He can “shake”
the world so that people can realise that what is written in Scripture, is actually true and that He
really exist. It is also a time of “grace” to the Church, so that they can be cleansed from their
“pagan customs”, religion, false doctrines and false prophets who pervert the truth. The
Tribulation is “grace” to the world and many people will accept Y’shua as their Saviour.

The church is supposed to be part of Israel being grafted into the Olive tree through the work of
the Messiah. Every believer will be part of one of the twelve tribes of Israel and will enter into the
Gate that is made for them to enter into. Note that there is no mention of a Catholic gate,
Prespirtarion gate, Methodist gate, Charismatic gate or any other denomination mentioned
regarding the gates into the City. You can only enter in through one of the Twelve Gates and
being grafted into Israel means that you will belong to one of the Twelve Tribes. The Israelites are
descendants of Abraham (father of faith) and he was the first Hebrew who’s descendants became
the Israelites. We as believers are the “Bride” of the Messiah and He will come to “collect us”,
those who are waiting on Him and who have kept their garments clean and white with His Word.

1. The Seventh Millennium is the climax of the times and everything is symmetric
on either side. This forms the centre of a Menorah pattern. During this time there
will be the 1000-years of peace and the celebration of the Wedding Fest. The
"Bride¨ will rule over the nations that are left on the earth, who will undergo a
terrible 1000 years of testing and tribulation, called the Winepress. During this
time Satan will be bound and at the end of the 1000 years, he will be released to
deceive those on the earth. They will assemble against Jerusalem and make war
with the people in the City.
