Israel News from Tsiyon
This week we were getting questions about the pre-trib rapture
theory. Here is an example.
Listener - I was wondering what scriptures you
would site that deny a pre-tribulation rapture or any
rapture for that matter. Also, when God returns with
the Saints in Armageddon who are the saints if they
aren't people risen during a rapture?
Tsiyon Answer - The historic
position of the earliest believers is that the dead in Messiah
are raised at His Return at the end of the Tribulation. This is
based on multiple verses in Scripture, not the least of which
are Messiah's own words:
"And immediately after the
tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened and
the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall
from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be
shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man shall appear
in the heavens. And then all the tribes of the earth
shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming
in the clouds of the heaven with power and great glory. And
He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet,
and they shall gather His elect from the four winds,
from one end of the heavens to the other." Matt 24:29-31
Y'shua here states plainly that His
Return occurs "immediately after the
tribulation." After means "after" - not "before the
tribulation" as the pre-tribulation rapture theory would
have us believe. Messiah here states there will be a "great
sound of a trumpet" at that time, and "the elect" will then
be gathered to Him.
This agrees with other verses. For
example, Paul wrote:
"Behold, I speak a mystery to you; we
shall not all fall asleep, but we shall all be changed; in a
moment, in a glance of an eye, at the last trumpet.
For a trumpet shall sound, and the dead [in
Messiah] shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall all
be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption,
and this mortal must put on immortality." 1Cor 15:51-53
Paul's words agree perfectly with
those of Messiah above. The glorification of all of those in
Messiah - whether raised from the dead at that time, or
still alive and "changed" at that time - occurs at the last
trumpet. It is self-evident that if the "last trumpet"
were to sound before the tribulation there could not then be
another "last" trumpet "immediately after the tribulation."
The trumpet Messiah spoke of "after the tribulation" must
therefore be the same as the "last trumpet" Paul spoke of,
which signals the glorification of the elect of all ages -
including those still alive when it happens. The Bible
doesn't use the word "rapture" but the idea of a catching up
of the then-newly-glorified believers is clearly in view in
Paul speaks of this again to the

we donít want you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning those who
have fallen asleep, so that you donít grieve like the rest, who
have no hope. For if we believe that Yeshua died and rose again,
even so God will lead with him those who have fallen asleep in
Yeshua. For this we tell you by the word of the Lord, that we
who are alive, who are left to the coming of the Lord, will in
no way precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord
himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the
voice of the archangel, and with Godís shofar [trumpet]. The
dead in Messiah will rise first, then we who are alive, who are
left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to
meet the Lord in the air. So we will be with the Lord
forever. Therefore comfort one another with these words." 1Thess
Again we have a trumpet - "God's Shofar
[Trumpet]" at the glorification of the living and the dead in
Messiah, at the time of His Return. This has to be the "last
trumpet" signaling the end of the age. At that time all of
the then-glorified elect will be "caught up together" in the
clouds "to meet the Lord in the air." From then forward "we will
be with the Lord forever."
In this translation I have corrected the
word usually translated as "bring" - usually seen in the phrase
"bring with him." According to Strong's Greek Dictionary this
word, G71 "ago" literally means "A primary verb; properly to
lead." In other words, once raised and "caught up" to "meet the
Lord in the air" Messiah will "lead" these elect. Where does He
"lead" them? To begin with, He will lead them into battle!
Revelation speaks of the nations of the "Beast" who are gathered
at Megiddo to destroy Jerusalem. "These will war against the
Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for he is Lord of lords,
and King of kings. They also will overcome who are with him,
called and chosen and faithful.Ē Rev 17:14
After defeating the enemy forces with
Messiah the glorified elect will return with Messiah to
Jerusalem, where "we will reign on earth" with Him. Rev. 5:10
How exciting that all of this will come in
Final thoughts: Friends, we are living in the last
generation, when all that has been foretold is rapidly coming into
fulfillment. It is exciting to see Yah moving and working in His
remnant people in these days. Our program this week gives evidence
of the work He is doing in the lives and hearts of His individual
remnant people. I think you will find a resonance in your own heart
as you listen to this week's program.
Blessings to you and yours in Messiah's Name.
