The Rapture Was A Mystery

The Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:51 says the rapture was a MYSTERY.  “BEHOLD, I SHEW YOU A MYSTERY”  Paul was taught all doctrine for the gentiles/body of Christ by Jesus Himself as direct instruction for YOU and I.  To reject Paul’s teaching or combine it with Jesus’ words to Israel under their program in Matthew Mark Luke and John may sound like.a spiritual thing to do but it is like the sacrifice of Cain.  Religious sacrifice not according to what God said in your program that you live in. 

I have found that most all who believe in a post-tribulation rapture also believe in some heresy form of works based salvation.......we know if they are trusting in their own righteousness for SALVATION  instead of the death, burial, and resurrection  of Jesus then that is a very scary place to be as you own works cannot save you or keep you saved (Galatians 1:8-9 KJV, Entire book of Galatians is about this heresy), and leads to understanding why they are getting the timing of the rapture wrong also.  If they claim to not be for works based salvation they could still be in  error biblically beyond just the timing of the rapture.  Here is biblically why I say this.  

The rapture is NOT found in Matthew or Revelation.  Most of Churchianity is convinced it is.  Want to know why the rapture is not in Matthew or Revelation? Because the rapture is part of the mystery of the body of Christ that Jesus revealed only to the Apostle Paul and this reveal was obviously after the cross and after Acts 9. It was not part of the kingdom/circumcision program that was in place when Jesus was on earth in his ministry. Jesus made it clear who he was preaching to. Israel. You are NOT Israel. The church program which included the rapture was not revealed until He revealed it to the Apostle Paul after the cross and after Paul's conversion.  2 Tim 2:15 KJV  You have to rightly divide the bible and when you do there are no more conflicts or confusions. Including the rapture.  The rapture is pre-tribulation and for those that trust ONLY in the death burial and resurrection of Jesus for salvation.  It could happen at any time.  After the rapture, the dispensation of the body of Christ has ended and God shall resume Israel’s prophetic program (Romans 9-11 KJV).  The books of Hebrew through Revelation are direct instruction for the during that time of tribulation and judgment on the world.  Gentiles do not realize how much EASIER it is for them to be saved now, in the time of the gentiles/church age. 

The Simple Gospel That Saves:

While we can learn things about God in every book of the bible, in order to understand which books of the bible are direct instruction TO us we need to rightly divide the word of God - 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV. Once you rightly divide the word of God by simply understanding who God was speaking to in each book it removes any conflicting scriptures , difficult verses and unlocks the beauty, freedom, and peace of God’s amazing love and grace and eternal life/salvation in heaven made available freely to us ( Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV ) by the death burial and resurrection of Jesus , without the need for religion or doing good works (cleaning up your life) BEFORE you can be saved. Simply believe/trust the gospel Jesus gave Paul for the church / body of Christ ( 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV) for salvation in this time of the dispensation of grace that will end without notice with the rapture. When you do, you have full assurance of salvation and are sealed until the rapture. Then study Paul’s epistles Romans through Philemon to learn and grow in your new exciting identity and hope of a future you cannot fathom how great it will be.  We were created by God to live with Him in harmony in heaven and heaven will be better in ways we cannot imagine or comprehend and it will not be boring, we will have roles and responsibilities. He intends to restore EXACTLY that for those who accept His free and gracious offer of reconciliation through the death burial and resurrection of His son.  Trust that and NOTHING else. Because that is the only thing that saves you and keeps you saved. What Jesus did. NOT what you do. Not your church, your pastor, your good works, your heart, your feelings, you perceiving yourself to be a good enough person on your own , going to mass, and whatever other man made religious attempts to earn your own righteousness that you can never achieve.  Salvation is by what Jesus did not what you do.

In the books of Matthew Mark Luke and John , Jesus himself said He was speaking to Israel under their program.  You are not Israel.    That program with Israel was put on hold due to their rejection of Jesus   (Romans 9-11 KJV) But God had a plan for victory before creation , a mystery hidden in God and hidden from ages and generations and from the “princes of this world” and satan (Ephesians 3:8-10 KJV) while Jesus converted and revealed this mystery of the dispensation of the grace of God to the Apostle Paul (starting in Acts 9 KJV) ,  part of which is the new creature, the church, the body of Christ, a program distinct from Israel's program in the Old testament and Matthew Mark Luke and John, which were to Israel.   Paul is our Apostle for the church today in this age of grace JUST as Moses was to Israel with the law …..and the 12 apostles Jesus converted during his earthly ministry will judge the twelve tribes of Israel - NOT THE BODY OF CHRIST - you see clearly that ISRAEL’s program and the church/body of Christ program are two different messages/ gospels.  Everyone wants to make Jesus words in Matthew Mark Luke John the new law even though they do NOT actually obey a fraction of it.  Jesus himself said He was talking to Israel. YOU ARE NOT ISRAEL.  Acts 15 KJV and Galatians 1-2 KJV clearly show that Peter had the gospel to the circumcision Israel and Paul had the gospel of a different program to the gentiles or the uncircumcision….. Paul is our apostle for the church commissioned by Jesus.  Genesis through Mid book of Acts Chapters 9-15 KJV (Paul’s conversion) is about Israel's program with God before it was put on hold with Israel's rejection of Jesus.   Now we can learn from those books however Romans through Philemon are our direct and only instruction given by Jesus to the gentiles for the church age of grace until the rapture (which will occur next and without notice).   After the rapture, Israel's program will RESUME ( Romans 9-11 KJV ) and the books of Hebrews through Revelation will be instruction for all during the tribulation, which will be the most difficult, UNCOMFORTABLE 7 years the earth has ever seen. ( Revelations 9:6 KJV  And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.)   God's desire for you now is to be reconciled to HIM and to receive His forgiveness right now for your past, present, and future sins, and to spend eternity with Him in love and heaven as this world was originally intended to be !! No sin, sorrow, or pain !!!   

Trust/believe in the gospel that saves today - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV
Then study Romans through Philemons to grow in God’s grace !!

Lastly if you ask why this has not been taught by mainstream Christian religions/denominations/churches in buildings…….. when it is right in the Bible….well here is why :

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 KJV
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Trust/believe in the gospel that saves today - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV
Then study Romans through Philemons to grow in God’s grace !!

Grace and peace !!!
