Rapture/Tribulation/Second Coming

Tribulation, Rapture, Second Coming:
Spiritual Messiah Christianity believes Jesus will come back in the Spiritual and Physical. Jesus will return mid-Tribulation and again at the end of Tribulation. Jesus’ mid-Tribulation return will be to “save” His people. However, Spiritual Messiah does not believe in the mainstream belief of the Rapture belief created in the 1800’s. The Bible does not suggest there will be no Christians in the world.
Revelation 7:3-8 KJV
Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.
8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
Revelation 7:14 KJV
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Those that are devout will be taken up to be with Jesus and the Father in Heaven. The 144,000 sealed imply that there will be Christians still upon the surface of the Earth during Satans Rule. These 144,000 sealed will keep God’s Word alive and spreading. For if the 144,000 are sealed and cannot be harmed, how else would there be martyrs in Christ’s name unless Christians were still present and souls being saved?
Revelation 6:9-11
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

The 1800’s belief of the Rapture, that became mainstream belief, has no Biblical support whatsoever.
Definition of Rapture:
American Heritage Dictionary:
1. The state of being transported by a lofty emotion; ecstasy.
2. An expression of ecstatic feeling. Often used in the plural.
3. The transporting of a person from one place to another, especially to heaven.
Collins English Dictionary:
1. the state of mind resulting from feelings of high emotion; joyous ecstasy
2. (often plural) an expression of ecstatic joy
3. the act of transporting a person from one sphere of existence to another, esp from earth to heaven
Etymology:
“act of carrying off,” from M.Fr. rapture, from M.L. raptura “seizure, rape, kidnapping,” from L. raptus “a carrying off” (see rapt). Originally of women and cognate with rape (v.). Sense of “spiritual ecstasy” first recorded 1620s.

Based on the definition and etymology of the word Rapture, the fact that Rapture Theology was created in the 1800’s, and the fact that we are spiritual beings experiencing a time in a physical body and the fact we are not of this world (Rev. 15:18-21 KJV – If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.); The mainstream belief of the Rapture, and in turn Second Coming, is wrong and not Biblically sound. The “rapture” will be a mass-awakening. During the Rapture we will see the most conversions to the one true God, Jesus Christ, in history. This will begin in mid-Tribulation. At the end of Tribulation, Jesus Christ will lead His army against Satan in the “War to end all Wars”. This war will be in both the physical AND spiritual. Each and every one of us are soldiers in Christ’s army and will be taking part in this final war.
