Nr. 361:

Need larger church of God pastors and preachers gifts? Or should every believer redeem their potential and use the gift every believer has received? Part 2

When I grew up, I was on several occasions in the Sharon Valley and heard several preachers there who prophesied of great revivals. Among other the false prophet Aril Edvardsen yourself, Pastor Cho of South Korea, Richard Roberts from the USA who is the son of Oral Roberts (he's divorced and re-married as believers) and many more. When nothing happened so than solved this "problem" to prophesy an even greater revival. Talk about spiritual thugs! Here is a picture of the late Edvardsen who has done more harm to the Norwegian Christianity than anyone can comprehend

8) In order to make use of the gifts one has and develop them so all need a community. It is evident at several places in the education we get in the word of God, especially the New Testament that God looks at us believers as a whole. We find the church referred to as both a house in Hebrews, a body in Corinthians, like a vine of Jesus in the Gospel of John. Therefore, I will at this point stop at the church and illuminate several aspects of the church: The Church 1 Corinthians 10:32 Be not offended, either to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God. gr. "Ecclesia" = THE CHOSEN. The church is not the old Jewish household "under the law" in a different form. It's a whole new thing. It is not mentioned in the Old Testament, and was not known for GT's prophets (Eph. 3.1 to 6). It was first revealed by Christ, and the future was in his day (Matt. 16:18). The church's role / character is described in Paul's letters. We have no right to use GT's prophecies which directly concern only Israel, in comparison with the church. The church has its origins in Pentecost and will be completed by the second coming of Christ. It is complex and consists of them during this time are saved. GT's "dead in Christ" are "friends of the bridegroom" and not part of the "bride". The bride will be "selected" by the Holy Spirit and consists of Jews and Gentiles, and this lasts until the "fullness of the Gentiles" (come on) (Rom 11.1 to 25). Israel has been "run-in on a side track" to make clear the main track to the church. When the church is "complete" and has been "taken out" and are caught, when Israel will again be "turned back" to the main track and will be the "head" of the nations. The church will be "taken out" of the world before the tribulation is over the earth, and they that dwell therein (Rev. 3.10; 1 Thessalonians 1.10; Rooms 5.9) Lamb's bride will not experience the wrath of the Lamb (Revelation 6.12 to 17). In the crush, the Catholic Church (the papacy) rule in conjunction with any other apostate churches, congregations and movements. As well as all the other major religions of the world and become "skjøgekirken". A church for Jesus' death would be a ugjenfødt church. A church before Jesus' resurrection would be without the indwelling Spirit. A church before the Ascension of Jesus would be the church body without a head. First, the death of Jesus to the church to be "the Church of God which he won himself with his own blood. Acts 20.28. Christ loved the church and gave himself for it. Ephesians 2.25." (5.25?) For clarity we shall consider CHURCH below seven points:

1. WHAT ARE THE CHURCH. The church is not a continuation of the Israeli dispensation under a different name. Israel has been "driven into a siding, so the main track must be clear to ward passage. Jesus said:" The law and the prophets were until John "Luke 16.16. If Scripture puts Moses and the Law in a household, and Jesus and Grace in another, so let's respect this divine order, and not confuse what God has separated.

It is KINGDOM. John the Baptist came preaching the kingdom of God is near, and Jesus sent out the twelve, and also the seventy to do the same, but the Israeli people rejected their king. The creation of the kingdom were set aside. There can be no kingdom before "A man of high burden that went to a distant country to get royal power" ... comes again (Luke 19.11-17). The church is never in Scripture compared to a kingdom. The congregation is compared with a housing (1 Tim 3,15), with a temple (1 Cor 3.16 to 17), with a body (1 Cor 12.27 to 31). But never a kingdom, Christ is head of the church. The church's relationship with Christ should be such relationship is with a bride (Eph. 5.23 to 32; Rev. 21,2.9.10).

2. WHAT IS THE CHURCH I. It is a secret. Kingdom was not a secret. GT's prophets wrote it in clear tones. But it was something that was a mystery to them, and that was what was to come between suffering and glory of Christ (1 Pet 1.9 to 12). It's what's in between the cross and the crown. Jesus alluded to the church by Peter's confession of him. But he did not say when it would be revealed, or what it would be like (Matt 16.13 to 20). The secret of the church was first revealed to Paul (Eph. 3.1 to 11). From this we see that the church was hidden and unknown to the Old Testament's prophets and patriarchs. That the Gentiles might be saved was no mystery (Rom 9.24 to 30). The secret was that God would create something completely new, formed of both Jews and Gentiles, who were to constitute the church.

It is drafted body. The word church comes from the Greek word "ecclesia" which means assembly, gathering, congregation, they called out. But the word is not used excluded only for the church. Israel was an "ecclesia" or a popular assembly "called out from other people and nations" (5th Gen. 7.6 to 7). And it is called in Acts 7.38 "CHURCH IN THE DESERT". Any congregation of worshipers are linked, and constitute an "ecclesia" (Matt 18.15-20, 1st Corinthians 14.19-35) In Ephesus there was a great uproar against Paul and the Gospel. We read in Acts 19.23 to 41. In verse 32 it says "The meeting was a stirring" ... This assembly is called out from the others in town, and is called an "ecclesia". The link will show what is meant. The purpose of this household is according to Jacob's statement at the first meeting of the Apostle of Jerusalem, in Acts 15.13 to 18. Verse 14b: "God first went care to a nation of nations for his name." Gentiles are saved without the law. Rooms 3.21 ...

The purpose of this age is not to convert the world, but it is gathering from the nations that make up an assembly CHURCH.

When Israel was a "called out body" is a national body composed of Abraham, but the church is not a national body composed of only one people, but it is of individuals from every tribe, people and tongue, of every people and nation. Israel and the church are separate and distinct, and can not be mixed together. It is clear when we consider the selection. Israel is chosen in Abraham from the world's foundation (Matt 25.34). While the congregation was chosen in Him (Jesus) before the foundation (Ephesians 1.4-6).

II. The Body of Christ In Eph. 1.22 to 23 we read ... that the Father gave Jesus as head over all things to the church. The text shows that this "Jesus Head" was not possible until after Jesus was raised from the dead, and sat at the Father's right hand. The church could not exist before there was a head, for God does not make foolish things. The church is therefore BODY as Christ is the head of. In 1 Corinthians 12.12-13 we are told how this "body" is created, formed, shaped, brought into existence. Ephesians 1.22, 4.15, 5.23, Colossians 1.18; 2,10.19)

SPIRIT LIVES This leads us into the Body of Christ. Therefore there could be no church until after "Pentecost" (Acts 1.4 to 5, 2.1 to 4). There should be no misunderstanding of what Paul meant by "body" in Cor 12,13. He says in the verse 27: "Now you are the body of Christ ...". In Romans 12.5: "Thus we have many one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another." This fact that the ward is a body composed of living members shows that there is a "organization", but a "organism". An organization is made up of different devices such as doors, windows, ceilings, floors, etc. of a building, which can be taken down and replaced with new parts, without building a whole is destroyed. But a human body is an organism. You can not move an eye, ear, arm or foot, yet neither a nail on a finger or toe without destroying the whole of the body. So we see from this that for Christ to lose a limb of his body (the church), it is disfiguring it. Never can the church, which is the body die, who's seen a dead body with a living head. Christ's head is alive and will never die again! He tells us in Revelation 1.18: "I was dead, and behold I am alive forevermore." Hence it says in Colossians 3:4: "When Christ, our life, shall appear, then shall ye and revealed with Him in glory." Jesus Christ not only gave his life for the church, but the church. But why is the church "body of Christ", what is a body for? Yes, there are manifestations of a personality. "An individual can exist without a physical body, so that the soul exists without a physical body between death and the resurrection of the body. But that soul is alive after bodily death can not be seen and be known , for those who live here in the flesh. So we see that the only way Christ is in the glory, can manifest themselves, make themselves known is through the body - the church., the only way that the world can see Christ today, the reborn, believers. Maybe that was what Paul had in mind when he wrote to File 1.21: "For me, Christ is life." At that Christ lived his life through Paul, was the way Christ could manifest itself in the world . 1 Corinthians 12:12-13

"For as the body is one and has many members, and all members of the body are one body, being many, so it is with Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free. And we have all been given the one Spirit to drink. " Second, do not speak Ephesians 3.4-6 on equality with respect salvation, but that the Gentiles are part of the body. "In chapter 2, we see that the hearing of the body is something else entirely., we see that - the body - is identical with the church and that the church is a new creature. Chap 2, 15 So this was something that had not been before., we are not set equal to Jews in the prophetic plan, but with the saved Jews.'s why when a Jew salvation, he separated from the Jewish people and is in a completely different relationship to God than them. One can not be in two covenants with God at once. Scripture operates with three expressions: Jews - Greeks - Church of God. 1 Corinthians 10.32. Having GT speaks of the church speaketh of all Israel. See 3rd Gen. 4.14; 4 Mos. The Hebrew word for church is "Kahal" and represents all the people. The Greek word used is "ecclesia" which means the called out ones. When we consider the church's glory in the Kingdom of time that separates the the decision of Israel's glory in this time. Matt 19.28.

What speaks secret?

A. That the Gentiles are coheirs. Ef 3.6 and Chapter 2.19. b That they belong to the body (the newly created) Chapter 3.6 and 2.15. C. That they are partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus 3.6 (promise of the gospel). To associate the church as yet a secret. See 1 Corinthians 15.51-53 and 1 Tess 4.14 to 17. We see from this that anyone would turn and with the dead saints shall be caught up in the clouds in the air to meet the Lord, this was something that was not revealed in the Old Testament because it belonged together with the church and thus was a secret.

'S MATURITY When Christ is the head and body of the church, so the two would be the "Manns maturity", the mature man, and this is precisely what Paul says ... Ephesians 4.11 to 13. In 1 Cor 3.9 to 17, Paul speaks of the church, and uses the image of a building. Building of God, and the temple of God, verses 9-17. In Ephesians 2, he says that Christ is the cornerstone. As God was present in the Tabernacle with its glory, so and now in this household, when Israel nationally utav God Community, and there is no temple in Jerusalem, so the church since Pentecost that place where God dwells on earth, where he manifests even through the Holy Spirit. John 1:14 says that the Word (Jesus), tabernacle among us, and speaks of his body as a temple (John 2.19 to 21). We see that between Gudsåpenbarelsen in the Tabernacle, and now through his Holy Spirit in the church, he revealed himself in the person of Jesus, and John says, "and we (John, Peter and James) so his glory." God's glory on the Mount. John 1:14; 2 Pet 1.16 to 21.

IT WILL BECOME A BRIDE OF CHRIST The church is at the present time betrothed, engaged. Paul says to the Corinthians: "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy, for I betrothed you to the one man, to produce a pure virgin to Christ." 2. Corinthians 11.2. At the time of Christ was a betrothal (engagement) holy and consecrated as a marriage. The first Adam had his bride, and the second or last Adam must have his bride. In 1 Gen. 2.21 to 24 we are told how the first Adam received his bride. Then the Lord sent a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept, he took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh. And the Lord God built the rib he had taken from the man into a woman and brought her to the man. Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, for from man she was taken. 1. 2.21 to 23 Mos. Jesus in his flesh days of life on earth as a man was alone, there was a deep sleep - sleep of death - fell on him. Out of his wounded side, as a result of reconciliation on the cross, it emerged that the church, the Holy Spirit gave life on the day of Pentecost. And as Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh, so we can say about the church ... We are members of His body. Of his flesh and of his bones. Ephesians 5.29 to 33. The woman was led to the man and pose for him, but Christ will present the Church to himself. Ephesians 5.27. The fact that Eva was married to Adam suggested in 1 Gen 2:24, and referred to in Matthew 19.4-5 and Ephesians 5.31. We have a beautiful illustration of how Christ takes out his Bride, the Church, in the story of how Isaac got his bride. SCRIPTURE Abraham is a picture of God. Sara is a picture of Israel. Isaac is a picture of Jesus. Eliezer is a picture of the Holy Spirit. Rebecca is a picture of the church. Kretura is a picture of Israel restored. When the time came that Isaac should get a wife, his father, Abraham not want him to marry a woman kananitisk. He sent his servant Eliezer to his family to take Isaac a wife. When Eliezer reached Haran in Mesopotamia, he was on a divine guidance led to Laban's home, a grandfather of Abraham. His sister Rebecca, God had chosen to be the wife of a man she had never seen. She trusted Eliezer's message and what it represented, and she traveled with him, and left his relatives. And as the caravan approached the home of Abraham, we read that ... "Isaac went on even while out in the field to have a quiet time (meditating). When he looked up, he saw camels coming consistently. Rebekah step down from his camel, and was presented by Eliezer of Isaac, and she was his wife. " So God has sent the Holy Spirit to this world in this household (spirit, grace and salvation household), to get a wife for his son Jesus. When the score is full of those who make up the church, and the time is right, then the Holy Spirit will bring the church back with him to the Father's house, and Jesus, his bride as she should be at the "evening" of this household to meet her. 1. Tess 4.15 to 17. Some believe owing to that Isaac's bride was taken from his own family, let, for the picture to be complete, the bride of Jesus being Israel. His own, and not the church which is mainly composed of Gentiles. But we must not forget that when Abraham was the first Hebrew, was his own Gentile. Abraham was not immediately called a Jew, Jews are descendants of Judah, the fourth son of Jacob, or Israel. We therefore see that Rebecca was not an Israelite, but a Gentile, then the image will hold up. We must not forget that there are two "brides" mentioned in Scripture. One of the GT and the NT. The GT is Israel, Jehovah's bride, and the New Testament is the church, the bride of Christ. If Israel is said, "Your Maker is your husband ..." Isaiah 54.5 to 8. Because of Israel's fornication are an outcast wife, but God, her husband, promising to take her back when she gets away ungodliness. Jer 3.1 to 18; Ezek 16.1 to 63; With 2.1 to 23, 3.1 to 5. Sara is a picture of Israel before it fell, and Kretura is a picture of Israel when God will bring her back. She will not be back as a virgin, but as a wife. But it is a virgin Lamb (Christ) shall genuine. So the wife (Israel) in the GT can not be the bride in the NT. "Wife" (Israel) should remain, be situated in the earthly Jerusalem in the millennium, while "The Bride" (The Church) should remain, be situated in the New Jerusalem. This separation makes it clear that Israel can not be the "bride" of Christ. As the church is both "body" and "bride" of Christ, we have here the picture of Eve, who was "the Body" to Adam before she became his "Bride".

3. Ward COPYRIGHTS As we have seen, the church has its origins in the mind of God "before the foundation of the world". Yet it existed before the Ascension. In the summer of the third year of Jesus' ministry, when Israel practically denied and rejected him, and he began to see "Cross Shadow" and knew that the offer of the kingdom would soon shrink for what was to come, he took them to the land of Caesarea Philippi. There, he asked this question: "Who do people say the Son of Man is?" Matt from 16.13 to 20. After they had said what others said about him, tells him unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Simon Peter answered and said: "You are the Christ, the living Son of God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven . And I tell you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. " We see here a pun. It is from the Greek word "Petros" that the word Peter is taken. "Petros" in Greek means "a stone", a small stone from a mountain, while the Greek word "Petra" means a mountain or a large rock. It appears that the Greek word "Petros" is masculine, masculine, while the word "Petra" is feminine, female. The change in the grammatical form, male, Petros, the crux Petra, is not without significance. Like the man Peter is away from his confession that Christ was the Son of God. Up to this confession, or on Christ - Sten - Christ would build his church. That "rock", rock, means Christ himself, is in harmony with the Scriptures that speak of him as "the rock" stone. At Peter understood that Christ meant that he was "ROCK" is clear from Peter's orders in Acts 4.5 to 12, where he says of Christ: "He is the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone." Peter repeats this in his first letter. 1. Pet 2.3 to 8. This clearly shows that he declared himself to be the cornerstone on which Christ spoke. The Apostle Paul also explains that the "stone" refers to Christ. When he writes to the Corinthians he says "No one can lay any foundation other than that which is laid, Jesus Christ. In Ephesians 2.20-22 Paul declares, and announces that the church is and will be, is built on the apostles and prophets the foundation, but the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself, in whom every building joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; and in whom you also are built up with the others for an habitation of God through the Spirit. There could be no foundation for the church until after Christ's death, resurrection and ascension. When Christ was the rock, and on whom we have apostles and prophets (NT's prophets) foundation that was laid. The first superstructure of 3000 "living stones" were added at Pentecost. Acts 2.41. A few days later the second building up of 5000 added / incorporated. Acts 4.45. How the church has grown through the years. The congregation has grown as a "Holy Temple" to a "living God" in spirit. The church then has its origin at Pentecost. If Peter was "the rock" that the church was built, it would have been natural and reasonable that the "secret church" should have been revealed to him instead of Paul. With the "gates of hell" means the world. The world is divided into two sections with an insurmountable throat in between. One section called "Paradise," the second section called "Hades". Luke 16, 19-31. To Paradis Jesus went to meet the penitent robber after his death on the cross, and when he came back from Paradise, he took all the "prisoners" as death kept there with him. He then opened department there in the world "Abraham's flesh." Now he has the keys of death and Hades. Hades shall not prevail against the church. The Roman Catholic Church claims that Peter was the "rock" that the church would be built on, and that Christ promised Peter "the keys to the kingdom of heaven." Therefore, the Pope and his followers close the "gate to purgatory." But he had not, and would not have "Sheol keys". "Sheol keys" are in the hand of Peter Master, who said to the beloved John on Patmos' island: "Fear not: for I am the first and the last and the living. I was dead, and behold I am alive forevermore, and have the keys of death and Hades. " Rev. 1.17 to 18. This destroys with a brush stroke the Roman Catholic claim. As we have seen, is not the church kingdom, and therefore can not be the Kingdom Keys to the church keys. The kingdom of heaven is a secret shape while the king is absent, and has expanded to the Church and in the world now as Christianity. This is the meaning of the mysteries of heaven in Matthew 13 The keys to the kingdom of heaven, which was given to Peter was therefore "key" which has opened the way into the kingdom of heaven to the Jews at Pentecost (Acts 2.14 to 40), and later to the Gentiles in Cornelius house in Caesarea. Acts 10.34 to 48.

WHO BELONG TO THE CHURCH? If the church has its origin at Pentecost, and ends at the coming of Jesus the Holy by rapture, who belong to the church then, and therefore constitute "bride"? Reflect those who are saved in between these two events. The GT's Saints can not belong to the church, for it did not exist then. At any wedding is where members of different people other than the bride and groom. It is the bride's man, bridesmaid, ceremony master (guardian over), flower girls, relatives and invited guests. In Rev. 19.9 we read: "Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage of the Lamb meal." "The Bride" will not be called (invited), she has a place there because she is the bride. (The wedding is for her.) They are called guests. In the parable of the "wedding of the King's son." Matt 22.1 to 4. Those who were invited to the wedding were guests, not the bride. John the Baptist standing for GT's Jewish households did just claim to be the "bridegroom's friends." John 3.24. At the rapture, all the dead in Christ arise, and it also includes all the Old Testament Saints, and they will be present at the marriage of the Lamb. They are cleaned blood of the Lamb, and come out of the great tribulation after the church is raptured, these will all be blessed, but they will not be part of the bride. Angels can be spectators of the event, but they can not be guests. This honor is only for those who have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.

4. Ward "MISSION" As we have seen, is not the church, an "organization" but an "organism". Therefore, it is not a social club, organized and sustained itself, or simply because of the reward, "good deeds" of its members. It is not entertainment and amusement connected and linked to the old man, and that satisfies the "I". It is not a "warehouse" for the sale of indulgence, gratification, pleasure or other committees, by the wicked money can be cover (a security) for the salvation of the sparse (poor) church members at some sacrifice themselves (self sacrifice). It is neither a social measure to save (rescue) human bodies. The reformation of man is useful and well as all other forms of social work, but it is not its act or mission of the church is set to. World poverty and distress was great, if not greater, at the time of Jesus, than the social distress is today. Neither Jesus nor the apostles organized a care in the emergency. He knew that the source of all suffering and misery in the world is sin, and the only way to eradicate sin is that the human heart is born again, and therefore Jesus gave the world the gospel. The church's mission is to carry (preach) the gospel to the whole world. Mark 16:15. The gospel is not a system of "ethics" or a special "moral law." It is a: Proclamation of Salvation! "I am not ashamed of the gospel (of Christ), for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes. For the Jew first and also to the Greek." (Gentile). Rom 1:16. The purpose of the gospel in this dispensation (of grace and salvation) is not the salvation of society, but the salvation of individuals in all strata of society, will be the "body of Christ" - the church. The big mistake the church has done is to acquire, transfer to itself, in this age, promises of earthly conquest, earthly victory and glory that belongs exclusively Israel in the millennium or kingdom age. As soon as the church enters into an "alliance with the world", and seeking government assistance on the many levels, and support of wicked men and women, losing the church in its entirety, as well as the individual believer's spiritual power, inspiration and anointing. They are helpless as a redemptive force-power-strength in this world. The church is in the world, not of the world, but sent to the world. John 17,11.16.18. "To keep up the Word of Life, so they come to faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Redeemer of the world."

5. Ward FATE The church will be raptured. This event will be twofold. 1. Among the dead in Christ. 2. Off the living Saints. They're going to be caught up at the same time, to meet the Lord in the air. "For the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the angel's voice, and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain, together with them be caught in the clouds, up in the air to meet the Lord, and so shall we ever be with the Lord. " 1. Tess 4.16 to 17. Rapture of Enoch in the days before the flood (1st Gen. 5:24) and Elijah in royal time in Israel (2 Kings 2:11) is modeled on the "transformation" of the saints. Revelation of Moses and Elijah on the Mount of Christ (Lk 9.28 to 31), is a picture of the "raptured church" meeting in the image of Christ and the Church in the air. Moses is a picture of the risen saints, and Elijah the transformed saints. Jesus revealed to Martha, before he raised Lazarus, what was going to happen at the first resurrection. He said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live (the first resurrection of the saints). And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Joh 11.25 to 26. Look how nice this harmonizes with Paul's presentation in 1 Thessalonians 4.16 to 17. When Jesus comes back, he will be the resurrection of the dead in Christ, and the life of those who live and believe in Him. In the resurrection chapter, 1 Cor 15.1 to 58, having described the "departments" of the resurrection (V.22-24) Paul continues to describe what will happen to the living Saints. "Behold, I tell you a mystery, We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in an instant, in a moment, at the last trumpet.: For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be turned . For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal put on immortality. When this corruptible shall put on incorruption, and this mortal will put on immortality, then shall be fulfilled the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory. Death where is thy sting? Death, where is thy victory? But the sting of death is sin, and sin is the law of force, but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ "1 Corinthians 15.51-52. Here we see that being changed without dying. It is Only those who can say, "Death where is thy sting? Death (grave), where is thy victory? This section corresponds to 1 Tess 16-17, and explains that the resurrection and transformation will be at the same time, and in an instant, in a moment agrees with Jesus' statement when he returns to earth with the saints. It will happen suddenly - quick - abruptly. "As the lightning comes from the east, and shineth even unto the west, so shall the Son of man coming be." Matt 24.27. In 2 Cor 5.1 to 4 and Paul expressed his longing, and the saints desire to be among those who will be found "undressed at death", but to be among those who will "overkledes the indestructible without dying." "For we know that if our earthly house body dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For even while we are in the house, sugar, because we longing for to overkledes with our dwelling from heaven, if we are to be found clothed, not naked. For we that are in this cabin, sugar under the burden, because we will not undressed, but overkledes, for att mortal may be swallowed up of life. ' In his letter to the Philippians, Paul hopes to reach before time. If I can win the dog to the resurrection from the dead ... v.11. ... As God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus ... v.14. This is the time Paul will appreciate. File 3.11 to 14. It's a great thing to be resurrected at the first resurrection and be caught up with them which will be transformed, but still want Paul appreciate that there is a prize of whether he could reach the Rapture without dying, it will means to live until Jesus comes again.

TIME FOR Rapture Some argue that all the congregation shall review the whole crowd. Others believe that the church will be caught away before the tribulation begins, while others argue that only the "wake" and "pending" Saints shall be caught away before the tribulation, and that the others have to go through and experience the crowd! The latest builds his claim on Hebrews 9.28, which states: ... sometime reveal himself without sin unto salvation to those who eagerly await Him. The time that this be referred to for those who are alive when He comes, it can not apply to those who are dead. There are thousands, hundreds of thousands who have "fallen asleep in Christ," who have never heard of his coming to create rich occurs in two departments, and many do not understand it fully, and therefore never watches and waits and looks forward to his revelation. Yet they are in Christ, and the dead in Christ shall rise at the Rapture. Paul does not tell the 1st Tess 4.16 to 17 it will be the dead who watches and waits, and looks forward to Jesus' revelation, they will be caught up, but he says "the dead in Christ" and "we who are alive, who are left." Resurrection sequence is: Christ the first fruits, then they that are Christ made alive at His coming. 1. Corinthians 15.23. Paul says: "Behold I tell you a mystery, We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. 1 Corinthians 15.51. Then there is also another fact that we must not forget, and that is church unity." For as the body is one and has many members, and all body limbs, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ, for we are all baptized by one Spirit into one body; .. . "1 Corinthians 12.12-13a. Therefore, all who are "born again" (John 3.3-7) belongs to the body of Christ, and we can not imagine that the body of Christ is shared. Some remain hensovet in graves, and another part of it arises in glory, and so changed and caught up to meet Him in the air. If the church will undergo the tribulation, so instead of waiting and watching "for the Lord," we should wait and watch for the great tribulation, which is the opposite of what Jesus Christ himself teaches. Matt 24:42-44, TLB. The great tribulation is not to perfect the saints. It has nothing to do with the church, it is the time of "Jacob's trouble" (Jer. 30.7), and it's "judgment of Israel." It is God's plan to free the church from it. Rev. 2.10. Revelation is written in chronological order. After the first four chapters, the church is not to be found on earth until the ninth chapter, where it comes with the groom from the sky. In between these chapters progress the various judgments that fall on those who dwell on the earth. The church is not of earth, but it is set in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2.6. So it will not be among those who dwell on the earth in those days.

Rapture AND revealed The confusion and misunderstanding regarding the prophecies have their cause in that one does not show Jesus come for the saints and the coming of Jesus with the saints. The first is called the Rapture, the other is called revelation. And between these two, there is a time at least seven years, and when the church accepts Christ's court, and marriage of the Lamb takes place in heaven, and on earth taking the antichrist tribulation. In several places the tales in the scriptures about the coming of Christ with the saints. Item 14.5; Colossians 3:4; 1 Tess 3.13; 1 Tess 4.14, Jud v.14. But it is clear that they will not come to him if they have experienced raptured to Him. All these references have to do with revelation, not the rapture. Role models in Scripture that can be applied to the church, and that shows that the church will be raptured before the great tribulation. Joseph was a type of Christ, and he was married to Asnot (1st Gen. 41.45) a Gentile bride, during the time he was rejected by his brethren, and before the famine, which is a type of the great tribulation, because it was the time for the judgment of his brethren. The time now is when Jesus is rejected by his brothers, the Jews, and to make the picture perfect, he must get his bride, the church, before the great tribulation. MOSES, which also was a type of Christ, got his bride, a pagan after his rejection by his brethren, and before they went through the hustle season under Pharaoh. 2. 2.23 to 25 Mos. ENOK, a picture of the transformed saints, was caught before the flood, and the flood is a type of the great tribulation, and Noah and his family of "Jewish" remnant, or the 144,000 in Revelation Revenge of 7.1 to 8, which will be preserved through the tribulation.

Rapture "Rapture" would be the most surprising and appalling event in this age, it's going to happen in an instant and for a moment, and on the earth at the same time. The part of the earth that is not asleep will witness what happens. As it is written: "The shout" and an "angel's voice" and "the trump of God." We do not know if these sounds will be heard and sensed by others than the "dead in Christ" and "the living saints". We know that one day the Father spoke to Christ by a voice that he understood, but that the others do not understand, they thought it had thundered. Jn 12.28 to 29. Lord appeared to Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus and spoke to him. Those who traveled with him must have heard the voice but saw no man, and did not understand what was said. But one thing we do know, at least, that the "dead in Christ" will hear the sound. It will be so pervasive in force, there will be no grave that is too deep, no catacombs that are hidden with rocks, no tombstones so thick that no sound will be heard. "The dead in Christ" shall hear the cry, "sound". (Wake up you hensovede sacred and rise from the dead. It is morning, the first resurrection morning.) VOICE OVER angel It's in Dan 12.1, that Michael (the great prince) will be keen to help Daniel's people (the Jews), at the second coming, and that there will be a resurrection of the righteous dead at the time. And the fact that Michael disputed with the devil about the body of Moses, as it says in Jude verse 9, it is clear that the angel Michael will take part in the resurrection at the Rapture. "Over the Angel's Voice" will be Michael, because he is the only one of the angel mentioned in Scripture. Satan tried to prevent the resurrection of Moses, when he will be cast out of the heavenly until after the first resurrection, then one can conclude that Satan will try to prevent the resurrection of "the dead in Christ," and he will put in against Michael as the leader of "the heavenly host" and that "the angel's voice" refers to his command of the heavenly host.

Trumpet of God What is meant by "the trump of God" is not so clear. That there is a trumpet will sound at the first resurrection is clear, for Paul mentions it in his speech on the Resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15.52. He calls it "the last trumpet". Some believe that Paul refers to the last of the "seven trumpets", mentioned in Revelation (Rev. 8,1.2.6 and Rev. 10.7), and that it will sound in the "middle of Daniel's 70-årsuke". Therefore, the church will not be raptured before the middle of the week. When the church will be raptured at the beginning of the week, this can not be true. What is meant when the last trumpet? The trumpet is a military instrument. It was used in Israel struggles to call people together. The first trumpet meant: "Get ready for departure." The other (last) trumpet was the signal that meant "Forward march." When God came down on Mount Sinai, people gather at the "trump of God". 2. Mos 19,9-11,16-20. When God was ready to speak to the people, the song for the second time, v. 19. It has been held up for God's descent to Mount Sinai is a picture of Jesus' descent into the air to meet the church, and then the first trumpet sound, and the dead in Christ will be resurrected, and by the second (last) trumpet will living saints shall be changed and with the resurrected they will be caught up to meet the Lord. The possibility that this is to be understood, we see in the fact that "the last trumpet" 1 Corinthians 15.51-52 is associated with the transformation of the living saints, rather than the resurrection of the dead in Christ. We know that the gathering of Israel occurs at the sound of a trumpet to gather them in their country. Matt from 24.30 to 31. This will happen at Trumpets feast (party), the Jewish New Year at the end of the tribulation period (trumpet festival "party") is attached to. TRUMPET PARTY, the Jewish New Year at the end of the tribulation period. "Trumpet Fest" was linked to "Tabernacles," and it occurred in the fall. As Jesus was crucified at the "Passover" and the Holy Spirit was given at the "Pentecost", then you have imagined that Jesus would reveal himself to his brothers (the Jews) at the "Tabernacles", a picture of Israel's rest in the Millennium, and that he would call out his church with "trumpet sound" by "trumpet fest" seven years before the final collection of ISRAEL. But this is still somewhat speculative. If the dead in Christ shall rise without anyone seeing them, without graves opened, it will be invisible as Christ arose without breaking the sail. The angel rolled away the stone only to show that the tomb was empty, the first resurrection will be a secret and possibly unknown to the world. But it will not be the "Holy living" that transforms.

Lord's voice. When people are going home from their many activities, they will discover that many people are missing, and that the missing were among the best citizens. The confusion will last for a while, it will prevail over all, all banks, shops, jobs, yes, every imaginable place, there will be chaos. Many buses, trams, taxis, planes yes, all the means of transport will be affected. In the beginning it will be something mysterious and frightening at all, but suddenly there is someone who has heard of the doctrine of the Rapture, and it explains the situation. And maybe a big surprise will prove, that many professing Christians are left, and among them perhaps too many preachers, while many who were known as Christians is missed. For a few days will be intense despair and unbearable. The people will see that it is done, and not to avoid. Only a few will repent and turn to God, while the mass of the people will become harder and harder, and more and more ungodly. When the Holy Spirit is taken away with the "saints" who are the salt of the world, the decay being a reality. There's no holding back. Wickedness is free to soar. Crime and lawlessness is currently in full development. No one can trust anyone. When will the Antichrist rise up, and through him, the world will ripen for judgment.

6. Ward "DOM" After the church is taken away from the world shall be judged, not for pity, but for deeds, before Christ's Courts.

CHRIST'S COURT Return of Christ is the church's "blessed hope." Titus 2:13. Yet it is not only associated with heavenly privileges, but with a sacred responsibility. "We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in his body, whether good or evil." 2. Cor 5,10. As the Rapture is refreshed for the heart, so is Christ's tribunal incentive for conscience. It is here seven facts that Scripture lets us look into: 1. Currently, the day of Christ (2 Corinthians 1.8). 2. The judge, Christ himself (2 Timothy 4:8) 3. People, we all (2 Cor 5.10) 4. Strictness, his fire (1 Cor 3:13) 5. The measure, our faithfulness (1 Cor 4.1 to 4) 6. The result, wages or loss (1 Cor 3.14 to 15) 7. The end goal, glory (1 Peter 5:4)

TIME is Christ. It is mentioned six times in the NT. 1. Corinthians 1:8; 5.5; 2 Cor 1.14; File 1.6; 10,2.16. And that day 2 Tim 4.8, 1.12. At his coming 1 Jn 2.28; 1 Cor 4.5. That is, after all NT's testimony, the time before the visible glory realm is created, before the Millennium.

7. Ward WEDDING The church wedding is prophetically spoken of by Jesus in the parable of the king's son's wedding. Matt from 22.1 to 14. And it enforced in Revelation 19.7 to 9. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him! For the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His bride has made herself ready, and it's given her to dress in clean, shiny, fine linen. For the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage of the Lamb Communion. Note that it says "bride's wedding", but the "marriage of the Lamb." The big event is not so much the completion of the mass representing the bride, as it is the fulfillment of God's plan for his son, who was destined before the foundation was laid. Ephesians 1.4. "Marriage of the Lamb" is the fulfillment of Christ's joy as a human being. This would not have been possible if Christ had been born in the flesh (Virgin Mary) Hebrews 2 If not then it would have been a union of two natures. For "Bride" is of "human origin". This is why Jesus took his "human nature" back to heaven, and today we have in heaven, the man Christ Jesus. 1. Tim 2.5. When "The Bride" was chosen for Christ "before the foundation of the" engagement could not take place until after Christ was born into the human race, and suffered and died for us, and then taken up to heaven as the man Christ Jesus. There have been many long engagements, but Christ's has been the longest that have been. He waited for his bride for almost 2,000 years, but he need not wait much longer, soon the sky fills with a shout: "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come ..." Rev. 11.7. After the wedding, and the heavenly bridegroom received his kingdom, he will come to this earth, where he bled, died and won a bride, and he will reign from "David Trone" in a thousand years. What a wonderful and joyous honeymoon there will be. But it will end, not for the bride and groom, but for the earth by their's Return to "Father's house". Even after the earth is "baptism by fire" will come again in the Holy City, to dwell on the new earth forever.
