Do all Christians keep the patient word? "Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of trial, that [hour] which is to come upon the whole world, to try them that dwell upon the earth" (Rev. 3 10; see Luke 21.36). Feast of Trumpets-the first of the last 3 feasts related to the return of the Lord-deals with the first rapture. "Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which He shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread (typifies repentance and abhorrence of sin accompanied by a desire to get rid of it), and in the feast of weeks (the giving of the Holy Spirit, and the two wave loaves can signify the 'transition process' of the first rapture as firstfruits unto the Lord and the last trumpet resurrection - see Lev. 23.17), and in the feast of tabernacles (type for being sheltered in the reward of the millennial reign of Christ); and they shall not appear before the LORD empty" (Deut. 16.16). First rapture is explained in Rev. 3.10, 7.9, 12.5, 14.1-5; Matt. 24.37,40-41,42; Luke 21.36 among others. The first rapture is according to readiness on Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 16, 2023 (though the martyrs may be raptured sooner in the 5th Seal. Those martyred have a special place in God's heart.


The final harvest is the rapture and resurrection occurring near the end of the Great Tribulation at the start of the 7th trumpet, before the bowls are poured, as indicated in these verses: Rev. 11.15, 14.14-16, 15.2-4; 1 Cor. 15.23,50-52; 1 Thess. 4.14-18. Then a great ingathering of Jews and Gentiles is seen at the end of the 7 years (Matt. 24.31). After the 7th trumpet is blown (7th woe) there is a gleaning of fragmentary raptures of the saved over twenty-four months if any happen to give their lives to Christ during that time. After which, God administers judgment from the 1261st to 1290th day (Dan. 12.11). The three woes last 1260 days (Rev. 11.2,3; 12.6,14), called the Great Tribulation. The thirty-day judgment after the Great Tribulation will be used to separate the goats (bad nations) and the sheep (good nations) in Matt 25.31-46. From the 1290th to the 1335th day, the ingathering takes place where the nation of Israel receives her glory to be set up as the center of all nations from where Jesus will reign in the Third Temple. Israel is the center, but the reward for reigning is given to overcomer believers (Rev. 20.4-6) to reign over the nations (2.26). They shall return with Christ (Jude 14,15; Rev. 19.11-16). Non-overcomer believers lose the reward in outer darkness, outside the light of reward of reigning for 1000 years. That's a long time to miss out on the blessing.


Of the different partial rapture views, my spirit is led to notice these events: the First Rapture of the Martyrs of the 5th Seal from the past 20 centuries which takes "before the throne" (Rev. 7.9) or shortly before then. Also included in the first rapture are the 144,000 Firstfruits (both alive and resting). During the Tribulation martyrs are raptured three and half days after they go to rest like Enoch and Elijah the Two Witnesses. The hope is in escaping the seven year Tribulation if we are ready to be received to the throne which commences the parousia of Christ and initiates the Tribulation through Satan's reaction to the first rapture, for he knows then his time is short. He is the great Restrainer because he has been holding back his prized possessions, the Antichrist and False Prophet, to unleash them from the pit (Nero and Judas resurrected) at the most opportune time to inflict the most damage. It is in the middle of the Tribulation period (Rev. 9.1) God gives Satan the key to the pit to allow him to release the two sons of perdition and any other demonic spirits he will utilize. God uses Satan's wrath to judge the world for its wrongdoings. Perhaps the most evil of all is at least 10,000 people die every day do to starvation and at least 50,000 die per day needlessly. Humans are murdering and exterminating the disadvantaged. Take a moment and pray on how utterly evil this!


Partial rapture is for all believers to live as though they could be raptured before the Tribulation by seeking after the "prize" (1 Cor. 9.24, Phil. 3.14) of the hidden treasure and to be received according to readiness (Rev. 3.10, 12.5, 14.1-5; Luke 21.36, Matt. 24.40-41,42) "before the throne" (7.9) "to stand before the Son of man" (Luke 21.36c) before the trumpets of the Tribulation commence (8.7ff). The decision of who is to be raptured at the first rapture is left up to God, and we as believers await that decision. Those included in the first rapture are necessarily included in the kingdom rewards, but not all those who reign in the millennium are necessarily in the first rapture since not everyone is alive at first rapture, and some will overcome in the Tribulation after the first rapture. Those who "keep the word of My patience" (Rev. 3.10a) who are "watchful and prayerful" (Luke 21.36a; see Matt. 24.42) shall "be accounted worthy escape all these things that shall come to pass" (Luke 21.36) "upon the whole world" (Rev. 3.10c) of the "hour of trial" (v.10b) the Tribulation (emphasis is on the time of the last week of Daniel's prophecy). This is a definite condition that not all believers abide in and maintain faithfully consecrated.

Praise the Lord for this discernment! Amen.
