Harpazo Means Seizure
Social platforms such as YouTube and Facebook are spreading a fake version of an eschatological milestone that is dubbed the Rapture. Where we all understand that this is a Greek word that Y’shua used in the New Testament for bad things and Paul also used the same word for some good things, no one can define an event by a word that is used for both favorable and unfavorable consequences. That is the work of Mystery Babylon.
When Christ uses this word, it is mostly associated with the devil. For instance,
— Y’shua, Matthew 11, referring to illegal claim of the faith in Him.
When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away G726 that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
— Y’shua, Matthew 13
And so we may ask, in both of the above examples, neither instances of the catching away has anything to do with the elect. And so why people tie this verb to the rapture?
It is unsound to say the least.
Matthew 13 The Fake & The Real Raptures
All God truth must be interpreted only by the words of the Word of God — Y’shua. Jesus spoke 7 parables in Matthew 13 and He only gave explanation to His disciples to 3 out of 7 of them.
In one He said there will be two gatherings. In both gatherings, the disbelievers are not involved. In other words, the disbelievers have nothing to do with the resuce that He shall command. All of them will head to meet the 8th King the little horn in Daniel 7.
7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. 8 I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.
The little horn is the prophesied antichrist of popular culture, and the man of lawlessness mentioned by Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2, the man that God must reveal in order for the Gathering of the saints to take place.
A theory that says the Church will not see the antichrist is a lie.
The Parable of the Weeds Explained
36 Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.” 37 He answered,
“The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. 40 Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, 42 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.
Among those who believe in Him, the bad people will be gathered to the burn in the first gathering. The children of God, in the parable we are referred to as sons of the kingdom, will be gathered in the second gathering to be taken to His “barn”, that is the rooms in His Father’s mansion.The sons of the kingdom come from John 1
12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
People like Kenneth Copeland and Joel Osteen, just two examples of the following verse will be gathered to the burn.This is one of the three parables that Jesus explained.
From this we know that the gatherings will take place only at the end of the age.
40 Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age.
Y’shua will be the commander in charge of the host of heaven, for He will have to send the order to the angels to bundle the rejects.
41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, 42 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The elect will be gathered to the bosom of the Messiah to His kingdom.
43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.
