There is no scriptural basis for "The Rapture". The scriptures talk about the regathering of the Two Houses of Israel, Judah and Ephriam, to the
land that was promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The return of the Messiah will not catch people up to "heaven", Upon His return, His people will
return to Israel from the four corners of the earth. Yom Teruah is the feast of Trumpets, a feast mandated by God to those that bound to His covenant.
It is a day of blowing the shofar and celebration, to remember that the Messiah is going to come. When the Last Trump blows, it will not be to sweep
"Christians" to heaven, it will be to wake up the Two Houses of Israel and return them home. The Messiah isn't going to return until after the
prophesies are fulfilled that signal His return. The Oracle of Damascus, a world war fought with the king of Persia (Iran), Division of the Land of
Israel (two States for Two people...sound familiar?) The signed peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, will be the catalyst for the
return of the Messiah. But He will not return until all these things have come to pass. We are on the brink of many of these events, but we also have
been for as long as I can remember. When you see an agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, then the events will begin in rapid succession.
The Revelation as well as much of the New Testament that wasn't written by the appointed Apostles Of Yeshua (Jesus), is highly questionable...if
you are seriously interested in fulfillment of prophesy, the only accurate place to find it is in the Scriptures, that being the Law and the Prophets,
everything else can only be considered "writings". If It begins with "Thus says the YHWH (LORD)" it is the word of God as spoken to His appointed
prophets, if it doesn't, then it is just the words of man and should be measured up against what God told his prophets. If it conflicts with what the
prophets were told then it is to be considered false.
As far as the "rapture" goes, I wouldn't worry about it... No one is going to Heaven, that is the throne of YHWH, not the habitation of man. God
created us to live here on Earth, not in the heavenlies. What I would worry about is how your chips will fall when the Messiah does return... Do you
have a covenant relationship with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob?
If you do then you keep a Saturday Sabbath, celebrate the Seven Feasts of Yahweh and keep His Instruction, the Laws, precepts, statutes and
judgements. You know who you are because your life is set apart from the rest of the world. If you don't have a covenant relationship with Yahweh,
then you are of the Nations...the regathering doesn't concern you. His people will be taken out of the nations and returned to their inheritance, the
nations will be left where they are, to deal with God on His terms whatever they may be.
It is easy to be part of the Children of Israel, read and follow what is in the first 5 books of the Bible, read and watch for the fulfillment of
prophesy and while you wait for the Messiah's return, love God and keep His commandments, treat others well and live in peace. Doesn't sound so bad
The only reason I even say anything about this subject is because there is a real lack of understanding of what the bible actually says... If you
don't worship the God of the bible, fine, most of the world doesn't, so your in the majority. But if you do believe in the God of the Bible, please
read His word, starting at page one of Genesis, and read through to the end of the prophets. Take no predigested concepts with you, let the word speak
for itself. The idea of the Rapture is nowhere in the scriptures, neither is The "Church", ministers, Sunday worship, Christmas, Easter and the list
