 THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF ANY  BIBLE VERSES SHOWING  7 YR PRE TRIBULATION RAPTURE

BIBLE VERSES EVIDENCE:

While JESUS was alive, He prayed to His Father: "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  John 17:15 (KJV)

JESUS gave signs of what must happen before His Return:  "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:"  Matt. 24:29 (KJV)

 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:   Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." I Thess. 4:16-17 (KJV)

"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed."  I Corin. 15:52

The "Resurrection" has been erroneously labeled The "Rapture". 

  9 For God/JESUS hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by JESUS

Acts 17:10-12

10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.

11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.
KJV

Luke 21:25-28

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
KJV

Re: HOW DID JESUS CHRIST FULFILL THE LAW?

Michael,

I really don't understand why you responded with what you did, as if I was not being Scriptural enough or using the Holy Word of God to prove my case. I hope I am misunderstanding you when you keep insisting it is by YOUR WORKS that you keep the Law, but this sure seems to be what you are conveying.

I have to question whether you took the time to even read the study and what was said before reacting with the same old argument. Did you notice that I said that the Law was not done away with but how we keep it was changed.

Why did the Lord command the Israelites to keep the Law in the Old Testament? So they could have a relationship with Him by their own obedience (works). Ah, but this changes under the New Covenant and what Jesus did for us. He now becomes the Way to have a relationship with God, by fulfilling the Law, thus when we are in Christ we are no longer under the condemnation of the Law.

"Fulfilled" clearly means completed. The shadow has met its reality. It has been accomplished. It is because of His work that you are able to keep the commandments. Don't forget Jesus IS GOD!

We are now free from condemnation under the Law, not free from the Law itself! We have liberty in Christ, and will keep His Commandments by resting in Him.

If you don't agree with how this study is showing that Jesus fulfilled the Law, please tell me how else He fulfilled them?

And please be reminded of these Scriptures that reinforce the point I am making. What liberty did Jesus bring to us by His sacrifice, if not the liberty to keep the commandments of God because we have found the Way the Truth and the Life in His Son. Jesus fulfilled the Law so that we could keep it!

Isa 61:1

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

Luk 4:18
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

Gal 4:24
Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.

Gal 4:25
For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

Gal 4:26
But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

2Co 3:17
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Gal 5:13
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

Jas 1:25
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

1Pe 2:16
As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

Rom 8:2
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Rom 8:3
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Again Michael, it has nothing to do with our works and everything to do with His. It is by His works we are saved and the only way to keep His Commandments!

I would really like an answer to my question. How do you think Jesus fulfilled the Law?

In His Name and His Love and His Light!!

JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!

Re: HOW DID JESUS CHRIST FULFILL THE LAW?

Dear Patti,

I just lost over 2 hours of a post that I was working on for you! The power went out at my home and everything was lost.

Patti, I believe as you that Jesus is our rest. I just believe that we are to obey the 10 commandments as best we can as unto the Spirit of God and not walk in the flesh and lusts of the flesh unto death.

I don't believe that we are to ignore the 10 commandments, with everything that is said in the new testament about the rewards of those that KEEP and TEACH the commandments, the 10 commandments, of God.

These 10 rules were written with Gods own finger in STONE! Read Romans 7:25 for the differentiation of the law of God and the law of sin. In fact, read all of chapters 6, 7, and 8 of Romans.

To sum it up, we are freed from the laws of death dictated to Moses by God, by Jesus Christ sacrifice for us. Romans 6:15....What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

We must still TRY to do good and keep the commandments and strive for perfection. Although we are still in the flesh, we strive for the perfection of ourselves as demonstrated to us by Jesus Christ our Lord. We are given the GRACE to slip up and make mistakes as long as we repent and work to the perfecting of ourselves through our faith in Christ to lead us in our walk with him.

We are not given a free pass to do nothing after we are saved! Instead, one should be driven to the perfecting of ones behavior with our Lords help and guidance. If we love God with all our hearts, mind, and soul and love each other as we would ourselves, then we have kept the 10 commandments! But do you realize what that entails? It is harder than you might think! Because by doing these 2 things we are actually doing ALL 10! Thus keeping the 10 commandments as originally commanded by God! The key word is....OBEY! Are we willing to obey or do we want to debate it? You decide for yourself.

YBIC
Michael

Re: HOW DID JESUS CHRIST FULFILL THE LAW?

Hello Michael,

I am not debating with you, in fact I have been trying to show how we are in agreement. If you would but read what I am saying and not just assume that I am fighting against you, after all you are the one who responded to this post, so it is you that opened the door for this interaction.

Please be clear on this, I do not believe that the Law was done away with! And I have never said that our freedom in Christ means we can sin without consequences, or be lazy and just do our own thing! No!! Just the opposite!

*******
1 John 3:9
No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God.
*******

What has changed since Christ fulfilled the Law is HOW WE OBEY IT!!!! No longer in works of the flesh but in the Spirit of Christ!!

*******
Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Galatians 2:16
Yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.

Titus 3:5
He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,

Philippians 3:3
For we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh—
*******

When one is born again they become a NEW creation, and now obeys the Law spiritually through Christ!

*******
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
*******

Quite simply:

Old Covenant = Law = Works
New Covenant = Grace = Faith

We had a relationship with God under the Old Covenant by keeping the Law by our own works. We have a relationship with God under the New Covenant by Jesus fulfilling the Law by His sacrifice and sending of His Spirit (the free gift of Grace), and our faith in His completed work.

*******
Romans 6:14
For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.

1 Corinthians 1:30
And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption,

Romans 3:20
For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.
*******

Michael, I totally understand where you are coming from, as you love the Lord so much you want to DO SOMETHING FOR HIM! We all do! But, the work that is ours to do is to die to self, and that is very hard work to do, it is darn near impossible!! It requires giving everything to Christ!! Our lives in every regard...word, thought and deed, not to mention our health, our homes, our families, our finances, our very souls!! This is not easy, but this is what the His Spirit helps us to do, for without it we would still be condemned under the Law. Because Christ kept the whole of the Law for us, and fulfilled it, we that are in Him, are able to keep it too.

The Old Covenant was between God and man, thus between Spirit and flesh, and therefore doomed to fail! The New Covenant is between God and Christ, thus between Spirit and Spirit, and therefore can only succeed. The Spirit of Christ is what God sees in everyone that is Born again, and this is what pleases God, much more than keeping the Law in the flesh,by our own efforts.

I pray you now see what is the Truth of this matter, as this is what the Scriptures teach. There is nothing to debate, there is only revelation. I think we are in agreement about what is important, and that is what matters. We are to obey His Command to die to self and be reborn, and in that way our works will follow us.

Amen!! What an awesome God we serve, who gave His life, to fulfill the Law and did all the Work necessary for us to have eternal life in His kingdom if we but believe in His finished works, give Him our lives and have faith!

JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!

Patti C.


P.S. I would still like an answer to my question from anyone who sees this differently...HOW DID JESUS FULFILL THE LAW?
