Who Do You Suppose is the Army that Follows Our Messiah on White Horses in Revelation 19? To those of you that say there is “No Rapture at all,” please pay close attention to this.
Zecharyahuw (Zechariah) 14:5 And you shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, you shall flee, like as you fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Yahuwdah (Judah): and YHWH my Elohiym shall come, and ALL THE SAINTS [qowdeshiym, holy ones] with you.
The Resurrection & Ascension of the Bride Patterns After Messiah!
*Disclaimer: I am in no way promoting the erroneous “Pre-Tribulation Rapture” doctrine.
Scripture teaches a “Post-Tribulation” catching away of the bride or in Greek “harpazo” which means the same thing as the Latin word “rapturo.” (see 1st Thessalonians 4:17).
The Apostle Sha’ul (Paul) explained that the righteous will follow the same pattern as our Messiah in death, burial, and resurrection:
Romans 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Messiah was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Romans 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.
Our Messiah is referred to as “The manchild” in Revelation 12, for he was born of the woman “Miryam” (Mary), and then he was “CAUGHT UP” to Elohiym and to his throne.
However, Revelation 12 has a dual fulfillment in the future resurrection of the bride of Messiah. The man-child is also a corporate resurrected body of people referred to as “one new man” in Ephesians 2:15.
Jews and Gentiles alike who are “born-again” of incorruptible seed will put on immortality when they are resurrected:
Revelation 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was CAUGHT UP UNTO ELOHIYM, AND TO HIS THRONE.
Our Messiah remained here on earth after his resurrection for forty days.
Afterward, he ASCENDED back to the Father in heaven:
Acts 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was TAKEN UP; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
Acts 1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he WENT UP, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
Acts 1:11 Which also said, You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven? This same Yahuwshuwa (Jesus), which is TAKEN UP from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven.
If our Messiah was TAKEN UP to the Father in Heaven, the Bride of Messiah shall also be TAKEN UP to Heaven!
This will take place on Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets).
The bride of Messiah will then return with him riding on white horses (Revelation 19), and she will be clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
The bride will be his army, equipped with an immortal body, and ready to fight a war with him on The Great Day of Wrath, which will be on Yom Kippur!
