The Rapture of the Bride

First of all it must be said that Yahushua does not come for the church in the first place, but for His Bride. These are the children of God who have been cleansed and sanctified in the blood of their heavenly Bridegroom, are expecting Him and have prepared themselves for His coming.

Yahweh wants the endless dispute about whether His Son will return before, during, or after the great tribulation to finally end. As He says in the prophecies He has given to Elisabeth Elijah, they are all right.

A first time, Yahushua returns before the great tribulation to pick up His beloved Bride without spot or wrinkle. After all, he gave his life so that she would not be judged. They are the wise virgins in the parable of Matthew 25:1-13.
A second time He returns during the great tribulation to pick up the “foolish virgins”, who were not ready for His coming, but who will have become wise after being purified by the fire of the great tribulation. They will not be the bride, but the guests.
A third time Yahushua returns after the great tribulation, with great glory, to rule as king together with His Bride.

It is not God's will that His children should go through the great tribulation. In Luke 21:36 Yahushua, in connection with the judgment that will come all over the world, calls us to watch and pray, so that we may be able to escape all that will happen and be presented before the Son of man. And in Revelation 3:10 He promises to the congregation at Philadelphia, which is a type of the Bride, that He will keep them from the temptation that will come all over the world to tempt the earthlings. This promise is promised to them because they have kept the order to continue to expect Him.

Those who, by virtue of Yahushua's promise, believe that He will indeed save them from the great tribulation, and who meet the conditions, will be taken up before the great tribulation. They will at that moment, together with those who have died in Christ, receive their glorified bodies. They are the firstfruits of Revelation 14:1-5. They are the wise virgins of the parable that Yahushua tells in Matthew 25:1-13. They will enter the wedding hall as the Bride of Yahushua.

Those who believe or think that they will experience the great tribulation will indeed experience it. They will get according to their (un)belief. Those who are not ready when Jahushua comes to rapture His Bride will not be raptured either. They are the foolish virgins of the parable of Matthew 25:1-13. They will be purified in the fire of the great tribulation. Some will come out as gold, some will be tortured and killed, some will remain and some will be raptured when Yahushua returns to take up those invited. As Yahushua says in Matthew 25:13, the latter will have to watch because they know neither the day nor the hour of His return. For them, therefore, Yahushua comes as a thief in the night.

For His Bride of Revelation 14:1-5 on the other hand, Yahushua will not come unannounced. For she will hear the trumpet sounding and the cry: “Behold, the Bridegroom, go out and meet Him!” This will happen on a Sabbath and a Rosh ha Shanah. It is not known in advance which Sabbath and which Rosh ha Shanah it will be, but when the time comes, Yahweh will send the angel Gabriel to Elisabeth Elijah to give her the order to announce the coming of His Son. And whoever belongs to the Bride will hear that announcement and ascend in shining robes to meet Yahushua in the air.
All human calculations of the day of Yahushua's coming are wrong. They only bring confusion and despair. He will only come to the announcement by the only one Yahweh has called and anointed for it, and that is by Elisabeth Elijah.

Those who are at the first rapture will, like Yahushua after his resurrection, and together with the dead in Christ who shall be risen at that time, wander around the earth for fourty days in their glorified bodies. They will be able to pass through walls and doors like Yahushua, move around without means of transport, not be hurt or killed, make themselves invisible, appear in various forms, and not go hungry or thirsty, although they will be able to take food and drink if they so wish.
They will prove to the heathens that heaven is real, that Yahushua ha Mashiach is real and that death is not the end, but the beginning of either salvation or curse. For the guests, who are still in their mortal bodies, they will provide proof that Yahweh's promise of the rapture was not an empty promise and they will warn them not to accept the mark of the beast, help and assist them in the great tribulation they are going through, and prepare them for the wedding meal.

Apart from the firstfruits of Revelation 14:1-5, there are also the hundred and forty-four thousand sealed of Revelation 7:3-8. They also belong to the Bride, but will remain in the earth to fight against Satan and against those who have accepted the mark of the beast. They wil not have to endure the trial of the great tribulation that the foolish virgins must endure, for they have already been tested and found approved to be the Bride of Yahushua. Because they are sealed, they will not be hurt nor killed.

Just as the rapture of the prophet Elijah is the shadow of the rapture of the Bride of Revelation 14:1-5, the prophet Elisha is the shadow of the Bride who is left behind to fight. The Bride of Revelation 7:3-8 will receive the coat and the double anointing of Elijah.

The two witnesses of Revelation 11 are a man and a woman. They will be at the first rapture and then return to earth. In their glorified bodies they will fight against Satan and his army. They will not be hurt nor killed until their task is accomplished. Then they will be killed by a special devilish power, with Yahweh's permission, and then after three and a half days, they will get up in front of the whole world and ascend to heaven. Many pagans will still come to faith at the sight of it.

At the second rapture, the dead who died in Yahushua will rise first. The two witnesses and those who were killed in the great tribulation will be among the dead. Among the living who are changed without having to die are the bride of Revelation 7:3-8 and the survivors of the great tribulation who will then be purified.
