The Word “Rapture” is not in the Scriptures

I hear this word used so much by mislead and deceived Christians that it just blows my mind. As believers/2nd coming Messianic's we do need to remember what the book of Revelations/Raz Galah/Secrets Revealed says:

Scripture is taken from KJV and Revised Standard and edited to remove blasphemous names (Rev. 17:3), words and titles and to give a more Iybriy/Hebrew rooted understanding; edited also because the "Mother of Harlots" has inserted these names to cover up the names of YaHVeH/יהוה and HIS Ben Yahvshua/יהושׁוּע, and to counterfeit a Babylonian Greco-Roman "god", "lord" "Jesus" "Christ"…etc. and promote its demonic idolatrous pagan customs and "holidays" by replacing YaHVeH's Sabbaths (Dan. 7:25).

Revelation: 22:18: For I testify to every man that hears the words of the naba/foretelling of this book, If any man shall add to these things, YaHVeH shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book:

Re: 22:19: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this naba, YaHVeH shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the kodesh city, and from the things which are written in this book.

The word "Rapture" is no where used in the Scriptures. Doctrines of men should not be used to explain the Kodesh/Set apart Scriptures.

Matith'Yah/Matthew: 15:9: But in vain they do worship ME, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

When the "great tribulation"/"Ya'akob's Trouble" comes, YaHVeH's Ekklesia/Called Out/Body of Yahshua/Moediym will still be on this earth! That is what the Scriptures teaches! The first four seals in Revelations chapter 6 lead up to the "great tribulation". It is going to last 3 ½ years (Refer to Revelation 11 and Daniel 7:25). During that time some of YaHVeH's people will be protected and many will not.

Re: 6:9: And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the lives of them that were slain for the Word of YaHVeH, and for the testimony, which they held:

Re: 6:10: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Rabbi, kadosh and true, do YOU not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

Re: 6:11: And white robes were given to every one of them; and it was said to them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

There will only be two branches on the seven branch Menorah/Lamp Stand, which represents the Ekklesia/Body of Yahshua that are protected during the great tribulation and that will be the Philadelphia branch and the Smyrna branch; but the Smyrna branch will be protected for only 1,250 days of the "great tribulation", the last tens days of that period they will suffer persecution (Rev. 2:10). 

Re: 3:7: And to the malak of the ekklesia in Philadelphia write; These things said He that is kadosh, He that is true, He that has the key of David, He that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens;

Re: 3:8: I know your works: observe, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

Re: 3:9: Observe, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Yahudiym, and are not, but do lie; observe, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.

Re: 3:10: Because you have kept the word of My patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come on all the world, to try them that dwell on the earth.

Re: 3:11: Observe, I come quickly: hold that fast which you have, that no man takes your crown.

During the 3-½ years (1,260 days/42 months/3.5 years) the two witnesses will be preaching. At the end of there witnessing the two witness’ will be put to death by the ruler of the beast power, which is possessed by Abaddon (Satan). In that time frame of the two witness’ death, the shamayim signs will appear, YaHVeH's Malakiym will begin marking HIS people:

Re: 7:3: Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our Elohiym in their foreheads.

I say this because the two witnesses’ are to lay dead for all to see for 3-½ days:

Re: 11:9: And they of the people and kindred's and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not allow their dead bodies to be put in graves.

After the 3-1/2 days are over the men are resurrected:

Re: 11:11: And after three days and an half the Ruach of life from YaHVeH entered into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell on them which saw them.

Re: 11:12: And they heard a great Voice from shamayim saying to them, Come up here. And they ascended up to shamayim in a cloud; and their enemies observed them.

We know that the dead in Mashiyach and those that are alive will be changed at the return of the Rabbi Yahshua the Mashiyach, when the Last Trumpet/Shophar is sounded.

Re: 10:7: But in the days of the Voice of the seventh Malak, when He shall begin to sound, the mystery of YaHVeH should be finished, as HE has declared to HIS servants the nabiym/foretellers.

1Co: 15:52: In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1Th: 4:16: For the Rabbi Himself shall descend from shamayim with a shout, with the Voice of the arch-Malak, and with the trump of  YaHVeH: and the dead in Mashiyach shall rise first:

We as YaHVeH's people (believers) should not get overly concerned with the death and suffering of our physical bodies. Our bodies are dying to Mashiyach, to be changed and raised to something much more splendid. 

1Co: 15:52: In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

The Word of YaHVeH does not teach a per-tribulation rapture and does not use the word "rapture". YaHVeH's called out will not be lifted off this earth until the last trump (7th trumpet) is sounded. When that happens, we the kadoshiym (those that are dead and resurrected and those that are alive and changed at Mashiyach's return) will ascend to meet the Rabbi Yahshua in the air, then we will descend on the Mount of Olives with the Sar of Shalom to set up YaHVeH's Government.

This is the verse Christians misuse to their own deception. From E-Sword Strong's Concordance:

1Thessalonians 4:17 Then1899 we2249 which are alive2198 and remain4035 shall be caught up726 together260 with4862 them846 in1722 the clouds3507 to meet1519, 529 the3588 Rabbi2962 in1519 the air:109 and2532 so3779 shall we ever3842 be2071 with4862 the Rabbi.2962

The word in the Greek  is not "rapture" but:

G726

ἁρπάζω

harpazō

har-pad'-zo From a derivative of G138; to seize (in various applications): - catch (away, up), pluck, pull, take (by force).

This article is to be continued. I will explain YaHVeH willing the historical roots of this false doctrine when time permits.
