 To Translate Means To Rapture

Google defines a rapture as,

“(according to some millenarian teaching) the transporting of believers to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.”

People believe that, at the second coming, God raises the dead in Christ, and those who are alive will be caught up in a cloud.  This rapture is just like happened to Jesus.

Luke says,

“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.”

Acts 1:9

God moves us between heaven and earth through translation

In the main, people don’t understand what raptures are.  In its most basic form, God uses translation to move people and things from one place or realm to another.  He does this because you cannot move between heaven and earth any other way.

The first rapture occurred shortly after Adam and Eve sinned.  Though Earth was to be the seat of God’s government, after sin entered the world, God left.  The way in which God left is through translation, exactly like happened to Jesus on the mount of olives.  Our Father, along with the angels, cherubim, and Seraphim, translated everything into the heavenly realm. The City of God literally rose from the Earth and disappeared into a cloud. This cloud is the Shekinah Glory which produces clouds when it manifests here on earth. Not only that, but God translated the tree of life too.  That is why you see the original tree of life restored when the city of God comes back to the earth.

Raptures translate us

All raptures stem from that first rapture.  Any time God taks a person from earth into heaven , or back again, it is through translation.  This is because you cannot travel to heaven through natural means.  No one goes to heaven except by rapture.  Heaven exists outside this universe, therefore, to cross that divide you must be translated by God.

Though there is a great reaping at the end of time which involves a universal translation, raptures have been going on ever since God moved His kingdom into heaven.  Enoch, Elijah, Jesus, possibly Paul, and John are just a few of the raptures we know about.  However, I believe there have been and will be many more raptures that we are not aware of.  We don’t know what happened to Mary, Jesus’s mother, but I would not be surprised if God “caught up” the mother of His son before she passed away.

Natural minded people cannot know the things of God

Natural minded men and women cannot know the things of God’s Spirit.  People do not see God’s truth because it does not make sense in the context of this natural realm. Only by allowing God’s Holy Spirit to lead and guide us into the mysteries of His Kingdom do these truths reveal themselves.

I am not talking gnostic knowledge here.  There is nothing secret or super difficult about these truths.  God revelatin is avaliable to anyone who will listen.  We can easily understand the things of God, but only from His perspective. Unless we view what He says from His vantage point, we never come to a knowledge of the truth.

You may be the smartest person in the world, but if you only see things from down in a deep ravine, you never see the vista from the mountain top. However, if you climb that mountain, even though you are not very educated, everything is plainly visable. Likewise, until you stop figuring things out by your natural mind, and simply allow our Father to tell you how things are, you will never arrive at the correct conclusion.

Let God give you His perspective

With God’s perspective many other things, previously obscure, start to make sense. The first rapture occured when God took His kingdom to heaven. I know this because of the revelation of the mountain of the house of the Lord. God simply revealed to me this was the case and, when I looked at the scriptures, I realized it was there all along.

The truths of God are eternal and they are vast. Our finite minds cannot begin to grasp the immesnity of a timeless realm. You just don’t know where to begin to look. People make a grave mistake when they attempt to understand a spiritual book through their natural intellect. It is through the Spirit of Truth that we have access to the mind of God. Only with the mind of Christ can we understand the things of the Holy Spirit. Therefore I know, again only through revelation, that YHWH restores His kingdom to earth in exactly the manner that He took it; through translation.

The restoration of all things

John says,

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

Revelation 21:1-3
