Traditionally there are three main harvested crops in Israel: Barley, Wheat, and Grapes. In the last days and end times, these three crops symbolize three raptured Firstfruits’ Harvests of Souls. Respectively, these raptured Firstfruits’ Harvests of Souls are: Barley Overcomers (Bride of Christ), Tribulation Wheat Believers (Martyred Saints), and Grapes “New Wine” (Filled with the Holy Spirit 144,000).
The Holy Bible is a Jewish book—an Israel and Jerusalem-centric Middle Eastern book. Too many Americans tend to forget this truth, especially when they try to explain away the obvious, in respect to where the Antichrist will arise, what ethnic group he belongs to, and of which “religion” he will embrace.
The only English definition of Rapture that should matter to believers in Christ Jesus is: “The transporting of a person from one place to another, especially to heaven, by supernatural means.” The second issue that should matter to believers in Christ Jesus is whether or not there is a solid precedent for future Raptures, mainly the Rapture of the Bride of Christ. The Word of God gives Enoch’s Translation/Rapture as that solid precedent. Lastly, believers in Christ Jesus need to know if what happened to Enoch is what the Word of God says will happen to the Bride of Christ. The answer is YES, because it will be with the Bride of Christ as it was with Enoch: 1. A literal physical removal (an act of the Holy Spirit); 2. A sudden disappearance of faithfully righteous man; and 3. An impending godly judgment/wrath!
The ORIGINAL texts of the New Testament, in which the Rapture concept is found, are Greek NOT English. Therefore, just because the English word Rapture is not in any particular English translation of the Holy Bible that doesn’t mean that the concept of a Rapture is not in the Holy Bible, because it most definitely is there, and this concept begins with Enoch’s Translation.
The old adage of ‘you are what you eat’ certainly is applicable in the natural as well as in the spiritual sense. Bottom line is that excessive sugar and excessive junk food in a spiritual diet have the potential of negatively changing believers’ overall spiritual health!
God restores, and He largely specializes in broken hearts and broken lives. Thus, for God, there is no destruction, injury, harm, or loss that is irreparable, because He alone is able to achieve the presumably impossible!
Even when it looks like we have reached a “game over” chapter in our lives, God’s Hope in us supernaturally floats up and changes everything!
