With Jesus in the Rapture or left behind ... It's your choice



Jeremiah 52:31-34

And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, in the five and twentieth day of the month, that Evilmerodach king of Babylon in the first year of his reign lifted up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah, and brought him forth out of prison, 32 And spake kindly [1] unto him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings that were with him in Babylon, 33 And changed his prison garments: and he did continually eat bread before him all the days of his life. 34 And for his diet, there was a continual diet given him of the king of Babylon, every [2] day a portion until the day of his death, all the days of his life.

 2 Kings 25:27-30
 And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, that Evilmerodach king of Babylon in the year that he began to reign did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of prison; 28 And he spake kindly [1]to him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings that were with him in Babylon; 29 And changed his prison garments: and he did eat bread continually before him all the days of his life. 30 And his allowance was a continual allowance given him of the king, a daily rate for every day, all the days of his life.

Commentary:
" Those under oppression will find it is not in vain for them to hope and quietly to wait for the salvation of the Lord. Our times are in God's hand, for the hearts of all we have to deal with are so. May we be enabled, more and more, to rest on the Rock of Ages, and to look forward with holy faith to that hour, when the Lord will bring again Zion, and overthrow all the enemies of the church. (Matthew Henry Commentary)


For several days I've been waiting on the Lord and asking for confirmation regarding the soon coming rapture. Last night before going to bed, I was prompted by the Holy Sprit and opened my Bible of Jeremiah and studied these verses above.   A deeper study found 5 keys that I want to share taken from http://www.christadelphianbooks.org/agora/comm/24_jer/jer53.html


FREED HIM FROM PRISON: Cp Psa 107:14; 68:13; Col 1:13; 1Pe 2:9; Joh 11:44.

Jer 52:32

HE SPOKE KINDLY TO HIM: Cp Mar 5:36; Luk 7:50; 10:35; Joh 8:11; 20:19,20.

GAVE HIM A SEAT OF HONOR HIGHER...: Cp Eph 2:6; Joh 14:3; 17:24; Rev 3:21.


Jer 52:33

PUT ASIDE HIS PRISON CLOTHES: Cp Eze 16:9-14; Isa 61:10; Luk 15:22.

ATE REGULARLY AT THE KING'S TABLE: Cp Joh 6:35; Psa 107:9; Rev 7:17. 



What this means to me:   

RAPTURE:  

 A. Regardless of our sinful, lost condition, our pathetic state of being a captive of the devil, God truly wants to free us from prison,  of being slaves of sin under bondage. When we humble ourselves to him, God truly does deliver us if we by faith believe and allow Him to work in our lives. This is done by believing in/on/for the PERFECT SACRIFICE OF JESUS CHRIST...   John 11:44:  And he who was dead came forth...... And Jesus said,  "LOOSE HIM... LET HIM GO!  What this means in the ULTIMATE sense is:  GOD does not want us going to Hell. He wants us loose from the devil's grip trying to drag us into hell.  The Question is will you take God up on his offer by asking Jesus to save you???  WARNING:  If we refuse his offer, we are not free but in chains and bound to satan forever.  status: without Jesus...

B.  Before the door is shut (judgement day) Jesus speaks kindly to us saying,  "Come to me and I will give you rest."    WARNING:  After the door is shut, The lamb becomes a LION and smashes the unrepentant sinner like a clay pot with a rod of iron. Revelation 2:27. status: without Jesus...

C.  God wants to raise us up together with Christ Jesus to sit in high places.   WARNING:  If we refuse we are cast down into the pits of hell, the lake of fire, (Revelation 20:14) with the fallen angels and demons and the devil. ... status:  without Jesus...

D.  God wants to put a robe on us, with Jesus, to remove our prison clothes and clothe us in the holiness of His son.  WARNING:  If we refuse we are naked and destitute. Your garments are moth eaten (James 5:2)... status: without Jesus...

E.  God wants us to eat at His table with Jesus to have the fullness of what we can't even imagine.  WARNING:  If we refuse, we are cast out into outer darkness. (Matthew 25:30)... status: without Jesus...
