Rapture - Sabbath day connection #ccot End is here #Maranatha
Is it possible that perhaps the Rapture of the Church might take place at the opening of the Sabbath day ( Saturday ) sometime in the future?
Romans 14:10 ....."But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.
2 Corinthians 5:10 ...."For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad."
I have often wondered if perhaps the "Bema Seat of Christ" might possibly take place on the "Sabbath day." The Sabbath represents "rest" in Scripture. Could it be then that perhaps the Church will be completed and in heaven on the Sabbath day in order to appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ? The theme of the "Sabbath rest" is all through Scripture.
Genesis 2:2....By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.
Hebrews 4:9....."So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.
Will God therefore be consistent and follow this pattern concerning the "Sabbath rest" in Scripture, and therefore translate the Church into heaven to be "home for the Sabbath" on some future Sabbath day? It is a mind stimulating thought to ponder!
National Israel who has been and who still is in "national unbelief " of her Messiah will NOT get her "spiritual restoration and physical rest" Until they first recognize Jesus as their true Messiah. This doesn't take place Until the END of Daniel's 70th week / seven years of tribulation period. And so it will be that Israel will finally be restorted to the Lord spiritual and physically at the time of Christ's second advent to the earth.
The Church ( the body of Christ ) on the otherhand has already received the forgiveness of all her sins past, present, and future, and therefore she has been spiritually restored unto God by have putting her faith and trust in the death, burial, and resurrection of God's Son, Jesus Christ. Therefore the Church "positionally" is eternally in right standing before God and is under no condemnation whatsoever ( Rom. 8:1 ). But the Church has not as of yet experienced her "physical rest" which is yet future. This will take place at the time of the resurrection / Rapture of the Church when it is completed. Each member of the body of Christ will receive their new glorified bodies at that time ( Eph. 4:30 - physical redemption / the glorification of the earthly body ).
Here are some very interesting gematria's below.

Question: Who is the "Judgment Seat of Christ" appointed for?
Answer: The Church, the body of Christ who will have their works for Christ examined, and then rewarded accordingly.
Therefore we will add the gematria value for Church to the number 1862.

1862 + 155 = 2017

In Hebrew the phrase...."El Shaddai" means..."Lord God almighty."

This is exciting to me since we are presently in the Jewish year of 5777.

The first and the last letters of the Hebrew alphabet ( Aleph and Tav ) represent Jesus / Yeshua, just like the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet ( Alpha and Omega ) stand for Jesus who is the first and the last, the beginning and the end. The Hebrew spelling of the phrase "The sign" therefore can read...."The Aleph and Tav." Look below. Remember that Hebrew reads from right to left.
