Latest from Unsealed | Pre-Trib Rapture Reasons

It is always a good day when Unsealed.org puts out a new article. Their latest from Gary is him listing his Top 10 reasons he believes in a Pre-Trib Rapture. He has a pretty good list of reasons and it is always interesting hearing which reasons have convinced others of the Blessed Hope (Titus 2:13).

There is one item Gary didn't include that I feel should be considered by all....The Jewish Wedding Pattern.  I have put 2 links below and a video that illustrate this view, but there is much more available online.  When you see this pattern and potential fulfillment at the rapture many verses such and John 14:2-3 jump off the page. Below is an excerpt from bridalcovenant.com:


The Rapture and the Jewish Wedding

There is an interesting parallel between a Jewish wedding and the Rapture. Only a Pre-Tribulation Rapture will fit into this scenario.

JEWISH WEDDING AND THE RAPTURE
There were three groups of people present at every Jewish wedding: the groom, the bride and the invited guests.  There will also be three groups of people involved in the marriage of the Lamb.

The Groom
This is Jesus 2 Corinthians 11:2, Ephesians 5:23-27

The Bride
This is the Church 2 Corinthains 11:2, Eph. 5:22-32, Revelation 21:9-10

The Guests
Those saved after the Rapture Matthew 25:1-10

THREE ASPECTS OF A JEWISH WEDDING
There were also 3 aspects of every Jewish wedding. The same is true with the marriage of the Lamb.

The Wedding Contract (Betrothal)
This is when a person is saved by accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior. ~ 2 Corinthians 11:2

The Wedding Ceremony (Groom receives Bride)
This is the Rapture. John 14:2-3 and Revelation 19:7 literally reads, "The marriage of the Lamb came and His wife prepared herself." The wedding already occurred in heaven at the Rapture, and now the Lamb and the Church are about to return to earth for the wedding feast. This parallels what Jesus said in Luke 12:36, "And be like men who are waiting for their master when he returns from the wedding…"

The Wedding Feast (Guests are invited to the celebration)
This is the Second Coming. Matthew 25:1-10. "Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb." Revelation 19:9 A bride is not invited to her own wedding! The Church was married to Christ at the Rapture and the wedding feast will occur on earth after the Second Coming. Those people saved after the Rapture will be invited to participate in the wedding feast.

Here is my favorite online pastor explaining this concept:

  1. If you are reading this and do not have a heart to heart relationship with the Lord and Savior of all people, Jesus Christ, I urge you to please seek Him with all of your heart and soul and give your life to Him as He so readily, lovingly and unashamedly gave His for you. Whatever form of Rapture you do or don't believe in or any other opinion you have, if you don't have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ you have nothing. There is no one else and no ther name that can save you from sin and death. Jesus will not beg you to come. But I pray for you and all who know Him pray for you to come to Him. He loves us all beyond all comprehension and promised to never leave us or forsake us. Please seek Him while He may be found. Get to know Jesus through prayer and reading the Bible. It is that simple. He is waiting for you to talk to Him. He loves you so much and wants you so much that He died and rose to life again for you!
    Romans 10:9-17 says:
    that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “ Lord , who has believed our report?” So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before,
    Acts 3:18‭-‬20 NKJV

    People share Jesus Christ because Jesus loves you. This website and all of the other websites about God exist because He loves you and He is trying to get your attention! Brad (site owner) loves you, I love you, every follower of Jesus Christ loves you, but most importantly God loves you! Please give your life to Him today and make Him Lord and Savior of your life. Jesus is waiting to share an eternity of love with you. God bless you!

  2. Frank, thank you so much for sharing this heartfelt plea. The Gospel should be first and foremost on our minds today. I am sure that this sign has caught the attention and curiosity of many unbelievers but if we tell them about the sign but fail to tell them about Jesus Christ and what they must do to be saved, well then we have failed miserably. Thank you so much for sharing these words... I pray they are read and believed those who have yet to form a relationship with our Lord and Savior.

  3. Hey there,

    How is your marriage going? Be honest…how is it ACTUALLY going?

    If you’re reading this e-mail right now, then chances are your marriage isn’t what it used to be… and maybe it’s so bad, that you feel like your world is falling apart.

    You feel like you and your wife can’t stop yelling at each other.

    And maybe you feel that there’s almost nothing you can do to save your marriage, no matter how hard you try.

    But you’re wrong.

    You CAN save your marriage — even if your wife says she wants to get a divorce. You CAN rebuild that passion you felt for one another when you first kissed. And you can bring back that love and devotion you felt for one another when both of you said, “I love you” for the first time.

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
