OLD COVENANT/TESTAMENT TYPES
*(Yahshua is the original Name of the Son of YAHWEH Elohim (God)and it should never have been changed)
Old Covenant (Testament) types confirm the Pre-tribulation Rapture. Yahshua the Messiah (Christ) said, ‘As the days of Noah,’ and ‘as the days of Lot,’ so shall the coming of the Son of Man be.
- Enoch, the man of YAHWEH Elohim (God) who was caught up to heaven before the flood, is a picture of the church which will be taken away before the Tribulation.
- Noah, and his family, are a type of Israel which is preserved through the time of wrath.
- Lot and his two daughters, who were caught away from Sodom before the fire fell, are a type of the church who will be caught up before this world burns in the Tribulation.
AMBASSADORS MUST BE WITHDRAWN
“We are ambassadors for Messiah/Christ.” 2 Corinthians 5:20
All born again believers have become citizens of Heaven and are ambassadors for the King of Glory.
Before a war or a pending major disaster, a country’s ambassadors must be recalled to their own country.
The Pre-tribulation Rapture teaching is based on a literal interpretation of Scripture. In fact, this is the only view which allows a literal interpretation of all Old Covenant (Old Testament) and New Covenant (New Testament) passages on the Tribulation.
It is not based on natural desires to escape suffering and the terrible time of wrath, but rather, it is based on the principle of sound interpretation of the Word of YAHWEH Elohim (God).
The Pre-tribulation Rapture, we believe, harmonizes the relevant passages, without strained arguments. It does not confuse the Church with Israel and the nations, and YAHWEH Elohim's (God’s) dealings with each of them.
It recognizes the differences between the chastening of YAHWEH, and the wrath of YAHWEH Elohim (God); the age of grace, and the 70th week; the provision for exemption for the Bride, and the preservation of saints in the Tribulation.
We do not claim that we have produced faultless “arguments,” but we do believe that this is a consistent and balanced interpretation, that gives YAH Elohim (God) the glory, and that presents the Rapture as the imminent and . . .
which is both purifying, and a
constant comfort for all who eagerly await
the Master’s return.
Yahshua the Messiah is coming soon!
