The Seven Mysteries
Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God
1 Corinthians 4:1
we are overcomes
Jesus Christ was the God man. John 1:14, Colossians 2:9
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
There is only one Body of Christ inwhich each believer John 3:1-7 is a member of 1 Corinthians 1:27 . This is Body is also called the Bride of Christ which is one Body, Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
This is a mystery which is knwon as the world wide curch, as their are many beleivers all over the world, and would be all caught up to meet the Lord in the air if Jesus returns in thier life time.
The Time of the Gentiles began when Jerusalem was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon under the reign of Zedekiah King of Judah. The time of the Gentiles ends with the Literal return of Jesus Christ King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
1 Thessalonians 4:17
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
The Church, The Body of Christ known as The Bride of Christ will not suffer the prophecy of Daniels 70th week “ Jacobs trouble” concerning Israel, known as the Great Tribulation 2 Thessalonians 2:7-11, Matthew 24:15
This is Satans false religion, or false church which is destroyed in the midst of the seven year Tribulation.
Let us not be shaken in mind
2 Thessalonians 2:1-3:
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
What had shaken the beleivers minds was from an outward source that hadn’t come from Paul, a letter that said eighter they had missed out on meeting the Lord in the air (Our gathering unto him), and that they now had entered into Daniels seventieth week where the son of perdition was to be revealed. Paul had been teaching the thessalonians out the book of Daniel, not from the book of Revelation which was given to John on the ilse of Patmos. It was Jesus who called Daniels sevntieth week the Great tribulation Matthew 24:15-21 and never mentioned the church age to the Jews only the Tribulation and the second advent, this also applies with the prophecies from the Book of Daniel, as Daniel didnt see Israels rejection of their Messiah Acts seven, nor did Daniel see the revelation given to Paul Ephesians 3:1-6.
The pre-tribualtion rapture, concerning the church is Pauls doctrine, not Daniels and Jesus never mentioned it because he hadnt been rejected by those who he came to “the lost hosueof Israel”
That is why Paul said this letter they had receiced wasn’t from Him, but rather in the same chapter told them to onto the tradition as he had taught them. ( It wasnt Paul who was producing fear in the mind of the beleivers about Daniels sevintieth week in which Jesus had called it an unprecedented time in Matthew 24:21
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Paul’s pre – meleinail doctrine hasnt changed but doctrien is changed when minds are shaken when the Bible dosen’t seem to line up with the sign of the times, and before you know it the church has ended up in Daniels seventieth week, which Daniel didnt teach, Jesus Christ never taught it and niegther did Paul taeach it. But rarther Paul taught this dont let your mind be “shaken”.
It seems as we approach the third meleinium and especialy in the last twenty years or so Pauls pre- Tribulation rapture has been under attack. I beleive the reason
When people judge the Bible by a present day advent, they begin to change Bible doctrine so it can line up with signs of the times. This kind of thing has been going on for the last two thousand years, and has only got worse in the past twenty years as we approach the third millennium since Jesus Christ first advent where he died was buried and rose again the third day 1 Corinthians 15:1-4
Here is the good news, if you know you are saved and have trusted in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, you will meet the Lord in the air and be apert of his gathering, the Bride Christ. While this taking palce the son of perdition is revealed on earth 2 Thessalonians 2:3b-17 of which Paul had taught them out of the book of Daniel and also keep in mind the words of our Lord Jesus Christ when refering to Daniles seventieth week in Mathew 15-24 that this time ( the Great tribulation) is unprecedented meaning that there has been no time like it from the begining of the world nor will ther be after it.
The word of God hasn’t changed: only mens minds when shaken change the word of God
