( 1 ). The reader will notice that we have put words in parenthesis in the various Bible verses, this is done to help the student have a better understanding of the old King James language which is often a little bewildering to some folks who are not use to that kind of speech. Therefore, please bear with us as we teach the message. A good idea would be to read your Bible along with each verse we have quoted.

( 2 ). We believe that it is a must that this thesis be circulated with the blessed hope that many lost folks who have failed to become Christians after the BODY OF CHRIST has been Resurrected into the Heavens, will read it and be led to become Children of GOD by the messages contents. There is a definite belief among many Theologians and other Bible students that the above mentioned Resurrection is very close at hand.

( 3 ). There is also a general feeling among wide awake Children of GOD and also among the national leaders, and yes even among the average citizen, of impending doom occurring just around the corner, which will concern this entire worlds civilization. Those of us that are looking for the return of the LORD JESUS CHRIST are completely aware of the terrible judgments that await those hordes of humanity who will be left behind at the 'Rapture [ Resurrection' ] of the Saints that are today called "The BODY OF CHRIST."

( 4 ). From the very beginning and on through the seven year Tribulation Period will be judgments poured out by the wrath of Almighty GOD. And this, upon a world that has ignored the Creator and what He has instituted as a just and rightful program for the worlds untold millions of residents. No Born again Child of GOD should rest until they organize a force of Christians into an Army of GOD and pursue the unsaved hordes of people who are in a lost condition, and try to lead them to CHRIST.

( 5 ). This whole world is headed for destruction and judgment. Therefore, the concerned Christian should go into every home and witness to every person with a message of warning and instruction on what they should do before it is to late. Messages such as this, should be circulated and copied by the untold millions in order to keep people from being left behind after the above mentioned Resurrection. No concerned Child of GOD should be without concern concerning the plight of those whom are bound to be left behind after we have left this earth with CHRIST at the Resurrection of the Saints!

( 6 ). Leaving behind the light of the LORD's Word can be one of the greatest endeavors for the Christian of this age. During the Tribulation Period, the one World Ruler that the WORD of GOD calls the Antichrist, a potentate filled with evil and carnality, will force his will on the people and cause a false gospel to be preached by wicked men and women. He will propagate his gospel and mark into the very heart during the last half of that seven year period.

( 7 ). It is a marvelous thing to know during this present time that folks can receive spiritual Bible knowledge by attending a place of worship in their own community any time they chose to do so. If you as a the Child of GOD will choose to spread the LORD's Word among the people, you can be assured that because of your calling and aggressive fortitude for the cause of CHRIST, lost people will be saved!

( 8 ). But should you fail GOD and decide not to do your part, you can be sure that some lost souls will fail to be saved and they will perish and spend eternity in perdition. Remember this, all Christians are ordained as ministers and Ambassadors of CHRIST, please don't fail your Saviour the LORD JESUS who died for you. And remember ... because of His death, you are now a Child of GOD the FATHER. Read { 2- Corinthians 5:14- on to Ch. 6:4 }.

Concerning Those That Have Missed The Resurrection Of The BODY OF CHRIST ...

( 9 ). All those swift moving events in the national, political, and religious world, which is proceeding to fulfill many long standing prophecies, gives us a clear and unmistakable testimony to the fact of the imminent return of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Concerning this message, we will give several Scripture passages to prove the authenticity of the subject. As you know, the Bible is its own interpreter.

The LORD JESUS CHRIST Is Personally Coming Again! ...


( 10 ). { V. 2 } Scripture ... "In MY FATHER's house are 'many mansions [ dwelling places' ], if it were not so, I would have told you. I go and prepare a place for you.

( 11 ). { V. 3 }: And 'if [ when' ] I go and prepare a place for you, "I WILL COME AGAIN," and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there you may be also, { John 14:2-3 }."


( 12 ). { V. 10 } Scripture: "And while they looked steadfastly toward Heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

( 13 ). { V. 11 } which also said, you men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into Heaven? 'THIS SAME JESUS, which is taken up from you into Heaven, shall also come in like manner as you have seen Him go into heaven, { Acts 1:10-11 }."


( 14 ). The above { Vs. 10-11 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 15 ). { 10 }: "And while 'they [ the multitude of people' ] 'looked steadfastly [ and intently up' ] toward Heaven as 'He [ CHRIST' ] was 'translated up [ into Heaven' ]: Behold, 'two men, [ GOD's Angelic witnesses' ] stood by 'them [ i.e., the disciples of CHRIST etc.' And, these angels who was in plain sight of this host of witnesses, were dressed ] in 'white apparel, [ that is, in robes of righteousness' ..., and the angels uttered a prophecy that had been predicted in the Old Testament, and ]; ...

( 16 ). { 11 } They 'said [ in a prophetic manner' ], you men of Galilee, why are you standing gazing up into the Heavens? 'THIS SAME [ SON OF MAN' ] 'JESUS [ the CHRIST', 'Israel's rejected KING and MESSIAH,' ], 'which is now taken up from you into [ The Paradise of ] Heaven', shall also 'come [ back to this very earth' ] in 'like manner Just' as you 'have seen Him [ Raptured up' ] 'into heaven [ from the Mount of Olives' ]," { Acts 1:10-11 }." READ { Zechariah 14:4 }.


( 17 ). Commentary ... In the above verses, the prophecy was given by the Angels. In Zechariah the fulfillment of the prophecy will take place. As you can see, even Angels were used by the LORD as prophets at various times.

( 18 ). In { Matthew Ch. 25:1-13 }, we find the marriage of the LAMB OF GOD foretold in a parable. This following parable has to do with the saved Remnant of Israel that will make herself ready for her Bridegroom MESSIAH at His Second Advent.

( 19 ). This Above has absolute nothing to do with the BODY OF CHRIST of this Grace Age. We will have already been Raptured, our earthly works judged, and we will have received our rewards in Heaven at the judgment seat of CHRIST before this parable reaches its fulfillment. ...


( 20 ). { V. 1 ] Scripture: "Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the BRIDEGROOM.

( 21 ). { V. 2 }: And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

( 22 ). { V. 3 }: They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them.

( 23 ). { V. 4 }: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

( 24 ). { V. 5 }: 'While the BRIDEGROOM tarried they all slumbered and slept.

( 25 ). { V. 6 }: And at midnight, there was a cry made, behold, the BRIDEGROOM comes; go you out to meet Him.

( 26 ). { V. 7 }: Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

( 27 ). { V. 8 }: And the foolish said to the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

( 28 ). { V. 9 }: But the wise answered, saying, not so; lest there be not enough for us and you, but go you rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

( 29 ). { V. 10 }: And while they went to buy, the BRIDEGROOM came; and they that were ready went in with Him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

( 30 ). { V. 11 }: Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, LORD, LORD, open to us.

( 31 ). { V. 12 }: But He answered and said, verily I say unto you, I know you not.

( 32 ). { V. 13 } 'Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the SON OF MAN comes, { Matthew 25:1-13 }."


( 33 ). The above { Vs. 1-13 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 34 ), { 1 } ... "Then shall 'the [ earthly Millennial' ] Kingdom 'of [ and from' ] Heaven be likened unto 'ten [ Hebrew' ] virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet their BRIDEGROOM.


( 35 ). Commentary ... There is no doubt that there were various phases to Jewish weddings, bit one was: "First the bridegroom went to the bride's home to obtain his bride and observe certain religious ceremonies. Then he took his bride to his own home for a resumption of the festivities."

( 36 ). MESSIAH, this future BRIDEGROOM, will take the saved of Israel to the place the marriage is to be administered, and afterwards will commence the marriage supper right here on this earth. And some, believe that this great supper may proceed throughout the Entire Millennial Reign of MESSIAH.

( 37 ). The Virgin Bride as we have referred to many time in the past, will consist of, [ NO- 1 ]: the professing Hebrew Remnant, those Jews whom were saved during the Tribulation Period, [ NO- 2 }: the Jews whom were saved, beheaded for rejecting the mark of the beast and were in Paradise of Heaven until the Second Advent, [ NO- 3 ]: and all the Old Testament Saints that had died and were transferred up into Paradise of Heaven beforehand, and will return with Him at His Second advent as the KING OF KINGs!!!!!


( 38 ). { 2 }: And 'five of them [ I.e., perhaps as much as half of the Hebrew nation' became saved during that seven year testing period and therefore became ] 'wise [ sensible, intelligent, prudent and were born again as Christian Saints' ], and five 'were [ i.e., remained' ] 'foolish [ Thoughtless, not really concerned, without forethought and remained unbelievers' ].

( 39 ). { 3 }: They that 'were [ very' ] foolish [ 'but nevertheless ] took their lamps', and took no oil with them. [ Oil is a type of the HOLY SPIRIT. This means that they were not indwelt with the HOLY SPIRIT and were in an unsaved condition ].

( 40 ). { 4 }: But 'the wise [ who had become saved during the Tribulation' ] took [ flasks of ] "oil [ along with them also" ] in their vessels' with their lamps. [ They had Oil: "the HOLY SPIRIT indwelling them" ].

( 41 ). { 5 }: 'While the BRIDEGROOM tarried [ present tense during this Grace Age', ] they all slumbered and slept. [ As Israel ..., and most of the rest of humanity are doing today ].


( 42 ). Commentary ... Israel today is presently for the most part in a "blind condition to CHRIST" during this Age of Grace. As to MESSIAH tarrying, this is a picture of CHRIST abiding at the right hand of the GOD THE FATHER in Heaven for the last 2000 years, which makes people think He is slow in His Second Coming back to this earth. But at the end of the Tribulation, at ...


( 43 ). { 6 }: And 'at midnight [ future tense' ], there was a cry made, behold, the 'BRIDEGROOM [ the MESSIAH', the KING OF KING's is at the door, here He: ] comes; go you out to meet Him.

( 44 ). { 7 }: Then 'all those virgins arose [ put in order' ], and trimmed their lamps.

( 45 ). { 8 }: And the 'foolish [ who were luke-warm and no doubt were unsaved apostates' ] said to the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are 'gone [ going' ] out. [ They were living in spiritual darkness as we have before stated ... are many people today ].

( 46 ). { 9 }: But the [ 'saved that were ] wise' answered, saying, not so; lest there be not enough for us and you, but 'go you rather [ to the dealers' ] to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. [ And we repeat, "They were living in spiritual darkness." All people must provide their own oil. All can be saved through the Grace of GOD just by asking the LORD to save them. By faith are you saved! It is a free gift of GOD!!! Read { John 3:16 }.

( 47 ). { 10 }: And 'while they [ that still remained in an unsaved condition' ] went to buy, "the [ MESSIAH ] BRIDEGROOM" came; and they 'that were ready [ and thus were indwelt by the HOLY SPIRIT' ] went in with Him to the marriage: and the door [ to salvation ] was shut. [ No second chance after that ]!!!!!

( 48 ). { 11 }: 'Afterward [ once again': ] came also the 'other [ unsaved blind and slothful ] virgins,' saying, LORD, LORD, open [ the door ] to us.

( 49 ). { 12 }: But 'He [ MESSIAH Whom had already received His Bride' ]: answered and said, 'verily I [ solemnly declare' and ] say unto you, 'I [ am not acquainted with you' ] and don't even know you.

( 50 ). { 13 } 'Watch therefore [ give strict attention and be cautious and active' ], for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the SON OF MAN comes, { Matthew 25:1-13 }."


( 51 ). Commentary ... In type, even though these verses is applied to Israel in the future, they can also in a secondary way be a warning to folks in this present Age of Grace. In { V. 13 }, the words "SON OF MAN," is never mentioned in connection with the BODY OF CHRIST of today.


( 52 ). SON OF MAN is CHRIST's special title in relation to the Hebrew nation. As we look at the above parable we find that five are foolish. And as we approach the end of the Tribulation Period, it is just hours before the return of the coming MESSIAH.

( 53 ). The whole world and especially Israel, will have been instructed by "the 1,44000 Hebrew Ministers of { Revelation 7:2-8 }." ... And, of the "two prophets of { Revelation Ch. 11 } who preach throughout the first 3 and 1/2 years of that period." ... And also even of an angel of GOD, flying through the air around this earth "preaching the Everlasting Gospel" ... "to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people."

( 54 ). This will be GOD's last call of Grace to the people of this world before the return of MESSIAH in His anger and judgment. Read { Revelation 14:6 }.

( 55 ). The Bride at that Tribulation hour, is warned to be watching for her BRIDEGROOM to return that He might preserve and protect her. But many of these folks, will fail drastically to heed the advice and we find that five of these virgins are of this unsaved group.

( 56 ). Then we find that as the above text portrays, there are another five of these Hebrew virgins which opened their eyes and became very wise by believing the truth of those who had administered to all the earth dwellers. . . .

( 57 ). "They received the HOLY SPIRIT, that is, they have oil which is a type of the HOLY SPIRIT, in their lamps, and they have made themselves ready, for their BRIDEGROOM, { Revelation 19:7 }." But these other five virgins, have not really believed in the true MESSIAH.

( 58 ). We find that they are pictured here at the end of the Tribulation Period as being unprepared and that they had continually failed to believe. They in their hard-hearted, hard-headed ignorance, had remained in their blinded "know it all condition" of self reliance, will remain in that unsaved condition throughout all eternity without the indwelling of the HOLY SPIRIT in their hearts.

( 59 ). Therefore, they do not belong to the MESSIAH. When MESSIAH the BRIDEGROOM breaks into view and the cry is called forth, then He has been seen returning in the clouds of heaven, see { Acts 1:9-11, - & - Zechariah 14:4 }.

( 60 ). Those of the Israelites who are Saints will be united to their KING, the promised BRIDEGROOM. She [ the saved Remnant of Israel ] has made herself ready and the marriage will then take place. Israel as the Bride will enjoy the blessings that has been so long promised to her.

( 61 ). Those who have accepted the mark of the beast at that time, which actually will consist of by far the greatest percentage of earth's population, will be taken out and cast into outer darkness of hell, because they refused to believe.

( 62 ). 'Many [ like people today' ] may have Professed CHRIST but they DID NOT POSSES HIM. "Then shall the 'Kingdom of Heaven [ Millennial reign of MESSIAH on this earth' ] be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the BRIDEGROOM."


( 63 ). Even though the above texts are applied to the nation Israel, folks today should be aware that in typology the same thing can be applied to those of this very age who are not ready and are still in an unbelieving condition. Have you warned all of your family members of what is to come???

( 64 ). If you and your loved ones are left behind when the Resurrection of the BODY OF CHRIST takes place, it is evident that you have never received CHRIST as your personal Saviour.

( 65 ). Forgiveness must be accomplished through the baptism of the HOLY SPIRIT portrayed in { 1- Corinthians 12:13; - Romans 6:3-4; - & - Ephesians 4:5 }, which will solidify your eternal salvation, and rectify your forgiveness of sins.

( 66 ). Incidentally, the baptism in the three chapters just referred to have nothing to do with water baptism but only refer to the baptism of the HOLY SPIRIT which is a spiritual baptism that takes place at the very instant one is saved. No water is used and no tongues is uttered when this baptism is received.

( 67 ). If you were left behind, this means that you were not ready to go. You waited too long. The fact is, you must search your 'Heart [ mind' ] and see where you have gone wrong. Read { John 3:16-17 }.

( 68 ). If you have missed the Resurrection, you are going to have to go through the seven year Tribulation Period that will follow the Rapture.

( 69 ). We learn from the Scriptures that there will be untold multitudes of people that are left behind to go into that time of tribulation. Today people show their ungodly attitude toward their Creator GOD as is proven by radio, TV and newspapers. The satanic mood of Hollywood has blinded our politicians, news media, and the aristocratic domineering belief that GOD doesn't exist!

( 70 ). There is no fear of GOD throughout our society. People curse Him, revile Him, and reject Him and His Word constantly in public. This is portrayed with no shame whatsoever to show their constant unbelief making them guilty unto their eternal damnation.

( 71 ). The Great Tribulation will gather these ungodly CHRIST rejecters into its grasp and Satan will glory in their troublesome conditions. We find a warning given to the nation Israel and to every person on this earth concerning the Second Coming of MESSIAH at the end of the Tribulation Period, JESUS states ...


( 72 ). { V. 34 } Scripture: "I tell you, in that NIGHT there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

( 73 ). { V. 35 }: Two women shall be grinding 'together [ at the hand mill' ]; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

( 74 ). { V. 36 }: [ At that time ] Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left, Luke 17:34-36 }." ... Read { Matthew 24:37-42 }.


( 75 ). Commentary ... Even though this prophecy is applied to Israel and the Gentile nations at the time of the Second Coming of CHRIST when He judges the individuals of each of the worlds nations, this is a type of what is going to take place at the time the Rapture takes place for the BODY OF CHRIST before the Second Advent Of MESSIAH.

( 76 ). Those whom are taken in the above verses are all in a lost condition and will have taken the mark of the beast as is foretold in { Revelation 13:26-17 }. These folks will be taken and cast into hell.

( 77 ). The ones which are left, are the ones who are called sheep in { Matthew 25:32 } and are in a saved condition, thus, they will enter into the Millennial reign of MESSIAH and dwell on the earth throughout the entire Millennium.

( 78 ). Sometimes two or three of the LORD's Parables are talking about the same thing. The parable of the one taken and the other one left is speaking in typology about those whom were living during the time of Noah's Flood. And later about the parables fulfillment. Read on ...


( 79 ). Scripture: "But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the SON OF MAN be, { Matthew 24:37 }."


( 80 ). Commentary ... When we look backward to the great Flood of Noah's time we see that those that were taken were taken in death. They were drowned in the Flood water of the great deluge! Likewise those that were left were eight souls, Noah, his three sons and the wives of the four men. They were left to replenish the earth with people.

( 81 ). At the Second Return of MESSIAH, He will judge the world's nations which the parable of the Sheep and the goats are of the type of mankind as a whole at that time. Both the 'Sheep [ saved' ] and the 'Goats [ lost' ] that this parable mentions, { Matthew 25:31-46 } are therefore referring to one event in it conclusion. Thus, we have these two parables speaking of the same thing! Both of these parables refer to Israel and the nations that are in existence at the return of MESSIAH after the Great Tribulation has ended!

( 82 ). At the 'Rapture [ Resurrection' ] of the BODY OF CHRIST, those which are to be taken will be resurrected up into the clouds of the atmosphere of this earth to meet the LORD in the air . . .


( 83 ). { V. 16 } Scripture: "For the LORD Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of GOD: and the dead in CHRIST shall rise first:

( 84 ). { V. 17 }: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them to meet the LORD in the air: and so shall we ever be with the LORD.

( 85 ). { V. 18 }: Therefore comfort one another with these words, { 1- Thessalonians 4:16 - 18 }."


( 86 ). The above { Vs. 16-18 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 87 ). { 16 } Scripture: "For the LORD Himself shall descend from heaven with a 'shout [ a loud cry of summons' ], with the voice of the 'archangel [ Michael' ... even more likely it will be 'the voice of CHRIST Himself just as it was when JESUS called Lazarus from his grave { John 11:43-44 }' ..., and with 'the [ blast of the ] trumpet of GOD': and 'the dead [ bodies of those in the graves who are ] in CHRIST [ i.e., that belong strictly to the BODY OF CHRIST only at that time ] shall rise first:

( 88 ). { 17 }: Then we which are 'alive and remain [ on the earth' ] 'shall [ simultaneously' ] be caught up together with 'them [ i.e., those resurrected dead bodies of Saints whose souls had already gone to heaven at their time of Death beforehand' ] in 'the clouds [ of our world's atmosphere' ] to meet the LORD in the air: and so shall 'we ever [ through the eternity of the eternity's ]' be with the LORD.

( 89 ). { 18 }: 'Therefore comfort [ and be very diligent and earnestly encouraging' to ] one another with these words, { 1- Thessalonians 4:16 - 18 }."


( 90 ). { V. 51 } Scripture: "Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

( 91 ). { V. 52 }: In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed, { 1- Corinthians 15:51-52 }."


( 92 ). The above { Vs. 51-52 } paraphrased in commentary form ...

( 93 ). { 51 }: "Behold [ take particular notice' ], 'I show [ and tell' ] you a 'mystery [ a secret truth', an 'event decreed by the hidden purpose of GOD' ]; We shall 'not all [ fall a ] sleep [ in death' ], but we shall 'all be changed [ transformed' ],

( 94 ). { 52 }: In a moment, 'in the twinkling of an eye [ a minute split second' ], 'at the [ sound of the ] last trumpet [ call for the BODY OF CHRIST' ]: for the trumpet shall sound, 'and the dead [ in CHRIST' ] shall be raised 'incorruptible [ imperishable- free and immune from decay' ], and 'we shall be changed [ into spiritual bodies that will exist in Heaven forever' ], { 1- Corinthians 15:51-52 }."


( 95 ). Commentary ... As the reader can see, the Rapture portrays the saved as going up to meet the LORD, whereas at the Second Coming seven years later, those whom are taken, are taken to be cast into the hell of Sheol down below.

( 96 ). A picture of the way we will be changed at the Rapture of the BODY OF CHRIST is slightly similar as that of the movie serial of the "Hulk," that was shown on TV several years ago. A metamorphous took place and a slim boy was changed into a great Hulk of a giant man.

( 97 ). This might give the reader an idea of how Christians in their frail human bodies will be changed at the time of the Rapture. Naturally, both the dead Saints after leaving their graves, and we that are still alive will receive this change together at the same time!
