ESCAPISM OF THE RAPTURE VS. WALKING LIKE ENOCH

Did you know that there is no Biblical Pattern for the entire “Church” being raptured?

Because the rapture theory… Yes, I said, “theory”… Because the rapture theory currently taught by most of Christianity is an educated guess. It is not Scriptural the way we have been taught it, for two reasons: [1] Only two people were taken by God to heaven before they died – Elijah and Enoch – not their families, nor their tribes, nor their nation. Just them, because of their walk with God pleased Him. [2] The rapture theory is escapism, which bypasses people’s need to be fully transformed into the Messiah’s image on earth.

It is super significant that there are only two instances in Scripture where God took a human to be with Him before they died: Enoch and Elijah.

Most everyone knows the wonderful story of Elijah being taking up to heaven in a chariot of fire (II Kings 2:11). Please study this for yourself.

Most everyone also knows of the incredible and mysterious story of Enoch’s walk pleasing God so much that he was supernaturally taken by God from among the people-group of The Flood: “So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him” (Genesis 5:23-24 NKJV). “He answered, ‘Because I am Enoch the son of Jared. When the people-group of the flood sinned and did confuse things, they said to Yahweh, ‘Leave us, we don’t want to know about you,’ then the Sacred One – may He be blessed – removed me from them to be a witness against them in the high heavens to all the inhabitants of earth, so that they wouldn’t say, ‘The Merciful One is cruel.’” (III Enoch 4 – Excerpt). I go into much detail about this in STM’s “Enoch Walker’s Transformation” video => https://youtu.be/qEmmMjnz1Wc.

These two men, who were taken by God before they died, had lived sold-out lives. They endeavored to please the Lord at all times: “By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:5-6 NKJV).

Then we have the escaptology of the rapture. There is no escapism in Scripture that I can find, which allows God’s people to avoid their need to be fully transformed into the Messiah’s image on earth. If you study the modern theory (i.e., doctrine) of the rapture, you will discover that it was literally made up in the 1830s by John Nelson Darby after Miss Margaret McDonald had some visions where she saw Jesus Christ appearing in two stages during His second coming. This means that the “rapture” theory is not even two-hundred years old. Personally, I believe that Miss MacDonald’s visions were accurate, but not their interpretation. When I say that I disagree with the escaptology rapture theory, I am not eliminating the possibility (probability) of people being refined into the image of Christ and being taken by God like Enoch.

Most people who believe in the rapture believe that it includes everyone who has accepted Messiah Yeshua as Lord and Savior… no matter how these people have lived their lives and if their lives please God, or not. The “rapture” does not take into account His people need to press toward the goal of the upward call in Christ Jesus to abound in the work of the Lord in order to be formed into His image. Therefore, this does not fit the pattern for the two people who were taken by God to heaven before they died. The ultimate cost to the upward call of God in Christ Jesus is counting all things in this material world as loss to gain oneness with Messiah Yeshua.

Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. … For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself” (Philippians 3:8-15,20-21 NKJV).

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (I Corinthians 3:17-18 NKJV).

“However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory.’ ‘O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?’ The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord” (I Corinthians 15:46-58 NKJV).

The reason I keep coming back to this subject is that if the rapture does not happen how most Christians think it will, most will be distraught and disheartened, even suicidal. May it never be. Escapism is not the answer. Engagement is. We all need to have the heart and mind to carry on to the utmost for His highest. Not only does the world need Christ in you, the hope of glory (the harvest is ripe); but you need to be faithful to allow the Lord to form you into His own image. How do we do this? The simplest formula that I have come up with for my own life is first love and serve God; and then, love and serve all humanity. Choose to be humble and teachable every day; and seek to do the perfect will of the Father, like Yeshua did (John 5:19).

Give em heaven!!!

STEPPING INTO THE COUNCIL OF GOD

arch purple gold door

Focus on Yeshua (Jesus). We begin to worship God. We sense activity and hear: “Come. Come. Come, My Beloved.”

We see wind flowing before His Throne, making a horizontal figure eight, like a bow. As the winds flow, the sides echo their praise declaring: “Holy! Holy! Holy!” which echoes back and forth… back and forth… back and forth… We hear the word: “Preparation.” The heavenly host are not only worshipping, but preparing for something.

We (as a group) stand in front of the Figure-8 wind. From the middle of the wind, we hear: “Come. Come.” We sense that we are to walk into a vortex that appears to be some sort of door or gateway. We pulsate at the same frequency as the Wind of Infinity before the Throne. We see a throng of people bowing in rhythm with the Figure-8 Wind, and we sense their frequency is the same as the Wind of Infinity.

We become ONE, as we walk through the door. On the chest of the ONE is a pulsating frequency moving in a circular pattern. It is the same frequency as the horizontal-8 and the waves bowing before the Throne. We see over us a purple and gold arch formed by the rapid pulsating back and forth frequency.

We ask the LORD where He brought us. We hear that He is showing us how to make the kingdoms of our earth the kingdoms of our God. The gold-purple arch acts like a dome creating am atmosphere under it.

We ask LOVE if this place can be found in His Word. We hear: “II Kings Chapter 2” where Elijah was taken up to heaven by a whirlwind, and where Elisha kept his eyes on Elijah. After the Chariot of Fire (Living Creatures) separated Elijah and Elisha, Elisha tore his old mantle (robe) in two, and then struck the waters with Elijah’s clock to divide the waters, so Elisha could crossover with a double-portion of God’s Spirit.

We hear the word: “Intersection.” We sense that we need to stand there awhile. The sideways Figure-8 is a pulsating infinity sign signifying A NEW BEGINNING AT THE PLACE OF INFINITY BEFORE THE THRONE IS ACCESSED THROUGH HIS INFINITE LOVE – HIS HEART – HIS BREASTPLATE (Please refer to GOD’S INVISIBLE GOVERNMENT – BREASTPLATE URIM V’TUMIM – http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-ly ).

This is the time of manifestation. It’s time for the pulsating infinite-8 written on His people’s hearts. We asked the LORD for clarification. Is this for now or for the future? We hear: “Always.” We also understand that it is a Kingdom Truth that has not been tapped into much.

We see ourselves as the One New Man in the Messiah (Christ), and we are “stripped,” (i.e. almost bare-boned). We see a circular chest-piece imbedded, like its part of our Body. It almost covers our whole chest. As we look as the over-arching pulsating structure, our circular chest-piece fills out. The longer we stand under the overarching frequency, the more that we take on the colors of the royal-golden arch.

The power source in the chest of the One New Man in the Messiah reminds us of the “Iron Man” movie. This power source in the chest can be many things, but today it is a SOURCE OF COUNSEL.  We know that our High Priest in the Order of Melchizedek is showing us a new dimension to the Melchizedek Breastplate. We sense that the purple speaks of the Fear of the Lord. We will get counsel through the fear of the Lord. This Melchizedek Breastplate is throne room alive, and very organic.

We desire to put our hands in this new chest-piece. As we all put our hands in, they go in all the way past our elbows. He is forearming us. Our arms are pulsating at the same frequency as the pulsating Melchizedek Breastplate. We see ourselves putting our feet in too up to our hips in a jack-knife position. We are tempted to jump completely in, but discern that the order of entry is important. Next, we put in our tongue. The head is next sanctifying our brains. What we do and where we go is determined by what we say and think.

We experience overall pleasure standing here in the Over-Arching Place of the Wind of Infinity. We her: “Love the LORD your God with all your heart, soul, and strength, and others as yourselves.” We hear: “See first the Kingdom and His righteousness has a lot to do with where we are standing. It imparts Kingdom Power.”

Elijah and Elisha was a two-by-two team that pulsated with the Lord’s heart. They were ONE. In Scripture, they were not moved by what other prophets said, but only what the Lord said. We are now STANDING IN THE PLACE OF THE COUNCIL OF THE LORD. Elisha stepped into this place immediately. We need to trust His frequency in our hearts. THE MANTLE PASSED TO THIS KINGDOM GENERATION IS HIS LIVING SUBSTANCE IN A CIRCULAR BREASTPLATE. We are His power-filled Iron Man.

We see pulsating LIGHT from the arch go into our chest piece. The pulsating arch delivers a frequency into our chest; and then, projects outward from our heart. This chest piece is RIGHTEOUSNESS – His righteousness. What is poured in and flows out is connected to righteousness.

When we pulled our arms out of the pulsating chest piece, there was a small hook in our left hand and a long sword in our right. We saw ourselves pressing our equipped arms against our thighs. We looked like a powerful warrior.

The royal-golden pulsating Wind of Infinity in our chest piece represents the UNLIMITED REALM. Walking in the unlimited place of Royal Order of Melchizedek is the Double-Portion Spirit Anointing of II Kings 2.

PROPHETIC ACT: The Corporate One North group feel led to do a prophetic act. We stand and jump at the same time into the pulsating disk as ONE. We realize that we are standing taller – more erect – equipped and armed as a wing of the Melchizedek Army. We touch each others shoulders, and hear: “A new creation formed.” We have huge ears to hear the counsel of the Lord. We hear the counsel of the Lord, and stand in it – radiate it.

Won’t you choose to join us?! To whosoever wills. It is a high cost and call to become part of His Order of Melchizedek, but the rewards are out-of-this world!!!

Resource: Corporate One North, 05-23-13, “Stepping Into the Counsel of God” Group Ascension

NOTE: Corporate One North (C1N) is made up of four people who focus on being ONE in the Messiah. Our primary core values are: [1] To seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness (Matt. 6:33). [2] To love God and people (Deut. 6:4-5; Mark 12:30-31).

BTW – This visionary third-heaven group encounter of the divine kind is one of the things that the Lord of Love has led us to do. When we feel led by His Spirit, we simply focus on Yeshua and ascend by His Spirit to go wherever He so wills. We report only what we see, hear, and perceive on these divine encounter.
