Countdown Day #28 – ARE YOU GOING? Rapture Ready

  • Would you make any changes in your life if you knew the Rapture of the Bride of Christ was going to happen this April 9th, 2023?

Can I actually “Foretell” that the Rapture will be April 9th, 2023? No, I cannot but I can tell you the season. You need to read my book Hope for Those Left Behind for the details.

On my Bible Guy Web Site – page Movies – starting with Abraham. We have been watching the Bible Movies in order each evening: Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses…

The Bride of Christ, who is she and who is she not. Part 6

     Much has been said about the Bride of Christ.  It is evident that she exists somewhere and is acting in some capacity.  The place nearest to the Bridegroom is the place which is held by the Bride.  The Bride is composed of the full overcomers, who are very close in their fellowship with Christ and with each other.  They are also in very near relationship to the Holy Ghost, who transmits to them the precious things of the Bridegroom.

Fear not! I am telling you this in advance so you will know that God is in control, has a plan and wants to get your attention.

What you are about to read was written over 100 years ago published in 1919 and The Bible Guy was given permission to republish. What a great honor to have this available today.

     The world has always listened to the message of love; but to the Bride of Christ that message is peculiarly sweet and precious.  Christ, the Bridegroom, speaks to no other as He speaks to His beloved bride.  His yearning is beautifully expressed in the Songs of Solomon 5:2, “I sleep, but My heart waketh; it is the voice of My beloved that knocketh, saying, Open unto me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.”

From 1919 Book The First and The Last by Ira Surface, republished by Thomas Spencer The Bible Guy. CHAPTER 9

Understand the identity of The Bride

1. The Marks of the Bride

     The Bride is a called-out body, from a called-out body.  Jesus said, “Many be called, but few chosen.”  That is, many will be in the “Ekklesia”, called out of the world; but a few, taken out of the “Ekklesia” in a special manner, are the chosen ones.  This chosen company will be composed of those who are prepared for the rapture.  The Bride will be among those who go up in the rapture.  It is not reasonable to say that all who are converted will be classed in the same rank.  It is clearly set forth that the Bride will be chosen by virtue of the cleanness and sanctity of her whole life and being. 

     There are three kinds of fullness.  We see the thirtyfold, the sixtyfold, and the hundredfold believers.  These three ranks of fullness all grew on the same good ground.  That which fell on other ground did not mature, and brought forth nothing.

2. The Bride Has Marks of Fullness

     The difference in the fullness must have been caused by the amount of labor bestowed upon the growing crop.  The three kinds of fullness speak of three degrees of merit.  This is conclusive evidence that there are three different orders, or ranks, in the “Ekklesia”.  You will find this is given on the chart, which shows three orders:  the Bride, the Overcomers who are not the Bride, and the Tribulation Saints.  So we have a people who are called out of the world, who constitute the believing “Ekklesia”; a body called out from the “Ekklesia”, who form the raptured body of overcomers; then we still have a chosen body called from among the overcomers.  These will be the Bride of Christ.

3. The Bride the Few Chosen

     This viewing of the Bride of Christ as a called-out body is in perfect harmony with God’s way and method of doing things.  He never calls out the large body.  His method has always been to choose a few from the many called.

     He called out Noah and his family into the ark, because He had found Noah righteous; it was merit that gave Noah his place in the ark.

    He called Abraham out because he possessed the necessary element of faith, and He made him a great nation.

     He called Israel out from all the nations of the earth, because they, as a nation, represented those who believed in the true God.

     He chose out of the first-born of Israel, saying, “They shall be Mine.”  Then He chose the tribe of Levi from among the twelve tribes of Israel, and said that they should be for an offering unto the Lord.  This act of God  is peculiarly significant, as is seen in Num. 8:13-16.  This shows how God chose a tribe from among the tribes, a special choice from a choice.
