Revelations and Rapture

There is a plethora of memes going out today claiming today is the “Day of Rapture” based on years of trying to decipher clues in the Bible, most notably in Revelations. Unfortunately, due to misunderstanding of the messages in the Bible (remember all spiritual knowledge is downloaded to mankind and then is filtered through the human brain, so it is often flawed), there is an overwhelming fear that holy people/believers are just going to be sucked up to heaven and/or disappear. That is not how it works.

What is The Rapture?

Evangelicals like to claim that the Rapture is an event that will take place sometime in the near future. Jesus will come in the air, catch up the Church from the earth, and then return to Heaven with the Church.

In 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, wSe are given a clear description of the rapture:

" The dead in Christ will rise, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord.”

This is a metaphorical explanation as so much of the Bible is. Yes, the Rapture is real and things are going to get uglier before they get better. But in fact, the “Rapture” has been going on for quite a while now, but it is not what you think.

First of all, let’s look at the meaning of the word, “revelation”. As you are aware much of the “end times” are discussed in Revelations. The word revelation means nothing more than what many in the spiritual community call “downloads,” and boy, can those downloads be misinterpreted through human intellect and will. Not that they are meant to be misinterpreted, but the human mind cannot always comprehend the messages it receives. And the Divine operates at such a high vibrational level...

Revelation is defined as the supernatural communication of truth to the mind. It refers to God’s act of communicating unknown truths and facts about Himself that He wants man to know2. It is a download. Revelation can be general or specific, depending on the scope and content of the information. Revelation is also a term used to describe what is revealed, disclosed, or made known by God.

As for the rapture, many people are here in flesh and blood have already been raptured. They are the ones who are now recognizing their own spirituality and understanding the imminence of a new world coming. Some in the awakened community call it “moving into 5D). They are the ones who are standing up to the Truth of what is going on and are not accepting the status quo any longer. They are living in their compassion and love and understanding what the Divine wants life to be. Their souls have been raptured, their bodies are still viable and they are here to guide the rest of us into what life is supposed to be, not what it has become. On the other hand, some people who have not been “raptured” are returning “home” (dying) so that they can go through a sort of rehab and can come back to this existence and incarnate as healthy spiritually aware people. I am not saying that all people who have passed are going through this. Many souls on the other side are diligently working to guide us in spirit here to the new world (a 5D existence). So, don’t be afraid of the “rapture” and don’t base your faith in the Divine on fear. I am not saying the Divine cannot be fearsome, but that is only when you fail to show and exhibit Love to each other. That is not what God is about. Work on your spirituality. Work on letting go of ego, surrendering will and having faith. There is nothing to fear from the Divine.

He is love. And he is there to guide us to love.

    Your article you've shared provides a thought-provoking perspective on the concept of the Rapture and its interpretation. The idea that the Rapture is not a singular event but rather a continuous process involving spiritual awakening and growth.
