The Mystery of God (Part 7 the rapture)


Revelation 10:7 speaks of the mystery of God being finished at the sounding of the last trumpet.  We have been studying scripture and we have seen how it teaches that our gospel is a mystery and our gospel is not fulfilled.  For review let’s look at what Revelation says.

But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.[1]

Scripture teaches that as the seventh and last trumpet is beginning to sound the mystery of God will be finished.  We have learned that concerning our gospel we will be ruptured at the last trumpet.

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.[2]

So we see that the mystery of God will be accomplished as the last trumpet sounds.  We see the rapture the hope of Christians taking place at the last trumpet.  We have, not a completely fulfilled gospel being fulfilled completely at the last trumpet.

We shall finally shed this corruptible man and become like Jesus.

And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.[3]

We shall finally have Jesus bringing us our salvation.

So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.[4]

All of this and more occurs at the last trumpet, the last trumpet in revelation.  This means our rapture takes place after all the seals and the other six trumpets.  Only the seven bowls of wrath come after our rapture.  This means that Christians are going to go through the great tribulation, but not the wrath of God.  There are a whole lot of people who are expecting to leave this here terrestrial ball before the tribulation even starts.  But if you believe in the mystery we have had passed down to us in the form of our gospel, you can no longer comfort yourselves in such escapism.
