Those that are taken in the rapture go immediately to the marriage supper of Lamb.
It is at this marriage supper of the Lamb that we will receive our rewards, for what we have done in our body since our salvation.
The person waiting tables at this great marriage supper of the Lamb will be none other than the Lord Jesus Christ himself!!!!

David consider the context, we are children of the day. Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it, and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it."
Luke 17:34 "I tell you, in that 'night' (metaphorically speaking is the time when work cease, a time for deeds of sin and shame, of moral stupidity and darkness, a time of slumber, of death) there shall be two [men] in one 'bed' (inclined [towards a deception]), one shall be 'taken' (#3880-metaph. accept or acknowledge one to be such as he professes to be [and] to join ones self with [him] as an associate), and the other shall be left (#863-to depart, to be sent forth [as a witness against that deception]. Cont 2).

Donna, the taken receive and associate themselves with the appearance and deception of the spurious christ. The left, shun his deception.
---Josef on 8/24/09


Josef-- huh? It's good you know how to use Strongs...but what are you saying? What does Luke 17:37 mean? It's not clear to me. And Matt 24:28 doesn't make it any clearer. Could you please just use just a few short sentances to make your point?

Rhonda: "TAKEN because they have PRAYED they are counted worthy to ESCAPE the time of trouble..."

The dead cannot pray.

When Jesus returns, the dead in Christ shall rise first, and the living shall be caught up with them (the dead). The dead cannot escape the tribulation because they are dead. They cannot feel the pain of the prosecuted christians because they are dead. So why do christians say they are being raptured to escape the tribulation that will soon be upon us when the dead are "raptured," too?

2). "Where are they 'taken'?" Jesus answers this question in luke 17:37
"Wheresoever the 'body' (Strong' #4983-corpse [as that which is already dead, referencing the son of perdition, as the only child of God that has already been sentenced to death]) is, thither will the 'eagles' (#105-Vultures, as those who would feed off death, in a wind like flight) 'be gathered together' (#4863-collected to be entertained [taking pleasure in the unrighteous deceivers deception]).
Mat. 24:28 makes the reference clear. "For wheresoever the 'carcase' (Strong' #4430-that which has fallen, metaph. a failure, to defeat, cause calamity, error and a lapse into sin) is, there will the eagles be gathered together."

The Anti, opposer, who comes in the stead of Christ, appears first. "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week:.... and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make [it] desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
And it shall come to pass, [that] in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off [and] die, but the third shall be 'left' therein.
And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It [is] my people: and they shall say, The LORD [is] my God." Dan9:27>Zec.13:8,9)

It depends which Bible verse you are talking about!
---Ruben on 8/20/09


Those that are taken, take part in the Marriage Supper and RETURN to earth after it's over and reign with the lord for his 1000 yr reign, also those that got beheaded for not worshipping the Beast and the 144,000 will be there too.
This is the 1st resurection, but the rest lived not again until it's all over!

You are invited to come, so come and take part and help fill the house of God for the Marriage of his Son.

Will you rdy yourself for your Groom?

"This is not talking about a rapture, but about being arrested in acts of persecution.
---Cluny on 8/20/09"

absolutely not. read matthew 24:37-42 completely. It is in regards to the "coming of the Son of Man"

Luke 17:30's context is "the day when the Son of man is revealed."

If it's being arrested, then how many times over how many days have there been arrests of Christians? Which one was day when the Son of Man is revealed?

Read Luke 17:26-30. Noah was "taken" from the world. Lot was "taken"

This also fits the parable of the foolish and wise virgins. In the parable of the virgins, the ones taken are the good ones, not the ones left behind.

The ones who are taken will go to be with Jesus. And Jesus is our Groom. So, this shows me there is intimacy with Jesus in HIs love . . . but not merely what humans consider intimacy to be. First, we will meet the Lord "in the air" (1 Thessalonians 4:17 with Matthew 24:29-31). Then God will resurrect this earth "into the glorious liberty of the children of God," as I offer Romans 8: 21 means. And Revelation 21 shows me God and Jesus and we shall be "here" on the Heaven-quality earth. God and Jesus will be on the new earth > Revelation 21:10 with 23-24 > the Lamb will be the light of the Heavenly Jerusalem, right on the resurrectional glory earth.
