The Dead In Christ
Christian’s scriptures are called The Holy whole Bible book that supposed to reveal man’s plight on earth. In Paul’s “Rapture” dialogs (I The. 4:16-17) he talks about “the dead in Christ” so who are they? are there things in the scripture pointing to them? when did they die? they are to rise before what? Those questions come to mind because Isaiah 28:18 says, your covenant with death shall be disannulled (JKV) and Revelation 20:14 say, Death and Hell shall be cast into the lake of fire and make those valid questions and their answers necessary if we are to comprehend the book’s revelation. But before answering those questions we must determine what death is.
What Is Death
The first mention of death is at announcing the tree of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil as being the tree of death that only a touch of produces although nothing has ever been found growing from the ground to say it is a fruit or tree so we must first determine what is death.
According to that garden metaphor man was naked and without shame but as soon as Adam ate the SAID fruit he and Eve became ashamed yet Adam lived in excess of 900 more years. Peter said one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day that can interpret Adam’s life ending the day he ate from it as a thousand years. Yet we must remember man of both genders were made on the sixth day for replenishing the earth after everything else was provided and only the earth was there when Adam was formed so why did their children live less than a day? How can a fruit eaten by a couple curse their seed for a multitude of generations that included the daughters of men or everyone during the flood who intermarried with their descendants died except Noah and family – as sons of god they are one symbol of – didn’t revealing it was also sexually transmitted? Why wasn’t it eliminated earlier since written is the sins of the fathers are visited upon the children to the third and fourth generation? Then death has to be something else since the Christ said let the dead bury their dead when one corpse can’t bury another corpse.
We do find some word definitions in the Adam and Eve metaphor explaining it. We have a man being renamed woman because another was taken out of man and man's meaning mind able to comprehend all things makes woman mean mind unable to understand all things. That would be death’s meaning defining die as becoming ignorant. We also have an unashamed naked woman who became ashamed of nakedness after eating the fruit implying naked means ignorant or not knowing instead of nude. Thus we have human are the dead – with hu meaning cut out of man – and woman being the inability to comprehend all things.
That explains Christ's words about the dead burying the dead but not who the dead Christ are. The Christ said you must be born again suggesting human has to be reborn into man or sons of god which, I suppose, makes woman Christ who somehow shed their bodies as another form of death to remain without it rather than resurrecting it like the Christ did. That would explain the dead in Christ so where do we find references to many dead Christ?
Who Are They
In search of that answer let’s begin with the parable of the Ten Virgins where half enters with the Bridegroom, or Christ, revealing the meaning of virgin is virtuous and a small number of man if the ten amounts to 10% of world population during the last days as I see is when it happens. I believe these are the last days with somewhere between seven and eight billion human that ten percent of equals seven to eight hundred million. Half going in with the Bridegroom reduces the number to 5% who survives the world’s termination, thus we now recognize the non-surviving half are the dead in Christ.
Another scripture pointing to them being who the Gospel bringing messiah in talking about is during the world’s termination is where he said, he that endure until the end, the same shall be saved. That means every place we see endure or endures in scripture is prophetic of those surviving the end of the world since Israel means to endure. In turn, the dead in Christ are people who are no longer in their bodies revealing reincarnation is biblical.
When Do/Did They Discarnate
To find that answer we must determine who is the prophet like unto Moses (Deut. 18:15 & 18) Israel was told will rise up from among them (?) as the latter sign who follows him and the first sign (Exo. 4:6-8) that demands knowing when will Judah of prophecy be in place. So allow me to begin with the last, where are two Judah of prophecies revealing it which are Genesis 49:1 and 8-12 and Micah 5:2, and work back to the prophet like Moses.
Genesis’ first verse has Jacob telling his sons what will happen in the last days then at 8 he goes on to say Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren [Europeans] shall praise [is Judah’s definition]: thy hands shall be in the neck [economic sanctions preventing the consuming] of thine enemies; thy father’s children [all other ethnics] shall bow down before thee. Judah is a lion’s whelp [young nation, offspring of Great Britain]: from the prey [when becoming a nation], my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he crouched as a lion, and as an old lion [acts as an old seasoned lion]; who shall rouse him up [ who will oppose Atomic bombs]? The sceptre [law giving right] shall not depart from Judah, nor the lawgiver [walking on his own Constitution and laws providing for other nations] from between his feet, until Shiloh [the second messiah] come; unto him shall the gathering of the people be [Spiritual Israel]. Binding his fold unto the vine [traveling by his own power Isaiah 63:1-7], and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he wash his garments in wine and his clothes in the blood of grapes: his eyes shall be red with wine [bloodshot], and his teeth white with milk [no vain pearly white teeth].
With the interpretation of Micah 5:2 written within the verse it reads; But thou, Bethlehem [house of bread] Ephratah [plentiful], though thou be the least among the thousands of[praised nations] Judah, yet out of thee shall come forth unto me [the messiah] that is to be ruler in [by living like everyone else as Moses did] Israel, [those who will survive] whose going forth [way of living] has been from old [ecologically or as it was in the beginning of civilization], from everlasting.
The foregoing clearly reveals the United States of America is the nation the second messiah will be born in because:
- 1) Is, as far as I know, the first modern nation to use economic sanctions against its enemies;
- 2) From its foundation she acted old and deceiving by treading on this land’s Natives' treaties they never intended to keep;
- 3) Is the only nation with Atomic weapons;
- 4) Has never implemented the Constitution nor followed it while attempting to dictate how other nations are to govern themselves and:
- 5) Is the nation Micah say boasts of being the [house] Land of Plenty everything;
- 6) So when the Messiah’s sudden appearance in the White House (Malachi 3:1) and not be worshipped but an equal servant of people we will know the last days are here with the U.S. the last praised nation. Thus, Judah of Prophecy is in place but who is the prophet like unto Moses and latter sign since we know Yashua or Jesus the Christ is the first sign?
Throughout the New Testament in the name of Jesus and in Jesus’ name is written but not in the name Jesus. To say of means it belonging to but without of it would be the name so Jesus can’t be the name. The Christ’s words in Matthew’s writing are both I the son of man (16:13-16) and the son of man (12:39-40 & 17:11-12). What’s said in the sixteenth chapter ensures us he was talking about only himself while the other two can be deceptive revealing him and someone else. Here is why.
Matthew 27:45-28:1 shows Jesus died and was in the earth before sunset Friday and out before dawn Sunday whereas Matthew 12:40 reads for as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. From pre-sunset Friday until pre-dawn Sunday is only two nights and one day but in Matthew 17:11-12 he didn’t want people to know for certain Elijah is to be the second messiah because Revelation 19:12C reads he had a name written that no man knew but he himselfmaking it intending to deceive. Thus Jesus is a pseudonym for the first and latter signs making the voice’s this is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased, hear ye him to be about Moses, Elijah and Yoshua who were on the mountain as a New Testament representation of Ex. 4:6-8’s prophecy.
Then there is Daniel’s (2:41-45) stone [teacher, second stone Moses smote in the wilderness, Elijah] to fall on the last ruling nation supporting both prophesies and others throughout the Bible. Therefore, these are the last days. However, because Isaiah (2:2-4) predicted converting war equipment into farming equipment and Revelation (7:1-10) shows the sealing of the ten virgins it WILL NOT happen prior to Judah’s destruction and means the messiah ceases governing before Judah is destroyed. That open the way for Revelation’s (17:16) ten horns to lay her to waste following 16:14’s Battle of That Great Day of God Almighty where the five foolish virgins” are killed. Rev. 6:9-11 also shows the dead in Christ are already discarnated while 14:13 shows they discarnated during the last destruction of this civilization. Thus, they discarnates during the days of World War 1 when each of the three groups (16:13) kill each other and the five foolish virgins leaving those in Armageddon alive.
Our Answer is The Dead in Christ DISCARNATES during The Great And Dreadful Day Of The Lord, The Great Tribulation and The Battle Of That Great Day Of God Almighty which are all the same event.
They Rise Before What
Paul’s words: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead shall rise first; Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Therefore the discarnated in Christ are to rise before the rapture to assist replenishing earth. Matthew’s (20:1-16) Paymaster Parable indicates it is not until after the world’s end Israel shall all be caught up but not all at once, it will be one at a time. Paul’s revelation must have come from the all at once rapture disguised in Genesis 1:7 as waters above the firmament (Rev. 17:15) since the wording of it gives us that impression.
The dead in Christ are the five foolish virgin who don’t enter Armageddon with Elijah, the prophet like unto Moses when he relinquishes governing the world with his ROD OF IRON. They are discarnated for a complete cycle of earth and dies after the last prophet Elijah the Bridegroom and wise virgins have entered Armageddon. They go to what Catholics call Purgatory and remain until the next time this civilization's end's first millennium before being reincarnated and raptured one at a time by Yashua the pay master leaving Elijah to become the Alpha and Omega after replenishing earth through the seventh millennium - the reverse of Genesis' week - preceding the following evening civilization.
