Today, reply is on whether the Rapture has already occurred without those left behind being made aware of judgment against themselves. As a sacred process, the focus or object of hope may be fixed and unchanging, yet, hope is to be ongoing, pending, and recurring. Properly understood, our sacred hope also is timeless, eternal, and everlasting. Hope for the believer derives from the grace and personhood of divinity, rather than deliverance by the law, and from the law. One of the fighters in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion and Spirituality who uses the ID “Anonymous” (no profile data appears) posted the following:

 

What if Rapture has already happened but no one was saved and therefor no one got Raptured?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 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 in Christ 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1st Thessalonians 4: 13-18, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Divine Preparations for Advent (03/17/2019); His Words About Returning (12/02/2018); Preparing For The Rapture (11/09/2018); A Short Time Left (10/30/2018); Believers Must Become “Ripe” (09/02/2018); “The End Is Near” (03/14/2018); Waiting For His Appearing (02/09/2016)

 

Anonymous”, developing Christian believers are all cautioned to acknowledge that the present process of divinity for redemption and salvation is one of proclamation and revelation. Things otherwise invisible and unseen are displayed and made actual for created beings and living creatures to establish unshakable consciousness of divine things that have been, that are, and that are yet to come. Divine law is not the hope of the Christian; yet, law is a life process, not merely a set of rules, whereby the accomplishment of judgment appears. Spiritual confusion is eliminated through sacred devices that include the operations of inseparable spirit substance from the makeup of GOD such as faith, holiness, impartiality, oneness without sameness, and prophetic demonstration. Saying this another way, multiple sacred events to make divinity known, knowable, accessible and approachable will occur that are “public” and “open”. While there will be various operations that involve only those members of the church founded by Jesus Christ who are adjudged as just and righteous, these will not be private or secret events. Through what they witness, those ruled as being unjust, unrighteous and wicked are to realize their condition of condemnation before the Most High, and their further entrance into the tribunals of final judgment.

Keeping in mind that salvation is through grace and the merits of Jesus Christ, who, when, how and why there is a harvesting of the earth is not a social event, or a matter of selection on the basis of human accomplishment. Christ will be published within the consciousness and substance of all Creation through righteous judgment, and the resolution of all conflict. Among Christian believers teachings that have themes of the new creation, “the rapture,” or the descent of the New Jerusalem are to generate appetite (ire., longing for the appearing of the Lord), expectation (we also say, hope), and zeal through assurance. Consider against the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Deuteronomy 29: 29, King James Version (KJV): 29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

2. Revelation 1: 5-8, KJV: 5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

3. Matthew 24: 23-28, KJV: 23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. Romans 8: 24-25, KJV: 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
