On waking up today, I heard this Word, “Extraction!”
Now when The Holy Spirit speaks just one word to me, I know to look up the definition. Even though I know what it means in a general way, there is always a nugget in the regular and Bible dictionaries.
Extraction means, “The action of taking out something, especially using effort or force.” (Oxford dictionary)
I knew that this is the same meaning as the Greek Word used in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 “HARPAZO”.
Oh beloved sisters and brothers, for those who believe in the pre-trib rapture, this word is for you and me!
The Father is sending a comforting word so that we can comfort one another. I respect the other viewpoints also, but this is what I believe in my spirit and what I want to speak to you today for your edification and comfort. The Bride and the Spirit say, “COME.”
And just as I was going to post this I heard, “As the enemy has been gathering his people together, so I AM gathering MINE! Yes, I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! The Grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints!
(As I was proofreading, I heard to look up the military definition! Woohoo! Extraction (military) – In military tactics, extraction is the process of removing personnel when it is considered imperative that they be immediately relocated out of a hostile environment and taken to an area either occupied or controlled by friendly personnel.)
1 Thessalonians 4:17 CAUGHT UP: Greek Word HARPAZO: Strong’s Greek 726: To seize, catch up, to snatch. To take away, to seize by force; snatch up, suddenly and decisively – like someone seizing bounty (spoil, a prize); to take by an open display of force.
“But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP TOGETHER with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words,” 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.
“Behold, I tell you a mystery: we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed – in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed,” 1 Corinthians 15:51-52.
“And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen,” Revelation 22:17-21.
