On 05/06/21 the LORD showed me the following Rapture reference, hidden in plain sight in His Word. Just before what I was shown is a hidden Rapture passage, Yeshua feeds the great multitude, supernaturally, with five loaves and two fish! Feeding those who have gone out to listen to and meet Him, when there is no food for them in the natural or money to buy it. Remember that. Incidentally, I love how He says to His disciples: “From where may we buy loaves that these may eat?” (John 6:5) Because everything about His question is glorious, very gently humorous and all-knowing, at the same time:
“But He said this to test him (to test our hearts too in how much we trust Him) FOR HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS ABOUT TO DO.” (John 6:6)
So, that’s the supernatural setting of the following RAPTURE revelation: a preceeding supernatural action from YESHUA all by Yeshua Himself, not us! And, just like now, He tests us with the question of trust and understanding of His SUPERNATURAL POWER in the face of the seemingly impossible. And here, I believe, is one of many supernatural answers, hidden in Scripture for us to have revealed to us by His Holy Spirit in His timing. Note the order of events. No food for the multitude. Then Supernatural Provision. Then this, later on the same day!
“And when it became evening, His disciples went down on the sea. And entering into the boat, they were going across the sea to Capernaum. And darkness already occurred, and Yeshua had not come to them. And the sea was aroused by a great wind blowing.
Then having rowed about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they saw Yeshua walking on the sea.
And He having come near the boat, they were afraid. But He said to them, I AM! Do not fear.
Then they desired to take Him into the boat.
And instantly the boat came to be at the land to which they were going.”
(John 6: 16-21)
I also believe this is the Rapture because the LORD helped me to find a cross reference to this miracle being a supernatual sign of the reality of the Rapture. I say “sign” because in Hebrew, the word for “miracle” (נס) literally means “a sign from heaven”. So, ALL His miracles in the gospels are actually also Prophetic Signs of eternal spiritual models through which He operates.
“And there will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. And on the earth, anxiety of nations in perplexity of sound of sea, and of waves, and fainting men from fear and expectation of the things coming on the habitable earth; for the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and much glory. And when these things begin to happen, stand up and lift up your hearts, because your redemption draws near.” (Luke 21:25-28)
Here, He comes on a cloud, not walking on water. But, a cloud is just a less dense collection of water droplets, like the sea of Galilee thinned out! In fact, it takes even more faith in His Supernatural Power to believe He comes walking on a cloud than it does to believe He comes walking on water, because water is thicker! Both are Him being God over Creation.
And in both John 6 about the boat, and in Luke 21 which I’ve just read, Yeshua draws near in a time of fear:
“And He having come near the boat they were afraid.” (John 6:19)
“And fainting men from fear…. Your redemption draws near.” (Luke 21:25-28)
So, there is the Rapture, I believe, hidden in plain sight.
It is also a promise in this life. There are some ‘lands’ we cannot get to in our own strength, no matter how hard we row. I believe He will deliver me SUPERNATURALLY to the “land” – spiritually, practically and emotionally - to which He wants me. He sees us rowing hard. He comes to us, when we are just beginning to think “darkness has already come and He hasn’t come to us yet!” And He supernaturally completes the impossible journey against the storm blowing hard around us.
But only if we are in His boat, buoyed up on His Holy Spirit, rowing hard to follow Him and be where He is, expecting Him to come to us.
