A Type Of Rapture
Written by Robert Reynolds on April 13, 2019
TYPE OF RAPTURE:
Genesis 22:19: So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.
Notice it never says Isaac came down off the mount. In context, Isaac is a type of Christ, and Abraham is a type of the Father.
1. And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things.
2 And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:
3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:
4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.
This is a type of the trinity. Abraham (the Father) sends out his servant (the Holy Ghost) to find a gentile bride (type of the church) for Isaac (the Son). This is the church age. Isaac still has not come back down of the mount.
Genesis 25:5 And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.
Genesis 25:11 And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahai-roi
This tells us that after Abraham died, Isaac inherited the promised land. This is a type of the second advent and millennial kingdom. Abraham was 175 years old when he died (Gen. 25:7), and he was 100 years old when Isaac was born (Gen. 21:5). Now look at this:
Genesis 25:20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan-aram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.
happened 35 years before Isaac inherits the promised land, yet is
revealed after. So how does all this relate to the rapture?
1 Corinthians 15:51-53
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a , in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
