To me this is one of the more important verses within the scriptures that is severely overlooked by almost all of today 's Christians. I have put numerous hours of study into these verses Luke 12:36-40 and have thus far drawn the conclusion that Jesus was possibly clearly detailing to believers that there will be more than one snatching away Rapture . My conclusion is that Jesus will snatch away believers for the Wedding in heaven, but then will also return on two more occasions not to gather up for the Wedding, but to snatch up "new " believers - for the Wedding Supper. I am still studying to discern such time frames as to when these other two gatherings of "new " believers could take place, but feel they may fall in accordance to the seventh seal and then the seventh trumpet. These two invitations to the Wedding Supper would would fall in alignment to the belief that the Wedding Supper takes place for 7 years in heaven during the tribulation period on earth keeping in mind that a thousand days on earth is equal to one day in heaven . The good news to this is that not only will the true believers of today be part of the Wedding with Christ but will also be pre-tribulation gathered up Raptured !!! I will update as I further discern this aspect of the scriptures.

In studying Scripture, it is essential, I think, to know of the background by which characters wpeak and act. I am very interested in learning more about such a background. The religious empirical thinking machine commonly called THE CHURCH is an empty, vain, blinding system of damnation concealing the truth and reinforcing error. If it takes the balance of the rest of my life, I should wish to unlearn what these false teachers imparted to me. In that sense I can only say, that Yahuweh (The original Character removed by such a wicked and erroneous system as I have described) is able to give me and others like me shomar the Hebrew word corresponding to our English WATCH and chachamah another Hebrew word corresponding to wisdom and tahor another Hebrew word meaning cleansing from such an erroneous and wicked church teaching as I have sat under, Craig
