The ‘Rapture,’ ‘Harpazo’, ‘Catching Up’, ‘Twinkling-of-an-Eye’, ‘In a Moment’
“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 (or precede) 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.” (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17)
“For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9-11)
The message is as clear as it can possibly be. As clear as this message is, some have trouble understanding it, even today. Paul says that Lord will appear in the air, the dead in Christ will rise, those still living will rise right after, and we will then spend eternity with the Lord. Paul says the purpose of this revelation was to comfort believers facing hard times. What completes the theme is Paul’s exhortation at the end.
“Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4:18)
High (7) WATCH WEEK, FEAST OF TRUMPETS IS September 15-17, 2023; (7) A Coming Week That Shocked The World? US pushes for agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia that would change diplomacy in the Middle East for forever. “Many of the elements of a pathway to normalization are now on the table.” First the ‘Rapture / Harpazo’, then the ‘Confirmation’ by the Man-by-Satan (MbS).
Story by Macarena Vidal Liy,Antonio Pita ,Trinidad Deiros El Pais USA September 17, 2023
In October 2022, President Joe Biden verbally criticized the Saudi regime and threatened it with serious consequences. This was after Riyadh had cut oil production in the midst of escalating inflation and on the eve of the midterm elections in the United States.
But, on September 15, 2023 — three years after the Abraham Accords between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain were signed under U.S. mediation — Washington was frantically negotiating for what would be the mother of all agreements in the Middle East: a pact which would establish diplomatic relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel.
(7) This coming week, the talks will accelerate: Biden will meet in New York with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the U.N. General Assembly, as announced this past Friday by the White House. On the agenda are issues such as addressing “the vision for more integration” in the Middle East and how to confront Iran: an adversary of the United States and Saudi Arabia.
Negotiations have been underway for months. The rapprochement is so tangible that, this past week, an Israeli delegation traveled publicly to Saudi Arabia for the first time, even though the two countries do not have diplomatic relations. The official reason — the meeting in Riyadh of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, which concludes on September 25 — mattered less than the symbolism of the visit. That trip was in addition to the one made this past week by Brett McGurk — the National Security Council coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa — and Deputy Secretary of State Barbara Leaf. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Riyadh in June.
“Many of the elements of a pathway to normalization are now on the table,” said White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, on his way to the G-20 summit in New Delhi last weekend. However, he also pointed out that there’s still a long way to go: “We don’t have a framework. We don’t have the terms [of the agreement] ready to be signed. There is still work to do.”
For the Biden administration, a pact between two of America’s main allies in the Middle East would be a triumph. It has much to gain should there be a friendship between the most militarily powerful country in the Middle East (Israel) and the leading state in the Arab World (Saudi Arabia). The agreement would stabilize a region that has been the focus of Washington’s strategic interests for decades and, foreseeably, free up the U.S. government’s military resources and allow it to dedicate its attention to the two great open fronts in its foreign policy: its rivalry with China in the Asia Pacific and the war in Ukraine against Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
The pact would also be an important boost for the Biden administration, especially if it were to be implemented — something which, at the moment, is very unlikely — in the months prior to the presidential elections in November 2024. It would exceed the goal that Donald Trump’s administration scored with the Abraham Accords. And it would reaffirm Washington’s position in the Middle East, after Beijing managed to broker a diplomatic agreement between Riyadh and Tehran last spring.
“[A deal] would be a major geopolitical and geoeconomic win for the U.S. Its interests and policies have always been stymied by the long-standing reality that its main partners in the region have refused to talk or cooperate with each other,” noted Paul Salem, director of the Middle East Institute in Washington, in an article on the think tank’s website.
The agreement would also be positive for the Israeli and Saudi governments. For Netanyahu, the normalization of ties with Saudi Arabia would be an immense diplomatic triumph. In 2002, Riyadh proposed an important peace initiative — approved and later ratified by the Arab League — whose basis (any establishment of relations with Israel requiring the end of the military occupation of Palestine and the creation of a Palestinian state) is just the opposite of what the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan agreed to in the 2020 Abraham Accords.

Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Matthew 24:15: “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place(whoever reads, let him understand) then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”
Daniel 11:36 Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.
2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

One of the Israeli government’s objectives is to contain the influence in the region of its archenemy — Iran — which is a key backer of the Lebanese militia and political party Hezbollah. Saudi Arabia and Iran have just completed the reestablishment of diplomatic relations after seven years of rupture, with ambassadors being exchanged. However, they continue to view each other with distrust, while still competing for regional hegemony. There’s also “enormous” economic potential at stake. That’s according to Netanyahu, for whom the agreement would also be a personal triumph. His popularity is declining due to his controversial judicial reform, which sparked months-long demonstrations.
Saudi Arabia, for its part, considers that reducing tension with its neighbors is the precondition for the country to concentrate on ambitious internal reforms. This is key to the 2030 agenda: Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s roadmap to end the almost-total dependence of the country’s economy on oil revenues. Riyadh feels that “the best way to support its national economic development and internal security objectives is to ‘mitigate regional tensions through more dialogue and diplomacy’,” Anna Jacobs, a senior analyst at the International Crisis Group, who specializes in the Gulf region, said in an email to EL PAÍS from Doha.

The ‘First Horseman of the (7) Apocalypse that Rides a White Arabian Stallion
Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and POWER was ‘GIVEN’ him (Prince, Beast, Antichrist) over ALL kindreds, and tongues, and NATIONS.
The Antichrist; ‘A (7) King of Dark Sentences’ (political language, false (7) agreements, deceiving covenants, lies, back-room dealing, deception, (7) intrigue, announcements and deceiving doctrines and programs.) (777)
23 “(7) And in the latter time of their (7) kingdom, when the transgressors are come to (7) the full, a king of fierce countenance, (7) and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
24 And his power (7) shall be mighty, but not by his (7) own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, (7) and shall prosper, and practice, and shall (7) destroy the mighty and the holy people.
25 (7) And through his policy also he shall (7) cause craft to prosper in his hand; and (7) he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by (7) peace shall destroy many: he shall also (7) stand up against the Prince of princes; (7) but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:23-25)
Despite all the special interests at play, there are major obstacles to any kind of normalization, making it unlikely that such a pact will be closed in the short-term, or before the U.S. presidential elections in November 2024.
On the one hand, there are the demands that Saudi Arabia is making of Washington. Riyadh has asked Washington for a security guarantee, similar to what is enjoyed by NATO countries. That is, in the event of an attack on its soil, the United States would be obliged to intervene militarily in defense of Saudi Arabia.
Signing a NATO-style treaty would be almost impossible. U.S. legislation requires that treaties be ratified in the Senate with a two-thirds majority of the chamber: 67 votes. The Democrats only have 51 seats. It’s not unthinkable that Republican senators would join them, given that that party has traditionally maintained unconditional support for Israel, but it’s also likely that Democratic senators from the most progressive wing of the party would vote against such a proposal. They have been deeply critical (7) of Saudi Arabia’s deplorable human rights record and its central role in the war in Yemen.
One option is to adopt a formula similar to the one signed this past Wednesday by the United States and Bahrain — a “Comprehensive Security Integration and Prosperity Agreement” — by which Washington vows to defend the kingdom from possible attacks. According to a senior U.S. government official — who spoke on the condition of anonymity — the document “doesn’t rise to the level of a treaty” but is a “legally-binding” promise to neutralize conflicts in the Middle East. While announcing the pact, Secretary of State Antony Blinken pointed out that it can serve as a “framework for other countries that wish to join in strengthening regional stability, economic cooperation and technological innovation.”

MbS is also (7) calling for a civilian nuclear power industry, which it wants the United States to facilitate. At a talk at the Lowy Institute last week, Martin Indyk — a former U.S.-Middle East negotiator — opined that this (7) would increase the potential for “nuclear proliferation.”

The Palestinian people
The Israeli side also presents significant problems to any kind of pact being signed. The agreement being negotiated includes concessions to the Palestinian people. Netanyahu will hardly be able to pay the price, given his far-right coalition partners, who would not accept such a move. At the moment, though, he claims that the concessions to the Palestinians weigh “much less than is believed” in the dialogue. He has compared them to “a box on a form” that must be checked off to be in compliance.
However, this is also a point on which several Democratic lawmakers — who support the two-state solution and Palestinian rights — are unwilling to compromise on. “Without a Palestinian component, this peace agreement would not be sustainable,” Indyk notes.
Saudi Arabia — the custodian of the Holy Places of Islam (Mecca and Medina) — cannot give in on this point, either. A survey conducted by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies in January saw that 84% of citizens of Arab countries firmly oppose the recognition of Israel. A rejection due — fundamentally — to the Palestinian question.
It is unlikely, Indyk acknowledges, that the Israeli extreme-right will accept concessions. Netanyahu’s coalition partners were angered in recent days over a very minor issue: the transfer of 18 SUVs to the Palestinian Authority’s security forces, financed by the United States. A controversy that — in the opinion of Amos Harel, a commentator for the newspaper Haaretz — “underlines how little room to maneuver Netanyahu has and how difficult it will be for him to accept Saudi requests for concessions to the Palestinians.” Indyk emphasizes that Netanyahu will have to choose between supporting the radicals in his government, or being able to present himself to his fellow citizens as the great negotiator who managed to reach an agreement with the leaders of the Arab world.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has just extended oil production cuts for three more months. This time, the U.S. government has maintained discreetly silent about that decision.

The ‘Raptured / Harpazoed’ Church is in Heaven FIRST, which then witnesses Jesus Christ open the FIRST SEAL (of the seven seals) that STARTS the TRIBULATION. The First Seal is the ‘White Horseman on an Arabian Stallion’ that is REVEALED by his ‘CONFIRMATION’ of the False Covenant of Peace and Security for Seven Years.
Revelation 5 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
… ‘no man in heaven’ = Raptured Men, Bride of Christ, Church
… ‘nor on earth’ = Those ‘Left Behind on Earth’ During the Tribulation.
… ‘neither under the earth’ = Those in Hell.
… ‘twenty-four elders’ = A ‘select’ group of raptured/redeemed men who constitute part of God’s office of Government / Governance in Heaven.
4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
9 (7) And they sung a new song, saying, (7) Thou art worthy to take the book, and (7) to open the seals thereof: for thou (7) wast slain, and hast redeemed us to (7) God by thy blood out of every (7) kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; (777777),
Note; all the redeemed (past tense) men that make up the Raptured Church, from the ‘Age of Grace.’ These are NOT the ‘Tribulation Saints’ who are martyred, beheaded for their faith by the Beast / Antichrist, during the Tribulation on Earth.
12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
Jesus Christ is (7) the ‘ONE’ worthy to open the SEALS:
Revelation 6 And I (7) saw when the Lamb opened one of (7) the seals, and I heard, as it (7) were the noise of thunder, one of (7) the four beasts saying, Come and see. (7777)
Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and (7) behold a white horse: and he that (7) sat on him had a bow; and (7) a crown was given unto him: and (7) he went forth conquering, and to conquer. (7777)
But how can (7) they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save (7) them unless they believe in Him (Jesus Christ)? (7) And how can they believe in Him (7) (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about (7) Him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear (7) about Him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” Romans 10:14 (777777)

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
