Food for thought: the first resurrection mirrors the Jewish harvest. It goes in this order. Firstfruits, Pesach, shavout, Succoth, and ends with the gleanings.
The Jewish harvest:
Three main harvests of DEAD saints. Matt 27:52-53 (OT saints) 1 thess 4:13-17 (the dead in Christ shall rise first) the barley. Ruth met Boaz in the barley harvest.
The barley harvest and the rapture: The dead New Testament AND LIVING SAINTS at that time. 1 thess 4:13-17, 1 Cor 15:52-53 Rev 5:9 Rev 7:9-10,
Another harvest into the barn comes mid tribulation.
Mid tribulation MARTYRS, dead people, no living ones, rev 7:9-10
Then the olives, and the firstfruits of the wheat, then the last reaping, again DEAD MARTYRS, (else you’d have no mortals to repopulate the earth,)
And finally the gleanings, rev 20:4-6, those dead that were killed in the interim from the last reaping to the return of the Lord of the harvest.
The rapture of the bride is a one time event. It occurs simultaneously with the barley harvest before the tribulation starts. No living believers go up in the harvests after the rapture or during the tribulation, only martyrs at their harvest times.
At the rapture, WE will return to the fathers house for the marriage of the Lamb. We also return with him. Zech 14:5, 1 thess 3:13
The taking of the bride has no set date.
The marriage lasts 7 days, 7 years in our case to give guests time to
arrive and participate.
Jesus returns with his bride and all the resurrected saints killed in the tribulation EXCEPT those killed after the last harvest and his return. They are raised and glorified in rev 20:4-6.
Surviving believers will be gathered “from the four winds” at this time, surviving UNbelievers will be killed.
The trib saints alive at Jesus return enter the kingdom reign as kingdom saints and citizens, in mortal bodies, WE will rule and reign with Christ in immortal bodies.
Again, the harvest has three main phases. It starts with first fruits, the exact day Jesus arose from the dead, and it ends with the gleanings in rev 20:4-6.
Pesach: OT saints.(first fruits of the barley) Shavout (to remove) NT saints, (main barley harvest)
Succoth: several fruits (olives, figs, pomegranites, grapes and wheat)
And lastly, the gleanings ends this last phase of the harvest of dead saints. This is the first resurrection:
IS 26:19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. (Firstfruits of the barley) dead OT saints.
Fulfilled in Matt 27:52-53: And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
Next: US, and the believing dead after the cross:
1 thess 4:13 “the dead in Christ shall rise first” (barley harvest, dead NT saints)
1 Cor 15:52 “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye” the PRETRUBALTION removal of all the world’s LIVING believers, the Rapture simultaneously with the barley harvest see rev 5:9-10(Ruth met Boaz gkeaning in the barley field)
Rev 7:9-10 dead mid trib saints , (no living believers) the beginning of the fruit harvest join the assembly at the marriage in heaven
Rev 11 (the two prophets, the olives)
Rev 14 “and the earth was reaped” (DEAD trib saints, no living ones. This is end trib, the wheat)
(The grapes are the LIVING unbelievers gathered at armegeddon and those killed when Jesus returns with all his saints) Jesus treads the winepress alone.
Rev 20:4-6 , end trib DEAD, no living ones are raised at Jesus return. These died in the interim from the last harvest to Jesus return. They are the gleanings. This is the first resurrection.
The LIVING believers that survived the trib are NOT RAPTURED, they are gathered to Jerusalem and given the kingdom as citizen saints. In MORTAL bodies.
