CHAPTER 4

Events in Heaven After the Rapture

1. Father's House in Heaven

“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to
prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to
Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” (John14: 2, 3).

The above verse is an expression used by the bridegroom in a Jewish Wedding. He speaks thus to the bride and then leaves, to build an addition to his father's house before returning with his bride. He returns for his bride in the middle of the night, as a thief, at an hour she might not think, with a loud cry, saying "Behold! The Bridegroom Comes!" Entering the "bridal chamber/heavenly mansion" is the start of the bridal week, and is shown in Isaiah, showing the pre-tribulation rapture with the resurrection preceding it.

The Rapture is likened to a wedding here, in the Bible, and we know that a Jewish wedding lasts a week; we know also that the rapture will be a pre-tribulation event. The scriptures define a marriage as being a weeklong event. (Bridal week) = (Tribulation week) Regardless of when the feast is in these verses (not at the end), the time of intimacy (the bride being with the bridegroom sealed away in the bridal chamber) begins at the start of the bridal week, and this is what we look forward to in the pre-tribulation rapture.

The Church is the Bride of Christ

“And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.” (Rev 21:2).

“And one of the seven angels, who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues, came and spoke with me, saying, come here, I shall show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” (Rev 21:9).

“And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.” (Rev. 21:10).

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself up for it.” (Eph.5: 25).
