"Come up here!"

Though the rapture verses do not state explicitly, I think implicitly we can surmise that when Jesus calls to His bride at the rapture He will say "Come up here!"

One of the rapture verses states, "For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first." (1 Thessalonians 4:16).

I believe the 'loud command' will be 'Come up here!" Why? Because...

In Revelation 4:1, Jesus said it when He called to John, "After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”

In Revelation 11:12, the Lord commands His two witnesses who had lain dead in the street of Jerusalem for three and a half days to "come up here!"

"Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here!” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies watched them."

How exciting it will be when Jesus calls with the voice of an archangel and a trumpet and many waters (in other words, LOUD!) "Come up here!"

Transcending gravity, hurtling through space in a glorified perfect body, we WILL come up there, and we will meet our Groom.

"It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night." (Like 9:38)

    2. You're welcome, and I agree, I think we will hear Him soon too. Is there a like button on here for your posts??? If so, I can't see it. :( Maybe it's just for blog users who are signed in? I do share your posts on my facebook though, trying to get the truth out there, hoping people read and get revelation, and come to Jesus, and accept salvation.
