I have for the past 3 4 days have been reading 12 through 14 chapters of Ezekiel, I am poised over this particular verse along with 21 23 verse. I have prayed and asked the Lord for understanding to reveal its meaning. I saw a picture of an actual garment with armpits sewn closed with a padded pillow to fit the opening by the false prophetess which results in a block to spiritual natural progress. It will seem unnatural in how it will happen. Agreement with a false and diabolical person acting as a medium is not Gods will for the child of God. It can only be a deception. Just a heart felt sincere opinion.

I totally agree, no Rapture.. False, Deceive'n.. Our own churches today, Will not teach what is written.Of the true live'n "WORD" of OUR GREAT TEACHER."JESUS CHRIST". There is Hide treasure, in OUR BIBLE. And nobody wants to teach the FACTS..

To "make them fly" in this sense, means to lie to the unrepentant sinners to them believe all is well. A real prophet would warn them that God's wrath is to come, but these false prophetesses are using God's name for payment.

While it's true that the word "rapture" is never mentioned in the bible, this is what happens:

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

16 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:

17 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.

I agree that this verse and the New Testament does not support the rapture theory

 

Billy Howard's comment on 2012-04-24 09:52:02:

I agree, God clearly said he is against the people who teach his children to fly to save their souls...Rapture is NEVER mentioned in the Bible anywhere....In order to clearly read/understand what this says, you need to research in Dr Strongs Con..and also see what each words means in Hebru.

 

Glenn's comment on 2011-09-02 20:54:46:

What? The verse is talking about false Prophetesses who are trying to control souls.Look in the bible were Saul had a Prophetesses bring Samuel back from the grave.. He was not happy.They are powerful spirits. God is not happy with there antcs either

Pillows on arms: Paratroopers with parachutes.

 

Gary's comment on 2011-01-07 08:18:26:

I agree with Jessie the manuscripts clearly say ( you have sewn vails over my saving hands and teach MY childeren to fly to save there souls. The rapture wasnt even taught untill about the 1830s it is satans lieing message so people wont study the bible. People better get there strongs concordnance and really study there are a lot of false prophets today many more than most know.
