Raising Believers hope for the Rapture.

This is a reply to an email from Geoffrey Grider on the second chapter of the Song of Solomon
Here we go again, you are not setting a date as in day or hour ,but you are predicting 2018 Spring.I  know that you are well verse with scripture and history. I will draw your attention to the year 1844 spring When William Miller told his followers that the rapture will take place. Closer to our time was Harold Camping in 2012 May, then October. It seem that some people with the best intentions will not follow the clear instructions of Jesus in the scriptures. Matthew Mark and Luke recorded all that Jesus said would be the signs before his coming.

Did Jesus say anything about the rapture. Lets look at some of the scriptures.  Matt24v
40  Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.  41  Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42  Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Luke 17v
33  Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.  34  I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.  35  Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36  Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Two writers describing the same event ,but Luke use the word “night” which is figurative and not literal.Verse 36\ clearly show that  literal because women wont be grinding or men in the field at night. Both night and daytime activity is mention . If it was literal them only daytime or nighttime activity would be mention.

Here is what the Spirit is saying. Both can be literal because daytime in the west is nighttime in the east. So the wording of the verses apply to any part of the world. There is lots of problems with using that scripture to represent  or be a picture of the “rapture ” the seasons occur at different times around the world. Springtime in the West is not the same in the east. Winter in the west is not the same as in the far east. So you are way off in assuming a spring rapture.

Here are the instructions of Jesus as to what believers should be DOING. Rev3v
16  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.  17  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:  18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.  19  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. These are the instructions to the end time Church. But there is more. Mark 13v
32  But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.  33  Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
35  Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the c  ockcrowing, or in the morning:  36  Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.  37  And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

PLEASE, PLEASE, I am imploring in the Name of Jesus our Lord and savour, stop raising the hope of the people like William Miller. Verse 36 cannot be place in Song of Solomon.
