Definition: (noun) The element believed in ancient and medieval civilizations to fill all space above the sphere of the moon and to compose the stars and planets.
Synonyms: heavens, medium, quintessence
Usage: I dreamt that I rose higher and higher, until I was flying through the ether towards the stars.
"For YHVH Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trump of Yah: and the dead in Messiah shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet YHVH in the air: and so shall we ever be with YHVH.
"Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
There is coming a day in which YahShua will descend from the heavens and call His followers up to meet Him. The dead will explode from their graves in resurrected bodies, awaking from their long sleep through the ages. We that are alive will follow the resurrected dead into the air, upwards through the ether, to meet YahShua high in the heavens above, and so shall we ever be with our Messiah.
It is a sad fact that the doctrine of the First Resurrection is either denied, neglected, or twisted by the "left behind" fanatics. Yom Teruah, the Hebrew Feast in Leviticus 23, perfectly pictures that great day in which our resurrection in "a twinkling of an eye" occurs. Most Christians have refused to honor these annual Hebrew Feast Days and thus are sadly ignorant of when YahShua will come for His Bride. By refusing Torah, they have refused oil for their lamps, and will be as those living in darkness, caught unawares.
Even the Jews no longer call it Yom Teruah, but wronly Rosh Hashannah, which means "head of the year" even thought the 7th month is 7 months deep into the year. Satan hates Yom Teruah, and has done all he can to mask that sacred feast day. Satan knows the resurrection of the Bride is the final and ultimate deliverance of Yisrael for once the saints are resurrected, they are forever beyond his temptations, attacks and reach. Yom Teruah spells final victory for the saints, a reaffirmation of that firstfruit resurrection which Satan so loathes and a reaffirmation of the defeat he suffered when YahShua rose.
Apostle Sha'ul said that it is good to comfort one another with the words above concerning our resurrection. I happen to believe that it is likely our resurrection will occur on the New Moon beginning the 7th month in the pagan year 2028. Even if I am wrong about the year, I do believe the resurrection will occur on Yom Teruah as that is the next feast in line awaiting fulfillment.
So, be encouraged Saints! If you love YahShua and walk in His commandments, that resurrection day is fast approaching! Whether we die or live, we will all be called upwards through the ether to meet our Master, our precious Rabbi, and so shall we ever be with Him.
Do you have oil for your lamps? Will you be ready to answer the call on that great and terrible day when He descends from the sky for His Bride? Are you obeying Torah or transgressing its precepts? There will be many professing lovers of Christ who will miss the resurrection, as they behold graves exploding, and humans transforming into celestial beings as they rise in glory into the heavens. Those Christians will have hardened their hearts and be filled with fear and rage at having missed the resurrection. Sadly, most of them will probably not repent, but refuse the Truth, pridefully and stubbornly continuing on in their rebellion until Messiah descends with His resurrected saints to end their folly.
It is time to obey Torah, folks. Resurrection Day is fast approaching and most of you are unprepared to meet your Maker. Only those baptized in the Ruach and walking in the Torah will partake in this glorious First Resurrection. On such the second death has no power. Come, partake of the Tree of Life, obey Torah, and be ready to meet your Messiah upwards through the ether, in the heavens, and so shall you ever be with Him. Amein.
