The world is at the crossroads. Throughout the globe presently, people are in great trepidation as to what exactly would happen as the spiritual clock is ticking loudly. Both fear and excitement, hope and despair have gripped many people as end time events are building up to a climax.
The question many people are asking is that what would happen to the world, to the human family, to commerce and trade, to present civilization? Answers to this question are very numerous from many sources. Some people are expecting trouble of unprecedented dimension to visit the world (Great Tribulation Period). Some people are enthusiastic and hopefully expecting the best to happen. From media sources, there are hysterical news regularly about terrible catastrophic events that may end the world.
To some religious sects, they are not bothered at all. They are certain there will be health for all, food for all, ‘peace’ for all, freedom for all and prosperity for all. In their human understanding, they are expressing the belief that evil will vanish, sickness healed, poverty eradicated and paradise-on-earth actualized. To the born-again Christians, they are expecting the return of Jesus Christ in the sky. This glorious event is known as “Rapture.” Sadly, the unbelieving world is unprepared for this prophetic event.
How will you feel if you go to sleep on a particular night beside your family and loved ones, and wake up in the morning to discover that your wife or husband or children or friends have vanished into thin air, taking nothing with them?
How will feel if you hear through the media that all babies and small children in your city have disappeared suddenly? Imagine, the news rent the air that people driving cars had suddenly vanished, leaving their automobiles to swerve and somersault.
Imagine, air planes, suddenly become pilot-less in mid-air as they crash to the ground.
You would be awe-struck and confounded if you hear on popular news media, CNN or BBC News that these stupendous events had affected the entire world simultaneously.
Whether you believe it or not, a day is coming, a time unknown to the world, when the rapture event will really occur in the world, suddenly!
The “Rapture” will take place when the Lord Jesus Christ will appear in the sky to take true believers (born-again Christians) to their heavenly home known as Heavenly New Jerusalem.
To know more about Heavenly New Jerusalem, read Revelation 21; 22:1-5. The rapture is not for every one on Earth. Jesus Christ is only coming for genuinely born-again Christians (John 14:1-3). Rapture is the greatest event for which true believers in Jesus Christ are expecting presently. It can happen any moment. It is inevitable! Jesus Christ is warning us regularly through his prophetic seers worldwide to be perpetually ready for the glorious rapture. Therefore, as a rapture watcher, you must be perpetually ready for rapture.
True believers in Jesus Christ are people who have forsaken idols and Satan. In Jesus Christ alone they put their trust for their eternal salvation. They do not hold on to anything else to save them. They are alive in Christ- in righteousness and holiness. They have repented from their sins. They have totally accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. They are controlled by the Holy Spirit of God. They are light and salt of the Earth, signifying their unpretentious lifestyle. They are no more in darkness. As salt, they are not stained with the corruption of the world, rather they preserve the community around them. They deny themselves of the allurements of the world which tend to blindfold the eyes from the view of heavenly glory. They take up their cross and follow the Lord Jesus Christ who they love supremely. They were once dead in sin and trespasses, but have now been brought to life by the transforming power in the blood of Jesus Christ. They are alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:11). They no longer live the rest of their time in the flesh to the lust of men, but to the will of God (1 Peter 4:1-2). Christ’s selfless sacrifice on the cross offers us a cue to live no more to ourselves, but unto Jesus who died for us and rose again (2 Corinthians 5:15). Now, you know the identity of true born-again Christians who will make the glorious rapture at Christ’s coming in the sky. Are you a true believer in Jesus Christ or an ordinary cold/lukewarm Christian?
The next momentous event in the line of God’s programme for end time is the rapture. The Bible describes the rapture as the “taking away” or “catching up” of all true believers, dead or alive.
It was Jesus Christ who gave the revelation of the rapture to Apostle Paul (1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). Therefore, “Rapture” is not a fairy tale or imagination. It will happen one day, whether you believe it or not. Apostle Paul was very sure of the certainty of the rapture according to God’s own time-table. Nobody can determine the timing of the rapture. Only God can set his time-table for the world. However, we should be perpetually ready for the rapture. According to numerous prophecies, revelations, visions and warnings from Jesus Christ through his prophetic seers worldwide, rapture is at the door! All over the biblical scriptures, the time-table of God has always been fulfilled. As with past prophecies, rapture prophecy will also become fulfilled.
Jesus Christ after his glorious resurrection went to heaven bodily before the open gaze of his disciples (Acts 1:9-11). Therefore, at the rapture, the dead in Christ shall rise first and the saints that are alive shall be changed and go up to be with the Lord Jesus Christ. The saints of God shall be called up at the rapture by the sound of the trumpet of God. It shall blast suddenly without the least warning. Only those to be raptured will hear the sound of the heavenly trumpet blown by heavenly angels.
Unraptured people will not hear this heavenly trumpet sound. This is the more reason we must be perpetually ready for the glorious rapture.
Unbelievers and sinners are fond of scoffing at scriptural prophecies, especially prophetic rapture. However, rapture event shall come to pass as stated in the Bible. It is very certain because it is the divine word of God (1 Corinthians 15: 51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). The unbelieving world will be taken unawares one day. People are presently oblivious of the angels of God at the hallowed portals of heaven ready to blast the trumpet of God!
Sinners and unbelievers are going about their usual programmes with an “I-don’t-care” attitude about what to expect. They are behaving as if there is nothing very important at stake. Very sad! However, true believers should not be totally preoccupied with the activities of these last days. You must have daily anticipation of the rapture. This perpetual readiness will enable you to be focused on the rapture blessed hope. Rapture is a reality! Don’t give up your rapture expectation! As a dedicated rapture watcher, you must be perpetually ready for the glorious rapture.
Whether you believe it or not, rapture day is at the door! The rapture trumpet can sound anytime! It will be suddenly and unexpectedly! Only those who are perpetually ready for rapture will hear the rapture trumpet, become transformed gloriously and caught up into the sky for the glorious trip to heavenly New Jerusalem with Jesus Christ and the heavenly angels. You will be left behind by Jesus Christ on rapture day if you are a lukewarm/cold Christian, Satanist, Atheist, Agnostic, Freethinker, New Ager, Occultist, Muslim, Idolater, unrepentant sinner and unbeliever.
People must be ready always. People must be perpetually prepared for the glorious Rapture. Rapture is an unpopular topic in churches today, and so many Christians/unbelievers care less about it because it is not as enticing and motivating as prosperity, breakthrough, new things, favors, blessing and earthly success. However, Rapture is a daily expectation and thought of the wise Christians while prosperity and earthly blessings are the focus for the lukewarm/cold Christians.
Rapture is the catching away of the saints, which will happen within seconds and any moment one day (1 Corinthians 15: 51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17). It is the first event of the end time advent when the angels of God will blow the trumpets. Only born again Christians who are waiting for it, expecting it and preparing for it will make it. The simple clarification for self-examination here is that if you are thinking, waiting, preparing or expecting prosperity, miracle or anything more than Rapture, you will not make the Rapture. Only those who earnestly, eagerly wait and prepare for His (Jesus Christ) appearance more than anything else will eventually make it, just like the 5 wise virgins. Read Matthew 25. Rapture is a glorious event of all generations. It is going to be splendid, wonderful and rewarding for the saints more than any event in the history of the world. Then it will leave behind gloom, doom and destructive reign of the Antichrist (RFID chip: mark of the Beast/666) during the tribulation period for people who will miss the glorious Rapture.
You must assume that any day can be the anticipated rapture day. You must have daily anticipation about the rapture. That will enable you to be perpetually ready for rapture by God’s grace. If you continue in your lukewarmness or coldness, you may end up being left behind on rapture day by Jesus Christ. However, if you are left behind on rapture day, don’t accept the RFID chip. If you get chipped, you are hell bound!
Are you still an unbeliever or unrepentant sinner? You must accept the great salvation of Jesus Christ now! If you remain in your rebellion against Jesus Christ, you will be left behind on rapture day by Jesus Christ. How can you be saved? It is very simple. Take the steps below.
The following prayer, “The Sinner’s Prayer” (also known as the Prayer of Salvation) is by no means meant to be an “official prayer”, but rather a sample prayer to follow when asking Jesus Christ into your heart. You may certainly pray to God in your own words.
Regarding the location of the Sinner’s Prayer in the Bible? Well, there isn’t one mentioned; it is only implied. The basis of the Sinner’s Prayer comes from Romans 10:9-10. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
If you say the following prayer and mean it with all your heart; along with repenting of your sins (asking for forgiveness), we believe that you will be saved and be born again. You may be wondering, “What happens next?” First, you will need to get into a bible-based church and study God’s Word. Once you find a church home, you will want to become water-baptized. By accepting Christ you are baptized in the spirit, but it is through water-baptism that you show your obedience to the Lord. Water baptism is a symbol of your salvation from the dead. You were dead but now you live; for the Lord Jesus Christ has redeemed you for a price! The price was His death on the cross. May God Bless You!
Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.
I believe that your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.
Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.
Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.
Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
If you just said this prayer and you meant it with all your heart, we believe that there is a great possibility that you just got saved and are born again. You may ask, “Now that I am saved, what is next?” First of all, you need to get into a bible-based church, and study God’s Word. Once you have found a church home, you will want to become water-baptized. By accepting Christ you are baptized in the spirit, but it is through water-baptism that you show your obedience to the Lord. Water baptism is a symbol of your salvation from the dead. You were dead but now you live, for the Lord Jesus Christ has redeemed you for a price! The price was His death on the cross. May God Bless You!
