PREVAILING VOICE DAILY
13th April, 2021.
Topic: THE REALITY OF RAPTURE.
Text: 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.
Mosttimes I assume I don’t know the message I preach and that helps me to depend on the Holy Spirit to teach me afresh, and this is the reason the message is strong in the mind of those who listen.
I assume I don’t know the subject I am teaching here, I need to start from the meaning before going into details.
DICTIONARY MEANING OF RAPTURE.
The future event when
Christian believers are suddenly removed from the Earth before the second coming of Christ.
The Bible is our guide, our compass in this our journey to heaven. You must believe the totality of the Bible if you must get the best of your life both here on Earth and in the world to come.
Let’s look at Jesus’ teaching about Rapture. Matthew 24:40 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.
In the above text Jesus was explicit enough; some people will be taken suddenly and others will be left.
Rapture is going to happen suddenly, some people think there will be signs, or shakings like a serious thunder, some hours to the rapture. Some think Angels will be around some days before the event. NO SIR/MA.
Read what Jesus said in Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37: But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38: For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39: And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
It is going like a normal day, no special events before the Rapture, Rapture itself is the special event. There will be parties, celebration, people will be relaxed like Jesus is not ready to come. It will look like not now, maybe another 20, 50 years to come.
Some people think God will wait for them to see their children get married and having children, some say, ‘ let me be 90 or 100 before the Rapture.
God wouldn’t wait for anyone, the Rapture can occur any moment from now. When he is ready he is ready.
The things we have achieved will be useless then, it is only the salvation of your soul that will qualify you. If you miss THE RAPTURE YOU WILL CRY. Stay Rapturable.
* Lord, help me to be qualified.
