The Rapture. A highly known event for most Christians, and yet is highly misunderstood. Most who are “spiritually awake” can’t wait for it to happen.
And why not?
For every believer and follower of Jesus Christ, who followed His teachings and is ready and waiting will be taken up with Him.
Taken up with Him?
Yes. Though several doctrines from different Churches has diverged from what the Rapture is, and even to the point of denying that it will ever happen. Putting in theological, symbolical and metaphysical explanations to justify their reasons why it’s not going to happen. The Rapture simply means that Jesus Christ is coming back for all of us – His followers – His Bride. And He made it clear that Christians should be ready and waiting for Him.
“Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
Mark 13:32-37 “
But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning— lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”
“Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
In short, Jesus is coming back for His followers, those who truly abide in His words and teachings. We Christians, will be going to our true home which is in Heaven. No death, no pain, no sufferings. no killings and no evil. Truly a perfect place filled with Love, Joy and Everlasting Peace.
Always remember that our existence in this world is only temporary, and we all belong to our Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven.
As Christians, we should look to the Bible as a reference for the teachings of Jesus. The way we live our lives should be according to the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and not by the opinions or standards set by man.
But just as our Lord Jesus said, ” that we should watch and therefore be ready, for He will return at a time most people do not expect.”
Just because an event has not yet happened yet, does not mean it won’t happen. It’s just a matter of time.
The Lord has fulfilled everything He said in the Bible. He is faithful and true. So watch and therefore be ready!!
“Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.”
Please stay Rapture Ready.
