Be Watchful
…35for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth. 36"But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man." Luke 21:35-36===
1 Thessalonians 5:9
For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Best you be rapture ready you don't want to be left behind!!! yes!!! we will believe GOD'S WORD or satan and man's lies!!! WE CHOOSE!

HAVE YOU BEEN LEFT BEHIND? By Grant Phillips~RaptureReady Empty what rapture?

Post  trevorofbude on Mon 15 Sep 2014, 5:00 pm

The letters to the Thessalonian churches (among many other New Testament Scriptures) link what you are calling the 'rapture' with the final judgement in the single sudden cataclysmic event of the return of Jesus taking the saints (dead and living) from this world and immediately destroying it and the final judgement happening.

Peter in 2 Peter 3 confirms this along with other sections of the New Testament. Can't understand why there is all his fuss about some millennium where Jesus nor any other New Testament writer mentions it and it seems to be based solely on the symbolic writings of John in Revelation. It is w basic principle of Exegesis that you interpret the Old in the light of the new, the obscure in the light of the clear and a single text in its context. I cannot see how anyone can read the Gospels, acts and Epistles and find any concept of a millennium and 2 part return of Jesus so Revelation should be interpreted in the light of the clear New Testament teaching not the other way around.

No wonder many are in Confused.com isn eschatological terms. It s simples really!

HAVE YOU BEEN LEFT BEHIND? By Grant Phillips~RaptureReady Empty Absolutely

Post  Jason_Seeker on Wed 15 Feb 2012, 3:57 am

I don't wish to contend ought that you said.
Neither about the number going in the rapture, nor the length of the tribulation period.
It's rather harrowing to think that the only other "raptures" were Enoch and Elijah, and these were single individuals.
We can (perhaps) though, take some comfort from the fact that: two shall be in the field, and one taken. Two shall be in a bed, and one shall be taken.
Well. That's four already...
Seriously though; we can do nought but attempt to be humble, sincere and believing.
Most probably five wise and five foolish virgins is probably simply an arbitrary number.
Like the C squared in E=MC(squared).
Well; actually, that's just an arbitrarily BIG number which just happened to be about correct to represent the amount of energy available in matter conversion.
Like light just happening to be (arbitrarily) almost exactly a million times quicker than sound...
But, whatever our success in "making" the rapture; I think all believers go through various stages:
1) First: Great ! Good News ! Look forward to that (rightly so, for "rapture" means "happiness...)
2) Despair: I don't have the faith. Doubtless I'll be passed over as I normally am...
3) Pride of Rejection: For some, they'll get to this too late. It's a pretty straightforward thing to confess. Pray God for guidance. And faith to believe...
4) Reality: We begin to be honest about what is needful for us to obtain.
5) Dilemma: It almost seems selfish or self-centred to consider us as being worthy, but not some other good people.
6) Rationalisation: Probably here is where it splits:
(a) Incorrect: Everybody/Almost Everybody is going ! Therefore can I, not much of a Christian obtain !
(b) Correct: I won't set my standard according as man dictates but I shall look to God Himself to tell me what I must needs do. Now... even if this is radically different/way fundamental than others; yet, if that's what required, then I shall do/believe it...
7) Given: (a) The massive progress I'm making in my walk/relationship with God; and (b) how very few people I agree with on my approach to believing, and (c) how lacking their walks are in their personal relationship with Him and no power, then...
No wonder I can afford to allow myself this faith. It's not me being "elitist." Doing/believing what God wants correctly sometimes requires us to have marginal beliefs. When Jesus preached His first sermon, the entire population were offended because He gave several cases where not everybody was healed that was sick (and sought to through Him off a cliff for it...).
On the other hand; He then went on to "heal all that were brought to Him..."
The best explanation for this is that it is PRESUMPTION which prohibits a large body from obtaining.
Probably, better still; PRIDE...
And, I will tell you just ONE pride which is a terror to Christians:
The pride of satan's jealousy/envy of us as believers.
As it's manifested through unbelievers. And possibly us to them.
Jealousy is one end of the spectrum: such as viewing with a jealous eye.
Envy, the other end; I could do better than that ! I ought to have that ! I am prepared to sin in order to have THAT VERY SAME ONE/THING...
God forgive people, and us these things (but never so much as a word spoken against the Holy Ghost; for that I pray not).
Neither (of course) do I pray for satan, nor the devils that are in people.
Just their being jealous/envious.
That we may have grace to overcome in our walks.
Stephen did many miracles.
Possibly too many.
For, even Jesus tended to perform His miracles one at a time...
And even when He multiplied the bread, they considered it not.
Likewise, when He walked on water, it were to His apostles only.
The coin in the fishes mouth, to Peter only; and so on...
The gift is subject to the possessor of the gift...
So, of course; we have to be humble with such things also.
If you tell a psychiatrist you talk to God, all and well...
But, if you tell Him God talks to you; you may very well be casting pearls before swine and he might lock you up.
The Bible though, is full of people whom God spoke to.
Sometimes through an angel, and sometimes through a quiet, still voice (spiritual).
More often though through revelation of His Spirit.
I wouldn't worry if you don't hear "actual" Words.
That is, actually; quiet an advanced place for any Christian to be at.
He speaks to me. But, it's not exactly clear words, all of the time (and of course; the devil "tries it on" from time to time).
I'd say THE MEANING is more potent than the actual Words, and His Spirit testifies with our Spirits, that it is God.
Like the good folks in The Bible, the more important/radical and/or outlandish a thing we think God is telling us to do; then the more we ought to seek confirmation and not do anything radically until that we have sought God.
I have found that except for things which were dangerous (such as not praying for the forgiveness of our enemies/forgiving them) God is plenty patient to explain things and let us look into them further.
Not as though I always "forgive" people back into my company...
Oh Lord. The devil is jealous of our wisdom and seeketh to make us foolish.
Please forgive us all this pride as you paid for our whole lives.
Including our not having to die.
For; were it not so; then who paid for them to not die who ARE DEFINITELY going in the rapture ?
That is an astounding revelation.
Probably, we don't need to age either.
THAT'S been paid for too.
Think of this:
It is given man to live three score and ten.
It is given for man to live ONCE and then the judgement (more of an assessment only, if we do well...).
But nowhere does it say any Christian MUST die.
Were it not so, then the rapture Scriptures would be lying.
Even St. John was told that if it were The Lord's pleasure, then he could live until The Lord's coming, which is after ALL OF IT...
Truly amazing.

HAVE YOU BEEN LEFT BEHIND?
By Grant Phillips
www.raptureready.com


In the blink of an eye millions of people have disappeared from earth. You’re still here. You have been left behind, but you have not been forgotten.

Nothing like this has ever happened on this scale in the history of man. The world is in a panic. You are scared out of your wits, but as bad as things are now for you, there is still hope. God still loves you, and offers you light in a dark world. His hand still reaches out to save you.

You have missed this part of what Jesus called the “first resurrection,” but He is coming back again. You were not ready this time, but you can be ready for His next return. Read on, and I will tell you where you are now, what to expect over the next seven years, and how to survive in an impossible situation.

WHERE YOU ARE NOW:

What just happened is an event Christians called the Rapture. Now let me explain why it happened.

About 2,550 years ago God promised the nation Israel that He would give them 490 years “to (1) finish their rebellion, (2) put an end to their sin, (3) atone for their guilt, (3) bring in everlasting righteousness, (4) confirm the prophetic vision, and (5) anoint the Most Holy Place (NLT).” “Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” (Daniel 9:24) After 483 years, Israel had accomplished nothing except to murder God’s Son Jesus. Therefore, God temporarily set Israel aside as a nation while He called people out from the Gentiles to be His Church (or the bride of Christ), keeping in mind that individually, Jews and Gentiles could be part of His Church. “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:14-16)

Remember, God still owed Israel seven years. Once the Church was complete, God was ready to deal with Israel again, the remaining seven years, and to bring judgment upon the earth, but before this could happen, the Church had to be removed. Jesus came in the air and called all who were in His Church, those who had died physically and those who were still living, to meet Him in the air. From there, He took His Church, His bride, back to Heaven. Those who were not part of His Church were left behind to go through the remaining seven years promised the nation Israel. This is where you are now.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Since the vanishing of so many people at once has caused such great problems upon earth, you will see very soon the entire world forming a one world government. There will be a one world leader over this new world government, who peacefully comes to power. He will seem to have all the answers to solve the world’s problems. He will prove himself by accomplishing something that no other leader has ever been able to do. He will confirm a covenant with Israel and her enemies, thus seemingly bringing peace in that area. The Bible calls him the antichrist. This starts the remaining seven years God promised the nation Israel. It is called the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble”, the Day of Lord, or the “Tribulation.”

At the mid-point of these seven years, the world leader (antichrist) will stop the sacrifices at Israel’s Temple (which by now has been built), magnify himself as deity, take his seat in the Temple, announce that he is God, and demand everyone to worship him. (He will probably have an image of himself setup for his subjects to worship.)

A small sampling of events during this time is as follows. Even more false christs will continue to appear. Wars will intensify, as will famine, death, those dying for their belief in God, and terror. One third of the earth will be burned up by hail and fire. One third of the seas, rivers and springs will be destroyed. All aquatic life will be killed. One third of the sun, moon and starts will not produce light. Fierce heat from the sun will bring agony upon mankind. People will break out in loathsome and malignant sores who take the mark of the beast (antichrist). The earth will become darkened. The Euphrates River will dry up.

The horrors of this seven year period will increase each year in its intensity until it culminates in Jesus Christ’s return at the end. By the end, judgment upon the world will be so intense all life would cease to exist if Christ would not return to put an end to it. Over 50% of the world population will be destroyed, and that doesn’t even take into account the number who will die in the last battle when Jesus returns.

Can there be any hope for anyone who has been left behind?

HOW TO SURVIVE AND IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION:

I do not mean to soften the agony of the Tribulation in the least. It is going to be the most terrible time the world has ever experienced. Even so, if you call upon God to save you by professing faith in His Son Jesus Christ, He will do so. That does not mean you will avoid the effects of God’s onslaught upon the earth. It does not mean that you will not suffer, or even lose your life. It does mean however, that whether you survive to the end or are martyred before, your soul will be saved, safe and secure with Jesus Christ.

I previously listed just a few things that will take place, so you may know before they occur that God’s Word is true. By reading His Word, the Bible, you will find what God says will happen during this time. You will see convincing proof that everything He says in the Bible will be fulfilled to the letter. For example, read Psalms 83, Exodus 38-39, the book of Daniel, and the last book, Revelation, to start with.

It will not be easy, but even in the midst of terror, peace can be had if Jesus is living in your heart. You can know that no matter what happens your soul is safe with Him.

It will end. Unlike the Church looking for the Rapture, you can count down the days until Jesus returns to the Mount of Olives, the Second Coming. Then you can rejoice, because we all will go with Jesus in what the Bible calls, the Millennium or the one thousand year reign on earth. Satan and his demons will be bound for Christ’s thousand year reign. When the one thousand year reign is ended, Christ will free Satan just long enough to permanently defeat him and put him and all his followers away for good. After that, we all reign forever with the one true God, Jesus Christ.
