Ever wondered what it would be like when Our Lord Jesus Christ comes to the earth to take His people home? I don’t wonder. I know. All eyes shall see Him descending from the clouds and His children will be transformed and go up to meet Jesus in the clouds… It’s not by might, nor by power. You can’t force yourself to disappear and be transformed. It will only happened to those who have given their lives to Christ by accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and living the kind of life He lived when He was on earth, forsaking all wickedness of the human nature and living solely for Christ. Renewing your mind day by day with the Word of Life and seeking first the kingdom of God according to Matthew 6:33-34,
“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”(NIV)
When you do these continuously with prayers, your life will change alongside peace of mind from the Throne of Grace. Stop pursuing the things of this world, your heavenly Father knows you need them and he will supply them to you according to His riches in glory, only you have to ask and you shall receive, that your joy will be complete. Continue...
The manner in which you live your life has to depend solely on the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He is your closest friend and a personality except you can’t see Him in this our physical flesh. He doesn’t force you but when you recognize His existence and invite Him to help you; He will direct you in everything. Again, the bible tells us that the Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are the Sons of God. This happens only to a born again Christian. When you have this, you can be assured in your spirit that you will make the rapture.
Let me create an imagination for you which may one day happen. The coming of Jesus may go thus:
“Our Lord Jesus Christ descends from heaven into the clouds with thousands of angels. A loud trumpet is blown and people begin to disappear from this earth (including me) and there is panic all over this world. Noise everywhere. People are running helter skelter searching for their family members that are gone. Babies disappear from their mothers arms, people disappear from their cars and accidents occur on the road at various places, pilots disappear and the air plane has to crash done as there is no one to guide it. People cooking in their homes will be gone leaving the house on fire, trains will pull off the rails and fall, ships will sink, machines that are operated to cut material will be left turned on and destroy things…the list goes on and you can think of any possible worst scenario. But the truth remains that it will be terrible on that day, because the Enemy officially takes his seat to punish the people left behind for three and a half years.”
Would you like to be raptured or would you like to stay behind and pay with your own blood for heaven? You may not make it to the end. All you have to do is surrender to Jesus and live daily by Him.
