“When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” (Col. 3:4)
“For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Rev. 6:17)
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1)
There have been and are even now much wiser men of God than I that have spoken on the Rapture, who have been shown the truths of the Scriptures of this blessed and feared moment, that moment when in a twinkling of an eye we will be changed, and then in the next instant the most horrific time on this planet that will ever be will begin.
Far too many who understand the truth of these words have begun to fixate upon that moment, both to the loss of those they meet they are to bring to the cross and to their own continued growth in the Lord, and our adversary, as he always does, is using these days to his fullest advantage in this regard. Those who do not believe in the Rapture are almost impossible to persuade otherwise, for some reason, nearly always in a personal way, they feel they must go through these most evil of days, that by their suffering they are showing their love for the Savior.
I contend they do not understand the horror of the times and most certainly would think twice if they understood what is going to happen to nearly all who will openly profess the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in the days of Jacob’s Troubles. Pain and suffering are two words that comes to mind, and they do not even come close to what those who will not love their lives to the death will experience.
Not always of course, but many times when I am online I attempt to reach those who disbelieve in the Rapture, I have saved on my computer notes pertaining to the subject, truths that have been accumulated and prayed over many times, and I simply copy and paste them in the reply or comment section. Few attempt to debate them and those that do are shown by the Scriptures the error of their current understanding, yet there has yet to be one that has come to full agreement to them, they would rather see themselves right even when the Word of God shows them they are wrong.
I find no joy in this, I take no pride in it, it only frustrates me that they will not accept what is clearly shown in the Word of God.
This letter my friends could have been about baptism, it could have been about speaking in tongues, about the keeping of the Law by one who has been saved by grace, about attending continuously a church you know forsook the Lord God years ago. This letter is not about the truth of the Rapture, it is about the truths of the Word of God.
“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;” (Col. 1:9)
This verse is the one that changed my walk with Christ after walking with Him for almost thirty years, this verse showed me what I needed if I was going to serve Him effectually and for His glory, I needed to be shown the truths of the Word of God, and it was and is His responsibility to do that. How I accept those truths is up to me, believing them to be as such or not does not change the truth in any way, shape or form.
It makes no difference to me if you believe in the Rapture or not, you will be proven wrong if you do not when it happens, but if you do not pray for Him to reveal His truth to you, you will never know truth.
