You can repent

 

You Can Repent  LET JESUS HAVE THE FINAL WORD

Well praise Jesus today everyone.  There is a pretty common question that I am hearing as of recently, and that is, “Can I repent?”  “Do I have hope”… See, a lot of people since Covid-19 has started have fallen into depression and people have started to realize the difference between following God and following the world and some people feel completely hopeless and stuck in the world, and a lot of people are to the point that they just don’t think that God will receive them, they have done things that they don’t thing they can find forgiveness for or that God can accept them back.  And what I see is a lot of people deciding for God, they decide themselves that they are worthless, that God won’t receive them, and they are convinced that they have no hope.  And then as soon as that happens they have suicidal thoughts, they are very depressed and they are ready to take their own life.  Now, if you think about this reasonably, that is exactly what satan would want, but would your Father in HEAVEN want that?  Would Jesus have you still alive, on this earth to condemn you, to make you feel hopeless and just preparing for you to die so that you can go to hell?  Of course NOT!  We know that God does not take any pleasure in a single soul gong to hell.  And in reality Jesus quickly forgives our sin, and he EASILY forgives our sin.  And He is ready to forgive YOU and to cleanse YOU from your unrighteousness IF you are willing to come to HIM and be cleaned.  Now that is the big question ARE YOU READY TO BE CLEANED?  A lot of purging has been happening.  The true church has been being purged, meaning being cleaned of her sins, being purged of unrighteousness and a lot of things over the last 3, 4, years have been coming out in regards to the impurities in the church.  God has been showing the world the difference between purity, His true children and hypocrisy, those in dead religion.  (Revelation of TRUTH) was starting to be even more revealed through covid and all these things, churches being SHUT DOWN.  Clearly the true church is NOT the organization of men.  Men can get tother and they can say: “This is the church this is the body of Christ, we are gathered together under this roof…”  But how can the body of Christ EVER be shut down?  If we truly are a spiritual body, if we truly are God’s children, and connected to HIM in the spiritual realm, NOTHING should separate us from HIM and HIS LOVE and HIS protection and His provision, nothing should separate us from being part of HIS BODY!  But you see during this hour of covid churches being disconnected, being shut down, people not being allowed to enter into those places.  AND THIS IS ACTUALLY A WONDERFUL THING THAT HAPPEND GUYS!  People think it is Christian persecution, but in realty it is the HAND OF GOD.  God is giving YOU A CHANCE to be separate from hypocrisy, separate from dead religion, separate from even your own family.  Time to be ALONE and to THINK, time to REPENT!  Time to repair your own heart, to get your own life in order if you want to!  Jesus WILL take you back He will receive you if you are willing to go to Him.   So don’t decide for yourself (that you are going to hell).  People will say; “Well, I already got the shots, and then I have got this that and the other…”  Well don’t decide for yourself that you are condemned)  Somewhere it's written about how if our own heart condemns us… (1 John 3:20)  A lot of people’s hearts condemn them, and that excludes them from entering into the Kingdom of God.  But they haven’t heart it from Jesus.  Jesus hasn’t rejected them.  If Jesus rejects you THEN you have a problem.  But don’t just ASSUME that Jesus Christ is going to reject you.  A lot of people say; “Well how can I reach God, I am a sinner, all my life I’ve been a sinner and I know God won’t hear the prayer of sinners…”  Well, He KNOWS the HEARTS OF MEN, and He knows IF YOU DESIRE righteousness!  So, if you are a sinner today but you desire righteousness, then the Lord will start purifying your heart today.  And He WILL hear your prayer.  He will purge you of your unrighteousness and your prayers WILL BE HEARD!  But those who continue to sin and who think they are FINE before God, they are content with their churches, their DEAD RELIGION, they are content with a LUKEWARM lifestyle, they are not concerned with getting right with God, THOSE people ARE GOING TO BE REJECTED.  They are going to find themselves without oil, without light and without ENTRY into God’s Kingdom.  So, if I can say anything right now it would be LET JESUS HAVE THE FINAL WORD.  Don’t let your heart condemn you.  Sure we have all done bad things, sure we have all fallen short of the glory of God, and NONE of us will enter heaven by our OWN good works, or by the arm of our flesh.  BUT LET JESUS HAVE THE FINAL SAY IN YOUR LIFE, NOT YOURSELF!  Because a LOT of people are condemning themselves, (Judas did this too by the way) and then they have NO HOPE because they are just ready to go off and crawl into a hole and die.  It would be better that you put your life, your emotions, your wellbeing in the HANDS OF JESUS CHRIST and let HIM deal with you.  That way IF you do have hope, you WILL have hope.  But what happens if you do have some hope, but you condemn yourself?  If that happens, if you condemn yourself and you say; “I can’t pray anymore, I know God will send me to hell, I know He rejects me…”  THEN what you will do is you will walk away from your ONLY salvation, because you are convinced that God will reject you anyway, (WHICH IS A LIE) And then you won’t cry out to Jesus, you won’t ask Him for help, you will go your own way and you will just die, AND THAT WILL BE EXACTLY WHAT sATAN WANTS ANYWAY!  All of this to say, you would be FAR better of putting yourself in the hands of Jesus, asking Him to HELP YOU, to PICK YOU UP, to GIVE YOU LIFE.  You have to have a WORD FROM GOD!  Don’t buy the devils lie that Jesus won’t hear you because you are a sinner.  If you desire repentance, JESUS CAN FORGIVE YOU.  HE WILL FORGIVE YOU.  He EASILY FORGIVES sinners who desire holiness!   He sees your heart.  HE SEES WHO YOU WILL BECOME!  And He is willing to pick you up, to pure you, to purify you and to put you in NEW garments.  So don’t assume.  Don’t walk away from the LORD.  Don’t stop praying.  Don’t become discouraged in this hour.  Rather pray, push your way through to Jesus and don’t give up hope.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Women's Place in the Church

 

There are some Christians who are very confused about the place of women in the body of Christ. The main concern here is to be in submission to Jesus. If you are a woman and you are in submission to Jesus then don't let anyone shut you up or stop you from speaking the truth or sharing your testimony. The problem in the early church remains the SAME today for many "Christian" women;  These women are out of line with gossip, busy bodies, lustful, and who want to lord authority over men for manipulative purposes.  When men and women both are disconnected from the Spirit of God everything is messed up. If you want everything to fall into place and it to make sense, then  get to know Jesus and then everything just works quite properly.

Reason for the scriptures and need for revelation

Reason for the Scriptures and the Need of Revelation

The Scriptures that we have today that are recorded in our Bibles were recorded by men like me who loved the SPIRIT OF GOD, who obeyed GOD and wanted other people to REPENT and have LIFE!  Those early prophets and disciples of Jesus did not write the Scriptures for their OWN gratification, or that people would honor THEM, they didn’t care what other people thought about them, they didn’t care if their writings were revered (worshiped by the religious world) They wanted people to REPENT and they warned people that if they didn’t repent God would send them to HELL.  A lot of Christians today, they revere and they elevate the Bible, but if the prophets of old and the early disciples were alive today, they would disagree with them, they would harm them in the same way that the Pharisees harmed the early disciples and persecuted them, and killed Jesus.  It is very hypocritical that the church culture reveres and elevates the Bible, but hates the TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.  You know, there are some Christians that feel very condemned if they hear from God, they think that if they write anything down, that they are hearing from God, that maybe it’s like they are adding to the book of Revelation.  There is that Scripture in Revelation that says whoever adds to this book, God will add to them the plagues recorded in this book… and many Christians think that if they hear anything about revelation, that is an active relationship from God, bringing them revelation, that they can’t write it down because they would be condemned, that they would be adding to the book of Revelation.  That is a lie from satan.  The book of Acts, is the Acts of the apostles, the acts of the early Christians, that is the disciples of Jesus, and that book today is STILL being recorded.  We are Jesus’s disciples and our lives are still being recorded, the things that we do and say are PART of the Acts of the Disciples.  And if we write down the things that the Lord teaches us, it can help us to remember the things that the Holy Spirit is teaching us, and it can also help others.  By NO WAY is that against God.  You NEED to have revelation from God, NEW REVELATION, revelation that comes to YOU every day!  Of course, there is Revelation in the Scriptures that will not be changed and should never be (tampered, altered) touched or manipulated or controlled.  But also God wants a living relationship with you, He wants to give you revelations about your marriage, revelations about your job, where you should live, your every day life… and you need to be hearing from HIM, and if you are not, you are in trouble.  A lot of Christians, they read the Bible, and they THINK they’re hearing from the Word of God, but they don’t have ANY LIVING REVELATION, they don’t know the LIVING WORD OF GOD!  And because of that they don’t have LIFE, they don’t have the living words of Jesus Christ in their heart.  So, the question is, do you hear from Jesus?  Do you have a real relationship with Him?  Do you KNOW the Living God and is He guiding you and giving you revelation, direction, His PEACE every single day?  Or are you like the LOST CHILDREN OF CHURCH that continue to follow dead religion, thinking that they have life because they have the Scriptures?  They refuse to come to Jesus, but they elevate the Scriptures, thinking that THAT will save them.  Don’t be deceived by the deception of the scriptures.  Rather come into the TRUTH, get to know JESUS CHRIST FOR REAL!  He is ALIVE and He will lead you and guide you each and every day because HE IS THE ALIVE!  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

The problem with rapping, rocking or partying for Jesus

 Jesus did not call us to try to look "cool" and rap/rock/party etc... about the kingdom of God, to try and make His house look appealing, showy or post-modern from the outside. Jesus does not call us to take the limelight. Rather Jesus calls us to the HOLY life. (Which apparently isn't very cool these days)  He calls us to make disciples who will ALSO be serious about Him, NOT about music, rap, sport, hobby or our clothing or anything else in this WORLD that we THINK we can use to make God's porch more appealing. There is no such thing. There is only one way and it is the LORD'S way or the highway. Proclaim Jesus Christ from your OWN MOUTH in a serious way and people will listen. Take repentance seriously, take your own relationship with Jesus very seriously and others will see your testimony as genuine and true!  But if you mix your so-called "testimony" with cheap gimmicks and tricks, then before you know it, you'll be working for Satan quite effectively, yet believing you're still a good Christian. 


How to recognize genuine Christian faith

Spirit guides and false revelations

Hearing God is not shallow. Some people think that hearing God is about getting random little messages that pop into their head that seems spiritual or from the spiritual realm. Be leery about those kind of shallow quick and easy to receive messages, that come into your mind. Satan often uses shallow, easily and quickly inserted thoughts as a sort of catalyst or the inception of very poor judgment decisions that end in disastrous outcomes. Don't trust the knockoff spirits that pretend to be the Holy Spirit or some kind of a spiritual guide from the spirit realm. Placing faith in these sorts of "revelations" has brought many Christians all kinds of confusion and spiritual train wrecks. If you want to hear God, you have to listen to Him DEEPER than the shallow spirits speak. Do not listen with your physical ears. Do not listen in your mind to the things that come to you sporadically and randomly. Rather listen with the ears of your CONSCIENCE that God has given you, in the VERY bottom of your soul. Using your conscience, you can tune your channel to hear from the Spirit of GOD and no longer pick up the vibrations of the demonic spirits PRETENDING to be your spirit guide.

The True Rapture

 

The True Rapture

Praise Jesus today everyone.  The last couple days I was praying and talking to Jesus about some questions I had in regarding the gathering together of the saints in the air.  And this “snatching up”, or this “being taken up”.  And I did a bit of research on this, because we know that the word “rapture” isn’t in the Bible, but that idea certainly IS in the Bible, it is a Scriptural teaching about the rapture.  But a lot of the teachings around the rapture that the Christian church has taught are very VERY poor, for example, the Christian church teaches; “Just believe in the rapture and you won’t have to go through great tribulation, you will be snatched out BEFORE this time period…”  And we know that Jesus didn’t teach that, for example, if you look at Matthew chapter 24, you see Jesus talking about the great tribulation, if you look at verse 21 Jesus says; “For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time nor EVER shall be, and unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved, but for the elect’s sake, those days will be shortened.”  So, you hear about the elect and these days being shortened and the tribulation, so then the question is for a lot of people; “Well, WHEN are we going to go up and be with the LORD?”  And what Jesus says about this in verse 29 is; “Immediately AFTER THE TRIBULATION of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give it’s light, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heaven’s will be shaken…”  So, it’s directly AFTER the tribulation that these things are happening.  “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with POWER and great glory.  And He will send His angels with a sound of a great trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heaven to the other.”  So, this gathering together, or this being “caught up” together, when the angels are gathering everyone is NOT BEFORE the tribulation, but if you look at verse 29 immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days.  See, all of these tribulations and trials that happen in the world, happen for our refinement, for the purification of Jesus’s Church, you and I absolutely WILL go through great tribulation, NONE of us are going to escape trials and tribulations and great tribulation on the earth, ALL of us go through that.  So, this belief that the Christian church has been teaching, that we will not suffer persecution, that we will not go through trials and tribulations, that we will be caught up, that we will be saved from that, IS ALL A LIE. 

But what we WILL be taken away from IS THE JUDGMMENT OF GOD THAT HAPPENS NEXT.  After we have been taken out of the world and the Holy Spirit retracted from the world, the world is NOT going through trials and tribulations anymore that just happen by men or their persecution (men inflicted grief) But what the world will experience is the hand of GOD’S judgment, and it’s NOT for the sake of refining His Church anymore but it is for judgment and punishment for sinners who refuse to REPENT!  And at this period of time there will be NO MORE CHANCES for ANYONE to repent on the earth.  When all the true saints have been pulled up to heaven, the world will mourn, they will see the sign of the Son of God coming on the clouds with POWER and great GLORY, and they will have NO MORE opportunity to repent or confess their sins, they will KNOW that they are the damned, exactly like how all of those who were shut out of Noah’s Ark were mourning when they were drowning.  They were probably saying; “Please give us another chance God.”  But there was no more chance or opportunity for salvation.  The night had already come, the rain was coming down and the floods coming up and the whole world was drowned, ALL of them died in the flood.  And the same thing is going to happen again, but it will be with FIRE.  We need to be prepared because the door (to life eternal) is closing.   I want to share with you a few things that the Lord showed me while praying about the rapture, and one of them is, interestingly enough, the meaning of the word “RAPTURE”, if you look this up, the Greek idea of rapture, what it means is “We are taken away” or “We are caught up”.  And this idea of being TAKEN, it reminds us when Jesus speaks about the end, He  speaks about this in Matthew chapter 24, when He says; “Two men will be in a field, one will be TAKEN, and the other left, two women will be grinding at the mill, one will be TAKEN, the other will be left…”  And I prayed about this and I said; “Lord, where are they being taken to, I don’t care where in the world this is happening, I know it is world wide…”  And the Holy Spirit of God showed me that this is the exact same question that Jesus’s disciples were asking, and I had never thought of it like that, because I had always thought that the disciples were asking; “Where Lord, where will this take place.”  But the disciples were actually asking; “Where are these people being taken TO?”  And here’s the really interesting part of this, when Jesus gives His answer to His disciples to where they are taken, it is a twofold riddle, and depending on which way you take it or which side you are on, BOTH are the right interpretation.  So, if these people that Jesus is talking about, when He’s answering their question of WHERE ARE THEY TAKEN TO, if they are taken into judgment, if they are being taken to HELL, like how all of those who missed the Arc were TAKEN in judgment, they were TAKEN away, they were TAKEN by the storm, so if these people that Jesus was speaking about were being taken away into HELL, then they are not just a body, but they are a corpse, and a corpse has a very negative connotation, it’s NOT the Body of Christ, but it is a DEAD BODY, and some interpretations are written that Jesus said that; “Where the corpse lies, there the vultures will be gathered.”  A vulture also has a very negative implication spiritually.  A vulture represents a demon, it represents death.  And so, if you are being taken in judgment, and you are asking “WHERE LORD?” Or where are this people being taken?  THEN, they are being taken in judgment, and they are taking your dead corpse to HELL, vultures representing demos, demons are allowed to feast on your flesh and to take you to judgment, take you to hell.  BUT, on the flip side of this riddle, if they are being taken into everlasting life, and the question is; “Where are they taken.”, then they are being taken as a BODY, which is the Body of Christ, and they are being taken on the wings of the Eagle up to the cloud of witnesses, which is in the heavens.  So, whichever way you interpret this is going to be right.  But it is hinged upon whether you are part of the Body of Christ or the body of Satan, the body of the WORLD.  So Jesus gives this riddle in a twofold manner that it can mean two things and it is BOTH where ALL the world will end IN THE END.  Either we will be on the cloud of witnesses that will be with Jesus Christ for ever and ever, caught up to be with Him, or we will be taken down to Hell, into judgment for all eternity, that was supposed to be for Satan and his angels/demons.                              We’re going to spend either eternity in heaven or in hell.  And we have to choose to go with Jesus into everlasting life.  I know there are a lot of deceptions about the rapture.  People think that you have to believe in a pretribulation rapture, that you have to believe that Jesus is going to snatch you up before things get really bad on this earth, and if you don’t believe that then you won’t be raptured.  But Jesus never spoke about that, and He never expected us to understand His whole plan or to understand all doctrines perfectly.  But Jesus is always looking at our hearts, and if our hearts are prepared, if we have made our hearts and pure before the Lord, because HE is purifying us and putting on our white garments, then whenever He calls, we will be prepared.  A lot of people will not be prepared, but they have been putting their faith in the rapture and they will go their entire life, up to their death, and when Jesus comes, when they go to meet Jesus, He will say to them; “Away from Me, you who commit iniquity, I don’t know you.”  And they NOT have been prepared to meet the Lord.  But I want to be prepared to meet Jesus, I want Him to say; “Good and well done my faithful servant…”  I want to enter into His presence with thanksgiving.                                                                                                                     One of my other questions about the rapture that I was praying about to the Lord is; “How is it the Apostle Paul spoke about souls sleeping.”  Because I know that souls don’t soul sleep, and this is evident by when Jesus was speaking about how God is the God of the living, not the God of the dead, and also many saints have seen the afterlife and came back to report how they saw people there; such people as King David, other great men of faith and even their own family members in heaven.  They are not “soul sleeping” in the ground waiting around for the rapture.  But if you read the Apostle Paul’s words you may come to the conclusion that all the people of old, up from the point of time that Jesus resurrected from the dead, up to the present time, that all of the dead are sleeping, meaning that they are just dead in the earth, and then on the final day, on the final judgment, Jesus blows a trumpet, and the dead in Christ rise first, then AFTER the dead in Christ rise THEN we also will hear that trumpet and go up to heaven.  So, I was praying about this; “How Lord, can the Apostle Paul say this, because I know people are already in heave, those who have died in Christ are not just soul sleeping, waiting for the rapture, they are already in heaven with YOU.”   And the Lord showed me that the reason why these souls proceed us, or they go up first is because they have gone BEFORE us, they have DIED before us.  See, all the people who went before us in the faith, such as my mom who was a believer, who went to be with the Lord, all of these people had their rapture, or their GATHERING up, their snatching up to heaven before we have.  And they certainly will NOT be waiting in the dirt for their rapture until we have.  If I die today, and the Lord snatches me up and I am brought before Him, I can know that my mom is already in heaven, and that those who have deceased in their physical bodies before me, are not just waiting dead in the earth, but they are already WITH THE LORD.  So, every single person who is caught up or raptured, IT HAPPENS AT THEIR FINAL BREATH.  From our perspective it looks like nothing’s happening, no one’s being raptured, nothing supernatural is happening, in our perspective people have been dying for thousands of years.  We have to remember that from God’s perspective 1000 years is like a day.  And all these things have been happening in seconds for Him.  So in God’s view, or when He tries to explain the snatching up or a rapture, or a gathering of the Church, a gathering of His saints, how it appears to us is; “All of this must be happening at the same time…”  And then if you have seen Hollywood’s rendition of the rapture, it looks like everyone just goes up to heaven all at the exact same time, when the trumpet blows, but from God’s perspective IT IS happening pretty much at the same time, but from OUR perspective, this whole thing, this rapture of the church, has been taking 2000 YEARS!  You know, my mom died 5, 6 years ago, and other brothers in the faith have died 10, 20, 50, 80 years ago, but their rapture, or their snatching up to the Lord to be in the cloud of witnesses happened at THAT period of time.  And even if you look at the pictures of pictures of people being raptured, if you look at people’s renditions that believe it all happens at the same time, you will notice that there are souls higher UP in the air, and there are souls lower down that are JUST leaving the earth.  Now if it all happed at EXACTLY at the same time, then all the souls should be at the same altitude.  But the fact that there are some souls higher than other souls indicates that those souls that are higher left their bodies earlier than those souls that are lower down. (Indicating a progression of departures throughout time) 

              In our perspective of things, we can interpret everything to be natural; people have just been dying, no one’s been raptured, nothing supernatural is happening.  BUT ONE DAY we are going to see from the Lord’s perspective, if we are worthy to enter into His Kingdom.  And we will see that all these things that we were doing, if we were doing them in the Spirit of GOD, were supernatural.  We will see things not in this dim mirror that we see them now, but we will see them from our Father’s perspective.  And the big problem that Christianity has right now is that they are not looking from GOD’S perspective, they are looking from Hollywood’s perspective.  And they are looking from the perspective of all these false prophets, who are soothsayers, who are preaching sensationalism, who are making people have FALSE hopes, thinking that they don’t have to endure with Jesus or go through trials and tribulations to the end, they have put all their hope in this FALSE image of Jesus and all this false interpretation of the bible.  But if we want to see from God’s perspective, then we just have to pray and say; “Lord, show me what these things mean, help me to understand who you are, I want to see from GOD’S perspective.  I don’t want to see from men’s perspective or my own interpretation of the Scripture, I want to see what is actually happening.  YOU are the Truth, YOU are the Way, YOU are the Life!”  And if we start to make JESUS our Teacher, if we start to make His Spirit our guide, then He will lead us in the truth, we won’t be deceived by people’s ideas of the rapture, or their ideas about what will happen next. 

              I know on the internet right now there are a lot of speculation when the rapture will take place, people are saying that the antichrist or the man of perdition will be revealed in a few years, I don’t know I think they are saying 2025 or something, and then then think 3 years after that will be the rapture of the church, and they make all of these assumptive ideas based on other people’s knowledge of supposed revelations and they think they have the plan of God figured out.  Gut that’s not how it works.  No one can be able to foil God’s plan.  If people could understand God’s plan, then certainly Satan would have been able to understand it, and certainly Satan would have been able then to foil God’s plan, he would have been able to kill Jesus, he would have been able to find the Virgin Mary and destroy her before, but as it happened, EVEN THOUGH there was all these prophecies about where Jesus would be born and WHEN He would be born and HOW it would take place, NO ONE was able to foil God’s plan, all of those who were trying to kill the baby Jesus, NONE of them was able to kill Him, He was protected by GOD, and GO FIGURE, that GOD is MORE powerful than Satan and NONE of us know His plan.  We will not be able to predict the future using prophecies, we will not be able to navigate our life or other people’s lives into eternity just using Scriptures or trying to figure out how all of this stuff will take place.  BUT, if we are just HUMBLE before God and just say; “Jesus, I  trust you, I want to hold your hand and go with you, I don’t understand what is going to take place, I don’t understand all these prophecies, but I do TRUST YOU LORD.  And I do give you my LIFE.  Everything that I am, I want to be a vessel to be used by YOU, I TUST YOU, I trust your plan, I trust your way, and I will walk with you, even if I don’t understand because I know that your plan for me is BEST.”  If we can be as Children, walking with HIM, then He will lead us and guide us into EVERLASTING LIFE, and we won’t have to be worried about what people think or worried about navigating into eternity by just reading more and more commentaries and more books and listening to what prophets will predict with the next wave of (I don’t know), covid or the next war or the next famine upon earth or the next prophet that comes out.  We WON’T have to be worried anymore about that stuff.  A relationship with Jesus is about walking with Him, and trusting Him. Walking by faith, not by sight, every single day.  Every single day denying ourselves, picking up our cross and going with Him by FAITH.  And if we live by FAITH then step by step we grow spiritually.  The Lord gives us revelation as we walk with Him.  And when we trust Him and He knows that we trust Him, then He feeds us more of His truth, He gives us more of His awesome revelation.  And then we can encourage others because we are being fed by the LIFE GIVER, not just by some regurgitated information from a pastor or some old information from a bible study.                                                                               So, I want to encourage you that the rapture is real, it doesn’t happen as the Christian church is preaching, but THERE IS A SNATCHING UP, THERE IS A GATHERING of the saint, there is a cloud of witnesses.  We WILL go be with the LORD in the SKY like the eagle, we will raise up like the wings of the eagle, we are the BODY OF CHRIST and we are the ones who are God’s Elect, IF we choose to stay with Him and hold His hand to the VERY END.  But those Christians who feel entitled, that feel like they are the ones who are going to be raptured, not you, that they will be sucked out of persecution, trials and tribulations, they are going to have the scare of their life when they are LEFT BEHIND, when they stand at the door knocking saying; “Lord OPEN TO US!”  and they are SHUT OUT and the Lord says to them; GO AWAY, I DON’T KNOW YOU, you who commit sin and commit iniquity. It’s not about believing certain doctrines that the church has taught, it’s not about being “right”, but it’s about who we FOLLOW.  It is about following and knowing Jesus Christ, being led by His Holy Spirit.  And if we are led by Him, even if we don’t understand perfectly, even if our ideas of the Bible are a little bit off, it doesn’t matter because Jesus is leading us, He will correct us, HE will discipline us AND HE WILL LEAD US INTO EVERLASTING LIFE. 

              So, don’t be discouraged by people’s ideas of the rapture, their different interpretations.  Don’t be discouraged by any of that, but rather keep your eyes on Jesus, knowing that He will lead us and guide us.  He is the one that knows His plan, we don’t have to know it.  We have to TRUST HIM and hold HIS hand to the VERY END!  May the grace of Jesus be with you.
