Every morning after the wifey and I have had our reading from the Guide Book to the Supernatural i,e, the Bible, I sit at my desk and scan the comments. Most of the time I leave then well enough alone, but this morning some of the comments have caught my attention and so I decided to post on that subject which instantly divides Christians, The Rapture.
We are told that we shall rise to meet the Lord in the air. I love that passage. I have had a vision of it, and I posted it here shortly after I received it. I believe in the Rapture of the church. I also belive that the Shroud of Turin may be evidence of the first rapture, Jesus resurrection! Now I’m really ticking some of you off! LOL!
Seriously, we know the Rapture will happen at some point and as demonstrated by some of the posts yesterday, this can be a hot button issue. Most often it divides us rather than bring us together. That being said, what are we instructed to do? We are instructed to destroy the works of the devil! We are living in a time that is unprecedented. The enemy grows bold and the supernatural is manifesting like never before. There are signs in the heavens! Earthquakes like the one today at 7.5. Volcanos that threaten to choke the skies. The gulf stream that may have stalled due to the oil spill. The AIDS epidemic that continues unabated. The slaughter of millions of unborn babies in abortion mills around the world. The New Age deception that tells us that we can be god. Satanic ritual magic that is pumped into our homes via, Lady Ga Ga. With all of this happening in our faces some of us want to argue when we get taken up! It’s exactly what the enemy wants. It is nothing more than a distraction that keeps us from carrying out our mandate of destroying the works of the devil!
I’ve said this before and I’ll post it here again. I have sat through lectures with charts and graphs, by very well-educated men that preached on the three different positions of when the rapture can occur. They all can’t be right! If we are intellectually honest, we can agree that in fact no one really knows when it will happen. I’d rather be fighting the works of the enemy until I get beamed up, than arguing when it’s going to happen. To me it’s pointless.
The endless debate about the rapture takes our eyes off the ball. It removes us from engaging the enemy and destroying his works and instead sets us against each other. We know the well-worn adage, divide and conquer and this issue is certainly divisive.
At some point it will be self-evident as to when the Rapture occurs. That said, it’s none of my business as to the when of it! He is in charge of it, not me. I would rather spend my time posting about the Great Deception that is all around us. Trying to awaken the sleeping church that is unaware of the coming great apostasy. Pointing to the signs that we are told are the birth pangs, in these last days. Speaking boldly about the promise of eternal life through the shedding of Yashua/Jesus’ blood. Most of all rescuing those who are caught in the deception!
In closing today’s post. When I had the vision of the Rapture, we were all gathered in the air, as far as I could see. We weren’t bunched together like sardines, but were spread out. There was a silence, a reverent silence because all of us who had been gathered knew exactly what had happened and where we were. There was also no sin nature. We were all translated in a twinkling of an eye and made like Him. I can comfort you with these words and they are comforting to know that at some point they will happen, but I will not badger you as to when …. Fight the enemy not each other!
