Concerning believers, will there any warning that this is about to take place? Actually, the bible doesn’t say. We are rather told to expect this event at any time, thusly, to live close to the Lord. In fact, John said, “and now, little children, abide in Him, that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming ” (1 Jn. 2:28). He than said speaking of the rapture, “and every man who has this hope in Him purifies himself, even as He is pure (1Jn. 3:3 So the very idea of the imminent return of the lord Jesus Christ for His saints has a strong tendency, even as the Holy Spirit said through John, to keep one close to the Lord, that is if one is truly watching and waiting for the coming. Few are. Much of the modern church doesn’t even believe in the rapture. Worse yet, most in the church are actually not even saved, o what can be expected?
These are trying times, where do we turn when life gets difficult for us to handel, maybe we should try God? The reason I say this is He wants us to come to Him in times of adversity, because He is there for us and He will help us. Do you need help? Then call on Jesus as He is the Lord over adversity.
I say this because the news is telling all the problems of the world and have no answers. Maybe the Lord is telling us that we need to get on our knees and repent of our sins and pray and He says He hears us.
The rapture is very near and could happen at any moment! Look at what the prophets are saying. Are you ready?
