"HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR RAPTURE?" "WHAT SCRIPTURES IN THE BIBLE TALK ABOUT RAPTURE?"
Some two precious children of the LORD yesterday wrote to me and asked me some very fundamental questions about Rapture and how to prepare for rapture.
These for sure are the main fundamental issues of this moment in time because the time for the LORD Jesus Christ to Rapture His bride is at hand.
Is it few days from now? Few weeks from now? Few months from now? Only the LORD knows.
But we are for sure in the season for the LORD to come and pick His bride through rapture based on what is happening on planet earth right now as a correlation to what the LORD spoke about in the bible about the end-times in relation to the rapture of the bride of Christ. Also based on what the spirit of the LORD is saying through prophesies, dreams, visions, visitation, manifestations etc to young men, young women, old men and old women at this point in time.
So, for the benefit of others reading this, as I answer the two precious children of the LORD God Almighty (JEHOVAH, YAHWEH) who have asked the two critical questions, I want to share with everybody what the spirit of the LORD has led me in my heart to answer the two precious children of the LORD. Feel free to share with your family, friends, colleagues and countrymen.
I’m from Europe and here in my country nobody talks about the Rapture. They think it’s not the time. I read and heard your messages and in my spirit, I know that I know it’s the truth: Jesus is coming to take his Bride very very very soon. Even though I’m doing my best every day, I’m struggling with my daily prayers and the preparation for the rapture. How can I do it? How can we stand in holiness and repentance?
What scriptures in the bible does it talk about being raptured by Jesus?
On your question about how to prepare for the Rapture:
Turning away from sin and turning away from walking on the broad road and asking the LORD Jesus Christ with sincerity from your heart to wash you with His precious blood and to have mercy on you and forgive you your sins.
Asking the LORD Jesus Christ to always cover you with His precious blood and baptize you with His Holy Spirit.
The LORD is merciful and He will forgive you all sins.
But since we live in a sinful world, Repentance on a daily basis is essential.
Remember to also forgive all those who have wronged you.
2-Living in Righteousness:
-Living a life that is right with the LORD. It entails being obedient to the LORD by following His commandments. This involves seeking and following the truth as stated in the Bible. So reading the Bible will show you how to live a life of Righteousness.
3-Walking in Holiness
The bible says that without Holiness no one will see the LORD.
Walking in Holiness means separating yourself from the worldly lifestyle and taking the narrow road where the presence of the LORD is and where the power of the Holy Spirit will guide you. It means sacrificing your life for the LORD, and this may mean avoiding the worldly habits like smoking, drinking etc and living a life worthy of your calling of being a child of the LORD God Almighty (JEHOVAH, YAHWEH). You may also have to let go of friends, family, habits etc that do not glorify the LORD since they may be a bad influence on your walk with the LORD.
4-Surrendering completely to The LORD Jesus Christ
The LORD requires complete surrender of one’s life to him. Half world and half Christ is not accepted by the LORD, and those who live such life are known as lukewarm Christians. The LORD says in the book of Revelation chapter 3 that He will spit such lukewarm Christians because they are neither warm nor cold.
So surrender fully to the LORD and let Him take care and control of your life.
5-Watch and pray
-The LORD is only coming to pick those who are watching for His return because in so doing they will be like the 5 wise virgins in the book of Mathew Chapter 25 whose lamps are full of the oil (The Holy Spirit) because they endeavor to be in the presence of the LORD in prayer, Repenting, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and full surrender to the LORD Jesus Christ.
THE BIBLE VERSES THAT TALKS ABOUT RAPTURE
1st Thessalonians 5:1-11 Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
1st Thessalonians 4:13-18 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.
1st Corinthians 15:50-54 ‘“I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”’
Revelation 16:15 “Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
Daniel 12:1-2 ‘“At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.”’
PREPARE THE WAY IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS AND FULL SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YAHUSHUA). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!
I acknowledge today that you are lord and savior of all mankind,
and today I have recognized my shortfall,
I repent and turn away from all sin.
Please cover me with your precious blood,
and establish your word in my life,
that I may be found in righteousness and holiness
and write my name in your book of life
and baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit
in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Shalom!!! Shalom!!! Shalom!!!
