The Rapture during the End Times promises to be a very, very, extremely extra-special huge event. You really, really, do NOT want to miss it!
Ready for it? “Got it all together?” It will happen like the unexpected thief in the night, with no prior texting alert of “Ready or not — here I come”. (Read: Matthew 24:42-44)
It will just …happen!
There will be no “game over” warning. No “Olly olly oxen free free free”, nor “Ally ally out are in free!” (Wikipedia) No players are exempt, as many wishfully tell themselves:
Hey: “Players who are hiding can come out into the open without losing the game!” (Wikipedia)
No they can’t. You snooze – you loose.
Do you want to be in on that amazing ride of a lifetime?
Jesus Himself tells us how this is going down — not me, not you, no mere puny human, no phoney baloney “prophet”. Only God Himself will make it happen. And it will go down in His Way.
To be “raptured” on that day — you will have to be considered “worthy” at that moment, by Jesus Himself. He is the One who will determine whether or not you are “worthy”, or “faithful”, whether or not you are a “wise servant” who does the right thing, whether or not you are a genuine one who does his service for the Lord “at the proper time“. Kind of strict, is it not? That is the One and Only kind of God there is. Have you accepted Him?
45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant whom his master has put in charge of his household to give the others [in the house] their food and supplies at the proper time? 46 Blessed is that [faithful] servant when his master returns and finds him doing so. – Matthew 24:45-46
What kind of faith do you think you have? Have you examined yourself lately?
First in importance is the question: Are you truly saved? Have you come to Jesus with sincerity and truth?
He who believes in Me [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Me], as the Scripture has said, ‘From his innermost being will flow continually rivers of living water.’” – John 7:38
The question Jesus puts to all of us is this (in Matthew 24:42-44):
Are you “alert” in your faith? Do you give your faith “strict attention”? Are you careful, cautious with your faith? Is yours active, or kind of sleepy, inattentive, sloppy, reckless? Jesus said,
42 “So be alert [give strict attention, be cautious and active in faith], for you do not know which day [whether near or far] your Lord is coming. 43 But understand this: If the head of the house had known what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore, you [who follow Me] must also be ready; because the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him. – Matthew 24:42-44
Jesus does not actually ask us a question. He tells us straight-out: “So be alert….” Are you?
