He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God
The longer God sees fit to keep me here on Earth the more I long to be with him. I do believe many folks are longing for the rapture. I feel too many are wanting raptured from responsibility. The responsibility of witnessing, working, and Word study. I am longing for the day Jesus comes to get his bride. I am weary. It seems my whole ministry I have been going at this like I am fighting a brush fire. There are too many dying and going to hell not too, there are also too many “religious reprobates” not doing anything. When I look around and see how bad things really are first off it breaks my heart. Secondly it makes me long for a place called Heaven. God is very clear in his Word, Heaven will not be like Earth. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. Revelation 22:14-15. Dear friend if you do not know Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, please call upon him before it is too late. Romans 10:9-10 says, “that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Jesus is coming back very soon. Please do not be left behind.
Here is a thought on why I am looking so forward to that blessed day when the Church will be caught up to be with the Lord.
1. Heaven is sweet- Psalm 87:3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.
Street of gold, walls of jasper. Need I say more, oh yeah, Jesus, the one who purchased me from sin with his own blood will be there. Forget looking for grandma and grandpa, I WANT TO SEE MY SAVIOUR! He has done so much for me I am looking for the day I get to see him face to face.
2. Hypocrisy will stop- Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
No one in Heaven will be playing Church. Only the blood bought bride of Christ will be there.
3. Holy separation- I Thessalonians 4:17-18 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
The apostle Paul closes out this chapter with “comfort one another with these words.” There is nothing more comforting to me knowing we have a blessed hope. This life, and this world is not all that there is. As the song says “I have a home that’s so much better, I’m gonna go there sooner or later. I don’t want to get adjusted to this world.”
Jesus has not forgot about us. He is coming back to get His bride. All I can say is “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
