PREPARE FOR RAPTURE: IT WILL HAPPEN UNEXPECTEDLY – Matthew

rapture

Everyone Must Prepare For The Raptured

(Passage: Matthew 24)

The current events that we all witness now signify that we at the period of the End Time. The scripture is being fulfilled in our days, which signifies the rapture of saints can happen at any moment. Everyone ought to take this seriously and prepare for the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Jesus discussed his second coming with his disciples and stated that earth inhabitants will see him descending from heaven to transport his saints home.

Christ promised his disciples (while on earth) that he would ascend to heaven and return at the later date to transport his believers (the Christians) to heaven.

Only those who have confessed Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior will be raptured when the time comes. Jesus said;

“Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” (Matthew 24:30-31).

(Rapture means the transportation of Jesus’ followers to heaven).

second coming

Rapture Is Meant For the Repentant Sinners

Anyone who can repent of his (or her) sin and confesses Jesus as Lord will qualify for the rapture.

The end will come to this present earth after the rapture. God will bring our world to extinction and create a new one that will host those who have confessed and served him in this present earth.

It is important to note that Christ will come to rapture Christians to heaven before this world comes to an end.

Christ will come suddenly when people have least expected. Unfortunately, people who have refused to confess Jesus as their Lord and Savior would be caught unaware. They will not qualify for the rapture.

Those who are left behind in this world after the rapture will, unfortunately, live at the mercy of Satan who would rule the world at the time.

Afterward, God will set up his (grand) last judgment and send Satan and his followers to hell. God will condemn them to an everlasting lake of fire called Hell-Fire.

GOD’S DIRECTIVES HAVE SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE – Matthew

directives

Believers Must Trust God’s Directives For Their Lives

(Passage: Matthew 16)

The best decision a person can take in life is to follow God’s directives. Jesus knew the reason for his life’s existence; he must prepare the salvation pathway and save people. Peter who was passionate about his master (Jesus) would rather see him following a different path.

Peter ignorantly persuaded Jesus to change his course. He wanted him to not sacrifice his life, but rather hang around and remain his good boss.

Peter lacked spiritual understanding and did not realize that God’s directive for Christ was for him to die to save humanity from their sins.

Jesus rebuked Peter for his spiritual insensitivity as the Bible reported;

“… From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.

Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to you!” But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men” (Matthew 16:21-23).

spiritual

Spiritual Directives Can’t Be Understood With Literal Assessment

Christians must allow the Holy Spirit to direct us in making a decision that can benefit us and glorify God.

Believers must not judge a matter with visual and literal assessment only. We must be prayerful while evaluating a matter and let God guide us into making an appropriate decision.

No Christian should engage in any spiritual activity with a carnal mind; we must not allow the flesh to rule us!

The cravings of the flesh are not limited to pride, selfishness, gluttony, immorality, injustice, and other ungodly acts.

Carnality is also frowned upon by God, and believers must do away with it as much as possible!

A person who allows the Spirit of God to rule him or her will save himself from making any irrational decision that he may later regret.

A Spirit-led person will live a life that radiates God’s beauty that will be rewarded in this life and in heaven.

acceptance

Pray For The Spirit Of Discernment and Ability To Follow God’s Directive

Dear God, please make me a Christian that allows the Holy Spirit to direct him. Give me the gift of spiritual discernment to differentiate between good and evil.

Help me to make decisions that will glorify your name at all times. Please let my life always be pleasant to you, so that I can qualify for your benefits on earth and in heaven.

For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

GOD’S LAW IS NOT THE SAME AS HUMAN TRADITION – Matthew

God's law

Simply Understand That Tradition Does Not Equate To God’s Law

(Passage: Matthew 21)

Some traditions promote moral standards, but we must all understand there is no tradition that is comparable to God’s law. Jesus Christ expressed this important teaching as he violated the tradition of his opponent to promote God’s law.

Christ contradicted the unpopular Jewish tradition and disrupted some activities of the temple merchants. Christ, against the order of the day, also allowed people to shout Hosanna to his praise, as the opponents raged.

The action of Christ against the status quo insinuated the enemies’ fury to an extent that they planned for his life. The traditionalist wanted to kill him (but they were incapacitated until his time was ripe).

The following Bible quotes are some examples of Christ’s actions that threw his opponent off guard and they wanted him dead,

… So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: “Hosanna to the Son of David!” (Matthew 21:6-9).

“…Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ Hosanna in the highest!” And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, “Who is this?” So the multitudes said, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.”

Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. And He said to them “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’”

Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them. But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant and said to Him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise’?” (Matthew 21:9-16).

obedience

A Child of God Must Be Certain of God’s Law

Children of God must know how to draw a line between any human tradition and God’s divine law. Human traditions are not the same as God’s law.

God’s rule of law is supreme, therefore, all believers must ensure to take it as the highest standard to live by. That is, a good Christian is expected to reject any teaching or practice that contradicts what the Bible established.

For example, our society may portray its liberal view on homosexuality and declare it acceptable, which is not in compliance with Bible standards (Romans 1:24 -27; Mark 10:6-9).

A true believer must obey God’s law, even when the world has rejected it!

Jehovah will honor his children that obey his commandments, as he has preserved his best treasures for us in heaven.

In addition, Christians must understand that we have God’s backing as we make efforts to do his will. The Spirit of God is dwelling in us; no power can force us into subjection. Every Christian has dominion power; no need to yield to Satan’s pressure! (Matthew 18:18).

grace

Ask For Grace To Follow God’s Law Over Human Traditions

Dear Jesus Christ, I receive the power of God to reject heresy and uphold God’s righteousness. Please give me the strength to adopt your law and prioritize it above any human tradition. Let my step of faith leads to my blessing, and let me remain fit for your benefits in this life and in heaven also. Amen!

END TIME IS HERE; WHERE WILL YOU GO? – Revelation

end time

Be Watchful Of The Signs Of The End Time

(Passage: Revelation 13)

The words of Christ about the End Time is coming to fulfillment during our days! Everyone (especially Children of God) must watch out for the signs of the End Time that are already evident in our society.

According to the scriptures, during the End Time, Satan will delegate his agents to deceive many people and prepare them for the symbol of destruction notable as “666.”

Bible has warned that whosoever receives the antichrist mark of 666 will unable to enter heaven on the last day. The recipient of 666 will be doomed in hell fire.

The Bible stated,

So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.

Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world…”

The Bible also stated,

“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.

And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.

He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on the inner right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:4-8; 13:11-18).

 

666

 

The salvation of Jesus Helps One To Escape The Beast’s Mark 666

Most signs that Jesus Christ foretold as the signs of the End Time have been fulfilled. The people of this generation are the living witnesses of signs of the end of days!

Some signs that everyone can attest to have already fulfilled include the surge of false teachers, false prophets, pestilences, wars, and persecutions. (Read Matthew 24).

During the period of the end, Satan will be all over places deceiving and recruiting the insensitive people to his kingdom – Hell!

The enemy will manipulate his followers to receive and celebrate the evil mark of “666.”

Unfortunately, some believers may fall victim to Satan’s lies as the Bible stated in Revelation 13:4-8 and Revelation 13:11-18.

Many will follow the pathway of destruction, but some will keep their faith unto the end and be saved!

People who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and preserve their faith in him will qualify for heaven.

Confession of faith in Jesus is the only means of escaping the horror of hell!

A person who hasn’t confess Jesus as Lord runs the risk of becoming Satan’s victim and end up in hell.

Salvation through Jesus Christ is the only license for obtaining the gift of eternal life (with God in heaven).

Dear God, please save me from Satan and his antichrist agents who are out there preparing people for hell fire! Please help me to keep my confession of faith in Jesus Christ and maintain my stand as a faithful Christian.

Let your Holy Spirit empower me not to accept deceptive teachings that can lead me to hell fire.

Let your Spirit guide me into all truth so that I can ever be worthy of your eternal kingdom! For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

NO MATTER THE CHALLENGE, SPREAD THE GOSPEL – Acts

the gospel

Be Faithful & Steadfast In Spreading The Gospel Regardless Of Persecution

(Passage: Acts 16)

The people of Philippi mercilessly beat Paul and Silas and jailed them for preaching the gospel. But the incidents did not stop the duo from preaching the gospel!

Paul and Silas remained steadfast in the faith. They chose to praise God rather than complaining or getting discouraged.

God recognized the courage that Paul and Silas demonstrated, and therefore, remarkably delivered them, and also saved the chief prison guard.

The scripture reported,

“But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed” (Acts 16:25-26).

persecution

Gospel Evangelization Can’t Be Stopped By The Evil-Doers

Gospel evangelization is fueled by the Holy Spirit; no persecution can quench its fire. Evil people may persecute Christians for the sake of their belief, but they can’t succeed in silencing them.

No mortal man or woman can stop the gospel from spreading since it is the movement of God designed to save people from the last destruction!

Indeed, Christians are not ordinary people. We are empowered by God! We are endued with God’s grace and power to go extra miles for the kingdom of God.

The Holy Spirit that dwells in us will help us to triumph over any crisis that may come our way.

Having the clear understand that Christians are not ordinary people and cannot be stopped by any earthly force, we must be resolute in our confession of faith reserved in Jesus Christ.

God will back our ministries with signs and wonders to glorify his Holy Name.

Jesus Christ said,

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Pray For The Grace To Spread The Gospel Effectively

Dear God, please give me the grace to be steadfast in faith and effectively proclaim your gospel. Empower me through your Holy Spirit to preach the good news irresistibly! Let me remain steadfast in faith despite any challenge that may come my way.

…Give me the ability to preach your gospel in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Let me effectively preach your gospel so that people can know you and be saved. When my earthly race is finished, let me appear in your presence in heaven to hear your voice “Well-done and welcome my good servant!” For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

Christians: Be Vigilant And Prayerful To Overcome Satan’s Temptations

(Passage: Luke 6)

The Pharisees camouflage under their religion to criticize Jesus.

They were Jealous of Jesus’ ministry and would seize any opportunity to rage at him. The Pharisees did not relent in stalking Jesus all day long.

They were eager to find an excuse to criticize and demean his ministry.

The Bible reported some of the Pharisees’ actions,

“Now it happened on the second Sabbath after the first that He (Jesus) Went through the grain fields. And His disciples plucked the heads of grain and ate them, rubbing them in their hands.

…And some of the Pharisees said to them, “Why are you doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath?” The scripture also reported, “Now it happened on another Sabbath, also, that He entered the synagogue and taught.

…And a man was there whose right hand was withered. So the scribes and Pharisees watched Him closely, whether He would heal on the Sabbath, that they might find an accusation against Him” (Luke 6:6-7) (Luke 6:1-2).

The Footsteps of Jesus Will Help Us Overcome Satan’s Temptation

Satan loves to station his evil agents around the people of God in a bid to frustrate their efforts.

The enemies always focus on making attempts to derail believers from their pursuits of righteousness.

They do this by castigating their works and throwing every available stone at them while hoping one might stick.

Therefore, to overcome the enemy (the devil), Christians must be spiritually sensitive (watchful) and prayerful.

They must, also, be filled with the Holy Spirit always.

Meanwhile, believers must not forget that Satan’s intention is not just to discourage them from serving God only; his prime goals are to kill, steal, and destroy their salvation (according to John 10:10).

Hence, children of God must remain prayerful and watchful.

Christians should imbibe Jesus’ actions towards the opposition and react appropriately in all situations.

For example, when Satan instigated fury in the Pharisees to waylay Jesus, he did the following:

  • Jesus ignored the Pharisees – Believers should largely ignore their critics.
  • Jesus remained persistent in doing God’s business –Believers should never stop doing God’s will.
  • Jesus always withdrew to a silent place to pray for the renewal of his strengths after ministering –Believers must always refill and refresh their energy through prayers.
  • Jesus changed locations to avoid enemies’ distractions –Believers should diversify in ministry to outsmart their enemies.

…Also, let your Holy Spirit empower me to be watchful and prayerful so that I can keep prospering in all my activities. When my earthly race is over, let me appear in your presence in heaven to hear the word “well-done and welcome my servant to the joy of your Lord!” For in the name of Jesus Christ I have prayed.

BEWARE: THE LAST DAYS TRIBULATIONS ARE IMMINENT – Revelation

revelation

Do Away With Sin To Avoid Falling Into Tribulations

(Passage: Revelation 8)

Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God opened the seven seals in heaven, and the seventh seal unfolded the great tribulations that would befall earth inhabitants after the rapture.

The 7th seal has 7 trumpets that were blown separately. The 1st through 4th trumpets invoked great damages to the earth, to the extent that God’s angel bitterly lamented in heaven.

The scripture described,

“Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.

…And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!” (Revelation 8:12-13).

tribulations

Chances Are Still Available To Be Saved From Tribulations

In the last days, earth’s inhabitants will suffer greater tribulations than they have ever experienced from inception. God will shake the universe and prove his sovereignty over it.

The pro-end-time tribulations will cause the earth’s inhabitants to shudder in fear; however, God’s children would be shielded from the tribulations, because Jesus Christ would have raptured them to heaven.

Faithful followers of Jesus Christ would be with God in heaven, while those left would be stranded to suffer great tribulations with Satan.

Hence, it is important that everyone on earth repents and proclaim Christ as Lord – without wasting time – in order to escape the horrific event that is about to take place.

Since Christ will revisit the earth without prior notice, everyone (without exception) should grab any salvation moment that he or she may have to be saved. (Revelation 16:15).

judgement

Pray For Divine Help To Be Saved From The Tribulations

Dear God, please save me from the tribulations that the earth’s inhabitants are about to experience.

I want to be raptured before the horrific event takes place; therefore, I declare that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and he is the Savior of the world. He died for the sinners to save them.

…I thereby confess him (Jesus Christ) as my personal Lord and Savior. I give him my complete life, and I promise to faithfully serve him throughout the days of my life.

…Please let me remain qualified for your eternal home. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

OUR TRUST SHOULD BE ONLY IN GOD – Luke

trust

Christians Must Absolutely Trust God Only; Humans Are Fallible

(Passage: Luke 22)

Christians must understand that the only reliable and trust-worthy being is the Supreme God.

He is the only one that truly cares for you and won’t let you down in times of trouble.

The bible makes us understand that the heart of a man is deceitful and desperately wicked.

Judas Iscariot released himself for the devil’s use; he betrayed Jesus Christ with a kiss.

It is reported,

“And while He was still speaking, behold, a multitude; and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them and drew near to Jesus to kiss Him. But Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?” (Luke 22:47-48).

Human May Fail But God Never Fails

If a close associate like Judas Iscariot could betray Jesus Christ, who else should we trust? (Luke 22:47-48).

It is obvious that our present world has a problem with “Trust.” The world is full of hate and rage; acts of self-centeredness have dominated it from every side!

However, the followers of Jesus Christ still have hope in this present world; we have God’s love that prevails over evil!

We can still look up to God and some fellow believers. Meanwhile, no believer is expected to place absolute trust in a fellow human being.

Complete and absolute trust must be placed in God who remains infallible. God never fails even when people fail us.

A fellow human being may disappoint us, but God will never do!


Pray For Grace To Have Absolute Trust In God

Dear God, please help me to place my absolute faith in you. Help me to love people, but let my absolute trust be placed on you. Let me look up to you for all my needs. I understand and believe that you will send me the necessary people to meet my needs at all times.

…Let my absolute trust be reserved in you at all times so that I can live successfully and happily on earth. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.

JESUS DIED FOR FREEDOM – Romans

God Sacrificed His Son For Our Freedom In All Aspects Of Life

Passage: Romans 8

No Christian is expected to live in condemnation after Jesus Christ has set him or her free.

He came to free us from sin through His atoning sacrifice. He paid the death penalty for us, freeing us from death row through His Sacrifice.

Anyone in Christ is no more under the bondage of sin; for who the Son has set free is free indeed. The scripture stated,

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

…For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit” (Romans 8:1-4).

free in Jesus

All Christians Are Free Of Sin Once They Accept Christ

Believers in Jesus Christ are not under the bondage of sin and condemnation, but we have been freed to enjoy the salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We are no more expected to live in condemnation after we have been saved and received forgiveness of sin.

We are now bonafide Christians qualified to receive God’s benefits through Jesus Christ!

However, Satan the enemy of righteousness has a custom of tempting God’s children into unjust condemnation. He may remind a Christian of his/her past sins after forgiveness.

Meanwhile, if Christ has set us free, we are free indeed! Since we have been born-again in Jesus, we must claim his justification.

Having said all, any Christian who is tempted to remain sad in a forgiven sin must resist the enemy outrightly.

He (or she) must affirm his stands in God by saying,

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death…” (Romans 8:1-4).


Prayer of Grace

 

Proclaim Freedom from Sin Through Jesus Christ

In the name of Jesus Christ, I am free of condemnation of sin. Jesus Christ has paid the penalty of my sins on the cross. He has washed me clean and made me fit for his kingdom.

…Since I have confessed and repented of my sins, I am no more under the bondage of sin, and neither does the condemnation of sin have power over me anymore.

…Jesus Christ has made me free today, tomorrow, and forever! Hallelujah, I am heaven-bound, and Christ will be my king forever. Amen!

CHRISTIANITY DEMANDS ABSOLUTE FOCUS ON GOD – 2 Peter

focus

Christians Must Remain Focused In Their Religious Acts

Passage: 2 Peter 1

Christians are called to live uprightly with God and shun pretense. Many struggle with so many things, while being weighed down by life’s trials.

If you would just focus on God, you would understand that these are just so little compared to the Almighty God we serve.

All He wants is that you make Him your point of focus and rely solely on Him. We must keep a genuine relationship with Him at all times. The scripture stated,

“But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love…

…For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:5-8).

brotherly kindness

God’s Blessings For Focused Christians Are Unlimited

Believers must have focus and cautiously practice their faith to remain worthy of God’s benefits.

The Creator reserves his eternal benefits for those who portray godly virtues.

The virtues that we must display include, but are not limited to self-control, perseverance, kindness, and love. Christians must be loyal to God and represent him well on earth.

Our practices must promote God’s name and bear good fruits of his kingdom.

Anyone who represents God well on earth with his or her godly practices will receive his blessing beyond human imaginations.

Pray For God’s Perfect Grace To Focus

Dear God, please help me to live a life that is relevant to your kingdom. Help me to bear positive fruits of your kingdom…
