Hello folks, I pray that all are saved by the Grace of God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Amen
Are you a Christian? If so, do you believe in the rapture of the church? If you do, then you either believe in pre-trib, mid-trib, or a post-tribulation rapture.
But, I say, what difference does it really make? It doesn’t. Sure, I believe in a pre-tribulation rapture of the church. I get many comments telling me that I am wrong, and that I will not be ready for what is to come (ie, the “Tribulation Period”). I say “Hogwash”.
Jesus doesn’t tell us to be ready for the rapture or the tribulation period. He tells us to always be ready. We should not only be ready for what is coming and for the return of the Lord, but also for daily life and battles with evil spirits. We need to be wearing the “full” armor of God.
He commands us to follow him daily. This is what is important. To do his will while we are physically alive on this Earth.
Trying to prove another Christian wrong regarding this subject is foolish. We are Christians. We should love each other like Christians should, and stop condemning one another. We need to be doing the will of the Father. Spreading the gospel throughout the world. Shining our light in a world of darkness. Showing love and compassion to the lost. These are the things that matter. These are the things that God has commanded us to do. Not trying to prove each other wrong about the rapture of the church.
Time is so very short. Let us pray for salvation of the unbelievers. Plant the seeds of righteousness in the hearts and souls of the lost.
How will you answer to Jesus when he asks you: “Have you spent your time on Earth well?” “Did you do as I have commanded you to do?”
Ask yourself this question: “Is God pleased with the way I am living my life as a Christian?”
God Bless You All! Maranatha
Exclusive: Greg Laurie has 3 principles for discovering His purpose
I have been a Christian since 1970. I wish I could say that after all these years of walking with God, I have discovered the foolproof, one-two-three plan whereby I can know the will of God in every situation. Unfortunately, I don’t have this plan. Such a plan does not exist.
I, like any other Christian, have often found myself stumbling into the will of God. There have been times when God has spoken to my heart, I have made a move, and it has been what he wanted me to do. There have been other times when I have been wandering through life, doing whatever I do, and I end up right in the middle of God’s perfect plan. I don’t know that we can always have a guaranteed, foolproof method of knowing his plan in every situation. But I do think there are steps we can take to prepare our hearts to more effectively know his will.
