Matthew 24:5-12 says: “For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilen-ces, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of so-rrows…..”
No one should doubt the certainty of the facts that we are in the very last days and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to rapture the saints is at hand. The reasons been that all the biblical pro-phesies are almost fulfill-ed or are being fulfilled in our very own eyes.
Today, nations are fight-ing against nations, the level of hatred among the brethren are on the incr-ease, economic recess-ion is a common experien-ce in almost every coun-try, famines and pestilen-ces are everywhere and lots of evils are going on which shows clearly that the coming of our Lord Je-sus is at hand. The strong-est and loudest edge of persecution has been turned against believers and the ministers of God.
In fact from all indices, the only prophecy that is remaining to take place now is the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, when the saints will be rap-ture. And if that is the ca-se, there is need for all be-lievers to prepare for the event as nobody knows the time when it will be. We shall have no warning of His immediate approach or be foretold by any sign.
I Thessalonia 5: 2 -3 says: “For yourselves know per-fectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safe-ty; then sudden destruct-ion cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”
The coming of the Lord or the day of each in-dividual’s death is only known by the Father of all creatures. No one knows the time. It is God’s will that men should live in co-nstant preparation for it. Although, there have been computations for the pur-pose of fixing the exact date when these will ha-ppen but they have all been vain and profitless.
Everyone needed to be informed of this great event which is the next item in God’s program-me. We need to prepare and that is why this message is very necess-ary. Everybody should be aware of this great event and not to be ignorant of it.
Revelation 1:3 say,
“Blessed is he that read-eth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”
The time of rapture, the time of our Lord Jesus second coming is at hand and be ready so that it will not take you unaware, for we are in the end time.
We cannot behave any-how, because anything can happen at any mo-ment or the trumpet can sound and if we are not watchful and strengthen our relationship with the Lord, we will not make it at last.
But God forbid.
