rapture presentation places in heaven
Mansions and places to live in heaven some visions
God at church service on December 11th showed me by a vision some of the places in vision, and also as He wants me to share this information to people. Here again is a vision where I was shown a room in heaven:
I had been getting messages from the Holy Spirit this month but in the last few days nothing new had come but now on the early morning of November 30, 2013 I fell back again to sleep in my bed here in Tennessee, and had a very vivid dream which may have turned into a visit of heaven, in order to receive a message to deliver, which I am doing so here. At first it started as one of my many personal flying dreams that I have had over the years where I was flying low above the ground, as in the case before I needed to stay low to avoid hitting power lines which lay across my flight path that I was taking in the dream. I wanted to fly higher in the dream so I slowly ascended getting closer and closer to these lines, barely missing the last ones. Then, all of the sudden, I saw a large cross shaped opening in the clouds in the sky and immediately decided then to fly straight at that. I did that for a brief bit when all of the sudden the scene completely changed and I found myself lying down on a HUGE bed in a huge open room with a big window with daylight coming in opposite the bed. I did not see much other furniture and could not tell if the room had lights (it was not lit by artificial lighting). The room had a very deep and profound sense of peace in it, more so than any earthy room. I was then told to do and relate the following: Continue to warn and inform people of the coming rapture as you have been doing, which is coming very, very soon, sooner than many people (here?) can imagine. He also told me in this dream (heaven visit?) that many people are NOT at all ready for this rapture and need to get ready for the rapture ASAP or risk missing this coming rapture and being left behind to face the tribulation period which will follow the rapture. I then felt another’s presence on the huge bed but was totally at peace with it. When it was time for it to end I felt like I came back into my own body perhaps taken by an angel, which makes me wonder if during my dream I was taken up into heaven to receive this message by a simulation of the rapture for it does say in the word
(1 Thessalonians 4:17) 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.
Although this was a personal rapture if that was really what it was, to receive a message from Jesus to deliver to those online, and this is what I am doing here now. I urge you all to make yourselves ready, prayerfully asking the Holy Spirit if there is anything, anything at all that will keep you from making this rapture and also a complete sense of peace of you are ready to go in this rapture, or a strong sense of uneasiness if not, asking for what must be done and the power to accomplish whatever it is that needs to be done (such as repenting of things) so in order to make the rapture. Continue to live as though the rapture will happen today for Jesus does promise to come as a thief in the night when He does come. This is hard for me too, as I like to plan myself as well, but live life as though this is your very last day, not just for the fact that death can claim you, but, although I am not prophesying the date here, and do not want to, I do feel strongly led to believe as I type this that the rapture could be any day at any time so you must be ready for it to come without any warning at all. What a glorious day it will be for those who are indeed ready to go in the rapture then for then they will spend the next seven plus years in heaven while those who miss the rapture will then have to deal with the chaos on the earth immediately after the rapture happens and then at some point the seven year tribulation period which will be more terrible than any can imagine. I will close this message of again to warn you that the rapture is indeed imminent and to ask you if you are indeed ready to go when Jesus splits the eastern sky with a shot, the voice of the archangel and the trump of God. As stated in 1 Corinthians 15 it will be so sudden you will NOT have time to repent then and be taken in it, so I URGE you to be ready for it NOW, repenting and doing all that the Holy Spirit instructs you to do (if anything) to be ready and do not count on tomorrow, either for it may not come
At church the Lord then confirmed this above dream and the message in it but showed me the rest of the place which the mansion was attached. I will describe the place now. The building was a single story motel like thing like the men’s lodge I am staying in now for New Life, only it was 20 times bigger with all of its dimensions, meaning that the building was several thousand feet long! and the sidewalk was big with huge Roman columns everywhere. There also was a huge open area surrounding this mansion, with all manner of fruits suited for the owner of this place – bananas, strawberries, blackberries and so on, all catered to the owner’s heart’s desires- and the inside was the like. All of the rooms in the place were vast, too, on a huge scale and no expenses spared in any degree. The place, if it were possible to build on earth would cost trillions of dollars to build, or more. I say this because God loves each and every one of us not to spare expenses. There also was a mansion like the woman’s maternity home but that too on a much vaster scale and one that would put the great Gatsby mansion to shame in comparison, at least with what it had (the mansion may have been close to size with it, however). Again the owner’s hearts desires were on the inside and out of this mansion, too. I will note that there were some single room efficiencies and smaller places for those who did not get any or many rewards, again with no expenses spared and vastly nicer than anything on earth, but these are for those who had wood, hay and stubble and found their efforts consumed when tried by the fire (1 Corinthians 3). There also were some efficiencies as big as a supermarket or department store too! These large ones indicated that their owners “got it” and did good works before they died so their efficiency was continually expanded and expanded to honor them. The bible says we are saved by grace and not works but also faith without works is dead. The place that you live is a reward for good work here on earth before the rapture/you die, whichever comes first, one surely will (I am believing in a soon to come rapture myself). I place these up here to encourage diligence in what you do for God because God WILL reward you for your service, giving to church, the poor, teaching, anything you do for Him, at all and following your calling. Other rewards will reflect what is inside or outside your place and what you wear and so on. I do want to stress that even the small efficiencies in heaven would cost billions in the earth, and the biggest mansions in heaven are far bigger than anything on the earth similar, and some go as big an entire shopping mall. God does not hold ANYTHING back in heaven for His saints who love Him and whom He loves and wants to lavish His love on Him in so many wonderful ways. . The Lord wants me to post this on the categories of places and how many rooms the may have, stating this is still valid, though with the caveat- do not literally hold to the number of rooms in the categories for one vast room could be the same as thirty smaller rooms, for these places and mansions are given by the grace of God alone but reflective also of works done on earth by the person to whom God is giving these places to live and what is inside of them:
Category 1. Single to three room efficiency/apartment/condo:
These are those who did little for God, gave little in the way of tithes or offerings, did not win many to God and or what they works they did were of a wrongful, fleshy and or a selfish motivation and done by their own personal strength rather than God’s . These people all got saved by the grace of God but will have little to nothing to show for their Christian walk here on this earth for the above reasons, or also the rapture happened (or they died) just after they came to the saving knowledge of Christ and as such did not have any time to do good works. They will at first before God wipes away their tears and gives them happiness, bemoan the fact that they could have done much, much more for the kingdom of God. I share this to encourage people to do more for the kingdom and as such increase your rewards with God. However, of course, the greatest reward of all from God will just be in the presence of Jesus for all eternity and His perfect love, which applies to all five categories. I share these categories to encourage people to do good deeds with pure motives while there still is time before the rapture with the goal of advancing one or more categories, repenting of all fleshly and wrong deeds as the Holy Spirit gives conviction for them, and committing to do things with the motive of love. I want people to be of category 3 and up, higher is better
Category 2. four to eight room house, condo or apartment. These have done more than the first category perhaps with a bit purer motives so God will give them this housing and maybe they will win a crown or so (which will be thrown at Jesus feet, of course). They will also however also regret that they too could have done more with their walk if they had made better decisions in their life. Again, God also will wipe their tears away and they will be happy but still they also will have fallen short of their full potential of rewards for service and works. They too will though enjoy being with Jesus which as stated is the greatest reward for being raptured. Still I encourage as before to do more works with love and a pure motive and not with fleshly selfish motivations (or they would be higher than this category) to try to get a better category- I do this in love wanting the best for people and that they get really blessed by God. Some may be in this category too because they did not have enough time to mature to do good works in a pure motivation so as to increase their category further. I am thinking most martyrs will get category 3 (as God loves the ultimate sacrifice) as well as those who are the most successful at mortifying the deeds of the flesh and living Holy, the will be category 3 plus and win the crown of righteousness, for as God is Holy He loves Holiness in His people and a lack of fleshly deeds. Many in category 1 and 2 will be there due to too many fleshly works so ask God for help in dying to the flesh while there is time.
Category 3. nine to sixteen room house or large apartment These people will have done more for God still, and God will reward them nicely for their wonderful service with a nice place, in the form of a large house to spend the rapture, millennial kingdom. They could have done more still but this will be nice, and have some small grounds and gardens for the person with trees and other nice things. They likely will win a crown or two and will have some supportive role in helping Jesus rule in the millennial kingdom. These will have done deeds with a largely pure motive but some too will still have been done with fleshly selfish motives or they may have gotten a category 4 or even 5 for what they did. Some may not have had the time and this may be the best. It is still a good category or level to be in, but I challenge readers to go for the best and do things in love (give, teach, missions, serving and so on, as their calling and the Spirit dictate).
Category 4. seventeen to thirty room large house small mansion These large homes are for people who have done wonderful service for God. Many also will have larger grounds too with all sorts of nice trees, gardens and more, to bless the person to which it has been given to by grace. These will have likely two or three crowns which will again be thrown to the feet of Jesus in adoration and worship, knowing that they could not have been won without Him. Most of their deeds will have been done with a pure heart but there may be a few good deeds done with fleshly motives but that will decrease as the rewards increase as God will not reward or bless good deeds done with fleshly selfish motives, but likely will rebuke that, as he did with Howard Pittman. Again here I stress the point that the motive of the deed is more important than the deed itself, and it may be better to do nothing than to do something with a selfish motivation. The people in this group will have an increased role in the millennial kingdom too.
I will also add that some of the carnal Christians who might miss the rapture due to being lukewarm or having left their first love and been carnal or whatever other reasons will repent of their wrongs too, that kept them from the rapture and then make up for it and then end up in category 3, 4 or 5 after being martyred by the antichrist for their services to God and more (as well as their martyrdom) while some who barely make the rapture will be in categories one and two. This also applies to those who get saved post-rapture and get really on fire for the Lord before they get martyred and do much good too. These are my own feelings but they are backed up to some degree by scripture especially in Revelation (chapters 5,7,20 and so on). Personally I’d rather make the rapture and be a category 1 or two than miss it and take my chances of being tempted to take the mark of the beast (DO NOT DO IT AT ALL COSTS) and ending in the lake of fire for eternity. I am certain the devil will try to say God has rejected them to those left behind and otherwise make attempts to make the lukewarm fall away completely and take the mark and help the antichrist by building up bitterness against God in those left behind.
Category 5 thirty one rooms and up- mansions in some cases vast ones of hundreds of rooms all of them different according to a person’s wishes, and more. This is the category to strive for above all, as these are the most loving and selfless people you will find, being happy and doing all to the glory of God with His strength . These in this category have gone with God’s strength and wisdom to their full potential doing service, winning many souls for God, doing much teaching, giving a lot, missionary work, even suffering for their faith with sacrifices up to and including martyrdom, and so on, and all with a pure loving motive of heart, and not doing things of fleshly selfish motives, having died to the deeds and demands of the flesh successfully. Some of these mansions will be so vast as to make Gatsby’s in the movie seem like an efficiency by comparison. Many people of this category will have been martyred for their faith, too. These will also have a good role helping Jesus during the millennial reign and eternity. Likely these will win multiple crowns, some even all five offered for their service, which they will joyfully cast these at the Lord’s feet. There will be the least regret in this group over not reaching full potential, for these will be close to or at their full potential.
Here is some more on another vision I had last night on the marriage supper with scriptures on the marriage supper
Last night at church I was given visions that happened at church service last night which was all worship, because the presence of the Lord was SO strong there. I myself saw the Lord about to tell the angel to blow the trump signal for the rapture holding it in his hand even and wanting His Son to come out and get His children. The Father Himself told me He was sick and tired of the EVIL going on in earth and wants to bring the believers home to heaven and do the tribulation time. Jesus again was pleading for mercy, bleeding anew, pleading for the lost, especially in the unreached countries (please pray for those ALL to be reached) again stating His death was NOT in vain, despite the evil of the world at current. This was intended to reinforce the following message on facebook I saw in September
Urgent Christ is Coming Soon to Rapture His bride!
The second week of September 2013, a pastor was driving his car traveling, and saw an old man walking on the road, he decided to give him a lift in the car. While traveling the old man told the pastor, "Son you know what happened last night in heaven?" The pastor got scared and quickly stopped the car and asked, " Sir are you okay, how did you obtain information from heaven?" The old man said, "Last night in heaven God was very angry against man and He told the angels to sound the trumpets and when they were going to begin to sound the trumpets was when Jesus prostrated before God and began to plead with tears in His eyes. Then fresh blood started coming out of his hands and body. Christ told God to have mercy, for His death was not in vain. When God, seeing His son and seeing the pain of His saints and also the wickedness of the wicked, God said, " IM GIVING THEM ONE LAST CHANCE." Jesus returned to the angels and told them that a great number of angels were to rush all over the world and tell the world that THE END IS NEAR and that JESUS IS COMING SOON." The pastor asked wiping his tears, " How do you know all this? " The old man replied, " I am one of the angels that were sent into the world," And went on to say the pastor, " Please use all means of communication and send this message, there is no time to lose." And the old man disappeared. To summarize it, this story is real, Christ is coming soon. Please save a soul today and make sure you are rapture ready for the above makes me feel that the rapture is really drawing close, though I am by NO MEANS prophesying an exact date, but I encourage you to seek the Lord in prayer to be ready as if it is going to be immediately occurring. I am sharing this with you all in love, not wishing any should miss the coming rapture!
Much the same thing is going on now in Heaven as is going on then but I sense the day of Jesus’ coming is drawing nearer and nearer. Whether or not there will be a big revival in the US or not or in the west- or maybe it has already started especially abroad, there are no guarantee that it will happen or last, for the Lord is coming back and sooner than many may expect. The Lord then showed me how the Lamb’s supper of the Lamb is prepared and ready and waiting for His children as shown me in another dream and many mansions ready too all for the coming rapture of the church. Here is more, including scripture on the Marriage supper of the lamb
Early this morning I saw a dream/vision of the room of the marriage supper of the lamb. It was a vast and huge room where there were tables literally as far as the eye could see in all directions, and I saw another vision of this at the church service on the 11th of December . The lighting was subdued and subtle like a very fine dining restaurant but there was an area that was significantly brighter, presumably where the Groom (Jesus) will be. After I awoke from sleep I was told to convey the message that this dining area IS READY NOW for the bride to appear, and the vision further reinforced this message of the fact all is ready, as several other prophets have seen, as well. The messages means unmistakably the rapture will be sooner than later so be ready for it. I am now going to present scriptures which will show the marriage supper of the lamb in the bible. First are three parables in the gospels which allude to the wedding supper, and then is the actual supper in Revelation 19.
The first of these parables that Jesus spoke on this and that I am sharing here is in Luke chapter 14 where that the people were initially invited all made excuses to be released from the supper and then the Lord had them go out and get guests for it (the gentiles) and stated that none of those initially bidden were worthy to taste His supper- wake up people!
(Luke 14:15) And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
(Luke 14:16) Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
(Luke 14:17) And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
(Luke 14:18) And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
(Luke 14:19) And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
(Luke 14:20) And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
(Luke 14:21) So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
(Luke 14:22) And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
(Luke 14:23) And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
(Luke 14:24) For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
Here is a very similar parable which is in Matthew chapter 22, with a very similar warning message to us, except there is one man who came to the wedding supper without a proper garment who is then as a result of not having the proper dress cast into outer darkness so beware of that too, and be thankful to be ready for this supper, the marriage supper of the lamb
(Matthew 22:1) And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
(Matthew 22:2) The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
(Matthew 22:3) And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
(Matthew 22:4) Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
(Matthew 22:5) But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
(Matthew 22:6) And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
(Matthew 22:7) But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
(Matthew 22:8) Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
(Matthew 22:9) Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
(Matthew 22:10) So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
(Matthew 22:11) And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
(Matthew 22:12) And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
(Matthew 22:13) Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
(Matthew 22:14) For many are called, but few are chosen.
Here is the parable of the ten virgins in Matthew chapter 25 which also alludes to the marriage supper of the Lamb and is given as a warning to the bride to be ready for it and the rapture as five of the virgins were not ready- these five foolish virgins no extra oil with them unlike the wise ones, had to get more oil and as such were left out, not making it back in time for when Jesus came back for the supper. PLEASE do not be one of those five foolish virgins, but be one of the five wise virgins who had the spare oil and were ready to meet the bridegroom when He came.
(Matthew 25:1) Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
(Matthew 25:2) And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
(Matthew 25:3) They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
(Matthew 25:4) But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
(Matthew 25:5) While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
(Matthew 25:6) And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
(Matthew 25:7) Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
(Matthew 25:8) And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
(Matthew 25:9) But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
(Matthew 25:10) And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
(Matthew 25:11) Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
(Matthew 25:12) But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
(Matthew 25:13) Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Here is the actual marriage supper of the lamb and worship seemingly before or during it, as related in the book of Revelation chapter 19 verses 5 through 9
(Revelation 19:5) And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
(Revelation 19:6) And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
(Revelation 19:7) Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
(Revelation 19:8) And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
(Revelation 19:9) And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
On the evening of November 23, 2013 at my place in Cleveland Tennessee, I was looking at this e-book heaven the great adventure and now realized that the dreams that I have had for years and years even long before I really committed my life to the Lord may have been actual visions of heaven and me there. I have had very many dreams while sleeping and daydreams, too where I would literally flap my arms at my sides when I was standing in the dream, and then literally shoot up off the ground and go flying somewhere, either generally or to some specific destination, sometimes at fairly low altitude of a few hundred feet or less above the ground, sometimes at much high altitude of many thousands of feet, sometimes slow and sometimes very, very fast, supersonic speeds. Many of these dreams were centered on my homeland of Pennsylvania but some of these flying dreams went for great distances, across states, countries, sometimes off the planet into outer space itself. When I had these numerous dreams I always dismissed these dreams that I have received probably many times hundreds of times preemptively as wild fantasies of my own imagination and forgetting them and about them until I have another and then doing the same thing each and every time I had one, never sharing them when I awoke in the morning with other people at all, but now I am beginning to reconsider the fact that I had previously dismissed and forgotten these repeatedly recurring dreams. After all why would I get such a dream happening over and over again for months and years no matter where I am living at the time? They aren’t exactly the same but they did have the theme of flying in them- my own flying that is without being in any plane etc. I am now wondering if the Lord was trying to use these dreams communicate with me, and myself having missed it all along until now (I an thankful for His patience on that matter) and the Lord is now asking me to share these dreams with you all. I now feel that people will be able to fly just like I did during my dreams and whenever they desire while they are in heaven and likely during the new earth time period after they are created new (Revelation 21). I am pointing this out because the Holy Spirit wants to let you know that the rapture is coming very soon and when it does ALL those who follow Jesus will go to heaven for the time following the rapture all the way up to the time for the return for the battle of Armageddon. I am not sure if this will be possible during the millennial kingdom afterward but I feel more likely it will be after the city of New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven to earth and this flying will enable one to get around that vast city, and indeed be a perfect way of getting around that city, which is a perfect cube of a massive 12,000 furlongs of length, width and height(Revelation 21)
I am sharing this as a way of encouragement in the hopes that you would use it to draw ever closer to Jesus as the day approaches so you can make the rapture and not be left behind to face the horrors of the tribulation period. I am now including a presentation filled with prophecies of the rapture to help you do this, for it is not my wish that any miss the rapture and face the tribulation period, and neither is it God’s:
On the early morning of November 22, 2013 the Lord again spoke to me speaking of the coming rapture and giving me four categories of people. I am going to list them for you now in the hopes that people- even just one will wake up, get saved or repent and be ready, and for those ready to do even more for the Lord in these very rapidly waning days before the rapture.
Category 1. These people won’t make the rapture because they are not saved, they are either unsaved, living in the west or an unreached country in Asia/India. Also many people are either too lukewarm to make it or too caught up in the cares of the world so as have lost their first love. These last two subgroups need to repent and put the Lord first with all passion. There are far, far too many people in the world and I am led to believe it is for the sake of this big group which could be up to 98 percent of the world’s population that the Lord is tarrying, hoping fervently that some can be won. If you care in this category either pray to know Jesus today for all who call in the Name of the Lord will be saved, and/or repent of any lukewarm things in your life and come back to Christ, making Him your first priority over all the cares of the world. Below are the relevant scriptures dealing with the churches in Ephesus and Laodicea in revelation
First up is the passage of scripture relating to losing the first love in Revelation chapter 2, this written to the Ephesian church- again any convicted here please repent now:
(Revelation 2:1) Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
(Revelation 2:2) I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
(Revelation 2:3) And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
(Revelation 2:4) Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
(Revelation 2:5) Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
(Revelation 2:6) But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
(Revelation 2:7) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
The other scripture passage of warning is the one written to the church at Laodicea who were lukewarm. As with then, Jesus does not put up with lukewarm believers and I urge any and all who are lukewarm or even questionable to pray for conviction now from the Holy Spirit and repent and be on fire for God. Those who are lukewarm will find themselves either missing the rapture entirely or being taken and then literally spewed or spit out of the rapture as it is taking place. The way the scripture seems to read in Revelation 3:16 I would not be surprised if it is the latter being spewed out of the rapture so beware!! I will do what I can to keep my passion for I don’t want to miss the rapture or I think worse be spit out of it as it takes place! Again I say repent now!
(Revelation 3:14) And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
(Revelation 3:15) I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
(Revelation 3:16) So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
(Revelation 3:17) Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
(Revelation 3:18) I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
(Revelation 3:19) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
(Revelation 3:20) Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
(Revelation 3:21) To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
(Revelation 3:22) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
I urge you again to repent. The passage below deals with those who are going to make the rapture. In many ways it will be as if you had died when the rapture takes place in as far as everyone WILL appear before the judgment seat of Christ alone at some point to give an account for what they did with their lives. I am backing this up with scripture.
This is first spoken of in Romans chapter 14 where it also warns people NOT to judge one another (not hard to do, repent if so, I repent too as needed) and that we will all stand at the judgment seat of Christ to give account of ourselves
(Romans 14:9) For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
(Romans 14:10) But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
(Romans 14:11) For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
(Romans 14:12) So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
(Romans 14:13) Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
This message of needing to give account for ourselves is again repeated here in 2 Corinthians chapter 5, where the fear of the Lord is also stated
(2 Corinthians 5:9) Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
(2 Corinthians 5:10) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
(2 Corinthians 5:11) Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
We must be mindful of what we do and what motives we do for all of our works will be tested by fire as stated in 1 Corinthians chapter 3, at the judgment seat of Christ to see what type of works they are, be they good works done in a good motive which leave precious jewels, gold and silver, or wood, hay and stubble(the ones which surviving the test will receive rewards) and I will discuss what happens there below.
(1 Corinthians 3:11) For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
(1 Corinthians 3:12) Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
(1 Corinthians 3:13) Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
(1 Corinthians 3:14) If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
(1 Corinthians 3:15) If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
Type 2 of person- taken in the rapture but receive no rewards. They did make the rapture but find that they have no rewards waiting for them in heaven. I hope this is not the case but I sense that many if not most who make the rapture may well fall into this category. Either they do little, or more likely they find their works burnt up at the judgment seat but they themselves saved by fire (verse 15, above). This group will definitely face regret at having not done a lot more for the Lord but of course the Lord will wipe away all of their tears. They will be in heaven with the Lord and in ways that is all that matters but it could have been much more for them. It is, however, not too late to do good works though until the rapture to find rewards and all. But as expressed in these 3 verses in 1 Corinthians, that love is the key motive and things not done in love (charity) will not profit you a thing.
(1 Corinthians 13:1) Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
(1 Corinthians 13:2) And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
(1 Corinthians 13:3) And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Please do right works with the right motive.
Category 3- some rewards given. These are those who do indeed get some rewards for good works given, but not all they could have been given. Of the two remaining categories raptured, this will be bigger and perhaps by far. These will have nicer housing than category 2, and find maybe one or two crowns coming their way for service and the Lord will entrust them with helping Him some degree with the millennial kingdom and beyond, but it won’t be what it could have been had they been more diligent and/or done things with a purer motive so there will be some regret too with the group.
Category 4- Many rewards given them by the Lord at the judgment seat. These people, which will be by far the smallest group, sadly, of those making the rapture, will get the biggest rewards for their service will be with the right motive, out of love for the Lord and their neighbor. These will receive crowns, three or more, a large place to dwell, and will help the Lord rule and reign in a big way in the coming Kingdom. These are the people who do their best to do everything that they can do to please the Lord
Here is a scenario listing five types of people at the end times and the rapture
I sense this morning that there will be five kinds of people in these end times period
type 1 Those on whom are ready for the rapture and indeed go in the rapture. These are NOT lukewarm and have NOT lost their first love, heeding all of the warnings of the end times. I fervently pray there are many of these and that this warning text will increase their numbers even more. I have no wish to see ANY miss the rapture for any reason at all. I will add a salvation prayer too. I pray you read this in time to be taken in the rapture but even if not you can still be saved.
Type 2 those who miss the rapture but repent afterwards of the sins, lukewarmness and backslidings and are likely to be martyred by the antichrist during the tribulation period. These are the groups of people spoken of in Revelation chapter 5 and 7, perhaps, especially chapter 7. At the rapture these will have left their first love and or have been found to be too lukewarm to be taken in the rapture. These will almost certainly receive the crown of life. I urge readers of this before the rapture to repent NOW so as not to be a part of this group but group 1!!
Type 3 those who are NOT saved now but DO get saved after the rapture. If you are reading this after the rapture and fall into this type or even type 2 know there is hope for you, if you repent NOW of your sins! It will almost certainly cost your life but that is far better than to be hard and take the mark of the beast and be in hell forever. To be saved and a part of this group or if read in time to be a part of group 1 please pray this prayer with me
Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness. I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin. You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess Jesus as our Lord and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we will be saved. Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved. Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself. Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
Now that you are saved then take time to read the bible, especially the end times chapters with the Lord. These include Daniel, Matthew 24, 25, Mark 13, Luke 12,17, 21, and especially the book of Revelation. Pray fervently to the Lord for Revelation of these and other scriptures and just a good relationship with Him. I also recommend seeking the baptism of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues- that has been a real blessing for me personally.
I will go over the last two types briefly for it is NOT my wish for ANY to be in them at all but I know there will be people who will be. Type 4 is someone who is not ready for the rapture, like type 2, with the same issues but instead of repenting gets mad at God and hardens, falling completely away from the faith, probably helping persecuting the Christians. Type 5 is the like, an unsaved hardened soul who refuses to repent no matter what, who takes the mark and sides with the Antichrist openly. Types 4 and 5 are those who are described in Revelation in chapters 9 and 16 as those who refuse to repent for all the judgments whose end will certainly be the lake of fire.
Please, please, do NOT let your hearts harden when the times come. Of course that is Satan our enemies goal, but I want all to be saved and not go to hell or through the tribulation period.
I am closing this presentation on dreams and the rapture now with more information and a warning on the rapture so you can be ready.
ARE ALL CHRISTIANS GOING IN THE RAPTURE???
ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE READY???
This seems to be one of the hot topics on 5 Doves recently, so I feel it is time that I forward one of my tracts that I wrote about 12 years ago, with several hundred thousand in circulation. For those of you who believe that ALL Christians will be taken in the Rapture, I hope and pray that you are right. On the other hand, if one believes that way, and feels no need to change his backslidden, lukewarm, compromising, unwatchful, worldly, or fence-straddling ways, WOE BE UNTO HIM, if he suddenly finds the Rapture happened and he was left behind.
Isn't it much safer to get as close to the Lord as we can in these VERY LAST DAYS? Is there any negative in doing that??? It is much safer and wiser to believe that all Christians are NOT going in the Rapture. Not only safer and wiser, but I believe MORE SCRIPTURAL, also. Following is the tract that I wrote:
Are All Christians going in the Rapture? If, at some point in your life, you have asked Jesus Christ into your life to become your personal Lord and Saviour, does this GUARANTEE that you are going in the Rapture? All signs point to the END OF THE AGE VERY SOON, SO THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION YOU COULD ASK YOURSELF IS, "AM I READY FOR THE RAPTURE?"
Before we go any further, let's clarify what the RAPTURE is. I Thessalonians 4:16-17 says, "For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain will 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."
The Rapture is the GREAT ESCAPE from the horrendous Tribulation period that is SOON to come on ALL THE WORLD! It is for a body of born-again believers in Jesus Christ. The question is IS THE RAPTURE FOR ALL CHRISTIANS?
It is probably safe to say that a majority of Chlristians reading this tract would say "YES". We are NOT addressing the issue of salvation, or "once saved, always saved," or "eternal security". For those of you who answered "Yes", CAN YOU FIND EVEN ONE SCRIPTURE THAT GUARANTEES THAT ALL CHRISTIANS ARE GOING IN THE RAPTURE? Scripture points to the fact that all will NOT be making it to the rapture.
Just because you have always believed something, or your Pastor believes it, or your church teaches it, DOES NOT MAKE IT TRUE! IT MUST BE BASED ON THE WORD OF GOD! It is our fervent desire that ALL CHRISTIANS are going in the Rapture. If ALL CHRISTIANS are going in the Rapture, we have lost nothing by drawing closer to the Lord to prepare for His Soon Return. If, on the other hand, we have a false sense of security regarding our readiness for the Rapture, and we ignore the Lord's warnings to GET OUR HEARTS RIGHT WITH HIM BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE, we have a TREMENDOUS amount to lose. Just read the Book of Revelation!
"Lord, your Word is awesome. Lord, your Word is powerful. Lord, your Word is sharper than any two-edged sword. Lord, use the convicting power of the word of the Living God and the convicting power of your mighty Holy Spirit to reveal to every one of us the Truth from your Word. If the message of this tract is not true, then cause it to have no effect on the hearts of those reading it. If, however, the message from your Word IS true, we ask you to release an outpouring of your Holy Spirit on Christians everywhere. For those who are not spiritually ready, cut to the very bottom of their heart and REMOVE THAT FALSE SENSE OF SECUITTY IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN."
Your opinion, and my opinion, do not matter. What you have been taught does not matter. WHAT DOES THE WORD OF GOD SAY? This is ALL that really matters. The remainder of this tract will be WARNINGS DIRECTLY FROM THE WORD OF GOD CONCERNING YOUR READINESS FOR THE RAPTURE! (If YOU are ready, that's wonderful, but how about your family, your friends, and those who sit in the church pews around you?)
In Luke 21, the whole chapter is discussing the End of the Age and the Second Coming of Christ. In verses 34-36, JESUS GIVES AN OMINOUS WARNING TO ALL CHRISTIANS, "and TAKE HEED TO YOURSELVES, lest at any time YOUR HEARTS be over-charged with surfeiting (partying), and drunkenness, AND CARES OF THIS LIFE, and so THAT DAY COME UPON YOU UNAWARES. For as a snare (trap) shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. WATCH YE, therefore, AND PRAY ALWAYS, THAT YE MAY BE ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the son of man (Jesus)."
If ALL Christians were going to take part in this GREAT ESCAPE, WHY WOULD JESUS GIVE SUCH A STERN AND OMINOUS WARNING TO THE END-TIME CHRISTIAN??? This is DEFINITELY a very PERSONAL WARNING for each of us. The subject matter can be nothing but the Tribulation hour and the Rapture. Jesus says to pray always. Surely, Jesus knows that a non-Christian cannot be in an attitude of constant prayer. Surely, non-Christians are not expected to be LOOKING FOR THAT DAY and WATCHING for signs of His Soon Return.
Jesus is continuously talking to HIS FOLLOWERS throughout this chapter. Jesus says to TAKE HEED TO YOURSELF, He is addressing YOUR HEART and He is constantly personalizing this message to YOU, to YE, THE CHRISTIAN! ARE YOU LISTENING? ARE YOU READY???
What can we do, as Christians, to be found WORTHY of the Lord's GREAT ESCAPE, THE RAPTURE? Jesus tells us to be in a constant attitude of prayer. Become so close to the Lord that you can talk with Him about anything. Pray that the Lord would reveal to YOU anything in your life that might keep you from being ready for the Rapture. Then you need to act upon that which the Lord shows you to do.
In this passage, the Lord strongly encourages us to be WATCHING for the SIGNS of His Soon Return, so that we would not be UNAWARE of the approximate time of His Return. Jesus said we could KNOW when His Return was NEAR, EVEN AT THE DOORS! ALL SIGNS NOW CONFIRM TO US THAT HIS COMING IS AT THE DOOR!!!
If you do not have this firm conviction in your heart that our Lord's Return is AT THE DOOR, it is probably because you have not been WATCHING for signs as He continuously admonishes us to do over and over again in the New Testament (Read Mark 13 and 14). Are the CARES OF THIS LIFE your priority, or do you so much look forward to His Return that YOU LOVE HIS APPEARING (II Timothy 4:8) more than the things of this life?
(2 Timothy 4:8) Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
The CARES OF THIS LIFE (Luke 21:34) are what cause us to become "worldly" Christians, or "backslidden" Christians, or "lukewarm" Christians. Luke 21:34-36 (Go back and read it again) strongly implies that these types of Christians ARE NOT READY FOR THE RAPTURE!!!
(Luke 21:34) And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
(Luke 21:35) For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
(Luke 21:36) Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
In Revelation, starting with Chapter 6, the horrible judgments of the Tribulation are poured out on an unsuspecting world. In Chapters 1-3, there are several WARNINGS TO THE CHRISTIANS IN THE LAST DAYS, WARNINGS BEFORE THE RAPTURE AND THE TRIBULATION IN CHAPTERS 6-19.
The constant theme of Revelation, Chapter 2, is the NEED OF THE END-TIME CHRISTIAN TO REPENT! Rev. 2: 4-5 says, "I have somewhat against thee, because THOU HAS LEFT THY FIRST LOVE. Remember, therefore, from whence thou are fallen, AND REPENT, and do the first works; or else I WILL COME UNTO THEE QUICKLY, AND WILL REMOVE THY CANDLESTICK OUT OF HIS PLACE, EXCEPT THOU REPENT."
If you HAVE LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE you are a "backslidden" Christian. You need to REPENT and restore your relationship with Christ back to what it should be. Is the Lord speaking to YOUR HEART RIGHT NOW?
Rev. 3:10 says, "Because thou has kept the word of my patience, I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." The implication of this verse is obvious: If the end-time Christian does NOT stay close to the Lord and endure to the end, HE WILL NOT BE KEPT FROM THE TRIBULATION HOUR!
Rev. 3: 15-16 is ANOTHER OMINOUS WARNING TO ALL CHRISTIANS, "I know thy works, that thou are neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then BECAUSE THOU ART LUKEWARM, AND NEITHER COLD NOT HOT, I WILL SPUE THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH."
Can you honestly give another explanation for this verse, other than the LORD CASTING LUKEWARM CHRISTIANS OUT INTO THE TRIBULATION? What are YOU doing that would show the Lord that you are ON FIRE for Him? These verses say emphatically that their WORKS WERE LUKEWARM.
What happens to the unwatchful SERVANT who believes his LORD is not coming back for a while and is not that concerned about the way he is living his life? Matthew 24: 50-51 says, "the LORD of that SERVANT...shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth (The Tribulation Hour?)." In Matthew 25:30, we see the exact same result for the unprofitable SERVANT. In both cases, there is A LORD--SERVANT RELATIONSHIP ALREADY ESTABLISHED. ARE ALL CHRISTIANS GOING IN THE RAPTURE? WHAT DOES THE WORD SAY???
This world is full of LUKEWARM, BACKSLIDDEN, UNWATCHFUL, AND WORLDLY Christians. In Rev. 7:9, we see a GREAT MULTITUDE, that no man could number, standing before the Lamb of God in Heaven. Verse 14 describes them, "These are they which came OUT OF GREAT TRIBULATION, AND HAVE WASHED THEIR ROBES, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." In Chapter 20, it says they were beheaded for not taking the Mark of the Beast.
This great multitude of people already had robes. Your Robe of righteousness is given to you at the time of your salvation. They were already saved but their ROBES WERE DIRTY. These COMPROMISING Christians were caught up in the CARES OF THE WORLD when the Rapture happened and they were cast into the Tribulation hour like the Scriptures had warned them about so many times. They WASHED THEIR DIRTY ROBES in the Great Tribulation because there is no compromise then---IT'S EITHER JESUS CHRIST (and lose your head) OR ANTICHRIST (and lose your soul FOREVER)!!!
Do you really want to have to face that choice? It is clear from God's Word what you must do to be assured of a place in the Rapture. YOU MUST ACT QUICKLY BECAUSE THE TIME FOR THE RAPTURE IS ALMOST HERE!
1. Make sure that you have received Jesus Christ into your life as your PERSONAL Lord and Saviour. If you do find you need Him to be your personal Lord and Saviour please pray the following prayer with me. There is nothing that can compare with a relationship with God or even come remotely close
Heavenly Father I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I confess to You that I am a sinner and cannot save myself. I confess and repent of all of my sins and unrighteousness. Right now I confess with my mouth Jesus as the Lord of my life and believe in my heart that You, God did indeed raise Him from the dead. I thank You for cleansing and forgiving me of all of my sins and unrighteousness and for saving me. I thank You for sending Your Son to die in my place for my sins, and for the inexpressible gift of eternal life that I now claim through the death of Jesus on the cross. Thank You, Lord, again for saving me. In the Name of Jesus I pray Amen
2. Examine your own heart for any signs of backsliding, worldliness, unwatchfulness, compromising, and lukewarmness.
3. REPENT (Turn COMPLETELY away from sin and turn COMPLETELY around towards Jesus). Sin separates you from God, even as a Christian. Feel free to use the following prayer, praying it with me
Heavenly Father I confess these sins(list them) to You and say I am sorry I did these things, doing so by faith thanking You for Your promise in Your word that when we confess our sins You are faithful and just to forgive them and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Thank You for forgiving all my sins and breaking all demonic oppressions, bondages, and strongholds behind them and deliverance from temptation. In Jesus Name I pray Amen
4. Study end-time Biblical prophecy until you become completely convinced that His Coming is, indeed, AT THE DOOR. This will help keep you from temptation and sin. JESUS IS COMING VERY SOON!!! The book of Revelation, Matthew 24, 25, Mark 13, Luke 12, 17, 21 are good places to start.
5. Do something for the Lord. (Passing out tracts would be a good start.)
6. Examine your priorities, lest the CARES OF THIS LIFE cause YOU to MISS THE RAPTURE, as we are so adamantly WARNED about in Luke 21, and so many other Scriptures.
7. Draw closer to God by praying, reading His Word, attending a fundamental church as often as possible, and surround yourself with a Christian atmosphere (Christian friends, books, music, radio, TV, etc.)
8. PRAY DILIGENTLY. ASK THE LORD TO REVEAL TO YOU ANYTHING IN YOUR LIFE THAT EVEN MIGHT KEEP YOU FROM THE RAPTURE. PRAY THAT THE LORD WOULD GIVE YOU A PEACE, IF YOU ARE READY, AND AN UNREST AND UNEASINESS IN YOUR HEART, IF YOU ARE NOT READY.
9. Listen for His voice and then STAY OPEN TO THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
10. Act upon that which the Lord is calling you to do. DO IT NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!
If the Lord has planted the least bit of doubt or uneasiness in your heart, will you swallow your pride and pray this prayer with me:
"Dear Lord, Thank you for preparing a WAY OF ESCAPE from the horrible Tribulation to come. It is my sincere desire to be ready for your Soon Return, so that I can participate in the Rapture. Give me a COMPLETE PEACE IN MY HEART FROM YOU if I am, indeed, ready.
Let there be no false sense of security in my heart concerning my readiness for Your Return. Begin to reveal to me things in my life and in my heart that might keep me from the Rapture. Show me what I need to do to BE READY and then give me the power to act upon that which you show me to do. Draw me away from the world and closer to you every day. Use me in whatever way you can to help others who may not be ready for your Return. Fill me with your peace when I am ready and fill me with YOUR POWER, for victory over sin and temptation, and for effective service for your kingdom. In Jesus' mighty name, Amen."
The words of the Lord that He would leave with you in these last days before His Return, "REMEMBER THEREFORE, HOW THOU HAST RECEIVED AND HEARD, AND HOLD FAST, AND REPENT. IF THEREFORE, THOW SHALT NOT WATCH, I WILL COME ON THEE AS A THIEF, AND THOU SHALT NOT KNOW WHAT HOUR I WILL COME UPON THEE." (Revelation 3:3)
Feel free to make copies of this tract or forward it to your backslidden, lukewarm, compromising, unwatchful, and worldly family members and friends. Do not delay. Time is short. What we do, we must do quickly now.
God bless you and yours
