Romans Road Twelve Verse Salvation tract

 

            Here is the Romans road message of Salvation in twelve verses making it short and easy to share with people who need it so please feel free to print this out and share this anywhere and everywhere.

The first verse of this states that none are righteous, not one and all have turned back on their own

(Romans 3:10)  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

 

(Romans 3:11)  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

 

(Romans 3:12)  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

 

All have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory in fact but redemption is in Christ

(Romans 3:23)  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

 

(Rom 3:24)  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

 

The wages of sin are death but God’s gift of eternal life is through Jesus

(Romans 6:23)  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

God’s love for us is such that Jesus died for us while we were sinners

(Romans 5:8)  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

 

Here is the way to be saved- confess Jesus as Lord by your mouth and believe God raised Him from the dead which is explained in these two verses

(Romans 10:9)  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

 

(Romans 10:10)  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 

Paul reminds us all who call on Jesus (the Name of the Lord) will be saved.

(Romans 10:13)  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

(Romans 10:11)  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

 

(Romans 10:12)  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

 

God sent Jesus to die to restore the relationship with man which was severed by sin. There is nothing that can compare or come remotely close to a relationship with God. I am now including a prayer which you can say to invite Jesus in your heart and begin this incomparable relationship with God. Please pray this prayer with me

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

 

Now I feel led to add a powerful rapture and end times presentation to the end of this salvation  tract to show all that the end is near and Jesus could come at any time and will as a thief in the night and without any warning of any kind whatsoever.

                                    A New Rapture presentation

 

I honestly believe God has been showing me recently that the rapture is coming sooner and not later as some believe, but we cannot predict the day or the hour but we are to keep doing our part, keeping a good relationship with Him and winning souls until God the Father tells the angels to blow the trumpet and sends Jesus to gather up His children to Him, and so I am adding a presentation with more information on the rapture and end times, for the day of the Lord’s coming will be as a thief in the night and it is necessary for all to be prepared for this always.

Now is a good time to draw near to the Lord and be reading His word, forgiving ALL offenses done against you, asking for God and or others help if need be for I sense Satan is holding many in the bonds of unforgiveness, and more, for I have gotten together a number of prophetic messages both of my own- by dreams and more and from other sources. I do not want anyone to miss this coming rapture for earth will be hell during the tribulation period so now I present information on the rapture and events related below:

 

In the early morning of October 27, 2013 I had a second extremely vivid and memorable dream of the coming rapture and this time it shook me very deeply and to the very core of my being. I had a first dream of the rapture three or four weeks ago, which was also very breathtakingly vivid too, in fact so much so that I thought that the actual rapture was actually taking place right then and there! Both of these dreams had in them the final trump of God blowing very, very loudly. The first one for certain had Jesus in the air and people even going to Him. It seemed like daytime but it could have been night- the time of the day really does not matter. This time this second dream was at night in the middle of the night but it was supernaturally lit and bright so that it was more like it was dusk/dawn rather than the pitch dark of night but I knew the lighting as was wholly supernatural and brighter than the usual moon and stars. This time I saw angels walking about- huge figures well over 30 feet tall but no wings or anything, but now I realize that these were in fact angels. I may have also seen Jesus hanging in the sky in this dream too . I knew this too was a rapture dream because I had heard the trump of God VERY LOUDLY as with the first dream. After this dream, I tried to go back to sleep but I found  that my sleep had completely  went from me this morning due to the extreme urgency of this situation, it is okay with me as it is not too far from when I would have normally woken up normally in the morning but I am now feeling an EXTREMELY STRONG sense of urgency to get this message out NOW to WARN THE PEOPLE OF THE VERY SOON COMING RAPTURE SO THAT YOU ARE INDEED READY FOR JESUS’ imminent return. I do not normally dream prophetically like this- in fact spiritual dreams had been very rare for me- but this is now twice within a month, so I KNOW that I KNOW it is very urgent and this warning dream is not to be ignored! This is in fact FAR TOO important to ignore!! Please folks I implore you to pray to the Lord to ask for a complete sense of peace if you are ready to go and uneasiness if not and for instructions of what to do to be ready and the power to act on those instructions to ensure readiness. I don’t want anyone to miss this rapture and be left behind! I know the power of doubled dreams from reading Pharoah’s dreams of the seven years of plenty and even worse famine in Genesis chapter 41 and this knowledge of that scripture adds to the urgency this early morning, as well as the fact that I don’t normally get prophetic dreams. I sense that the rapture is imminent and could be any time at all now and know it will be without warning as a thief in the night. The Lord could give me more dreams of warning or the next time could be the real thing ONLY HE KNOWS FOR SURE!!! I am led to write this out to warn everyone so as to be ready for the rapture as if it is going to be tomorrow or even today though it could also be months or years away, but DO NOT DELAY in preparing for it. Rush all preparations to completion ASAP. Win as many souls as you can for Jesus, and pray for the lost in the world, especially in the areas not yet reached by the gospel (mainly Asia and northern Africa but there are many other areas unreached in various continents) as well as your family especially those who have not accepted Christ yet. Pray for your country that you live in too, no matter where that is, but most important of all REPENT of ANY SINS NOW so you run no risk of missing the imminent rapture and find yourself left behind to face the chaos immediately following the rapture which will be horrible and also the eventual seven year tribulation period. The Lord did NOT let me go back to sleep so I get this warning on paper and I plan on sharing it later this AM on Facebook Lord willing before attending church at New Life. Here below is more on the rapture and post rapture situations

 

Post rapture and millennial kingdom scenarios for believers taken in the rapture

 

I am now led to write a prophetic note with five scenarios- titled on the base of the type of housing given by God to them after the rapture and during the millennial reign of Jesus and beyond by His grace. Five is the number of grace so I am choosing that one. I am sharing this so people are encouraged to do more for His kingdom so they can in then receive a greater reward by grace, for the bible does say that while by grace are we saved and not by works, it also says faith without works is dead. We will stand judgment at the judgment seat of Christ for what we did and did not do and perhaps more importantly the motive behind these works, that is whether they were done in love our out of selfish motives. God knows why we do all we do. Howard Pittman in his book Placebo had a near death experience and one of his things during his visits to heaven was that he was very soundly rebuked by God for doing his ministry with a wrongful, selfish motive. I recommend getting and reading the book or find the video on youtube- one can learn a lot from it. Motivation to do things in a pure loving way in God’s love  is a hard thing to do, especially this pure selfless motivation especially since our flesh often just craves the approval of others, but we are to put the deeds of the flesh to death, trusting the Holy Spirit for help in this.

These five categories of rewards and such are broken down by size and type of the housing God will give them by His grace and love  after the rapture happens and also during the millennium and eternity in the New Jerusalem. These are being shared in the hopes that people will be encouraged to do even more for God.

 

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.

I post this up in the last days to encourage people to do good works for God so you can reach your full potential and reward through Him after the rapture but also I want to encourage all to seek God asking in prayer to see if they are truly ready to go, asking for peace if they are and uneasiness if not, and for revelation on what needs done and the power and will to accomplish what needs done. Do ALL the Holy Spirit tells you to NOW before the rapture happens for you don’t want to be left behind to face the chaos and tribulations sure to follow and martyrdom, for as I said it is better to make it and end up being a category 1 or 2 than miss it and hope to make it up to try for category 3 to 5 by deeds and martyrdom- too much of a risk to fall away without the strength of the Holy Spirit, which needs to be taken away for the antichrist to manifest (2 Thessalonians 2). I am closing this presentation now with more information and a warning on the rapture so you can be ready.

 

 

I sense this morning that there will be five kinds of people in these end times period- one who make the rapture

Kind  1 Those on whom are ready for the rapture and indeed go in the rapture(see above for the categories of those people, by what housing God might assign them). 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 realize how the blew it badly and then, broken, break down and repent of the lukewarmness, having lost their first love, and whatever else that caused them to miss the rapture and afterwards likely are going to be martyred, as it will be very hard to live out the whole tribulation period totally on their own away from civilization (I suppose it is possible if God was to tell them to do so but it would be very hard). These are largely 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 for being martyred for their faith. I urge readers of this teaching before the rapture to repent NOW of anything that might cause you to miss the rapture(ask God in prayer if there is anything) so as not to be a part of this group but group 1, who make the rapture!!

 

Type 3 those who are NOT saved now before the rapture 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 still is hope for you, if you repent NOW of your sins! It will almost certainly cost your life, being killed by the antichrist for your faith, at the least you will be a hunted fugitive forced to live on your own through the whole tribulation period, but that is far better than to be hard and take the mark of the beast and be in hell forever. To accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior and thus 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.

Amen.

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 those who are persecuting the Christians.

Type 5 is similar, this one is an unsaved and hardened soul who will refuse to repent no matter what, either before or after the rapture 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.

Now here is some more end times materiel for your reading to help you be ready for the soon to come rapture.

In October 2010, The Lord came to me, from my right side, when I was preparing for bed, HE told me "take off your night gown" and I was shocked, I said "Lord, why would you ask me to do such a thing?" and HE said "RAPTURE, VERY VERY SOON!" and I said "O K A Y!!!" and I obeyed HIM, than HE said "get on your hands and knees and this is what you must do when I come and call your name!"

 

I later asked HIM, "when will this happen?" and HE gave me a month and number, i have seen this number pass a couple years, now, I don't believe the number was a day, but a year, I asked HIM, "can I tell everyone?" and HE said "they will think your foolish" so I have only shared this with less than a handful of those who know me and know I live in TRUTH and LOVE!

 

All I will say to YOU now, is PLEASE, PLEASE be prepared NOW, HE is coming VERY VERY SOON!!!  HE does not want YOU to suffer thru the Great Tribulations and neither do I.  HE is the most loving and gentle GOD!  HE will not force you to have a relationship with HIM because HE gives us free will, you must chose to do this or miss the Rapture of HIS Bride and you will for certain feel the wrath of God, HE is a just God and you will either suffer persecution because you finally get it and willing to stand to the point of death or you will go to the pit of HELL with Satan!

 

HE has used me as an End Times Prophet for the doom and gloom and it grieves my spirit.  My strength and guidance comes from HIM and I have cried out and even gotten angry at HIM and HE sent one of HIS Angels to wake me and said "OKAY, YOU WANT TO GO NOW?" and instantly I knew I have a very important and critical duty here on earth, so I replied "NO, I WILL WAIT UNTIL HE COMES FOR HIS BRIDE!" since this visitation in 2010, I have stopped my crying and anticipate HIS return which I KNOW IS VERY, VERY SOON AS HE PROMISED ME!!!  All I can say is "Come Lord Jesus Come!"  THIS IS NOT MY HOME!

 

Stop procrastinating and WAKE UP, repent of your sins and build a relationship with HIM NOW or YOU will miss the RAPTURE and be Left Behind to face the GREAT TRIBULATION, which is the most horrific time on earth and YOU WILL remember these Words as HE told me you would and MY LORD CANNOT LIE!!!

 

AMEN!!!  PRAISE THE LORD!!!

 

 I only answer to God and NOT Man, so I don't care if you chose to believe me or not and think I'm a fool but I do hope and pray you take heed to this warning. I was given October 13, I have seen a couple of these days pass, but could it be October 2013, which is now come and gone and wasn’t the case?Only God The Father knows for certain! But I want people to prepare NOW as HE will be coming as a thief in the night and without any warning, when people will LEAST expect Him to!!! Repent NOW of your sins, give forgiveness to any and all offenses as HE forgave us who have repented, read His Word daily, stay in constant prayer (especially in tongues, if you have the gift of praying in tongues, if not it is easy to ask God and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and praying in tongues) and fellowship with HIM. HE wants a relationship with you, not religion!!! Praise You Lord Jesus Christ!

 

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!

 

Here are some articles I found online that I am sharing with you to again emphasize the point to be ready for the rapture and to not find yourself to be left behind to face the tribulation period to follow it. I do not want any to miss the rapture and so I share this because I do care for people.

 

Millions of People Just Disappeared??!!!!!!!!!!!! You've Missed The Rapture Of The Church, Now What?

By Geoffrey Grider — NowTheEndBegins.com

“And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.”
— John 14:29

Well, we told you it was coming. Perhaps you were a casual reader of this site, but never got really involved, “too many religious nuts” you said. Maybe you had a family member who would plead with you night after night to “get right” with Jesus before His return. “Nah, never happen”, you said, “people been saying that for ever. Nonsense!”. But, it wasn’t nonsense, was it? Turns out the religious nuts were right after all. The Rapture of the Church actually happened. Now we are gone, and you remain. Left behind. I can only imagine the shock - terror - panic - and questions that must be running through your head right now. My heart breaks for you, and that’s why I made this page, to get you through what the Bible calls the time of Jacob’s Trouble, the Great Tribulation, and it’s moments away from starting.

Are YOU ready?

Let’s begin at the beginning...



Here's what just happened.

It was the hope of every Jesus-follower, prior to the Rapture, that one day He would return and "catch away" those who loved and believed in Him. Why did we think this was going to occur? Because the Bible said so, listen:

“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 shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words”
— 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-18

And that's exactly what just happened, and where we have now gone. Oh, knowing the media as I do, I am sure that there are many attempts to explain it - UFO's, alien abductions, a harmonic convergence, a government program, FEMA camps, cosmic shift, worm holes, and the list goes on and on. But none of those explainations really satisfy you, do they? I mean, it's hundreds upon hundreds of millions of people, right? Could any one government, no matter how corrupt, really process that many people in the "blink of an eye". No, they could not. You know better than that.



In the Book of the Revelation, what happened to John in chapter 4, verses 1 & 2, is what has now happened to all of us who are gone.

“After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was] opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. Rev 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and [one] sat on the throne."
— Revelation 4

Wild, isn't it? We all heard the "sound of a trumpet", and were pulled up in to the clouds to be with the Lord Jesus, Yeshua Ha'Maschiach Himself. Look at the photo above, and reread 1 Thessalonians 4 again to yourself. That is what has happen, and that is where we are. With Jesus. Take a little moment and let that really, truly, actually, wonderfully sink into your mind.

What God has declared will be so, will be so.

Why you and not me??

Now I know your next question, and you are wondering why, why...why that you got left behind and others did not. It's not fair, you exclaim! Maybe you were a church goer, maybe you are a "good, moral person" who likes to do good deeds. Maybe you were a Deacon in your church. All these things are good, but unfortunately, not nearly good enough. This is how God see you, me, all of us humans here on this earth:

“All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”
— Isaiah 53:6

The Bible says that man, of and by himself, can never be and will never be “good enough” to get into the Father’s presence in Heaven. We have all sinned against a just and holy, sinless God. So why, you ask again, if it’s true that all of us are in this condition, did we go up and you stay behind?

We are gone now because we put our trust and faith in the the One, the only One who has the true power to forgive sin, and that is Yeshua Ha'Maschiach — Jesus the Messiah — who shed His blood once and for all for the forgiveness of sins. What can wash away your sin? Nothing, nothing, nothing but the blood of Jesus.

The road to Heaven starts at the old, rugged, bloody cross..."And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
— John 3:15-16

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.”
—Romans 5: 8-10

And that’s why we are gone and you remain. We were not better than you in any way. You and I had equal sin that needed cleansing and forgiving. But the difference is that we repented, turned from our sins, and turned to the living Lord whose death and resurrection from the dead paid the sin debt we owed. You were left behind becuase your debt is still unpaid, but there is good news yet for you. Right now, right in front of the computer screen you are reading this on, you can have the debt for all your sins paid in full.

Ready?

You Can Be Saved--Right Now. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”
—Romans 10: 9-10

Pray and ask the Lord, “Lord Jesus, be merciful to me a sinner, and save me. I now, with a repentant heart, receive you as my personal Savior”.

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”
— Romans 10:13

If you meant it, if you were sincere, if you now know your desperate need for a Savior and have called upon Him to pay your sin debt, according to the Scripture, then the Bible declares that your sin debt is now paid in full. Just remember that repentance is always the starting point. If you were doing things and living in a way that the Bible forbids, turn from those sins and be cleansed in His shed blood.

Now you know what has happened to us, here is what you can expect to happen on earth during the next 7 years. And it’s not going to be pretty, so be prepared. But if you just received payment for your sins, you can take comfort that no matter how bad things get, your eternal destiny is now secure.



The Great Tribulation, or the Time of Jacob's Trouble

Please watch these videos as they are an excellent overview of what has happened to those of us who have been raptured, and a good guide to what you can expect down here on earth during the time of the coming Great Tribulation.



Listen to Pastor John Hagee's powerful 2-part message on the Book of Revelation



Living for the Lord, Dying for the Truth

As you have probably figured out by now, the coming Great Tribulation is not going to be a picnic. In fact, as you can see from the left sidebar, it's going to be quite nasty. Before the Rapture, it was pretty easy for bible belivers to meet, read and discuss the Bible. But under the rule of Antichrist, it will be outlawed. The fate of a lot of believers during this time you now find yourself in will end in beheading for refusal to take the Mark of the Beast.

“And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled”
— Revelation 6: 9-11

Do NOT take the Mark of the Beast

The Antichrist is going to make life very tough for you, and at some point during this time, he will introduce a "mark" that everyone will be required to take if you want to continue buying or selling anything. While we were here on earth, we had many lively debates as to exactly what form that mark would take, but you are about to see that for yourself. The bible says that it will be associated with worship of the Antichrist. If you refuse to take this mark, as all Jesus followers will, the price you will pay will be death.



We guessed as to what exact form the Mark of the Beast will take, but you will see it for yourself — DO NOT TAKE IT.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.”
— Revelation 13: 16-18

Under NO circumstances, for ANY reason should you accept this mark. For if you do you will be consigned to the fires of Hell for all eternity. If not taking the mark means you can't buy food, then find some other way to acquire it. If not taking the mark means spending the rest of the time of the Tribulation on the run as a fugitive, then so be it. This mark is the symbol of allegiance with the Devil himself, and EVERY one that accepts will share his fate in Hell. Click here for some more info on the Mark of the Beast.

The Judgements of God are about to be poured out on all the earth

Now read this exerpt by Dr. David Reagan on what you can expect to happen during your time left on earth for the rest of the 7 year Tribulation.

“Amid all the chaos from the Rapture, the Bible teaches that the world will turn to a dynamic leader to bring order and peace (Revelation 6:1-2). He will succeed where no other person has been able in establishing a peace treaty for Israel (Daniel 9:27). That treaty marks the official beginning of the 7 years that the Tribulation will last.

But, the world leader, known to believers in Jesus as the Antichrist, is anything but peaceful. He will plunge the planet into nuclear world war, resulting in terrible famines, pestilence and mass death. Violence, disease and starvation will be a way of life. A quarter of the world population — almost 2 billion people will die from this war (Revelation 6).

In Jerusalem, 2 men will appear and preach there for 3 1/2 years that Jesus is the Messiah the Jews have been looking for (Revelation 11:3). 144,000 Jews will call Jesus their Messiah and also preach about Him throughout the whole world. Millions will accept Jesus as their Savior - hopefully you will be one of them. But, many of those millions of believers will be killed by the Antichrist for not pledging their loyalty to him by receiving his mark on either their right hand or forehead. The persecution of believers in Jesus will be awful in the Tribulation (Daniel 7:22; Revelation 7).



Next, the greatest earthquake the world has yet experienced will devastate the planet (Revelation 6:12-14). Something falling from space will then burn up a third of all the world's vegetation. A second item from space, probably a meteor, will crash into the ocean and annihilate a third of the world's marine life and ships. A third object from space will taint the world’s water supply, poisoning millions (Revelation 8:7-11).

The devastation to the atmosphere will block out most of the sun and moonlight so that the days appear shorter (Revelation 8:12).

Next, some supernatural “woes” will befall mankind. First, the holding place for a demonic hoard is opened and millions of locust-looking demons pour out and sting people like scorpions. The pain will last 5 whole months. Second, 200 million riders on horse-creatures will burn and impale, wiping out a remaining third of the people (Revelation 9:1-19).

Three and a half years into the Tribulation will see the 2 men witnessing in Jerusalem killed, but 3 1/2 days later come back to life (Revelation 11:7-12). It will also see the Antichrist supposedly killed and appear to come back to life as well (Revelation 13:3).

And that’s just the first half of the Tribulation. As bad as the first half of the seven years is, the next half is even worse (Revelation 16).

Those who take the Antichrist’s loyalty mark on their hand or forehead will suffer from painful boils. Those who don't take the mark will be cut off from commerce and hunted down, but the Bible assures (Revelation 20:4-6) that those who take the mark have made a decision that will last forever — eternal ****ation. So, DON’T TAKE IT!

The oceans and everything in them are totally destroyed, as well as all the fresh water. The heat from the sun will become scorching. The Antichrist’s kingdom will fall into pitch darkness.” source — Dr. David Reagan



What now?

Study the Bible every day, many times per day. PRAY to God, who gives wisdom liberally. Share the Gospel with as many as you can. Make sure no one you know, saved or unsaved, takes the Mark of the Beast. They will be doomed forever to Hell if they do.

We are watching you from the balcony now, and just know that we are praying for you always during the time of the Great Tribulation. This verse speaks of us, the redeemed in Heaven, cheering you on during this time. May the Holy Spirit lead you and guide you all the Home. We will be waiting for you to arrive.

In Jesus precious Name, amen...and amen.

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Hbr 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
—Hebrews 12: 1,2

WHAT WILL YOU DO IF YOU ARE LEFT BEHIND?


(NEWSPAPER HEADLINES THE DAY AFTER THE RAPTURE)

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE DISAPPEAR!!!

MASSIVE EARTHQUAKES FELT AROUND THE
WORLD--VERY HEAVY CASUALTIES!!!

RUSSIA AND HER ALLIED FORCES ARE ANNIHILATED
IN SURPRISE ATTACK ON ISRAEL!!!

OBAMA PROPOSES COMPREHENSIVE PEACE PROPOSAL
AND DISARMAMENT PROGRAM

WORLDWIDE PANIC AS STOCK MARKET COLLAPSES!!!

GLOBAL CHAOS!!!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT?!!


VERY SOON NOW HEADLINES SUCH AS THESE WILL APPEAR IN YOUR DAILY NEWSPAPER. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT DELETE THIS EMAIL! YOU MAY NOT BELIEVE A WORD IN THIS EMAIL, BUT IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT DELETE THIS EMAIL.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS EMAIL IS TO GIVE YOU INSTRUCTIONS ON WHAT TO DO WHEN THESE NEWSPAPER HEADLINES BECOME A REALITY. PROPHETIC
BIBLICAL EVENTS ARE EXPLODING NOW WITH LIGHTNING-LIKE SPEED, AS
GOD PREPARES THE WORLD FOR THE SUDDEN DESTRUCTION AND THE CATACLYSMIC JUDGMENTS IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION. AT THE SAME TIME, GOD IS PREPARING TO REMOVE BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIANS FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH, IN WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE RAPTURE. MANY OF YOUR CHRISTIAN FRIENDS AND RELATIVES WILL BE SUDDENLY MISSING.

YOU CAN READ ABOUT THIS AWESOME END-TIME EVENT IN THE BIBLE IN 1ST THESSALONIANS 4:16--17, "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 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."

DESPITE YOUR DOUBT AND UNBELIEF NOW, WHEN MILLIONS OF PEOPLE SUDDENLY DISAPPEAR, AND THE HORRIBLE JUDGMENTS IN THE BOOK OF
REVELATION BEGIN TO UNFOLD BEFORE YOUR EYES, YOU ARE GOING TO NEED THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS EMAIL.

REMEMBER, SOMEONE CARED ENOUGH ABOUT YOU TO SEE THAT YOU RECEIVED THIS EMAIL, BECAUSE THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY. EVEN IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO BELIEVE THIS WARNING MESSAGE, THE LEAST YOU CAN DO IS TO SAVE IT FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE WHO ARE LEFT BEHIND, HERE ARE SOME SIMPLE BASIC BIBLICAL INSTRUCTIONS ON WHICH YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY MAY BE DETERMINED:

1. GET HOLD OF A BIBLE AND READ THE LAST BOOK, THE BOOK OF REVELATION. ALSO READ MATTHEW 24, LUKE 17 AND 21, MARK 13, AND 1ST AND 2ND THESSALONIANS. THIS WILL GIVE YOU A BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT HAS JUST HAPPENED AND WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. IF YOU ASK GOD TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE READING, HE WILL DO IT.

2. RECOGNIZE THAT YOU ARE NOW IN WHAT THE BIBLE REFERS TO AS THE TRIBULATION PERIOD. MATTHEW 24:21 SAYS, "FOR THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION, SUCH AS WAS NOT SINCE THE GEGINNING OF THE WORLD TO THIS TIME, NO, NOR EVER SHALL BE." ACCORDING TO THE BOOK OF REVELATION, OVER ONE-HALF OF THE POPULATION OF THE EARTH WILL PERISH DURING THIS HORRIFIC TIME OF UNPARALLELED DISASTERS.

3. A WORLD LEADER WILL EMERGE. THE BIBLE REFERS TO HIM AS THE ANTICHRIST, OR THE BEAST. READ 2ND THESS. 2 AND REVELATION 13, AND DANIEL7--9, SO THAT YOU CAN IDENTIFY HIM FOR WHAT HE REALLY IS. BEWARE, FOR HE IS NOT A MAN OF PEACE, BUT A MAN OF GREAT DECEPTION. MANY CHRISTIANS HAVE ALREADY IDENTIFIED THIS EVIL MAN, AS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!!!

THE VAST MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WILL BE DECEIVED DURING THIS TIME,
BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE ONE OF THEM. 2ND THESS. SAYS, "AND FOR THIS CAUSE, GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE: THAT THEY ALL MIGHT BE ****ED, WHO BELIEVED NOT THE TRUTH, BUT HAD PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS."

4. NEVER TAKE A MARK IN YOUR RIGHT HAND OR FOREHEAD!!!
ACCORDING TO REVELATION 13:16--17, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO BUY OR SELL ANYTHING WITHOUT THIS IDENTIFYING MARK ON YOUR BODY. HOWEVER, REV. 14:9--11 SAYS, "IF ANY MAN WORSHIP THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE, AND RECEIVE HIS MARK IN HIS FOREHEAD, OR IN HIS HAND, THE SAME SHALL DRINK OF THE WINE OF THE WRATH OF GOD,...AND HE SHALL BE TORMENTED WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE...AND THE SMOKE OF THEIR TORMENT ASCENDED UP FOR EVER AND EVER: AND THEY HAVE NO REST DAY NOR NIGHT, WHO WORSHIP THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE, AND WHOSOEVER RECEIVETH THE MARK OF HIS NAME."

WHAT AN EXTREMELY FRIGHTENING PICTURE!!! GO WITHOUT FOOD, OR SPEND ETERNITY IN HELL---WHICH WILL YOU CHOOSE??? JUST LIKE YOU REJECTED CHRIST BEFORE, OF YOUR OWN FREE WILL--GOD IS STILL GIVING YOU A FREE CHOICE. WILL YOU FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST OR THE ANTICHRIST???

5. YOU MUST RECOGNIZE THAT TO BECOME A BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN DURING THE TRIBULATION, WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY COST YOU YOUR LIFE!!!
REVELATION 20:4 SAYS, I SAW THE SOULS OF THEM THAT WERE BEHEADED FOR THE WITNESS OF JESUS, AND FOR THE WORD OF GOD, AND WHICH HAS NOT WORSHIPPED THE BEAST, NEITHER HIS IMAGE, NEITHER HAD RECEIVED
HIS MARK UPON THEIR FOREHEADS, OR IN THEIR HANDS; AND THEY LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A THOUSAND YEARS."

6. FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS 1 THROUGH 5 WILL STILL NOT GET YOU INTO HEAVEN. THE MOST IMPORTANT INSTRUCTION THAT THE BIBLE GIVES TO HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN IS THE SAME ONE THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE FOLLOWED BEFORE THE RAPTURE HAPPENED AND THE TRIBULATION BEGAN. THAT IS, TO REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND TO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOUR.

THIS WORLD IS FULL OF PEOPLE WHO MISTAKENLY BELIEVE THEY ARE ON THEIR WAY TO HEAVEN. THEY ARE GREATLY DECEIVING THEMSELVES, AS THEY WILL SOON FIND OUT WHEN THE RAPTURE TAKES PLACE.

WHO WILL BE LEFT BEHIND???

1. ALL THOSE WHO ARE COUNTING ON THEIR CHURCH MEMBERSHIP, CHURCH ATTENDANCE, CHURCH AFFILIATION, OR RELIGION TO GET THEM TO HEAVEN.

2. ALL THOSE WHO ARE COUNTING ON THEIR BAPTISM TO GET THEM TO HEAVEN. BAPTISM IS AN ACT OF OBEDIENCE AFTER SALVATION.

3. ALL THOSE WHO BELIEVE THAT A BELIEF IN GOD, OR FAITH IN GOD, IS ALL THEY NEED. EVEN SATAN AND ALL HIS DEMONS BELIEVE IN GOD.

4. ALL THOSE WHO ARE TRUSTING IN THEIR GOOD WORKS. EPHESIANS
2:8--9 SAYS, "FOR BY GRACE ARE YOU SAVED THROUGH FAITH; AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD: NOT OF WORKS, LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST."

5. ALL THOSE WHO HAVE TRIED TO BECOME A "CHRISTIAN", WITHOUT RECOGNIZING AND REPENTING OF THE SIN IN THEIR LIFE. ROMANS 3:23 SAYS,
"FOR ALL HAVE SINNED", AND ROMANS 6:23 SAYS, "FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD."

YOU MUST REPENT OF YOUR SIN, WHICH MEANS TO TURN AWAY FROM YOUR SIN AND TO ASK JESUS CHRIST TO COME INTO YOUR HEART AND LIFE AND GIVE YOU POWER OVER THAT SIN. TRUE REPENTENCE MUST TAKE PLACE FOR YOU TO BE SAVED. CONFESSING YOUR SINS, OR FEELING REMORSEFUL FOR YOUR SINS IS NOT ENOUGH.

IF YOU ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE READ THIS EMAIL BEFORE THE RAPTURE HAS TAKEN PLACE, WHY DON'T YOU ASK JESUS TO COME INTO YOUR LIFE NOW. THEN YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT TO DO AFTER THE RAPTURE TAKES PLACE--YOU WILL BE AMONG THOSE WHO HAVE DISAPPEARED YOURSELF!!!

JESUS SAID IN JOHN 14:6, "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE:
NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME. WON'T YOU PUT YOUR COMPLETE HOPE AND TRUST IN JESUS, AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOUR TODAY?

IF YOU ARE AN UNSAVED PERSON, OR A BACKSLIDDEN, WORLDLY, COMPROMISING, OR LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN, WILL YOU SAY THIS PRAYER, AND REALLY MEAN IT IN YOUR HEART:

"DEAR JESUS, I KNOW THAT I AM A SINNER. I REPENT OF MY SINS. I TURN AWAY FROM MY SIN, AND TURN MY LIFE OVER TO YOU, JESUS. I BELIEVE THAT YOU DIED ON THE CROSS FOR MY SINS. I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD, AND THAT YOU PAID THE PENALTY ON THE CROSS FOR MY SINS. I ASK YOU NOW, TO COME INTO MY HEART AND LIFE TO BE MY PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOUR. PREPARE MY HEART FOR YOUR SOON RETURN, SO THAT I CAN ESCAPE THE HORRIBLE JUDGMENTS THAT ARE SOON TO STRIKE THIS PLANET. JESUS, PREPARE MY HEART FOR THE RAPTURE. THANK YOU LORD, FOR SAVING ME. IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN."

 

 

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! Below is more information on the coming rapture including scripture which explains a lot so I recommend reading this:

 

Here is a powerful tract and teaching containing powerful information on the coming rapture. Please prayerfully read all this. The site owner freely gives permission to share this, which is what I am doing now. God bless

 

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.



Maranatha!



God bless you and yours
