There are THREE things you must do to be sure to make it in the rapture. MAKE SURE YOU ARE PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION.
– FLAT OUT “no holds barred” -straight at ya’ – telling you like it is . . .
This is coming from years of the ‘proverbial’ studying, hours and hours of hands on ministry experience-dozens of hours of prayer-
and meeting and “knowing HUNDREDS of folks”
>>> AND HOW THEY TICK . . .
-from coast to coast !
– – – – – – –
I’m going to do my best to explain these QUICKLY, yet THOROUGHLY, so THERE WILL BE NO DOUBT !
>>>So, without further ado
IF YOU DO THESE THREE THINGS YOU WILL MAKE IT IN THE RAPTURE !!
3) Personal Evangelism.
That’s it !
– – – – – –
NOW, DO NOT FORGET TO READ OUR ENTIRE PAGE ON “WHO” & “WHEN” THE RAPTURE WILL OCCUR
But, for now . . . read on !!
– – – – – –
First, I can hear the brakes being applied by tons of folks out there. I can almost hear what they are saying !
**What about being “born again”?
What about “righteousness”?
What about prayer?
What about holiness ?
What about tithing ?
What about, what about . . . .
Etc. , etc !
Yup…all that is GOOD-but that ain’t gonna “cut it”. The title of this page is “RAPTURE CHECKLIST” and , although all that stuff just above is GOOD
it all is actually just a BY PRODUCT OF ONE’S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD to begin with !
Let me repeat that. Please, chew on this, HARD
Being born again, righteousness, prayer, church attendance, holiness (“living right”), tithing…etc., etc.
-IF SOMEONE AIN’T right with the Lord in the first place-NONE OF THAT ABOVE IS GOING TO BE “FRUIT” (or effective fruit at least ) in their lives, unless their relationship with the Lord is HOT and ON FIRE
-to begin with !
Now, to dive a little farther, as it relates to this, there is something that “must” be discussed at this point, that has to do with what I’m going to call the “American ” church.”
In short (and to get right to the point) in the American church there is to much “sloppy agape” being preached and taught.(“sloppy agape” means to ‘slop’ the love around, all over,love, love, heaven only, ONLY heaven…. and “ONLY THE LOVE AND TALK OF HEAVEN . . . ALONE. .. ” )
>>>Years ago, William Booth (founder of the Salvation Army) had a very good perspective on it and is quoted as saying :
“The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, heaven without hell.”
William Booth was right.
You see, for preachers or pastors to speak “all the time”-or by far the vast majority of the time–ONLY about the “Love of God”, how wonderful heaven is-AND TO NEVER MENTION OR WARN OF HELL . . .is “kinda ok”. . . it may “point in the right direction..”….
-BUT-it is NOT the “WHOLE Gospel..”
++To be a “Christian” means to FOLLOW Jesus Christ-and to do what He did, to act like He
acted, to be CONCERNED about what concerns Him, Etc… !
So, how did Jesus act, just what did He do . . . and what concerned Him? What is the BIBLE PATTERN that Jesus left for us to follow ??
(Ready…we’re talking about “to much sloppy agape” here . . .?)
>>> Well, Jesus spoke and WARNED of Hell THREE TIMES MORE THAT HE DID OF HEAVEN, in the Gospels
That’s what’s recorded in the Gospels
Really chew on that for a while, please
Chew on it.
++So now, for His whole life, just how did Jesus act-dear Christian and “God follower” . . . . ? 🙂
JESUS LOVED GOD HIS FATHER SO HARD AND SO STRONG THAT HE FOLLOWED HIS FATHERS WILL, TO THE POINT OF DEATH ON THE CROSS.
So, for us as His followers it is NOT “OK” in your relationship with the Lord to do ANYTHING “half- heartedly”. He does not accept “half sacrifices”.
Part time Christians is not something that He accepts.
>>>He-Jesus-DIED for you-and in EXCHANGE He really does expect you to LIVE for Him-in return !!
Jesus says these exact words in the book of Revelation. “I know your deeds: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:15, 16
So, to stay on track with how this relates to folks being born again, righteousness, living in holiness, or doing good works, or any of the number of “good works” listed above. . .it is easy and “anybody” can perform “religious duties”. Anybody can do some “good works”. “Anybody” can attend a church service. “Anybody” can claim they are living in “holiness”. “Anybody can claim they pray . . .
-but God knows peoples HEARTS in the whole matter-just how serious someone is about their prayer life, living right . . . or their church attendance. Or “whatever”. . . .
You see, scripture says :
“If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts,
-and he knows everything”. 1 John 3:20
So, you CAN NOT “FOOL” God. If you are not serving Him-in any measure of the above listed things (**with the asterisks) -or more
-FROM YOUR HEART
-it does not matter.
