The antichrist spirit is rising every moment. The air is filled with the thickness of evil and darkness. People are crying for peace, increase of earthquakes, famines, the hearts of many have grown cold…etc. Do you feel the nearness of end times? It is here, it is NOW!
It is very important to ask yourself this question: Who are you wanting to serve? GOD or Satan?
There is no in-between; you either serve GOD or Satan. If you choose Satan, you are willing to work for his kingdom of darkness and walking in that broad road where most people walk into that leads to hell and everlasting destruction. The narrow road that leads to heaven is very straight; very few walk in it. Some even tried but did not succeed somehow. This narrow road is the path that is serving GOD.
The decision is yours to make whether you want to serve GOD; JESUS CHRIST (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). HE would NOT force you to believe in HIM and serve HIM. Other people cannot make this choice and work this serving process for you as well.
Believing in JESUS CHRIST is the son of GOD, trusting the gift of salvation from HIM, start making HIM your full-time LORD and SAVIOUR is just the beginning… We need to keep pressing in until the end, working on a relationship with HIM daily, fully repenting throughout the day daily, fully surrendering to HIM daily, yielding to HIS HOLY SPIRIT guidance and power every moment to guide you to stay under HIS perfect will, perfect plan and conquer all sins. Watching for HIS soon return daily with expectation. Having a consistent hungering and thirsting for righteousness and the truth.
It is a delight to follow the laws of GOD, for it fully strives for peace and righteousness. It is not a burden to follow HIM, for through the power of HIS HOLY SPIRIT things seem to be much easier. HE alone deserves all our being to serve HIM through following and yielding to do HIS will. HE created all things (refer more: Colossians 1:16) and created us. Throughout this process we will be purging all those unwanted junk (evils) out of us and therefore be purified.
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: Colossians 1:16
When you serve GOD wholeheartedly, there is no point to fear death and the chance of being left behind to face the worse – tribulation or great tribulation that is coming very soon according to the bible. Know well that the book of revelation is playing out this generation! It is to be taken in a literal sense. When a person is completely submitted to GOD, even if he dies he would go to heaven, spending eternity with GOD in love and peace!
Rapturing of the Bride
Rapture is going to happen extremely soon. Expecting GOD’s return to rapture you to heaven and do nothing is NOT the right preparation you should make. The right thing to be rapture ready is to get serious with GOD by fully repenting of all your known and unknown sins including the confession of sins for forgiveness throughout the day, daily. Also, to surrendering all to the will of GOD and all your life to HIM daily, including your future plans. Forgive all if you have not. If you have forgiven all people, be sure to continuously be forgiving when someone in the future who may wrong against you. Work in the relationship with GOD daily. Watching for HIS return daily. Please further your reading HERE for these requirements in details. A GOD fearing person, having a childlike faith and he who have a humble heart towards GOD would be what it is like to be strong in GOD.
GOD is coming very soon, it is this generation that is going to happen. HE is coming to rapture HIS ready bride, those who are fully submitted to GOD, those who do HIS will completely.
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. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
Those bride of CHRIST (bride of YAHUSHUA) who will be raptured to heaven will not experience death and will participate the Marriage Supper of the Lamb event. It would be a very unique situation for generations in the past were not allowed this opportunity to not experience death. Enoch and Elijah did not experience death before, but they are both very possible two witnesses that the Book of Revelation has mentioned about, where the two witnesses would have to taste death.
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. Genesis 5:24
And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. 2 Kings 2:11
And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. Revelation 11:7
It is a very precious chance to be living in this generation. For those who haven’t come to CHRIST, it is time to get right with GOD so that you can also be included in this grand and glorious event about to come! We are currently living in perilous times, therefore there is no time for you to delay or even walk–but to RUN to CHRIST with all your might back to HIM.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 1 Corinthians 15:51-54
We should pray daily to be counted worthy to escape as a bride, so that we will not be left behind to face the worse–tribulation or great tribulation where evil would be in full force and rampant worldwide.
Watching for the LORD’s return is essential. The ten virgins story is a very good example about this as below:
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 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. 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. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Matthew 25:1-13
We are to be the wise virgins, to always be filled with a full oil lamp and be aware and awakened to the LORD’s return, lest we miss it due to our lack of preparation beforehand. Pray to the LORD daily for a FULL oil lamp, for a half filled lamp; being spiritually asleep and into the world is not a bride who is ready for her bridegroom. We live in the world, but not of the world. The true beautiful bride, she who anxiously and excitedly awaits for her bridegroom’s return everyday, anticipating the time when she will be swept away by HIM to her soon wedding.
The bride of YAHUSHUA are NOT subject to GOD’s wrath. She will be taken from the scene BEFORE tribulation or great tribulation period comes, either lasts for 3.5 or 7 years. There will be a pre-trib. or pre-great-trib. rapture because the bride already have reconciled back to GOD and there is no reason for them who are the ready brides who are all covered in the blood of the Lamb belonging to GOD, to suffer the same as those who are wicked sinners during this period as they the bride do the will of GOD completely, and there comes a glorious eternal outcome for them–eternal life with GOD.
It is possible that we are already living in tribulation considering the increase of many calamities and disasters, evils and injustice nowadays. Although when great tribulation comes it would be obvious. By then, taking the mark of the beast would be mandatory.
There will be unhappy people of those who cannot escape from the very dark days to come. Freedom will be taken, and great deception soon will descend upon the earth. Sadly, some will follow the enemy and give their allegiance to the devil. The devil would disguises himself as the angel of light, but afterwards it comes to play of his evil plans. Therefore, it is better to come to CHRIST before tribulation or great tribulation happens to escape all of these troubles and risks of one’s life.
