1 CORINTHIANS 15:50-53
“I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of GOD, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.”
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in GOD, believe also in Me. In My FATHER’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
The Lord JESUS CHRIST is coming again for His bride the Church without spots or wrinkles. For He says, “However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” (Luke 8:18). The question is not answered by the LORD for He leaves it as an open question. There is no doubt regarding the faithfulness of the Son of Man. The LORD JESUS CHRIST will return for the body of CHRIST, “The Church” and this rest upon the sovereign Word of GOD.
It is hoped that the Scripture Verses about the Rapture and the Second Coming of the LORD JESUS CHRIST will help us to focus more on prayer and spending quality time during our journey on earth creating a personal relationship with the LORD GOD, through faith in the finished work CHRIST JESUS on the cross for our salvation.
Our heavenly FATHER, the words of our LORD JESUS CHRIST regarding the rapture in the air for His bride “The Church” and His coming with His saints have made us more aware of the importance of prayer in such times as this. FATHER, we cry out to you now during our times of great challenges, hardships to help us to be more aware of our lack of faith and trust in our lives. Help us where we are weak and teach us to hold fast to You and pray. Help us to depend on You every day for our needs. Help us to daily seek You first and Your kingdom with all our heart, soul and strength. FATHER GOD, we know that You care and love us and will answer us according to Your perfect will concerning all things. In JESUS’ Holy Name I pray, Amen.
Waiting For His Appearing,
Pastor Wally & Sister Mattie
