To the faithful born-again church of Jesus Christ our Lord:
Jesus Christ is the Light of the world. And the Light exposes all darkness. And it’s no wonder why the Lord is exposing sins in Holy Wood, politicians, business men, etc. to bringing sinners to repentance.
Opening Scripture: Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus.
Matthew 24 (signs of the rapture of the church age; pre-tribulation)
V:4-5 False Christ’s (false religions)
V:6-7 Wars and rumors of wars
V:9 Persecution and martyrdom of the born-again church
V:10 People hating each other
V:11 False ministers, heresies and apostasy
V:12 Lawlessness, rebellion and loveless
V:29 Last signs before the rapture
V:30-31 The rapture of the church age
(Signs of the second coming of Jesus Christ)
V:15;23-28 Reign of the antichrist
V:16-22 144000 Jews flee into the wilderness
We must get right and stay right with God and ready. Be the glorious, faithful church that Jesus Christ died and risen from the dead for us to be. Not everyone will make Heaven by the rapture nor in death.
Revelation 21:7-8-27 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderer, whoremongers, and sorcerers and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death (V:27) and there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh an abomination, or maketh a lie, but they which are written in the Lambs Book of Life.
And only those who have repented from all sins, baptized into His death, washed in the blood of the Lamb (Jesus Christ), born-again by the Holy Spirit and has a continued real active relationship with God. Totally devoted to the Lord will be written in the Lambs Book of Life.
Jesus is coming in the clouds to deliver His church soon from the presence of sin, before the Great tribulation period begins. But He’s only coming for His bride, who is spotless and ready. Who has completely overcome sin and who is ever continually faithful to the Lord. What does the glorious bride of Christ look like?
Faithful To Christ And His Word
Revelation 3:10-11 Because thou hast kept the word of My patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation (the great tribulation period), which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown (the crown of life).
James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him
Enduring against temptations of sins of the flesh and the devil. Enduring against satanic influences that this sinful fallen world is under. Enduring against the signs of the times (not getting weary and giving up). Enduring against apostate conditions of this generation. A people who do not pray, are not faithful in the things of God therefore, they will stray.
Faithful In Prayer
This is why Jesus Christ has warned His disciples and His bride (the faithful glorious church, Mark 14:37-38 And He cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? Couldest not thou watch one hour? Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
Faithful In Church
Hebrews 10:23-25 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day (the rapture of the church age) approaching.
