There has been a lot of discussion recently about the end. A lot of people believe that the rapture has already happened. I can tell you that the rapture has not happened yet. The Holy Bible says “you do not know not when”, and therefore we do not know, and because the Holy Bible says that we will not know, and because the Holy Bible is absolutely true, I believe that God Creator will purposely chose a time that absolutely no one has predicted to be the time to be the end.
30"Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. 31"Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. 32"But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. 33"Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come.
I do believe that we all need to be ready for the end. We should all have relationship with God Creator and Christ Jesus, confess our sin, and repent. We should pray without ceasing, and maintain righteousness. Not only because we desire relationship with God, and not only because we desire the blessings from doing so, but because when God looks for his own, he should never question who are his own.
And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand (Matthew 3:2).
We are granted salvation by believing on Christ Jesus. 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 10:9). Those who have salvation know that they will escape the fire of hell, and those who do not have salvation will spend life after death in hell.
23Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 24Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 26Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. 28There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 29And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
Notice in the above passage, that Jesus says, “depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity”. I do believe that righteousness is expected, and is a part of salvation. While we are all imperfect, that does not excuse us from trying.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. - (Matthew 5:8).
God Creator is in heaven, and if I have to have a pure heart to see him, then I must also have a pure heart to enter heaven. While we are unrighteous, confession and repentance makes a pure heart.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
Heaven is a very real place, and so is hell. God Creator and Christ Jesus believe that they have given you a choice between the two. The truth is if you are not in hell right now, and if you are walking this earth I promise you that you are not in hell, then you still have the ability to repent of your sin and believe on Christ Jesus.
11And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. 13Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
I have heard those that say that God does not know their sin. I promised that this is not true, and that they will be judged for their sin as it is written.
11And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Some believe that it is too late, because they have met the antichrist. I know that it is not too late, and regarding the antichrist, Christ Jesus warned us of the antichrist also. We must stand against the antichrist and not follow it or worship it. It’s intent is to lead people away from God Creator and Christ Jesus.
1 John 2:20-27
20But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 21I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 24Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. 26These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. 27But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
We were warned so that we could prepare ourselves and our hearts. God Creator’s promises are in the Holy Bible, and also are his warnings. It is written that certain things will come to pass, but it is still not our job to make bad things happen. All were created to serve God Creator. The antichrist also was created to serve God Creator, and to believe in Christ Jesus. The antichrist made the choice not to serve God Creator or to believe in him, choosing to listen to the devil and satan instead, and because of its choices it will spend eternity in hell. All, including the antichrist, must choose to believe in God Creator, and choose to not worship false gods, or the dragon. All must confess their sin and repent, and believe on Christ Jesus in order to receive salvation. There is not another way.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. - (John 14:6)
In the name of Christ Jesus, I pray and request that Christ Jesus hear my repentance, and forgive my sin. Christ Jesus, I believe in you, and I believe that you are the only begotten son of God the Creator, and that you were crucified for my sin, and were raised from the grave by God the Creator, and live and reign with God the Creator in heaven. I pray and request that you wash away my sin, and make me whole again. I pray and request that Christ Jesus protect me from unrighteousness, and temptation. I pray and request that you make way for your followers, and help them be all that you need them to be in this time. I pray this request, in the name of Christ Jesus, God the Creator, and in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
