In a moments notice
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. (1 Corinthians 15:51, 52 KJV)
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 KJV)
There are always people late for the trip. However this trip to paradise requires preparation and sealed passport.
These passages of scripture references the death burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Christ's resurrection from mortal flesh to glorified immortality is our example of the rapture.
Do we really believe there is going to be a rapture?
What hinders us?
- our flesh
- the world
Our readiness depends on our relationship with God. Those that are in relationship are sealed by the Holy spirit and are given power to live holy. Living holy everyday prepares us to be ready at any time.
