*RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL*
*THE RAPTURE IS CLOSER THAN EVER .*
Monday, September 7th .
_*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 4:17).*_
By the Spirit, the Apostle Paul got the revelation of the rapture of the Church and said, _*âBehold, I shew you a mysteryâ¦â*_ (1 Corinthians 15:51). This is why many donât understand the Rapture; itâs a mystery; divine revelation. He said, _*â...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 changedâ*_ (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).
The underlined portion shows how fast the Rapture will happen; itâll be so fast thereâd be no
time for those who werenât prepared, because itâs something for which you should have been prepared all your life.
In our theme verse, we find an expression thatâs synonymous with the term, âRaptureâ; itâs the phrase, âcaught upâ which is from the Greek word, âharpazo.â ÌIt means to seize, catch (away, up), pluck, pull, take by force.
At the Rapture, it makes no difference where you are, the power of God will snatch you away from this world. Christians who had died will be resurrected, and together with them, weâll be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord. What a day that will be!
When is this going to take place? Itâs closer than ever; itâs going to be anytime soon. Your responsibility is to be prepared by living your life for the Lord, every day. Keep walking in love, and your faith activated to be caught up to be with the Lord at His appearing.
The Bible says Heâs coming for a Church without spot, wrinkle, blemish or any such thing (Ephesians 5:27). Live every day, every moment of your life in His righteousness, producing works and fruits of righteousness.
_*The Lord Jesus is coming for a Church without spot, wrinkle, blemish or any such thing, and Iâm ready. My faith is activated to be caught up to be with the Lord forever! And while in expectation of this glorious âcatching away,â my life and passions are about His Kingdom and its expansion; through me, many more are being enlisted for the Rapture, in Jesusâ Name. Amen.*_
