Not All Who Believe In Jesus Will Make The Rapture But Only Those Who Believe And Also Preach

Updated: Mar 11, 2022

James 2:14-26 Living Bible

14 Dear brothers, what’s the use of saying that you have faith and are Christians if you aren’t proving it by helping others? Will that kind of faith save anyone? 15 If you have a friend who is in need of food and clothing, 16 and you say to him, “Well, good-bye and God bless you; stay warm and eat hearty,” and then don’t give him clothes or food, what good does that do? 17 So you see, it isn’t enough just to have faith. You must also do good to prove that you have it. Faith that doesn’t show itself by good works is no faith at all—it is dead and useless. 18 But someone may well argue, “You say the way to God is by faith alone, plus nothing; well, I say that good works are important too, for without good works you can’t prove whether you have faith or not; but anyone can see that I have faith by the way I act.” 19 Are there still some among you who hold that “only believing” is enough? Believing in one God? Well, remember that the demons believe this too—so strongly that they tremble in terror! 20 Fool! When will you ever learn that “believing” is useless without doing what God wants you to? Faith that does not result in good deeds is not real faith. 21 Don’t you remember that even our father Abraham was declared good because of what he did when he was willing to obey God, even if it meant offering his son Isaac to die on the altar? 22 You see, he was trusting God so much that he was willing to do whatever God told him to; his faith was made complete by what he did—by his actions, his good deeds. 23 And so it happened just as the Scriptures say, that Abraham trusted God, and the Lord declared him good in God’s sight, and he was even called “the friend of God.” 24 So you see, a man is saved by what he does, as well as by what he believes. 25 Rahab, the prostitute, is another example of this. She was saved because of what she did when she hid those messengers and sent them safely away by a different road. 26 Just as the body is dead when there is no spirit in it, so faith is dead if it is not the kind that results in good deeds.


Hello world,

Have you been having dreams and visions of the Rapture? Have you been seeing the Lord coming and leaving you on earth? Or, the Lord coming and taking you as your body transforms into something new? Has there been visions in your mind and sleep of earthquakes, shifting stars in the sky at night, tidal waves, war, and the Devil looking at you, among many other dreams and visions? These dreams and visions are warnings coming to you from the Holy Spirit and the Angels of Light about the Rapture and the natural disasters and space disasters that will follow after it. This is Joel 2 in action,


Acts 2:16-21

Authorized (King James) Version


16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 and on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19 and I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20 the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: 21 and it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.


In some of these dreams and visions from God, God has been telling us that many will not make the Rapture, though they believe in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord in a previous message to me here on this web page, gave me a message for you who read here, about a certain flock of believers that He's grieved about because they are NOT going to make the Rapture. This flock are church goers. They go to church and pray because they believe in the Lord Jesus.

The Lord told me that when these people heard that the Lord is warning people in dreams, visions and prophecies to repent and prepare for the Rapture because He's about to come back in the Rapture, they said to themselves and to their families, "Oh no! We better get to church and give the Pastor some money".

They think that doing those two things will grant them access to make the Rapture. According to 1 Cor. 15:50-58 and 1 Thes. 4:13-18, the Rapture is when we are taken to heaven, to the New Jerusalem in the sky (Rev. 21, 22), to live with God forever. Revelation 22:14 says,


Revelation 22:14

Authorized (King James) Version


14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.


You've got to preach (Mt. 24:43-51). Going to church to pray, hear the Bible and give money to the Pastor, is not how to make the Rapture, though you are believers. Those kinds of believers, are like Martha, who was rejected by the Lord Jesus, because she was NOT serving the Lord, and His church, in the correct way.


Luke 10:38-42

Authorized (King James) Version{Paraphrased}


38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that {Jesus} entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. 40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. 41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: 42 but one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.


Serving dinner to God's house is not only what the Lord wants us to do. But what you serve, is what makes the difference between who will, and who will not, make the Rapture. Serve meat to the Lord's house.


Matthew 24:43-51

Authorized (King James) Version


43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 and shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


Acts 20:28

Authorized (King James) Version


28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.


Martha was preparing dinner for the flesh of the believers to eat.


Matthew 4:4

Authorized (King James) Version {Paraphrased}


4 But {Jesus} answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.


We are to feed God's church the meat of the Word, the Bible. SPIRITUAL food.


Jeremiah 3:14, 15

Authorized (King James) Version


14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: 15 and I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.


Hebrews 5:9-14

Authorized (King James) Version {Paraphrased}


9 and being made perfect, {Jesus} became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; 10 called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec. 11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. 12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.


Serving food and basic necessities to the less fortunate in Church, is not an error. For, in the opening Scripture passage of this post, James 2:14-26, the Bible says that giving food and clothes in church is what faith is. If we believe in the Lord Jesus, we serve him like Martha did in church. Doing these things will enable us to make the Rapture because it is faith in action. But prophesying, preaching and teaching the church, feeding them spiritual food, is what Jesus was talking about when He commands us to feed His house in order to make the Rapture in Mt. 24:43-51.

Prophesying, preaching and teaching the Word, the Bible, to the church, and also feeding them food to their flesh, clothing their bodies, doing what the churches call "Banquets for the Homeless" and opening the "Food Pantry", for example, are ALL commands in the Bible. Serving the Lord as Mary and Martha, will enable us to make the Rapture. Martha was rejected in that passage, Luke 10:38-42, because Jesus wasn't first in her heart.

So to this flock that is being rejected by the Lord because they believe that they're going to make the Rapture by going to church and giving money to the pastor, you need to know that you need to do more than that. There are many dead churches in this world who do what the Bible says. They show their faith by their works. But like Martha, God is not first in their hearts because they have not been born again.

Jesus said that we must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God. If you want to make the Rapture, you've got to do more than the commands of the Bible. You've got to be born again and baptized into the Holy Spirit, because you can do the works of faith, but if you are not born again, you are NOT going to make the Rapture.

So you believe in Jesus. But that's not enough to make the Rapture. So you go to church. But that's not enough to make the Rapture. So you give money to the pastor. You feed the homeless. You pray and Read the Bible. You preach and lay hands on the sick, like the Bible says to. But that's not enough to make the Rapture. You MUST be born again to make the Rapture. All of that counts toward eternity ONLY after we've been born again.


ONLY THE BORN AGAIN WILL MAKE THE RAPTURE


John 3:1-21

Living Bible


1-2 After dark one night a Jewish religious leader named Nicodemus, a member of the sect of the Pharisees, came for an interview with Jesus. “Sir,” he said, “we all know that God has sent you to teach us. Your miracles are proof enough of this.” 3 Jesus replied, “With all the earnestness I possess I tell you this: Unless you are born again, you can never get into the Kingdom of God.” 4 “Born again!” exclaimed Nicodemus. “What do you mean? How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?” 5 Jesus replied, “What I am telling you so earnestly is this: Unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. 6 Men can only reproduce human life, but the Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven; 7 so don’t be surprised at my statement that you must be born again! 8 Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it will go next, so it is with the Spirit. We do not know on whom he will next bestow this life from heaven.” 9 “What do you mean?” Nicodemus asked. 10-11 Jesus replied, “You, a respected Jewish teacher, and yet you don’t understand these things? I am telling you what I know and have seen—and yet you won’t believe me. 12 But if you don’t even believe me when I tell you about such things as these that happen here among men, how can you possibly believe if I tell you what is going on in heaven? 13 For only I, the Messiah, have come to earth and will return to heaven again. 14 And as Moses in the wilderness lifted up the bronze image of a serpent on a pole, even so I must be lifted up upon a pole, 15 so that anyone who believes in me will have eternal life. 16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it. 18 “There is no eternal doom awaiting those who trust him to save them. But those who don’t trust him have already been tried and condemned for not believing in the only Son of God. 19 Their sentence is based on this fact: that the Light from heaven came into the world, but they loved the darkness more than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20 They hated the heavenly Light because they wanted to sin in the darkness. They stayed away from that Light for fear their sins would be exposed and they would be punished. 21 But those doing right come gladly to the Light to let everyone see that they are doing what God wants them to.”


What is Born Again?


Born Again is a spiritual experience that connects you spiritually to God. It is when the Holy Spirit makes you a new creation, or, a brand new person inside.


2 Corinthians 5:17

Authorized King James) Version


17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.


Born Again means to be in Christ, as 2 Cor. 5:17 says. The new person we become when we get born again, is Christ's image.


Romans 8:29

Authorized (King James) Version


29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.


Born Again is when the Holy Spirit comes to live inside of us and from within, He gives us a new heart and a new spirit. He makes us brand new persons, as 2 Cor. 5:17 says.


Ezekiel 36:25-27

Authorized (King James) Version


25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.


Born Again is salvation. It is spiritual washing, regeneration and renewing. Born again is the Holy Spirit, from within, washing, regenerating and renewing the human heart and spirit.


Titus 3:4-6

Authorized (King James) Version


4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6 which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;


See this passage also in the Living Bible Version:


Titus 3:4-6

Living bible


4 But when the time came for the kindness and love of God our Savior to appear, 5 then he saved us—not because we were good enough to be saved but because of his kindness and pity—by washing away our sins and giving us the new joy of the indwelling Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out upon us with wonderful fullness—and all because of what Jesus Christ our Savior did


Born Again is the Holy Spirit using the Word, God's Word, the Bible, to wash our hearts from sin and renew us.


1 Peter 1:22-25

Authorized (King James) Version


22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 but the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.


See this passage also in the Living Bible Version:


1 Peter 1:22-25

Living Bible


22 Now you can have real love for everyone because your souls have been cleansed from selfishness and hatred when you trusted Christ to save you; so see to it that you really do love each other warmly, with all your hearts. 23 For you have a new life. It was not passed on to you from your parents, for the life they gave you will fade away. This new one will last forever, for it comes from Christ, God’s ever-living Message to men. 24 Yes, our natural lives will fade as grass does when it becomes all brown and dry. All our greatness is like a flower that droops and falls; 25 but the Word of the Lord will last forever. And his message is the Good News that was preached to you.


Water baptism represents the spiritual salvation that the Holy Spirit does to the human heart and spirit with the Bible. The Holy Spirit is like water (Jn. 7:37-39). And baptism into the Holy Spirit and water baptism, are forms of death (Rom. 6). The water in water baptism represents the Holy Spirit. When you go down into the water it represents the death that the Holy Spirit does to the old nature in you, the sinful nature. You are crucified with Christ. When you come up out of the water, it represents the Holy Spirit resurrecting you a new heart and spirit with the Bible. You are a new creation. Old things are dead and all things have become new.

Salvation is a new life with God through faith in the Lord Jesus; faith in what He did with His death and resurrection for us, and the death to the old nature and the resurrection to a new life with a new heart and spirit that the Holy Spirit creates in us with the Bible.

To this flock who think you're going to heaven in the Rapture by going to church and giving money to the pastor, you're the ones God is going to leave behind because you have not been born again. It may sound exclusive and cold to say that. But Jesus loves you and is crying for you because you're people that He died for. He wants you in heaven with Him forever because He's your Creator and He loves you more than life.

God has to hurt people by telling them the truth like He is in this Post, because God loves those He corrects. He is correcting you today with this Post because He loves you and wants you in heaven in the Rapture, just like you want to go to heaven to be with Him forever in the Rapture. So today, He wants you to know that you're NOT going to make it unless you get born again.

See, the Lord loves you, and to make the Rapture, you have to accept this painful truth today, that you're not going to make the Rapture, like you think you are, unless you get born again.


Hebrews 12:5-17

Living Bible


5 And have you quite forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you, his child? He said, “My son, don’t be angry when the Lord punishes you. Don’t be discouraged when he has to show you where you are wrong. 6 For when he punishes you, it proves that he loves you. When he whips you, it proves you are really his child.” 7 Let God train you, for he is doing what any loving father does for his children. Whoever heard of a son who was never corrected? 8 If God doesn’t punish you when you need it, as other fathers punish their sons, then it means that you aren’t really God’s son at all—that you don’t really belong in his family. 9 Since we respect our fathers here on earth, though they punish us, should we not all the more cheerfully submit to God’s training so that we can begin really to live? 10 Our earthly fathers trained us for a few brief years, doing the best for us that they knew how, but God’s correction is always right and for our best good, that we may share his holiness. 11 Being punished isn’t enjoyable while it is happening—it hurts! But afterwards we can see the result, a quiet growth in grace and character. 12 So take a new grip with your tired hands, stand firm on your shaky legs, 13 and mark out a straight, smooth path for your feet so that those who follow you, though weak and lame, will not fall and hurt themselves but become strong. 14 Try to stay out of all quarrels, and seek to live a clean and holy life, for one who is not holy will not see the Lord. 15 Look after each other so that not one of you will fail to find God’s best blessings. Watch out that no bitterness takes root among you, for as it springs up it causes deep trouble, hurting many in their spiritual lives. 16 Watch out that no one becomes involved in sexual sin or becomes careless about God as Esau did: he traded his rights as the oldest son for a single meal. 17 And afterwards, when he wanted those rights back again, it was too late, even though he wept bitter tears of repentance. So remember, and be careful.


How Do We Get Born Again?


Through faith in Christ. This means that after you accept Christ, the Holy Spirit will come upon you, or, the Lord Jesus will baptize you into the Holy Spirit, and you will get a new heart and spirit.


Acts 2:38, 39

Authorized (King James) Version


38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.


The baptism into the Holy Spirit is called the Anointing (1 Jn. 2).


The Holy Spirit is like the wind. Man cannot tell where He is coming from or where He will go next (Jn. 3:6-8). Once you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit will fall upon you in His time. He may fall upon right after water baptism ( Acts 2:38, 39), or before water baptism (Acts 10:43-48). But if your church is dead, or, doing the Bible without the Holy Spirit and without being born again, then there is a simple prayer that brings the Holy Spirit to baptize you with His Presence that anyone can pray. It is called "The Sinner's Prayer", or, "The Prayer of Salvation".

Salvation and the Anointing come by faith. That prayer is Romans 10:9, 10. But to understand that salvation and the Anointing come by faith in the Bible, or, that the Bible brings the Holy Spirit and gets us born again, I will give you verses 6 thru 17.


Romans 10:6-17

Living Bible


6 But the salvation that comes through faith says, “You don’t need to search the heavens to find Christ and bring him down to help you,” and, 7 “You don’t need to go among the dead to bring Christ back to life again.” 8 For salvation that comes from trusting Christ—which is what we preach—is already within easy reach of each of us; in fact, it is as near as our own hearts and mouths. 9 For if you tell others with your own mouth that Jesus Christ is your Lord and believe in your own heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in his heart that a man becomes right with God; and with his mouth he tells others of his faith, confirming his salvation. 11 For the Scriptures tell us that no one who believes in Christ will ever be disappointed. 12 Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect: they all have the same Lord who generously gives his riches to all those who ask him for them. 13 Anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. 14 But how shall they ask him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? 15 And how will anyone go and tell them unless someone sends him? That is what the Scriptures are talking about when they say, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Gospel of peace with God and bring glad tidings of good things.” In other words, how welcome are those who come preaching God’s Good News! 16 But not everyone who hears the Good News has welcomed it, for Isaiah the prophet said, “Lord, who has believed me when I told them?” 17 Yet faith comes from listening to this Good News—the Good News about Christ.


Ask God for salvation. Pray verses 9 and 10 and you will be saved.


If you want to understand what the Bible means by "faith in Christ", I'll give you a Bible passage that will give you faith in Christ, because it will tell you what Christ did to save you.


1 Corinthians 15

Living Bible


1 Now let me remind you, brothers, of what the Gospel really is, for it has not changed—it is the same Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then and still do now, for your faith is squarely built upon this wonderful message; 2 and it is this Good News that saves you if you still firmly believe it, unless of course you never really believed it in the first place. 3 I passed on to you right from the first what had been told to me, that Christ died for our sins just as the Scriptures said he would, 4 and that he was buried, and that three days afterwards he arose from the grave just as the prophets foretold. 5 He was seen by Peter and later by the rest of “the Twelve.” 6 After that he was seen by more than five hundred Christian brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died by now. 7 Then James saw him, and later all the apostles. 8 Last of all I saw him too, long after the others, as though I had been born almost too late for this. 9 For I am the least worthy of all the apostles, and I shouldn’t even be called an apostle at all after the way I treated the church of God. 10 But whatever I am now it is all because God poured out such kindness and grace upon me—and not without results: for I have worked harder than all the other apostles, yet actually I wasn’t doing it, but God working in me, to bless me. 11 It makes no difference who worked the hardest, I or they; the important thing is that we preached the Gospel to you and you believed it. 12 But tell me this! Since you believe what we preach, that Christ rose from the dead, why are some of you saying that dead people will never come back to life again? 13 For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ must still be dead. 14 And if he is still dead, then all our preaching is useless and your trust in God is empty, worthless, hopeless; 15 and we apostles are all liars because we have said that God raised Christ from the grave, and of course that isn’t true if the dead do not come back to life again. 16 If they don’t, then Christ is still dead, 17 and you are very foolish to keep on trusting God to save you, and you are still under condemnation for your sins; 18 in that case, all Christians who have died are lost! 19 And if being a Christian is of value to us only now in this life, we are the most miserable of creatures. 20 But the fact is that Christ did actually rise from the dead and has become the first of millions who will come back to life again someday. 21 Death came into the world because of what one man (Adam) did, and it is because of what this other man (Christ) has done that now there is the resurrection from the dead. 22 Everyone dies because all of us are related to Adam, being members of his sinful race, and wherever there is sin, death results. But all who are related to Christ will rise again. 23 Each, however, in his own turn: Christ rose first; then when Christ comes back, all his people will become alive again. 24 After that the end will come when he will turn the Kingdom over to God the Father, having put down all enemies of every kind. 25 For Christ will be King until he has defeated all his enemies, 26 including the last enemy—death. This too must be defeated and ended. 27 For the rule and authority over all things has been given to Christ by his Father; except, of course, Christ does not rule over the Father himself, who gave him this power to rule. 28 When Christ has finally won the battle against all his enemies, then he, the Son of God, will put himself also under his Father’s orders, so that God who has given him the victory over everything else will be utterly supreme. 29 If the dead will not come back to life again, then what point is there in people being baptized for those who are gone? Why do it unless you believe that the dead will someday rise again? 30 And why should we ourselves be continually risking our lives, facing death hour by hour? 31 For it is a fact that I face death daily; that is as true as my pride in your growth in the Lord. 32 And what value was there in fighting wild beasts—those men of Ephesus—if it was only for what I gain in this life down here? If we will never live again after we die, then we might as well go and have ourselves a good time: let us eat, drink, and be merry. What’s the difference? For tomorrow we die, and that ends everything! 33 Don’t be fooled by those who say such things. If you listen to them you will start acting like them. 34 Get some sense and quit your sinning. For to your shame I say it; some of you are not even Christians at all and have never really known God. 35 But someone may ask, “How will the dead be brought back to life again? What kind of bodies will they have?” 36 What a foolish question! You will find the answer in your own garden! When you put a seed into the ground it doesn’t grow into a plant unless it “dies” first. 37 And when the green shoot comes up out of the seed, it is very different from the seed you first planted. For all you put into the ground is a dry little seed of wheat or whatever it is you are planting, 38 then God gives it a beautiful new body—just the kind he wants it to have; a different kind of plant grows from each kind of seed. 39 And just as there are different kinds of seeds and plants, so also there are different kinds of flesh. Humans, animals, fish, and birds are all different. 40 The angels in heaven have bodies far different from ours, and the beauty and the glory of their bodies is different from the beauty and the glory of ours. 41 The sun has one kind of glory while the moon and stars have another kind. And the stars differ from each other in their beauty and brightness. 42 In the same way, our earthly bodies which die and decay are different from the bodies we shall have when we come back to life again, for they will never die. 43 The bodies we have now embarrass us, for they become sick and die; but they will be full of glory when we come back to life again. Yes, they are weak, dying bodies now, but when we live again they will be full of strength. 44 They are just human bodies at death, but when they come back to life they will be superhuman bodies. For just as there are natural, human bodies, there are also supernatural, spiritual bodies. 45 The Scriptures tell us that the first man, Adam, was given a natural, human body but Christ* is more* than that, for he was life-giving Spirit. 46 First, then, we have these human bodies, and later on God gives us spiritual, heavenly bodies. 47 Adam was made from the dust of the earth, but Christ came from heaven above. 48 Every human being has a body just like Adam’s, made of dust, but all who become Christ’s will have the same kind of body as his—a body from heaven. 49 Just as each of us now has a body like Adam’s, so we shall some day have a body like Christ’s. 50 I tell you this, my brothers: an earthly body made of flesh and blood cannot get into God’s Kingdom. These perishable bodies of ours are not the right kind to live forever. 51 But I am telling you this strange and wonderful secret: we shall not all die, but we shall all be given new bodies! 52 It will all happen in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For there will be a trumpet blast from the sky, and all the Christians who have died will suddenly become alive, with new bodies that will never, never die; and then we who are still alive shall suddenly have new bodies too. 53 For our earthly bodies, the ones we have now that can die, must be transformed into heavenly bodies that cannot perish but will live forever. 54 When this happens, then at last this Scripture will come true—“Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55-56 O death, where then your victory? Where then your sting? For sin—the sting that causes death—will all be gone; and the law, which reveals our sins, will no longer be our judge. 57 How we thank God for all of this! It is he who makes us victorious through Jesus Christ our Lord! 58 So, my dear brothers, since future victory is sure, be strong and steady, always abounding in the Lord’s work, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever wasted as it would be if there were no resurrection.


Ask God for the Holy Spirit. Simply ask for the Holy Spirit to come live inside of you and He'll take care of the rest. This means that, once the Holy Spirit comes to live inside of you, that's when you'll get born again and make the Rapture.


Luke 11:1-13

Living Bible


1 Once when Jesus had been out praying, one of his disciples came to him as he finished and said, “Lord, teach us a prayer to recite just as John taught one to his disciples.” 2 And this is the prayer he taught them: “Father, may your name be honored for its holiness; send your Kingdom soon. 3 Give us our food day by day. 4 And forgive our sins—for we have forgiven those who sinned against us. And don’t allow us to be tempted.” 5-6 Then, teaching them more about prayer, he used this illustration: “Suppose you went to a friend’s house at midnight, wanting to borrow three loaves of bread. You would shout up to him, ‘A friend of mine has just arrived for a visit and I’ve nothing to give him to eat.’ 7 He would call down from his bedroom, ‘Please don’t ask me to get up. The door is locked for the night and we are all in bed. I just can’t help you this time.’ 8 “But I’ll tell you this—though he won’t do it as a friend, if you keep knocking long enough, he will get up and give you everything you want—just because of your persistence. 9 And so it is with prayer—keep on asking and you will keep on getting; keep on looking and you will keep on finding; knock and the door will be opened. 10 Everyone who asks, receives; all who seek, find; and the door is opened to everyone who knocks. 11 “You men who are fathers—if your boy asks for bread, do you give him a stone? If he asks for fish, do you give him a snake? 12 If he asks for an egg, do you give him a scorpion? Of course not! 13 “And if even sinful persons like yourselves give children what they need, don’t you realize that your heavenly Father will do at least as much, and give the Holy Spirit to those who ask for him?”


Now you can see from this Post, that salvation begins with a prayer of faith in the Lord Jesus, gets you anointed with the Presence of God, and ends with the Rapture, or, the Resurrection of the dead in Christ (The First Resurrection - Rev. 20). But from now to then, your faith must show your faith and work for the Lord in Church under the Anointing. You've got to start feeding His church. Remember how to do that? Like Mary and Martha. Hear the Word and Do the Word. Start working for the Lord after you get anointed. That's how you'll make the Rapture. Going to church and giving money to the pastor will then make a difference.


Matthew 24:43-51

Living Bible


23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 and shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
