SPREADING THE WORD WITHOUT SAYING A WORD MINISTRY

THE COMING RAPTURE
WE HAVE ONE HOPE IN THIS WORLD, THAT HOPE IS IN JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR!!! 1 Thessalonians 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words. Hebrews 6:11 And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end. Titus 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.
THE WORD “RAPTURE” MEANS “CAUGHT UP”, ALTHOUGH THE WORD RAPTURE DOES NOT APPEAR ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE, THE WORD OF GOD SAYS, 1 Thessalonians 4:17 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.
CHRIST JESUS ASSURES US THAT HEAVEN AWAITS US AS BELIEVERS IN HIM!!! John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
PAUL TELLS US IN 1 Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 1 Corinthians 15:52 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 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
PAUL FURTHER EXPLAINS IN 1 Thessalonians 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 1 Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 1 Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 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: 1 Thessalonians 4:17 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 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
NO DOUBT, JESUS WILL RETURN FOR THE BODY OF TRUE BELIEVERS IN CHRIS JESUS!!! 2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him. Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
WE HAVE TO BE READY FOR THE RETURN OF JESUS, BECAUSE NO MAN KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR OF THE RETURN OF CHRIST JESUS FOR HIS BRIDE!!! Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matthew 24:38 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, Matthew 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matthew 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Matthew 24:41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Matthew 24:43 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. Matthew 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. LUKE 17:24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
GOD WORKS IN PATTERNS, AGAIN 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. REMEMBER GOD’S WRATH IS ONLY FOR THE UNSAVED, Colossians 3:6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience. 2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 2 Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; GOD REMOVED ONLY NOAH AND HIS FAMILY THEN DESTROYED THE WICKED!!! 2 Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 2 Peter 2:7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: Luke 17:32 Remember Lot’s wife. LOT’S WIFE LOOKED BACK AND WAS TURNED TO A PILLAR OF SALT, ONLY LOT AND HIS DAUGHTERS WERE SAVED!!! 2 Peter 2:8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 2 Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.
GOD DOESN’T CHANGE, HE REMOVED THE RIGHTEOUS BEFORE DESTRUCTION THEN AND HE WILL DO THE SAME NOW!!Hebrews: 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
JESUS CHOSE US IN HIM BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD!!! Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Ephesians 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, Ephesians 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. Acts 13:48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. John 1:12 But as many as received him (Jesus), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.
1 Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God “by the foolishness of preaching” to save them that believe.
