Reasons There is a Rapture

The Rapture

“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 Christians who say there is a Mid-Tribulation Rapture and a Post-Tribulation Rapture. However, since the Tribulation is wrath, the Bible clearly says, “For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10) That’s really where their argument falls apart.

Some of them counter the argument for a  Mid-Tribulation Rapture and a Post-Tribulation Rapture by saying, “we need to go through the fire and be purified Brides of Christ.” The reason that is wrong is simply this: our salvation is through Grace not works. You only need to believe in Jesus Christ, His death and His resurrection to be saved. Works has nothing to do with it. All other religions have works to get to heaven, except the New Age that says you’re god. 

Other reasons:

-In Thessalonians 2, Paul had to assure the church at Thessolonia they were not in the Tribulation. They basically thought they were in the Tribulation due to the great persecution and suffering they were enduring. Why would they think they missed the Rapture if it doesn’t come first?

-Why would Jesus want His Bride (the church) to go through the Tribulation? The Trib is judgement and that’s reserved for non-believers.

-In Revelation, the church is mentioned until chapter 4 and then not mentioned again. 

-The Holy Spirit restrains evil and does not during the Tribulation. In 2 Thessalonians 2:6, Paul writes about this. The Holy Spirit restrains evil because Christians are on earth. Once we are gone, the Holy Spirit no longer has a reason to restrain evil. The only thing the Holy Spirit does during the Tribulation is perform salvation for those saved by faith and seal believers. There is no Baptism of the Holy Spirit during the Tribulation. If a person wants to be saved during the Tribulation, they will have to do so totally by faith.

Do you realize how terrible the Tribulation is going to be? Murder will be commonplace, because of the lack of food, cannibalism will go on, demonic possession will be common, natural disasters will be common, and then there are all those judgements that kill billions, not millions, of people.

-The Rapture is a reward for believing so you don’t go through God’s wrath. It’s not an escape, it is a reward.

-Jesus said the gates of hell shall not prevail against His church in Matthew 16:17-19. However, in Revelation, Satan will make war with the saints and conquer them in Revelation 13:7. Therefore, to make Jesus’s words true, the church cannot go through the Tribulation. The saints mentioned in 13:7 are the ones saved during the Tribulation. And, most of those saints will have to surrender their lives for the faith, sadly.

-We are currently in the Dispensation of Grace due to Jesus. The Tribulation is the Dispensation of Judgement. We are not appointed to wrath, but grace, so we will not be present during the Tribulation.

-Jesus is our Hope! If we had to go through the Tribulation, is there really any hope?

-Jesus is our Husband (Isaiah 54:5). When a person gets saved, they really are being married to Jesus in a spiritual sense because we are all the Bride of Christ. Before Jesus was crucified, He promised to go and prepare a place for us, His Bride, and to come and get us. (John 14:3) Again, why would He let His Bride go through the wrath of God during the Tribulation? That just doesn’t make sense.

Now, you can go in the Rapture, too!

We are at the end. That great getting up morning, called the Rapture, could happen at any time. The world is ripe for the Tribulation and the Great Tribulation. You don’t want to be here for God’s judgement and wrath poured out on mankind.

You are God's prized possession and Satan HATES YOU! Honestly, has Satan ever done anything for you? Really? Nope, not one thing! Jesus, on the other hand, has paved the way for us with complete and utter victory over everything, especially Satan and his ilk. When Jesus died on the Cross, he took away the sin of the world. We only have to repent and ask Jesus into our heart to be born again.

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Sinner's Prayer

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

The Holy Spirit Baptism is a gift. Just pray, "God, I accept the Holy Spirit as a gift and welcome Him into my being. Thank and praise you Jesus for the Holy Spirit." In these dark times, you need the Holy Spirit right after getting saved.

Amen and Hallelujah.

Some of my favorite Scriptures

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1) (KJV)

Jesus is the Word in so many ways. The King James Bible I read is Jesus in book form. It is what the Spirit of Jesus, the Holy Ghost, whispers in my mind. It is how you defeat the enemy. It is how you are made conquerors through Christ Jesus. In fact, we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:7) In fact, because we accepted Jesus, we are kings and ministers unto God. (Rev. 1:6) Jesus makes us kings and priests unto Him. Imagine that! The kings of the earth are nothing compared to us. We are kings in Jesus’s service. God gave me a dream once and this colonel was looking at me intently. Suddenly, he said to me, “Colonel.” I was floored. I went from corporal to captain to colonel God has shown me in dreams. Honestly, that’s an honor, but being a servant of Jesus is the most fulfilling.

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.” (Isaiah 54:17) (KJV)

The Holy Spirit said to me, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper” when I took the jab. Only one shot. I ain’t taking no more. But, I had no side effects. Whatever bad that is in it can’t touch me. Also, as in Psalms 91, I dwell in the shadow of the Most High God. Evil can’t destroy me. In fact, it literally says evil cannot touch you if you dwell in the shadow of the Most High God.

“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” (John 10:28) (KJV)

Nothing on this earth can pluck me out of the hand of my husband, Jesus Christ. NO ONE!

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) (KJV)

I am NOTHING without Jesus Christ. He gave my identity, He gave me purpose, He gave me a love I don’t understand that gets sweeter everyday!

“For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.” (Isaiah 54:5) (KJV)

Jesus is my Husband. There are other Scriptures that say we are the Bride of Christ. So, therefore, Jesus is my Husband.

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” (John 16:13) (KJV)

The Holy Spirit will guide me into all truth, and show me things to come. He has. Oh, He has. And, He loves being called Jesus’s Spirit. Who do you think the Holy Spirit is? Jesus! He has comforted me through demonic attack after demonic attack. He’s loved me completely unlike any human ever could.

“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” (Matt. 11:12) (KJV)

It’s how I started to witness to other Transgender people. It’s been a wild ride. The Holy Spirit has led me the whole way. God loves everyone. I honestly don’t know anyone else doing what God led me to do. Basically, the verse means, witness to others despite what any man says, lift Jesus up and Jesus will draw all men unto Him. (John 12:32) A lot of seeds have been planted worldwide from this blog. I hope and pray lots have come to the saving grace of Jesus Christ, or will do so. I know the devil hates this blog, and me, so I take it many have been touched by Jesus. And, that’s all my Husband’s doing, not mine. He accepted me as I am. He can accept you, too. I’m a nun, and a Christian and a Bride of Christ. That’s all I am.

“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,” (Revelation 12:7) (KJV)

It is so cinematic and breathtaking. But, Satan is cast out of heaven and can no longer accuse the brethren and Satan is cast down on the ones on earth with wrath because his time is short. But, God knows I want to see Michael and his angels cast Satan and his ilk out of heaven.

“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of bthe dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and cset a seal on him, dso that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.” (Rev. 20:1-3) (KJV)

I think it is absolutely hilarious it is an angel, not Michael, the ark angel, that chains Satan and tosses him into hell. An ordinary angel, no offense to him whatsoever. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL And, God is gonna laugh at his calamity. God is going to laugh at the calamity of all that reject Him. (Proverbs 1:26-28) That’s a sobering thought. Once, I was making fun of scam artist Peter Popoff and his “miracle water” and the Holy Spirit was laughing with me and said, “one day I’m gonna laugh at his calamity.” I said, “Whoa! I hope you never get mad at me!”
