Are You Rapture Ready?

Are You Rapture Ready?
By Chris Schang

One of the most serious questions people can ask themselves today is "Are you rapture ready?" The reason for this is that with all the end times signs popping up around us, it is important that people ask themselves the question that if Jesus were to call home believers to Heaven today, would you go up in the rapture or would you be left behind to meet the Antichrist and go through the terrible seven year tribulation period? This is a question everyone must ask themselves as their eternal salvation is at stake.

Now, the rapture of the church is for believers in Jesus Christ who have made a genuine faith decision to accept the blood atonement of Jesus Christ on the Cross. The soon to be sudden disappearance of church age believers is often referred to as the "blessed hope" as it is God's promise to spare believers of the wrath to come:

1Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ...

As we can see from above the church has the distinct promise from the Lord to be saved from the time and place of his wrath. What exactly is the time and place of God's wrath? The answer is found in what is known as the "Time of Jacob's Trouble" which is another term for the seven year tribulation period. The time period is described as the worse 7 year period ever seen on the Earth. However, the church will be called up to Heaven before the dreaded and terrible Day of the Lord or seven year tribulation period.

Those people who have not accepted the FREE gift of salvation from God will be destined to go through this terrible time of God's wrath that will be poured out on Earth on disobeying Israel and unrepentant sinners. The purpose of the Tribulation period is to punish as well as call unbelievers to come to faith in Jesus Christ. Sadly, many people today will choose not to be rapture ready but instead they will choose to be wicked and unyielding to God who calls people to salvation through Jesus Christ. God has only one place that he has said that he will meet sinful men and save them. And that is at the foot of the Cross. Unfortunately, many will choose not to accept the remedy God has provided and will try to earn, buy, etc. their way to Heaven without going through the Cross. This is simply foolishness and it leads to a dead end.

The purpose of this article is to help people come to the loving and saving faith of the Lord Jesus and in turn be rapture ready for when God gives the signal to Jesus to go and get the church. Being rapture ready is very simple and it is strongly encouraged that people do not delay in making a decision for Jesus Christ. With a genuine heart and a cry out to God, one can be saved through the precious blood of Jesus Christ. But beware, simply repeating the words of a sinner's prayer will not save you. You must be sincere and willing to yield to the Lord. The Lord gave his all on the Cross in order to pay the price of sin, a price that none of us could pay on our own. So in return, Jesus wants nothing less than all of us.

The Bible says that the day of salvation is today, so please do not put off this very important decision for Jesus Christ. Your eternal destiny weighs in the balance. Get rapture ready today by accepting the FREE offer of salvation through Jesus Christ. For tomorrow could be too late.

God bless.
