How Close Are We?

As I watched the video of Mr Obama and Mr Netanyahu speaking today I lost count of the number of time the words "Israel, peace, and security" were used. Anyone watching that speech and hearing those words with any sense of biblical discernment should have this screaming inside of them:

1 Thessalonians 5:3

While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly,
as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape

Note with me please, the words "and THEY will not escape......" But what about us, will we escape? If you are "in Christ" and found worthy then you certainly will escape all:

Luke 21:34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. 35For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

The rapture of the church is the Bride of Christ going to heaven to the place the Bridegroom has prepared for her. The pre-tribulation rapture is a fact, it is absolutely positively CERTAIN. Forget the naysayers, forget the debates, forget the disputing. Make up your mind what you believe commit to it with your whole heart. Trust the Lord to lead you into all truth. Ask Him to give you revelation of His Word.

Its time to get excited. It is time to rekindle hope and gladness and joy and comfort and peace about the certainty that WE WILL NOT BE HERE when all hell breaks loose. We will be in heaven with our Lord. Read Revelation 5 and you will see redeemed and rewarded men in heaven from every tribe tongue language and nation. There is one and only one way they arrive there and that is the open door in heaven in Rev 4, allowing the raptured church to enter heaven with the Bridegroom.

Comfort your hearts and be very very encouraged today. Be certain of what you believe. Hold onto your faith and your blessed hope that our Savior God, our Blessed Redeemer draws nigh. Oh glory to God!!!!!

time to get ready for work..grace and peace
