August 16 – Rapture Will Happen Swiftly

Daily Bible Life

Rapture simply means the transportation of the saints to heaven. That is, the believers of Jesus Christ will witness his second coming, and they will be transported to heaven. Only those who have confessed their faith in Jesus Christ (whether dead or alive) Will be transported to heaven. The Bible declares: “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh, and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory” (1 Corinthians 15:50-55).

 

Lesson:

The rapture will remain a believer’s hope. The experience will be instantaneous, but permanently gratifying for Christians. People who have confessed their faith in Jesus Christ will escape this present sinful world, and be transported to heaven to enjoy eternal life with God. The scripture affirmed; “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 15:52).

However, despite the beautiful experience that rapture will create for God’s saints, unbelievers will not partake in it. People who have refused to confess Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior will be disallowed from heaven! God will cast unrepentant sinners to hell fire where they shall live in pain and sorrow. Unbelievers will permanently share hell fire with Satan.

A person may not have an opportunity to reverse his unbelieving decision during rapture since the event will be instant. It is, therefore, important that all unbelievers make immediate decisions and confess Jesus Christ as their Lord before it is too late. If you want to inherit heaven, avoid procrastinating and make an immediate decision to confess Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Rapture or death can happen at any moment, therefore confess Jesus Christ today and be saved! (Romans 10:9-10).

 

Prayer:

Dear Jesus Christ, I understand that you will return to earth soon to transport your saints to heaven. Therefore, I declare my faith in you today! I believe that you are the Son of God sent to save the world. I confess you, Jesus Christ, as my personal Lord and Savior. Henceforth, I will devote my complete life to serving you. Please write my name in the book of life, and make heaven my permanent home. For in your precious name, Jesus Christ, I have prayed. Amen!
