A WORD OF COMFORT AND EDIFICATION FOR THIS HOUR

The Spirit says to my spirit: Even if the threat of all-out war in the Middle East should momentarily ease, even if disease and disaster should momentarily withdraw, DON'T THINK that Jesus DELAYS the Rapture. He could come even today, maybe in the very NEXT INSTANT.

Keep this at the front of your mind each day: NEVER HAS THE RAPTURE BEEN ANY CLOSER!

REMEMBER, this: The SIGNS and the UNFOLDING OF Bible prophecy declares "THE DAY OF GOD'S VENGEANCE" draws near; yes, the TIME of God's judgment HOVERS at the door.

Therefore, the RAPTURE will happen at ANY GOD-ORDAINED SPLIT-INSTANT, within the "same time period" as when these SIGNS are developing and increasing. The SIGNS themselves DON'T ANNOUNCE the Lord's appearing--BECAUSE HIS APPEARING WILL COME UPON YOU SUDDENLY, IN A TIME YOU ARE NOT EXPECTING...maybe BEFORE dinnertime, IN the middle of the night, or WHEN you are busy doing any number of daily chores or activities.

You will be OCCUPYING, doing those things placed in front of you, or sleeping soundly in your bed. The Lord will FLASH into the air, SHOUT with a loud voice--personally calling you, "Sharon (Mary, Bill, or whatever your name might be)"..... "_____COME UP HERE", and the TRUMPET will sound. In a micro-instant, you'll BE CHANGED into a glorified body and find yourself in the presence of Jesus. He will escort you TRIUMPHANTLY into the COURTS of heaven.

ZIP, FLASH, WHOOSH...the earth is behind you (how empty and unimportant it will seem as you see the BRIGHT SHINING of My face...ONLY I will fill your vision). YOU ENTER ETERNITY IN MY PRESENCE. All the splendor of the heavenly city lies resplendent in front of your wondering eyes. You can never KNOW the SPECIFIC MOMENT when I will descend...but know this, I STAND AT THE DOOR....I'M READY, AND SO ARE YOU, because My blood has covered you, and the rags of your sins have been replaced by a bright, white garment, given when you accepted the sacrifice I made for you on the cross.

DRAW NEAR TO ME IN SPIRIT...do not neglect such a POWERFUL SALVATION, because I have given you ALL that you will ever need. SEEK MY PRESENCE DAILY. TRUST ME. HAVE CONFIDENCE IN MY PROMISES. You have provision for your present earthly plane. Plus, THINGS THAT YOU CANNOT COMPREHEND await you IN MY PRESENCE when I shall gather you unto Myself.

But, in THIS HOUR, when wars and rumors of war rage, when men's minds dwell upon evil continually, when pestilences, and violence surround you and threatens to drain you...REMEMBER THIS, "I SEE. I KNOW. I COME QUICKLY. EXPECT THE CHANGE AT ANY MOMENT. I AM COMING.... LOOK FOR ME."

"And to WAIT for [Me], His Son, FROM HEAVEN, Whom He has raised from the dead, EVEN [I], JESUS, which delivered you FROM THE WRATH TO COME." 1 Thessalonians 1:10.

"The great day of the Lord is near, IT IS NEAR, and hastens greatly, even THE VOICE of the day of the Lord: the mighty men shall cry there bitterly." Zephaniah 1:14.

"For the day of the Lord IS NEAR upon all the heathen: as you [heathen] have done [wickedly], it shall be done unto you: your reward shall return upon your own head." Obadiah 1:15.

But to My Church, My chosen ekklesia: "For God has NOT appointed you to wrath, but to obtain salvation [deliverance] by [Me], your Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Thessalonians 5:9.

"For [I] the Lord, Myself, shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God [THE VOICE of My Father, as revealed in Exodus 19:19]: and the dead in Christ shall rise first [leave their burial places RESURRECTED]: Then you which are alive and remain [at this Rapture] shall be CAUGHT UP [harpazoed, snatched off the earth by force] together WITH them [who have been resurrected--and you shall be lifted off the earth] into the clouds, to MEET ME in the air: and so shall you be with Me [forever]. Wherefore COMFORT one another with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.

THE TIME IS ANYTIME. I AM COMING....

[MY ADDED COMMENT: I began this exhortation by describing HOW the Spirit has been talking to me in my spirit, and as I typed, the words SWITCHED to a DIRECT MESSAGE from the Lord, AS SEEN BY "the change" in pronouns. I leave it this way.

Jesus relays His truth to us, based upon His eternal WORD, the Bible, and even pointing out specific scriptures.

I do NOT know any specific dates, but the emphasis is to be constantly expecting Jesus, even as we continue our day by day activities. I know we can't be consciously thinking of His coming at every moment of every day (but I'm getting quite close to that ). But sometime, someday, and soon, I think, as we go about our daily activities, HE WILL COME. That's His promise.]

BE ENCOURAGED....
