RAPTURE TALK

MERRY MONDAY BY PARRIS-

“Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. All these are the beginning of sorrows”

Matt. 24:3

Frank and I grew up as young Christians thinking about the rapture. In the Jesus Movement, songs were sung and Christians witnessed with such expectancy that Christ would return at any moment. At our Bible school in California, the students would gather to debate if they believed in a post or pre-tribulation rapture. When we came to New Orleans to start our church, we showed the movies, “THE THIEF IN THE NIGHT” and “THE DISTANT THUNDER” which terrified us all and many received the Lord through this. Even at my wedding, I walked down the aisle to all of us singing “I Wish We’d All Been Ready”. The song went like this:

“A man and wife asleep in bed

She hears a noise and turns her head he’s gone

I wish we’d all been ready

Two men walking up a hill

One disappears and one’s left standing still

I wish we’d all been ready”

Larry Norman

Last Thursday Frank and I had yet another rapture conversation. What if Christ came, what if the tribulation clock has been started with the eclipse, the three hurricanes back to back, the earthquakes and the world gone upside down with hate, nuclear bombs threats and rioting. We know his day draws near and where will you be when you see him face to face? Did I do all that I could within my power? Has my light grown dim? Have I backed off the gospel to become more pleasing to the world? We feel deeply that there will be a ingathering of more souls. Robert Murray McCheyne said, “Close upon the back of a judgment period, the Holy Spirit descends upon a whole community as “a rushing mighty wind” (Act 2:2), like “floods upon the dry ground” (Isa 44:3), or “like rain upon the mown grass” (Psa 72:6). The great heart of society begins to heave and palpitate as the heart of one man—and myriads of careless sinners are arrested, alarmed, filled with anxiety about salvation, and turned simultaneously to look on Him Whom they have pierced, and mourn those sins that pierced Him and brought Him to “those sins that pierced Him and brought Him to the dust of death.”

“The father spoke, the demons dined

How could you have been so blind?

There’s no time to change your mind

The son has come and you’ve been left behind”

Norman

  1. Amen! You are hearing from the Lord. Thank you Jesus.
    He woke me up after/during the solar eclipse. I have been spiritually sleeping, in a coma.
    This weekend, we just came out of battle. Spirtually battle, the enemy knows his time is short and is on a prowl. We are called to stay alert because we are children of the light. For we will not be overtaken/ surprised like the children of the darkness or those that are sleeping. Pray that God takes the hammer against the stone heart. He confirmed that the disabled and childlike will see the Kingdom. I feel he is waken these people up RIGHT NOW. BECAUSE the words they are speaking and hearing are from him. But again, the enemy knows his time is short and we ought to test all spirits.

    I remember attenting your church and you saying we have access to the living water, drink. My brain knew that was possible but never got there. Today, this living waterfall is gushing and the world thinks I have lost my mind. Even some brothers and sisters in Christ! I am praying this for them.“And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” – Ezekiel 36:26

    Thank you for staying obedient. God reminded me of his appointed times and how we need to pay attention. The next feast is September 30/ October 1. No man knows the day or time, but I truly believe we are in the end times. It would make sense that these last 7 days, if that does mean it’s coming that soon, would be an awaking to the child like. Open your mouths children, many will be belief once this take place. Unfortunately, they will have hell on earth for some time, but can still can receive salvation and heart change. Jesus is using his children for these final imprints before it happens.

  2. I have been a participant in tribulation discussions, some of which I felt my end draw near as sides were taken and I found myself in the position of tie breaker.
    Then one day during prayer, I asked a brother in Christ to keep in prayer since that very night the small group was studying 2 Thessalonians and once again I would be cannon fodder for both sides. Pre-trib, mid-trib or post-trib was swirling in my head. He offered another option. I thought, “Oh GREAT, as if three were not enough. He now threw out “pan-trib”. Being a child of God, it will all pan out.
    Always getting a laugh it gives a break in the heated discussion for me to say let’s better spend our time spreading the gospel, preparing the way!

    1. God told me the rapture will happen right before nuclear war, and the enemy will use that to deceive. The nuclear war is why some disappeared. My phone has turned on and off and he keeps stopping this from
