DOMINION OVER DARKNESS (PART IX) HOW TO STAY RAPTURE READY
There is a tendency to lower standards when it comes to the things of God; things that ordinarily, people will not do in their business transactions, they tend to do in the things of God. But let me ask this question – who deserves the best? Why do we always give God rejects? Why do we always want to serve him according to our own terms? Who is the boss? The Church is not ready for the rapture; meanwhile, the rapture is the next major event that will happen. Please, be serious in your walk with God.
In our last message in this series, we saw that God’s prescription for dominion over the antichrist is the rapture. God always has a joker; He is always ahead of the devil. God is a master strategist and His strategy is that before the reign of the antichrist with his draconian decrees and torments, He would have taken his own (the true Church). Luke 21:34-36 “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man”. Jesus is saying that you should not allow yourself to be carried away by the affairs of this world, by its pursuits or its lust. Some people will be so fixated chasing after these things that they will not know when the trumpet will sound. For them, it will be business as usual.
The following are truths concerning the rapture and the second coming of Christ established both by the word of God and by recent revelations:-
- Many people will sleep and become unaware because the Lord appears to delay His coming. If there is one airlift you must not miss, it is the rapture. It is the greatest airlift that will happen. The reason why many will fold their hands and be left behind is because the Lord seems to delay His coming.
- The stage is set for the physical manifestation of the antichrist; the spirit of the antichrist is at work and also at war. All he needs to do now is to put on flesh. Some students of prophecy believe that he has already been born and probably in one of the best universities in the world right now waiting for the appointed time to take over political, spiritual and economic power. He is going to be the concentration of all satanic powers.
