Do you think I (or we) still have time or is it too late?

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by autumn oddity, Aug 13, 2015.

  1. By this I'm talking about being rapture ready ...

    There's alot of hub bub circling around the month of September... and many claim we are on the cusp of His more than ever..

    Despite what people say thing I that He is coming...and could come at anytime...

    For me, I feel so undone... So unprepared...i have no idea where to start... Alot of things that happened,pushed me from God..however..i guess what spurred my return to god is a dream I had. It was happened last night...

    In it was close to the rapture,infact itd be the next former pastor and some one else were really happy abt his return... I wanted to go too but couldn't..i was distraught BC I didn't want to be left...the other person assured me( I forgot what she said)... Anywho...after they disappeared... I was alone the scene changed ... I was in what looked to be some type of housing ,similar to a brothel... There were lots of kids and everyday someone died... And I would always somehow try T extend my life... But I knew in the end..if I didn't give up my life.whether I made I to heaven was uncertain. The men over us looked Arab, I guess (no offense.its just a dream) and the last time I tried to have death pass over me, they were like..ok...if you don't want to do that..this is the other option...

    I was tied to a post and wiped ..i think my arms and what not were bloody...and I know what ill take the other option...

    And when I passed, I was in another place, the area across from me ,the wall I guess, was yellow and had purple scripture across it..telling about who Jesus was and what not and to the left were purple staircase...

    That's it...ofcourse this could have been from the fact I ate a whole lot of junk before bed...

    Either way I feel now is the time to get right...while I have a few days before school starts and I get busy again

    Thing is I just don't know where to start, reading and praying seem so was..i feel I should do more.

    Anyway..lets get the discussion rolling.
  2. Well Pancakes- I think this may be the real deal coming up.

    Exact "day"? I have no idea-but I think it is highly probable.

    What can we do? Try to live like Christ and tell the lost about Christ before it's too late.

    We don't have to cram every doctrine down their throats; a simple 'Jesus loves you' is spreading the Gospel.....

  3. Idk if I can get cleaned up in time
  4. LOL: NOPE! You can't.....

    That's why Jesus- 'Yeshua' died on the cross, you will never be 'holy' (perfect) on earth. But what you can do is have a repentant heart and seek God's ways. Best sermon Jesus preached:

    Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

    If we all had to be perfect before going to heaven-heaven would be pretty empty....

    It is the heart condition that is important, it shows in our fruits....
    chili, Abdicate, KingJ and 2 others say Amen and like this.
  5. I know I'm saying idk if ill be clean in time...
  6. I guess I am not 100% sure about what you mean by that?
  7. Pancakes the awful and terrifying truth of the whole matter is that there will be NO secret rapture whereby "believers" will be beamed up with Jesus whilst the great majority of the world's population are supposedly left behind.
    Jesus is coming back in power and glory to save the world from utter and total annihilation (nuclear war) - Jesus is coming back to gather the saints - those who worship in spirit and truth [John 4].
    We are called to keep the faith and to help others believe in the Bible gospel and salvation.
    Do the work of an evangelist by telling others of your hope in Jesus Christ.
    Luke 21: 34-36 GNB
    "Be careful not to let yourselves become occupied with too much feasting and drinking and with the worries of this life,
    or that Day may suddenly catch you like a trap. For it will come upon all people everywhere on earth.
    Be on watch and pray always that you will have the strength to go safely through all those things that will happen and to stand before the Son of Man."
    that Day = the Day of the Lord - His return
  8. What do you mean "clean in time"???

    If you have received Jesus as your Saviour and Lord, then you have been washed in the blood of Jesus, your sins are far from you, and God has no remembrance of any of them. You are already clean! Though your sins were as scarlet, you are now washed whiter than snow!

    Isaiah 1:18
    “Come now, let’s settle this,”
    says the Lord.
    “Though your sins are like scarlet,
    I will make them as white as snow.
    Though they are red like crimson,
    I will make them as white as wool.

    Do you think you have to do something to make yourself ready to face God? That, my dear, is a false religious mindset based on works for righteousness, and that is not from God.

    Receive Jesus by faith and speak it out, and it will be like engraving it in stone! By faith we become sons and daughters of God! He doesn't overturn His adoptions.

    Romans 10:9-10
    that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

  9. No Jesus is not coming back in september. So relax and just begin to live your life according to the Word. You and all of us have much to do first. And the blood of Jesus has made you clean, like euphemia says. Its now your responsibility to make Him Lord of your life, and live the ways of God.

  10. Ok lets see if you pass the test. Please answer with a yes or a no.

    1. Are you living in a mortal sin?
    2. Do you approve of those who do mortal sins?
    3. Do you feel the need to repent often? (of all and any sin).
    4. If you were standing next to Jesus on the cross would you want to defend Him from those mocking and hurting Him?
    5. Do you feel like your heart is hardening toward God / ie are you removing Him from your thoughts?

    Some thoughts to support these questions:
    1 & 2. Genuine love for God is to hate what is evil. Rom 12:9. If we continue in / approve of those who commit mortal sins it is a safe bet we don't hate what is evil.
    3. Paul says he does what he hates Rom 7:15. You don't hate something if you don't desire repenting of it.
    4. Look at the un warranted aggression and hatred of the unsaved towards Jesus even today. Those that are of their father the devil hate Jesus simply for being Jesus. Do you hate Jesus?
    5. This is something we need to watch every second of everyday. Remove God from your thoughts = we stop submitting to His will for our lives. We start the day with ''my will be done'' and not ''God's will be done''.

    We can believe we are saved all we want. It is nothing but belief until we judge ourselves properly: 1 Cor 11:31 But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged.
  11. So you KNOW that for sure? Watch, for he comes like a thief in the night....

    Besides, any single person could die at any single moment and be sent to the judgement hall....praise be to God for His Mercy!

    No; I am not suggesting we live paranoid-but prepared to see the LORD-which is to say: secure in our salvation. (I find that difficult to do some days.)

  12. Oh don't get me wrong...I am fully ready when He returns, but i choose to believe the Word of God that says no man knows the time or the hour when Jesus will return. Only the Father knows. And i choose to believe that God is not done yet working in this earth. There is much more for the Body of Christ to do. And most people who believe that God is returning in Sept are busy getting ready and not paying much attention to what God has commissioned them to do.

  13. Never mind the dates, just turn to Jesus Christ, repent and do it now! God bless you!

  14. Live for today my sister!!!

    The idea of the Lords 2nd Coming is all about "comfort".

    Personally I am not interested in how excited anyone is over the Rapture of believers. My concern would be to know how you are living in the down and dirty world of today???

    If we take care of ourselves and loved one today, the Lord Jesus will take care of us when He comes and that alone should give us comfort, peace and joy!
  15. And the fact that some people are expounding on Sept. of this year only confirms the fact that nothing will happen in Sept.

    God says NO ONE knows so the idea that someone would predict means that it can not take place.

  16. How do you envision the end? What scenario do you see playing out? I really want to know. When the Lord does come, what will be said before that day? We're all trying to understand the times no more than John did about Jesus. Today there are Simeons and Annas watching, learning and waiting. There are salesmen waiting for the latest tickle news for the sheepeople. Five of the seven feasts have been fulfilled on God's feast days. What makes you think the last two will be different? I believe your ignoring tens of verses because of one, thereby creating a vale of misunderstanding. I believe He will come on a Tishri. As we get closer to the event we will learn more and that is what is happening. I say because you don't expect He'll come in September, that's when He'll come, Luke 12:40.:D

    I hope. If not I'll continue as I have every Tishri for 48 years. ;)

  17. Take the time to recommit your whole life to Jesus and ask Him to help you to make Him Lord of your life. Truly, 100%, lock stock and barrel Lord of your life. Right now is the time to not ignore God's tapping on the door to your heart. If Jesus should tarry...then things in this world are going to get worse, and being tortured to try to get one to renounce Christ is not what Jesus wants to see you go through. Nor does He desire for you to cower down and hide, denying Him while others are being jailed or what not for their belief in Christ. The time for being strong in Jesus is now, the time to grow and commune with Him is now. Time to let go of all of the worldly ways and attitudes. Time to turn off the tv and get in the Word and seek first the kingdom of God (mt 6:33). That means put him first in everything :) Today is that day. Time is to short to delay.

    Blessings, i am praying for God to lead and guide you,:)

  18. True
  19. None of us will ever be "clean" in this life by our own means. We are washed by the blood, but while in this world we will all sin. This is why we have grace. Just pursue God, and don't worry about the rapture dates. It'll happen in God's timing.

    Remember that every generation thinks that the rapture will happen in their lifetime. So far all of them have been wrong.

  20. I hope that you are not put off by my comments. I certainly do not mean to challege you or your opinions. I do not agree with you, no more and no less.

    Now, you asked me so I will be glad to respond to your challenge. hat do I envision????

    I just think that Matthew 24:35-38 means what it says....
    "Heaven and earth shall pasmy words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no not the angels of heaven, BUT MY FATHER ONLY.
    But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
    For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking and marrying and giviving in marriage until the day that Noah entered into the Ark".

    For sure, "signs" are indications that Christ is about to come again to this earth. I would say that "technically" these signs refer to the revelation of Christ and not the Rapture.

    There are obvious signs during the 7 year Tribulation before the "revelation", but there are actrually no signs that precede the Rapture. THAT IS MY OPINION and anyone and everyone is welcome to disagree with that.

    Having said that, I would also say that there are cionditions which stronlely suggest that the Rapture is just around the coener. The point is again IMO, NO ONE will ever know the date/time of Jesus' return until He comes. We can look at and study and come up with all kinds of ideas and festivals and feasts but IMO nothing will confirm the return of Christ so that we can say a certain day or month or year will be acceptable.

    You asked me and that is my understanding. Now there are things happening all around us to suggest that His return may be getting very close.

    1. Israel was established back into the Holy Land on May 14th, 1948.
    2. Lawlessness going more and more rampant.
    3. Increase in apostasy.
    4. The socio-religious climate preparing for a one world church.
    5. Life threatening conditions such as atomic/neculear weapons.

    These things have been with us for a long time but never in the history of the world have they all come together at one time.

    IMO, the verses I posted above warn again any date setting for the return of Christ. ONLY the FATHER knowes and He has not told us. I believe just as these Scriptures stipulate about Noah's day, the people were going about there normal everyday living. They were a generation just like today. Pleasure seeking and self indulgence. Then boom..........
    The rains came and judgment fell.

    The Ark was a picture of the Rapture for those who believe and Christ is the Ark we have today. If we are IN Christ as was Noah's family in the Ark, we shallbe Raptured at a time when we think not.

    You asked me, and that is my thinking, and what I envision.;)
