    As we rush headlong toward the end of the End Times, there are habits we can incorporate to insure that we are "Rapture ready." If you knew the Rapture would happen next week, what would you do differently now?

    Mat 13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
    Mat 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
    Mat 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
    Mat 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
    Mat 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
    Mat 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
    Mat 13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
    In the above scripture we see that it is the tares that are gathered and burned.

    In the old testament it speaks of rapture, that has happen. It was the rapture of all of the children of Israel that had passed away while under the 'Age of Law'. In today's 'Age of Grace' when a Christian dies they go on to heaven. The other normal people just go to the grave.

    As you see above there is an 'End of the World', and when that happens all the wicked will be burned.

    I should also point out, the wicked are the devil's children. Yes, there are children of 'Cain' here on earth today.

    While I don't profess to know when the Rapture will occur, I am however persuaded to believe that a study of the Israelites exodus from Egypt gives us a clue about how it may unfold.

    Show me from scripture that the rapture is going to happen at all. Not the final judgement, that's clear. The rapture is a fairly new doctrine and iffy at best biblically.

    Nothing: The only thing one can do to be ready is to live in Christ. We can't just run up a treasure chest of mementos in the last minute to take with us when we go on our way. The Rapture is really for Christians who've been preparing for it all along.

    Sure, someone may choose Christ on the last day to be prepared for eternity. But really, the hope of the Church is the thing we are to work towards over a period of time. We don't live with the idea it can happen any day or week, but rather, we minister the word of God to fellow Christians, and share the Gospel message to the Lost.

    Our job today is to focus on that job, and not live with the expectation that there is no tomorrow. There is tomorrow right now, and the Rapture will be the culmination of a long process of divine reckoning over our lives. Today is the opportunity to get people ready for Him, and to enable them to help others get ready, as well. If we live for Him, the Rapture will come as a due reward.

    Very good. We must be aware of dramatic events to come and stand strong in our faith thru it all.

    The so called 'rapture' is simply the gathering of those who remain alive, to Jesus when He Returns. 1 Thess 4:14-17, Matthew 24:30-31 Those who kept their faith, will always be with Him; on earth.

    The Devil's world has already started to agonize, it is in agony as a whole, and is going to get worse, and will get worse exceedingly, from now on. 2020 was a hideous year, very terrible, but 2021 will be very very worse than 2020, it will be the first flames of hell's fire, yeah, hell's fire. But it is the beginning of sorrows.

    2 Peter 3:v.7 and 10-14

    7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto FIRE against the Day of Judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
    10 ... the heavens -the first and the second heavens- shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the WORKS that are therein shall be burned up.
    11 Seeing then that all these things shall be DISSOLVED, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
    12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the Day of GOD, wherein the heavens being on FIRE shall be DISSOLVED -the first and the second heavens, behold, the third heaven is at door- , and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
    13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for NEW heavens-THE THIRD HEAVEN -1000 years- AND AFTER THE MILLENNIUM THE HEAVEN OF THE HEAVENS-THE ETERNITY- and a new earth-new Israel-, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
    14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

    Get ready because the worse comes soon, the days will be shortened.

    I am somewhat in agreement with you...
    I firmly believe that all prophesy pertaining to Israel must come to pass before Jesus return....
    Also, God told me to keep my eyes on Israel.....all events concerning Israel are leading us to His return...
    I read last week where Israel was bombing Damascus...this prophesy must come to pass...Damascus will become a ruinous heap and be a city no more...never to be rebuilt again.
    Isn't it ironic that Damascus is the oldest city still standing since the OT times....it has been destroyed but was rebuilt. This time is different.

    Your right, no rapture!
    The rapture happened for those under Law when Jesus went to the cross. We, Christians, go to be with the Lord when our body dies.

    Do you agree that the Two Witnesses will go up in a Rapture?

    Revelation 11
    [11] And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them [the Two Witnesses], and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
    [12] And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
