WHICH LOOK DO YOU THINK JESUS IS GOING TO TAKE IN THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH?
WHAT THE BRIDE IS LIKE:
Can’t stop thinking about and talking about JESUS. Reading the Bible is a priority of the day. The bride wakes up thinking about HIM and goes to bed thinking about HIM. The bride wants to tell others about HIM because the bride does not want anyone to perish. The bride is watching and waiting for the LORD’s return and is finding it hard to be patient…Prays fervently for themselves and their loved ones and asks the LORD to help them be rapture ready and filled with the HOLY SPIRIT. Approaches the LORD with fear and trembling knowing HE is a very HOLY GOD. Walks in humility and forgiveness.
WHAT LUKEWARM IS LIKE:
Calls themselves a Christian but God is just another interest on the long list of hobbies, interests, and things to do list….If one gets around to it and maybe the last thing of the day reads the Bible, doesn’t talk about GOD unless someone else brings HIM up first–wouldn’t want to embarrass themselves or impose their beliefs on others so just won’t talk about HIM. Still into those same hobbies–you know those ones that take up a lot of time or are very consuming, maybe spends the evening at a bar (no intention of evangelizing anyone just drinking with friends), reads secular magazines that are not GOD honoring, still watching the same TV shows that highlight sex and infidelity or gay lifestyle or ungodly language. Church on Sunday and leading a double lifestyle the rest of the week….dresses to the ‘hilt’ instead of pursuing modesty and humility….pursues mammon and does not care about keeping the Sabbath holy. Holds onto grudges, gossips…pursuing mammon.
NO ONE IS GOING TO LOOK 100% ONE WAY OR THE OTHER ALL THE TIME. THE LORD IS LOOKING FOR A BRIDE WHO IS ‘SOLD OUT TO HIM’ WALKS IN HUMILITY AND IS REPENTANT AND FORGIVING AND WHEN SHE MESSES UP COMES BACK TO HIM WITH A REPENTANT HEART READY TO START ANEW. WHICH LOOK DO YOU WANT TO REFLECT? DO YOU WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND OR TAKEN IN THE GREATEST RESCUE MISSION EVER?
