Jesus Christ has an amazing gift for you- and guess what? IT’S FREE! However, for Him to buy it for you, He needed to die probably one of the most horrible deaths in history. So, what is this amazing, free gift? Your own Salvation!
At the beginning of the world, there was no death, no pain, no sorrow- the world was a perfect world or, as The Lord God said, “Very Good”. However, all that changed due to sin. When Satan tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden, sin entered into the world. Death, pain, sorrow- you name it- came in. Our sins separated us from The Holy and Just God. However, as John 3:16 says:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 KJV.
God loves us! He loves us so much, that he gave his ONE AND ONLY SON, to die on the Cross. Amazing, isn’t it? Then God rose him up from the dead and, a few days later, Jesus went back to be with him, in the clouds. W-O-W!!!! Wow, wow, wow, wow! All you have to do is believe. Just believe with all your heart that He died and rose again three days later. Just believe that He is Lord and that He is God. It is just so easy but, due to a fallen world, most people don’t want this free gift.
Get saved now, before it is too late. For one day, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” 1 Corinthians 15:52. KJV. This is the Rapture.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:”
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. KJV”
The “dead in Christ” are the people who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ and have received Him as their Personal Saviour and have since died. Then the people “which are alive and remain”, the people who also have received Him as their Personal Saviour, but are still alive, shall be taken up to Heaven. Here’s what the Rapture would be like to a Born Again Christen still alive when the Rapture happens:
“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” Revelation 4:1.
What an amazing day this will be!
However, for those left behind, they shall have to go through 7 years of the worse times in human history. This time will be called “The Time of Jacob’s Trouble.”
Let’s just stop here a moment and think about all you have read so far.
If you don’t have a KJV Bible, please go here: http://kingjamesbibleonline.org/
Sometime in this 7-year period, a man called the Antichrist will be released onto the Earth. He will be SO against God, that even if you OWN a Bible, you will be killed. (shivers). However, that is not the only thing. The Antichrist will also bring out what the Bible calls “The Mark of The Beast.” Now, this “Mark” will probably be a tiny microchip that will be implanted into either your forehead or your hand.
IF YOU GET THIS MARK, GOD WILL NOT FORGIVE YOU AND YOU WILL BURN IN HELL FOREVER!
The taking of the Mark is the ONLY sin that God will NOT forgive. So, isn’t it better to get saved now, before it is too late?
After these 7 years, Jesus will come back to Earth in The Second Coming. And guess what? His Church, the people who were Raptured in the Rapture will come back with Him and they will fight the Antichrist and everyone who took the Mark- and I will be one of them.
“And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.”
After this fight, Christ will reign on Earth for 1,000 years. After the 1,000 years is up, Satan will be released for one last time. He will rage war with God, in a war known as the “War of Gog and Magog”. After that, God will judge everyone “according to their works.” Everyone who is not found in the Lamb’s book of life, the people who were not saved, will spend eternity in Hell. There, you will be constantly burned and eaten alive by worms. There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 13:42.
After this, those who are saved will spend eternity in the New Earth.
“1. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”
2. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
Wow, just wow!
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.Revelation 22:21.
