Rapture Prophecy

End Time Bible Prophecy, and Watching for King Jesus Christ to Rapture us home, up into Heaven.

      

The Midnight Cry.

God has been preparing His bride!

Are you ready! Are you prepared as His bride?

A Revelation (The Bride of Christ)

Be wise! Keep Your Lamp Lit with(JESUS CHRIST) and Filled With Oil (As with the Holy Ghost)

2 Samuel 22:29

For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.

God is calling, and the harvest is within our lifetime! God is preparing His bride for the wedding of the Lamb. Many believers think they are ready. Will you be dressed in wedding garments without spot or wrinkle?

 Is your wedding invitation written upon your heart?

King Jesus Christ prophesied concerning the time of His coming when He gave the parable of the ten virgins, and the words are written in Red inside the Holy Bible for a reason.

 When Jesus Christ shared Matthew 25:1-13, He was speaking about those who would still be alive when the Rapture trumpet sounds.

 He was speaking of the last days, the harvest generation! The days in which you, and I are living right now.

King Jesus Christ is coming again as King and Conqueror, but first He is coming for His bride. He will meet her in the clouds in the rapture! at the sound of the trumpet. And then He will come again, with His bride, to judge every sinner!

When He comes for His bride, will He see you as one of His wise virgins? Will He see you preparing for His wedding?

 God speaks of His wedding through the prophet Isaiah and says, For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee, and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee. Isaiah 62:5

Consider carefully what King Jesus Christ Shared about the wedding concerning His return(Rapture)

The parable of ten virgins

Matthew 25:1-13

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

 3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them.

4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil, for our lamps are gone out. 9But the wise answered, saying, Not so, lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

The Last scripture in Matthew 25:13 tells all to Watch!

There will be wise and foolish believers!

In the parable of the ten virgins, King Jesus Christ reveals that there will be wise and foolish believers in the day of His coming. He compares five wise virgins with five foolish virgins, they were ALL VIRGINS! 

2 Corinthians 11:2

For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

He is not comparing WISE sheep with FOOLISH goats! He is not comparing WISE bundles of wheat with FOOLISH bundles of tares, or weeds at this Time. 

Jesus Christ is comparing five wise virgins with five foolish virgins.

 The WISE are those who Personally know(Abide) with Jesus Christ.

(Awake, Abide as Shared in Romans 13:11 and 1 John 2:28)

The WISE are those who Obey, and Usher Love in Jesus Christ in Sincerity (Personal Relationship) with the Bridegroom, and know King Jesus Christ is coming again for His bride.

(The Wise Overcomers are Awake, and Watching)

Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find (watching:) The Wise are Ready (watching:) as shared in the Scriptures Proverbs 8:34, Luke 12:37, and Revelation 16:15

All the virgins had lamps that were lit at one time.

They all had known of Jesus at one Time.

(The Lamp 2 Samuel 22:29, Psalm 119:105)

Jesus Christ is the lamp, the light of the world John 8:12 

 Five/Half were Wise

Five/Half were Foolish!

The Foolish once lived in the wonderful joy of being ready and watching, but turned back to accept the careless lifestyle of worldly living and conduct(Back Sliding, Lukewarm) as Shared in the scripture Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth)

The Lord is our LAMP

2 Samuel 22:29

For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.

Psalm 119:105

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Isaiah 62:1 shares Salvation is as a lamp that burneth.

The Scripture Isaiah 62:1 shares Salvation is as a lamp that burneth, and matthew 25:8 Shares The foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil, for (our lamps are gone out) and the Scriptures 2 Samuel 22:29 Shares the LORD is as a LAMP, and Psalm 119:105 The Lamp-The Word was God John 1:1

Isaiah 62:1

For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.

Also Luke 12:35 says to keep your lights, Lamps Lit-burning…

At midnight, or when the world is at its deepest depravity, and moral darkness, the coming of our Lord is announced(As The Days of Noah, We are as the Days of Noah Now) 

The Wise virgins- Awake (Romans 13:11) They Awake From (out of) The carnal, and sinful Ways of the world, and The compromise of self centered living, and the traditions of man made religion etc. Read James 1:27, and James 4:4, Also 1 John 2:15-17

All the virgins had flames in their lamps before they slumbered, and slept. The Spiritual Wise virgins are awake (1 Thessalonians 5:1-9) and the Wise have oil (The Holy Ghost) Proverbs 21:20 The Wise virgins have their Lamps Lit-Burning With OIL.

The Wise, and Foolish Virgins...

The seed of the Gospel has been shared with you, What kind of soil was the seed sown?

Luke 8:14-16 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. 15But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

16No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed, but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.

Only the wise had OIL! Only the wise had received the infilling of the Holy Spirit.

Throughout Scripture, the oil is used as the symbol for the Holy Spirit.

Only the wise hungered, and thirsted for righteousness and received God's promise of His fullness.

They received, and ushered the fruit of the Spirit(Galatians 5:22-26)The fruit is produced as you abide(1 John 2:28) in His infilling, as you abide(Walking in the Spirit Galatians 5:25) in His fullness in righteousness. The fruit of the Holy Spirit is the oil that makes your light shine, that makes you an overcomer with Jesus Christ, that empowers you to overcome your sinful nature producing garments that are clean and white without spot or wrinkle.

Righteousness

Psalm 17:15

As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness:
I shall be satisfied, when (I awake) with thy likeness.

Filled

Matthew 5:6

Blessed are they which do hunger, and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.

Seek the kingdom of God, and his Righteousness

Matthew 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Daniel 12:3

And they that be (wise) shall shine as the brightness of the firmament, and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Seek Righteousness

Zephaniah 2:3

Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD's anger.

Being filled

Philippians 1:11

Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

1 Corinthians 15:34

(Awake) to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.

1 John 2:28-29
 
And now, little children, abide in him, that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

 29If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

 

Be Wise, and walk in Righteousness...

OIL in the dwelling of the WISE

Psalm 45:7

Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Proverbs 3:35
 
The (wise) shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Proverbs 14:35

(The king's favour) is toward a (wise servant) but his wrath is against him that causeth shame.

Proverbs 21:20

(There is treasure to be desired) and (oil in the dwelling of the wise) but a foolish man spendeth it up.

Proverbs 28:26

He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool (but whoso walketh (wisely) he shall be delivered)

The Wise Virgins(as Pure Heart) The Children of God, Those who are Holy, and do the will of God. The New Creatures(The Righteous) That Trust, Obey, Love, and Abide.

1 Peter 1:16

Because it is written, Be ye holy, for I am holy.

 The Born Again Christians, The Overcomers, The New Creatures who usher an (Intimate) Personal Relationship with Jesus Christ, and their Lamps are Lit, and filled with oil(Holy Ghost)

The fruit of the Spirit is the very nature of God.

Ephesians 5:9 

(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth)

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, against such there is no law. (Galatians 5: 22-23)

All the virgins had lamps that were lit with oil at one time.

 The Foolish Virgins were not thankful, and were not grateful enough to love King Jesus Christ more than anything, and everything(with all their Heart, Soul, and Mind)

Saints this is the first, and great commandment, as Shared in the Powerful Scriptures Deuteronomy 6:5, Matthew 22:37-38, and also in Mark 12:30

One must Love King Jesus Christ more than anything, and everything(with all their Heart, Soul, and Mind, and obey Him as Lord, and Master!

When Jesus Christ healed the ten lepers, only one leper came back to thank Him, Jesus asked, Where are the other nine? (Luke 17:17)

The foolish had none of the oil that comes from surrender of self. They did not replenish the oil of the Holy Spirit. They did not hunger and thirst for righteousness, and become filled.

The Foolish let their Love, and fire for the Lord dwindle to a lukewarm ember.

Revelation 3:16

 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

The Foolish Virgins took for granted their salvation, and slumbered their life away with their eyes on themselves, with their eyes on the things of the world. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.

If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. As shared in 1 John 2:15-17, James 1:27, James 4:4 They did not Watch, and see that there was a wedding to prepare for, and wedding garments to make ready.

Are you preparing your wedding garments, beloved?

Matthew 22:11-14

And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment. 12And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

14For many are called, but few are chosen.

Pray! Ask God to fill you with the oil of the Holy Spirit.

The parable of the ten virgins, and the wedding garment describe those who had knowledge of the Bridegroom King Jesus Christ, and an understanding of the coming wedding Celebration THE RAPTURE OF HIS BRIDE!

The parable of the ten virgins describes those who were expecting to be a part of the Bride! Jesus Christ is talking about believers, and the readiness of their lives. He is talking about you, and me, the harvest generation! We who will still be alive when the Rapture trumpet sounds.

We are now in the midst of God's awakening! Revival is upon the land. The foolish are those who do not continue to Love, and obey God! The foolish rebel, and reject the move of the Holy Ghost. The foolish stop watching for Him! The foolish let His awesome sacrifice, redemptive love, death on the cross, resurrection, and impending judgement fade from their lives. The foolish focus on the things of this world, and do not seek the deeper things of the Holy Spirit.

Obey Him

Acts 5:32

And we are his witnesses of these things, and so is also (the Holy Ghost) whom God hath given to them that obey him.

 Hebrews 5:9

And being made perfect, he became the author of (eternal salvation) unto all them that obey him.

The foolish neglect the Word of God. The Foolish become deceived, and fall for the ways of the world(back sliding, and lukewarm)

God is preparing His bride, His righteous born again New Creatures for the rapture and the wedding of His Son. The day is coming, in our lifetime! Some will be taken, but many will remain to suffer God's wrath.

 Jesus tells us to pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen.(Luke 21:34-36)

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.

35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 

36Watch 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.

King Jesus Christ of Nazareth Warned in this Prophecy, And take heed to yourselves, lest at anytime your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting (overindulgence) and drunkenness, and the cares of this life, so that day come upon you unawares. (Watch ye) therefore, and (pray always) that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things.

  Notice in the Scripture (Luke 21:34-36) Here, in praying always, it is the Christians that are instructed to be sober, and not to be overtaken with overindulgence, and the cares of this life, not just the unbeliever (1 Thessalonians 5:6-8) First, note that unbelievers do not believe.

 Secondly, unbelievers do not pray, and Worship God! Nor will they pray always, and Watch which is an explicit Christian directive for saved Christians to be Watching in preparation for Jesus Christ! Lest That Day overtake them unawares.

We must continue to share, and teach the Powerful Gospel with anyone, and everyone at all Times!

One must remember to Pray the Christian, Back sliders, Lukewarm (Revelation 3:16) and unbelievers Repent (Acts 3:19) Wake up (Romans 13:11-14) Abide (1 John 2:28-29) and Obey Almighty God (Acts 5:32, Hebrews 5:9)


Also we must continue to share, and teach that the Christians need to be Wise (Proverbs 21:20) and Wake up (Romans 13:11-14) Watch for Jesus Christ (Proverbs 8:34, Luke 12:37, Revelation 3:3) and Abide (1 John 2:28-29)


-Paying attention- Notice in Luke 13:24-25 The Door is shut, and the foolish virgins are saying Lord, Lord open the Door, after the Door was shut. Notice The (other (virgins) saying, (Lord, Lord) open to us, After the Door is shut. Matthew 25:10-12 There is foolish virgins Left Behind, and The Door is shut… They were calling, Praying out, and calling, LORD…(foolish virgins) saying, (Lord, Lord) open to us. They were calling out the name LORD! These foolish virgins, Knew Jesus at one time… They were not unbelievers… Unbelievers don’t believe… This is after The open Door Rapture Revelation 4:1

Foolish virgins saying, Lord, Lord …

Luke 13:24-25
(Strive to enter in at the strait gate) for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.


25When once the master of the house is (risen up) and hath (shut to the door) and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the (door) (saying, (Lord, Lord, (open) unto us, and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are.


The (other (virgins) saying, (Lord, Lord) open to us.


Matthew 25:10-12

10And while they went to buy, (the bridegroom came) and (they that were ready) went in with him to the marriage: and the (door was shut)

(Afterward) After The open Door Rapture Revelation 4:1

11(Afterward) came also the other (virgins) saying, (Lord, Lord) open to us.


12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

-Notice the (Door is open) in Revelation 4:1, and Matthew 25:10 shares the Bridegroom(Jesus Christ) came, and those who were Ready (Awake) (Wise) Lamps Lit, and filled with oil went in with him to the Marriage, and then the Door was shut.

Be Wise, Don’t Be Left Behind…


Notice that the lamps of the foolish (though they were referred to as virgins)The lamps of the foolish had gone out(No OIL) indicating they had burned at one time!


The Foolish are people that know but are careless, and unwatchful.

These are the multitudes that love pleasure, and riches more than they love the wonderful words of life that have been preached over, and over, time after time.


The twenty-fifth chapter of Matthew is no different. The ten virgins that go to meet the bridegroom are not the unheard millions of heathendom. All ten of them have at one time had oil and fire, but five of them were undisciplined and careless. They all fully expect to go into the wedding and rise at once when the midnight cry is made. Again, Jesus uses language that cannot be applied to any event but the Rapture, and Marriage of the Bridegroom. This Gospel does not speak some hidden message to the Jewish nation. Most of the Jewish Nation will still be in unbelief at this time.This is why we must continue to Pray that everyone gets Saved, and Loves Jesus Christ ushering an Intimate Relationship!


(Matthew 25:10) This is incredible language that leaves no room for misunderstanding. The door is shut on these foolish virgins and they miss the welcome into the wedding chamber. The warning would suggest that these foolish virgins are just like much of our church world. They once lived in the wonderful joy of being ready and watching, but turned back to accept the careless lifestyle of worldly living and conduct(Back Sliding, Lukewarm)


In Ephesians 5:14-15 we are exhorted to Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise.


These verses say that in the time frame between the warning cry, and the appearing of Jesus for His Bride, the first thing that occurs is that all the virgins wake up, and proceed to trim their lamps.

Living in a big city most of my life, I had no idea what trimming a lamp, meant. So I talked to a friend that lived in the country that still had several lamps that they used on occasion. They told me that when you trim the wick, two things occur. First, the smoke is eliminated and secondly, the flame burns brighter.

As I meditated on how this applied to this parable of the ten virgins, it suddenly dawned on me. The wick, I believe, represents the world and, fleshly desires, which when not continually trimmed out of ones life, causes peoples lives to become polluted, and the light to become dim.

Knowing the bridegroom was about to come, they both trimmed their wicks, but with one difference! The foolish virgins had no oil to sustain a flame and the wise virgins did. In other words, the foolish virgins even though they trimmed their wicks by cutting out worldly influences, did not have that intimate relationship with Jesus that results from being continually filled with the Holy Spirit. So, as a result, their attempts at suddenly trying to be righteousness, were to late, They were not ushering a holiness that springs from walking in the Spirit of God.

Holiness or that quality of the Bride of being without spot and wrinkle (Ephesians 5:27) is a reflection of the character of the Spirit of God in our lives as we are intimate with Jesus Christ. The foolish virgins at the last minute tried to cut out the pollution of the world by trying to avoid sin, and do righteous acts. But because they were not already walking in the Holy Spirit, having their lamps full of oil, their efforts could not bring forth that passionate flame that Jesus Christ wanted His future bride to have for Him.

Because the wise virgins had been continually trimming their wicks, cutting the world out of their lives, on an ongoing basis, as the Holy Spirit would convict them,
their lamp burned brightly with oil, and they were ready when King Jesus Christ came for them.

Notice too, there was a space of time that passed between the warning of the midnight cry, Behold the Bridegroom cometh, and the time that the bridegroom, Jesus Christ, actually comes. In fact, this passage says that after trying to buy oil from the wise virgins, the foolish virgins had time to go to the marketplace in pursuit of the oil. Similarly in Revelation 3:18  the Laodiceans are a picture of the foolish virgins left behind! They are told to go,and buy gold tried in the fire, and to buy white raiment.

Revelation 3:18

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich, and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear, and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

 The white raiment represents the robes of righteousness that these foolish virgins will have to obtain in the tribulation.

 The fire of the furnace of tribulation that these Laodicean, foolish virgins will go through will motivate them to be on fire for the Lord.

The heat that they go through during the tribulation, will skim off their impurities, purifying them, and qualifying them to join the Bride for the Judgment Seat of Christ and Marriage Supper of the Lamb as the Wrath of God falls on this earth.

The Door is associated with the rapture. In Matthew 25:10 when it says the door is shut,
the rapture of the Bride is over and the door or gate into the New Jerusalem at that time is shut.

 Door in Greek can be seen as Portal, enter, and door in Hebrew is as Dalet, Dalet (daleth, also spelled Daleth or Daled) is the fourth letter of many Semitic alphabets, including Phoenician, Aramaic, Hebrew, Syriac, and Arabic dal, door (door in Modern Hebrew is delet)

King Jesus Christ is the Door!

Jesus Christ, The only way(Door) To Heaven(John 14:6)

Notice the Door is open in Revelation 4:1, and Matthew 25:10 shares the Bridegroom(Jesus Christ) came, and those who were Ready(Wise)Lamps Lit,and filled with oil(Holy Ghost) went in with him to the Marriage, and then the Door was shut.

Luke 13:24-25
Strive to enter in at the strait gate. for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us, and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are.


Matthew 25:10
And while they went to buy, the (bridegroom came) and they that were (ready) went in with him to the (marriage) and the(door) was shut.

John 10:2
But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.


John 10:7
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the (door) of the sheep.

John 10:9
I am the (door) by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

James 5:8-9
Be ye also patient, stablish your hearts(for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh) 9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned, behold, the judge standeth before the (door)

Revelation 3:8
I know thy works.behold, I have set before thee an open (door)and no man can shut it, for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Revelation 3:20
Behold, I stand at the (door) and knock. if any man hear my voice, and open the (door) I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Revelation 4:1
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.

Interestingly enough these two groups of believers that are called wise, and foolish virgins in Matthew 25:1-13

They are also called wise, and foolish in a parallel passage in Matthew 7:24-27 that deals with the building of one’s house.


Both the wise, and the foolish hear the Words of God, but only the wise are DOERS of what God tells them!

James 1:22-24

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

23For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.



Wise and Foolish virgins.

In this parable that Jesus shares, they are likened to builders.

WISE(ROCK) Foolish(Sand)

 Matthew 7:24-27

 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand.

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Notice that the wise are said to build their house or lives upon a rock.

Psalm 18:2 

The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my strength, in whom I will trust, my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.



The word rock is used in the Bible to refer to Jesus Christ, the Word of God and the New Jerusalem. The members of the Bride truly build their lives upon Jesus, continually feeding on the Word of God, and doeth them, Being filled with Faith.

And their house, a place Jesus Christ of Nazareth prepared just for them John 14:1-3 to live in, will be the rock, The Beautiful New Jerusalem.

Psalm 27:5

For in the time of trouble he shall (hide) me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he (hide me) he shall set me up upon a rock.


On the other hand the foolish builders (people) are said in this parable Matthew 7:24-27 to build their house or lives on unstable sand.

Sand is the perfect symbol of the unstable, shifting world system that is so appealing to these foolish believers.

This world system is a quicksand trap that will enslave the foolish until they wake up and wise up.Unfortunately it will take most of these foolish believers being left behind to truly wake them up.

The LORD is my shepherd

Shared from Rapture Prophecy

One must always remember Jesus Christ is our King, and our Shepherd, and often the Shepherds in Israel go ahead of all the sheep that graze the fields for food, and to rest!

The Shepherd goes out ahead of the flock, but always keeps his eyes on all that he keeps, and the wise sheep always Watch the Shepherd.

The Shepherd goes out ahead, and removes all of the bad weeds, and even some snakes to insure all he keeps is safe from harm.

When the Shepherd sees a wolf or any other creature that doesn't belong he comes to the rescue, and walks along side all that he keeps, and always remember it's the sheep that Love the Shepherd who stay the most close to him for they know the closer they are the more they can enjoy the Love, attention, and protection they get from the one who keeps them, and protects them from harm.

Sometimes a sheep will stray away, and the Further the sheep move away from the Shepherd the more vulnerable they become, and some sheep run real fast when they are in harms way right back to the Shepherds arms who keeps them.

But sometimes the sheep get to prideful, and think they can take care of themselves, and they just might find whatever they think they need over the next hill, and as they move very far away they must call out for help just as some must pray, and if they don't get to far away into things they need not! They can find their way back to the one who keeps them.

One must always stay very close to the Shepherd, and never move to far away.

What happens to the sheep that refuse to listen, and refuse to stay close to the Shepherd, well they find themselves in a situation where they wish they never got into, and it's very spooky to be Left Behind. Don't be Left Behind!

The Shepherd keeps those he has, and it's those who keep very close(abide) that enjoy the Love, attention, and protection from the one they Love, The Shepherd!
