Key verse: Revelation 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
A few years ago, Jesus appeared to a lady in Ghana whose child was ten years old then. She was praying: “Lord, I have only one child, can You give me another?” Jesus smiled and said: “This child you have will not grow old enough to finish his University education before I come. Get ready for My coming!”
Even a child will understand this simple language of Jesus Christ's soon coming. She would know that if she just got admission into the university, she may not finish before Jesus comes. This is a high possibility in our day. This Jesus you have been hearing historically, whom you have been reading about in the Bible, we are the fortunate generation that will see Him live in the sky.
Matthew 16:28 “Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.” This scripture is referring to our generation! This now becomes a practical message to you that is reading this devotional that some of you will never die because Jesus will meet you alive to be raptured.
The nearness of rapture is so real that I begin in some way to be sorrowful because Holiness Movement still has a lot of grounds to cover for Jesus. We are eager to gather souls for heaven but we are late comers to the scene. Others have been around for decades but we were born at the tail end of event. We really don't have much time on our hands for this job but we will keep on putting in our best, knowing that He is the God of knowledge, wisdom and understanding.
If He feels that the time is up, that would be okay but, in the meantime, let us do the little He gives us the grace to do before rapture takes place. Maybe He has also known that human beings have hardened their hearts, so why waste time on them? This is the end time revival. After the revival you are witnessing through Holiness Movement now, no other ministry is coming out for revival.
The rapture will meet this Movement. It means some of you that are not married may not even marry again. Let us work hard to cover the space like the last runner in a relay race; in anticipation of Jesus' soon return. Amen.
Thought for the day:
There is no more time to waste. Rapture is already here!
Song for the day:
When the battle is over, I shall wear the crown…
Bible reading for the day:
Numbers 11-13; Mark 5:21-43
