Rise, let us be going.
Matthew 26:46

'Whenever we realize we have not taken advantage
of a magnificent opportunity, we are apt to sink into 
despair. Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the 
sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the 
invincible future with Him. Never let the sense of 
past failure defeat your next step.' (OC)

Reader, The scripture above reminds me of the
coming rapture of the Church. I did not intend to
talk about this subject when I sat down to write.
We are in a season of great changes; a season of
signs in the heavens and signs on earth. Jesus is
very clear that we are to be alert; we are to watch.
We are to prepare ourselves for Him as a bride
prepares for her groom before her wedding. It will
be a time of deep despair for those who miss the
opportunity of 'going home.'

'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: 
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.'  (1 Thes 4:16,17)

'But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, 
not the angels of heaven but my Father only...
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour 
your Lord doth come...
Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour 
as you think not the Son of man cometh...'
(Matt 24: 37, 42, 44)

'Knowing this first, that there shall come in the 
last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 
And saying, 
Where is the promise of His coming? for since 
the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they 
were from the beginning of creation...'No flood... 
(2 Peter 3:3,4)

'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...'
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast,
unmovable, always abounding in the work of the 
Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is 
not in vain in the Lord.' (1 Cor 15:52, 58)
