I am writing this in hopes that it will be read especially by the brethren who are hoping to be gathered up on September 23rd.
That would be absolutely heavenly!
But Jesus said this:
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be” (Matthew 24:36-39).
There are some who have set the date of His coming for September 23rd – just two days away. Although all of us who are born again want our Lord to come quickly, I am fearful for those who are counting on this day, if our Lord Jesus tarries. You see, the timing of the Rapture is entirely up to the Father in heaven. It is our Father who will tell His Son to go and get us!
So, if September 23rd is indeed the day of the Rapture of the Bride of Christ, then this article will probably not be read by many. We will be in heaven with our Redeemer and with all of the saints.
But if September 23rd comes and goes, and we are still here – please do not fret or be depressed.
Jesus will come for us at just the right time. God’s ways are indeed higher than ours!
We must trust Him with our whole hearts.
