We Who Are in CHRIST Should be Ready for Our Blessed Hope Every Minute of Every Day


Brethren, the Bible tells about many prophetic events which are still to come. Let’s take a look at what the Lord says in His Word about the coming of Jesus to catch us away to heaven.

For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will” (Matthew 24:44).

“But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone” (Mark 13:32).

“Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:52)

“Therefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:18)

“looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus” (Titus 2:13)

“In the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing” (2 Timothy 4:8)

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first(1 Thessalonians 4:16)

“Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:17)

“For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep” (1 Thessalonians 4:15)

“For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah” (Matthew 24:37)

“For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark” (Matthew 24:38).

“When He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed” (2 Thessalonians 1:10).

“They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing;
They will enter into the King’s palace” (Psalm 45:15).

“So, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door”(Matthew 24:33).e

    We can’t date set but we will know we are VERY CLOSE to the Rapture occurring by the SIGNS we are seeing all over the world and especially with Bible prophecy occurring in Israel. Jesus wanted us to be alert and watch for the signs.

  2. I don’t understand why we get knickers in a knot over setting a date. We can’t! Even if we say Sept 35 for example…we can’t say that’s the date because for friend in Australia it will already be the 36th! Knkw one can pinpoint the exact day or hour because of time zones, hemispheres etc. But, as others say..we sure are aware of the season!!! Looking up always! Blessings

    1. Yes! And that is exactly what Jesus wants us to do. We are to know the season that we are in. Since the Jewish people came back to Israel in 1948 and thus fulfilled a major prophecy, many in the body of Christ realized that this very important event brought us closer to His coming. But to set a “date” when even Jesus doesn’t know – only His Father – is just not what the Lord wants us to spend time doing. We should live as if He is coming tonight or even in the next minute!
