Waiting for the Rapture, Without spots and Wrinkles
No father abandons his children just because they mistakenly soil themselves. No father throws away his child because of stained garments. His love for the child is beyond that, so he cleanses the child and carries the child. The father believes that when the child is grown up he will be wise enough to stay away from soiling themselves, and even if they do, they would wash themselves immediately. This is God’s expectation of us. He wants us to keep ourselves clean, without spot or wrinkles because anyone who lives in sin does not have the nature of God.
What if the child is already an adult and chooses to live in a septic tank? Will the father keep welcoming such a child and bathe him repeatedly, even though the child deliberately continues to live in the septic tank? What would you do if your adult child doesn’t see anything wrong with living in a septic tank? This is what some Christians are doing, they deliberately choose to live in sin.
Now we are waiting for the Rapture or death. None must meet us in sin because those who are not watched pure in the Blood of the Lamb will not be raptured by the Lord.
It is the will of Jesus Christ that He presents us to Himself without spot and wrinkles.“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.”(Ephesians 5:25-28)We are redeemed from the darkness of this world and has translated us into the kingdom of light. After the redemption He commands us to remain faithful and observe everything He commands as we await His return to catch prepared Saints home to be with Him.
