Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The time for our Lord to return is rapidly drawing nearer.  Jesus used the fig tree budding as a parable to watch for his return. Well, the tree is budding..... Matthew 24 is being fulfilled before our eyes.  Have you thought of what you would do on seeing Christ for the first time?  Will you shout and sing praises? fall on your knees? prostrate yourself? Does the idea of walking and talking with our Lord excite you? Are you ready? He said he would return in the twinkling of an eye.  There will be no time to beg forgiveness of any sins in your life. No sin will be allowed in heaven. Have you told a lie? had a thought you should not have had?  You do not need to be a rapist or a child molester to miss out on heaven.  I pray that I will be ready constantly because I am not completely without sin each day.  I pray that you will be ready.

Hello Grandma,

I agree and think that the Rapture of the Church which is the Body of Christ could happen at any moment. There are no perfect, sinless Christians, so I give thanks that's not a requirement for Salvation.

Romans 8:1-2 (KJV)  1 [There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.   2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

1 John 2:1-2 KJV  My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:  2  And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

I give thanks that we depend on the righteousness of Jesus Christ, not our own.
