Focus On Rapture


There is no living Christian who has come to the place where he or she can say ‘I cannot miss church rapture.’ If Moses missed entering the Promised Land then surely God is no respecter of persons. His standards do not change with the passage of time.

On the way to Golgotha to pay the price for human redemption Jesus told His disciples: “I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me” (Jn 14:30). Every one of us will be subjected to scrutiny by Satan at the point of sleep or rapture, whichever occurs first.

The easiest and most deceptive way to attract and harbor Satan’s property is through inappropriate sexual behavior. Ungodly sexual intimacy is a covenant of death. It is not amenable to the law on time limitation. When a man knocks at the door of a woman in an illegitimate manner the whole spiritual realm is put on alert. Records are taken internally and at the three spiritual strongholds and consequences follow, unless appropriate action is taken to avert the ensuing judgment.

God designed marriage to be between one unmarried man and one unmarried woman for life. All other forms of marital union attract punishment. Under the Law of Moses it was death by stoning or burning or both. Under the new covenant sexual immorality can lead to exclusion from inheriting the kingdom of God. The tragedy of the situation is that ‘married’ Christians in wedlock not joined by God are living in disobedience unawares. A marriage not joined by God is a harbinger of death.

Why is the punishment so severe? Sex is not just a physical exercise done for pleasure only; it is a spiritual communion. Sex is a blood covenant. God designed sexual intimacy to bond one man and one woman to become one flesh in a marriage joined by Him. That is why first-time sex alters human anatomy for good or for evil.

Any person who has slept with a member of the opposite sex except in the context of a marriage joined by God has a distorted anatomy. That is what Apostle Paul referred to as ‘filthiness of the flesh and spirit.’ The person is carrying satanic property that can prevent from inheriting the kingdom of God. Coition is a covenant cut with blood and remitted when done in an ungodly manner by shedding of blood, the blood of Jesus or the blood of the offender.

In addition, the church is full of married people who need deliverance from what the Bible calls “the sins of my youth” (Ps 25:7), “the iniquities of my youth” (Job 13:26), and “the sin which doth so easily beset us” (Heb 12:1). Marital problems are usually attributed to reasons other than anatomical distortions arising from illegitimate coition. With proper teaching the symptoms are easy to detect. Household wickedness, lack of love, refusal to submit, strange encounters in dream – these are not matters psychological counseling can resolve.

Records of iniquities arising from past immoral sexual activities do not go away on their own. For the avoidance of doubt those who harbor Satan’s property cannot participate in the rapture of the Church. The command of the Scriptures is that we must consciously deal with iniquities arising from unbiblical sexual encounters. “Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God” (2 Cor 7:1). Sexual immorality defiles; defilement breeds iniquity and iniquity is the legal ground for afflicting the spirit, soul and body with filthiness.

Can God forgive a Christian for attracting defilement in his or her life before becoming a Christian? Yes, but it is up to the person forgiven to cleanse self of filthiness of the outerman and innerman. This is an area where ignorance has done havoc to the body of Christ. If you are the shepherd of saved people, know that you will be required to give account of the souls under your nurture on the last day. Consequently, it is incumbent on you to teach your congregants these truths.

The bible exhorts Christians to “cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” The new birth does not remove filthiness arising from ‘iniquities of my youth.” Anatomic alterations that take place during copulation leave permanent marks that can only be removed by applying the blood of Jesus in a methodical manner after the new birth.

“Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
