Focus On Rapture


The church Jesus established is about people and not physical structures or social esteem. It’s about the replacement for fallen angels. It’s about the Priesthood of God on earth. It’s about the Bride and Wife of Jesus Christ.

The early church embraced the Apostles’ doctrine and fellowship. The modern church has evolved new and revised standards some of which are not in tandem with the purpose Jesus came to earth. Some in fact damn the soul.

In line with the spirit of Laodicea of this end-time era, the church is currently engrossed with the acquisition, custody and utilisation of money and material things at times completely unrelated to the mandate of Jesus.

In a nutshell, the mandate of Jesus is to seek, save and re-establish lost mankind on earth. The assignment involves two comings to earth, three distinct job descriptions that span over three dispensations: Law, Grace and Kingdom. It has three finishing points, one is past and two are future.

The first coming was to pay the price for Adam’s transgression. The second coming is to judge Christians, Jews and Gentile peoples and nations in that order. The third assignment in His second coming is to re-establish the lost kingdom of God on earth rule over it with a rod of iron for the restitution of all things before handing over to God the Father for further action.

The concern of God in this end-time period is to compel unbelieving Jews and idolatrous Gentiles to be saved and be added to the church.

Acts 15:

13 And after they had become silent, James answered, saying, “Men and brethren, listen to me:

 14 “Simon has declared how God at the first visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name.

 15 “And with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written:

 16 ‘After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up;

 17 So that the rest of mankind may seek the LORD, even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the LORD who does all these things.’  (NKJV)

In the early church composed of believers, the greatest motivation was expectation of the second coming of Christ. It was the catalyst for turning the world of their time upside down.

Today, the church is filled with people who are mostly uninterested in the return of the Lord because the doctrine of eschatology is taught perfunctorily or not at all.

If we believe that the period we are in now is the end-time or last days, then the doctrine of the end-time, which is also known as the doctrine of eschatology must be taught in today’s church to evoke the same zeal such teachings by the original apostles produced among brethren in the early church.

If roughly two thousand years ago they looked forward to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ it behooves us in these last days to be more circumspect in our expectation of the evacuation of the church to heaven as the Lord promised He would do. The church is expected to be prepared and ready for the Lord’s return.

John 14:

1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.

 2 “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

 3 “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

 4 “And where I go you know, and the way you know.”  (NKJV)
