WHO ARE RAPTURE WATCHERS?

Rapture watchers are living born again Spirit-filled Christians who are striving to qualify to participate in the rapture of the church in grand style by being eligible to reign with Christ in the millennium in the privileged class of His wife, a higher order of raptured saints to be selected and rewarded by Jesus at the Judgment Seat.

 

Jesus expects His followers to be in daily expectation of His return. Jesus said “Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming” (Lk 12:37; Mt 25:13). The Bible-based method for a Christian to prepare for rapture is to be watchful, ready, faithful, fruitful and fully focused on his or her divine duty as assigned by the Holy Spirit. Expectation of the second coming of Christ is a prerequisite for eligibility to participate in the event as a sleeping or living saint.

 

Consequently,

  • A rapture watcher is a Christian who has made himself or herself ready for the rapture of the church and is expecting, hastening and expediting the second coming of Christ in his or her daily life and sphere of influence.

 

  • A Rapture Watcher is a Christian who is conscious of the eligibility criteria for participating in the rapture of the Church by daily cleansing  from‘all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.’ Filthiness is exemplified by spot, wrinkle or blemish in the human anatomy.

 

  • A Rapture Watcher as a follower of Christ is desirous of participating in the rapture of the church as sleeping or living saints in grand style by being qualified to receive Jesus’ reward.

 

  • A Rapture Watcher works out his or her entry into heaven by being watchful over needful things, ready at all times for sleep or evacuation to heaven, faithful in his or her relationships especially by abiding in the Lord to the end and being busy doing what the Master’s has assigned to him or her to do before He returns.

 

  • A Rapture Watcher is aware of the imminence of Church rapture and contends daily with the flesh, the world, hidden evil covenants and Satan and his cohorts in order not to be left behind when the rapture takes place.  

 

Before He went to the Cross, Jesus commanded His followers to be in expectation of His second coming by being watchful, ready, faithful to the Lord by abiding in Him to the end, which is rapture or sleep whichever comes first. There is also the requirement for fruitfully doing what has been assigned to the militant church corporately and as individual members of His Body. In bringing awareness and fulfillment of those commandments, we have the mandate of forming and nurturing a fellowship of those expecting the second coming of Christ in the similitude of the “sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do.”

 

The fellowship is non-denominational. Meetings are held periodically at designated centers to inculcate in members the doctrine of the end-times based on Distinctive Standards. These Standards incorporate ‘the Apostles doctrine and fellowship’ and end-time doctrinal modules.

 

MEMBERSHIP OF RAPTURE WATCHERS’ FELLOWSHIP

We are a non-denominational fellowship of brethren who know the times and the seasons and are desirous of bringing about in the Church the revival that will usher the return to earth of the King of kings and Lord or lords. The church must be reformed before individual members of Christ’s Body can be transformed into the full stature of the Lord.

 

Our objective is to look for and hasten the return of Jesus which will kick-start with the rapture of the church by exhorting and comforting one another with all manner of encouragement and expectation of the joy of being caught-up together with sleeping brethren to meet the Lord in the atmospheric region and be with Him forever.

 

We meet in cells with zero capital cost and affordable operating outlay. At our meetings the Holy Spirit is given right of place as the Controller. Saints are given the opportunity to actualize their God-given gifts and brethren are nurtured by means of teaching, encouragement and the supply of what is lacking for spiritual growth to maturity in Christ Jesus.

 

Those desiring to join the fellowship must be genuinely born again, filled with or desiring to be filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues in order to live as one born of God and overcome Satan, the world, transactional sins and the flesh while walking along the narrow way that leads to heaven. Membership of a local Bible-believing church is necessary but not mandatory.

To join the most hopeful group of people on the earth there are three mandatory requirements, three desirable attitudes and three keys to destiny fulfillment. 

 

Mandatory Requirements

  1. You must be born again with proof of new birth experience; namely, verifiable salvation testimony.
  2. You must be baptized or willing to be baptized in water by immersion.
  3. You must be baptized or willing to be baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.

 

Ministry Of Encouragement

  1. You are encouraged to identify with the mandate and mission of Jesus Christ on earth by being obedient to the Great Commission.
  2. You are encouraged to be an imitator of the original apostles by adhering to the “Apostles’ doctrine and fellowship” as it obtained in the early church.
  3. You are encouraged to be baptized by fire and suffer for Christ’s sake by forsaking all to follow Him.

 

Attaining Expected End

  1. You need to be ready for the rapture of the church by being in daily expectation of the return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His saints.
  2. You need to be watchful and faithful to the Lord who called you.
  3. You need to be busy doing your assigned duty in order to be fruitful.
