Question = "How can I be ready to be caught up in
the Rapture?"


Answer = It is much simpler than you may think. The
short answer is that you must receive Jesus Christ
as your Savior. Now for the long answer. When you
ask this question, we assume that you have heard
that not all Christians will be taken when the
Rapture occurs. You probably have been told that
only "super Christians" who are living a holy life will
be raptured, and all the other Christians will have to
suffer through the Tribulation. This is not true, and
we will show you why this is not true from
Scripture.


The first thing that you must understand is the
purpose for the Tribulation. The Tribulation is a
time of judgment on the earth and punishment for
Israel. Please note that Israel and the Church are
not the same group of people. The Church is a
spiritual organism. People in the Church are related
because of their spiritual birth (by being born again
- John 3:3 ). The people of Israel (Jews) are related
by blood. This is a race of people to whom God
made special promises in the Old Testament. God
declared a time of judgment upon Israel for their
unfaithfulness. This time of judgment is clearly
declared to be only for Israel (Daniel 9:24-27 ).
Gabriel brought a message from God to Daniel
(9:20-21). Daniel 9:24 says, "Seventy weeks have
been decreed for your people and your holy city, to
finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to
make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting
righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and
to anoint the most holy place." In this message
Gabriel specifies to Daniel that the time is "for your
people." Daniel's people were Jews, the nation of
Israel. God declared 70 weeks against the nation of
Israel. This “70 weeks” is literally in the Hebrew “70
sevens.” In other words, 70 times 7 years, or 490
years. Of those years, 483 (69 times 7) of them
were fulfilled from the end of Israel's captivity in
Babylon to the cutting off of Messiah (the
crucifixion of Christ). This leaves 7 years of
judgment yet to be fulfilled. Those 7 years are the
years of the Tribulation. The point is that this
prophecy concerns Israel primarily, and the purpose
of the judgment is "to finish the transgression, to
make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity,
to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up
vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy
place."


Now, we can also demonstrate from Scripture that
Christians will not be in the Tribulation. A study of 1
Thessalonians 4:13 through 5:9 shows this. In this
passage Paul writes about the Rapture and the Day
of the Lord. First Thessalonians 5:9 gives Christians
this promise: "God has not destined us for wrath,
but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus
Christ." Pay close attention to this verse. Paul says
God has not destined us for wrath, specifically the
wrath of the Day of the Lord (5:2).


Further evidence that Christians will not go through
the Tribulation comes from 1 Corinthians. In that
letter Paul sharply rebukes the believers for being
carnal Christians. But in chapter 15, Paul writes of
the Rapture, and he never indicates that any of the
Corinthian believers, carnal though they were, would
be left behind. True believers in Jesus Christ will
not have to endure the Tribulation.

N.B

Also Apostle Paul that wrote to the Christians in Thessalonica in 1st Thessalonians 4:13-18 by the leading of the Holy Spirit did not say any Christian will be left behind..... instead the criteria for Rapture is for the Christians dat are ALIVE AND REMAINING at the time of Rapture!! The Holy Spirit through Apostle Paul did not discriminate against any Christian during Rapture. It is for ALL BELIEVERS IN CHRIST!!!!!

1 Thessalonians 4:13
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.

4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him
.
4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.


The only way you will be left behind in the Rapture
is if you have not received Christ as your Savior.
