1 Thessalonians 4:17 After that,  we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

As soon as I began to pray today the Lord said to me He is coming back soon!! ….Very soon. We are going to be caught up. I kept hearing that word in my mind “caught up”. I have a charm bracelet with many charms on it and sometimes depending on what I have on it can be tricky wearing my bracelet.  I’ll raise my arm and my blouse will be caught up in the charms and snatch my blouse up with the bracelet in an instant.

That’s how we are going to be caught up with Jesus. First our loved ones who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior will be caught up and then all living believers will go. This will happen instantly. Are you ready?..…are your family and friends ready?….. Have you told other people about Jesus so they can be caught up?

Do you have your good pajamas on?  Let me explain this statement. When my children were little I taught them about the rapture and every night before they went to bed I would say: “do you have your good pajamas on because Jesus might come back tonight”. I would try to make them so excited about His return. Of course we know Jesus can come back at anytime day or night, but it was my special thing I did with my kids. Therefore stay alert, because you do not know the day or the hour” (Matt.25:13)

Message for Today:  Don’t get ready….be ready for the Lord’s return.

Remember the story of the 10 virgins  (Matthew 25:1-13)

Note from my heart- There has been much talk lately about the day Jesus will return and the Bible is very very clear that nobody knows.  But God gave us clues in the bible. As a prayer intercessor I sence this and I know there are others out there who feel this too……it will be very soon. There are too many things going on right now on this planet not to figure this out. Truly these times are like a woman in the last stages of labor.  Pray fervently everyday for people to believe in Jesus Christ….time is running out…..I can hear the Lords footsteps…….getting louder, coming closer…..my heart beats hard with anticipation. The bridegroom is coming for His bride. Are you ready……. Do you have your good pajamas on?
