The Bible shares that we have the light that is Jesus Christ, and Christians should always be watchful, Alert, and of self-control lest they be caught unaware when that day comes. Since the Rapture is PRE-TRIBULATION, It causes Christians to lead holy, Pure lives in expectation, and preparation that (The Bridegroom) The Lord Jesus Christ will COME FOR THE BRIDE AT ANY MOMENT! And if a Christian loses focus of this Blessed Hope then they risk becoming carnal, Sleeping, and spiritually dead. Awake thou that sleepest...
And that, (knowing the time) that (now it is high time to awake out of sleep) for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
(Awake thou that sleepest) Be (wise) (light)-Lamps Lit *
Wherefore he saith, (Awake thou that sleepest) and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee (light)-Lamps Lit *
15See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, (but as wise)
Other Rapture views say that perhaps the Pre-Trib Rapture gives believers a false security, BUT The Truth about the Rapture Miracle/Blessed Hope is that it helps Christians be wise, and live a more PURE life before God, or else they will be LEFT BEHIND! Live for God NOW, Not when you realize it’s too late, and you have to live during the dreadful seven year Tribulation. Notice that 1 John 3:2-3 says, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure." THIS IS THE BLESSED HOPE-Read Titus 2:13 AS WE ARE LOOKING, WATCHING, AND ABIDING IN KING JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH, AS WE ARE READY FOR THE RAPTURE- THIS HELPS THE CHRISTIAN PURIFIETH HIMSELF, BY HAVING HIM/HER LIVING FOR KING JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH NOW, INSTEAD OF IN THE TRIBULATION…
Wait on the LORD! Behold, The Bridegroom Cometh! Watch...
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
1 Corinthians 1:7
So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 Thessalonians 3:5
And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
