Q. I so want the Rapture to come. At every one of my family’s gatherings for the last few years, when we all pray before we eat, even though we all want the rapture to come now, we ask that the next time we celebrate whatever the “event”, it will be in the New Jerusalem.
I am so blessed, I have a good job, a roof over my head, more than enough food to eat, family that are Born Again, both here and with The Lord. Yet I am so tired of this world, tired of the flagrant disobedience of society to the Word of God, so tired of watching loved ones succumb to the ravages of time, so tired of the rhetoric and “sand kicking across an invisible line” coming from the media, the government, the world. I just want to be with Jesus .
A. John 12:25 says, The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
No matter how favorably our life in this world compares to others here, it bears no resemblance whatever to our life to come. As believers we’re supposed to understand that and be waiting with great expectation for our Lord to take us there. In fact, Jesus promised a special crown to those who long for His appearing (2 Tim. 4:8).
