Q. Re: At An Hour When We Don’t Expect Him. So, if i am not watching for the rapture that you say is imminent and I have repented of my sins and I know that Jesus died for my sins and paid the debt that I owe, I am not going to be raptured because I’m not watching for it. Is that right? If I am going to be raptured even if I’m not watching for it, than why should I watch for it as you suggest?
A. I don’t know how you came to your conclusion, but it was not from anything I wrote. Every born again believer will go in the rapture.
We should be watching for the rapture because a) it’s the most incredible thing that will ever happen to us on Earth, b) it could be the very next event on God’s prophetic schedule, c) Paul said we should not be surprised by it (1 Thes. 5:4), and d) the Lord promised a crown to all who have longed for His appearing (2 Tim. 4:8).
