ARE YOU READY?
Hey, look, you and you, yes you, the Lord is asking you a question today, Are You Ready? It’s a shame that not many people nowadays can answer it or simply do not know if they are. The Bible speaks of the return of our Lord in the clouds and that this event will occur real soon, the Bible says in (Jn 14:2-3) “In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” When I return the dead in Christ shall rise first, the righteous ones: “And the dead in Christ will rise first” (1 Ts 4:16). He’s coming for you and me because, He loves us and He does not want no one to get lost but that all come to repentance (2 Pet 3:9) “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” My brother’s/sister’s I want you to remember that the Lord is at the door knocking this day, and wishes that you and I open our hearts to him because we are still in time for salvation. Much people have confused the rapture of the Lord with the second coming of the Lord, I tell you the seven years of tribulation separates them and you nor I will be here to see it. The rapture is Christ in the clouds; the Second coming is Christ touching the Earth. When Christ comes back for his Church, if you are cleaned by His blood, full of the Holy Spirit, baptized by fire, if your living right, if your paying your tithes, loving your wife, submitting to your husband, if your living right, if it is not let to congregate as some have by custom, (this means if you come to the Church, when? Every time the doors are opened), if you nothing prevent you, if your letting love prevail in your life, if your walking in forgiveness, if your walking in obedience then it does not matter what your doing or where you are because when the trumpet sounds, even if you are buried in a mine 400 feet of depth or are in an airplane thousands of feet in the air if you were bought by the blood you are going to leave this place. We will be with the Lord in heaven for all the eternity. Halleluya! Are You Ready? Let me explain the difference between both events: The rapture is when Christ comes in the clouds to get his Church (you and me), only those that are born again will see Him, (1 Ts 4:16-17) “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: 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.” Notice that the Lord will not touch the earth to pick up His Church but that He comes in the clouds. I mention this so that there is no confusion in thinking He already is here. The second coming of the Lord will be when the Lord returns for His people Israel and there is when he will come to touch the Earth because the word says that He will descend on the Monte of Olive in (Zech 14:3-5) “Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.” The good thing of this coming is that we come back with Him, nice huh! Are You Ready? And it says that all the saints came with Him; in (Jud 1:14) “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints.” The Lord gives us the opportunity of being able to know Him and to repent from our sins so that we ma able to be part of the rapture of the Lord and be able to celebrate together with our Lord. The Bible says in (Isa 55:6) “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:” The day will come in which you will not find Him; do not let it be too late. Are You Ready? Let me do a comparison of the two events, as I said previous” In the rapture only the born again will see Him and leave, He comes for the saints. In the second coming all eye will see him, here He comes with the saints. In the rapture it’s a sign of destruction, here is the seven years of tribulation. In the second coming it is a sign of peace, here there is a thousand years of peace reigning here with Christ. You and I want to be ready. Confesses with me these words: Jesus, I recognize my incapacity to direct my life. Recognizing which I have sinned against you I request that you forgive all my sins. I believe that you died for me on the cross reviving on the third day, to wash my sins and to heal all my wounds. Jesus, today I give you my life and I open the doors to you of my heart so that you can transform me. I confess that you are God and I accept you in my life like me one and only Personal Savior. Wash me with your blood and write my name in Lambs Book of Life. Amen. That’s it I’ll see you in heaven when Christ returns. Many blessings and I invite you to look for a church where you can congregate and that is full of the power of the Holy Spirit and fire, get baptized in waters by submersion and lives a life for the Lord. God Bless you At the service of the Lord and yours Pastor Luis Negrón
