How close are we to the rapture?
I think we are so close to the pre-trib rapture of the church, I really don't want to know how close we are. If the Lord or angel was to tell me the magic date, the revelation would probably distract me from my work at Rapture Ready. There are some projects that take me several months to complete. If the rapture was to transpire near to that time frame, I would be tempted to set aside the whole endeavor.
People need to realize that the rapture is a forever event. Once it takes place, there will be no more time for Christians to get their lost loved ones saved. It takes time to build up treasures in heaven and to convict the hearts of those folks who are indifferent to the gospel message.
"But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing" (Mat 24:42-46)."Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men" (2 Cor 5:11).
