Who will be caught up in second coming of Jesus Christ (Rapture) !!!

Jesus Christ :”I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 

Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.” Luke – 17:34-36

No one predict who will be caught up in second coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ. But above verses give  clue about Rapture(Second coming of Jesus Christ)

 two men in one bed:  who can be on bed – brothers, sisters, husband & wife, children and a parents. Mostly closely related persons sleep together. Among them  one will taken and  other  will be left behind.
Two women grinding together- house : this can be compared to house of God . in the church only one part of believers will be taken and others will be left behind.

Two men in the field:  This can be viewed in two perspective way. 

a) Our work place: we physically work. There one will be caught up and other will be left behind.

b) Field : spiritually where saved and unsaved people live together. Only those saved people who preserve the salvation, love , holiness and faith until coming of Christ will be caught up in Rapture. 

In above all verses we read one thing common, one will be taken and other will be left behind. This shows only 50% will caught up, and the remaining 50% will be left behind group. By the Grace of God let us be in caught up group.

Let us pray and receive  Grace of Jesus to be seen in His Coming.

Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” Jude 1:21
  

Your reward !!

” And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”- Rev 22:12

 Our Lord Jesus Christ is waiting with a reward to receive us to Heaven.  He has many rewards for each and every person. Let us work for the kingdom of God and receive our reward. 

One may ask what all work can we do to God ?

Proclaiming gospel to unsaved people, teaching Sunday school to children, tracts ministry, hospitality to poor, helping poor, giving money to people who are in need etc, by doing these works we get opportunity to tell gospel  that Jesus Christ is the living God.

Goodness of God is He is gracious to give the reward to all of them , but according to our work.

When we work for God, surely He will bless us spiritually, physically and eternally..

The lost son and his father

” And he said, A certain man had two sons:And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. Luke15:11-24

this parable here gives direct message. The younger  son , who once was good, fell into temptation and lost everything. But when he repented for his mistake , his father forgave him.

The younger son (prodigal son) here refers  to YOU and ME .After salvation we receive anointing of holyspirit, by receiving holyspirit we become sons of heavenly father -Romans 8:15. At this stage we know truth that Jesus Christ is only true God but still we go away from God, that is due to carnal temptation. Carnal things is nothing but worldly things. When God blesses us much, we must thank God, we must be humble, we must help poor, instead the richness must not separates us from God. But our gracious God is always waiting, when we will return to Him. As the father ran , hugged and kissed his son, our heavenly father is also waiting for us. When we truly repent, and turn to God, God will restore our salvation and give us a new anointing. Let us repent and return to Jesus Christ, and ask His forgiveness. 

” Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. ” – Matt 3:2

The Lost Sheep

‚Äč 

What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.  -Luke 15:4- 


  In the last article we read about lost coin, but lost sheep is different from lost coin. Sheep has life, it knows it’s Shepherd , it knows it’s herd. 

Sheep can be compared to a person who got saved, led a spiritual life for some period of time and then went away from the God. We would have experience of salvation , Jesus Christ died on cross for my sins, and I  am redeemd by His precious blood. But when God delays to answer our prayers, trial , tribulations we face makes us to go away from presence of God. Sometimes we make wrong decisions in our education, career, job, and in family life, makes us to go away from God. 

Sheep follows it’s Shepherd by:

Sight:  as sheep follow by looking at Shepherd we must look at Jesus Christ only. when we don’t read the Bible, don’t go to church regularly, don’t pray regularly, we will go away from God.

Voice :  as sheep hears its voice and follow him we need to follow Jesus Christ .we may be physically present in church, but our mind may be thinking something else, we may be mentally absent. When God speaks to us through sermons, servant of God, or by prophecy, we may think  that is not for me, simply ignore it. By these ways go astray from God.

Walk : or running, as sheep follow its shepered. We must follow the foot step of Jesus Christ. Thy word is lamp unto my feet and light unto my path(PS 119). Mediation of word of God help us to follow Jesus. Many times when we are sick, when trial comes , we will get weary , we get discouraged and doubt God,  give up going to church.

   Our situation may be same like the sheep lost its sight, deaf to voice of God, lost our path. But As the Shepherd comes in search of the lost sheep, and when he finds it, he layeth the sheep on his shoulders, Jesus Christ our Shepherd comes in search of us.  His love of Calvary saved us, brought us to His presence. Even though many times we forget His love, forget precious salvation we have received, Our beloved Shepherd Jesus Christ never forgets us. He finds us, takes us upon His shoulders, like a father until we reach His home. 

Unique thing in this parable is, after the shepered finds the sheep, He never allows it to walk among the hered, He Himself carries on His shoulders. This can be compared to we the believers, having fellowship with servants of God, holding on to the promises  that God have given us, God will enable us to reach His home.
Jesus Christ:  ” I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”   (John 10:11)

The Lost Coin !

“Either what woman having ten pieces(coin) of silver, if she lose one piece(Coin), doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.”  Luke 15:8-9

This lost coin is we (I and you). Once we were lost in this world following things of this world. We didn’t know there is a living loving God Jesus Christ. As a coin is non living thing , there was no life in our  spiritual life. We were not content, in our education, job, money or family life. Nothing was not able to satisfy us, but when our loving Jesus found us, There came life in our lives, We got a peace, joy, satisfaction and true happiness that this world cannot give. Thank Jesus Christ our beloved saviour, who found us , saved us, made worthy to be with Him in eternity. Let us pray to God receive His Grace to be caught up in His coming…

God is with you!

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”- Isa 41:10



In times of trials we forget the God. We think our problems are bigger than God. We think God himself cannot solve our problem. But the truth is God is always with us, He says I will never you nor forsake you. In the above verses God we learn 5 things.

1.God says “Fear not” , nothing happens without heavenly father will.

2.God says“I am with you”, when God is with us ,we need not worry about anything , because he takes care of all things.

3.God says ” be not dismayed & He will strengthen you”. With our own strength and ability we can do nothing, By the strength of God we will be able to overcome our trials.

4.God will “help you”. Man’s help have limitations, but only God can help you in in all situations, everywhere, every time. 

5.God will “uphold you”, in one sense He will lead you, guide you by holding your hand. You need not be fearful about your future, God himself will lead you.

Let us pray to God and receive His Grace. Seek his Mercy. So that our faith and hope be only in Lord saviour Jesus Christ.
