Apart from non-believers, many people calling themselves Christians will miss the rapture. This is because;
- They do not accept Jesus Christ grace
- They have no great faith in Jesus Christ
Salvation is only by grace through faith. No matter how much you sin and how great you think your sins are, sin will not hinder you from being part of the rapture.
Sin does not close the door of heaven to us because we are repentant people and Jesus died on the cross.
Jesus on the cross washed our past sins including the Adam sin (justification), each second we are alive He cleans our present sins (sanctification) and at last He will cloth us with the garment of righteousness (glorification).
1 Cor 6:11: but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Why many calling themselves Christians will miss the Rapture
Many will miss the rapture because they are;
1. Not accepting Jesus Christ GRACE
The Old Covenant (Old Testament) is the Law (the era of the Law).
See study of the Law.
When Jesus died on the cross and resurrected on the third day, He ushered the enter universe to the era of GRACE; A New Covenant (New Testament).
In the Old Covenant, salvation was by obeying the laws but in the New Covenant salvation is by Grace through faith.
Since in the New Covenant, which we are living in, salvation is by grace through faith, to be part of the rapture is only by grace through faith.
You cannot minus GRACE and be saved; there is no salvation without grace.
We have two groups of Jesus Christ followers;
- Those purely living under Jesus Christ Grace
- Those living under the law or mixing the law and grace
People living purely under Jesus Christ grace are the only people to be in the rapture. They are the only true Christians; the only true Bride of Jesus Christ.
Christianity i.e. being a true Christian is being Christ-like and Jesus Christ is of Grace not the Law. He abolished the laws (the Old Covenant) ushering in GRACE. See purpose of Jesus death on the cross.
People living purely under grace are the true Christians; the true bride of Jesus Christ; the church awaiting rapture.
Majority of people claiming to be Christians/church/bride of Jesus Christ are not. This is because they are either living under the law or mixing the law and grace. They will not be in the rapture.
Why will these people not be in the rapture?
Because living under the law is;
- Denying the price Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, paid on the cross
- Denying the Grace of Jesus Christ
- Denying the Salvation of Jesus Christ
- Denying that Jesus Christ is the only savior
- Denying the blood of Jesus Christ
The grace of Jesus Christ is sufficient for you and me to be saved/for salvation; to be part of the rapture.
2 Cor 12:9: My grace is sufficient for you
The time you doubt that Jesus Christ grace is sufficient and start doing things to God to attain salvation, blessings, riches or anything, you are denying the grace of Jesus Christ; you are denying the price He paid for you on the cross and His blood to wash your sins.
Many people calling themselves Christians have denied Jesus Christ grace. Though they may claim with their mouths that they are living under grace, what they are doing is of the law therefore they are living under the law and not under Jesus Christ grace.
Gal 3:12: And the law is not of faith: but, the man that does them shall live in them.
If you are living under grace; you will never do anything to attain anything from God because Jesus Christ on the cross did everything. You will never tithe to get blessings, work to be blessings, offer to get, give God to receive, etc.
People living under the law must know that God does not do business. God does not do batter-trade.
God the Father only wants us humanity to accept and believe His son; Jesus Christ. Accepting His son is accepting the price He paid on the cross thus you don’t add to His grace and the finished work.
If you do anything to God to attain salvation, blessings, riches, etc, Jesus Christ is of no benefit to you.
Gal 5:4: Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; you are fallen from grace.
Doing anything to God to receive from Him is falling from grace. Many people today have fallen from grace and many do not want to hear GRACE.
To God the father, His son Jesus Christ on the cross is sufficient for humanity salvation and to receive everything at His expense; God’s Riches At Christ Expense.
Many churches today and so-called servants of God are leading to miss the rapture; they have made you fall from grace. And for this reason, many people will indeed miss the rapture.
If the church you attend preaches give to receive, tithe to receive, etc but not Jesus Christ is the tithe, the sacrifice, the offering, the only sweet smelling aroma to God, you are living under the law and for sure you will miss the rapture.
Being not under the law is being led by the Holy Spirit
Gal 5:18: But if you be led of the Spirit, you are not under the law
If you tithe and give because you are moved by the Holy Spirit but not a human being asking and exciting you to give, you are under grace and a true bride of Jesus Christ.
It is only in grace where there is the blood of Jesus Christ which washes our sins away. In grace, sin has no dominion reason sin does not close the door of heaven to you and me.
Rom 6:14: For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace.
God said to Abraham,
‘Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.’ (Gen 21:10, Gal 4:30).
‘My son’ as said by God meant Jesus.
Isaac shall not be a heir of the free Jerusalem with Ishmael and neither shall Jesus. Isaac shall not inherit the heaven with Ishmael.
The children of grace shall not inherit heaven with the children of the law. I living only under Jesus Christ grace will not inherit heaven with people living under the law or mixing the law and grace.
See Abraham allegory
For denying the grace of Jesus Christ, many people calling themselves Christians will indeed miss the rapture.
2. Lack of great faith in Jesus Christ
Salvation is only by grace through faith thus rapture is by grace through faith.
Many people will miss the rapture because they lack great faith.
Many calling themselves Christians are doubters. They doubt because they lack great faith in the word of God; in Jesus Christ.
Because they doubt, they think that what Jesus did on the cross and says in the Bible is not sufficient. They think they have to add.
‘My grace is sufficient for you’ but doubters do not believe this. To them Jesus Christ grace is not sufficient reason they tithe and give to receive, blessings, salvation and riches from God.
‘Do not worry about tomorrow’ (Mt 6:25-34) but doubters cannot believe Jesus words. They are worried about what they will eat, drink, put on, about body, etc. These are the people running to diviners for foretell because they are worried.
‘Whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you’ (John 16:23). Why do you give God to be given by Him instead of just asking? Because you doubt; you do not believe that by asking without you giving God He will give you, reason you receive not.
Even your so-called servants of God who ask and excite you to tithe and give, do not have faith to believe that by asking God not humanity they will get what they ask. If they believe Jesus words, why do they ask humanity to tithe and give? Doubters; hypocrites!
For doubting (lack of faith) and not believing Jesus Christ and His words as they are in the Bible, you will indeed miss the rapture. You may say you do not doubt but look at your actions and you will know if you doubt or not.
Believe every Jesus Christ word.
Many people calling themselves Christians will miss the rapture because of denying grace and lacking great faith (many are doubters).
The era of grace will come to an end when the Holy Spirit and the church leave the earth in the rapture and immediately the 7 year great tribulation period begins.
Because of denying the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, His blood and Grace, humanity will have to shed their own blood for salvation.
Reason in the great tribulation period the dragon goes after the followers of Jesus Christ killing them.
Rev 12:17: And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
To make it to heaven in the great tribulation period, you will have to shed your own blood; you must be persecuted (killed).
Accept Jesus Christ Grace; be of great faith for salvation is only by grace through faith..
Work out your salvation. Let’s meet in the clouds brethren
Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand
