This evening I was in a store and when I went to pay the check out lady, whom I barely knew, just from going into the store, said to me. “May I ask you a question?”
I said “sure.” She said, “I have heard about something called the rapture and I was wondering if that is for real?”
I said, “Well, yes, according to many peoples understanding of Scripture.”
She then said “What is it?”
I tried to explain it to her all the while wondering what God was doing and then she said well what should I do to be ready for that?
I began to tell her that you had to be ready and she was like, “Well what do I need to do to be ready?”
I told her she must know the LORD as her personal Savior! Then, the conversation went into how the Baptism in the Holy Spirit would give her overcoming power to live for Jesus!
She wanted my phone number to call me about this all.
I am telling you, and it isn’t just because of this incident, but God is truly getting us ready for a season of people coming up to us on the street and saying “What must I do to be saved!”
Why? Because they are going to see the glory on us! Not inside the church, even though they will see Him there also, but outside of the church!
Get ready because it is about to happen in mass!
Arise, shine; For your light has come!
And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the LORD will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.
“Lift up your eyes all around, and see:
They all gather together, they come to you;
Your sons shall come from afar,
And your daughters shall be nursed at your side.
Then you shall see and become radiant,”Isaiah 60:1-5.
