There are many things calling for your attention in life but only one thing really matters the most. The most important thing is securing the assurance of spending your eternity with God. After your education, what next? After getting married and raising a family, what next? After rising to the peak of your career, what next? Eventually death will come if Jesus delays His coming, but where will you spend eternity?
The mystery about the Rapture, unravelled by the Holy Spirit through Apostle Paul in our text was mentioned by the Lord Jesus Christ in John Chapter eleven, during an important conversation with Martha when He went to raise Lazarus from the dead. When Jesus spoke about the Rapture, neither Martha nor the disciples understood what He was talking about because it was still a mystery.
God fights for those who believe in Jesus, and have Him as their Lord and personal Saviour. Because God was with Joseph, when his brothers tried to kill his dreams, He turned their evil plot around to favour Joseph in the end. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. Victory is guaranteed for those who are on the Lord's side. The battle line has been drawn and you must declare your position.
Beloved, are you in any trouble and worried about how things will turn out? Worry no more because you shall come out of that trouble, in Jesus name. And when you come out, it will be as though you were never in such trouble. Do you remember the three Hebrew children, Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego? They all came out of the fire of King Nebuchadnezzar without burns nor smell of smoke.
There is no day that passes under the sun without the Lord loading us with benefits. This understanding is needful so that we can live in constant expectation of these benefits and praise God accordingly as we take delivery of them. They that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. The Lord preserves our lives. He protects us, our property and our possessions. He provides for us and gives us perfect peace.
