WHAT EXACTLY IS THE RAPTURE?
The Word “Rapture” was coined to describe a series of phenomenom. It’s not exactly seen in any verse of scripture and hence there seemed to be divergence of understanding hence varying perceptions and beliefs
Some folks in their attempt to preach the Gospel amplify eternal judgement (heaven and hell) to threaten the unsaved folks in an attempt to win them but that’s definitely not the message of the Gospel.
There are other need based gospel such as;
"Come and Give your life to Christ and you will make heaven" "Run away from Hell" "Hell is real! Repent!" "Give your life to Christ Now! Tommorrow maybe too late!" "Is Your Name in the book of Life?" (click to read more) "Give your life to have a better life"
I’ve done a previous post on “I Gave my Life to Christ” where some of the issues above were adequately dealt with please kindly check it out.
You simply PREACH the Gospel to the Unsaved folks while you TEACH the Saved!
An unsaved man has no business with Teachings on Escatology, heaven or hell.
The above teachings too are not in anyway to threaten the believer!
It’s taught to believers for them to rejoice!
It is the hope the early believers had and to wit they encouraged one another in the face of peril and sword!
These days, it is taught primarily to invoke fear in believers which should not be the case.
At the end of this post, you’ll see why every believer should rejoice whenever and wherever they hear about The Rapture!
- Our spirit was saved! Our soul and body wasn’t exactly born again though
- So our soul is being saved! (by the renewing of your mind Romans 12:1-2)
- Then our body will be saved! (Rapture: Redemption of our bodies)
Enough of talking let us examine a couple of scriptures…
Are you ready?
- Romans 8:11-39 KJV
 But if THE SPIRIT OF HIM THAT RAISED UP JESUS FROM THE DEAD DWELL IN YOU, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODIES BY HIS SPIRIT THAT DWELLETH IN YOU.
 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye THROUGH THE SPIRIT do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
 For as MANY as ARE LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD, they ARE THE SONS OF GOD.
 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but YE HAVE RECEIVED THE SPIRIT OF ADOPTION, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
 THE SPIRIT itself BEARETH WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT, that WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD:
 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him , that we may be ALSO GLORIFIED TOGETHER.
 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with THE GLORY WHICH SHALL BE REVEALED IN US.
 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD.
 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
 Because the creature itself also shall be DELIVERED FROM THE BONDAGE OF CORRUPTION into the GLORIOUS LIBERTY OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD.
 For we know that the WHOLE CREATION GROANETH AND TRAVAILETH in pain together until now.
 And NOT ONLY THEY , but OURSELVES ALSO, WHICH HAVE THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THE SPIRIT, even we ourselves GROAN WITHIN OURSELVES, waiting for THE ADOPTION, to wit , THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY.
 For we are SAVED BY HOPE: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it .
 Likewise THE SPIRIT ALSO HELPETH OUR INFIRMITIES: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but THE SPIRIT itself MAKETH INTERCESSION FOR US with groanings which cannot be uttered.
 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because HE MAKETH INTERCESSION FOR THE SAINTS ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD.
 And we know that ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD to THEM THAT LOVE GOD, to them who are the CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.
 For whom he did FOREKNOW, he also did PREDESTINATE TO BE CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, that he might be THE FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN.
 Moreover whom he did PREDESTINATE, them he ALSO CALLED: and whom HE CALLED, them HE ALSO JUSTIFIED: and whom he JUSTIFIED, them HE ALSO GLORIFIED.
 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?
 He that SPARED NOT HIS OWN SON, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not WITH HIM ALSO FREELY GIVE US ALL THINGS?
 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is GOD THAT JUSTIFIETH.
 Who is he that condemneth? It is CHRIST THAT DIED, yea rather, that is RISEN AGAIN, who is even AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, who also MAKETH INTERCESSION FOR US.
 Who shall SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
 Nay, in all these things WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH HIM THAT LOVED US.
 For I AM PERSUADED, that neither DEATH, nor LIFE, nor ANGELS, nor PRINCIPALITIES, nor POWERS, nor THINGS PRESENT, nor THINGS TO COME,
 Nor HEIGHT, nor DEPTH, nor ANY OTHER CREATURE, SHALL BE ABLE TO SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD, WHICH IS IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD.
(Verse 28-39 simply put is Eternal Security (click to read more!)
For the sake of comprehension, Let us look at some few verses again in the New Living Translation
- Romans 8:16-25 NLT
 For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.
 And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.
 Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.
 For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are.
 Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope,
 the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in GLORIOUS FREEDOM FROM DEATH AND DECAY.
 For we know that ALL CREATION HAS BEEN GROANING as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
 And WE BELIEVERS ALSO GROAN, even though WE HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN US AS A FORETASTE OF FUTURE GLORY, for we long for OUR BODIES TO BE RELEASED from SIN and SUFFERING. We, too, WAIT WITH EAGER HOPE FOR THE DAY when GOD WILL GIVE US FULL RIGHTS AS HIS ADOPTED CHILDREN, including the NEW BODIES HE HAS PROMISED US. (John 14:2,3)
 WE WERE GIVEN THIS HOPE WHEN WE WERE SAVED. (If we already have something, we don’t need to hope for it.
 But if we look forward to something we don’t yet have, WE MUST WAIT PATIENTLY AND CONFIDENTLY.)
IN John 14:1-3 Jesus talked about going to prepare a place for us. It is figurative. The “mansions” simply put are Bodies prepared for us. Let us examine more evidences from scripture
- 2 Corinthians 5:1-21 NLT
 For we know that when this EARTHLY TENT WE LIVE IN IS TAKEN DOWN (that is, when we die and leave this EARTHLY BODY), we will HAVE A HOUSE IN HEAVEN, an ETERNAL BODY MADE FOR US BY GOD HIMSELF and not by human hands.
 WE GROW WEARY IN OUR PRESENT BODIES, and WE LONG TO PUT ON OUR HEAVENLY BODIES LIKE NEW CLOTHING.
 For WE WILL PUT ON HEAVENLY BODIES; WE WILL NOT BE SPIRITS WITHOUT BODIES.
 WHILE WE LIVE IN THESE EARTHLY BODIES, WE GROAN AND SIGH, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, WE WANT TO PUT ON OUR NEW BODIES so that these DYING BODIES WILL BE SWALLOWED UP BY LIFE.
 GOD HIMSELF HAS PREPARED US FOR THIS, and AS A GUARANTEE HE HAS GIVEN US HIS HOLY SPIRIT.
 SO WE ARE ALWAYS CONFIDENT, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord.
 For WE LIVE BY BELIEVING AND NOT BY SEEING.
 YES, WE ARE FULLY CONFIDENT, and we would rather BE AWAY FROM THESE EARTHLY BODIES, for then WE WILL BE AT HOME WITH THE LORD.
 So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, OUR GOAL IS TO PLEASE HIM.
 For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.
 Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, WE WORK HARD TO PERSUADE OTHERS. God knows we are sincere, and I hope you know this, too.
 Are we commending ourselves to you again? No, we are GIVING YOU A REASON TO BE PROUD OF US, so you can answer those who brag about having a spectacular ministry rather than having a sincere heart.
 If it seems we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit.
 Either way, CHRIST’s LOVE CONTROLS US. Since we believe that CHRIST DIED FOR ALL, we also BELIEVE that WE HAVE ALL DIED TO OUR OLD LIFE.
 HE DIED FOR EVERYONE so that those WHO RECEIVE HIS NEW LIFE will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will LIVE FOR CHRIST, WHO DIED AND was RAISED FOR THEM.
 So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now!
 This means that anyone who BELONGS TO CHRIST has BECOME A NEW PERSON. THE OLD LIFE IS GONE; A NEW LIFE HAS BEGUN!
 And ALL OF THIS IS A GIFT FROM GOD, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And GOD HAS GIVEN US THIS TASK OF RECONCILING PEOPLE TO HIM. (i.e Salvation as well as the redemption of our bodies remains a gift! Not a reward! No requirements to merit it!)
 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, NO LONGER COUNTING PEOPLE’S SINS AGAINST THEM. And HE GAVE US THIS WONDERFUL (too good to be true) MESSAGE OF RECONCILIATION.
 So we are CHRIST’s AMBASSADORS; GOD IS MAKING HIS APPEAL THROUGH US. WE SPEAK FOR CHRIST WHEN WE PLEAD, “COME BACK TO GOD!”
 For GOD MADE CHRIST, WHO NEVER SINNED, to be THE OFFERING FOR OUR SIN, so that WE could BE MADE RIGHT WITH GOD THROUGH CHRIST.
Before we continue let us quickly examine how true the statement in Verse 5 above.
 GOD HIMSELF HAS PREPARED US FOR THIS, and AS A GUARANTEE HE HAS GIVEN US HIS HOLY SPIRIT.
First and foremost
- 2 Corinthians 1:18-22 NIV
 But as surely as God is faithful, our message to you is not “Yes” and “No.”
 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silas and Timothy—was not “Yes” and “No,” but in him it has always been “Yes.”
 For no matter HOW MANY PROMISES GOD HAS MADE, they are “YES” in Christ. And so through him the “AMEN” is spoken by us to the glory of God.
 Now it is GOD WHO MAKES both US and YOU STAND FIRM IN CHRIST. HE ANOINTED US, (You see Anointed! past tense o! and you’re still praying with fasting for anointing huh? Acts 10:38)
 SET HIS SEAL OF OWNERSHIP ON US, and PUT HIS SPIRIT IN OUR HEARTS AS A DEPOSIT, GUARANTEEING WHAT IS TO COME. (which is the redemption of our bodies)
Secondly, here’s another evidence.
- Ephesians 1:13-14 NIV
 And you (gentiles) also were included in Christ when you heard THE MESSAGE OF TRUTH, THE GOSPEL OF YOUR SALVATION. WHEN YOU BELIEVED, YOU WERE MARKED IN HIM WITH A SEAL, THE PROMISED HOLY SPIRIT,
 WHO IS A DEPOSIT GUARANTEEING OUR INHERITANCE until THE REDEMPTION OF THOSE WHO ARE GOD’S POSSESSION—to the praise of his glory.
- Ephesians 4:29-30 NLT
 Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.
 And do not bring sorrow to GOD’s HOLY SPIRIT by the way you live. Remember, he has IDENTIFIED YOU AS HIS OWN, GUARANTEEING THAT YOU WILL BE SAVED ON THE DAY OF REDEMPTION. (…of our bodies)
I hope you’ve seen and thus persuaded based on the inffalible evidences from scripture that the statements in 2 Corinthians 5:5 is so accurately and very precisely correct!
You see why a believer CAN NEVER MISS THE RAPTURE?
John 14:16 KJV
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that HE MAY ABIDE WITH YOU FOR EVER;
He doesn’t come and go like for folks under the Old Covenant, He is rather fully and permanently resident (abiding) in us!
Let us continue, I have two more passages of scripture for you. I say with all assurance that you will certainly rejoice if you really caught the understanding.
1 Corinthians 15:1-58. I have done an adequately explicit explanation to verse 1-32 in my post “I DIE DAILY SCAM” (click to read more) so I would just start from verse 30-58. Let us examine it in the New Living Translation
The letters to the Corinthians Church was to address factions and divisions on so many issues: marriage, gifts of the Spirit, communion, resurrection of the dead etc.
Apostle Paul in this chapter from verses 1-33 was defending the message of the Gospel (Death, Burial and resurrection) of Christ according to scriptures as well as the messengers (the many eye witnesses)
Let us begin to read.
- 1 Corinthians 15:30-58 NLT
 And why should we ourselves RISK OUR LIVES hour by hour?
 For I swear, dear brothers and sisters, that I FACE DEATH DAILY. This is as certain as my pride in what Christ Jesus our Lord has done in you.
 And what value was there in fighting wild beasts—those people of Ephesus—if there will be no resurrection from the dead? And if there is no resurrection, “Let’s feast and drink, for tomorrow we die!”
 Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, for “bad company corrupts good character.”
 Think carefully about what is right, and stop sinning. For to your shame I say that some of you don’t know God at all.
 But someone may ask, “How will the dead be raised? WHAT KIND OF BODIES WILL THEY HAVE?”
 What a foolish question! When you put a seed into the ground, it doesn’t grow into a plant unless IT DOES FIRST.
 And what you put in the ground is not the plant that will grow, but ONLY A BARE SEED of wheat or WHAT EVER YOU ARE PLANTING.
 Then GOD GAVE IT THE NEW BODY HE WAIT IT TO HAVE. A different plant grows from each kind of seed.
 Similarly there are DIFFERENT KINDS OF FLESH—one kind for HUMANS, another for ANIMALS, another for BIRDS, and another for FISH.
 There are also BODIES IN THE HEAVENS and BODIES ON THE EARTH. THE GLORY OF THE HEAVENLY BODIES IS DIFFERENT FROM THE GLORY OF THE EARTHLY BODIES.
 The sun has one kind of glory, while the moon and stars each have another kind. And even the stars differ from each other in their glory.
 It is the SAME WAY WITH THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. Our EARTHLY BODIES ARE PRAYED IN THE GROUND WHEN WE DIE, but they will be RAISED TO LIVE FOREVER.
 Our bodies are BURIED IN BROKENNESS, but they will be RAISED IN GLORY. They are BURIED IN WEAKNESS, but they will be RAISED IN STRENGTH.
 They are BURIED AS NATURAL HUMAN BODIES, but they will be RAISED AS SPIRITUAL BODIES. For just as there are NATURAL BODIES, there are also SPIRITUAL BODIES.
 The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, BECAME A LIVING PERSON.” But the LAST ADAM—that is, CHRIST—is a LIFE-GIVING SPIRIT.
 WHAT COMES FIRST IS THE NATURAL BODY, then THE SPIRITUAL BODY COMES LATER.
 Adam, the first man, was made from the DUST OF THE EARTH, while Christ, the second man, CAME FROM HEAVEN.
 EARTHLY PEOPLE are like the EARTHLY MAN, and HEAVENLY PEOPLE are like the HEAVENLY MAN.
 Just as we are now like the EARTHLY MAN, WE WILL SOMEDAY BE LIKE THE HEAVENLY MAN.
 What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that OUR PHYSICAL BODIES CANNOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD. THESE DYING BODIES CANNOT INHERIT WHAT WILL LAST FOREVER.
 But let me REVEAL TO YOU A WONDERFUL SECRET. We will not all die, but WE WILL ALL BE TRANSFORMED! (Rapture niyen o)
 It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, THOSE WHO HAVE DIED WILL BE RAISED TO LIVE FOREVER. And WE WHO ARE LIVING WILL ALSO BE TRANSFORMED.
 For OUR DYING BODIES MUST BE TRANSFORMED INTO BODIES THAT WILL NEVER DIE; OUR MORTAL BODIES MUST BE TRANSFORMED INTO IMMORTAL BODIES.
 Then, WHEN OUR DYING BODIES HAVE BEEN TRANSFORMED INTO BODIES THAT WILL NEVER DIE, this SCRIPTURE WILL BE FULFILLED: “Death is swallowed up in victory.
 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”
 For SIN IS THE STING THAT RESULTS IN DEATH, and THE LAW gives sin its power.
 BUT THANK GOD! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
 So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. ALWAYS WORK ENTHUSIASTICALLY FOR THE LORD, for you know that NOTHING YOU DO FOR THE LORD IS EVER USELESS.
GLORY TO GOD!!!
- 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV
 But I would NOT HAVE YOU TO BE IGNORANT, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that YE SORROW NOT, EVEN AS OTHERS WHICH HAVE NO HOPE.
 For IF WE BELIEVE THAT JESUS DIED AND ROSE AGAIN, even so them also which sleep in Jesus WILL GOD BRING WITH HIM.
 For this we say unto you by THE WORD OF THE LORD, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
 Wherefore COMFORT ONE ANOTHER WITH THESE WORDS.
I rejoice in the Holy Ghost!
You’ve read the scriptures yourself and you’ll agree with me that all those silly visions of “Rapture and only 10 people in the Whole World making it to Heaven” etc are really very very dumb! lame! silly! ridiculous! Nothing but 100% Falsehood from the abyss of hell!
When someone tells you stuffs like;
“The rapture was supposed to be last week Sunday but the Church wasn’t ready hence God re-scheduled it”
“In fact, He sent me to warn believers to watch and pray because the end time is nearer than before”
“Your mansion in heaven was abadoned because you refused to “sow seed”into his project”
“The Angels building it wanted to use Glass and Marble walls etc. before then you told a lie one day like that and then God told them to use ordinary concrete, wood and carpet”
“The roofing of your heavenly mansion wasn’t completed because you stopped paying tithe and hence the Angels ran out of building materials since you’ve stopped laying up treasures in heaven”
And so many others in that category, you’ll agree with me that it’s either secondary to pure ignorance or a very chronic intentional deception which is tantamount to sorcery!
It has gone beyond preachercraft! Even fans of “48 laws of power” wouldn’t do that sort of manipulation.
Don’t be mad right now that you’ve been deceived… You’re not alone!
I was brainwashed too but thank God for the Truth!
I sufferred terribly for years believing some of those crappy senarios I painted
The Truth is what Librates (John 8:32)
John 8:31-32 KJV
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
We have the Earnest/First fruit/First Installment/Seal of the Spirit Now!
This is the GUARANTEE that we will RECEIVE the Full Payment at the Day of Redemption!
That is when (contextually) Romans 8:11 will be fulfilled!
- Romans 8:11 KJV
But if the Spirit of him that RAISED UP JESUS FROM THE DEAD DWELL IN YOU, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODIES BY HIS SPIRIT THAT DWELLETH IN YOU.
The Spirit of Him that raised up JESUS from the Dead (which DWELLS in you already) Will Quicken Your Mortal Bodies!
It will give life to your mortal (corruptible) bodies so as to take on immortal (incorruptible) bodies!
Earthly bodies for Celestial Bodies!
Dying and Decaying bodies for Undying and Undecaying ones!
A body that falls sick for a body that will never took ill!
Glory to God!
You don’t have to greet nor be greeted “stay rapturable” since you now know better!
“When the roll is called up yonder… “
“Eternal, eternal life, I want to reach eternal life Lord save my soul… “
“When you come to collect your people remember me o Lord… ”
“O when the saints are marching in…”
” When he shall come with trumpet sound o may I then in Him be found, dressed in his righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the Throne…” etc.
Such songs were composed secondary to ignorance (shallow understanding) of The Word! Since you now know better, you should completely remove them from your playlist.
At this point it all sounds too good to be true you’re still not convinced? Check out my previous posts linked to this one then check this out in as many Bible versions as possible.
- John 10:27-29 KJV
 MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, and I KNOW THEM, and THEY FOLLOW ME:
 And I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE; and THEY SHALL NEVER PERISH, NEITHER SHALL ANY MAN PLUCK THEM OUT OF MY HAND.
 MY FATHER, WHICH GAVE THEM ME, IS GREATER THAN ALL; and NO MAN IS ABLE TO PLUCK THEM OUT OF MY FATHER’S HAND.
This text just like in Romans 8:28-39 referenced earlier (perhaps you look it up again) simply put is ETERNAL SECURITY! (click to read more)
The statements are written in red ink in the KJV which means Jesus himself said so. He couldn’t have been paranoid to say that. He said exactly what he meant and meant exactly what He said!
Eternal Life meant eternal life simple! Look into Greek/Hebrew/English It’s the same! Ever lasting life/ Life without end! Iye ainipekun [in my mother tongue].
This life is like an irreversible nuclear reaction. So there’s really nothing no man /angels /demons /principalities and powers in this present age or in the future, could possibly do to the New Creature in Christ to make him/her old again!
- Hebrews 6:16-20 KJV
 For men verily SWEAR by THE GREATER: and an OATH FOR CONFIRMATION is to them an end of all strife.
 Wherein God, willing MORE ABUNDANTLY TO SHEW UNTO THE HEIRS OF PROMISE the IMMUTABILITY OF HIS COUNSEL, CONFIRMED IT BY AN OATH:
 That by TWO IMMUTABLE THINGS (His promise and confirmatory oath), in which it was IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE, WE MIGHT HAVE A STRONG CONSOLATION, WHO HAVE FLED FOR REFUGE TO LAY HOLD UPON THE HOPE SET BEFORE US:
 WHICH HOPE WE HAVE as an ANCHOR OF THE SOUL, both SURE and STEADFAST, and which entereth into that within the veil;
 Whither THE FORERUNNER IS FOR US ENTERED, even JESUS, made an HIGH PRIEST FOR EVER after the order of Melchisedec.
- Hebrews 7:24-25 AMPC
 But HE HOLDS HIS PRIESTHOOD UNCHANGEABLY, because HE LIVES ON FOREVER.
 THEREFORE HE IS ABLE ALSO TO SAVE TO THE UTTERMOST (COMPLETELY, PERFECTLY, FINALLY, and FOR ALL TIME and ETERNITY) THOSE WHO COME TO GOD THROUGH HIM, since HE IS ALWAYS LIVING TO MAKE PETITION TO GOD and INTERCEDE WITH HIM and INTERVENE FOR THEM.
- Jude 1 AMPC
 NOW TO HIM WHO IS ABLE TO KEEP YOU WITHOUT STUMBLING or SLIPPING or FALLING, and to PRESENT [YOU] UNBLEMISHED (BLAMELESS and FAULTLESS) BEFORE THE PRESENCE OF HIS GLORY in TRIUMPHANT JOY and EXULTATION [with UNSPEAKABLE, ECSTATIC DELIGHT]–Jude 1:24-25
 To the one only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory (splendor), majesty, might and dominion, and power and authority, before all time and now and forever (unto all the ages of eternity). Amen (so be it).
This post might have challenged your understanding and possibly everything you’ve always believed for years but I hope it’s clearer now? This is why we speak and defend the assurance of the gospel without mincing words.
If this post blesses you, kindly do well to share with others to be blessed and librated too.
