Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall
come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the
trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are
still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord
in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
Since you have kept my command
to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon
the whole world to test those who live on the earth.
REASONS FOR THE RAPTURE:
I look back at my life
did I survive to this day?
So many times there was harm
And death was

And give me strength to carry

of the Titanic has incredibly close parallels to the biblical plan of salvation. Just as the great pleasure ship struck an
iceberg and sank, this great world—with all its inhabitants—is slowly sinking into the cold grip of death. As
with the Titanic, where only those passengers who believed that they were in impending danger looked to the lifeboats, so
only those who believe that they are in mortal danger will look to the Lifeboat of the Savior, Jesus Christ. The great “iceberg”
that will take the world to an icy grave is the Moral Law—the Ten Commandments.
Here is the evidence that
we are sinking: Jesus said that if we look with lust, we commit adultery in our heart. No one who has had sex outside of marriage,
or any liar, or any thief will enter heaven. The Bible says that if we hate someone, we are guilty of murder. We fail to put
God first. We make a god in our image. We break all the Commandments. If we stay with the “ship,” we will perish
on the Day of Judgment, when all of our sins come out as evidence of our guilt. God, however, is rich in mercy and doesn’t
want anyone to go to hell. He made a way for us to be saved. Jesus Christ, the One whom the Bible calls the “Captain
of our salvation,” gave His life so that we could have a place in the lifeboat. He took our punishment upon Himself,
suffering on the cross for us. We broke God’s Law, but He paid our fine. Then He rose from the dead, defeating death.
The moment we repent and trust in Him alone for our eternal salvation, God will forgive us and grant us the gift of eternal
Don’t hesitate. You may wait until it’s too late! It was reported that some of the lifeboats
that left the Titanic early were only half full. Many more on board could have been saved, but they refused to believe that
the great “unsinkable” ship was sinking. They perished because their faith was misguided. Don’t be like
them. Believe the gospel. Repent and trust Jesus Christ today ...and God will never let you down.
Dream March 12, 2013
I sometimes have dreams that are very clear, precise and prophetic. When I do, they
normally occur exactly as I have seen within a short period of time after the dream. Last night, I had one of those
dreams. Normally, I only share these dreams with those in my inner circle. However, this time I feel it necessary
to share with all who will read this post.
As you can clearly see, there are only 70 fans for the waitingforjesus.com
facebook page. Last night I was shown this number on the page. As I looked at the current total number of fans,
the number began to increase. It started to roll up. For about 30 seconds it rolled up about 100 fans per second. Then
the number climbed so fast that I could only read the one hundred thousand number place marker. As it continued to climb,
I eventually could only read the one million number place marker.
I have no idea the actual reason behind the fan
count exceeding one million in only a few minutes. But this I know…something happened on such an enormous magnitude
that people were calling on the Name of Jesus. I believe this was a visual picture of people having their names written
in the Book of Life at the moment of their Salvation.
I am in no way saying waitingforjesus.com will ever have a
million fans. However, I knew that something occurred that woke people up and they were so shaken that countless people
called out to Jesus. When I awoke this morning, the headlines included a warning to California residents to prepare
for living two weeks on their own due to the alarming increased earthquake activity in Southern California. Also in
the news, a warning to the residents in Louisiana near the Assumption Parish sinkhole about the possibility of deadly hydrogen
sulfide being released from the earth and increased instability in the area. The headlines just remind me of Joe Brandt’s
earthquake vision of 1937. What he saw occurred in the spring, March or April of some year in the future.
know if Joe’s vision will ever come to pass. But this I know beyond a shadow of a doubt…at some moment
in the future, hearts are going to turn to Jesus in an instant. I pray yours is already there. Shalom
we study Bible Prophecy?
the answer is Yes! Bible Prophecy (also known as Eschatology) is the branch of theology that is concerned with the Time
of the End, the Second coming of Jesus Christ and the Final Judgment of God. The Bible tells us in Revelation 1:3, “Blessed
is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it,
because the time is near”. By studying Bible Prophecy, we can better understand the future and God’s ultimate
plan for us all. Additionally, we can see the need to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth.

Prayer Guideline For Winning Family & Friends To The Lord
1. PRAY AGAINST THE ROOT OF THE
PROBLEM - Why isn’t your loved one a Christian? What keeps them out of church? Were they offended years ago? Do
they hold a grudge against someone who is a Christian? Find out the root cause of their rejection of Christ and pray against
the root. When Jesus cursed the fig tree he cursed it as its root, causing it to die. Do not pray a general prayer such as,
"Lord save my husband," but pray against the root problem that has kept them from Christ! (Scriptures: Matthew 21:19-21;
PRAY AGAINST ANY SPIRIT THAT MAY HAVE BOUND THEM - If your loved one is radically against Christianity or is almost
violent when you mention church or Christ, an unclean spirit may have bound them. It is not possible to set them free if they
do not want to be free. However, you can fast and pray that the spirit will be bound and your loved one released by the demonic
grip. Remember, Jesus said, "This kind (of spirit) goes not out but by prayer and fasting." Pray a prayer asking
the Holy Spirit to bind the influence of the demonic power and to release conviction on your loved one. (Scriptures:
Ephesians 6:12; Matthew 17:21; Matthew 12:29; Matthew 18:18)
3. PRAY THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL OPEN THEIR EYES - Paul taught that the gods of this
world have blinded the understanding of those who are lost. Paul also prayed that the eyes of our understanding would be open.
Paul was not speaking of natural eyes, but of spiritual eyes or understanding. People can read the Bible and hear preaching
but it never moves them because it doesn’t make sense to them. Once their understanding is opened, the light of the
Gospel can penetrate their dark conscience and minister life to their spiritually dry soul. (Scriptures:
2 Corinthians 3:14; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 1:18)
4. PRAY FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT’S CONVICTION TO STRIKE THEIR HEARTS - Conviction
is when the Holy Spirit suddenly arrests the mind and heart of a sinner and begins to reveal to them that they need Christ.
This word of conviction is a marvelous supernatural manifestation of God’s love toward those who are in spiritual darkness.
Pray and ask the Lord to begin convicting them of their sins. (Scriptures: John 16:8; Acts 2:37)
5. PRAY FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO
PLANT THE SEED OF GOD’S WORD - God’s word is compared to a seed. The Greek word is spermata from where we
derive the English word sperm. The phrase "seed of the word" means the living, activated life that is in the word.
When you witness to a person, you may believe that your conversation was ignored or your testimony was in vain. However, with
each testimony you are planting the seed of God’s word, and the word cannot return void. It may take time to break through
the hard, stony soil of a person’s heart, but keep plowing and planting until something you do or say begins to click
with the other person! (Scriptures: Mark 4:14-32; Isaiah 55:11)
Revelation 22:7 - "Behold, I am coming soon!"
All around the world, people are waiting for Jesus!
