To say being spiritually correct is the most important statement you can ever fulfill in your life is an understatement.
Nita and I are honored that you have come to our ministry website today and we know that God’s Word will make you free. “And ye shall know the truth and the truth will make you free.” John 8:32
There is so much misunderstanding concerning the rapture of the Church. It is another area of our Christian faith that needs to have biblical clarity.
Notice I said Biblical clarity not what someone or some church thinks but instead thus saith the Word of God.
The word RAPTURE does not appear in the King James Version of the Bible but does appear in the Latin Vulgate (The Latin Bible) and is called RAPTUS meaning to snatch out or be caught up.
In the Greek the word rapture is HARPAZO meaning to be caught up or seized by force.
I said that in the King James version of the Bible that word rapture does not appear but the definition of that word does appear: “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.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
Then again we see the act of being caught up: “After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven; and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, “come up hither” and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” Revelation 4:1
Concerning 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 when it states the dead in Christ shall rise first. It is talking about all those that have gone to heaven before this time and their spirits are there with the Lord but their bodies will be put back together and transformed into a glorified body and unite with their spirit that is already in heaven. The ones alive at the rapture of the church will also be caught up and their bodies will be changed as they are raptured up to the Lord in the sky into a glorified body.
Concerning Revelation 4:1 this is the Apostle John that is on the Isle of Patmos and he experiences a spiritual vision in which the Lord catches him up to heaven. This is not only for John to see what would happen at the rapture of the Church but is a prophecy from the Lord to the Church of what we will experience at the rapture of the Church.
The Church is made up of born again believers all over the face of the earth that will be raptured out of this world.
In order to be spiritually correct about the rapture of the Church you need to read and believe the Word of God concerning the rapture and also understand the character of God.
God’s character is described so well: “God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?” Numbers 23:19
Another powerful witness of God’s character: “For when God made PROMISE to Abraham, because He could swear by no greater, He sware by Himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. And so, after he (Abraham) had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. 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 (unable to be changed) of His counsel, confirmed it by an OATH. That by two immutable things, 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 an an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the vail; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made a high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedec.” Hebrews 6:13-20
God spoke to Abraham about the Arbrahamic Covenant of the many ways God was going to bless Abraham and his descendants.
The scriptures above says that by 2 immutable things which was God’s PROMISE to Abraham and God’s OATH that He swore to Himself because He could sware to no one higher to do exactly what God spoke to Abraham.
That same God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has also given to us as born again Christians the same integrity of His Word because: “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: THAT THE BLESSING OF ABRAHAM MIGHT COME ON THE GENTILES THROUGH JESUS CHRIST; THAT WE MIGHT RECEIVE THE PROMISE OF THE SPIRIT THROUGH FAITH.” Galatians 3:13-14
So we can be assured that the Abrahamic covenant belongs to us a born again Christians and all the blessings that go along with it.
We have the same God in our lives and He has promised us and all of mankind that His Word is sure and steadfast and cannot be changed.
God’s Word is IMMUTABLE (unchangeable)
Keeping all of this in mind let’s look further into the RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
The Rapture of the Church will be for all of the born again believers on the face of the earth being removed by the Lord Jesus Christ so we can meet Him in the sky as 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 talks about which is quoted above.
From the time of Revelation 4:1 which is the rapture of the church you do not read anything about the Church until Revelation the 19th chapter when the Church (the Bride of Christ) comes back with Jesus Christ to earth. There Jesus will speak the Word out of His mouth and the Battle of Armageddon will be ended as the enemies of the Lord are destroyed by His Word.
The 19th chapter of Revelation includes the 2nd coming of Christ and should not be confused with the Rapture of the Church as they are 2 different occurrences at 2 different times.
From Revelation chapter 6 through Revelation chapter 18 the TRIBULATION is going on the earth while the born again Christians are in heaven with the Lord. The TRIBULATION lasts for 7 years.
So when did the born again Christians get raptured out of this world and go to heaven as we see them coming back to this world in Revelation 19th chapter with Jesus Christ?
The rapture occurred in Revelation 4:1. That is how they were taken up to heaven in the first place.
In Revelation 19:17-21 you see that the ungodly are defeated by the Lord and the beast (anti-Christ) and his false prophet are cast into the lake of fire and the remnant of the armies and other enemies of God from the tribulation are slain.
In Revelation 20 you see that satan is bound for a 1,000 years by an angel of God in the bottomless pit and then satan is dealt with by the Lord after that time where he is cast into the lake of fire forever.
During this 1,000 year millennium reign of Jesus and born again Christians on the earth there is peace.
We have the assurance that there is going to be a rapture according to 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 and then see Revelation 4:1 to see another scripture on the rapture.
During the time that all born again Christians have been raptured “caught up” from this world into heaven there is a terrible 7 year tribulation going on the earth.
Revelation 6:16-17 describes this as the WRATH of God that will be released upon this whole earth these verses describes the 7 year tribulation on earth and the people who are not born again who remained on earth: “And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him (the Lord) that sitteth on the throne, AND FROM THE “WRATH” OF THE LAMB.” (Jesus Christ) FOR THE GREAT DAY OF HIS “WRATH” IS COME; AND WHO SHALL BE ABLE TO STAND.” Revelation 6:16-17
This is a description of the START of the 7 year tribulation and notice the scriptures says that IT IS THE “WRATH” OF GOD BEING POURED OUT ON THE EARTH. (YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE IN THE GROUP THAT REMAINS ON THE EARTH AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH).
Then there are some other scriptures that serve as confirmation that the Church consisting of born again Christians around the world WILL NOT go through the tribulation on earth, they are: “Much more then, being now justified by His blood, (being born again) we shall be SAVED FROM “WRATH” THROUGH HIM.” Romans 5:9
Then another confirmation scripture: “And to wait for His Son (Jesus Christ) from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, WHICH DELIVERED US FROM THE WRATH TO COME. Please see scripture in 1 Thessalonians 1:10
And another confirmation scripture: “For God hath not appointed us to “WRATH” but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:9
So you can see for yourself that the Lord gives us scripture after scripture as born again Christians that His wrath as He talks about it in Revelation 6:16-17 will not be for the Church of born again Christians just those that would not hearken to the voice of the Holy Spirit and ask Jesus Christ to come into their life as their Savior and be born again.
I believe as you have read through all of my teaching on: “ARE YOU SPIRITUALLY CORRECT?” that hopefully you have seen the importance of knowing your Bible like never before and using it as the final authority on this earth.
We not only have the scriptures mentioned above that there will be a rapture “to be caught up with the Lord” and this will happen BEFORE the 7 year tribulation but we also have scriptures that show what the Lord has done in the past to protect His people from His wrath upon this earth.
In these scriptures we see the character of God and of His love for His people.
Noah and his family were the only righteous people on earth when God’s wrath came upon the earth as the rest of the world were ungodly.
Noah and his family only consisted of 8 people and yet God saved the only righteous people on earth from His wrath. “In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them into the ark.” Genesis 7:13
In the account of the 2 wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah God is about to send His wrath upon those 2 cities for their utter godless life style and yet God sent 2 angels to recue Lot the nephew of Abraham and his wife and 2 daughters. The 2 sons in law of Lot’s 2 daughters refused to be rescued by the angels that the Lord sent.
The 2 angels that the Lord had sent to rescue Lot and his family took Lot, his wife and Lot’s 2 daughters from Sodom and Gomorrah. Lot’s wife disobeyed God when He told them through the angels not to look back at the cities and because Lot’s wife was still wrapped up in the evil of those cities she became a pillar of salt as she looked back. Genesis 19:1-29
In fact the 2 angels took the hands of the 4 and took them out of the city.
In the final account 3 people were saved from the wrath of God that was to occur on Sodom and Gomorrah and that was Lot and his 2 daughters.
All 6 of them could have been rescued from the wrath but some would not listen to the angel’s direction from the Lord.
So here we can look at the character of God in the past when His wrath has been poured out upon the earth and see that even with only 8 people left on the earth in the days of Noah and the flood and 3 people rescued in the days of Lot from Sodom and Gomorrah, GOD DELIVERS THE RIGHTEOUS FROM HIS WRATH.
After the 1,000 year millennial reign with Christ in Jerusalem there will be what is called the Great White Throne Judgment where the people that have never accepted the Lord as their Savior and have not been born again will be judged and found guilty of not accepting the Lord and will be sent to the lake of fire (hell) forever. Please see Revelation 20:11-15
Then the Lord creates a new heaven and earth and heaven will eventually come down to earth in Jerusalem and born again Christians will live in Jerusalem where Jesus Christ will rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords forever and we will be with the Lord. Revelation 21:1-27 and Revelation 22:1-21
God’s Word cannot lie.
God’s Word is immutable (never changing)
You can be incorrect on many things in this life but it is imperative that you ARE SPIRITUALLY CORRECT about your salvation because it determines where you will spend eternity, heaven or hell.
Being spiritually correct also determines if you will live a victorious Christian life on this earth while you are here keeping in mind that satan has come to kill you, steal from you and destroy you and everyone you love. But the Good News is that Jesus Christ has come to give you life and give it to you more abundantly. John 10:10
I have shared with you many areas of your life that satan tries to deceive you in and to be spiritually correct will give you love, joy and peace and victorious Christian living in this life. The importance of the statements I have made to you in this teaching is overwhelming it should absolutely get your attention.
There is no shortcut to intimate fellowship with the Lord and walking in victory in your life. It takes daily Bible reading, daily pray and praise and worship to the Lord and being in a good Bible teaching church while being a doer of the Word not just a hearer only, Amen?
Also it is imperative that you surround yourself with Godly people that are mature in the Lord and will help you live a Christian life so you can receive all of the amazing benefits of a life of living for the Lord including your eternal salvation with the Lord.

We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches in the United States
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE YET FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.

If you have come to this ministry website today and have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life and be born again, you are not here by accident, the Spirit of the Living God drew you here.
If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him. When you pray that prayer and accept the Lord please send us a Gmail to our website at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you accepted the Lord as your Savior and Lord and were born again. We want to rejoice with you and pray for you. Thank you (Please look up these scriptures: John 3:3 and Romans 10:9-10 it talks about you being born again).
Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
This includes the ones that not able to go to church because of disabilities and sickness or for one reason or another can’t attend church. Can you imagine how this Word of God would bless and comfort them? Please share this website with these folks also.
