Rapture…hello world

Hi Friends and Family:

Just want to share a conversation I had with a dear friend about the Rapture.

She called me to ask me this question:   “Does the bible refer to the Church as the Bride of Christ,  and as a “She”  when refering to the Church? 

I answered her:  ‘Yes.  The Church is called the Bride of Christ and always refers to the Church as a  ‘She.’.. I laughed because a bride is always a ‘she’ and a groom is always a “He” in the bible.  Just as God is always refered to as  a  ‘He’.

She then asked me:  “The Holy Spirit is a spirit who lives in either a male or a female because a spirit can reside in either, is that right?”  and I answered her, “The Holy Spirit is God’s Spirit that can reside in either male or female who accept Jesus, God’s Son as their savior.”

Then she turned to a bit of upset in her voice, because she wanted to know how people could teach; that in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 for the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way….and then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His Coming;   just how they could teach that the he be taken out of the way, how could HE be the Church if the church is a ‘SHE”?”

Smiling, as I always do, when people get upset over things that make no difference to  salvation, I told her not to worry about it.  Some people didn’t know the difference between a  HE and a SHE.  Just look around at what is going on in the world…She started to laugh and calmed down and I continued…….. 

I asked her this question:  “Where does the Holy Spirit live?”  She said, “In the world.”  I said, ‘where in the world?”  She said, “In us who receive the Spirit of Christ at salvation; He lives in our heart.”   I said to her:  “Child of God, if He lives in our heart and He is going to be taken out of the way, then the vessel’s He lives in are going to leave this old world and go home in the twinkling of an eye and then the Wicked One will be revealed and lawlessness with be unrestrained  as God pours out His Wrath on this old world.” 

She caught her breath and slowly let it out.  She said very slowly:  “This makes sense that when we are gone, the 144,000 are sealed and they will preach the everlasting gospel to the Jews and the ones they are sent too. And that will be the last gospel ever preached during the Tribulation and you can only get saved by accepting what the 144,000 from the tribes of Israel are preaching.  THAT is why they can’t be harmed during that time.!”

I say, “WOW! You learn fast.”  The Holy Spirit is teaching but many will not receive the love of the truth – they would rather argue – and split and strife about every thing they disagree on.   I say, “SUCK IT UP, and read the word.  They Holy Spirit is still teaching and He will teach you the Word if you will just listen.”  The only thing we must all agree on is that Jesus died on the cross, shed His blood, was buried and ressurected and sits at the right hand of God making intercession, sending the Holy Spirit to those who accept His sacrifice and sealing His on to be ONE WITH HIM. ”

Repent, believe and read….study to show thyself approved.
