“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 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
The biggest thing whole gave me was I do not have ANY EXPECTATION. My expectation is in God only. If opening up the Red Sea did not change the Children of Israel I truly do not think anything I say will change anyone. If it does that is wonderful too.
I do what I do because I love doing it. I have no idea who reads my Blogs. The first month the Website Host e-mailed me my traffic. Since then I have not checked it once. These verses in my daily Bible reading is how I live:
“And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.” (I Thessalonians 4:11-12)
My nephew asked me if the people that did not make The Rapture get a second chance. I have been so focused on helping people make The Rapture I did not think about that until he asked. First I made sure he is trying to make The Rapture. I answered his question in “Love Affair.” I was going to put the Excerpt here, but I truly want people to make The Rapture. If people want to know the answer to his question they will have to get it from “Love Affair.” (Download at this Website)
Here I want to focus on making The Rapture. The Rapture is for people who have fulfilled their Purpose. At the Foundation of the World God saw our lives from the beginning to the end. He already knows who fulfilled their Purpose. What is taking place on Earth must line up to what is in Heaven. That means if your Purpose is not fulfilled on Earth at the time of The Rapture, but is fulfilled in Heaven you will be part of The Rapture. We must make sure our lives on Earth is in sync with Heaven. Our daily Bible reading is the best way to know we are lined up with Heaven as I said in my “I am sorry God did not Move like people thought He should have Moved” Blog.

Still looking over my life I was thinking my Dream had my Answer, my Promise and my Instructions. Our answer is our Love. Our promise is our Faith. Our instructions are Obedience. We are all different. God deals with us on an individual basis.
God told Abraham his Instructions:
“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee;” (Genesis 12:1)
Abraham was questioning God about his answer in a Vision:
“And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Elie’zer of Damascus?” (Genesis 15:2)
This shows God asked all of His Children the same Question. Abraham’s Answer to the Question from God was a child. God gave him his promise in a Vision:
“And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.”(Genesis 15:4)
With Solomon his Answer, his Promise and his Purpose was in his Dream:
“In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee. Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing. And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast ask riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.” (I Kings 3:5, 9-12)
Solomon Instructions came from his father David:
“Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat, And the pattern of all that he had by the spirit, of the courts of the house of the Lord, and of all the chambers round about, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the dedicated things:” (I Chronicles 28:11-12)
The Holy Spirit tells us who we are in Christ. We all have the same Destiny, which is to be conformed to the Image of Jesus. The Holy Spirit told me my Purpose of “Living Example.” Likewise God told Abraham his Purpose:
“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:” (Genesis 12:2)
God has given all of His Children a Dream. When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “I Have A Dream” he was talking about his Dream from God. That Dream leads us to our Destiny and Purpose. If you don’t remember your dream start praying for it now. God always answers the prayers of His Children. As soon as you get it write it down:
“And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” (Habakkuk 2:2)
The “run” in that Scripture means act on it. Everything starts with an action. It takes an Act of Faith to even start our next Level.
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS READY AND WAITING TO HELP US GET TO OUR DESTINY AND PURPOSE.
God’s Process is how we get to our Purpose. We need the Holy Spirit to help navigate us through God’s Process. Holiness and the Word of God is what keeps the Holy Spirit strong. Strong is how He does His Job best. My daily Bible reading is how to keep Him strong:
“Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit. But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.” (I Thessalonians 4:1-9)
My daily Bible reading today confirmed this Blog, my “Totally Innocent!!!” Blog and my “Silent Night” Blog:
“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (I Thessalonians 5:2-6, 14-15, 23)
ARE YOU KEEPING THE HOLY SPIRIT STRONG?
