One of the strongest verses in the Bible concerning the Rapture of the Church

2 Peter 3:9-10…the Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness; but is longsuffering to “us-ward”, not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come…

First…The Day of the Lord will come (Judgement and Wrath upon an unbelieving world)
Second…God is longsuffering to us-ward now
Third…Us-ward is “us”…saved members of the body of Christ that will escape Tribulation
Forth…God does not want members of the body of Christ to perish during the Great Tribulation. The Rapture or the calling up of the Church is God’s Provision of escape from Great Tribulation
Fifth…Those who perish are those who do not repent now and accept Christ as personal Lord and Saviour
Sixth…That sinners (through the longsuffering of God now) would repent and accept Christ thus escaping the Tribulation by the Rapture of the Church…before God’s Wrath and Judgment comes on the great and terrible day of the Lord’s return

The Rapture of the Church is a blessing of God’s Grace that allows believers (us-ward) to be caught up to meet with Christ in the air. This calling up will include those dead in Christ and those who are alive. These people in the Rapture will be translated like Enoch in the twinkling of an eye. Right now God long-suffers toward us-ward, before the Rapture of the Church. Through preaching now God provides repentance and Salvation for men and women and is willing that none should perish.

This very strong verse from the Bible on the Rapture of the Church was taken from Saint Peter’s second Epistle chapter 3 from the ninth and tenth verse.

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation.

    Reminds me of that verse –
    No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.
    1 Corinthians 10:13.
    He allows us temptation to our limits and makes a way of escape – the biggest escape ! – The Rapture. Glory! Praise His Name. As our Father He cares for us through the worst and the best!
    Thanks Pastor Rick for another sharing.

    Let us continue with diligence in His vineyards, that many will be caught up in the Rapture with us. Amen.
