The Rapture: Wait for Deliverance
As we are today, many of the new followers of Yeshua were living in a world of chaos. The Apostle Paul encouraged and exhorted them to wait for the Rapture that would deliver them from the wrath to come.
We don’t know God’s timing, but we see many of the “signs” of His return are speeding up. Thus it is important for us to wait with patience and expectation.
And you became followers of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became examples to all in Macedonia and Achaia who believe. For from you the word of the Lord has sounded forth, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place. Your faith toward God has gone out, so that we do not need to say anything. For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.
PRAY FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO USE THIS TIME OF WAITING TO REACH PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO HOPE.
