After the Rapture, Is it Too Late to Get Saved?

by | Sep 26, 2014 | Women

In my last message, I described briefly how the rapture of believers and their sudden disappearance will impact the world. There will be unprecedented chaos and confusion. But will not be too late to turn to God.

If you find yourself left behind, call on Him. Cry out to Him. Just say, “God. Help me! Save me!” He is listening for your cry. It’s not too late for you to get right with God—to be on God’s side. But you must intentionally, deliberately place your trust in Him.

Confess your sin to God. Tell Him why you have not put your trust in Him until now. Tell Him you are sorry; you know you are a sinner. Tell Him you believe Jesus died for you, and ask Him to forgive you and come into your heart. He will. He will place His Spirit within you and will never leave you or forsake you. As you go through the terrible troubles ahead, He will be right there with you. And if you die before the Second Coming of Jesus, or if you endure to the end, God the Father will welcome you into His heavenly home, because you are now His child through your faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. And God the Father takes care of His children.

It’s critical for your eternal safety and wellbeing that you put your trust in Jesus right now. Don’t wait one more minute. Pray now. The following is a sample prayer you can pray:

Dear God,

I’m scared to death. My whole world has just come crashing down. I’m desperate for help. For someone to make sense out of this. To help me cope with the turmoil and confusion. I know I’m a sinner. I’m sorrier than I have ever been. I am willing right now to forsake my sin. I believe Jesus died for me. I’m asking You to apply His death to my sin and forgive me. I believe He rose from the dead to open Heaven for me. I’m asking You to give me eternal life in His Name. I invite Him to come into my heart and take control. Of everything. Please. In the days that are left until He returns, I will live my life for Him. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Amen.

If you put your trust in Jesus, He will rescue you. He will save you. At His Second Coming, He will deliver you from what seems like hell on earth.

Once you have established a personal relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ, you can talk to Him. Any time. All the time. Talking to God is called prayer. He is now your Father. Tell Him about your fears. Your confusion. Your anger. Your needs. Your desperation and hope. Ask Him to give you strength, wisdom, courage and direction as you live your life now under His authority. Ask Him to show you how to live in the midst of chaos. Talk to Him about anything. Everything. Nothing is too small for His attention. Or too big for His ability to do something about.

And He will have things He wants to say to you through His Word, the Bible.  If you don’t have a Bible, get one.  It will be the most important thing that you now own. Read the New Testament.  The first four books are biographies of Jesus.  The fifth book, Acts, describes the power of the Holy Spirit as He establishes the church. A power that is yours today.

The rest of the New Testament is composed primarily of letters that explain the teachings of Jesus. Except for the last book, Revelation, which is a prophetic account of what you are now experiencing. It reveals the end of God’s Story—the end of human history as we know it. Ask God to open your spiritual eyes and give you an understanding of the Truth as you read. Ask Him to speak to you as you read. He will give you promises and principles on which you can anchor your faith.

And if you need help expressing yourself in prayer, read the Psalms in the Old Testament, and make them your own prayers.

While the financial, institutional, national, personal, environmental storms will get worse during the next few years, your anchor of faith in Jesus that is rooted in God’s Word will hold. 

In the next and final message of this series, I will briefly describe where world events are headed.
