What Truly Amazes me

Main thought: To examine why the majority of Christians in the U.S. are so lethargic in regards to the Rapture
God had called me into being an intercessory prayer warrior in about 1996 and which by His Grace carried out passionately for 10 years until about 2006. During said time, He had laid MANY thoughts upon my spirit all of which I have documented and placed on our web page of http://www.rubornagain.com/food4thought.htm Most of the thoughts had to do about a hatred for a show of ‘religious works’ and a passion for relationship with Jesus. Also, another prevalent thought was the fact that our Lord was going to be removing His wise virgins VERY, VERY SOON! He laid on my heart many different times the parable of the wise vs. the foolish virgins as noted in Matt 25:1-13 and that the wise virgins were wise Christians that were ‘eagerly and expectantly’ waiting for Jesus while the foolish virgins were the laid back and complacent Christians relying on their ‘confession of faith’ to gain them entrance into the Wedding Feast of the Lamb not realizing that the foolish virgins also had a confession of faith in the coming Bridegroom but that had done them no good at all!
It truly blows me away of how very little if ANY pastors in and around this local area of Fairbanks, Alaska are preaching concerning the imminent catching away of our Lord. And yet, it seems that the ONLY wise virgins/Christians that I’m finding are those on the WWW many of which are sounding the alarm via Youtube videos. And it doesn’t seem to matter how intensely I try to warn close friends and relatives, it seems to just soar right over their heads like a gentle breeze. Oh they were all there initially to confirm with me how they weren’t getting excited about it because ‘no one knew the day or the hour’ He would remove His bride and so they were resting on their prior confession of Jesus as Lord and just ‘believing’ that they’d be taken when He actually finally did remove His bride.
I would share the fact that both sets of virgins represents Christians since the world is NOT waiting for our Lord & King, I would even share how 5 of the 7 churches in Revelations 2 & 3 were told to repent or else and that ONLY ONE of them was told that He would spare them from the testing that was to come upon the whole world (Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.) with NO RESPONSE AT ALL!
I truly can see how easily only about 10 % of those who confess Jesus as Lord in this nation will probably be taken in the upcoming Rapture along with all of the children too young to decide for themselves along with all those mentally disabled. I believe the other 90% of those that will make up the wise virgins (half of those that confess Jesus as Lord) as noted in Matt 25:1-13 will be from outside of the U.S. where those that confess Jesus as Lord could be killed by doing so. In other words, when our Lord tells us 50% were wise and 50% were foolish, I truly believe He was referencing the entire world of confessing Christians, NOT just one nation like the U.S.
The huge disadvantage to having this clear and urgent awareness in one’s spirit is the fact of living with sooo many of those that you know and love and would love to see join you in the upcoming Rapture and how nonchalant they all are. It truly is sad! If it wasn’t for the online wise virgins, it would be horrific, but, Praise our Lord, they are there and they are expecting Him just as much as I am!
This last January, I felt impressed to pen down some thoughts to this spirit of expectancy that I and the other wise virgins are having and placed those thoughts here; http://www.rubornagain.com/Doggies.htm
So, instead of me doing Youtube videos, since I’m retired and have no need for monetary gain outside of my federal retirement funds, I love finding those videos I enjoy and then just re-posting them on my channel of “Kevin O’Connor” and copying over the original video’s “Show More” info along with a hotlink back to the original video’s location and notify the originators of the videos of my willingness to remove said videos anytime they would want me to.
In conclusion; Heavenly Father, thank You for all that You have planned for Your Son and that You desire ONLY those that have prepared themselves for this infinitely precious time with You and our King! Ever keep the fire of desire burning hot in our hearts for Him and clothe us in His righteousness and help us to be about all that’s in Your heart for each one of us that are expecting His catching away soon for it’s in Jesus, Glorious, Eternal, Matchless Name we pray, Amen.
