Raptureintheairnow -- part of our purpose-- to go into the World with the Good News.
The message of Redemption is to be carried into all the nations. We at RitaNow recognize this as a priority of God. God has given every Believer his plan. It's basic Christian knowledge 101. And so it is our prayer that we are part of this mission. God has left no stone unturned to move men toward himself. From before the earth was created God has had a plan that he has steadily progressed across time here on earth. His heart is warm toward people. He loves people. It is his desire that people draw closer and closer to him. He is not looking for reasons to reject anyone, but instead to draw closer together. He plans to help us accomplish just that. He has scheduled every day of our lives with this purpose.
He sent his son into this world to break the bondage of sin, to open the door of escape, and to remove the fear and dread of the penalty of sin. Jesus' precious blood covers Believer's sin forever throughout eternity. He has justified Believers. He has sent His Holy Spirit . We have the assurance that as we walk with him, he will direct our paths. He will bring his purposes to pass in our lives.
Today God is illuminating truth he wants all men to have as he prepares us for his soon intervention in man's history through the rapture. His heart is definitely warm towards people. Never before has there been such activity and excitement in the Courts of Heaven , since the first time Jesus came, as there is right now. Believers around the world are sensing this and reacting to it. More and more they see signs of our time being revealed around them. Signs we've been told would indicate his soon arrival. They can see and understand God is preparing the way before us for that day so anticipated among all Believers. Puzzling pieces of prophecy are suddenly not so puzzling but instead recognized for what they are. They are rapidly accumulating and creating the larger picture that the rapture is eminent. The bigger plan of God is rapidly shaping up.
There's such a hunger to know more and to fellowship with those like-minded souls as we anticipate the event of the ages just before us. People want to draw closer than ever to God. They are preparing themselves and praying, calling out to God. Concerned for lost loved ones; seeking answers. Desiring reassurance and wanting to discuss these things with each other. The wickedness of the world has left hearts and lives cold and empty, even grieving. They are searching for meaning in life--what is their purpose for being here--what should they be doing to prepare? Realization is dawning that this moment in time--this is it. There's not much time left if at all. Hear the Word of God on atonement which our God has provided for us to be covered . Know we are accepted.
Ephesians 1:4 God chose us to be his very own through what Christ would do for us; he decided to make us holy in his eyes, without a single fault. We stand before him covered with his love. Jude:24-25, "Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless before the Presence of his glory with exceeding joy..." The atonement covers, cleanses, and removes guilt.
We can't really serve him if we are constantly living in fear that God has some hidden sin to bring against us. He desires that we finish the race of perseverance strongly and has provided that means for us to do so. He wants us to know our lives are covered when our faith and trust are in him! He's a practical God. We need that reassurance that our position is safe. Now that's real security!
Don't focus your eyes on sin instead of God. Don't constantly remind others of the condition of the world. God's priority is to let men know that there is a total escape from the horrible bondage of sin. His son came that the door of escape would be open. His purpose is to make us "Son" conscious not "sin" conscious. He wants us to see Jesus lifted up so that he can draw all men to himself.
God wants us to know he will not let people go easily without a struggle. The Word tells us he won't lose any of his own. But two things can pull us out from under his covering. Rebellion and idolatry. The things that happen in the normal course of life will not separate you from the love of God or the beautiful protection of the atonement cover.
Rebellion is of witchcraft and idolatry is blasphemy. Both are considered rejection of Him. The person engaging in such activity has pulled himself away from God's love and covering of atonement. He has never really received the gift freely offered , is not believing and having faith in God. He was never really God's to begin with.
God is a "family planning" God. If one is a Believer then the other family members are highly favored by God and no stone will be unturned to reach that loved one. This is Good News indeed. Remember God loves that one, too--even more than you do. He will continue to reach out to him but he has to desire drawing closer to God for himself and become born again. God desires family. It's a high priority for him.
For those who choose him, the return of Jesus is now the priority of their lives. We are to prepare ourselves for that great day. For those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life --never to be blotted out as in the Old Testament , it will be glorious. The choice is yours today.
We've a message to share with the nations; the song of the Redeemed to sing. Join us in doing just that as we await and watch for Our Lord's soon return. May God bless this site and each one in the family of God who join their hearts with ours in praise of our personal, loving God who is carefully guiding us each step of the way as we prepare to dedicate this site to His Glory....for it is in His Name we gather to await him. Come let us fellowship together and worship the Name above all names who draws us close to his heart. May you feel the Presence of the Holy Spirit in this place. Amen
