During the Rapture, Jesus comes and CATCHES AWAY his BRIDE, the CHURCH The FIRST MENTION of this event in the chronology of Scripture is found in John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am The images are dark and frightening. Now in Matthew 25, Jesus wants to make sure his followers are going to be ready when these events take place. He wants them to be ready when he will come to claim his own. He wants us to be ready. Now before we jump into the parable of the ten virgins, I want to clarify some very important points ARE YOU READY? Matt.25:1-13. INTRODUCTION. A. Matt.25 - Parable that stresses importance of being ready for the Return of Jesus. 1. Jesus IS coming back, and when he returns will he find you awake and alert or sleeping and slumbering? 2. This is the BIG question from this parable. B. Satan wants us to be unprepared for the Lord's Coming. 1 To be ready for Jesus' coming, you must live in expectation of His return. Blessed are those slaves whom the master shall find on the alert (12:37). The homeowner should have been expecting the arrival of the thief. So, Jesus says, You too, be ready (12:40). If you're expecting a guest, especially an important guest, you live. We should strive to be ready for the coming of Christ Jesus by repenting of our sins daily. Matthew 24: 36 - 44 / Ready Intro: David Peterson, former pastor of the 1st Presbyterian Church in Spokane, WA told about a time when he was preparing his sermon
Jesus talked about this frequently, and the Bible predicts it throughout the pages of the Old Testament and New Testament. Jesus tells us about that day so we WON'T BE CAUGHT OFF GUARD, so we WILL BE READY. In Jesus' own words: So you MUST be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him. Matt. 24:44 (emphasis. You might even buy a 12-gauge, double-barreled shotgun so you can give the burglars a personal greeting. Now after you do all that, the burglars probably won't come for many nights. In fact, you'll probably not need those precautions for 999 days. But on Day 1000, you'll be glad you were ready. Jesus is coming like a thief in the night This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven' (Acts 1:9-11. T. R. Glover wrote: No day is named, that every day may be hallowed by the sense of the possibility of its being the day of His Advent Even today their sermons remain burned in my memory: The Bible says Christ will come like a thief in the night, when you least expect him. It will happen in the twinkling of an eye, with the sound of a trumpet. You must be ready at all times. The powerful cry, Jesus is coming! is seldom heard in God's house today

When Jesus was here 2,000 years ago, frequently, the Lord Jesus talked about the fact that he was going to come again. Sometimes Jesus made promises that He was going to come again. For instance in John 14:3 He said, I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself Jesus told us to be careful how we live and how we walk in our faith journey. He told us that He was coming back. He told us to trim our lamps so we can focus on Him. And be ready when He does. In Luke 21:34 Jesus says: But be on your guard. Don't let the sharp edge of your expectation get dulled by parties and drinking and shopping
The contemplation of these themes, when the soul feasts upon the blessed assurances of God, the apostle represents as tasting the powers of the world to come.--Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, p. 745 (1889). If you are right with God today, you are ready if Christ should come today.--In Heavenly Places, p. 227 (1891 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:8-9). Jesus told us in advance there would be a delay Jesus, we are looking forward to the time when You will come back again so that we can see You and be with You. We pray that You will help us to do the right things that You want us to do so that we will be ready for You whenever You come. Amen.

If you do have one, I hope that you will make sure that it is ready to protect you when the time comes.

Dearly beloved, if you have grown slack in your service, perhaps it is time now for you to reconsecrate your life fully for God's use When we do those things, we will be ready, no matter when he comes. Dear Father, we are watching and waiting for Christmas when we celebrate the day that you sent your Son, Jesus, to earth. We are also waiting for him to come again. Help us to be ready. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen Jesus said, But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven (Mark 13:32). Jesus could come tomorrow—or a century from now.

There is a moment at a concert when the house lights are dimmed, the orchestra is tuned and ready, bathed in the bright lights that focus our attention The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe. (For Jesus had already known from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him.) 65 So Jesus added, Because of this I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has allowed him. We need to constantly look toward heaven so when the time comes to depart, we'll be ready. Jesus told a parable illustrating that point in Luke 14. There, He said: A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready
You who read these lines, then, make sure that you are saved now for Jesus may come today. It is terribly dangerous for any unsaved sinner to live one day without Christ.

Jesus promised to come again. You won't hear much about it on the television or radio and you won't read much about it in the newspapers, but he promised he would return and we believe it!

The rapture will include ONLY the saints! There will be many fine, moral and religious people who will not be taken when Jesus comes. They may be church members Acts 1:11 makes it clear that Jesus himself will one day return to the earth. It will be this same Jesus who is coming again. Twice in one verse Luke uses the word same to tell us something crucial about the Second Coming. The same Jesus who left will one day return. And he will return the same way that he left Peter, for instance, mentions the two in the same breath: The day of the Lord will come like a thief.

Obviously, Jesus will come like a thief in the sense that the Second Advent will be a great surprise to those who if aren't ready
We need to remember that Jesus is 100% God and 100% human in one person. He has the Mind of God and the mind of the human, Jesus of Nazareth. And God the Son kept His human mind from knowing the time of His return. However, He tells the disciples that His return will be like the coming of the flood in the days of Noah: people will be eating and. Matthew 25:1-13, which is known as the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Bridesmaids, emphasizes the important of being prepared for Christ's return. Jesus described preparations for a wedding.
