Be Watchful and Pray

"Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36).

Vision: Rapture Warning to Those Who Will be Left Behind

This vision is a warning to the lukewarm and worldly Christians, beware Christ is coming soon! The Lord Jesus Christ has personally warned us as a family to be always READY and WATCHFUL and that we would not be receiving a ‘special’ warning. His coming must be a surprise to His children who are expecting Him and it must be like a thief at night. Let us therefore be WATCHFUL!

“I, Charis, had a vision from the Lord this morning (June 28, 2015) soon after our morning prayers, I saw myself and our ministry people in our home church service with many other people I didn’t know. While I was looking around, I suddenly saw many of the people disappear with only a few remaining, among whom were two members of our ministry. I heard these two members screaming that they were left behind while hurling abusive and hurtful insults at one another. They were kind of blaming each other for being left behind. I also saw many young children and other wicked people in our street who were left behind carrying on as if nothing had happened. While these two people were arguing, I saw myself not being left behind, but in a new body of shining light momentarily left to comfort and encourage these two people and the others who were left behind (1 Corinthians 15:51-52;49; 58). I spoke up and said to them, 'don't worry or lose hope because the Lord will be coming again, but your entry into Heaven would be much, much harder than the first time' (Meaning the present time; Also, these words were uttered by me but the Lord put them in my mouth) (Revelation 7:14). After speaking a thought occurred to me in the vision that the devil will cause many Christians to be mutilated, but they must allow it than to deny the Lord and lose their salvation and entry into Heaven” (Revelation 20:4; Luke 17:33). This was the end of the vision.

On October 13, 2014 I (Brother Glenn) received a vision from the Lord that there would be two raptures, one before the great tribulation and another during or after the great tribulation. In this vision above to Charis, the Lord confirms a second rapture and the severe hardship disobedient Christians who would be left behind would face before entering Heaven if they overcame. Regardless of your beliefs on this subject (whether pre-trib., during, or post-trib. rapture), the key point we are emphasizing is that you should be prepared for the Lord’s soon coming.

Stay Alert and Pray

In this brief work, the Lord commanded me to warn both Christians and unbelievers to be watchful and work out their salvation, and to live expecting His coming at any given moment (Revelation 22:12). Because the message concerning the Lord’s coming has been preached since the time of the apostles, many people disregard today’s warning about the Lord’s coming. We should "be sober (self-controlled) and vigilant (alert) [because] your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings" (1 Peter 5:8-9).

The Bible also warns that we ... must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ He promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.”" (2 Peter 3:3-4). In truth, the Lord has been confirming His soon coming to many faithful and sincere brethren around the world, to comfort, encourage and cause us to focus on Him unswervingly.

In numerous Scriptures, we are warned that the Lord’s coming would occur suddenly and unexpectedly, like a thief at night (1 Thessalonians 5:2; 2 Peter 3:10; Revelation 16:15). People will be going about doing their business – eating, drinking, being entertained, marrying and divorcing, etc., oblivious to the calamity that awaits, just like the days of Noah before the flood and the days of Sodom and Gomorrah (Matthew 24:37-41; Luke 17:28-35).

For those who are discerning, the coming of the Lord is closer in our time than the time of past generations. As evidence, there are many confirmations from the Lord Himself through countless visions to many people, both saved and unsaved. On this website alone we have shared warnings of the Lord’s coming almost ten times (refer to this page for a list of visions). Additionally, we have been seeing escalation in the fulfillment of prophetic events, for example (and this is only a very small fraction):
  • Laws and judicial pronouncements are increasingly being passed legalizing sin (Romans 1:26-27; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; Isaiah 5:20).
  • Several treaties and "peace" agreements are in the works (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
  • Increase in false teachers and false prophets, many claiming strange gifts and focusing on materialism (2 Timothy 4:3-4; 1 John 4:1; 2 Peter 2:1).
  • Increasing persecution of Christians who stand for Biblical truth (2 Timothy 3:12; John 15:19; Revelation 2:10; Mark 13:13).
  • Signs in the sky (Joel 2:30-31).
  • Globalization and the massive increase in knowledge (Daniel 12:4).
Be Prepared

Once again, brothers and sisters, we wish to reiterate that it is not our intention to stir up controversy or waste time arguing or creating quarrels about the Lord’s coming and other Biblical subjects (2 Timothy 2:23; Titus 3:9). The bottom line is this: the time to be ready is NOW, because tomorrow is not promised and one’s death can come any day (Proverbs 27:1; James 4:13-14). Truly, the path to everlasting life is narrow and difficult. People in the world and world leaders may seem to have it easy on the wide road for they are already readying themselves to embrace a new world order with false hope; however, we know that only the narrow road leads to eternal life (Matthew 7:13-14). Like the ten virgins, we may all grow weary and sleep, but please don't be like the five foolish ones who were not prepared! We should be like the five wise virgins, having our lamps filled with oil by being Spirit-filled and maintaining a lifestyle of praying and studying God's Word always, being grateful, worshiping, witnessing, and being obedient to God, so that when the Master suddenly comes, we are ready and prepared to enter the Marriage Supper (Matthew 25:1-13).

To start preparing, please start by praying this Prayer of Repentance. For any questions about this ministry or this week’s message, feel free to contact us .

Grace in Watchfulness,

Brother Glenn and Preparing for the Kingdom Ministry Team.
