A listener to the Channel asked this question before the Rapture:
“My question is regarding the beach scene (in a dream posted on the “Powerful Dream 600 mph Tsunami Hits San Francisco Mar 2, 2016” video) where the Rapture is mentioned. Jesus commanded the one dreaming to tell everyone about Him so they could be raptured. Does this mean everyone who calls on His Name (and everyone who has called on His name in the past) will be included in the Rapture? I honestly thought from your many conversations with Jesus that only His Bride will be raptured, and from Scripture that conditions must be met to “be counted worthy” to even be part of the Bride.
Jesus gave us a clear teaching on this on March 4, 2016 in the video/message “Who Will I Rapture?” But this was His teaching in a nutshell:
There are “groups” of His people. Just as the Body has arms, legs, hearts, kidneys – the Church has Believers, Disciples, Brides, etc. Each is given graces.
Let’s stop right here and define what is meant by “graces.” According to www.newadvent.org, grace can be defined this way:“In the first place, subjectively, grace signifies good will, benevolence; then, objectively, it designates every favor which proceeds from this benevolence and, consequently, every gratuitous gift. In the former (subjective) sense, the king’s grace grants life to the criminal condemned to death; in the latter (objective) sense the king distributes graces to his lieges.”
So, we can see that God – who in His infinite Mercy and Love plans out His will and path for each soul, also endows each soul with a specific amount of graces at birth, and during their life. Different souls, different parts of the Body are given varying amounts of grace. This is what the parable of the Talents in Matthew 25 is all about. The King giving out to each before He goes away – and then seeing what was done with it all on His return.
Each soul is given the freedom to do what they will with the graces, but all are responsible for what they DO do with them. It appears that those who simply believe that Jesus is Lord, do not spend a life mired in sin and the world and have faith that the Father will take them into His Heaven have received a lesser amount than say, the Brides – who according to His teaching to us on the channel, have been endowed with MUCH, and thus much is expected from them.
As a consequence – there are those who are JUST saved at the sight of Jesus when He comes and will go in the Rapture because of their instant repentance and faith. The other varying souls of those who already believed on Him are considered according to how they used their graces, however many that is. If they didn’t embrace them and follow the Lord TO THEIR ABILITY – they will stay to be further sanctified.
Not all are Brides – in fact, they are the minority. But they are the ones RIGHT NOW that the Lord has been training and getting more ready. He WANTS His Brides to all be with Him – there are still some that don’t get it, but the majority are responding and preparing. Not everyone COULD be a Bride, it is not in their makeup. Not everyone could be a heart, or a lung in a Body.
I Cor. 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired. 19 If they were all one member, where would the body be? 20 But now there are many members, but one body.21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; 23 and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, 24 whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, 25 so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.
Looking around, you may see many Believers, but not many that ever did, nor ever seem to be able to want to, go to the extent of walking with Him, adoring Him and being willing to drop all of “life” to be with Him in everything, the way that a Bride is expected to. There are people all around that believe in the Lord and try to obey His laws – but are clueless as to “pressing in” more. Good people, with good hearts – no judging or bitterness, nothing like that. But nothing like the depth the Lord wants to see in His Brides…. Surely they will be taken. Surely there are people all over the world who are living to the extent of what they understand about the Lord, even if they’ve never even HEARD of the Rapture – yet at the appearance of their Lord, they will run into His bosom, having finally seen what they knew and waited for in their hearts all their lives – without truly realizing what it was they were feeling inside.
As for the “church people” who did NOT go in the Rapture, the Lord had this to say to these:
“Now, I will tell you who should be worried: those who knew Me, knew what I called them to do, and followed their own flesh and self-will, nonetheless. Those who didn’t have time or money for the poor, but rather saved up their money to lavish on their comforts and trinkets. When I warned you seven years ago, I was quite serious. You were on the edge and I needed you to abandon yourself to My total will. Once you realized the seriousness of your condition, you repented and asked Me to help you leave those foolish things behind.
“But some of My children have been Christians for years and are still toying with their walk. They have an inkling they are on the edge, but consider My Mercy will cover for their laxness. No, My Children. My mercy is not for those who have held Me off. It is for the lost who have never known Me and the weak that falter with every other step. For those sheep who are big and strong but still have no time for Me, they will stay behind until they are perfected in charity, honesty and devotion to Me. For them, there is a choice to make.
