Howdy Friends.

I just want to ask you a question today. I believe it is the most important question that we can answer here on Earth because it confirms our final destination. Are you ready to go to Heaven? There is a great event that is going to take place. I’m not sure of the day or the time but it is called the Tribulation. What is the Tribulation? It is the time after the believers in Christ will be snatched up and taken out of this world that we are living in today, which is known as the Rapture. The late Billy Graham has written “We are like people under the sentence of death, waiting for the date to be set. We sense that something is about to happen. We know that things cannot go on as they are. History has reached a standoff. We are on a collision course, Something is about to give.” See God’s people, true believers in Christ know and see the Bible unfolding right before their very eyes. They know and feel something great is fixing to take place. So being ready is so important.

The problem today is, there are very few people reading their Bible and understanding what it is saying. It was A. W. Tozer who said, “Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.” So many people today only look at bits and pieces of the Bible they want to. They have to customize their Bibles to what makes them feel good and cut out all the parts they don’t like or that might challenge them. Many people do not want to hear or think about the Tribulation. Why is that you say? Well, Dr. David Jeremiah put it this way, “There is nothing Good about the Tribulation but that it will only last seven years and then it will pass.” Yes, we see the sign of the time unfolding right before our very eyes, but we best be looking for our Savior to break through the Eastern Sky. My question to you is still, Are you ready to go? See there is an old saying that goes: “As death finds you, eternity keeps you. Whether it’s through death or the rapture are you ready?

Heaven has been prepared for believers. You say then how can I become a believer? The Bible tells us in John 14:6Jesus saith, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Here are two verses that can help you become a believer and believe Jesus Christ is the only way. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” We have to believe that True Salvation is believing there is only, One God, One Way, One Salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

The Bible says John 14:2-3 I go to prepare a place for you. 3  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” Again, “Are You Ready To Go To Heaven?
