The Rapture

Key Verse

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:52)

Text — 1 Corinthians 15:50-58


The Rapture is the next eschatological event the Church is waiting for. It is the catching up of the saints to meet the Lord in the sky. The Rapture will mark the climax of the Christian pilgrimage as that will usher believers to many other exciting events God has put in place for those who love Him and appreciate and accept the sacrifice of His only Begotten Son, Jesus.

Paul in his admonition to the Corinthians encouraged them about this mystery that awaits the Church. The Rapture is going to be a sudden event. Nobody knows when it will happen. It will definitely put an end to the ‘earthly challenges’ saints are facing presently. As we anticipate the Rapture, we are to remain unmoved or undistracted by the challenges we face on earth as Christian youths.

To be part of the Rapture, sinning youths should repent of their sins and accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour while saints should remain steadfast and be watchful in all things. Believers should rigorously engage in soul-winning activities to save others as they await this upcoming event.


Saints should remain steadfast


Be watchful in all things.

Prayer for today

Lord, help me to be watchful enough to make the Rapture.
