If you are a Christian can you honestly say..............

As a Christian can you honestly say that you are completely prepared for Rapture? In other words have you completely reached your full Christian maturity? Honestly I cannot claim that.Not in this point in my life.Also if you are like me are you taking steps to become more prepared? For it is written...Enter through the narrow gate.For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction,and many will enter through it.But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life,and only few will find it.
Mathew 5:45 13-14

  • I dont think anyone is ever TRULY ready. There is never a peak in spiritual maturity for when we stop growing in Christ we begin to fall away. For me I just strive to be better and better with each passing day and to walk in his footsteps knowing I am perfectly imperfect

  • No-one will reach their maturity fully when the rapture comes. From what I am seeing today and listening to the end times teachings... I will be making steps to be prepared. It is not as far away as we think.

  • no one can say that they have reach full christian maturity. we allways lear we allways grow, but i have given my life to god and am living it for him, so i have no fears or doubts about going to heaven.

  • Do not fear of not being ready. Strive to be ready,and it will be done. For it is written...
    "when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else,I'll make sure you won't be disappointed." Jeremiah 29:13
    Or....Some of these people have missed the most important thing in life-they don't know God.
    1 Timothy 6: 21 LB
    Hope this helps.

  • i am a Christian but i dont believe in the Rapture. the religion i grew up in doesn't teach it. i do believe Jesus will come back someday (prolly not in my lifetime), but i don't believe that Revelation is to be taken literally. to be honest i am not sure if what ive been told about the Rapture is true b/c its hard to trust what someones said about it when they don't believe in it :)

    As a Christian i feel that i am prepared for Christ to return, but i am far from complete maturity. but i am working on it!

  • Christian maturity is not what gets you into heaven. I think everyone should be trying to head in that direction though. Too many people sit around and "claim" to be Christian because that's what they were raised. They don't think they have to do anything to get there. I don't think doing good works gets you into heaven either, but I do think it's important to hold a relationship with Christ. When you start having a relationship with Him, you'll grow in your maturity.
