"Re: Eliane B. and the Gentile Tribulation Saints"

Dear Eliane B.,
 
Your excellent post on the Gentile Tribulation Saints agrees with my position on this matter. Indeed, we are the feet of the Body, still here on the earth while Jesus and the spirits of the dead in Christ are in heaven.
 
Our spiritual walk, after being born again as believers, is the key concept that separates those who will be accounted worthy for the Rapture, and those who will be left behind for another phase of the Rapture (pre-wrath) or the Second Coming, depending on what you believe at this time.
 
It is so important that we be watching, as you say, not according to the clock, but according to our spiritual walk with Jesus, in the love that He came to proclaim. God, the Father, loves us and sent His Son to die for us. Jesus did for us what we could never do and provided the opportunity for us to have justification. We should always be thankful for these facts and try our very best to live in the Light He provided, and confess and repent of our sins when we fall.
 
I pray that everyone reading this message will look deeply inside their spirit and do what is needed to bring themselves spiritually closer to the state of readiness that we all need to be in, each day but especially when the Blessed Hope of the Rapture occurs.
 
May God bless and richly reward all of His children who strive to walk close by His side and observe His commandments of love. May He also bring those who are straying from the narrow way back to the path of obedience and thanksgiving in God's transcendent love. Praise God forever!
 
Your friend in Christ,
 
Robert
