Hi Doves, 
Jennie wrote,

"God says that once we receive Jesus, we are TO LIVE ACCORDING TO HIS WAYS.  I know a lot of Born Again Christians who are still living as though they were never saved.   So, in my opinion I don't believe EVERYONE will be Raptured."
She is correct,

The greatest enemy of the Church, in these Last Days, is deception.

For many Christians have been wrongfully taught that they just need to claim the righteousness of Christ.
And that they don't really need to bother about their day to day conduct! 

It's the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard!

"...Many false prophets [teachers] will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness [sin] will abound [in the Church] , the love of many [to practise righteousness]  will grow cold.
But he who endures [that is, who is diligent in practising righteousness, in spite of what most people in the Church are doing] to the end shall be saved [raptured] ." (Matt.24:11-13)
 The Lord said many Christian's will be deceived.
This implies many Christian's will be left behind!

Again we read,

"Not everyone who says to Me,
"Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven [at the rapture] ,
but he who does the will of My Father in heaven [ which is to practise righteousness]."
"Many will say to Me in that Day [of the rapture] ,
"Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?
"And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from Me you who practise lawlessness [sin] [ as suppose to practising righteousness]." (Matt.7:21-23)
The fact that these Christians will adamantly point to their public works as justification for being raptured, indicates that up until that moment, of being left behind, they will truly think they are ready for the rapture!
To be left behind for believing and therefore living according to a lie presented as truth will be a tragedy for so many! 
This is why it's not very wise, in these last days, to rely only on others for the truth.
We must learnt to depend on the Holy Spirit to teach us 

For when we use our own lips to speak the Word daily, the fire of God's love is kindled in our hearts as enlightenment saturates our souls.

Our minds and our bodies then receive strength to practise righteousness each day.

This is how we progress from having the anointing dwelling only on the inside of us, to having our entire person dwelling within the anointing.
We then discover the joy and freedom in spontaneously doing good to all the people the Lord places in our lives.
Now we can understand why John wrote,
"These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you.
But the anointing which you have received from Him abides [dwells] in you, and you do not need that anyone teach [enlighten] you; but as the same anointing [enlightens] you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught [enlightened] you, you will abide [dwell] in Him.
"And now, little children, abide [dwell] in Him, that when He appears [in the rapture], we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming." (1John 2:27-29)
"Whoever commits [practises] sin also commits [practises] lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness."
"And you know that He was manifested to take away [our desire to practise] sins, and in Him there is no [desire to practise] sin."
Whoever abides [dwells] in Him does not [practise] sin. Whoever [practises] sins has neither seen [that is, has not had a revelation in the Word of] Him nor known Him."
Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous." (1John 3:4-7)
Righteousness is only apportioned to us if we are practising it!
It's not being apportioned to us if we are daily practising sin!
Do remain blessed,
