"What to Do Before the Rapture"

Jason Hommel's Bible Prophecy Study on the Pre Tribulation Rapture
Dear Doves,
The above link is to a fine study on the pre-tribulation Rapture and why the Rapture should be on the Feast of Trumpets, or Rosh Hashanah. I have read much of the material and find it scrupulously based on Scripture and not on any man's reasoning.
I do pray every day that this Rosh Hashanah, September 29/30, will be the appointed time for the Lord to return for His Bride. I also pray that you and I will be counted worthy to be included in that great day of removal from this earth and the evil systems and fallen spirits that rule here. Please pause for a few minutes, when you have a chance to consider what is at stake if this is the year of the Rapture.

You and I must confess our new sins and try our best to be overcomers and not fall into sin again. He will forgive as promised in 1 John 1:9, " If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
But you and I  must take the initiative and go to Him for forgiveness. You and I must not sit back and relax, expecting Him to do all the work. He expects us to do something, and asking for forgiveness is that something, or rather, the start of that something.
It is the start of something, because if we are truly sincere and mean what we say when we as for forgiveness, then that act will be followed by other actions based on our confession, as sure as day follows night. How? You and I can list the ways for our separate lives. You or I might find an opportunity to help someone we know that is in need. You or I might say some words of comfort to someone we know who is fighting to overcome a deadly disease, such as cancer or Alzheimer's. You or I might pray for someone who asks to be remembered in our prayers, as they cope with depression or addiction. You or I might remember how we once needed and asked someone to help us with their prayers, so that we could survive another painful and terrifying day.
But, you may ask me, how can I be sure that I am sincere in asking for forgiveness, after all I have fallen into sin so many times before? What can I do to convince myself, and God, that this time my words are not just words, without true meaning and belief?
The answer lies in the Bible. For there we read in Isaiah 57:15 "For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the High and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones." God the Father is living with the Holy Spirit in eternity. The Holy Spirit can and will if asked revive the heart of the contrite ones and revive the spirit of the humble.
Clearly, we need to determine if we have a spirit of humility and contrition. For it is these very characteristics that God says Himself He values greatly. So perhaps we have found the answer to the questions we had above. You and I must look deep within our spirit and see if we are in fact humble and contrite. But, you may ask, how do we go about doing that? 
We don't. For the Holy Spirit must do it for us. All we can do is to go into that special place of sacred silence within and ask the Holy Spirit to revive our spirit and restore the humility and contriteness that we temporarily lost when we fell again into sin.
All sin springs from a cursed ground watered by disobedience, rebelliousness and self-centeredness. Only the Holy Spirit can perform the miracle needed to revive our spirit, as He did to bring us to acceptance of Christ's gift of salvation purchased at the cross in the first place.

I hope, and I pray sincerely, that these words, which are based on the teachings of God recorded in the book of Isaiah in our Bible, will fall on fertile minds and take root there. If so, please give all the credit to the Holy Spirit who I am asking to help me write these words, but not me alone.
Dear heavenly Father Who looks down now with love and concern towards those who are trying to follow Jesus' teachings and rely completely on Him for salvation, open all of our minds to Your words of guidance and assurance. Help us repent of our sins and be worthy of the glory that is soon to come.
The times we live in, as You know, are very dangerous and the temptations of the saints have increased all around us, as the evil one and his minions realize their days are numbered. Protect us please, dear Father, from eve-r-present temptations and keep us walking closely next to Your dear Son Jesus.
Provide the Holy Spirit to revive our spirits when we temporarily fall again into sinful actions that we can no longer accept inside ourselves in these end time days. Soon there will be no more time to repent and apply ourselves to living close to You each day and night. We look forward with renewed hope even now as we say these words that we will grow in strength. 
We need You and ask humbly for Your help. Thanks You for all You have already done for us. We appreciate Your efforts very much, and hope we can live up to Your expectations, in part, if not completely. We love You and know that You love us very much. Amen.
