A Rapture Testimony

To any and all looking for the rapture this spring…..

A very wise man once told me to be prepared for the tribulation and surprised by the rapture…..

How arrogant for we Americans (and I am one) to think that YHWH will just whisk us out of here at the first sign of trouble.  How self-centered we are to think that we will not have to go through tribulation.  What do you think our persecuted brethren in Darfur, Kenya, Sudan, etc think of our attitude?

Over ten years ago, I was all “caught up” with Marilyn Agee and her prediction for the rapture on May 31, 1998.  As the day and moment approached, I felt dirtier and dirtier as I realized and thought “WHO AM I?  Why would He take ME for the bride?”  I realized on that very day that I had not studied His Word the way a bride should.  I was 44 years old and I had not even read the scriptures through once!

I praise YHWH for that experience; that was a life-changing moment. Since that day in 1998, I have read the scriptures over and over and over.  I have begged the Father to purify me and to cleanse me, to get me ready for HIM.  My family joined me and we laid our life in front of Him.  He took most everything from us, including many of our cherished beliefs.   We have been through much trial, persecution and suffering because of our decision. We praise HIM for the trials for we have truly matured in the faith.  He taught us that only through only through much trial and tribulation can we be purified, just as silver is purified by fire.  That was 11 years ago, and we are not even close to ready.  He keeps revealing more we need to work on! 

So as these days come and go and the rapture STILL hasn’t happened…..maybe you will ask the same questions I asked almost 11 years ago.  AM I REALLY READY?  Am I ready to give up anything  (and I mean ANYTHING) for HIM?  Am I willing to go through tribulation and trial to be purified?  Am I  willing to trust Him for EVERYTHING (and I mean EVERTHING)?

Remember the Words of Yahshua to the rich young man in Mark 10:

One thing you lack; go thy way, sell whatsoever you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me…

Blessings to you,

Mary Ames
