THE BLESSED HOPE OF THE CHURCH IS THE ANY-MOMENT-RAPTURE
What did those who lived in the 1st Century hear the Apostles say? Those who walked with Jesus, turned in faith and began following Him? What did the men and women of New Testament churches planted directly by Paul understand him to say when he taught them theology? They caught that he was saying Jesus is coming at any moment.
This expectancy fired the early church into a prophetic purity. Note 1 John 3:3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
The purpose of prophecy is worship.
The focus of prophecy is Jesus.
The result of prophecy is purity.
Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
