WHY WAS JESUS’ FINAL PUBLIC MESSAGE: Beware Of Being Left Behind, When God Evacuates His Church?

In fact, in all the Gospels as soon as the dust has settled from the Palm branch strewn road to Jerusalem, Christ is talking about things to come. Note what Matthew records:

1. Matthew 21:41 They said to Him, “He will destroy those wicked men miserably, and lease [his] vineyard to other vinedressers who will render to him the fruits in their seasons.” (NKJV)

2. Matthew 22:13 “Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast [him] into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ (NKJV)

3. Matthew 23:33 “Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? (NKJV)

4. Matthew 24:51 “and will cut him in two and appoint [him] his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (NKJV)

5. Matthew 25:30 ‘And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ (NKJV)
He repeats it. I the Christ am returning and will Judge sinners who do not repent and bow to me!

In Mark 11:1-10 through chapter 13: He is talking about things to come. The same is true from Luke 19:29-38 (Triumphal) to chapter 21:10-38 He teaches about a future returning and judgment!

But note John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if [it were] not [so,] I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, [there] you may be also. (NKJV)

What a precious word of comfort in this dark hour of doom and judgment. Jesus says, don’t be troubled, I will take care of you my own! This is John’s introduction to the second event in God’s plan for the future: the Rapture (the parousia or royal return Paul describes in I Thessalonians).
Out of the gloom and doom of Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 comes hope . . . let’s look at three promises God gives His church through the Rapture:

A. Though suffering and enduring this world’s wrath is tough, there is a bright future coming.
B. Christ is personally preparing a place for us.
C. He will return for us, so the Rapture is a promised homegoing!
