Beloved, glory to God you are a very wise person. You must validate your being wise by living a constant lifestyle of examining yourself in the weighing balances of the word of God, to avoid being found wanting, when the sudden clarion call of eternality comes your way.
Beltshazar was weighed and found wanting. He died suddenly to a damned eternity. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

Daniel 5:25-28And this is the writing that was written, mene, mene, tekel, upharsin. This is the interpretation of the thing: mene; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. tekel; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. peres; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.

Globally, multitude  are thronging to hell daily. Their undoing is a lifestyle devoid of self examination. Pause a while.
Ask yourself this simple pertinent question.
As you slept last night, if the trumpet had sounded or if you have been called to come yonder, where would you have been now? Heaven or hell?
See what the scriptures says on the reason why multitude are thronging to hell daily. So that, you can avoid it.

Psalms 49:10-12For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others. Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations;  they call their lands after their own names.  Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.

Beloved, what then do you need to be doing to have a desirable eternity or be ready for the dawning rapture?

Psalms 90:12. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Haggai 1:5: Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

Haggai 1:7: ¶Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

The coming of the Lord in the rapture or the clarion call to death is always sudden. Don’t let it meet you unprepared. Live every moment of your life with eternity in view.

Luke 12:35-40. Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

Beloved, begin to weigh yourself constantly in the balance of God.  Ask  the Lord to  search you and reveal to you, your true estate.

Job 31:6: Let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may know mine integrity.

Psalms 26:2: Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

Psalms 139:23-24  Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Lamentations 3:40: Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.


Ezekiel 18:28: Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

Always remember the heart of man is very deceitful, only the eyes of God can searched it out.

Jeremiah 17:9-10.  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?  I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

Proverbs 17:3: The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.

Psalms 17:3: Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

Psalms 66:10: For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

Psalms 119:59: I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.

Beloved, there is no second batch after the rapture, neither is there second chance for an unprepared soul after death.
So examine yourself constantly by the mirror of the world to avoid had I known when eternity has dawn.

2 Corinthians 13:5. Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Dearly beloved,  if there is anything every believer and you in particular should learn from the lifestyle of our Lord, during His earthly ministry, it is His watchfulness of highest order.
He reflected His watchfulness in many of His sayings. See some of them.
1. Not doing His will.

John 6:38. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

2. Always living to please His Father.

John 8:29. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

3. Challenging the cruel Pharisees plotting always to ensnare Him.

John 8:46. Which of you convince me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

4.  Putting the devil to shame for his inability to convict Him of sin.

John 14:30. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

The blessed Holy Spirit affirmed our Lord was holy and righteous through and through without sin.

Hebrews 4:15: For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Hebrews 7:26: For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

1 Peter 2:22: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

No marvel the blessed Holy Spirit in a bid to help believers of all ages and you to attain same status after the order of our Lord, provided the way out. And this is simply constant examination. See if yourself.

2 Corinthians 13:5. Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

See how this same panacea are  affirmed severally in the scriptures.

1 Corinthians 11:28: But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of thatcup.

1 Corinthians 11:31: For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

Galatians 6:4: But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

Hebrews 12:15-16.  Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;   Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

1 John 3:20: For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

1 John 3:21: Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.

Revelation 2:5: Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Dearly beloved, for your readiness for the rapture or eternity with God, to be guaranteed, constant examination and sincere watchfulness must be your watch words. The good Lord shall help you in Jesus name.

Revelation 3:2-3. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Friend, no doubt you are persuaded about the reality of this end time and that rapture is dawning. Because of this readiness at all times should be your unfailing resolution.
However, how can you be ready without a determined lifestyle of watchfulness and constant examination. See what the scriptures says.

2 Corinthians 13:5. Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Friend, have you asked yourself why is self examination is SINE QUA NON for you?
1 Because the unrighteous shall not be part of the rapture neither inherit life eternal.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

2.  Because no  sinning and defiled believers shall be part of the rapture nor have access to life eternal.

Revelation 21:27. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Revelation 21:8. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death..

3.  Judgement shall begin in the house of God. There shall be no hiding place for graceless believers
See the attached video and live a lifestyle of constant examination and watchfulness, so that, what happened to them shall not be your portion.
It is more than prayer. It requires watchfulness and constant examination. May the good Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

1 Peter 4:17-18. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
