Beloved, see the incredible and unfathomable, extraordinary, supernatural capabilities of God your loving Father.
2 Chronicles 25:9
: And Amaziah said to the man of God, But what shall we do for the hundred talents which I have given to the army of Israel? And the man of God answered,
The LORD is able to give thee much more than this.
: If it be so
, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us
out of thine hand, O king.
: And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and
the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?
. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us
Beloved as you marvel on these two vital pillars, God’s indescribable and limitless reputation and capabilities, you too can stake your life and have absolute faith and total dependency on Him alone. When you do this, you too shall accomplished novel deeds and receive miracles beyond comprehension of all mortals.
. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
Remember, He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly beyond your limited aspirations. Plunge yourself unreservedly unto His unchanging and unfailing faithfulness. He is too faithful. He can not fail you.
. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
. Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;
Dearly beloved, who else can tell you about the unsearchable revelations of our Father God? It could have been no other person apart from Jesus Christ our Lord, who affirmed confidently that, He and His Father are one. Jesus has been with His Father , from eternity past See what He said about the capabilities and reputation of God, His Father and your own Father.
: 30. I and my
Father are one.
. The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
: But Jesus beheld them
, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
: And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
. My Father, which gave them
me, is greater than all; and no man
is able to pluck them
out of my Father’s hand.
: All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
: I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
Dearly beloved, see what angel Gabriel and John the Baptist said about the capabilities of God.
: And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our
father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
. Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
: For with God nothing shall be impossible.
The blessed Holy Spirit who Himself is one of the triune Godhead also affirmed these undeniable capabilities and reputation of God. See it.
. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us
See how other scriptures affirmed the limitless and infinite capabilities of God.
. (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God
is able to graff them in again.
. Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
2 Corinthians 9:8
. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
: Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
: Accounting that God was
able to raise him
up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
: There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?
: Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you
faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
Dearly beloved it is pertinent at this juncture to also take to heart, that just like the Father God can do the incredible deeds, so also is Jesus Christ our Lord. If you like believers in the Bible days shall believe in Him alone, then till He comes to take you in the rapture, all you shall be seeing from henceforth, is glory and not grieving in Jesus name.
. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
Friend, no doubt the end of time is here with us and rapture is dawning. However the wicket one , the devil is tirelessly doing things that is making humanity to doubt the capabilities of God and running after his deception. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.
. Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned incense unto other gods, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude, even all the people that dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying, As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the Lord, we will not hearken unto thee. But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.
So at this time the only thing that can help you not to loose your focus and absolute dependence on God is to really solely on the capabilities of God as described in the scriptures.
. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
Remember others in the Bible days have experienced the rapture. See what the infallible words says.
1. Enoch was taken alive to heaven without seeing death.
. And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
2. Jesus died and rose and ascended or raptured to heaven after resurrection
. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
-21 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be
glory for ever and ever. Amen.
This is exactly what the Bible says about the rapture. The resurrection of Jesus and the dead in Christ and the catching away of the living saints , see it.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17
. But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
So to help you continue in your preparedness for this imminent event, see what you must be doing.
1. Be strongly persuaded about the reality of the dawning rapture, as revealed by the scriptures.
nd being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
: For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
2 Timothy 1:12
: For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
: These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them
, and embraced them
, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
2. Prepare adequately like the wise virgins..
. Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
3. Determinedly separate yourself from anything and anyone that can make you miss this dawning and imminent event.
. And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
May the good Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
