Beloved, as far back as the time of the old testament, some saints of old  have been used of God to do great exploits because they had God the Holy Spirit dwelling inside of them. Saints like Joseph, Moses, Joshua, David , Daniel etc.
These saints were few because , Jesus our Lord was not glorified yet.

Jn 7:37 — 39  In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Now that He had been glorified, multitude of believers since the day of Pentecost have being  received this same third person in the godhead and have being doing  exploits for God

Act 2:32 — Act 2:33  This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

I am sure you also have received this great person in your life. If not reach out to God now. Promises abound that you too must be privileged to have this personality dwelling in you.

Act 2:38 — 39  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Beloved,  the saints of old in the old testament did great exploits that many others could not do, because the power of God was resident in their lives.
In the same token believers of all ages and you are included too, since after the resurrection and ascescion of Christ could do extraordinary things , most especially checkmating the devil and his cohorts.
This is because Jesus Christ our Lord now is resident permanently in their. lives . He is in you too. See what the scriptures says.

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world

Beloved , because Jesus in you is greater than the prince of this world, you should fare better in everything more than the unbelievers. Just like these saints of old towered  higher in their days than their contemporaries..

Dan 1:19 — 20  And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king. And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.

See testimonies of scriptures concerning these saints of old and you too should rise to do greater, because the risen Lord is resident I you.
Joseph

Gen 41:39 — G40  And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

Moses

Deu 34:10 — 12  And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, In all the signs and the wonders, which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land, And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.

Daniel

Daniel 6:3   Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.

Daniel 4:18  This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.

Beloved, please take advantage of the greater one in you and begin to bring glory to God, henceforth till Christ comes.

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world

Dearly beloved, when our Lord was here, during His earthly ministry, He informed His followers then and by extension, His followers of all ages and you are included, of their unusual privilege.
This was because He promised not only to be with His followers, but that , He will dwell in them. See this severally in the scriptures.

John 14:20  At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

John 14:23  Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Jn 15:2 — Jn 15:5  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

John 17:23  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

John 17:26  And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Dearly beloved, it was this same promise Jesus gave that the blessed Holy Spirit reaffirmed through apostle John. See it yourself. The blessed Holy Spirit affirmed that Jesus our Lord shall be resident in believers of all ages. Praise God , He is doing that in you now .

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world

This same promised was also affirmed in other scriptures see them.

Rom 8:10 — R11  And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

1 Corinthians 3:16  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

Ephesians 3:17  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

Colossians 1:27  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

1 John 4:13  Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

Dearly beloved see how you can sustain this abiding presence of the Lord, till He comes.

1 John 3:24  And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us..

Luk 24:28 — 29  And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further. But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.

Friend, it is true that a lot of believers globally are aware that the rapture is dawning.
However, many fall into the categories of foolish virgins as Jesus said in His parable. I am persuaded you are not part of these  foolish virgins.
So to validate that you are a wise virgin, commit yourself to doing the following till Christ comes. Ensure Christ continue to dwell in you as promised by the Blessed Holy Spirit.

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world

Friend, these are things you do to be prepared for this imminent event as you ensure Christ is dwelling in you.
1. Christ dwelling in your heart.

Colossians 1:27  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Revelation 3:20  Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

2. Be and remain sheep to Christ.

Jn 10:27 — 29  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

3.Crucified lifestyle.

Galatians 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

4. Separated lifestyle.

Corinthians 6:16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

5. Sustain a cordial and unbroken fellowship with the Blessed Holy Spirit.

John 14:17  Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
