Beloved, please always remember this most important counsel in the Bible. See it.

Isaiah 2:22. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

This is because anyone and everyone, who chose not to cease from man shall come under perpetual curse of God and shall never have access to His blessings.

Jeremiah 17:5-6 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.

However, anyone and everyone who will always look heavenward and rest His trust in God and God alone shall enjoy  His ceaseless manifold blessings.

Psalms 62:5. My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

Psalms 34:5. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

Isaiah 45:22. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

The three Hebrews escaped the furnace of fire, by their unwavering believe  in God.

Daniel 3:27-28. And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.

Daniel went into the den of lions and came out unhurt, because He believed God.

Daniel 6:22-23.  My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt. Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.

Beloved, this breakthrough that your heart most lounged for is attainable without stress, if you will look heavenward and trust God, wholeheartedly.

Psalms 62:5. My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

Psalms 121:1-2 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,from whence cometh my help.My help cometh from the Lord,which made heaven and earth.

This all important message of accessing God’s ceaseless blessings without stress, was the message prophet Habakkuk was sent to His people and the saints of all ages and you in particular. See it.

Habakkuk 2:4. Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Beloved, you must be determined to live by faith, because that is the only way to please God and be blessed through Him.

Hebrews 11:6. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

See how the scriptures affirm, faith and trust in God of heaven alone.

Jeremiah 17:7-8. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

1 Chronicles 5:20: And they were helped against them, and the Hagarites were delivered into their hand, and all that were with them: for they cried to God in the battle, and he was intreated of them; because they put their trust in him.

2 Chronicles 20:20: ¶And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

Psalms 37:40: And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

Psalms 56:3. What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

Psalms 62:8. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Psalms 118:8 -9. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.

Psalms 146:3-6. Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:

Proverbs 18:10: The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

Isaiah 26:3: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Romans 1:17: For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Galatians 3:11: But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

Hebrews 10:38: Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Beloved, the time has now finally come for  you too, to cease from men and look up to God alone for all things. Those who trusted God alone in the time past were not disappointed. You also shall not be disappointed in Jesus name.
Dearly beloved, our Lord had been with God from eternity past. He had unequal knowledge of God the Father, than anyone else. He knew some things  about His Father, that would be most helpful to believers of all ages, especially you. Some of the things He knew  about the Father are:
1. God can do far, far , beyond your widest imaginations.

Ephesians 3:20. 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,

2. Things that are impossible with men are cheaply doable to God.

Matthew 19:26. But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

3. God is able to do all things and everything.

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:

Daniel 3:17. 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.

Because  of all these, He passionately taught believers of all ages and that includes you, to have unwavering faith in God and God alone.

Mark 11:22-24. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

See how this same important message was severally expressed differently in the scriptures.

Mark 9:23: Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth

Luke 1:45. And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

John 11:39-40. Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

Romans 4:17-21. (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.

Hebrews 10:35-39. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Hebrews 11:11. Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

Hebrews 11:32-34. And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

Dearly beloved, what else do you need to know? Believe what Jesus your Lord taught about faith in God and continue to partake in His ceaseless blessings, which are your heritage through redemption.
JESUS ENCOURAGED BELIEVERS OF ALL AGES AND YOU IN PARTICULAR TO HAVE UNWAVERING FAITH IN GOD AND GOD ALONE. PLEASE BELIEVE HIM. 
Friend, always remember this. It will take absolute faith in God and His infallible words to partake in the dawning rapture. The people in the time past that missed the best of God and were destroyed experienced these misfortune and disaster, because they disbelieved God. But those who believed Him, pleased  Him and were blessed here and hereafter. I am persuaded of you, that, you believe Him and you shall be blessed and also partake in this forthcoming glorious event in Jesus name.

Hebrews 11:5-6. 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. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

The Bible revealed pungently the undoing of the Worldling and nominal churchgoers from time immemorial. They were characterised with shameful unbelief. See them.
1. They did not benefit from the ministry of Jesus during His earthly ministry, because of their unbelief:

Matthew 13:53-58. And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence. And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

2. Their unbelief hindered them from getting to the promised land:

Hebrews 3:16-19. For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

3. They refused to believe God’s words:

Hebrews 4:1-2. Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For durunto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

But then, the people in the time past that were blessed by God and faithful believers like you globally that shall be part of the rapture have one unique character. See it.
1. Abraham believed God and received trans-generational blessings.

Genesis 15:5-6. And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

2. Noah escaped  the flood that destroyed the first world, because he believed God for rain, when it had never rained on the earth before . 

Hebrews 11:7. By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

3. You must believe God  according to  His words, that rapture shall soon take place:. Because of this, keep on preparing tirelessly like the wise virgins. It shall not elude you in Jesus name. 

1 Thessalonians 4:15-18. 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

John 14:1-3. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 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. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
