Galatians 6:7-9 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Beloved,  how would you want God to relate with  you now and in the distant future in eternity? That decision is exclusively yours. Your relationship and desired blessings associated with it from God are predicated by your personal inputs .
God has an unchanging principles with which He relates with humanity from eternality past to eternal future.  See His principles.

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

See several affirmation of this singular principle from the scriptures.

Hosea 10:12   Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it istime to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

Dearly beloved, the lifestyle  of our Lord during His earthly ministry is worthy of emulation for believers of all ages and you in particular.. All that our Lord received from His Father were not accidental but were earned. He sowed unashamed obedience to His Father, He reaped unequal recompense. See them yourself and be constrained  to follow suit.
1. Exalted name.

Philippians 2:5-11 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

2. Uncommon anointing.

Hebrews 1:8-9. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

3; Highest majesty.

Hebrews 12:2. Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 1:3. Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

While He was here, He taught His disciples then and His disciples of all ages, including you, the same principle. See what He taught on sowing and reaping, to earn desired earthly and eternal blessings from God.

Luke 18:29-30. And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake, Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.

John 6:27: Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

Dearly beloved  it was this same principle that the blessed Holy Spirit further entrenched for believers of all ages and you in particular, see it.

Galatians 6:7-9 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

See how other scriptures affirmed same principle.

Romans 2:6-10. Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

Romans 6:22: But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

1 Timothy 1:16: Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

Titus 3:7: That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

2 Peter 2:12: But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

2 Peter 2:19: While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

Revelation 22:11-12. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
So take advantage of this godly rewardable principle for your earthly and eternal wellbeing from now on. It is well with you in Jesus name.
Friend, if you sincerely will validate your earnest desire to be part of the dawning rapture, then plunge yourself unreservedly to the principle of sowing and reaping, as seen below.

Galatians 6:7-9 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Our Lord Jesus Christ was reputed for doing what He taught. See it.

Acts 1:1. The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

But then even our Father in heaven was exemplary, as He distinguished Himself benefitting immensely from the principle of sowing and reaping. From eternity past, He had only one beloved, begotten Son in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ.
But then, He had passion for innumerable beloved obedient sons in eternity future. So He sowed our Lord on the cross of Calvary to reap sons. Praise God, you are included. Hallelujah.

Hebrews 2:9-10. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

So, to help you too, to partake in the imminent rapture, see what you must be sowing, till our Lord comes.

Romans 6:13: Neither yield ye your members asinstruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

Romans 8:13: For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

Romans 13:14: But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

1 Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

4. Be peaceable like the prince of peace.

James 3:18: And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

God’s grace shall be sufficient for you in Jesus name.
