Many years ago I was praying in the Holy Spirit and when I paused the Lord spoke to me. “Ask Me who’s going in the rapture”! So I asked Him and His reply was “Christians”. I was moved to ask Him if all Christians are going. His reply was “No”! Only those who are willing to go will go. When I shared this revelation with the church some of the members were not happy. Come to find out, they were out dabbling in the world and came under conviction. I was compelled to study my Bible more intently. If God speaks something you can always find chapter and verse.
Be ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of Man will come.
If you look up the word, ready in the 1828 Webster Dictionary, one of it’s definitions is willing. A person who is willing to go will remain in a constant state of contact with their Lord. After the Lord showed this to me, I read a book by Hilton Sutton. The title of his book was Get Right or Get Left. He said if one is not right with God, he could miss the first rapture. The second rapture takes place three and half years into the tribulation period. This subject is not debatable. If you want to go be with Jesus forever, you will. If you want to meddle in the world, you are playing high stakes poker and bluffing won’t work.

When the Word of the Lord came to me, I began to be built up.
God's will is deposited in my spirit, and my soul is in agreement.
The Word decides my thoughts, I ignore how I feel about them.
I prosper before I actually prosper, the Word is working mightily in me.
I will reap what I sow, and I will have what I say.
