How To Be Ready
Jesus is coming soon and those who are ready shall be taken up to be with Him. This is the event when Jesus will come 'like a thief in the night' to receive His bride unto Himself. We term this event the 'Calling Away' and it is to be distinguished from the Rapture which will take place at the end of the Great Tribulation. Those who partake in the Calling Away will escape the hour of trial that will come upon the whole earth (the final 10½ years which includes the Great Tribulation).
Here we attempt to emphasize the main requirements of what is needed to be ready. For a more in depth study refer to In Search of Truth, chapters 25, 17 and 15.10.
Belong to Jesus
Jesus is coming like a thief but He is no thief and will He only take what truly belongs to Him. Thus:
Be Prepared to Meet Him
In order to be prepared you need to be washed and to be dressed in your wedding garment.
Be Eager to Go
Jesus is coming for those who are expectantly, eagerly waiting to welcome Him. The Bridegroom will be the uppermost thought and desire in the heart and mind of the bride.
By meditating on the above questions, you will know whether you are ready or
not. Remember the desire to be with the Lord Jesus is the proof that He wants
you to be with Him and that He will not pass you by.
"Watch therefore and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass and to stand before the Son of Man." - Luke 21:36
