After the Rapture, Pt. 4

Now you are to do the labour of love and stick with Paul’s doctrine even though you will suffer for that godly edification.

2 Timothy 3:12
Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

But when you suffer you will reign with him.  But if you deny the doctrine and you don’t suffer with him, he will deny you. 

2 Timothy 2:12
If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:

Now then, that does not mean that you will lose your salvation like in the prophetic program.

2 Timothy 2:13
If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

You will go to heaven, but you will lose reward.  You won’t serve the Lord in his kingdom—in the heavenlies—with ruling authority.  You will be in the heavenly kingdom, but you won’t rule and reign as a joint heir with Christ.

Romans 8:17
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Suffering with him is the qualifier.  The way you suffer with him is by being faithful in the grace message and the mystery of Christ until your death or the rapture.

1 Corinthians 4:2
Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

A steward is someone who, as a commitment to his master, keeps that which is committed to him—which for us is the mystery of Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:20
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Ephesians 3:9
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

At the return of the Lord Jesus Christ you have to be found faithful in this doctrine; you have to love it and suffer for it.
To be continued…
