The Maranatha exclamation shows your desire. Come, My Lord! [the meaning of Maranatha] has come to be expressed by those of us who earnestly desire the Lord to come back, today—if possible. The difficult communication by faith with Jesus will be replaced by knowing as we are presently known by Him. We will have open conscious communication with Jesus at all times. What a wonderful thing!
Has it occurred to you that this desire may be required?
Psalm 130 tells us about the person where “My soul waits for the Lord, more than watchmen for the morning…” MEV Hebrews 9:28 tells us “He will appear a second time, not to bear sin but to save those who eagerly wait for Him.”
It’s all about knowing Jesus, personally. We are to pray without ceasing, day in and day out— talking with Him all the time. There is reason to believe that this level of relationship may be required. There are several passages in the Gospels where Jesus does not allow someone to enter because, “I never knew you.” I recommend that you ask Him what His opinion is about this.
The Maranatha exclamation shows your desire
If you do not have a strong desire for Him to come back today, something’s wrong. This world has become a dark, horrible place—filled with people consciously turning away and rebelling against our Lord. It is getting worse by the day—almost by the hour.
What a joy it will be when we’re instantly with the Lord and getting ready to get married.
But, amazingly, most of the church today refuses to even talk about the second coming, let alone [horrors!] the Rapture. But don’t worry, if you don’t believe in the Rapture, you don’t have to go—as far as I can tell. It’s on the same level as, you don’t need to believe in the spiritual gifts of 1 Corinthians 12, you can simply put up with all the demonic harassment. Again, I suggest you talk with Jesus about this.
