SO FAR AWAY
Jesus is God’s only, begotten Son,
As for sin and wickedness, He had none!
As for me, I am so, so far away,
Vile sin is with me, ev’ry single day.
So far away, from Jesus’ righteousness,
I cannot see, how the Father can bless.
But in God’s Son Jesus, I do believe,
When God looks down on me, me He receives.
So far away, from Jesus’ purity,
Dark, dirty sin is my worst enemy.
But when in God’s Son Jesus, I have faith,
When God sees me, He gives vic’try o’er death.
So far away, from Jesus’ holiness,
My stubborn sins continue, I confess.
But when in God’s Son Jesus, I do trust,
Confessing those stubborn sins, is a must.
To be like Jesus, seems so far away,
I struggle with sin, with each passing day.
I look to the day, I can be like Him,
But that day seems so far away, so dim.
No matter how good, that you think you are,
From the Lord Jesus, you are very far.
We must look ahead, to the coming day,
When all sin will be gone, far, far away!

John 14:6 JESUS saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (KJV) Jesus, sinless: (Isa.53:9; Mat.27:4,19,23-24; Jn.8:46; Lk.23:41,47; 2 Cor.5:21; Heb.4:15; 7:26-27; 1 Pet.2:22; 1 Jn.2:1; 3:5). New bodies: (1 Cor.15:22-58)
1 Cor. 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, (KJV) . . . I do not believe there shall be as many believers left at the Rapture, as some people think (Gen.7:7-23; Mat.7:13-14; 13:3-23; 20:6; 22:14; 25:1-12; Lk.12:32; 13:23.30; Rom.9:27-29, 32; 11:5-6; 12:2; Eph.2:2-3; 1 Pet.3:20-21). That is why I stress the point of TRUE believers! We must beware! We must watch, for we know not when He shall come! We shall not all sleep . . . not all Christians will be dead when Christ comes in the Rapture. But we shall all be changed . . . at the resurrection, all natural, corruptible bodies of the saints shall be turned into spiritual bodies, no longer capable of corruption.
1 Cor. 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (KJV)
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed . . . this will happen very fast! Blink your eye, it is done! With God all things are possible (Mat.19:26).
This change from corruptible to incorruptible, from earthly to heavenly, will be in a moment. The command of Christ, will first call all TRUE believers out of their graves, just as a trumpet calls people together. We also read of the last trump, in the last days (Mat.24:31). I think there shall be such a sound made at the Rapture. Whether it is a literal trumpet, or whether it is the booming Voice of the Lord Jesus (1 Thes.4:16), I cannot say, but personally, I think it shall be Jesus’ Voice that will be like a trumpet. Why do I say this? Rev.1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, (KJV) . . . John said Jesus’ Voice sounded like a trumpet. John turned to see what it was, and he saw the glorified Christ. I believe it is the Voice of the glorified Christ that is like the sound of a trumpet.
When the Lord calls to the dead souls, they shall immediately be raised out of their graves; NOT with the same bodies as they went there with, but with different bodies that shall no longer be subject to corruption. And all those TRUE believers who at that time shall be alive, shall one way or another, also be changed, and shall also be put into an incorruptible (heavenly) state. There shall be NO mistakes! It is my humble opinion that ONLY God’s TRUE children shall hear the Lord Jesus’ call at the Rapture. ALL the unsaved (the unbelieving), shall remain on Earth to go through the Great Tribulation.
a change must take place, either by dying and then being raised, or by being changed without seeing death at the Rapture; because we CANNOT enter Heaven as we are now. We must put on incorruption (2 Cor.5:4), like putting on as a garment. We must be clothed with, or furnished a new body, a heavenly body. We must stop being corruptible and mortal, and must become incorruptible and immortal. All the righteous who remain alive until Christ’s Coming at the Rapture, shall be changed at once, and endowed with incorruption and immortality, just as Enoch and Elijah at their translation were (Gen.5:18-24; 2 Ki.2:11).
Words of Wisdom
Every temptation is a chance to say “No” to sin, and “Yes” to God.
It’s foolish to say “Tomorrow” when God says “Today.”
In a heart full of love, there’s no room for hate or envy.
God’s great power deserves our great praise.
Problems are chances to find God’s answers.
