For the believer, the rapture of the church is one of the most exciting prophecies in the bible. Paul called it “That Blessed Hope”. Titus 2:13
What many don't realize is that the first stop for us after the rapture, will be the judgment seat of Christ where we will all give an account for our works on the earth.
You got rid of your old heart when you were born again. You get rid of your old body at the rapture of the church And Jesus gets rid of your blemished works at the judgment seat of Christ.
The scriptures speak of at least 5 types of crowns that will be given as eternal rewards for our faithfulness while here on the earth.
We should act on Jesus' challenge and invest wisely in eternity.
