Are you called to be raptured or stay and help?
Are you called to be raptured or to stay behind and help?
April, 10, 2015 – Words from Jesus to Sister Clare
(Clare) Tonight the Lord began answering a question for a viewer, which is fairly rare for Him…
‘I have a question for you still small voice… I watched a youtube video, where a supposed prophet said that God revealed to him in a dream that he would be left behind to help others come to Christ and that he would be supernaturally protected. I have felt that I would be left behind also to do God’s work. Could you ask Jesus if this ‘left behind to help’ doctrine is true or false?’
(Clare) Wow, Lord.
(Jesus) “This is something we need to talk about.”
(Clare) So I sat down with Him.
(Jesus) “Didn’t I ask you if you wanted to stay behind?”
(Clare) Yes, but I didn’t think You were serious.
(Jesus) “Why not?”
(Clare) I thought you were just testing me.
(Jesus) “What if I am, even now?”
(Clare) Ouch. I was confronting my fears about more suffering and staying behind. I was shaky inside feeling drawn to stay but apprehensive about what it would be like.
(Jesus) “Yes, ouch. I know what you’re feeling.”
(Clare) Oh Lord, this is too much for me.
(Jesus) “Let Me help you.”
(Clare) Oh, please do.
(Jesus) “I didn’t say you had to, I said you could. And you asked Me to make the choice, so I did. But that doesn’t preclude your free will.”
(Clare) So… You mean some will deliberately, willingly stay behind?
(Jesus) “I do.”
(Jesus) “Would I lie to you?”
(Clare) I really need to see this in Scripture Lord, please?
Isaiah 55:3-5 & 8-9… Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen, that you may live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, according to the faithful mercies shown to David. Behold, I have made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples. Behold, you will call a nation you do not know, and a nation which knows you not will run to you, Because of the Lord your God, even the Holy One of Israel. For He has glorified you. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.
(Clare) Oh, Jesus this one is SO hard… you know what I’m battling right now.
(Jesus) “I do.”
(Clare) Oh, Lord please help me, please help me… coward that I am and foolish, that I can be seeking after things far beyond me.
(Jesus) “Clare, I have made it clear to you what My will for you is. But I have left the door of opportunity open for you if you want to stay.”
(Clare) What are the options if I chose to stay?
(Jesus) “You would not have a glorified body, you would suffer just like everyone else. Yes, you would have protection, but only for as long as your mission lasted. You could die just like everyone else. Really, this is not what I want for you. Clare, it’s not.”
“But there are some who have been chosen to stay behind. They could receive their glorified bodies and come home but they feel called to stay. For these, it is My will for them to do what is in their heart to do and yes, for them, My will is that they stay. But they are under no obligation to do so.
“There is no hero worship in this one, My Love. It is nothing more than hard core suffering if that is what they choose. Don’t underestimate the power of love. But I will say this to you, because you have chosen My Will, that does not make you any less of a lover than those who have also chosen My will, to be left behind.
“I know how great your love is for Me, both of you, and I prefer to bring you home, where there will be much to do, as you will see. I know your motives Clare.
“And to others I say this: Seek Me and seek My will for you above all other options. Do not suppose you will automatically be a hero because you chose to stay behind, you could still lose your soul. This is not for the faint of heart or for the hero worshipers, those seeking fame and glory. There will be nothing glorious about the conditions you will have to live through.
“Yes, bringing souls to Me will be wonderful and fulfilling and worth it all. But just as I prefer you inquire of Me before taking on a fast, I prefer you inquire of Me My will for you. Don’t think for one moment you are one bit better or holier for choosing to stay behind – this will be your downfall and destruction.
“This is a very serious matter and Clare has chosen obedience rather than sacrifice. therefore I counsel you to choose My will above all else. Seek Me and obey.
“Do not think for one moment you are more favored in grace than your brother because you chose to stay or to go. All of you are simply ciphers, zeros, without My indwelling grace and to the degree that you know My will and obey Me – to that degree will you rise in holiness. Nothing more, nothing less.
“And Clare, My love, you have chosen wisely, this is my perfect will for you both. Rest in that and do not allow the enemy to impose incriminations on you or suggest to you that you are a lesser Bride because you chose to obey what seemed less difficult.
“I will use your teachings. You have had a lifetime of mistakes and failures that have proven to be very valuable for other souls who will face the same decisions. But they will triumph because they have your precedent to inspire them. They will read how I led you and provided for you and this will give them the courage to continue on in faith.
“My work for you in Heaven will only be the beginning. There you will find deep satisfaction and pleasure in what has been arranged for you. I will reward you for all of your efforts.
“It is also worthy of note to you who are parents of adult children who have not lived for Me, they need to grow up and rise to the occasion – so don’t make your decision based on caring for your children, this will have no bearing on that time in their lives. In fact, you will get in their way with this attitude.”
(Clare) Ezekiel and I were discussing this and he referenced John 21:20-22… Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; who also had leaned on His breast at the supper and said… ‘Lord, who is the one who is delivering You up’… So Peter seeing him said to Jesus… ‘Lord, and what about this man?’ Jesus said to Peter… ‘If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!’
(Clare) Then Jesus said to me…
(Jesus) “Your husband just summed it all up.”
