The old things have passed away!

Precious Christian:

"Never be a prisoner of your past.

It was just a lesson, not a life choice."

2 Corinthians 5:14-21

"For the love of Christ controls us, 
having concluded this, that one died for all, 
therefore all died; and He died for all, 
so that they who live might no longer 
live for themselves, but for Him who died 
and rose again on their behalf.

Therefore from now on we recognize 
no one according to the flesh; 
even though we have known Christ 
according to the flesh, yet now 
we know Him in this way no longer.

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, 
he is a new creature; 
the old things passed away; 
behold, new things have come.

Now all these things are from God, 
who reconciled us to Himself through Christ 
and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, 
that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, 
not counting their trespasses against them, 
and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, 
as though God were making an appeal through us; 
we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, 
so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."

Do you believe in a pre-tribulational rapture?

Anonymous... I love the LORD and I know Jesus died on the cross for my sins, He was raised from the dead conquering death. I live for the LORD now, every day, not concerning myself with the "when". The "when" is not my job. My job in the LORD is to live one day at a time for Him.
