- 3/19/23 COUNTDOWN
- Would you make any changes in your life if you knew the Rapture of the Bride of Christ was going to happen this April 9th, 2023?
Can I actually “Foretell” that the Rapture will be April 9th, 2023? No, I cannot but I can tell you the season. You need to read my book Hope for Those Left Behind for the details.
On my Bible Guy Web Site – page Movies – starting with Abraham. We have been watching the Bible Movies in order each evening: Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses…
The Bride of Christ, who is she and who is she not.
Much has been said about the Bride of Christ. It is evident that she exists somewhere and is acting in some capacity. The place nearest to the Bridegroom is the place which is held by the Bride. The Bride is composed of the full overcomers, who are very close in their fellowship with Christ and with each other. They are also in very near relationship to the Holy Ghost, who transmits to them the precious things of the Bridegroom.
Fear not! I am telling you this in advance so you will know that God is in control, has a plan and wants to get your attention.
What you are about to read was written over 100 years ago published in 1919 and The Bible Guy was given permission to republish. What a great honor to have this available today.

The world has always listened to the message of love; but to the Bride of Christ that message is peculiarly sweet and precious. Christ, the Bridegroom, speaks to no other as He speaks to His beloved bride. His yearning is beautifully expressed in the Songs of Solomon 5:2, “I sleep, but My heart waketh; it is the voice of My beloved that knocketh, saying, Open unto me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.”
From 1919 Book The First and The Last by Ira Surface, republished by Thomas Spencer The Bible Guy. CHAPTER 9
VII. REQUISITES OF THE BRIDE
2. Much Prayer
Then much prayer is another requisite which the Bride much possesses. When Christ gave the exhortation to pray always, He did it because there is no other way of becoming ready for the rapture. Nothing will take the place of prayer. Faith will not, of itself, make us broken in spirit. Neither will faith, alone keep us yielded to God. But prayer changes things. It changes us from formal to contrite suppliants. It changes a hard, unfeeling heart to one of brokenness and meekness. No one can make any advancement in the spiritual life, unless he has the prayer life. Prayer illuminates the avenues of our hearts, so we can understand God’s word. Much prayer will characterize the life of the Bride, and help to qualify her for God’s very best.
3. Patience or Endurance
Endurance is one of the requisites John speaks of in Rev. 3:10. “Because thou didst keep My word of endurance, I will also keep thee out of the hour of trial which is about to come upon the whole habitable world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” – Rotherham. This is very plain. We need no lexicographer to help us understand that. If we measure up to the sanctity and holiness of the bride we shall be kept out of the tribulation by being transported to the skies before it breaks out.
4. Peculiar Belief
Now Jesus tells us that a peculiar belief in Him is necessary. In John 11:25, 26, He says, “He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he life: and whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.” We can readily see that it is the resurrection power in our bodies that is meant here. That is the power which will raise the dead bodies at the rapture, and at the same moment catch up the ready ones who will be living at that time. And together they will meet Jesus in the air.
