Our mandate is to expedite Christ’s second coming by stirring believers to be aware of, and prepare to be eligible and ready for, the rapture of the church of Jesus Christ, which is imminent.
Our mandate is to use the pulpit, print, electronic and other media:
- To stir believers to be conscious of, and prepare for, the second coming of Christ.
- To arouse the attention of Christians to the imminence of the rapture, the next event in God’s calendar.
- To teach sound Biblical end time doctrine in order to dispel deceptions of these last-days and correct misconceptions about marital relationships and the plan of God for the end time.
This we do by organizing seminars and workshops on issues relating to, and how to prepare for, the rapture of the Church. We also publish books in print and electronic formats. In addition to blogs and newsletters, we do online counselling through our websites.
More importantly, we have the mandate to encourage rapture-ready believers to come together in the similitude of the Issachar Company to foster an end-time Eschatological Community. The RaptureWatchers Fellowship is the forum for believers to comfort and encourage one another to be watchful, ready and fruitfully occupy their ground as they daily expect the return of Jesus Christ.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We are driven by end time scenario commandments given by the Lord Jesus Christ. In His Olivet discourse Jesus prescribed FOUR things that should guide those who desire to reign with Him – Mt 42:42-47:
“Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.”
“Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season?
“Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods.”
We believe in the Mandate of Jesus.
We believe that the personal visible appearing of Jesus Christ on earth will be preceded by the evacuation of the true Church of Jesus Christ to heaven seven years earlier.
We believe that although no one knows the exact day or hour of church rapture those who have the mind of Christ do know the times and the seasons.
We believe that to be perfect in Christ as a living saint in this end-time period one must be in constant expectation of Jesus’ return.
We believe that all who partake of the first resurrection shall reign with Christ during the dispensation of the kingdom in varying roles of duty and responsibility. “Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years” (Rev 20:6 NKJV).
We believe that living saints should strive to qualify not only to be raptured but to reign with Christ in the millennium as His wife, a higher and privileged class to be selected and rewarded by Jesus from raptured saints at the Judgment Seat of Christ. “Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready” (Rev 19:7 NKJV).
Therefore, we are persuaded that our mandate is to stir God’s people to be conscious of and prepare for the second coming of Christ by encouraging one another to be watchful, ready, faithful and fruitfully occupy their duty post as they look forward to the comfort of the rapture of the Church.

We run weekly apostolic fellowship at various cells.

We also publish books in print and electronic formats. In addition to blogs and newsletters, we do online counseling through our websites.
