We know that before all these things, Christ will return at the Rapture and remove His Church from the earth. Our disapearance will be so sudden and so final, it will be as if we were never really here. The atheists, the secularists, the Christ-rejecters, and the elitest bourgouisie will rejoice and congratulate themselves on getting the world they think they deserve. A world without Christ. A world without the restraining influence of a Holy Spirit filled church. In our absence, in that vacuum...hell will fill the void.
The moment we are caught up and are translated from mortality into immortality, and from the temporal to the eternal, our lives here will seem like a distant memory. And it matters not if you were 9 years old, or 90, the span of our life compared to the backdrop of eternity, will be so insignificant, that we will hardly remember, or want to remember, what it was like before we came home. It will be as if we were never really here, because here is not our home. Here is not our be-all end-all. Here is not where the story ends, but the story begins.
Those who invest only in this life and in this world, is like a man who saves all his money by throwing all of it out of his car window while racing down the road towards a washed-out bridge. Who we are now, and what we do then, is only made possible by Christ's obedience unto death. His sacrifice will be of so much more importance that in 100,000,000,000,000+ years from now, we will still marvel at the grace and mercifulness of God's plan, the sacrifice of His Son, and our redemption by the shed blood of Christ.
This world is getting darker! But its gonna get a lot darker once the restrainer is taken out of the way at the rapture of the Church. The Red Sea moment is coming. Wait for it! Be patient! Trust in Gods plan! Our only Hope is our Blessed Hope!!!!
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 King James Version 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
If you are a saved… Born again believer in Jesus Christ… you are about to go on the flight of your life…. You are about to receive your Glorified Body!!! No more pain!!! No more death!! You are about to be caught up suddenly to meet Jesus Christ in the air… our little earthly brains can’t comprehend what is about to happen. No matter how hard and bad it gets in the days and weeks ahead ( Lord Willing)… we have a Blessed Hope… we have a confidence that this is not our Home…. But we are about to see what God has prepared for those that love Him!!!
