It’s another bright and sunny day. You wake-up and nudge your wife awake at 0530hrs to begin another day, just as yesterday was and tomorrow probably will be. You go into the kitchen and your coffee is freshly brewed and ready — having preset the coffeemaker timer the night before. You pour a cup and begin to sip. Your wife walks in and you pour her a cup as well and the two of you sit at the bar, flip on the small television to catch the latest news and the day’s weather. Only this particular morning things are not as they usually are. It appears that something most horrific has taken place, not just here in your city but in every city across the world.
You sip your coffee. You watch and listen. People are missing…everywhere! Not just a few here or there, but a great many are gone and no one knows to where or why! The news reporter goes from one person to the next. People are running around in disbelief and are crying and desperately looking for loved ones! “It’s the Rapture!” Yells one person above the noise of all the others.
Suddenly fear grips your heart and you look at each other. You know what the Rapture is, you heard about it in church. You and the family began going to church because of the way life is falling apart. You felt the need for something more structured in all of your lives. You set your coffee cups down and run to the kid’s rooms. Their beds are empty! Caroline is just four years old and Randy Jr. is just 25 minutes behind Caroline, yet not identical twins. You run to Melissa’s room and she is still asleep, that is until you flip on the light. She turned 14, just last week.
“Randy, where are Caroline and Junior?” Your wife screams in your ear! You look at each other and tears well up in your wife’s eyes. Fear is forever etched in her face, but there is no answer from you. You don’t know where they are. “Mom, what’s going on? MOM, what is going on?” Melissa now screams as she begins to comprehend that something very, very, strange and unusual is taking place! Every eye in the room is fixed on you, waiting for answers!
The exact same scenario is playing out in millions upon millions of homes across the globe and in just as many languages, yet the question is the same, “What is going on? All the children that have not reached the “age of knowledge” (as I like to call it), where they KNOW the difference between right and wrong, are gone, every single one of them, in every country, every nation and language. Mothers who were expecting, babies are no longer pregnant, no more life in-utero, they are gone as well. The mothers are not panic-stricken, they’re crazy wild! Everywhere in the world adults and children are missing, mothers and fathers are missing right on your street. You can hear screams of fear!
Well you’ve seen the movies with such themes, so I am not going to bore you with more details, but in your heart you know trouble is coming. It’s coming very, very, soon! For whatever reason, you also know you’ve been “sitting-on-the-fence” as it were, not too sure of what you believe─just yet. You and the little wife decided to wait, just a little more time and get the facts straight to see if all that is “coming down the pike” is as they say it will be.
Of course Alan and Sue from across the street told you both all the time that the Rapture is so very close. But then again, you and the little wife used to refer to them as the “goody-two-shoes” from across the street, remember? How strange, despite all the other people running around outside screaming and yelling and crying that their house is strangely…QUIET! Better yet, it seems quite PEACEFUL over there! NO yelling or screaming, it’s PEACFULLY SERENE! How is this possible considering the upheaval of everything, everywhere?
“What do we do now?” That seems to be the question of the day as the hours tick by and still there are no answers! Within days after the stations and the reporters are all beginning to admit UFO’s were too often present, yet where are they now? It must have been the UFO’s! Extraterrestrials from outer space came here to earth and took all those people. Why? No one knows! WHERE did they take them? No one knows and HOW did they do this and as before, with all the other questions, no one knows. No one knows. NO ONE KNOWS! Over and over again, they reiterate the same thing as if they say “IF” enough times it will become true, regardless of how 1950ish that sounds to everyone. The pain and panic go on and on.
One thing is for sure though it was NOT the Rapture!
The authorities begin to say and now, because of the upheaval, the President of the USA has declared a state of martial law all across the nation! Everyone is to remain indoors except in an emergency! Police backed up by every state’s, military reserves, go and knock on doors and must be allowed to enter to determine how many people have disappeared and their ages, and be given recent pictures (if available). Failure to comply will be regarded in the harshest of manner, up and to death for infractions. The government as well as every other entity has dealt with its share of missing people, degradation of structuring in many departments! FEAR is at an all-time-high everywhere!
States have opened the FEMA camps in almost every big city across the nation and for now, the people considered a problem are being detained there. Every moving vehicle, public or private now belongs to the government! All financial transactions are hereby forbidden until such time, as the government feels directed to protect the stability of the people of this country. Again, this is by decree of the President of the United States! Decree? Isn’t that something a king or a monarch uses?
So far everything has been rather tame in comparison to what is going to come! I can say that new born-again Christians who come to faith after the Rapture will be rounded-up and murdered on a wholesale scale. These new Christians are going to be the proverbial “thorn in the side” of everyone. We thought things were bad when we reelected Obama, but things got much worse, beyond everyone’s imaginations after his reelection.
Here is the lunacy of the situation: We ASKED and VOTED-IN all of this! Funny isn’t it? The Bible says this or that is going to happen. No one listens. Everyone goes about his or her own business. No problems until what the Bible says actually takes place! All of a sudden everyone has really big eyes and they’re sucking air in, in exasperation wondering, “How did that happen?” everyone asks. And again, no one thinks to consult the Word of God─the Bible, where the prophecies have been written for better than 3000 years! Right there, right under your collective noses the entire time, you just never picked it up and read it!
Let’s see, what was the catch phrase, “Too antiquated, too old, too out-of-style, it isn’t keeping up with modern times!” Yes, yes those were the phrases! God didn’t know what HE was saying right? He didn’t know what HE was talking about, right? God, the CREATOR forgot to consult with MAN…THE CREATED. WOW. If only we could turn back the hands of time, right?
Matthew 24.44: “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
Matthew 25.13: “Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”
Luke 12.40: “Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.”
Matthew 24.40-42: “Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”
Luke 17.34-36: “I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.”
Well, you gotta do as you see fit, right? If I had anything to say─as in advice─it would be to read the Bible for yourself and then look around yourself and see if the prophecies of the Bible are indeed coming TRUE.
Joshua 24.15-18: “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the Lord, to serve other gods.
For the Lord our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed. And the Lord drave out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve the Lord; for he is our God.”
We will serve the Lord God Almighty!
