The Rapture is the Blessed Hope amongst
Christians. After it occurs those who are left behind will be in a state
of confusion and sorrow, they will be searching for answers. There are
those who may call it the Vanishings, the disappearances or one of many
other names, but you will know that millions of people vanished in the
twinkling of an eye. There will be those that try to concoct many
different stories of what occurred. It may be alien abductions, some
freak nuclear accident or they may even say it was God removing
"evil" from the world. Be mindful, it was not one of those
things, it was what Christians call the Rapture.
The Lord himself has returned for his Church.
If you are reading this prior to the
Rapture take care to "answer the door". Jesus Christ is
knocking on the door to your heart, the Word of God is whispering to
you, calling you to salvation. You know you feel him tugging on you
right now - And if you are one of my friends (Like you Dave!) You need

God gave us the ability to choose. It's
up to you whether you choose to accept His grace and the eternal life
paid for by Jesus Christ or to reject Him and receive eternal damnation.
Search your heart and choose. Have you asked the Lord to come into your
If by chance you are reading this after
the Rapture it's not too late. Be aware, all is not lost, there is still
time for you. Do not give up, waste not a moment longer, ask the Lord
for his forgiveness and ask Him to come into your life. During the time
following the Rapture, life on planet Earth will radically change. Only
those who discover and accept the truth found only in the Word of God
will be saved and gain eternal life. As for those who continue to reject
the Lord, well, their fate is sealed. The Tribulation discusses what is
to occur at some point following the Rapture.
It doesn't matter whether it is before
or after the Rapture - All you have to do is offer this simple prayer to
Dear Heavenly Father, I know I am a
sinner and I have sinned against you. I know I need forgiveness. I
thank you for sending your Son Jesus Christ to die for me, to die for
my sins. I believe he died and rose again. Lord Jesus, I ask you to
come into my heart - to wash away my sin. To be my Lord and Savior. I
give myself to you and ask you to use me for your glory and honor. In
Jesus' name I pray. Amen!!!
