I stumbled on some vital information of how the rapture would be like and with you in mind; I thought it wise to share some snippets of my findings.
What you have to know at this time (whether you believe or not) is that rapture is so real just like Heaven and Hell!
It is a time where Christians who having passed through this sinful world despite all the turmoil and troubles, they overcome all odds to meet our Lord Jesus Christ in his second coming.
"Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality" (1 Corinthians 15:51-53).
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 describes how beautifully the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ would be. He says; “For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. (NIV)”
Oh! How wonderful that day would be - a day for rejoicing, a day to spend eternity with our creator! A day of resting from our suffering and afflictions.
Two people will be on a bed and one will be raptured. A driver driving a vehicle will be raptured. A baby being breast-fed will vanish. A lot of confusion here and there will happen in the world because millions if not billions will vanish.
Although many have predicted when the rapture would occur; all have proved futile. Do not be deceived for the Bible says in Matthew 24:36 that "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father”.
A word of caution to those of you who will or are on the verge of missing the rapture – it will be a day of mourning and tribulation because Matthew 7:21 stated emphatically that "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven".
What’s next after the rapture?
It must be noted that Millions of people will be raptured on that day and after that, the spirit of God will no more be on the earth so it will be a time of tribulation - a time of great trouble and great suffering and chaos.
In addition, the Antichrist will take over the world!
What you must know is that the Anti-Christ will come in a form of a very calm and innocent person promising to turn things around – do not believe him because those are all lies and reject his mark; 666.
If you accept the mark, you are doomed forever but if you endue all the suffering, there is hope for you after seven years of tribulation.
You would be rescued – that is if you don’t receive the mark of the beast (Anti-Christ).
According to Revelation, a huge number of people will be saved after the tribulation. Some scholars have also predicted that tribulation-believers would grow to outnumber the saints that were just raptured.
What should I do now?
Depending on when you are reading this article – before or after the rapture. If it’s after the rapture I’ve already told you what to do but if it’s before the rapture the time is now, REPENT and give your life to Jesus.
In Acts 16:31 it writes, “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved,” and in Romans 10:9 “That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved”.
God is ready to forgive all your sins if you confess and surrounder your life to Him. Find a Bible believing church to attend and be baptized.
See you in Heaven!
