The head Arkanblogger posted a short paragraph on the rapture awhile ago. Since there were no comments and it was so short, I wanted to furthur this discussion.
Have you ever seen on of those people standing on the side of the road holding a sign that says something like "Be Prepared, the end is near"? Or "Repent, the end is coming"? A message much like the one that Jon the Baptist gave in Matthew? Well, it occured to me that the message on the sign might just be the best advice we can find on that other than the Bible. If you disregard the "end is near" part, that is. The Rapture is becoming one of the biggest topics in the world of Christianity. I don't think I'll ever forget pulling up to Mardels and seeing a big poster advertising the latest rapture book. As I skimmed it over I stopped at the date. Guess when it was scheduled to come out? 6/6/06. I know people who pour over rapture books, love the "Left Behind" series, etc. I have one question, where does it say some people will be left behind? If it is there, please tell me. I seem to have missed it. Back to the message on the sign...you see, I don't really know how our Savior will return, when, or the circumstances. I do know that He will come like a theif in the night. Not on the date that a "rapture countdown clock"is set to. Or perhaps by chance He might. I really don't know. But as long as I am living my life in a way that is pleasing to my Lord and Savior, it really doesn't matter. He may come today, tomorrow, or long after I am gone. But I will be focusing on here and now, and living a life that is glorifying the Lord. It doesn't matter to me in the long run how He comes. Just as long as does.
