Many people have lived their entire life fearing the consequences of what would happen if they were “Left Behind.” The haunting storyteller’s voices and the movies on the big screen that attempts to create the return of Christ is soul-stirring and poignant. From a child, we were taught that the book of Revelations was for the seasoned Priest and Elders who had dedicated their entire life to studying the Bible and expounding on scriptures.
We were tricked into avoiding critical and powerful unfolding of scriptures as it appeared off-limits to the average person. Whether it’s the great tribulation, the destruction of the Anti-Christ, the last days, or the great day of God’s Wrath, scriptures are sacred, and written for the edification of those who seek Christ. It’s not off limits.
Not fully understanding how the Rapture and the return of Christ play out as the most remarkable phenomenon of all times is one thing, but remember this one critical factor. Don’t miss the opportunity to be ready to meet Jesus when he returns.
There’s no math involved, and science can’t possibly explain this wonder; it is far beyond their intellect. Christ is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the End, and everything in between.
So what happens if the Rapture occurred today, and will you get left behind? Many wrestle with the simplicity of salvation, yet Romans 10: 9-10 bids anyone who will to come and confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, making the declaration and believing in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you are indeed saved! Remember that this confession with your mouth provides you with the gift of “Salvation.” That gift from God through the death of his son Jesus Christ is the life-changing confidence that every believer has that their soul is safe.
So now what? Embrace the gift of salvation, find a local church, study the Holy Scriptures, and cast away the fear of hell! You are now a covenant partner with Christ, and because the Bible says that no man knows the day or the hour, never let your guard down and endeavor to get to know Christ daily.
