The Rapture - Be Sure you are sure!
The Sudden Departure Of Believers: THE RAPTURE
When Will It Happen, Where Will You Be When It Does?
"We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye" 1 Cor 15:51
Don't Be Left Behind!
THE RAPTURE WILL BE A SURPRISE
THE GREAT DISAPPEARANCE
* What in the world has happened!? Life was somewhat normal and then unexpectedly, millions of people disappeared. Even children have disappeared. Everyone has been affected in some way. Mothers, fathers, grandparents, brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters are all part of the group of people that disappeared. Everyone it seems, has lost one or more loved ones in this mysterious disappearance. So far none have been found. This is a shock heard, literally, all over the world! The TV and radio has provided 24 hours coverage since the big event. People are glued to their televisions. All of them are asking... WHY? What has happened?
WHAT has happened is the Rapture of the Church. And all of these answers can be found in God's Word, the Holy Bible.
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
1 Thessalonians 4
WHAT IS THE RAPTURE?
The rapture is an “end times” event that will occur when The Lord Jesus decends to earth to supernaturally take His people to heaven before the great tribulation. The tribulation is a seven-year period during which there will be a time of great upheaval and calamity. There will be extraordinary catastrophes all over the world during this period. Jesus said this shall be such a time of trouble that was not since the beginning of the world to this time. The Tribulation will bring devastation such as the world has never experienced. (For scriptural support, see Revelation 3:10, Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 17).
When the Rapture occurs people will literally disappear as they are called up to the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. This day does not have to take you by surprise. You can be ready to meet Christ today.
THIS SUDDEN REMOVAL OF MILLIONS FROM THE EARTH will bring about a mysterious world crisis; CONFUSION, CHAOS, AND PANIC such as this world has never known WILL ENGULF THE WHOLE EARTH!
ARE YOU SAVED? ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE COMING OF JESUS? Be sure you are sure. Say this little prayer and ask Jesus into your heart today. Don't wait! The rapture can happen at any moment.
“Dear God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner. I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins on the cross and rose the third day. I repent of my sins and ask that you come into my life and save me. I thank you Lord, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
"...if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
