 The Rapture

James was always mocking the bible and Christians in general. Several people, who were Christians, tried to tell him about the end-time rapture when Jesus would come in the air to take His bride away. James thought the whole notion was folly and a fantasy generated from the bible and in the mind of these fanatical Jesus followers. They warned him the time was upon us and to accept Jesus as His Savior before it was too late. James would have none of it. Then one morning he woke up to the biggest shock of his life.

“Josh would you go talk to someone else about your crazy, heretical Christian ideas? “ Josh had been speaking with James about the end-time rapture and trying to reason with him to become a Christian. Time on the earth as they knew it would be ending soon and all the believers would disappear to meet Jesus in the air. For 6 months straight they had been pleading with James to open his heart to Jesus and ask Him to be His Savior but James resisted them to the bitter end. James typical response was “Don’t give me that baloney about the second coming of Jesus because the earth is millions of years old and it will continue for millions of years to come. I don’t believe the bible, in God or in Jesus. My attitude is the rapture is a fantasy written by Christian heretics who had nothing better to do with their time than to write a lot of religious nonsense in the greatest fiction tale of all the- bible.”

James was so blind and his heart so covered in darkness to obvious truth that the Christians just stop talking to him and never brought the subject up to  him again. Sometime later James ran into to Josh again this time Josh said nothing about the bible or the rapture or anything along those lines. ”Josh aren’t you going to hammer me with your religious garbage like you usually do?” “James I am done talking to you about Christianity and the events leading to the second coming of Jesus. All you have to do is read the newspaper or watch the news and you will see that the time for his coming is ripe; and read the criterion Jesus told his disciples would be manifesting on the earth right before he is supposed to meet His church in the air. In fact, every Christian James ran into did not talk to him about the bible anymore. Great he thought finally I can have peace from these Christians.

The next morning the skies were dark with ominous, low hanging dense black clouds. Oh well looks like another rain storm is coming in. Little did James know a storm was coming upon the earth far beyond any he could imagine or would there be anything like it to ever occur on the earth again. Eagerly he scampered into the kitchen expecting both his parents and his two sisters to be sitting at the table eating their usual Saturday morning ham and eggs breakfast. This time with his family was the highlight of his week. To his surprise they were nowhere to be found nor were there any ham and eggs on the table. The chairs around the table had not even been moved from the night before, “MOM, DAD, CHRISTY,ALICE anybody here? He combed every inch of the house looking for them; the house was eerily empty like no one had lived in it for years. James was a very logical thinker so he tried to figure out what happened to them. He thought of every possible scenario he could but none of them made any sense. He scratched his bushy, fiery, red hair then decided it was time to get dressed and get to the bottom of their unsuspected disappearance. He lopped some icy cold water on his round freckled face.  He shot outdoors and to his dismay his neighborhood was silent.

Usually, on Saturdays the street was filled with kids playing and fathers mowing their lawns or working on their cars. Typically, the older children would be zooming up and down the street on their bikes or playing baseball or some other favorite game in the middle of the street. There was no activity to speak of.  James rubbed his eyes in disbelief he looked up and down the street. All he saw were a few other neighbors looking up and down the street in terror as he was. James felt a sick feeling rise from the pit of his stomach to the base of his neck. His body became rigid and he was full of terror. Oh no he thought were those Christians right?  He remembered the verse all of them use to reference when they were talking to him about the rapture. He ran back into the house and grabbed the family bible off the coffee table. He frantically turned to I Thessalonians 5:17 these words jumped off the page “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.” He screamed at the top of his lungs” WHY DIDN’T I LISTEN TO THEM!”

 

 

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. Thessalonians 5:17
