I Thessalonians 5:16-17 (NLT) “For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the call of the Archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, all the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and remain with Him forever.”
If the Rapture happened tomorrow and 10% of the United States population simply disappeared, in an instant, that would equal around 32 million Americans that would suddenly not be here. We can’t imagine the chaos it would create. Stop…look at your children. What if they disappeared right in front of you. Chaos, weeping, tearing the house down looking for them. Many will blame God. Atheists and agnostics will say it was aliens.
I remember the heartbreak and unbelief of September 11, 2001 and the loss of a little less than 3000 lives. It’s hard to imagine the chaos the disappearing of 32 million people across America would create. But, it won’t just be 32 million in America. It will be millions of other Christians around the world.
If there ever was a generation that needs to be ready, it is ours. Because in such an hour as you think not, the Lord is coming. And then…where will you be?
