Five Minutes After The Rapture
By Deborah Jackson
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 4:16-17
What then?� What happens after the first initial shock of a catastrophic event and just before the search and rescue begins?� The demonic thugs begin to loot, ravage, destroy, and terrorize those remaining victims.� News coverage of past events has shown us this greed of truth.�
What would make the Rapture of the church any different?� In a world where we hear so much about the quest for equality; five minutes after the Rapture will definitely bring equality for all those left behind.� Those evil ones not rummaging through unmanned houses and vehicles will be scavenging through open graves, with no second thought as to why the graves are suddenly opened and the dead gone.
Equality would begin with “every man for himself”.� No more enemies or friends, both so called friends and your enemies will be equally willing to betray you or kill you for anything that you may have – that would be of some value to them.
I often think about those persons who are in desperate preparation for the end (yet, never mention the Rapture as the only absolutely sure way of escape); who will say they are preparing so much as to be able to help those in their community.� Five minutes after the Rapture, they will not remember your name, let alone offer you canned food and water.� Evil will overtake every good intention.�
If you happen upon a church, don’t expect to find a Crucifix on any other Holy Element that once would have tugged at your soul.� Most likely those things will have been stolen and sold for something as small at bread.� Ironically, just minutes/a day earlier with a simple “Here I am, Lord” you would be sharing eternity with the Bread of Life.�
Five minutes after the Rapture, there will be no one to witness to you about the price Jesus paid for your sins.� Sinner to sinner, those left will equally have to figure it out for themselves.� This will truly be a time of working out your own salvation; and if finding it only to be killed by those destined to be eternally lost.
Five minutes before the Rapture and five minutes after the Rapture are unmistakably the difference between eternal life and death – it is just a matter of win or lose.� And, since no man knows the day or the hour; is a five minute gamble worth it?� Jesus spent approximately thirty-three years teaching His love on earth; roughly six-seven hours on an Old Rugged Cross to prove that love; three days in a tomb to give us a hope of resurrection.� He did rise from the dead and ascend into heaven; and almost two thousand years later, His offer still stands for Amazing Grace.� A love that is so simple, simply there, can be obtained by whosoever will come – all in less than five minutes.� Equally as simple as one of the most repeated and so often ignored verse in the Holy Bible…
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.� John 3:16
