Yes, someday you can fly! Will you?
I felt I would be remiss if I won’t *share with you 1 of the most important prophecies of the Bible which shall surely be fulfilled in the near future: The RAPTURE.
First, this question: When the flesh and bones of your dead loved one are buried 6 feet deep under the earth, how can she completely be in HEAVEN now and forever?
Many believe that GOD provides temporary bodies to all people when they die. In the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ, the rich man who died has eyes to look up, has a tongue to speak up and a body to feel his torment and agony in HELL’s fire. Likewise, the beggar Lazarus, who died at the same time, was seen standing side by side with Abraham in Paradise. (Luke 16: 19-31).
While still living here on earth, Jesus Christ promised this to His Disciples, “In my Father’s house (HEAVEN) …. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14: 2-3).
Furthermore, Jesus Christ declared and foretold, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” (John 11: 25-26). Thus, someday, many people will never physically die!
With the proliferation of the images of Jesus Christ (black or white, babe, child or man, clean or bloodied), when He comes back, how do we know for sure if He’s the real Jesus Christ? For all you know, even with nail-scarred hands, he might just be an impostor to deceive many – say, a Jew-looking penitent who was crucified in Cutud, San Fernando, Pampanga.
Did you know that GOD, by His supernatural power, has installed a split-second, fail-safe mechanism (that even Satan can’t copy or replicate) so that Believers will know for sure the real Jesus Christ when He comes back? Please read on, you’ve much to gain.
This promised and prophetic event of Jesus Christ coming back to fetch BELIEVERS is known as the RAPTURE or “to snatch away”. It’s described for us in the Bible as follows:
“Listen, I tell you a mystery. We will not all sleep (die), but we will all be changed – in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.” (1 Corinthians 15: 51-53). And,
“We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him…. For the Lord himself will come down from Heaven, with a loud command, …. and the dead in Christ will rise first. 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. Therefore encourage each other with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4: 14-18).
So, someday, here’s when BELIEVERS will fly – the RAPTURE!
In sum, at the RAPTURE (an imminent, instantaneous event), the earthly bodies of the dead and living BELIEVERS will be resurrected or transformed into glorified ones. And their resurrected bodies will combine with their souls and spirits – in a twinkling of an eye. Then, they will fly and meet Jesus Christ in the air – to be with Him, forever and ever. And so, at this future moment, any BELIEVER – dead or alive – will experience victory over the world, the flesh, death, grave, Hell, and Satan.
BELIEVERS also call the RAPTURE the Blessed Hope – the glorious appearing of our great GOD and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Titus 2: 13).
Noah and his family being saved by GOD from the worldwide catastrophic flood (Genesis 6-8) and Lot being “snatched” by GOD prior to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by fire (Genesis 19) are proven historical events attested by archaeology. These are our models for the forthcoming RAPTURE. We ought to know and take lessons from these 2 key events: Be saved or Experience the wrath of GOD!
Therefore, are you RAPTURE – ready NOW? (Be sure to be so or else someday, you’ll be left behind to have the pain of regret and wrath that will last for all eternity.)
