The Rapture


The Rapture.

A few weeks ago Harold Camping thought he had the exact date and time mapped out. Actually, it was the second perfect date and time as this was his second try to figure out when they rapture would occur. Well, the 6:00 hour came and went that day. He is 0-2.

The Bible says in Matthew 24:36, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."  But, scripture does say that in the end times there will be wars and rumors of wars. Earthquakes and famines. And whether or not this particular man tries for the third time to recalculate a date, we are getting closer to the day that the King comes to get His bride. Just typing that gives me goosebumps. My Savior is coming back to take me, along with my brothers and sisters in Christ, home.

All of these events has got me thinking. Whether or not the rapture is happening this year, next year, or 10 years from now…what am I doing with my time? Am I filling my time with heaven – things that matter for eternity?

Until that day, life still goes on. I still have to make supper and clean the bathroom. I have to plan for the future and prepare for tomorrow. Until then who is on my heart for heaven? What am I doing to further the Kingdom?

Short blog...big thoughts!
