If you are one that is searching for the truth about what has happened to all the people that seemed to have just vanished, you have come to the right place. My heart goes out to you right now as I am writing this, even though this event has not yet taken place......Now, a little step into the future......Many graves have been opened and many others that were alive have gone. But where? I'm sure you are hearing many explanations by different authorities on your local news or CNN.
I'm sure the many theories concerning these disappearances widely vary. It must be a very confusing and scary time to be living through. Why believe my answer any more than all the others? #1) I am one of the vanished, but most importantly, #2) The very One that has created you, given you the very eyes you are now using, the fingers to type this search, and has led you to this page, must really love you. He obviously wants you to know the truth.
In His word, the Bible, there is a verse that states "For God is not the author of confusion..." (1 Cor. 14:33) I'm sure you are confused along with countless others. If God is not the author of confusion, the answer to this event must be clearly stated in His word, the Bible. It is. "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." (1Thes.4:16-17)
Well, that is the truth about what has happened. Why did the Lord take them? Another verse from His word will give the answer. "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." (Rev 3:10) You may have heard about a seven year tribulation period in which the Lord pours out judgments on an unbelieving world?
This is the time frame in which you are now living. However, I did not feel led by God to write this to install fear into you, or to quote to you all of the terrible things to happen in the next few years to come. With tears in my eyes and wishing I would have been a bolder witness for God of His word.....I now want to give to you the very words of eternal life that myself and the others who were taken have. Please, ask God to calm your fears as you read His words of salvation for you.
First know that He loves you. I know He does because Jesus said in the Bible "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day." (John 6:44) You have been led here to read this...or drawn here to read. That is enough that you should already feel loved by God. But there is more. "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." (John 6 37)
Here you are, you have come to Him for answers. What love He has for you! A man in the Bible once asked "what must I do to be saved?" The answer from scripture was very simple "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..." (Acts 16:30-31) I will now give you with a few more verses from scripture. Scripture is what God uses to speak to His people until we see Him face to face. I want to see your face there too.
If I could reach down and pick you up and bring you to God myself, I would. That is for God to do though....just as He did with me.....enough of my words.....now may God speak to you through His word. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23) "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.." (Romans 3:10) "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:3,5) "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1John 1:9)
More words from Jesus..."Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." (Rev. 3:20) And finally take comfort in the words of Jesus "..and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world." (Rev.28:20)
If you have believed the words of God written in His word, the Bible, you have a wonderful and glorious future just as we have that were taken. This will be a fearful time for believers to be living in....Jesus said there would be much deception and evil will be rampant...I pray that you grow quickly in the word of God and find other believers to be with you....most of all do not fear because God said "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world" And now finally, you must be wondering, what will become of me if I become a believer in the Lord Jesus?
First of all, "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) Well, He says that you will never perish...meaning you will live forever with Him and that you sins are forgiven and that you will not face the judgment of unbelievers. What about right now, during this terrible time?
Scripture says that believers that have gone through the tribulation are destined to heaven "And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." (Rev.7:13-14)
The time is short that you will endure tribulation....take comfort in the words of the apostle Paul "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." (Romans 8:18) Also, remember that we that were taken a little before you are no better than you. We came in our sin to the savior for mercy the same exact way that you and whoever else that will repent will come also.
I will see you there, in His Kingdom
