One evening while lying on the couch and watching the evening news. I experienced once again that feeling that had virtually paralyzed me all day long. It seemed to creep over me like the clouds creep in from the west towards the East on a hot summers afternoon and all of a sudden the thunder and lightening over take you before you know it.
That feeling was a very uncomfortable one, as if something or someone was trying to tell me something or warn me. So like all "Christians" do, I picked up my Bible and began to read. As I read I would pray a little but then go back to reading, in the process I was getting a little drowsy I shook it off and continued to read. Just as I was nodding again, for the umpteenth time, something on TV caught my eye. I had had the volume muted, so as not to disturb me while reading the Bible, I laid down the Bible and picked up the remote and un-muted the volume.
"Terror stricken parents search for missing children." Came the reporters voice, while pictures of two young people in their mid 20's frantically searched for their children. I wondered what has happened to these two children. The parents must be feeling horrible over loosing their children! Has to be more than anyone could bear, I thought.
"At precisely 1:59 CST these two children along with thousands maybe hundreds of thousands of people have completely disappeared."
I was sitting holding my tea glass after just taking a drink when I jumped to my feet in unbelief. My tea glass shattered as it hit the floor.
My first initial thoughts were "This can't be, what does this mean? The Rapture? NO. NO!! NO!!!" I yelled "This is impossible I am a Christian this can't be the rapture."
I immediately picked up the Bible and it fell open to the words
1 Cor 15:52 "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." It hit me like a ton of bricks, the rapture had taken place and I had been LEFT BEHIND. I made a mad dash to phone dialed but received the message, "all circuits are busy,".
I could not call my wife she had been at her parents house. She had all the children with her. I tried to make sense of the things that were happening, but could not. I tried to comfort myself but could not. Trying the phone every few minutes was driving me crazy. I felt as if I was going to explode from the inside. Had my wife and kids been taken too?
"NO, I screamed as loud as I could."
All of a sudden I started to remember what I had been taught all my life. Hearing my father preach from behind a pulpit of wood. I started to recall statements such as "It will be a glorious day."
"It will be a day like no other."
I started to think about these statements that were running through my head. I began to think this is a day like no other for sure, but it definitely was not glorious at least not from where I was standing.
The days drug by like years, I never did find anything out about my family. I finally accepted the idea that they were gone also.
The prophecy in the Bible started to unfold like a early addition newspaper.
Everything fell into place there was a man that arose from the Middle East that seemed to have an answer for every problem that came up. He quickly rose to a high status in the world's eyes. I knew then that this was the "anti-Christ" that was spoken about in the book of Revelation.
Chaos prevailed in every country of the world. Brother against brother husbands against wives. Looting, murders, rape, all forms of evil. It was as if someone or something had pulled the very presence of good from the world.
Nothing was the same as before the rapture. Everything had changed.
The antichrist had put in place his system to control the world's buying and selling.
"Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." I knew better than to take this mark. I read in the word of God where it said that
"Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb"
There were times that it seemed I could not go on any longer. I thought this is unbearable. If I could only do it over I would change the things I did wrong. If only, If only. Just as I was sitting down to eat the meal, which had been rationed to me before the mark of the beast was set in order, I heard the phone ring. "Phone, I thought? Who would be calling me? Everyone I
knew that would be calling me had been taken in the rapture.
I tried to get up but could not move, what had frozen me in my chair? Why could I not get the phone. It just kept ringing and ringing...
Startled out of a deep sleep by the sound of a phone ringing, I screamed. Jumped to my feet looked around unbeknownst to where I was at the present time. I answered the phone.
"Honey, are you coming to mom and dad's? They want us all to go to church with them." Came my wife's voice. "Wha..." I answered. "Yes, I yelled, Yes, I will go with you." "But..." "No, butts this time honey." She said. "No, buts honey I am on the way." "I love you, Honey."
I hung up the phone looked around still not sure what was going on but then it hit me, I had had a dream. It was all a dream I yelled, at the top of my lungs.
Needless to say I changed my ways. I went to church more and I did drop being religious but I did not drop being a Christian. After my dream that I had, I thought I wonder how many Christians are out there are living the same as I have been living thinking they are safe when in reality they are far from it. I realize there will be those who read this letter before and after the Rapture. So I fashion it to both parties.
To those who read before the Rapture: Please don't rely on the same "old religion" Move into God Get to know Him. He would love to visit with you, He sits and awaits a personal relationship with you and you and you and you. Don't be one of those left behind. Don't be a statistic. GOD LOVES YOU...
To those who would read this after the Rapture:
I feel sorry for you, you have been dealt a hand that is the worst one you could ever imagine. There will be things that happen that will be hard to imagine but you have to realize this the Holiness of God has been withdrawn and you are left to a world that is overrun by evil. There will surely be a person who will arise to power, at first he will appear to have it all. DO NOT TRUST THIS MAN HE IS THE ANTICHRIST prophesied about in the Bible.
Unfortunately you don't have many options right now, but you do have this one. Before it is to late you need to get you a Bible and get as many as you possibly can. Store them up for yourself or others that might need them. Get ready for the worst possible 7 years of your life. I am not trying to scare you I am simply telling you the facts.
1. You are left behind the rapture has happened
2. There will be an Antichrist that will rise from most likely the Middle East
3. Trouble will come it will only get worse and worse
4. There will be others like yourself that believe like you do find them if you can
5. There will be a mark known as the mark of the beast that will be offered at first then forced upon people or death DO NOT TAKE THIS MARK WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T TAKE IT.
I so sorry that I can not do more for you but please above all if you read this before it is to late get a bible and read. Remember you have chosen not to accept the free gift that God gave don't blame Him don't curse Him. The question "Do I have another chance?" is probably going over in your mind even now. The answer is yes, but only if you DO NOT TAKE THE MARK. I cannot stress this enough. If you're starving you are better off dead than living with the mark. Remember God Loves you MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOU!
Yours in Christ,
