Dear Left Behind
What has happened? People are missing everywhere! Car accidents everywhere! Plane crashes, bus crashes, mysterious piles of clothing with jewelry, hearing aids, pacemakers and other mysterious object from surgeries are left scattered about. It's scary, awful, terrible to look at. The world is in such confusion. There are power outages everywhere and fires that are running unchecked throughout the world. How can this have happened? Watch the media closely. "Experts" will offer explanations such as spontaneous combustion, alien abduction or a host of other seemingly plausible scientific explanations. Do not believe it!
If you are reading this, then one of three things has happened:
1. You are reading the Rapture Ready website and thought you'd check out the strange letters under the "Left Behind" section.
2. You have been left behind during the rapture and are desperately seeking the truth of what happened and have stumbled upon this website. Hint: You will find that Truth RIGHT HERE.
3. You have broken into my house and are reading this letter that has been taped to the wall in my kitchen. If that is the case then please do the following:
Take all the worldly possessions you like from my home. My entire family loves God and we are all, at this moment with Him, having been Raptured. Among the possessions that you take from my home, please take and distribute the Bibles that are available. There are two in the living room, one belongs to my wife and one to myself. They are brown and black next to the right speaker under the window. There are also two in each of the upstairs bedrooms of my daughters. They are with me, so you are welcome to them. There's also one in the basement master bedroom. Oh, and you'll find a copy of Strong's Concordance in the Living Room, also. It will help you find things in the Bible a bit easier and explain some things. In the Living Room, you'll also find a VHS tape called "Left Behind". Please watch the tape right there in my living room and invite as many people as you can cram into my house to watch it with you.
Also, in my office downstairs, you'll find a few things. One is a book called, "Are we living in the end times?" Excellent reading for a person in your situation. There's also several hundred dollars there to assist you in purchasing food while paper money is still able to be used. You will also find a good selection of dry and canned foods to assist you. By all means, if you home was destroyed or damaged, please move right in here.
First a few items to think about:
The "Rapture": This is the terminology used to describe the removal of Christ's church from the Earth. Sounds like science fiction, but although the WORD "Rapture" does not appear in any translation of the Bible, the events are described clearly. If mass quantities of the population of the earth are missing, please understand that we are not dead, no one beamed us up and we aren't hiding. We are with God. Plain and simple. Don't take my word for it, please read it for yourself in a book that's been around for centuries. In fact, almost two millennia. The Bible.
So what next? Well, if you need further convincing, watch the "Left Behind" movie and listen all the way to the end of the tape. Don't put it off. In the next 7 years most of the world's population will die. That means the next time you find yourself with two of your buddies, look at the three of you. TWO of you will die, and one left till the end. Putting off the decision to get on God's team is probably a bad idea.
The Bible is a long book In fact it's a compilation of 66 Books / Letters. Takes a while to get through, but it does end. Let me save you the suspense. God wins.
If you'd like to get on the winning team, you must PRAY!! Ask for the free gift you've been given. "No one ever told me!", you say. Well, here's your chance. If you're reading this, you've got the chance RIGHT NOW to make it official. Pray this prayer right now!
I know that I am a sinner. Your Word (The Bible) tells me so. I understand and believe that you sent your Son, Jesus, to die on the cross so that He could take away my sins and make me a child of the ONE TRUE GOD. He was the ultimate sacrifice and took the burden of my sins on Himself. Please forgive me of my sins and cleanse me from sin. Thank you, God. In the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, AMEN!!
Guess what? If you prayed that prayer and meant it, then you are now FREE! Free to enter the Kingdom of Heaven and be with the Lord forever! If you DID pray that prayer, when you get to heaven look me up. We'll chat about it for a couple hundred years. :-) If you didn't, then I pray you will soon. Don't wait on this decision. No matter WHAT you have done, God loves you and will forgive you. No sin is too great, no atrocity too huge.
Now on to the downside.... The downside is that because you have become a Christian AFTER the Rapture, you have some dark times ahead. About 7 years from the time of the Rapture to be exact. The timeline of events is laid out in the Bible. They are also summarized quite will in the "Are we living in the end times?" book in my office.
You are about to embark upon a few years on UNPARALLELED world change. To 'end' the chaos that ensues after the Rapture there will rise upon the world stage a figure that promises to make everything better. He will be a silver tongued man that speaks soothingly and smoothly. He will force the globalization of economies, governments and "religion". Some of the Jews will hail him as a messiah. A deliverer. Don't be fooled! He will require after a few years that everyone worship him as a god. Read your Bible, pray and stay out of the mainstream. Gather fellow believers and get into hiding as soon as you can. Get away from government control.
Here's the biggie - the most important world oriented item on the list of things to avoid at all costs: The Mark. I know you have probably heard of the Beast, 666, The Mark of the Beast etc.. Well, many centuries ago when the Bible was written it was prophesized what would happen the "Last days". One of the items on the list is the "Mark". There will come a time during the time of the Tribulation (after the Rapture) when people will be forced to take a "mark" on their foreheads or on their right hands. This will ostensibly replace our currency and usher in a cashless society. They will try to sell you on a plethora of services that are available only with the Mark. Welfare, food and other government services. You will be totally unable to buy and sell publicly without this mark. The taking of this mark is a final decision. Spiritually, it is irreversible. It means that you have made the decision for Satan instead of God. It CANNOT be undone. You may face a situation where you are forced to take the mark or die. If that's what it boils down to, physical death is preferable to spiritual death. Remember, mere moments after your physical death, you will be with the Lord.
If you do make it to the end of the seven year tribulation, you'll witness something utterly fantastic - The Glorious Appearing. Christ AND HIS CHURCH will come back to rule. If you are around during that time you'll be instantly with us!
I could go on for pages and pages about what's going to happen during the last few years of the Earth as we know it, but suffice it to say that it won't be a good time had by all. Be prepared, get to a safe place, take others with you. Let others know what has REALLY happened and trust God. You will hear him say to you something like, "Enter thou into the joy of the Lord, thou good and faithful servant!". Won't that be fantastic?!
I pray you find Jesus before it's too late. Pray and seek Him and He will reveal Himself to you. Ask His forgiveness, confess your sins to Him (Not to a priest!), and live your life for Christ. If you are reading this before anyone disappears, why wait? Make the choice now and avoid the Tribulation. Christ Jesus died for you and loves you. He died so you would not be separated from God forever.
God Bless you and keep you safe.
