Dear, those lost and confused,

If today started like any other day and then without notice millions around the world have disappeared and thereís mass chaos, you may want to come to the realization that the Rapture has occurred. Many people may consider the Rapture a foolish Christian misinterpretation of the bible, and at one point that included me. But today as you see it has occurred.

At this point you may be feeling an unbearable discomfort because of such a tragedy. But please take my advice, gather yourself and relax because there is hope. Though there will be those whoíll explain this by saying it was some scientific malfunction or something convincing of the sort. But they are all lies, and it wonít take long to figure out why. First youíll notice that all the children are gone. What explanation can explain that? Second, many of those who attended churches are gone. If you notice no other religion has suffered any losses unless they have unfortunately been killed in the chaos. Thirdly, this has already been prophesied in the bible. In Thessalonians 4:16-17 ďFor the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, 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.Ē

For all Christians this has literally happened. If you still have trouble grasping the fact Iíll share my testimony. I like many people attended church but just went because it was the norm also because my parents made me. And every time I went I never got anything from it so always acted how wanted to because church wasnít that important, it was just something to do on Sunday. Back then I didnít take God seriously because I didnít care. Then when I was entering high school I and my family moved. Some may say it was coincidence but Iím sure it was divine. I believe making that transition into high school I surely would have fallen victim to the challenges of my environment and would have been headed toward a destructive path. Fortunately we were able to relocate to another state, where the environment was better and where there were more opportunities. The moved proved to be life changing there especially after my mother introduced me the Left Behind series written by Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. If you havenít guessed itís about the Rapture. Through those books I received my salvation. I realized that I was living a lie, just because I went to church didnít make me a Christian. I had to accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and acknowledge that I am a sinner and that I need his forgiveness, also acknowledge that he died on the cross for my sins and that he rose on the third day.

Just admitting that I knew in my heart that Jesus was real and how lost I was before I got saved. From there on God has imparted wisdom and guidance upon my life. As months and years past I started to understand Gods purpose for my life. I an African-American male from Brooklyn, New York will become a secondary math teacher and obviously not for the money, but because God is love and God has demonstrated this to me. For me it was the best decision I ever made, I donít know how much I can stress that this is true and that Jesus is the way. Hopefully millions missing around the world may be a clue. And Iím sure I may have confused you with using future tense in the last paragraph. So Iíll clear that up I now am 17 years old high school senior. I feel thatís its necessary to say that to let you know that Iím just like you an ordinary person. No biblical scholar or theologian. Iím a cool down to earth guy who like you have sinned and lived blindly without knowing God. With this there are no strings attached no money required, this is truly a life and death situation. God loves you and has given you an opportunity to repent and accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior. If you choose to do so, pray this simple prayer:

God please forgive me, because of my unwillingness to subject to you I have missed the Rapture. I thank you so much for spearing my life from the chaos that has resulted from this and I praise you for the opportunity you have given me to repent. I know that Iím a sinner and ask for your forgiveness. I accept your son Jesus Christ as my lord and savior. I acknowledge that he died on the cross for my sins and rose on the third day into heaven. From this point on God, please guide and direct my life since I am now living in the period of the earths last years. Guard my mind from the deceptions and lies that will try to discredit my relationship with you Lord. Again thank you for you mercy and love, in Jesus name, Amen.

You have just received the greatest gift ever given to man. The gift of salvation, and though you have missed the Rapture you have just reserved your spot in heaven. At this point it may be a lot to take in but know that God loves you and honors your prayer. Because of that step of faith by accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior no matter what happens in these last years of earth know that youíll have the assurance that God is there with you. Peace and God bless.
