The day after tomorrow.

Supposedly, in case you hadn't heard, tomorrow marks the end of the world. *Giggles* An evangelist has claimed tomorrow marks the day of the rapture. (He also claimed this twice before.) I hadn't heard of this so called, "mark your calendar" event till yesterday.

Here's the catch though. People are actually concerned for this so called "prophecy."

I'd like to ask, "why exactly?"

And there are so many different questions I would love to have answered as to why...

  • 1.  To believe anything that this "evangelist" claims, is to step towards religious topic. If you are going to base the end of the world by "religious topic" it is best to get your facts straight. The rapture is biblical truth. Yes it will happen. It is a real event that will take place in the future. 
           BUT... (AND MAKE SURE YOU LISTEN) In reference to the "apocalypse, revelation, the coming of  Christ, or the rapture" based on biblical truths, here is where I wonder where this "Evangelist" got his facts.

"No one knows about that day or hour, 
not even the angels in heaven, 
nor the Son, but only the Father ."
                                            -Mark 13:32
{But ONLY the Father.}

  • 2.  The Rapture. He claims the Rapture is coming tomorrow. How many people (the people in panic mode) can even describe the definition.
The Rapture::
When Christian's are gathered to meet Christ, in heaven.

"...Then we who are alive and remain 
shall be caught up together with them 
in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. 
And thus we shall always be with the Lord."
                                                         - 1 Thessalonians 4:17
 So... if it was the rapture, why would you be concerned unless you know that you will not be meeting Christ in heaven. 

  • 3. I would be more than happy to go tomorrow. Sadly, with these facts, NO the end of the world is not coming tomorrow. But if it does, I would not spend my last moments in fear, but rather excitement over the thought of joining my precious baby girl in heaven for eternity.  
 My prayers and wishes for all of my readers, is that you all have the same understandings. It's not too late. After all we are never guaranteed another day. Especially not if you talk to a so called Evangelist. ;)

Amen! Thank you for posting this. The verse in Mark has been my thought all day today. NO ONE but the Father knows the day.
And I agree with you, those of us who know where we are going should have no fear about that day.
It is a day we will get to spend eternity with the Lord and with our babies and other family in Heaven, and that will be a wonderful day.
