Tandra Page 1524, The Coming Rapture

Visit : 

I’m sitting on my back porch looking out over the yard as the rising sun brightens the Eastern sky.

I only heard about this recently when a radio host I listen to quite often did a show focusing on the “coming rapture” of September 23rd. That’s tomorrow as I type this. The come away insofar as the radio host was concerned is that the whole thing came about as a false reading of scripture and was never going to happen as was being advertised by the September 23rd advocates.

I have said previously and often that I am Christian and believe in the Bible, but I am no scholar. I don’t bury my nose inside the Holy Book and study it 24/7 looking for hard truths and hidden meaning. I leave that sort of thing to my pastor to whom I listen on Sundays and in mid-week Bible Study. Perchance, had my first exposure to the September 23rd phenomenon been from a positive perspective, I might have had a different take. Then again, mebbe not. After all, the Bible says no man knows the hour for the end of time.

In any case, having been subjected to a negative take on the Rapture Schedule, I do not take it seriously, but here comes the rub.

So I was in church Wednesday night past and the subject came up and I made comment that I did not much believe the prediction for September 23rd, but I certainly hope it turns out to be accurate. I am ready for the Lord to return and I hope it happens to be tomorrow. If I expected agreement from confessed Christians, Wow, did I turn out to be wrong! Of the dozen or so Christians in the room, not one was ready to meet his God.

Perchance there is good reason why some Christians would wish a delay in Jesus’ return. Perchance there are projects on the calendar these Christians wish to finish before The Christ returns. I also have projects in progress. I have just this year started on a projected ten year Tandra story arc that I hope to finish.

But, when Jesus returns, I will have no more interest in the projects in progress here on Earth. I will have more pressing concerns.

I have no hard evidence when Jesus shall return. He may indeed come tomorrow, or the next day, or ten or a thousand years from now. No one knows.

But, if he does indeed come tomorrow, I am ready as should be all Christians.
