I know you think I am nuts for believing in Bible end-times prophecy, but please hear me out. I think that there is a very good chance that a week from now this event will have happened.
For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 ESV
During this event my body will be transformed.
Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
1 Corinthians 15:51-55 ESV
I have not been through this transformation process before, so I don’t know what’s going to happen to the car keys in my pocket. Will they survive intact, in the pocket of my suddenly-empty pants on the floor? Will they (and my pants) be vaporized by the energy of the transformation from moral to immortality? I don’t know. If this happens on September 30, 2017, as I think it might very well might, I am not going to be needing my car anymore. You might as well have it instead of some stranger. You have scoffed at the notion of the rapture and will still be here on earth. But since I don’t know if the keys in my pocket will be useable after the rapture, to be on the safe side please stop by my place and get my spare set. That way you will have keys that will work.
Why September 30, 2017? Jesus does important things on Jewish feasts. See The Seven Jewish Feasts. The once-in-history alignment of Revelation 12 has happened, which means other prophetic events will happen soon.
And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.
Revelation 12:1-2 ESV
By my current understanding the “tenth day of the seventh month” is September 30, just a handful of days from now.
“You shall count seven weeks of years, seven times seven years, so that the time of the seven weeks of years shall give you forty-nine years. Then you shall sound the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land.”
Leviticus 25:8-9 ESV
So drop by and get my spare keys. If you like, I will be glad to give you one of my Bibles, and, if you wish, point out things to come during the tribulation — ending with the battle of Armageddon. Salvation will be possible but difficult. See Left Behind? You Can Be Saved!
I recommend you get right with God now. Not only is it easier, and you miss the tribulation, no one is promised tomorrow.
Are you following God's plan for your life?
Your plan sucks.
It really, really sucks.
Most people are WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!
Jesus is coming.
Are you ready to meet Him?
Give your life to Jesus Christ.
Time is running out.
