Have you really thought about The Rapture?
When our Savior’s angels are sent
with a loud trumpet call to bring us home
home from “the four winds”
from one end of the heavens to the other” (Matthew 24:31)
Angels come to bring us home!
No time to pack.
No time to say, “I’m sorry.”
No time for hugs!
No time for new salvation.
“In a flash, in the twinkling of an eye” (1 Corinthian 15:52a).
Two people in bed or in a car
Two people on a walk or in a talk
Two people in a grocery check-out
in a cup-of-joe line
Maybe a baby rocked
in comfortable arms
“one will be taken
and the other left” (Luke 17:34).
Hurry and Draw close to me,
and at the same time
Hurry to gather
gather the harvest
into the barns
so that not a one is lost!
The Kinsman Redeemer
Comes to bring His beloved home.
No time to prepare!
No time to warn!
No time to wonder!
His angels will gather
and before we realize
I was listening to a rapture preaching
of last days and hard times
when my soul heard a whisper,
“You are going to love it.”
A smile spread through my my heart.
about that moment
and the angels gathering.
you and me home
Peace and Joy
Infused my heart
No – I’m not good enough.
Yet, I am His.
There’s a lot of work to be done!
So many lost sheep to bring home.
So many lost children needing
to be reunited to their good! Good Father!
Anticipation! Hope! Eye Twinkling Ideas!
He tells me I’m going to love it!
I’m savoring that,
steeping in the joy of this hope,
Maybe a day dream fell on me!
Maybe something sparked
my imagination on fire!
Maybe, just maybe,
He’s really coming
coming sooner than we realize
you and me
we’re going to love it!
I’m believing God was whispering
about eye twinkling things!
“The Lord appeared to him from far away.
I have loved you with an everlasting love;
therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.”
~ Jeremiah 31:3
Something to anticipate and NOT something to argue about. I wish that the joy I am finding in your experience and your description of it could be the norm for conversation on end times.
Michele, I’d never even thought of it that way before. I’d only thought of it with trepidation, darkness. God’s whisper has totally changed my perspective!
What a blessing the Lord gave you and how precious of you to share this with us! Twinkling….great thing to consider for such times as these. Certainly He is closer than we think!
The believer, my friend, will certainly be caught up in joy!
I do feel it is so so close. And yet, so much work to be done. Praying for my friends and loved ones to open their eyes!
Exactly, Jerralea! So much to be done!!! So many to bring home with us!
Oh happy day! The more life I live here the more anxious I am for that day.
In a twinkly, Lauren, we will be caught up in joy! It makes me think of how a well loved child is caught up by their father!
It will be something we will enjoy. Fun to think about it.
It was like God saying, “I’ve got this. You’re going to love it. Just keep on. Don’t give up.”
God is highlighting His Son’s return, it is closer then many are prepared for Maryleigh!
Our Lord comes, Jennifer! So exciting! So much work to do!
Oh amen! What a day that will be! My heart is so longing for that eye-twinkling moment. Even so, come Lord Jesus.
So much work to do, Bettie. So many of our brothers and sisters to call home, too!
Maryleigh, I think more of us are thinking about this than we realize. I am so very grateful He us close to His side each and every day.
When I think about this season, Joanne, I also think about the harvest ready to be brought into the storehouse. Praying don’t get so focused on the world falling apart and neglect those that need saving. I pray we leave no one behind.
Love this Maryleigh, so descriptive and beautiful!
Thank you, Donna!
Maryleigh, somehow I always think about the “flying up” part of the Rapture. But, wow. What a thing to consider one millisecond we’re here, and the next, we’re in Heaven. It’s glorious to ponder what that will be like. I’m thankful to be His, but I’ve also been thinking more about those I know who aren’t . . . yet. Thanks for the reminder that we know not the day or the hour.
Jeanne, I remember how important it was to get the hay in after it was cut – before the rains came and ruined it. I feel like that now – that we need to rush to bring the harvest in before time runs out! Then, we can rest, we can celebrate. What a promise, though, to hope in!
More and more I hear myself saying, ‘come quickly, Lord Jesus.’
