A View of Life after the Rapture? Really?


When I read articles like the one below, my first thought is, “Where do you get this from…where in God’s Word do we read of this?”.  Because frankly, it’s a fantasy born in the minds of those who write such things.

This kind of wild speculative “imagining”, is warned of in God’s Word–its referred to as ‘vain imaginations’. It’s pointless and profits no one but the authors who grow rich publishing book after book filled with this nonsense. It certainly doesn’t help the Church to mature to be fed these types of myths and fables.

  1. Wild and speculative indeed. I was starting to have a good laugh then caught myself because it dawned on me the writer wasn’t making fun of a religious notion. Besides being wild speculative nonsense this person’s imagination wasn’t fun anymore but it is imaginative!🙂

    • Don’t you wish you could sit down with this author and look him in the eye and ask, “where did you see this in the bible?”

      The sad thing is, its not there, but these folks write this nonsense as though it’s “right there, for all to see”. They’ve heard and repeated this scenario so many times i believe they’ve actually convinced themselves its in God’s word.

      The other issue i have with many of these speculators is the underlining ‘glee’ they seem to have over the prospect of billions of people perishing. They always appear to relish the idea of destruction, misery, and death coming upon those (as they put it) “left behind”…in other words, their “enemies”.

      The other day i was reading in Amos (Chapter 5) about those desiring God’s judgment(s) and the ‘Day of the Lord’….

      “Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light” (5:18)

      Our joy is born from the anticipation of our Lord’s return! Not in the misery and destruction, no matter how fanciful we “imagine” it, of the lost.

      Matthew Henry’s commentary says,

      Woe unto those that desire the day of the Lord’s judgments, that wish for times of war and confusion; as some who long for changes, hoping to rise upon the ruins of their country! but this should be so great a desolation, that nobody could gain by it. The day of the Lord will be a dark, dismal, gloomy day to all impenitent sinners. When God makes a day dark, all the world cannot make it light. Those who are not reformed by the judgments of God, will be pursued by them; if they escape one, another stands ready to seize them. A pretence of piety is double iniquity, and so it will be found.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
