The Rapture MIGHT happen Monday during the eclipse! Don’t sneer –it just MIGHT 🙂
It might happen in my next breath. It might happen Tuesday or in September or two Septembers from now. The point is, it could happen ANY time. BE and STAY ready!
Just my two cents for those concerned that the Rapture will occur on Monday, during the eclipse:
We need to live every day as if Christ is returning that very day. No day should be less important to us than the one we are in right now. We are to watch, It could happen today or any day, but we cannot know the very day and hour. God gave us all the prophecy we need in the Bible. Any extra-Biblical prophecy isn’t necessary. He gave us enough. The point is: BE Ready!! STAY Ready!!
We can’t know WHEN EXACTLY it will happen, but it will happen! Be ready each and every day as if it will happen this very day because it just might!
It’s awesome to watch (Jesus told us to!!) BUT don’t pronounce that any given day will be THE day it will happen. Why? If the day you expect it to occur doesn’t happen, you will become discouraged (exactly what the enemy wants) and you will give the world a very bad testimony of Christians (again -the goal of the enemy). It’s enough that some unbelievers joke that those of us who believe in Bible prophecy are “tin-hat wearing” paranoid people (and worse). Don’t give them the ammunition!
- Make sure you are ready to meet the Lord every day.
- Make sure those around know have heard the gospel (good news)
- Be loving and wise to have a good testimony to all.
We can’t know the DAY and the HOUR:
“But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.” –Mark 13:32-33
Still we will know the SEASON, otherwise Jesus would not have told us to WATCH:
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” –Matt. 24:42
We will not be in darkness referring to the Day of the Lord:
“Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,”destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.”
–1 Thes 5:1-4
