A Meeting in the Air

No. I’m not talking about a meeting on an airplane or in outer space. Today, let’s talk about that curious day when in one swift swoop, all believers in Jesus will be swept up to meet Him in the air. Most refer to it as the Rapture.

What can we know about this beyond-Zoom meeting? The Apostle Paul wrote this description to the church. “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’s voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are still alive 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).

In a blink, all true believers will be gone. Can you imagine the fallout? A world that, at least for a while, has zero Christian influence and little moral restraint. What a horrible plight! I pray none of you experience being left behind, especially if what follows is the Great Tribulation.

So, what should we be doing until that incredulous day? Paul made that clear as well. “Be at peace among yourselves … (W)arn those who are irresponsible, comfort the discouraged, help the weak, be patient with everyone. See to it that no one repays evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good for one another and for all. (1 Thessalonians 5:13b-15).

May you be rapture-ready! (If you are not sure, see my website, http://pointingtheway.live and see “True: God’s Plan of Salvation” under the Devotions tab.

Until we meet!
