What do you say when you’ve already said it all? It is interesting that Harold Camping and his followers have been conspicuously silent since the weekend came and went without all the true believers having come and gone. Not even an “oops” or “I’m sorry”. And so millions of dollars were spent and who knows how many lives were disrupted and possibly ruined, Christianity as a whole was mocked and not even an apology. But the biggest injustice that was done was that the entire doctrine of the return of Jesus was mocked and ridiculed. And not just by unbelievers, we were guilty as well.
The reality is this: Jesus will return, the Church will be taken to be with Him and judgement will come upon the earth. And it won’t be pretty. Sometimes I hear people say, “I can’t wait until the rapture!” To clarify 1) You are going to have to. 2) that is an entirely selfish wish. When, not if but when, Jesus returns it will close the book on the chapter called grace and will open a new chapter called judgment. And Judgement will come on those we neglected to reach.
The rapture didn’t happen last weekend but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen next weekend. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
