To Those Who Did Not Disappear

I'm a Christ follower. This does not mean that I am perfect, far from it actually, but it does mean that my life has been changed because of my belief and devotion to Jesus Christ. (That's why I love this quote by D.T. Niles, "Christianity is one beggar telling another beggar where he found bread.") He has rescued me from the punishment of my sins and given me a eternal residence in Heaven. Without Him I would have no hope.

This blog post is for those people who might be reading it after an event called the Rapture. As a Christian I believe that in the future Jesus Christ will come back for His Church (which is His followers) and in the twinkle of an eye take us to be with Him in Heaven. This letter is for anyone who was left behind and who wants to learn the truth about what really happened to all of the people who just disappeared from this planet.

1) To know where you are going. (God's Word will guide you - Psalm 119:133)

2) To have wisdom. (Knowledge of God's Word is where wisdom begins to grow in you - Psalm 19:7)

3) To find success. (When you live according to the teachings of the Bible, life works - Joshua 1:8)

He Is Good

There have been many times in my life that I have begged God to intervene in my circumstances.

I'm going to repeat those words, many times.

Mostly they were circumstances of my own making. Sometimes they were the result of the curse of this world and the evil that is the temporary ruler of our planet. But sometimes the seasons of suffering were the results of the plans that God chose to change me into the person He desires me to be. "And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." (Philippians 1:6)

If it helps, here are some truths that I have learned through a lifetime of being molded by His hands.

Redemption R' Us

I can't tell you how many times I wish God had made another way into heaven. This idea of giving up my life sometimes seems way to difficult. I mean yes, I sinned. Everybody sins. Are you telling me that we are all missing the mark? That the only way to gain access into heaven is to believe and give my life over to Jesus Christ? To trust in His grace and the sacrifice that He gave for my sin?

What if there was another way?

Imagine that God has setup an account for everyone at Redemption R' Us. You simply make an appointment when you reach the age of accountability discuss your eternal situation with your infinity adviser. 

Here is how I imagine that conversation might go.
