When millions of people vanish from off the face of the earth in the Biblical event known as the Rapture many people in the world will conjure up ideas as to what happened. Was it a mass Alien abduction, terrorist related conspiracy or something else? Many people who are left behind on the earth will make up different reasons for why the people seemed to vanish except for what really happened as described in the Bible.
“The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
The newest movie Left Behind (2014) portrays the chaos, sheer panic and fear that many will experience when millions of people disappear. The movie also shows the denial of Jesus that people will have (and also have now) at the coming for His Church in the moment of the Rapture. It accurately shows a world of people who ignore prophecy of the Bible and seek to explain this time in terms other than for what it actually is.
For these reasons many do not like the movie Left Behind and do I dare say, hate it because of its accurate and truthful portrayal of these events. It candidly shows typical reactions from those who do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord. People are already at enmity with God and this movie proves this enmity is real.
Whether you did or didn’t like the movie, the important thing for us all to do is to ask questions about matters that truly matter. Some such questions are, is Jesus really who He claims to be? His Jesus really God? If so, what are you going to do about it? Are you ready to face God on Judgment Day for sin (breaking His commands)? Is the event seen in this movie really going to happen and if so, what does it mean for us? Is Hell real and if so, why does it exist? Would you consider yourself to be a good person? Good enough to go to Heaven? How will you know? Why not take the ultimate test linked at www.AreYouGood.us and find out more?
“Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” 2 Peter 3:3-7
