The rapture will happen quicker than, “the twinkling of an eye.”
Consider the following verse of scripture. It explains what will immediately happen after the rapture takes place, (Rapture: Latin, rapio. Greek, harpazo. English, catch up, snatch away).
1 Corinthians 15:52 The Voice (VOICE)
52 It will all happen so fast, in a blink, a mere flutter of the eye. The last trumpet will call, and the dead will be raised from their graves with a body that does not, cannot decay. All of us will be changed!
Those who are dead at the time of the rapture, and knew Christ as their Lord and Savior prior to their death, will have their bodies raised from their graves and will be given bodies that are immortal, and that will never die again, or suffer any kind of sickness, illness or disease. Those who are alive at the time of the rapture, will have their mortal bodies changed to immortal bodies, that will never decay or die. Both, dead and living, will have their “changed” bodies raised up to heaven where they will live forever in eternity with Christ.
Consider the future that the raptured saints of God will experience, as described in the following verse.
Revelation 21:3-5 World English Bible (WEB)
3 I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, “Behold, God’s dwelling is with people, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. 4 He will wipe away from them every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away.”
5 He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” He said, “Write, for these words of God are faithful and true.”
For the people who have not been born again, and are “left behind” on earth when the rapture takes place, they will face a future that can be best described as “the worst nightmare” of their lives. Worldwide confusion, chaos, violence, death and destruction will soon become “the norm for each day; the “Amber Alert” system will be overwhelmed. With the added natural and cosmic disturbances, the news crews of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC will have “never ending days.” World governments will be, “less than Godly.” Consider the following movie, which adapts to the book, “Left Behind,” and was written by Dr. Tim LeHaye. The movie and book series are based on Bible prophecy, and should not be considered to be “science fiction.” My plea to anyone, who has not been born again, is for you to come to know Christ as your Lord and Savior. Otherwise, “you will be left behind!” It’s a choice; make the right one! Consider the following verse of scripture that describes the conditions that will take place after the rapture takes place.
Matthew 24:21 World English Bible (WEB)
21 for then there will be great oppression, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever will be.
Now, the movie. Watch it very attentively.
