During this season every year, a number of movies and stories come out reinforcing this one theme: BELIEVE. Everyone is searching for something to believe in. There are phrases such as "Seeing isn't believing; believing is seeing;" "Believe in yourself;" and "Sometimes, you just have to believe." Believe in Santa Claus, believe in aliens, believe that anything can happen.
Why is this such a popular theme? Well, I think that people do want something to believe in, but as much as I truly love almost every movie about Santa Claus ever made, in real life, believing in something that is not true simply for the sake of believing is empty. It is tragic. I need to KNOW that what I believe is TRUE.
So, do you believe in the Rapture? Do you believe that Jesus Christ is coming back to take his bride, the church, to be with him in heaven?
It is a heavy question. Studies are showing that up to 25% of Christians do not even believe this is going to take place, to say nothing of non-Christians.
As this year, 2020, draws to a close, lots of people are asking questions about the End Times. Is this it? Is prophecy being filled before our eyes? Or is prophecy even real?
Why is belief in the Rapture important? Let me take a moment to say that I do not take a stand on whether the Rapture will be pre-tribulation, post-tribulation, mid-tribulation, or anything else. I do not know if it will happen in my lifetime or if it is still a thousand years away. I have no insight as to whether 2020 is ushering in the End Times.
What I do know is this: Jesus Christ is coming back, and we must be ready. This is not a mere opinion to be debated. It's either true or it's not. If it is not true, then I suppose I am wasting my life by believing it. But if it is true, don't you want to be ready? You can't make it less true by not believing it or choosing to just not think about it. If it is True, then don't you want to know?
