"Re The nearness of the rapture"

Hello, John and Doves,
Waiting for the Rapture is like the quest for the Blue Rose.[see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Thief_of_Bagdad_(1940_film)
starring Sabu, Conrad Veidt, John Justin, and June Duprez.]
The closer you get, the farther away it seems to be.
It is not logical, but it is often true.  [borrowed from "Amok Time," ST:TOS]
In HaShem,
Mike C.
