Are we now only 19 days away from the Rapture / Sudden Destruction on January 28, 2012? While I am not 100% sure that this will be THE day, it certainly appears that there is an extremely high probability for just such an event, much higher then I have mathematically seen for any other date. As usual, the wildcard is God’s grace and mercy and whether He chooses to delay this event for a time. However, God’s Word certainly makes it appear that this SHOULD be THE day that God’s patience with “Sodom & Gomorrah” finally ends.
The message posted on January 6, 2012 on www.FiveDoves.com was titled “2015 for Dummies” and explains the entire concept of the January 28, 2012 Rapture / Sudden Destruction, along with the Day of Atonement 2015 as the day for the Return of Jesus. I recommend you review this article carefully before continuing below. For ease of reference, I have linked this article as follows:
Now, on to the title of this article, "Jesus is too good to not be true in order for the Rapture to be too good to be false!!". I am sure you will agree with me that this is a very odd title indeed. This article will also be odd for me in that I will not have even a single mathematical formula in this article. I am simply going to speak from my heart.
One of my biggest hang ups about the Rapture that is just around the corner is combatting what I have been taught over and over again by my parents. The old adage goes, "if it seems too good to be true, than it probably is". I have taken this to heart and I have a very hard time letting it go for anything, including when it comes to our precious Lord. In a way, it has sometimes hampered or limited my excitement on the Rapture to a certain extent. Quite simply, the Rapture just seems to me to be too good to possibly be true.
This is where my flawed HUMAN mental process impedes me. It is based on the fact that many of us have a hard time TRULY accepting that Jesus would do so much for us for nothing in return. And yet He did...AND indeed He HAD to. If He didn't, Hell would be each of our destinies, as it will be for so many that have rejected this fundamental truth. Praise be to God for His gift of His Son - Jesus truly is "too good to NOT be true". His goodness flows through every cell of His body and washes us clean with His pure blood.
Have you really, AND I MEAN REALLY, thought about this? God can be anything or anyone He chooses to be. Yet He specifically CHOOSES to be holy, He specifically CHOOSES to be pure AND He specifically CHOOSES to reach down to "losers" like you and me to snatch us from death. That is how GREAT the God we serve is!! Therefore, that is how great our gratefulness to Jesus and His Father should be!!
When I get this concept in my head, then and only then does the Rapture make sense to me. It is only because of the grace of Jesus, through His infinite goodness, that we are considered pure enough in God's eyes to escape His coming wrath. We need to REALLY thank Jesus for doing this for us and REALLY draw close to Him now more than ever as we approach the VERY END. And not just because of these excellent reasos, but simply because He is worthy AND He is the very best friend that we could possibly ask for!!
To borrow a line from a Christian song, "He paid a debt He did not owe; I owed a debt I could not pay". What more can anyone say about the magnificent grace of our Lord Jesus!!
Maranatha!! To God be all the glory. We will see you all in the air very soon!!
