"Question:  How many minutes warning does NORAD give for a failed ICBM intercept?"

Hello, John and Doves,

Question:  How many minutes warning does NORAD give for a failed ICBM intercept?

Two minutes?  One minute?  Thirty seconds?  Ten seconds?

About an hour and a half ago, I was looking at my computer clock.  It read, "11:11."  I stared at the time for about 10 seconds, or so, until the time changed to 11:12.

I think we may get between 5 minutes and merely 10 seconds warning before the Rapture hits.  Maybe.  If we're lucky.  LOL!

Incidentally, a 5 minute warning in actual time equals just 5/6 of a second in prophetic time.

By comparison, the "blink of an eye" is about 1/10 of a second to 3/10 of a second in most individuals.

Now, think, "How long does it take for light to change direction upon reflection off the surface of the eye?"
This is what is termed in the Bible as the "twinkling of an eye."  [1 Corinthians 15:52]  It is between 0 seconds [regarding the change as a step function in mathematics] and the period [the duration of one cycle] of green light, say--about [1/(6x10^14 Hz)], or about 1.6667x10^(-15) seconds.

If this is considered as prophetic time [one day equals one 360 day Jewish year], then the length of time expands out to about 0.6 nanoseconds real time--not enough time to change your mind about Jesus Christ.  Even at super prophetic time--a thousand years to a day, the time expansion only stretches out to about 0.6 microseconds.

Since both space and time are irreducibly quantized, God can do things between times, as it were.  Thus, the Rapture could indeed take exactly 0 seconds.  We shall see.

"For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.  Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.  And now abide faith, hope, and love, these three, and the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 13:12-13

"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is."  1 John 3:2
