"Concerning Ruth's Rapture dream"

Concerning Ruth's Rapture dream posted by Ola Ilori on Sept 26th.
I was just thinking about this statement....."In the dream, I remember consciously thinking that it felt like millions of bubbles all throughout my reminded me of when we used to take our kids to the fish hatchery when they were very small..."
I believe that when God created the heavens in the earth it was a complete work,
Ecclesiastes 3:11
He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
Ecclesiastes 3:10-12
Isaiah 46:10
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

So I think that God knew everyone and everything that would happen.  He knew it because creation was a complete work.  It would be kind of like having a vcr tape of a movie.  The movie is completed on the tape but you can search at any point on the tape to see what is happening in that scene.
Maybe because God already knows who would accept Yeshua and be saved our cells (DNA) have been preprogrammed to respond to the sound of the shofar when Yeshua returns to call us home.  Maybe our body begins to respond and change when the shofar is sounded.  And we are changed in an instant as we go to meet our Savior.  Maybe the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in believers' bodies causes this to happen.
I am NOT saying that each individual doesn't have to make his/her own choice.  Only that because God is omnipresent, HE knows everything.  HE has seen "the whole movie".  Smile
Ephesians 1:5
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

Ephesians 1:11
In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will

Because HE knew us in advance He has already prepared us to meet HIM as HE returns.
Just a thought that came to my mind when I read this.
