"Come Fly With Me"


There's a new series starting September 25th called Pan Am, but the song used to promote the series is "Come Fly With Me" by Michael Buble. The song has always reminded me of the rapture due to the following lyrics:
 
Once I get you up there, where the air is rarefied, we'll just glide, starry-eyed. Once I get you up there, I'll be holding you so near, you may hear the angels cheer because we're together. Weatherwise it's such a lovely day. Just the word and we'll beat those birds down to Acapulco Bay. It's perfect for a flying honeymoon they say, come fly with me, let's fly let's fly away.
 
Given that Rosh Hashanah is the 2 day feast of which "no man knows the day or hour" and represents a marriage, the church is the Bride of Christ, and Rosh Hashanah is a few days following the premier episode, it's definitely interesting timing.
 
On a separate note, a few days ago I went to a Chinese restaurant for lunch and I've been really down and tired lately not feeling like I can take much more of this world--just exhausted. When the fortune cookie came at the end, was thinking it would be awesome if I took it out and it said, "The rapture is in 10 days" or whatever. So I open it up and it didn't say that, but it did say, "Happier days are definitely ahead for you. Struggle has ended."
 
The word struggle reminded me of the following from scripture:
 
"Then the man said, 'Your name will no longer be Jacob, but
Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and
have overcome."
 
Please come soon Lord!
