Don’t Be Left Behind

The movie, Left Behind, will be coming to theatres this Fall. There are some big Hollywood stars in the movie such as, Nicholas Cage, and Chad Michael Murray. I think the star presence will draw crowds to the movie, and my prayer is that while there, the people will hear the truth.

The movie is based on the Left Behind book series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. I read the entire series years ago. I remember not being able to put the books down, I was so into the story! The thing about these books that makes them so different from other series is that the events mentioned in the books, will happen.

It is like reading a history book that just hasn’t happened yet.

Yes, it is true, that the content of the books is the interpretation of these two authors. The events are fictional in the sense that the characters do not really exist, but the events that are mentioned most definitely WILL happen. Left Behind books are based on the book of Revelation in the Bible.

Those of us that are Christ followers will one day be called home. It will happen quickly, the Bible says “in the twinkling of an eye”. (“In a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.” I Corinthians 15:52 NIV)  

After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 

It will happen quickly. One second we will be here. The next second we will be gone.

Gone from our homes, gone from the drivers seat of our cars, gone from airplanes, and grocery stores. Gone from schools, and churches, and gyms. Gone. Radio stations, movie theatres, department stores and gas stations.

Jesus will take us to be with Him, and we will leave this world behind. Just. Like. That.

Millions will be left behind. Those who scoffed at Jesus in this life. Those who said they’d deal with that “religion” stuff later. Those who heard the Truth, but hardened their hearts to it. Those who thought that they had it all together on their own.

Don’t be cavalier with your time.

Or you might be left behind……
