Let me pick just a couple of professions, to make a point.
informal interviews with Navy Pilots and with Law Enforcement show me that at least a third of both professions claim to be Evangelical Christians.
A disproportionate number of both are actually Fundamentalist, compared to statistics in society.
Worried yet? If you’re not a Christian, you should be.
Because that means that probably one sixth (not all of them are on duty at the same time) of all Police cars, Sheriff’s vehicles, and Navy jets are going to be out of control a second after the Rapture.
There’s going to be some bad traffic on those days. If there are 200 million automobiles on the road in the US, and we postulate that 10% of Americans are Christians (that’s way above the numbers I’ve calculated, and FAR below the statistics that many believe)… that means there’s going to be 20 million auto accidents.
1,500 jets in the air… 150 airplane crashes.
Traffic Helicopter pilots… probably 150 of those.
We apparently don’t have to worry about Christian firemen… I’m guessing they’re all being systematically fired for their faith. But those religiously-motivated firings have “nothing to do with religious motivation”.
So we won’t have firetrucks crashing on their way to put out fires and get cats out of trees.
I’ve only dealt with a few of the details here. One of the things I’ve mentioned is that 20 years ago, Christians used to pass out tracts saying “Millions missing after the Rapture!”
Personally, I’ve come to realize that thanks to ineffective methods of presenting the gospel (4 spiritual laws, easy believism, Hyles-ist 1,2,3 repeat after me…) that literally, one in ten people that think they are Christian are truly Christian.
We may see entire churches disappear except for a few. We may see some churches where half the congregation disappears. We may see some churches where out of 200 people, twenty are gone.
I guarantee there’ll be some churches where NOBODY disappears.
It may be that the biggest revival in history will not be before the Rapture, but one minute AFTER the Rapture.
Make sure you are saved. Make sure that you are not relying on raising a hand in a tent meeting. Predestination. Being sprinkled as a baby. Eating a cracker dipped in grape juice. Walking an aisle. repeating someone’s mantra. Being pressured into it.
And the biggest offenders… everyone in your family is a Christian, and you feel like you need to pretend.
Get it right today. The Rapture could be this afternoon. It could be before you’re done reading this.
