Faith will be uploaded to her maker sometime in September. I just thought we ought to mark the occasion in some small way. So this is the small way.

Edited by Tangle, : Given her another 31 days to be raptured.

That is most unfortunate.

She, at least, believed in a better place.

I hope that belief comforted her in her final moments.

Faith she was and faith she had.

Reports of my untimely rapture are greatly exaggerated. Why today? It's not even September 1st. Besides, I have Rosh Hashana in mind or some time around there or afterward, and although it would be lovely I am not at all dogmatic about it, just hoping. And not even completely hoping since I'm torn about those who would be left behind.

And besides, I'm scared to death of suddenly flying up into the air.

And besides again, I wouldn't be the only one from EvC to be raptured. Probably Phat, jaywill, mike the wiz, ICANT, iano and some I'm no doubt forgetting.

Ok, I've given you another 31 days.

As for the others, well let's just see how you work out, they don't seem to be making any predictions.

I believe that all airline pilots should be required to be un-repentant sinners so when rapture happens someone can land the plane.

I think if there will be a rapture, it weill happen somewhere around 2030, its about the time shit will really start hitting the fan because of climate change.

If I'm raptured there will be millions of others raptured too

And all the others I listed I assume. But of course it's nice to think I'd be missed, except I'm not sure you'll have much time to miss me. As I just posted on another thread:

Message 60 has:

2Peter3:10 writes:

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night....

The Rapture is to usher in The Day of the LORD which is referred to many places in scripture. This is another term for the Great Tribulation. Both terms refer to a seven-year period that is the as-yet-unfulfilled prophecy of the last "week" of the Seventy Weeks of Daniel 9, that were all fulfilled but this last one.

Timing issues aside, if anyone has even a smidgen of an inkling that any of this might be true...

Remember that the thief on the cross who was crucified beside Jesus went to Paradise with Him because he admitted he was guilty of the crime that he was being punished for, and acknowledged that Jesus was the Messiah. Salvation is that simple. (Luke 23:39-43)

And the prophet Joel said:
"Whoever calls on the Name of the LORD will be saved."

Joel2:31-2: writes:

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

Fortunately, the Great Tribulation will only happen if the Cult of Ignorance continues to hold political power.

If I had a smidgen of an inkling that it was true, I'd sell what I have and give to the poor (Matthew 19:21).

That would be a start, I suppose, but it wouldn't save you.

And perhaps some you would never expect. Or maybe they will all get raptured and we will get stuck here with the religious nuts! THAT would be horrible

Add By Edit:

The Play would go something like this.....

*Poof!!* Rapture happens one day....out of the blue. jar looks around, scratching his beard and wondering what sort of logic, reason, or reality led to the scene he now sees.
GOD: Yes, jar. Faiths God AM I. Go ahead and laugh.

jar: *bursts out in laughter at the irony of it all.* Don't put me near those religious nutjobs if any of them made it! I can't imagine a worse hell.....

ringo: I'm not talking to any gods today. I've done just fine without them...but I notice all my street folks are up here, and they are no longer asking for spare change! Surely this must be a place full of liberals!

tangle: This whole day is preposterous! Look around! Go ahead...we have no evidence, but we surely will get some momentarily. Wheres the religious nuts anyway? They always had some fantasy about all this!

dWise1: Oh for crying out loud! This entire scenario has the markings of a drug-induced hallucination! We all know that the book was written as a marketing gig!

*meanwhile, Phat, jaywill, mike the wiz, ICANT, marc9000, iano and some Faith forgot are suddenly realizing that everyone left except them!*

Phat: Well, there goes the Forum! I'm actually quite angry! The economy is collapsing and I deserve better! God owes me BIG TIME!

jaywill: You have so much to learn. Sit down and have a Bible Study!

Faith: Even though we got left behind, I'm 100% certain that scripture has an explanation...apart from that pesky Matthew 25 that jar used to always talk about! In fact, I'm convinced Satan took them because we are believers and yet here we sit!

Edited by Phat, : added EvC Forum Play
