Raptured away

I saw Janet arrive in church this morning and then saw her go upstairs to take Sunday club with the children. I looked out for her afterwards to ask how her holiday had been - but she'd didn't reappear.

The only explanation I can think of is that the rapture happened and Janet was the only one taken.

(Some Christians believe that before the world ends, or Jesus returns, or the thousand-year war, I'm not sure precisely, that Christians will be sort of whisked away to heaven in a cloud. This is what's meant by the Rapture. So if Janet's the only to go church is in a sorry state. Although we wouldn't expect Chris to get there, would we?)

We have a variety of ideas in our churches concerning the RAPTURE and the 1000 year war, both derived from the book of Revelation, a prophetic book with Jewish heavy symbolism as John, its author was Jewish..

I have studied the book twice, taught a women's class on it once, relying heavily on written desertations about it.

My summation is the faithful will be victorious in the end, not matter what transpires. Faith is the victory.

I surely hope there are many victorious faithfuls!!!!!!!!!!!!
