I've been wondering how much of an impact the rapture will have on the world. Right now Satan is prospering the occult where many who profess to be Christians are enjoying witchcraft in Harry Potter, occult games, and Lord of the Rings. Plus rock and roll music has taken over many churches. The guise of "good" religious rock has been dropped and the tare kids are obsessed with secular rock and roll. Sadly, in many cities it is very hard for a saved person to find a solid Bible based church assembly. If you don't live in a Bible belt area then a good solid Bible believing church is very rare.
When the rapture finally happens, it doesn't look like a whole lot of people will be going up. Of course all saved people will go up in the rapture. My point is that there just is not a whole lot of saved people in the world. Look at this verse to illustrate that point:
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
As you can see in the above verse that the majority of people will not be saved. This can be easily seen by looking at all the rejection of the Lord Jesus. Even those who profess to believe in Jesus show their rejection of Him as they accept the occult, reject sound Biblical doctrine, attend liberal churches, and love their demonic rock and roll music. For many, their actions deny the so-called faith they claim to possess! Read the following:
16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate
There may be "pockets" of churches where whole churches go up in the rapture, but that will be a very rare occurrence. As a rule God has His people scattered. There will be a few here taken and a few there taken.
We'll have to see but maybe the rapture will be more of a non-event to the world than we have given credit. I know back in the 80's the popular view was that the world would be turned upside down. But back then the wheat and tares were growing together and they were difficult to tell apart. Today as we approach the great harvest the wheat and tare is in full bloom. It is very easy to spot a false Christian tare. These people profess to be a Christian but they love the same things the devil loves. Now we are in the year 2003 and there is a world-wide apostasy and a great famine of the things of the Lord. I'm beginning to wonder differently about the impact of the rapture. I really don't think the saved Christians will be missed that much. The main shock of the rapture will be the disappearance of young children and babies. That event will shock the world much more than the disappearance of the FEW Bible believers.
Remember after the rapture many people will be saved. In those days when the antichrist is ruling and reigning on earth, men and women must make a quick choice. They must choose between God and Satan. Sadly many will choose Satan and will worship him and accept the mark of the beast. However the Bible indicates that many, many, many people will choose to reject the devil and will accept the Lord Jesus!
Their lives will be short as the devil and his people will literally round up and kill all people who refuse to worship Satan and receive the mark of the beast. Only a few will survive to the end of the 7 year tribulation period and enter the 1000 year millennial Kingdom living as a mortal.
To conclude this tract I would encourage all who read it to commit their lives to the Lord Jesus. Repent of your sin and receive the Lord Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Saviour. Keep in mind that one day soon we will all be standing before the Lord Jesus.
