Left Behind

A Letter Written To Those Left Behind On The Earth
Following The Rapture Of The Church

Greetings. The fact that you are reading this letter indicates that you have been left behind on the earth following the rapture of the Church. I can only imagine the fear and despair confronting you.

You may be asking, “How can tens of millions of people disappear from all over the world?” Many of you have now discovered that the common denominator of the missing people is their sincere faith in Jesus Christ as Son of God, Savior and Lord. The missing are Christians who are saved by grace through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

Perhaps, you are now aware that not one infant or child under the age of accountability remains on the earth. You may also learn that even babies in the wombs of their mothers, have been caught up to be with the Lord. Do not worry about these little ones. Every infant and child is eternally safe in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Of course, many self-proclaimed Christians who have been left behind, will say none of this is true, in attempts to rationalize their own theology, beliefs and lifestyle. Their way is the road to hell.

You are no doubt stunned, shocked, afraid, and remorseful.  The Apostle Paul, wrote the following to the Thessalonians, concerning the event called the “rapture.”

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Wherefore comfort one another with these words (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

Every person who had believed in and accepted the sacrificial death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ has now experienced His glorious return for them. As you read this letter, you can be assured that these believers have already seen the fulfillment of Christ’s promise when He said: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:1-3).

I am certain that massive chaos has resulted from the disappearance of all true believers and children from the earth. It is likely that martial law is in effect in many places and that emergency measures to keep evil elements from looting and fighting over the spoils of what is left have been instituted. Governments will tumble and there will be international disorder.

You may be asking, “Is this the judgment of God on an ungodly world?” Actually, His judgment upon the earth follows the rapture. Strange as this may sound to you, this judgment is God’s final effort to get the attention of every person who has ignored or rejected His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. God is allowing a multi-year period of trial and tribulation to come to those of you who remain. He has removed His church from a corrupt world that seeks its own way, its own pleasures, and its own ends.

The Bible tells us that God’s Holy Spirit has acted as a restrainer on evil. The Holy Spirit who has resided in His children (believers) has now temporarily left the earth. Without this restraint evil will be unleashed and demonic forces will run free on the earth. God has removed His hand and said in effect, “If you don’t want me world, try it your own way.” God’s purpose and desire, is to allow those who remain on earth, to turn to the Bible for truth and to Christ for salvation.

Importantly, I want you to know that your loved ones, your children and infants, your friends, and your acquaintances have not been snatched away by some evil force, some invasion from outer space, or disappeared into a parallel dimension. The airwaves will be flooded with theories. What sounded ludicrous to you before might sound logical now, but it is not. Even if evidence, such as video or audiotapes show that your loved ones are indeed somewhere else, you can be sure that this evidence is fabricated by those who have come to power following the disappearance of Christ’s church.

I want to warn you that soon a very charismatic leader, the Antichrist (the beast), will come into power and will sign a covenant with Israel for seven years (Daniel 9:27). This seven-year period of time is known as the “Tribulation.” During the Tribulation, there will be terrible wars, famines, plagues, and natural disasters. God will be pouring out His wrath against sin, evil, and wickedness. The Tribulation will include the appearance of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, and the seven seal, trumpet, and bowl judgments.

Remember, your one true source of protection and provision is the Lord God Almighty through His Son Jesus Christ the Messiah. The world will look for a person. The answer is in no other name, but Jesus Himself. Whatever you do, even unto physical death and torture, do not allow the new world government’s mark to come upon you or your family or friends. If you take this mark, you will be forever separated from God.

By taking this mark you are in effect declaring that your hope is in this new One World Government and not in the One True God. Those not taking the mark will be arrested and likely put to death. Endure this with the knowledge that it was predicted to you before it occurred. The same God who predicted this will be awaiting your arrival in the kingdom of Heaven if you are forced to endure unto physical death. Sorrow may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning: (Psalm 30:5).

About halfway through the seven years, the Antichrist will break the covenant with Israel and make war against it. The Antichrist will commit “the abomination of desolation” and set up an image of himself to be worshipped in the Jerusalem temple (Daniel 9:27; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-10), which will have been rebuilt. The second half of the Tribulation is known as “the Great Tribulation” (Revelation 7:14) and “the time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7).

During these times the earth will be undergoing great upheaval. The book of Revelation describes some horrific times through a series of judgments. More than one-third of the world’s population of seven billion people will die. Meteors, earthquakes, what may be nuclear disaster, war, famine, and many others.

Pay very careful attention when two witnesses appear in Jerusalem in defiance of this wicked world leader. These two men are God’s prophets and they will speak justly in judgment against the world. They will be dressed in sackcloth, which will make identifying them easier. They will also have miraculous powers. Listen carefully to these two men and do not disobey them because they are from God.

At the end of the seven-year Tribulation, the Antichrist will launch a final attack on Jerusalem, culminating in the battle of Armageddon. Jesus Christ will return, destroy the Antichrist and his armies, and cast them into the lake of fire (Revelation 19:11-21). Christ will then bind Satan in the Abyss for 1000 years and He will rule His earthly kingdom for this thousand-year period (Revelation 20:1-6).

The disappearance of the saints and children, the chaos left behind, and the despairing of the heartbroken are evidence that what I am saying is true. Pray that God will help you. Receive His salvation gift right now. Help each other. Be generous. There is no fear in Love. God is Love. We never make decisions out of fear (Philippians 4:4-9). There is no life in reliving your sin or wallowing in fear. There is life in completely acknowledging your utter depravity together with His complete HOLINESS. When you put those two fully opposite truths together in one thought, great praise, service, and faith comes forth and you will know what to do.

God wants to forgive your sins and provide you eternal life. As the scripture reveals in Ezekiel 33:11, “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live.” God freely offers you forgiveness, pardon, and eternal life if you look to Him (John 3:14-15).

In John 14:6, the Bible tells us very clearly that Christ is the only way to God and eternal life. Recognize and acknowledge to God and before men that Jesus is God’s Son and the only Way to Heaven.

It is now my prayer that you be strengthened and guided by His Holy Spirit during the cataclysmic events that are about to unfold throughout the world. Trust in God and know that He will guide you through all of this and give you strength and everything that you need.

Remember, this is everyone’s last chance to escape eternal separation from God and His love. Like you, others will be searching for answers to what is happening in every family, in every city, in every country on Earth.

But if you have come to know and trust Him then shine like a righteous light before men! Stand strong if you are required to give your mortal life for the sake of Christ. Remember that the moment you close your eyes on this life you will open them again in the presence of Jesus Himself. Eternity with Him is an eternity more than the few short years left here. Endure it with joy, sharing your faith always! He, and all of your missing loved ones and acquaintances will be waiting to greet you and welcome you to the Kingdom of Heaven.

May God richly bless, guide, and strengthen you through the trials that are being poured out onto the world. May He make His light to shine through you into a world He desperately wants to reconcile to Himself. May you be a great soul winner in these final days of His harvest, and may you be rejoined to your loved ones as soon as His will permits.
