I have to admit that I have gone back and forth on the subject of the ‘rapture’ — where God calls up living Believers to Him at some point during the End of Days. For what it is worth, at this point I am sort of taking the middle ground, arguing that the rapture could happen during the earlier stages of the End of Days. Given that, I will retouch on a very early theme of this site — alien abduction.
Somewhat tongue-in-cheek, I argued that all the nonsense about aliens and Steven Spielberg’s large body of movies about aliens coming to Earth, are all preparation for the coming rapture……huh, you may exclaim! Should the rapture happen in the earlier part of the End of Days, the worst of what is to come has not yet come, so things will be bad, but not nightmarish bad. When God raptures His Believers, the world will be looking for any kind of answer to explain what happened. The one answer that people will leap to accept is that there are indeed aliens and they are hostile, as they abducted millions (hopefully tens of millions) of people from the world. The mass media will be awash with ‘proof’ of alien visitation. Who knows, perhaps the Beast will even use this excuse to gather the world’s armies to Armageddon to do battle with the returning Christ.
What got me thinking about this again was a recent article on UFO sightings — http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/mystery-disc-shaped-ufo-could-worlds-4073524
