I no longer have an email .. no internet
My eight-year-old son is enquiring about the rapture I have no idea how to explain it Can you help me
Just wondering how you posted this if you don't have internet? Never mind, it don't matter. Tell your kid that the rapture is like magic but not magic. It will be like one second you are here, doing what ever you are doing and then, "Poof.", you are in paradise.
Signs Before the Rapture Caught Up
I've found good Bibles at Goodwill or Walmart. Try to get a King James Version or a NIV or NKJV.
The world is experiencing many of the SIGNS mentioned in
. Fires, earthquakes, economy collapse, riots and wars; pandemics. You have a wise child.
Time of the end
There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies (I.e. Syria, Iran, Russia, China) you will know that its desolation is near.
They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the TIMES Of The Gentiles ARE FULFILLED
25 "There will be SIGNS in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.
26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.
27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your REDEMPTION is drawing near.
32 "Truly I tell you, THIS GENERATION will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.
33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but MY WORDS will never pass away.
34 "Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.
35 For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth.
36 Be always on the WATCH and PRAY that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man (Jesus). Be born again now.
1 Thessalonians Chapter 4 would be a very good starting point. 4:16 says that we who are alive and remain will be "caught up" together with them in the clouds. These two words "caught up" are where we get the word Rapture from.
Hope this helps some with your son. I'm currently studying this subject along with prophecy so if I can be of help just say so.
