The Sunday Message

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. -1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (NIV)

Many Christians believe this is “the rapture” or “judgment day.” There have been movies and shows about it before, but there’s a new movie coming out in October called “Left Behind The End Begins.” It looks pretty good.

Here is the story from the movie’s website:

“In the blink of an eye, the biblical Rapture strikes the world. Millions of people disappear without a trace. All that remains are their clothes and belongings, and in an instant, terror and chaos spread around the world. The vanishings cause unmanned vehicles to crash and burn. Planes fall from the sky. Emergency forces everywhere are devastated. Gridlock, riots and looting overrun the cities. There is no one to help or provide answers. In a moment, the entire planet is plunged into darkness.”

The trailer for “Left Behind The End Begins” is one of those trailers that made my skin tingle watching it.

Here it is:

So here’s the question: Are You Ready?

Most folks learned about the constitution in school and know at least a couple amendments. Many people know about the freedom of speech and freedom of the press and the right to keep and bear arms.

The Sunday Message

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.Romans 13:1 (NIV)

It probably causes deep pain and discomfort to some folks who read Romans 13:1. Some people interpret Romans 13:1 as saying that anyone who is in authority has been basically appointed to that position by God.

I guess that passage causes misery to those who dislike Barack Obama, or to those who dislike George W. Bush.

I can already hear some holier-than-thou people saying, “My God would not allow XXXX to be President.”

Relax folks. God is in control.

We may not understand what God does right now, but I believe we will.

Although we may not understand all of what God does, one has to believe that with some people who have been placed in authority, God does have a great sense of humor…
