Oh Donna, what a great imagination you have! I’m jealous. You said, “sounds to me like we’ve already been raptured according to this Scripture; …”
I sure might have saved myself a lot of grief over and over if I’d just been able to convince myself that I had already been raptured. But I would certainly suffered from a frightening case of cognitive dissonance. “Why is everybody up here still being so mean to each other? And where is Jesus? And where is my dear departed mother?”
Thanks for your multitude of inspiring posts, Donna, and for all the pretty little tilde’s ~~~~ I’ve missed both you and them, but honestly didn’t really imagine you’d gone ahead of us.
Ah, but you are raptured, brother! Every time you are in the Presence of Jesus you are in rapture! The most amazing moments of my life have been while in His Presence, as He reveals Himself to me. Just a taste of the things to come.
