In 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4, Paul gives to the church a standing order to "watch and be sober" for the "day of the Lord" which will come "as a thief in the night" so that "that day should not overtake (us) as a thief". NOW, PLEASE LAY ASIDE POPULAR IDEAS AND PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS AND THINK: If the "day of the Lord" which "comes as a thief in the night" is not the Rapture, then for what reason does Paul admonish the church to "watch and be sober" for it? If we are already safely in heaven and safely in the arms of Jesus when that day comes, it will be absolutely unnecessary for us to watch and be sober for that day because it will be absolutely impossible for us to be overtaken by it! Therefore, the imposition of such a standing order would be the extreme height of stupidity, and far be it from the great Apostle Paul to ever be associated with anything less than brilliance. However, if the "day of the Lord" which "comes as a thief in the night" is indeed the Rapture, then the associated inescapable destruction that both Paul and Peter says will accompany it (1 Thessalonians 5:2-3; Peter 3:10-12) obliterates any chance for a "second chance" that Jesuit Futurism affords those who are "left behind". In other words, such a standing order would make perfect sense. It is my sincere prayer and hope that the Holy Spirit will lead those who disagree to search the Scriptures, not to affirm what they already believe is truth, as was in the case of the author of Futurism, Jesuit Francisco Ribera, who was blinded by Satan for doing so, but to believe God's truth as it is found in Scripture to which the Holy Spirit desires to lead and guide us. Amen.
