Romans: Day Four

What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” Romans 4:3 (TNIV)

The Words “What does scripture say,” kept popping up in my mind as i was reflecting upon this chapter in Romans. Perhaps it is doing so because there are those who are claiming the rapture is coming tomorrow. How do those people handle the fact that it is May 21st on China at this point. Perhaps the rapture is on central standard time.

To be honest no one really knows. Paul in his letter entitled 1 Thessalonians 5.2 (TNIV) says.

“for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.”

Jesus even says in Matthew 24:42-44 (TNIV)

42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

So… there you have it. How i feel about this rapture according to scripture. It will come but no one knows when. So just sit back do all the good you can and live a life centered on focused on God and if the rapture comes then you will be fine. Reminds me of one my favorite songs growing up as a teenager.
