If you are reading this letter it is because my husband, children and I have disappeared without a trace, along with perhaps millions of others world wide. I am sure that there has been much speculation as to the cause of these disappearances, but there is only one real answer. Look around and see who it is who has gone missing It will be anyone who professed Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, those who trusted only in Him for their salvation. Jesus has snatched His Church out of the world for a very specific reason.
God is about to pour His wrath out on the inhabitants of the earth in one last ditch effort to get humanities attention. You have been left behind because prior to the rapture (the snatching away of the true Christians) you have refused to believe in Christ for salvation, or to repent of your sins that have separated you from Him.
You still have the opportunity to repent and ask Jesus to save you. But I will tell you the truth. Your future is more uncertain now than it has ever been. There will be cosmic events, famines, floods, earthquakes and plagues over the next several years that will wipe out 3/4 of the population of the earth. You only stand a 1 in 4 chance of being alive at the end of the next 7 years, a time that the Bible calls the Tribulation. If, by chance, you do survive and still haven't repented, then you will face the full fury of God's wrath when He returns at the end of that 7 years. My advice to you is to ask Jesus to forgive you and save you, ask Him to give you a new heart so that you may follow Him and be assured that you have a place in His kingdom.
If you die without becoming a Christian, you will spend eternity separtated from God. You will suffer torment forever with satan and his angels. I do not want that to happen and neither does God. That is why He has made a way for you to be saved. That is through Christ only.
Here is a prayer that will work. The important thing is that you mean this with all your heart, that you believe in Jesus as the Son of God, and that you really want salvation.
Just Pray: "Dear God, I know that I have sinned against you in many ways. My sins have separated me from you. Because of my sins I deserve Your judgment. I believe that Your Son, Jesus, has come in the flesh, died on the cross, and rose from the dead to save me from my sins and reunite me with You. Jesus, I am sorry for what I have done and I ask for your forgiveness. Please give me a new heart and save me. Thank you for the free gift of eternal life. Amen."
If you have just prayed this prayer, congratulations. You are now a Christian. You belong to Jesus. It is important for you to study His word, the Bible, to find out what He wants of your life. Start in Matthew and read through the New Testament, then go to the Psalms. After that, work your way through the old testament.
Now, as for what you are about to face. The political, economic and social conditions you are no doubt witnessing right now have been foretold for over 2000 years. The books of Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelations should be at the top of your reading list. I would suggest finding new believers with whom to study these things.
You will face many hardships in the weeks and months ahead. You may even face martyrdom. In fact, in just a few years time, the leader that is about to make his appearance on the world scene will make it mandatory to take a mark in order to buy or sell anything. No matter what, do not take that mark, because if you do you cannot be saved. You will align yourself with the enemy of your soul if you do. No matter what, cling to God to provide everything you need during these desperate times. He loves you very much and really does have your best interest at heart.
I am including a list of scripture references to get you started on your studies, including the references to the rapture, the beast (otherwise known as The Antichrist), and salvation by faith. It is my prayer that you not mourn our disappearance. Rather that you would now accept Christ and be assured that we will meet again in Paradise.
