Yeah, this is something I am trying to figure out, transporting myself or another around. Can't fucking wait until it is an actual possibillity. Hell, I'd transport myself to Heaven if there was such a place.

Oh wait, the word heaven was used in place of the word "sky" in The Bible? Meaning space? Hell yeah, I think I could rapture right on up to space...
Peace.

Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you

I've experienced this. I think I'll experience it again tonight once the kids are in bed.

What's your point?

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

"Oh wait, the word heaven was used in place of the word "sky" in The Bible? Meaning space?"

Can anyone confirm this?

If someone here believes in the Rapture, then how many exactly are Raptured bible-like, and why should they or you be included in the experience. If someone does study this concept then are the Raptured the same as the 144,000 witnesses? If so, who are they, and what are they witnessing?

eve,

I cannot tell you how many souls will be raptured. I dont think it is in the Bible. It's not hidden in words or codes. I dont think that God set a number.. because our changes and actions effect the final outcome.

I believe that those delivered from the world during the Rapture will be those that have accepted the love of God through the death of his son. That does not mean that anyone that doesnt believe in God or Jesus will die, or burn in hell. I just dont believe they will be raptured but left to finish the puzzle for themselves or hold on to other beliefs and deal with the consequences of that. Pride is insidious, thinking we are God is dangerous.

The 144,000 are not the same. I believe the 144,000 is referring to the original tribes and those that had come before Jesus.


"The greatest trick Satan ever pulled was convincing people he doesn't exist"

These of course are my interpretations of my life experience and the Bible. Your mileage may vary.
