About the Rapture

I think that it is a sign of a mature and balanced Christian to be flexible on the whole issue of the rapture and of last days' prophecies.
Here's the bottom line to what I believe about the Rapture. It's all just a matter of what from the bible particularly speaks to you. It's just a matter of emphasis.
What speaks to me mostly from the bible is the whole idea that 'for the sake of the elect, those days will be shortened'.
That tells me that the church will still be here; supported by the whole idea that the Lord saves through tribulation, not from tribulation.
We each need to be ready to meet the Lord face to face every day; that's the bottom line.
Maranatha
Mark 13:20 ``Unless the Lord had shortened {those} days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days.
Matthew 24:22 ``Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
