To: Everyone else
From: Those who have vanished
Re: The truth about what happened
This is to tell you exactly what is involved in the sudden disappearance of people around the world. It’s as simple as this: We who belong to Christ were called into the air above the planet in the rapture.Yes, that kooky, ridiculous, pie-in-the-sky, fly-away event that preachers of what you’ve thought of as fantasy have been proclaiming could happen at any moment did, in fact, happen. You are hearing, or will soon hear, every conceivable explanation of what caused this astonishing disappearance. Here are our guesses as to some of those explanations: It was some sort of quantum evolutionary leap, which will ultimately be great for mankind. It was a mass abduction by extraterrestrials -- an outgrowth of the singular abductions that have been reported over the years. It was a natural, scientifically explainable cosmic interaction that some human physiologies could resist, and others couldn’t. It was a supernatural movement into a higher form for those who disappeared –an ascension to godhood. It was punishment from the great cosmogonical mind, removing the evil from the world.
Don’t believe any of these or other explanations. To find out the absolute truth about what the mass vanishing actually involves, read in the Bible 1 Corinthians 15: 51-55 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. Also read John 14:1-3 to find out where we who vanished are presently located.
