The Vision

On March 13, 2022, I woke up in the wee hours and had a vision. I saw the four front legs of two horses. The legs were dark gray and brownish, and they were galloping through the misty vapor of a cloud. They were moving gracefully, almost as if in slow motion. I knew in my spirit that the legs belonged to two horses that were drawing a chariot across the sky. I knew that the chariot was on course to circle the whole earth. I was watching the legs from behind, as if I was seated inside the chariot, looking out toward the front of it.

At end of the vision, our family rooster made an unusual crow several times (three, if I’m remembering correctly). It sounded like he was saying “Woe, woe, woe.”

The Interpretation

I knew in my bones that this vision was of the rapture. The Bible tells us when the final trumpet sounds, dead believers will be raised to life and caught up to Jesus first. Then, the living believers will be caught up (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). In the blink of an eye, all Christians who have ever lived will receive their resurrection bodies (1 Corinthians 15:52). I’m not sure if this catching up will involve chariots, or if the chariot in my vision was simply God’s way of expressing the rapture to me.

I believe the three “woes” are a warning to the earth. When Christians are raptured, God will give the remaining humans over to their godlessness. An unbelieving world will finally get what it wants—an earth that is free from Christ and His Christians…but not for long. Jesus will return and reign as King of All!

Stay Ready and Take Comfort.

We cannot know the day or hour of the rapture, but the Bible tells us to stay ready because it can happen at any moment. I do believe the rapture will happen soon, perhaps in my generation or my children’s. I dare not say for certain. The timing of the rapture is God’s business, and it will happen according to His perfect plan.

The Bible also tells us to comfort each other with the hope of the rapture. So, take comfort, Brothers and Sisters. Keep your faith in Christ alone. Pray always, that you may be counted worthy to escape the hour of trial (Luke 21:36).

The Rapture is not Escapism for Christians.

The rapture does not mean that Christians will escape life’s sufferings. All humans suffer. That’s a fact. The rapture keeps Christians from God’s final outpouring of wrath on the world, also known as the Great Tribulation. Jesus already took God’s wrath for us on the cross, and those who believe in Jesus will not have to experience this end-times tribulation.

The Point of the Rapture is to Glorify God.

The point of the rapture is not so much about the exodus of Christians from Earth, though that will be the major event. The point is to make God’s power and authority known to all. Just as God made his power known throughout the whole world by the plagues He inflicted upon Egypt in the Book of Exodus, the rapture will make known God’s glory throughout the world. God will remove His children from the earth and unleash epic worldwide plagues that will give testimony to His power and supremacy.

There’s Still Hope if You Miss the Rapture.

If you are left behind at the rapture, don’t bow to the Anti-Christ or take his mark (Revelation 13:16-17), even if it means you must become a starving vagabond. Help the Jewish people, and wait for the return of Jesus. He will come back, and if you’re ready for His return, He will welcome you into His Kingdom. If you become a Christian during the Great Tribulation and pass away, Christ will take you to Himself. God is so merciful that even if you miss the rapture, you can still believe and enter into Christ’s Kingdom.

You Don’t Have to Miss the Rapture.

Don’t miss the rapture. Believe today. Believe now. It’s that simple. Just settle it in your heart at this moment to believe that Jesus came to earth, died for your sins on the cross, and was raised to life three days later. He is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, the Messiah. Believe and be saved!
