You are watching: What to do if you miss the rapture

But they had actually not provided much thmust those that will be left behind. Until freshly.

What acquired them thinking was the emerging crisis in the Middle East -- which some say fulfills Scriptures prophecy -- and an unusual series of summer lectures at their evangelical church in Boca Raton.

Trementozzi remembered how she and her household reacted to that first lecture in July. Driving amethod through her husband and also 2 sons, she recalled, "Tright here was a tamong excitement on the means home."

In comparison, it was among the August lectures -- "What to Do if You Miss the Rapture" -- that made the greatest impression on Lee.

Among the survival techniques explained in the lectures:

-- Gather with others to review the Bible and also pray together.

-- Watch for the Antichrist, a charismatic European or North Amerihave the right to leader that will subtly, yet properly, rotate civilization amethod from God.

-- Identify the Antichrist by the character 666. The Antichrist may wear it, display screen it or usage it, and need the same of others. It is the note of the "beast" -- Satan.

-- The Antichrist may ban Bibles. Horde them. Hide them. Share them.

-- Be all set to gather water, food and other offers and escape from human being utilizing the symbol, obeying the Antichrist"s orders and turning from God"s teachings.

Those specifics were surpincreasing, Lee sassist.

"That was more powerful than any type of various other ministers have actually shelp before," he rereferred to as.

And the theme of the lecture was clear, Lee said.

"It"s going to be difficult going, brother."

To be part of the rapture, "you should belong to Him. You need to be watching. And you should be "keeping your garments," that is, planning for the future," Crabtree shelp. "No man knows when (the rapture) is going to occur. So let it uncover you doing your finest at whatever before you"re doing."

If you miss out on it, he said, "do then what you must be doing now: studying the bibles and asking Jesus right into your heart."

Those who perform will be treated sensibly, the scholar said.

"If God is anypoint, he is just," Crabtree shelp.

Crabtree, a minister for 30 years and an professional in biblical prophecy, specifically ready the lecture series for Boykin, church pastor.

Crabtree, currently executive director of Devonshire Estates at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, is Boykin"s father-in-legislation.


They first talked around doing such a collection of lectures years earlier, yet were not able to arrangement it until Crabtree relocated from the Midwest to South Florida.

Recently, the occurring Center East crisis, which is foretold in "Exodus," also sustained a need to talk about the rapture, Crabtree sassist. "Seeing these points take place ... enable it to manage your lifestyle, and what manner of perchild you must be in light of what"s going to take place," he sassist.
