Friday I posted a piece on Friday Fictioneers called “No Fake News” in which I theorized that a playground of children disappeared as a new reporter was standing by. She was shocked. What happened to the children? My question, “Was it perhaps that the rapture had taken place and the children were caught up with Jesus?” I did not have an answer. I still don’t. But there were some comments that made me want to expound on this event.
I remembered having written something at one time. I cannot find it on the blog, but I did find the subject on FB from 1914. I copy/paste it. Please give me some feedback on this subject.
QUESTION: Does anyone out there have a definitive answer about whether children below the age of accountability will be taken in the rapture? LeHaye/Jenkins Left Behind series indicate that they will be. I have heard young people (parents) express that they know enough about not taking the mark of the beast that they will not partake of such in that time. But I believe they have no idea of how easy it will be to take the mark rather than watch their children starve. I’m afraid they rest in a false peace. I call this a false hope based on scriptures such as Mark 13 and Matt. 24 that warn of the plight of the pregnant women and nursing mothers, numerous accounts of the destruction of cities where children are destroyed along with adults, as well as devastation caused by the sins of fathers to third and fourth generations. I’m afraid we are being led to saying “peace, peace” based on the premise of unaccountability. But I would surely like a message of peace if it is scriptural. So, anybody who can tell me? If it depends on parents, what if one is a Christian and the other is not? It is easier to just say they will be caught up, isn’t it? But I sure would like some scripture.
Please give me your thoughts.
If I blogged this category before, WP might pull it up in the extended reading at the bottom. If so, we can read it together. 😀 It will jog my memory. At least it would be worth checking comments if something does come up. We’ll see.
