"Being Translated" and "Caught Up in God's Spirit!"

We see in Scripture the first one to be 'translated' was Enoch, who walked with God and was "taken" (not by death, but SuperNaturally).

Next, I think of Elijah, who the LORD gave a ride in the "chariot of fire pulled by horses of fire" up in a whirlwind!

Before Elijah left he parted the Jordan river, by striking it with his rolled up cloak, and he and Elisha (his predecessor) walked across on dry ground - Similar to Moses using the rod, God empowered, to split the river, for the Exodus rescue.

Noah. He and his family safely kept in a boat while the earth was flooded. Taken out of the scene while some cleansing took place.

Again, Lot and his family. They were ushered out, successfully, before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

So, it's not unlikely that God will "punish His own" with "those who don't believe Him."

History shows that God sometimes elects to translate and catch up & out some and leave others, 'before' death occurs.

Something to consider when pondering the Rapture of those who profess that "Jesus Christ as LORD." That truth may save you a lot of grief, and those your care about, if you choose to be among the few who escape the coming Wrath, just as Noah, Lot, the fleeing Exodus group and Elijah and Enoch!

The Only Way to Fly!
