it wasnt meant for it to be taken literally. what "a thief in the night means" is that we will be unprepared when the lord comes.

Surely you know that "like a thief in the night" is not to be taken literally. It means that His return will be unexpected. One does not expect a thief to come.

Have you ever heard of a metaphor? Have you ever heard of analogies?
Look in a dictionary or an encyclopedia to find out what those words mean.


China, huh? I hope your family are not among those who are tortured. That country is well known for being anti-Christian.

By the way, the people who believe this also beleive you will be gone in an instant and won't have time to pack, make calls, etc.

You don't know a lot about The Rapture, do you?

Blessings!

Remember where he says " two will be in bed ,one left one taken,two will be at the mill one left one taken two will be in the field,one left one taken??
1)bed- night sleeping
2) mill- afternoon grinding the harvested wheat
3) field -morning plowing before it is too hot
That covers the worlds time zones as it happens to all at the same time.
