As you know, today is supposed to be the day of the Rapture. As you also probably know, May is Zombie Apocalypse Awareness Month. Odd that these two events should fall at the same time, but fitting I suppose. Honestly, how else would you like to be Raptured? I enjoy the challenge of having to face down hordes of zombies just to make it to October.
Okay, now that I’m done sharing the addresses my husband found a couple of weeks ago, let’s talk about the zombies.
Yes, zombies. I’m all for a Zombie Apocalypse if there is going to be a Rapture! Seriously! It will really make things interesting. I mean, things will be interesting anyway since there’s going to be a worldwide earthquake and a bunch of people are going to suddenly disappear at 6:00 pm (who knows if it’s central, or Greenwich Mean Time?), but I’m talking about the five months to follow. You know you’ve taken the quiz that tells you if you’ll survive the Zombie Apocalypse! (You don’t have to admit it to me, but you and I both know, you’ve taken it!) Who really will survive?
AND, zombies are even discussed!!! The people who wrote for The Latter Rain website don’t seem to really get what they’re saying, but they are talking about ZOMBIES!!! I love it! Here it is:
We know that everyone that has died, both saved and unsaved, will be resurrected:
“Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.” (John 5:28-29)
The resurrection of the believers occurs at the time of the Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) so we know the resurrection of the unbelievers must occur near that time or shortly thereafter. This verse doesn’t say that the unsaved will be resurrected to any kind of life or conscious existence. The punishment for mankind’s rebellion is spiritual death. There is no indication in the Bible that the dead unbelievers will once again be brought back into conscious existence.
