C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

Rapture - Spam Mail!

Posted at a group I often visit, we come across an interesting website entitled: You’ve Been Left Behind

I will not question the sincerity of these persons’ Christianity, but I do have to question such an idea.

For $40 for the first year, claiming “Re-subscription will be reduced as the number of subscribers increases,” it is suggested that 6 days after the rapture of the church one will be able to send “150mb of encrypted storage that can be sent to 12 possible email addresses” and “another 100mb of unencrypted storage that can be sent to up to 50 email addresses.”

Honestly, this sounds like one is simply paying for document storage on a server.

So, one may ask, “How exactly will the system know the rapture has occurred?”

The site states: “We have set up a system to send documents by the email, to the addresses you provide, 6 days after the "Rapture" of the Church. This occurs when 3 of our 5 team members scattered around the U.S fail to log in over a 3 day period. Another 3 days are given to fail safe any false triggering of the system.”

Isn’t there a possibility that one of the 5 may be unsaved, and/or that within the 3 ‘fail safe’ days one could keep the system running to keep the revenue coming in?

Witness to your family and friends today, even in email if you desire, don’t put it in the hands of an email storage system that will be sending it out much later than necessary.

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
