The Twinkling Of An Eye

“in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:52 New American Standard Bible)

The opening video of this post is very illustrative, and true, of the things that will take place on earth, after the catching up of the saints occurs, and a seven year time of tribulation begins (John 14:1-6; 1 Corinthians 15:50-54; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). The video shows things on earth that will take place after all of the born again believers in Christ, whom are known as “the church,” are suddenly removed from the earth.  Confusion, chaos and violence will be rampant, and will lead to a time in world history that will be like that of none prior. For those, whom dwell upon the earth (earth dwellers, Revelation 3:10), the judgments of God will be poured out in the form of: an ungodly conqueror, conflict on earth, worldwide scarcity and famine, widespread death, martyrdom, cosmic disturbances, and other judgments of God that will lead to the second coming of Christ at the Battle of Armageddon.

Those “whom dwell on the earth,” did not accept Christ as their Lord and Savior prior to the catching up of the church;  in essence, “they were not born again.”  Small children, infants, and other people not having the mental capacity to make a decision to accept Christ as their Lord and Savior, will be made to be born again by God. There will be those whom are are left behind, that will accept Christ. But, there will be earth dwellers whom will continue to defy God, even as they see His judgments being poured out on the earth (Rev 3:10, 6:10, 8:13, 11:10, 13:8, 13:14, 17:8). The primary reason for the tribulation, as described in these opening two paragraphs, is for a time when God will judge sin, and will draw unbelieving Jews to accept Christ as their Messiah. The second half of the seven-year tribulation period is described by Christ in the following verse:

Matthew 24:21 (NASB)

“For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.”
