As they were walking along and talking, suddenly a fiery chariot pulled by fiery horses appeared. They went between Elijah and Elisha, and Elijah went up to heaven in a windstorm.
2 Kings 2:11 NET
When it’s time to go, it is time to go!
Elijah’s time on Earth was up. Elisha was going to take over for him.
When it happened, there weren’t any long goodbyes! God sent His fiery chariot to pick him up.
And this happened fast!
Elijah was one of a very few individuals who never experienced death. But he won’t be the last.
One day, one day soon, Jesus will split the skies and take His people to Heaven. Those that are alive won’t experience death either.
The issue will be with those left behind, those that Jesus doesn’t take to Heaven.
When this all goes down, it will happen fast. There won’t be time to get things right and prepared.
Your life and your faith need to be right now! And this isn’t something that you can get halfway right.
Do you really know Jesus? Don’t be caught unaware on that day!
It happens fast!
Father, thank You for Your love and mercy towards us that you sent Your only Son to die for our sins. I look forward to the day when we go home.
