boy was left behind as left behind book released


The latest Left Behind book was released today. The Rapture: In the twinkling of an eye, countdown to the earth's last days. It's a Prequel. Big shocker there. I thought they had already written about the rapture in this series but they are cranking these things out non-stop and there's another one due out in August.

While writing this post I listened to the timlahaye.com website music which is quite addictive. The site opens with a flash animation diagramming 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 in case you can't understand it without pictures.

I made this picture for my earlier post about the Left Behind video game but it was way down at the bottom and I'll just assume it was so smooth as to be unnoticeable or too offensive for anyone to notice it but I thought it was really funny but no one said anything about it.

In an incredible stroke of fate, which played directly into my hands, allowing me to make a striking metaphor, a young boy was left behind by his parents after his own birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese (a pizza restaurant catering to children with arcade games and playgrounds).

In our rush to celebrate the wedding feast as the bride of Christ (the church) is reunited with Him in the last days as described in Revelation we've left behind the guest of honor. We've divided the body of the bride because some are pre-wedding cake and believe that the cutting of the cake should come before the dinner so that the everyone does not have to wait for everyone else to finish eating to get cake. Some are post-wedding cake and believe the process should be the reverse because everyone knows that cake comes after the meal and we don't want anyone to spoil their appetite. Some are a-wedding cake and believe there should be no wedding cake because it makes one fat and ugly and it might offend those who are already fat and we should be sensitive to the weaker conscience of our fatter brothers and not eat cake in front of them if it could cause them to stumble. Some are cake historicists and someone has already started eating the cake.

The bride is so caught up in "Her Day" and the planning for it that she hasn't talked to the groom for years. She used to read his love letters over and over but now skips to the back ones that have to do with the reception. He loves her dearly and is always accessible, but she ignores his calls. She could be living a full life with the person who loves her more than anyone else but instead she is packing weight on and filling her life with icing tastings and deciding what color the toothpics should be in total disregard for both the present and the future.

Acts 1:7 "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own Authority."

Yes, yes, how clever your "kiss my left behind" picture is and funny too. We got it the first time. Now quit posting it.
