What does YOUR rapture look like?

...Seriously. For those of you that believe Jesus is comin' round the mountain sometime in your lifetime, what's the rapture going to look like? Is it going to be a Star Trek-esque effect? Are you going to climb a literal golden ladder that will descend? Will you literally make like superman and fly?

How do you envision this occurring?

Quote:
"Natasha has just come up to the window from the courtyard and opened it wider so that the air may enter more freely into my room. I can see the bright green strip of grass beneath the wall, and the clear blue sky above the wall, and sunlight everywhere. Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression and violence, and enjoy it to the full."

- Leon Trotsky, Last Will & Testament
February 27, 1940

Well I'll give my ex-tian

Well I'll give my ex-tian account. I pretty much thought jesus would do the whole 'thief in the night' bit.One moment all the (true) chrisitians would be here,the next just empty piles of clothes.Nothing spectacular.

Oh,and try not worry about the thousands that will die from massive worldwide freeway disasters from empty cars,planes falling out the skies,and surgeons disapearing. What's a little collateral damage for god?

Exactly, I don't think God's even satisfied until he spills a little ( or a lot ) of blood.

velocirapture

mine would probably have involved raptor jesus and something like this:

any way, back when I was a christian I didn't think about the rapture and figured that revelations was made up like the noah's flood story and the jonah and the whale crap, though if I had told any one I thought they were made up I would have gotten a telling off from most people or shouted down and belted by my grandmother.

Hey, Will. as long as you

Hey, Will. as long as you don't get confused and end up with hot beer and cold chicks. Maybe that's hell. Thanks for the invite, but I believe I'm on a different continent to you and can't afford the petrol.

My wife's father used to enjoy telling them about the rapture on car trips when she was little. How the xstians would disapear and then graphically describe all of the accidents and horrible things that would happen to the people left behind. Gotta love religious nuts (or not).
