Left Behind - a Pile of Clothes







These two photos were taken at Red Rock Canyon in Nevada during a visit in April. When I took the picture, I didn't see an immediate message, but I was intrigued by the scene. There was something compelling about seeing this pile of clothes and shoes sitting all by themselves on top of a vast rock, with no one anywhere nearby.

It didn't hit me until I printed off the second picture showing the close-up. Then, it gave me chills. I suddenly saw it as a picture of what millions of piles of clothing will look like after the Rapture occurs. It's pretty powerful when viewed in that light.

I don't know what your belief is in the Rapture, but I believe Christ will come again and quickly gather up His children to take them up to Heaven some day (any day actually). Here's one of the scriptures that speak of that moment:

"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and the other left. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect" Matthew 24:36, 40-41, 44.

The overwhelming importance of that message is that every person needs to be ready for that hour - of which no one knows when it will be. Acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior is vital to being included in that amazing moment of Rapture. You don't want to be one of the many left behind who will be thoroughly mystified by millions of piles of clothes left lying in strange places all over the world. You don't want to witness the reality of the photo in this post. "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved."
