Luke 21:36 KJV - Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

I HAVE ESCAPED!

I couldn’t believe it! It was really happening! Praise God, we were being caught up in the air just like the bible said! Oh, I always believed it would happen, but didn’t really think it would happen in my lifetime. Glory Hallelujah! One minute I was on my way to work and the next thing I knew I was soaring through the clouds with millions of others. As I looked around, everyone had a beautiful smile on their face and looked just as in awe as I felt. No one made a sound. We didn’t have to. We all knew where our destination was. I noticed everyone seemed to have taken on the spiritual body spoken of by the Apostle Paul. As I looked down at myself, I realized I was different as well. How did that happen? Just a moment ago I was totally human riding down the freeway singing along to Mercy Me and “I Can Only Imagine”, and now, here I was. And this was not my imagination. This was real! In the twinkling of an eye, I was changed. It was more than awesome but it didn’t matter how it all happened…... It just did and I knew that I was on my way home, finally to ever be with the Lord in the air. I had escaped. Praise the Lord!

Jesus’ face was before me in all His light and glory. He and the angels were leading us to heaven. Ever so often He would gaze at each one of us with a glowing smile that made you feel like you were the only one there and He had come just for you alone. He would say lovingly; “Come along my child, the Father is waiting to see you.” It was such a wonderful expectation; to really stand before God. What would I say to The Creator of the Universe? The great I AM. My Abba, Father. The most powerful feelings of love, peace and contentment had overtaken me as we soared through the heavens. No fear, no regrets, just love. I could hear the glorious angelic choir singing above us, beckoning us onward and it was so very beautiful.

Tranquility and perfect joy filled my soul and I was so happy I had come to know the Lord and accept Him as my personal Savior while on earth. It was the most important and best decision I had ever made, I told myself. But at that moment, out of the natural realm of time, I came to the realization that God had actually chosen me. He chose me. Wow. I looked at Jesus and He knew my thoughts. With a smile and affirmative motion of His head, He confirmed it. That made it all the more tender to my soul and I felt unworthy, yet at the same time, sanctified and righteous in His eyes. God truly loves us more than we can ever imagine or think. I now knew that to be true.

Something had definitely been different in the air this morning as I left for work. As the sun burst above the horizon, the colors in the sky were magnificent. A highly skilled artist could not have drawn it any more beautiful. I remembered thinking to myself as I drove down my neighborhood street, “This is the day the Lord hath made. Rejoice and be glad in it.” It certainly did turn out to be THE day to escape the tribulations to come upon the earth. Glory to God in the Highest. I have escaped! Amen….

This was stated so well, the longing fulfilled, the shedding of shame, the overflowing love.
I felt a thrill in my heart with the words, "Ever so often He would gaze at each one of us with a glowing smile that made you feel like you were the only one there and He had come just for you alone. He would say lovingly; “Come along my child, the Father is waiting to see you.” It was such a wonderful expectation; to really stand before God. What would I say to The Creator of the Universe? The great I AM. My Abba, Father. The most powerful feelings of love, peace and contentment had overtaken me as we soared through the heavens. No fear, no regrets, just love."

WOW!

It's great to escape. The very word 'escape' means freedom from something not pleasant. The excitement and joy you conveyed in your article come from your knowledge of Jesus and what He does in your life. This was very well written.

Loved this! I had almost the exact dream you described, exclaiming how I never thought it would happen but here we were GOING UP.

We WILL escape. It hurts my heart to think of those who will not listen, who cannot hear and will NOT escape. (I am torn between wanting Him to return soon and wanting a little more time to bring more into the fold).Anyway, lovely piece. I like the way you think. :0)
