Twinkling or Blinking of an Eye

Don’t be a procrastinator for Jesus! Today is the day to be sold out to Him… not tomorrow!

Because of the Rapture, tomorrow may never come!

When the trumpet sounds, and the shout from the archangel is heard, it will be too late to surrender your life to the Lord.

When Jesus comes, it’s over… and it happens fast!

51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  (1 Cor. 15:51-52)
There are numerous definitions of the “Twinkling/Blinking” of an eye. If the Apostle Paul is describing the speed of the rapture as a “Twinkle,” then he’s describing something so fast, it’s difficult to comprehend.

The “twinkling of the eye” is the time it takes for light to enter the eye, reach the back of the eye, and be reflected back out. Light travels at 186,000 miles per second, so the Twinkle is about one billionth of a second.

The “Blinking” is a bit slower. But still too fast to recognize. A blink lasts somewhere between 300 and 400 milliseconds, or considerably less than half a second.

Taking both of these into consideration, the reason why the Apostle Paul used this term was to assure us of the supernatural miracle of the Rapture. There is no human effort! It assures us that no one can impede it, slow it down, drag their feet or add anything to it.

When it’s on, it’s on, and up we go! In the millisecond it takes to be raptured, we will find ourselves in the presence of the Lord! We will “meet the Lord in the air.” Let’s just say it’s a supernatural event that takes place super-fast!

From Earth to Heaven and Back: A Tour You’ll Never Forget

Believers that are still alive at the trumpet sound, will instantly receive their glorified bodies, designed to last forever, and ascend to be with Jesus.

The Believer’s Itinerary after the Rapture is almost too amazing to comprehend. At the Rapture we will be escorted by Jesus up to the Father’s House in heaven. Imagine that trip!

The church will spend seven years in heaven with the highlight being the marriage of the Lamb just prior to descending back to earth with Jesus at His Second Coming! Revelation 19 depicts us on horses as the army of heaven accompanying Jesus to the Battle of Armageddon!

Every believer will make this roundtrip from earth to heaven and back. What a tour is in our future!

The “Twinkling/Blinking” could happen at any second. Just looking at the condition of this world today, everything spoken of by Jesus, Paul and the prophets is very much here.

Don’t make the mistake of believing in can’t happen today! Because when it happens, it will be long over before you even realize it took place. Hallelujah!

Today, right now, would be a good time to call on Him.
