July 2nd is the day when the supposed Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) was said to have crashed. Altbough the day is celebrated by some on June 24, which is said to be the date that Aviator Kenneth Arnold reported the sighting of an unidentified flying object in the United States.
World UFO Day is an awareness day for people to gather together and watch the skies for unidentified flying objects.
I remember vividly when I was in primary school, we use to watch the skies to look for UFOs. And even played the computer game of UFOS so much more that it became very popular amongst my peers.
Today, as the world marks the day, what came to mind was about a similar future event but which has a contrast to the occurrence of UFOs.
It is a future event that would some day see the world also gaze into the skies prompted by the sound of trumpets that would Herald the descent of a King. It is the second coming of Christ.
The event would be so sudden that many would attempt to identify where the sound of a trumpet is coming from as well as the image of a man riding on a horse. Every eyes shall see Him. Some would be transformed while some would watch on, and would call to remembrance what has been said about Him. For many, it would be too late to make a change.
It is the rapture of the saints. A final call up of those who have been redeemed by the blood of the lamb. “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Rev. 1:7.
Unlike the UFO, everyone who sees him would recognize him. He would be an identified image. His source is heaven, his purpose is clearly to rapture the saints, for whom he has prepared a place in heaven (John 14:6). He’s Jesus Christ, the coming King. He is coming soon. Are you ready to meet him?
Be expectant. Be prepared. You’re winning! Yes, we are winning!
