But after the three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on. Revelation 11:11
God’s super-charged witnesses are finally killed, but its not the end. Then God resurrects them for all the world to see. Amazing. They are either literal witnesses or symbolic of the church being raptured. In either case, God’s power to resurrect is on display. Some people are still afraid or unprepared for God’s calling them home.
Will I be ready when God says “Come up here”? I certainly hope so.
God, I hope I can be a faithful witness all my life. Help me be bold. Season my words with grace. And when my time is done or Your time is fulfilled, I will be ready for your call “Come up here”.
