For those who may not know, the lottery ticket or number that people buy to win the lottery. In California the lottery winner is determined out by randomly six numbers out of 50 numbers (the figures are approximate because I am not really familiar with it). I believe the odds of winning is somewhere from one in ten or twenty million combination of numbers. The pot or prize kept going up till somebody wins.
While the rapture is what most or some Christians believe is when Jesus Christ comes to earth secretly (unnoticed) to gather Christians in the air or clouds and the Christians will be taken to where Jesus is which will be out of this world. I believe in this and I have been expecting it since 1985. Many Christians have predicted the date even when the Bible says no one knows the day or the hour of the Lord's coming.The problem is used to be some Christians disposed of their properties thinking they won't need them when rapture occurs, the problem occurs when the rapture does not happen. So what is the solution ? Expect the rapture but maintain a regular life is what I will do. I will even love and serve the Lord with greater intensity and fervor.
So in the lottery, to win by let us say buying all the possible combination of numbers takes one in about 20,000,000 while in the rapture which I expected happening since 1985 and let us say I guess everyday, in 28 years I have 28 times 365 days per year, I have so far a total guess of 10220 times. For this year I have less than 365 guesses. But the chances of making it right keep increasing as years and days go by.
So in conclusion I enjoyed expecting the coming of the Lord each year. I have better chances of getting it right as each day pass by. One day it will happen , some think this is escapism, cowardice but not exactly that is why we Christians keep witnessing to the world about Jesus Christ. It is those who would not listen who are taking the risk.
