The concept of retirement is much more familiar to most of us than that of rapture. Have you thought of preparing to be caught up in clouds to spend eternity with the Lord?
There are many views on when the rapture will take place - either before the great tribulation or some time later. We are not given a precise timeline, but it is a swirling question.
And perhaps it is a question that world leaders and media are already conspiring to answer, with the convergence of the real, fake, and the virtual. What will the response be to perhaps billions of people simply vanishing?
Will they attempt to rescue or retrieve them? Will it be classified as an act of unspecified terrorism, or simply a technical error? It will definitely be an unprecedented event which will provide rationale for unprecedented control on the remaining populace.
If the rapture is part of your hope for eternity, is it time to be earnestly involved in preparations for the holiness of that moment? So whether it happens sooner or later, your heart, soul, and mind will already be at rest on the side that matters.
"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet
shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."
