an artist's musings on the concept of soul ascension

as the day of rapture came and went this last month. i started to think about the soul. it's lost place in art and in the world. so let's make some art about it. and some musings.
The Rapture is about getting God's people ready for a soul what am I doing to prepare for rapture?
Rapture is this ecstatic moment. i think of all good christians not looking for ecstasy in life but preparing for this one great historic moment to be flown to heaven?
What would it be like to find The Rapture everyday? What would it be like to prepare for something wonderous. So the crazy christian guy now says October 21, 2011 (the day he predicted the world to ACTUALLY the day of rapture).
So I thought I ould get my soul and myself ready or in poor grammtical form, more ready. I would start making more art to get out anything good before I go to heaven or hell. and to think about the soul and where is it now adays...

So what are the juicy parts of The Rapture?

There are a few points about The Rapture i find really interesting:

1) Soul flight

2) Redemption

3) Proving everyone wrong...lots of people think people who believe in The Rapture are what if it really did happen...that would be an amazing moment for those Christians out there.

4) Is this something to look forward to or something to fear?

5) Where does the body fit into this flight?

6) What does it mean to believe? and what does it mean to be good? and why do I think if I am good this God will take me anyway even if I haven't been beleiving whole heartedly?...

Maybe I am the only one out there that things The Rapture and the hype it got and the attention it was given is an amazing phenomenon for the times we are living in. sort of like when that Martian radio show was aired and people that it was real. We are living in a time of great change and fear. Somehow it makes sense people would cling to this idea of an esctatic moment where we all get to leave....if we've been good...

  1. Paige, I wonder if you could expand on the belief, that "being good" is good enough (to go to Heaven)? I know many people who believe this & I want to better understand. What do you base your belief of "being good" (enough) on? Where does this belief come from? I have no right to ask you of this favor to explain & so, appreciate your insight. I believe in what the Bible says, the source of the idea of the Rapture, something you appear also to believe in, but the Bible never says anything anywhere equating "being good" with getting "a ticket" to Heaven. In fact, the Bible says quite the contrary - its about a hope & promise that even though we as humans all do wrong and are all sinners and that no matter how hard we try we will always do wrong, that we are all also given the gift of grace & eternal life in Heaven so long as we individually choose to accept the gift of it - that if we belive in the real living Jesus & ask Him to come into our lives and be the guide for which we live, to strive to live like Him, that we will be given the gift of eternal life in Heaven, which starts with the Rapture. The Bible says Jesus is the only way to Heaven - there is no other way; not even "being good". If "being good" (enough) were a path to Heaven, why did Jesus die on the cross? If "being good" were enough, then Jesus died for nothing.

    Paige, your interest in the Rapture is beautiful & I hope you never stop seeking the truth! If there is anything I can do for you please don't hesitate to ask.
