Worship: For Heaven’s Sake People are being taught that the “thief in the night” texts mean that Jesus will come quietly and take those who are ready, then return again with glory, and the time between allows there to be a second chance at salvation. Not so, says the Bible. Pastor Flemons explained…

Revelation 22:11 and 12 clears up the “second chance” theory: “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still; and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” All of our chances come while we are alive and prior to the Second Coming of Christ.
The “secret rapture” theory gets its strength from those “thief in the night” Bible texts, which really only refer to the fact that we don’t know the exact day nor hour of Christ’s Second Coming. Therefore, there is an element of surprise, as that of a thief in the night. Pastor Flemons noted that 2 Peter 3:10 is a particularly powerful text in that it shows not only the element of surprise of Christ’s coming but also the fact that it is not a secret nor quiet event. Besides that, it shows that the state of the earth will not be habitable afterward. Let’s read it: “But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” That is clear.
Other texts used and explained include Luke 12:39; Revelation 3:3; and 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6. If we read those texts closely, we will see that the element of surprise is even removed when we are watching and praying as directed. But if not, then we will be very surprised and unprepared for His coming. It will be as a thief in the night.

Ten Rules for Exercise
- Exercise consistently at least five times a week.
- Exercise vigorously enough to maintain a sustained increased heart rate.
- Walk in the open air. It is the best exercise.
- Begin a walking program this way: start with a mild exercise and increase both the time and duration of the walk in increments. A good starting point for most people is 30 minutes a day. Increase the time and duration in 1-week increments.
- Let your goal be to walk briskly at least one hour per day.
- Avoid any vigorous exercise one half hour before and after each meal.
- Take a relaxing stroll after each meal. This will help digestion. Never sit down, lie down or recline just after a meal.
- Exercise in the morning; it is more therapeutic than evening exercise. But exercise in the evening is still very good.
- Choose rebounding, or use the treadmill or other household exercise machines, during inclement weather. They are good alternatives.
- Exercise during the cooler parts of the day, if possible, in summer.
