The Last Day

There have been many predictions about the last day’s end of times – the rapture

In this story I make no predictions as to the actual date this will happen, but happen it will whatever sceptics may say

This is merely a story imagined in my story telling mind, but the truth is there for those with eyes to see


The Last Day

I awoke as normal this morning, expecting the normal hum drum day full of things to be done throughout the day as it unfolded

This seemed like just any other day, as I made my way into the kitchen thinking about breakfast

But as I did so, a nagging foreboding stirred up from deep inside my body stronger than my hunger pangs

I tried to ignore and brush it to one side as just hunger pangs which would soon subside once I had eaten

However even afterwards the feeling did not subside, lurking in the shadows so I could neither remove nor dismiss

I decided I would go for a brisk walk that should clear my head of what I decided was an early morning attack of feeling sorry for myself

The morning air was fresh with a touch of frost, I began to feel at ease even peaceful, until a memory popped back into my head from the previous night

Somewhere I had read about a lab that was turning human ashes (remains) into diamonds, I remembered that thought as disquieting

I shuddered as that thought replayed, and it intensified as that disquieting feeling arose once again

It was now stronger than ever, my body began to shake but not because of the cold air or that replaying thought

It was then I noticed how quiet it was outside, of course I didn’t expect other people as it was early, but there were no birds singing

Not one I listen as hard as I could straining to hear for any sound to break the unsettling silence

The only sound I heard was that of my own breathing and heartbeat, which seemed exaggerated

At that moment I felt totally alone and in desperate need of company, even a stranger or even a disagreeable person would have been welcome company at that moment

Then without warning I heard a distant rumble of what I took as thunder, so with that I chastised myself for being foolish and letting my feelings get the better of me and headed back home

On my way I was pleased to see other people out and about, and in my vanity I thought pretend I was just outside early due to insomnia

As I went towards someone I knew he was lifted from the ground as I hear a loud sound like a trumpet, I stood watching in disbelief as he then others were lifted

At the same moment the ground shook violently, then more people came running out their houses there was great confusion and I saw terror in many eyes

As houses collapsed around them and the earth shook again and huge gaps opened up and crowds of people were swallowed up

In was unable to move from where I was standing and unable to look away

Then I saw the face on someone I had known in my youth, but had put aside as a childish fantasy

“Why did you desert me, why have you turned away from me? His words pierced my heart

I fell to my knees “Forgive my Lord for being so foolish, I have no excuse to offer”

I trembled as I spoke, as distant memories flooded back into my mind not just mear stories of Jesus, but all those days I had experienced His Holly presence

  1. Thanks for your Story Graham but some will say Lord Lord but all in vain. The last day as confirmed in Scripture……

    Matthew 25 : 31 -45 When the Son of Man shall come in His glory and all the Holy Angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the Throne of His glory. And before Him shall be gathered all Nations and He shall separate them one from another as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. And He shall set the sheep on His right hand but the goats on the left.

    Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand; Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was an hungred and ye gave me meat, I was thirsty and ye gave me drink, I was a stranger and ye took me in. Naked, and ye clothed me, I was sick and ye visited me, I was in Prison and ye came unto me. Then shall the Righteous answer Him saying; Lord when saw we thee an hungred and fed thee? or thirsty and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger and took thee in? or naked and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick or in prison and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren ye have done it unto me.

    Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred and ye gave me no meat I was thirsty and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger and ye took me not in naked and ye clothed me not: sick and in prison and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him saying Lord when saw we thee an hungred or athirst or a stranger or naked, or sick or in prison and did not minister unto thee?Then shall he answer them saying; Verily I say unto you Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these ye did it not to me.And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the Righteous into life eternal.

    1 Thessalonians 5 :2 -6 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child and they shall not escape. But ye brethren are not in darkness that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light and the children of the day we are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep as do others but let us watch and be sober.

    Christian Love Always – Anne.

      • Jesus goes after the lost Sheep Graham so there is great Truth in what you wrote, some of those who are lost still walk in God’s Light, they Love and Care for others without seeking gain and God knows them as His own but they still have to come Home.

        Of course some others are Lukewarm, they have no real Love for God or others, it’s all words but this is different from loosing your way. I did in my early Teens because I was deceived that I came from an Ape and Jesus was just made up and so for 30 years I walked in darkness and than for more years I was an uniformed Christian yes a Baby but having asked for God’s Wisdom and empowering and believing I had received them, I finally came home. No I’m not Perfected in Love yet but Aiming for it as Jesus leads the way.

        God Bless you greatly Graham and please keep sharing from your Heart. Anne.
