1 Corinthians 1:18 (NIV)
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."

This was a reminder from the Apostle Paul to the Corinthian church that for those who did not understand the message of salvation it seemed like something crazy or foolish. Many of the Jewish of the time were looking for an earthly king that would bring about a peaceful life here on earth. What they missed is God had a better plan and that was to live eternity in the comforts of heaven with Him.

I was reminded of this verse as I watched a TV show last night and the commentator said, �There are crazy people who believe in this rapture nonsense.� He went on to say that even beyond the claims of a rapture, which was supposedly to take place this past Saturday, on May 21th, there were still people who believe in �the rapture nonsense�. Sorry, but I happen to be one of those people believe in the rapture because it is written in the Bible. Jesus told us there would be a rapture, but Jesus also said no man would know the day or time of the event. When the Israelites were in the wilderness and committed serious sin against God, God sent poisonous snakes upon the people. Moses was told to place and image of the snake upon a pole and those who looked upon the image would live if bitten, but those who refused would die. It doesn�t seem to make sense, look at a snake on a pole and live, but that was the solution God gave. God has given us answers to many of our problems, yet we fail to listen. And God have given us a solution to Salvation through Jesus Christ that by His Death on the cross and through His resurrection if we have faith and believe then we too can be saved. I pray you have that faith and I ask you pray for those who you know still think salvation is foolishness.
