Occupation

One of the more troubling things about the rapture as it has been taught in many evangelical churches over the past 30-40 years is that we now have a generation that not only expects, but practically demands that it happen in their lifetime. It’s a weird kind of entitlement mindset.

Not unlike the Hebrews as they wandered through the wilderness on their way to the Promised Land. They were so frustrated that God did not immediately deposit them into paradise after rescuing them from bondage that most of them never got where they were supposed to go.

Jesus said to occupy until He comes.

oc·cu·py:
1. To fill up time or space
2. To seize possession of and maintain control over by or as if by conquest.

Which will it be?
