Lex Marion, of Vancouver, and Connor Martz, of Waterloo, want to go to Mars. Nearly 7,000 Canadians and 165,000 from other countries have already agreed to join Mars One, aimed at establishing a permanent human colony on Mars by 2023. But everyone who goes will die there, because there is no way back. It reminds one that the next great event in the history of the world will take place when Christ fulfills His promise to gather all His children, both living and dead and take them to heaven. His words are: ”I will come again and receive you to Myself.” That is known as the Rapture. But unlike the proposed trip to Mars, there will be a return trip. Paul, referring to Jesus return to earth, after He has taken believers from earth, spoke of what he called “the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.” He’s bringing us back! If you and I belong to God because we are trusting Jesus alone for salvation, we can be sure that He will also bring us back to earth to live in His Kingdom.
