The Bible gives us a clear picture of how this all happens. It will be in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye. The Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. I imagine blinking my eye & that is how fast we will be with Jesus in heaven with our new glorified bodies. I this is the year we go home. I know God has his perfect day when that will happen. He is giving people more time to repent. Come Quickly, Lord Jesus!
