If Trump does not win in 2020

Whenever it happens, I'll be there with Cheesecake to greet you all. If you don't like cheesecake, I may bring carrot cake. My biggest question on the rapture is this; Will I have abs in my new body? I want abs. Can you imagine being able to eat whatever you want and still look good? That is the most underrated part of our new glorified bodies. Since there will be no sin in Heaven, I'm thinking I won't get to swim in my cheesecake pool, but maybe it's not a sin if it doesn't hurt you?

Great post Adrian. I was a believer for many years a generation was 40 years. Each time the Rapture didn't happen, like 1988, it was pushed out a bit. As others noted here, there is a difference between a generation and a life-span. I'm still holding out hope the rapture happens soon and I'll meet you all in the air. The way things are going, it could very well be today, or soon.
I don't suppose anyone here is a gamer who loves the game Portal? There was cake at the end of that one too....;P (Which actually has a real life counterpart it was inspired on).

It is unthinkable. I think the only way Trump would lose is if the left hijacks everything: the government, the military, the police.

I keep thinking of Revelation 3:10 where God says He will rescue believers out of the tribulation. It seems the verse is telling us that something will happen that will cause God to snatch us out of harm's way. Something along the lines of the Global Left, not just in America, gathering their resources and coordinating closlty to put the entire world under their control.

Have been thinking if trump won would it mean the rapture delayed, for instance if trump won then that's it till 2024 so maybe also means rapture can't happen and tribulation happening for 2028 as per Israel being born 1948 and the generation being 70 to 80 yrs. Know what I mean.

Trump winning or loosing has no bearing on the timing of the rapture happening... Only the last gentile getting saved, and the Lord's keeping the count. Trump could win and the rapture happen on election day if it's the Lord's will. As we know, until it happens the rapture is and always will be imminent.

Without God's intervention I don't believe Trump will win. The dems were caught off-guard in 2016. They thought they had it in the bag. They will NOT be caught off-guard again. There are too many ways they can and will cheat, now more than ever. This is why we MUST be in prayer and ask God to destroy every evil and hateful plot.

That's how you'll know it's me. I'm not a communist cake eater, but so I'll have other options available. I can hear Jesus scolding me already..... "You have to share the cheesecake...."

Candles are an excellent idea too. I'm not certain how the wind works up there, but I'm presuming a candle will be ok. :)

This brings to mind, every year I would bake an Italian Cream Cake for Jesus' birthday and the grand kids got a big kick out of singing happy birthday to Him and then we cut the cake. They also like that at Grandnana's we sometimes eat dessert first when the parents aren't around to scold me. My defense is: the rapture is imminent, after all.

But there are times when generation is used poetically to refer to a class of people demarked by something other than age.
Whenever 2 or more are discussing just how long that generation is, I don't throw in my two cents because I figure it could even be "the generation that is the church age" which would fit with the description above quoted. If that were the case, and I certainly don't know that it is, then there would be no time limit for "this generation".

That’s a really interesting perspective! I’m going to ponder on that one a bit. Thank you for sharing it!

There are some that believe that. My difficulty with that interpretation is that Jesus was speaking in the context of the end and included the resurrection of the nation of Israel. This would have eliminated the almost 2,000 years of the Church Age which preceded 1948. I rather think that the meaning of "generation" refers somehow just to the period following the budding of the fig tree ... which is what began the "last days" of this age.

Whether Trump wins or not, the Lord is still in control of everything. Unfortunately, the left will most likely get a candidate in sooner or later ( I think everyone would prefer it be much later!), and probably end up running this country under the ground. They are practically drooling to get their socialist system in so they can have what they want at a moment's whim.

But we look for a heavenly country...one not built by human hands, but by the Word of God. Our riches aren't here, but in heaven where the Lord Jesus is. And unless the Lord tarries, we will be there with Him soon as well.

The days of our lives are seventy years; And if by reason of strength they are eighty years, Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; For it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

What a lovely thing to do with your "littles" I am going to do that with mine starting this year!

Right, Kenny: that is a lifespan. But a lifespan is not necessarily a generation. Further, in Matthew 24:34 the word genea does not necessarily refer to a generation as we view the term; it can refer to a group of people, a class of people, or even an age. And that's why the problem of interpreting the meaning of the verse comes in. As a consequence, while the Rapture is definitely imminent and could occur at any split second, it does NOT necessarily HAVE to occur by May 2021.

That said, it WILL occur ... and soon. We ARE in the last days of this Age! :yeah

In reality, with dead people voting, illegals voting multiple times and being bused from state to state, electronic machines being rigged, AND indoctrinated youth flooding the voting booths, the ONLY way Trump will win a second term is if it’s God’s will - just like this current term.

In that is where I find my peace. And that assuming there even IS another election in 2020.

:pray :rapture:rapture:rapture
That's why they created the transgender category; they create political blocks for votes. Kind of like parasites colonizing a body.
