Well, it could happen.... Stop and think for a minute, if you knew that the rapture was going to happen tomorrow; you had one more day left on this earth. How differently would you live that day?

Maybe you would try and ask forgiveness from the ones that you have hurt, you know, make sure your slate is clean before you face Jesus.Maybe you would spend that day with your family.Maybe you would call that unsaved friend that you have been meaning to witness too, and try to get them saved. I am sure that each of you would have your own priorities that you would want to take care of. I know for me, I would call in sick to work that day. :) Then ask forgiveness for lying.
We all get so wrapped up in our own worlds, and our problems and troubles, that it is hard to imagine that the rapture really could happen tomorrow. Seriously, it could happen tomorrow. If it did happen, is your heart in the right place to see Jesus?
I know it is hard, but we need to live our life like the rapture is going to happen the next day. Now, I am not saying to call in sick to work, or spend all your money. But, I believe that we need to prioritize our life, make your family more important than your work. Be quick to forgive. Don't be afraid to witness to that friend of yours. Start to read your Bible a little each day. I am sure that the Holy Spirit is laying things on your heart that He would like to see you do.
Oh, By the way..... if the rapture does happen tomorrow..... I am so excited to meet all of you. Let's meet at the feet of Jesus...... Ahhhhhhh :)
Chapter 24 is known as "The Olivet Discourse" Part 1. Next to Revelation this passage has more information on end times. Put yourself in the disciple's shoes. imagine Jesus telling them this, what would be your reaction? I would guess that the disciples thought that Jesus would return in their time. They; like us, might have thought, yes there are wars, famine, and earthquakes. Jesus will came back very soon after He leaves.

Do You Dance With Jesus?
Matthew 24:4-8, 36, 42-44
"And Jesus answered them, "See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains."
"But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only."
"Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect."
