The Lord said to Moses, “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. On the first day of the appointed month in early autumn, you are to observe a day of complete rest. It will be an official day for holy assembly, a day commemorated with loud blasts of a trumpet. You must do no ordinary work on that day. Instead, you are to present special gifts to the Lord” (Leviticus 23:23-25)
I love my Chinese brothers and sisters in Christ. I look forward to when we are all together with our Lord.
I love to hear the people of God worshiping Him, and I want to hear it in every language. :)
Synopsis: “THE REMAINING is an action-packed supernatural thriller that addresses questions of life, love and belief against an apocalyptic backdrop. A group of close friends gather for a wedding, but the celebration is shattered by a series of cataclysmic events and enemies foretold by biblical end-times prophecies. The survivors face a horrifying, uncertain future as they scramble for safety, but as their world collapses around them in chaos and terror will they choose real life through faith, or just try to survive?”
I went to see this film today. It was very interesting (at first), and tells the story of a group of friends who are left behind after the Rapture occurs. It is a horror genre based film so it is quite intense (PG-13 rating). When I bought my ticket the person at the ticket booth asked me what it was about, so I had the opportunity to give her the synopsis. The ticket taker also asked me what it was about, and he said the theater had received no promotional material or information at all about the picture. He was an older gentleman and I thought it was neat that he used the older term for a movie when we were talking.
As a horror film I enjoyed it. As a supposedly Biblical film, it was not okay. For being a partial “found footage” type, the visually represented judgements were a nice visual even if I don’t necessarily agree with the timing. The director has stated that his interpretation of the Rapture is a spiritual catching away. I believe it is a spiritual and bodily catching away (Jesus and Paul make that very clear).

Can Christ return “any day” from Heaven?
How would Christ answer that question?
How would the apostle Paul answer that question?
How would the Old Testament Law answer that question? …
The seven holy days in the Law of Moses foreshadowed major events that pertain to the first and second coming of Christ and reveal God’s plan to save the “Earth” from Satan—which includes Christ’s return for his church. These holy days make known not only how God would rescue souls, but how God would defeat Satan on the battlefield—both in the spiritual realm and in the flesh and blood realm. The prophetic holy days disclose knowledge of God’s vision—especially as it concerns prophecy and our place in it.
