I have written a few plays based on the Rapture but mostly from the same point of view. Someone always witnesses the disappearance of a loved one. From that perspective, it would be hard to continue doubting the Bible, but what about those who do not witness the actual disappearance?

The Bible clearly states that Jesus will come like a thief in the night. Based on that, I was inspired to write a story about a family who missed the rapture without even realizing it. In the midst of all the preparation we put into planning our perfect Christmas, it’s the last day we would expect Jesus to come, but what if He did come on that day?

This family wakes up on Christmas morning thinking that it’s just another normal day, but as the day progresses, the changes that have occurred become evident, and the truth long recorded in the Bible is even harder to ignore.
