He shouldn't bother with the under-duress procrastinating crowd. If they didn't initiate it on their own without all the warning signs then to hell with them.

But now that we're discussing it, I have a few questions about Premillennial Dispensationalists:
1. Even though the first second coming will be in secret, it seems that it will become apparent after a half dozen or so of the signs are fulfilled. That will give those who are still awake some warning to get right. As more signs are fulfilled, won't it become increasingly obvious to everyone what is about to happen?
2. I wonder what they say will happen to those who die after the first second coming (when the dead are raised) and the second second coming. Will Christ make a clean-up pass through the cemetery to pick up those in-betweeners?
Why visit cemeteries again? Don't you folks think the virtuous believers are in heaven already? What's the transfer latency for souls? And likewise the denying sinners aren't there either. So who is stuck in the ground with their decaying remains? Also it's questionable what he expects to rapturize. It can only be the remains of the recently dead and for what purpose? They can't be there either. The rest aren't pretty. Most are actually gone. If the ground is acidic even the bones are gone after a shorter period too. Plus in many places in the world they turn over the plots after some period of time. Then there is the cremated and those bulky jars. They've been rapturized. Those buried at sea. Boy is Osama going to be shocked. His remains are probably gone already. What exactly is he searching for? It seems like biz as usual should prevail. If you're alive and worthy then he has you and if you're dead the usual thing happens.
If it's a question of finding a body I'm sure that he can construct another one. That prospect ought to please the Christian LGBT crowd.
