1 Thessalonians 4:13-15-But I would not have you ignorant, brothers, concerning those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and arose again, so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will not precede those who are asleep.
Concerned about your parents, children, family members, loved ones or friends who have died in Christ?
In this text, God offers the believers hope concerning our loved ones who died in Christ before us and those who will be dead when Christ returns at His 2nd coming.
People of God no need for concern, fear nor worry about our loved one who die in Christ nor ourselves if we die in Christ before the rapture for God makes us a promise on today that should cause us to rejoice as we now travel this journey on earth with Him.
Today hope and comfort are being offered to those who have been “born again”, redeemed by the blood of Christ. Our future is secure in Christ Jesus throughout eternity with God.
All who have put their faith in God through a personal relationship with Christ Jesus and God’s atoning work on their behalf at the cross has nothing to fear nor worry about concerning ourselves or our loved ones who have died in the Lord.
Isaiah 26:19-But those who die in the Lord will live; their bodies will rise again!
Those who sleep in the earth will rise up and sing for joy! For your life-giving light will fall like dew on your people in the place of the dead!
If you are living your life to please God through a personal relationship with Christ by faith and not your flesh, you can rest assured of your eternal future with God and enjoy the journey with Jesus now and in eternity for there is “HOPE” now and in eternity for the believer.
