1 Thessalonians 4:13- 18 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.
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall be forever with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
This text is a declaration statement concerning the second coming of Christ.
Let me make this clear, this is not a scare tactic message. It is one of truth from the Word of God and a reminder that you and I MUST believe to be true because God said it and it will happen.
Many people are living their lives as if earth is their final destination. They have declared to themselves “when I am dead, I am done” but this is not so. If this is your attitude, you WILL BE horrified when you transition from earth to eternity.
We ALL WILL live again either with God or apart from God in eternity. We decide!
One thing of a surety and that is the Word of God is true and every WORD spoken by God will come to pass.
Let’s listen to what God says concerning His Word in Isaiah 55:11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it .
Matthew 5:18 Heaven and earth may disappear. But I promise you that not even a period or comma will ever disappear from the Law. Everything written in it must happen.
Even if we lived to be 100 or 200 years old how will those years compare to eternity?
Earth is our place of preparation for eternity.
What are you doing in your life that is helping you prepare to one day meet Christ? Or, perhaps you may not be doing anything and if this describes you, i want you to know that this Word from God in this text will accomplish what God says it will, regardless if you chose to believe it or not!
There will be a second coming! The question is “will you be ready” when he does?
Having heard the truth, what will you do with it? Will you continue on in the way that you have been living or will you rethink the way you are living and adjust your life according.
Christ, God in the flesh, came to earth as “SAVIOR”, born as a baby in a manger in Bethlehem over 2k years ago. Christ lived, He died, He was buried, He resurrected from the dead and He ascended up to heaven where He is now seated at the right hand of God the Father.
The second coming of Christ will be for the gathering of ALL those that belongs to Him. If you are not prepared to meet Him you will be left behind for a period of time. Imagine a world where there are no more Christians. This is exactly how it will be after Christ second coming.
If you do not know Christ for the pardon of your sins, it is time to repent, turn from your wicked ways and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for the saving for you souls. Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
I am no one’s judge nor jury, just a deliverer of God’s Word to those who are willing to lend an ear to what the Spirit is saying in this hour.
IT IS TIME TO EXAMINE WHERE WE HAVE PLACED OUR FAITH AND OUR HOPE!
Today is the day of salvation! Now is the acceptable time!
The second coming! Are you ready? Are you making preparation?
