“15 For this we say unto you by the Word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the Trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
One day soon and very soon that trump is going to sound. Our loved ones who have gone before us to be with the Lord are going to rise up out of that grave as mortality meets immortality. Corruption will put on incorruption on that soon coming day when death is swallowed up in victory. Those of us who are alive and remain will be caught up with them is a glorious cloud of witnesses and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Our faith will become sight as we behold our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
“51 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” 1 Corinthians 15:51-55
Salvation is for whosoever will believe. Jesus Christ came to die on Calvary’s Cross to pay the penalty of sin for the believing sinner and break the power of sin for the believing Saint. He has gone before us and prepared a place for us. In His House there are many mansions.
“2 In My Father’s House are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.” 1 John 14:2-24
No one knows the day nor the hour but He’s coming back…and this might be the day.
