Finding Comfort in the Resurrection – Reuniting at the Rapture (1 Thes 4:13-18)

Saturday, April 5th, 2014

One of the most comforting passages in all of the Bible for those that believe in Jesus is 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18:

But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. 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 by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 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 thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

Within this passage, Paul presents, two goals, three groups, two promises, a timeline for Jesus’ return as described here (the rapture), and one command that we are to carry out.
