“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16 Amplified
Well it’s been quite a while since we haven’t had a 3:16 verse in one of the books of the Bible. What an awesome verse though that 4:16 is and so I wanted to share it.
For believers this verse is the going home day, the trip we’ve been waiting for. Our Lord will return to get us and take us home, after that there is no aging, pains, tears, mourning, agony – well, nothing negative. What a glorious day!!!
In verse 5:1 it says we don’t need to know the day or the hour, just be ready. If you’re ready, then you need to make sure those around you are ready. With all the troubling times in our world today we have the opportunity every day to speak to someone about Jesus coming back. Ask them if they’d like to live where there’s no bad news or sadness. If they say yes, then tell them how to get there. It’s really easy, just tell them about the choice you made.
