With a Loud Command

 

 

I knew my friend’s father was sick–very sick.

Many people were praying for him.

He died today in the hospital.

His family is hurting because they miss him.

I understand.

For those that know Christ as their Savior, death is not the end.

It is a beginning.

 

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.  For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.  According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.  For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.  After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.  Therefore encourage one another with these words.

—I Thessalonians 4:13-18

    Fifty years ago, I believe, there were more folks around who had a pretty good idea of what God approved of and what He didn’t.
