“Have hope: Jesus is coming!”
“Death is the great separator, but Jesus Christ is the great reconciler. In Heaven we will be reunited with friends and loved ones. Husbands will be reunited with wives, and wives will be reunited with husbands. Children will be reunited with parents, and parents will be reunited with children. It will be like a big family reunion. It will be a perfect reunion as we’re joined together around the throne of God.
If you’re a Christian, you could be going about your business one day and suddenly find yourself in Heaven, reunited with loved ones, face to face with Jesus. The Bible says the rapture of the church will happen in “the twinkling of an eye.” (see 1 Corinthians 15:52) —Pastor Greg Laurie; WND News.
- Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, John 5:28
- 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. 1 Corinthians 15:52
- 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: 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
“If the Lord Jesus Christ were to come to-day I should like Him to find me at my studying, praying, or preaching. Would you not like Him to find you in your Sunday-school, in your class, or out there at the corner of the street, preaching, or doing whatever you have the privilege of doing in His name? Would you meet your Lord in idleness?”—Rev. Charles H. Spurgeon; 1834-1892.
