Comfort Comes by Believing in the Rapture of the Saints
Comfort Comes by Believing in the Rapture of the Saints
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Speaker's Picture
Sunday School,  February 24, 2013

Paul wrote to comfort the Thessalonians by sharing with them the revelation God had given him. Those in Christ who died would not be at a disadvantage when Jesus came for His saints. At the rapture, the dead in Christ would rise first and then those alive would be caught up together with them in the clouds. Believing this truth offered them the comfort they needed so they would not sorrow as those with no hope. This is God's word to us today.
