Jesus opens graves
The dead in Christ will arise
Because Jesus saves.
The Comfort of Christ’s Coming
13 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. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
15 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. 16 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. 17 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. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17
What a time that will be. This is when we will be reunited with our loved ones who passed on before us. The graves will open up and the ones who died knowing Christ will now emerge from their graves. They go up first and then we go up and meet up with them in the clouds. Jesus stays on the clouds without His feet touching the earth at this time.
I would like to hear your thoughts on the return of Jesus.
