Message of the Day: Christ’s Return, Our Hope

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.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13, NIV)

Among the Thessalonians, some were worried that those in their church who had died would not share in the return of Christ and the final triumph of his kingdom. Paul assures them that they will share in his return just as they share in his death and resurrection. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14)

Christ’s return is the great event that Christians hope for. The second coming of Christ is viewed as the climax and culmination of His redemptive work. It is considered by most to be a literal, bodily return of Christ as he gathers his church. We do not grieve for fellow Christians who have died, because we have hope – the resurrection!

  1. Yes as the first return happened three days after his death, wow, woe is me
    Yes Christ is alive and forever has forgiven all, to be received in beleif that does not quit, no matter what troubles come up. Can we last and not deny God, God says we can it is just a choice to make and stick with it as glued to it
    As enemies of God try their best to unseal us from God
    Guess what once in one is glued to him. sealed as in Eph1:13 tells us this, then seeing 6,7 verses Accepted and forgiven, but I just sinned again and did not want to, but I did.
    What to do? Trust God to see you through, since nothing can separate us\
    romans 8 tells us this,
    Thank you God I can now enter Psalms 100:4 for you have TAKEN CARE OF IT psalms 103:12

    sO START WALKING NEW IN TRUST IT IS DONE FOR YOU
    By God himself in Son for us Col. 1:21-23 continue even if you still have or do sin, you will learn to trust to the point not to, God leading instead of you
