The Coming Of The Lord

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.  14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.  15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.  16 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:  17 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.  18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.  (I Thessalonians 4:13-18) 

What a beautiful passage of scripture.  Paul says comfort one another with these words.  It is simply that Jesus Christ is coming back one day to take us home with him.  Loved ones who have accepted Christ will be risen from the dead first and those that are alive shall be caught up in the clouds with them.  We will meet Jesus in the sky.  We will be on our way to that new home.  There we shall forever live with Jesus.  Know this for a surety.  Jesus is coming back.  When we know that this current life is not the final chapter, it helps us to stand firm and be committed to the work of the Master.
