Message Points

“Jesus is Coming Again”
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Hebrews 12:2-3

Five Promises that Bring Comfort:

We have God’s Word (1 Thessalonians 4:13, 1 Thessalonians 4:15a)

  • We have the great opportunity to look to Jesus and His Word for complete revelation and hope concerning life after death (2 Timothy 1:10; John 14:1-3)
  • We don’t need to fear death or the future because Jesus conquered death (I Corinthians 15:57-58)

Jesus is Coming Again (1 Thessalonians 4:14-15)

  • “Imminent return of Christ” Christ could come at any moment (1 Corinthians 15:52)
  • Whether we live or die, as believers in Christ, we have nothing to fear because Jesus will come, either with us or for us.

Christians Who are Dead Will Rise (1 Thessalonians 4:15-16)

  • Believers will receive glorified bodies. The grave is not the end (Philippians 3:20-21) 
  • When Christ returns in the air, He calls those who are saved through faith in Him

Living Believers will be Caught Up (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

  • Rapture is a Latin term. It means to be caught up, to seize, to carry off.
  • Christ will return for His own.

We Can Encourage Each Other (1 Thessalonians 4:18)

  • A reunion is coming. We will be caught up with all the believers who have gone before
  • In Heaven:

            No Loneliness (Revelation 21:3)                             

            No Tears (Revelation 21:4)

            No Aging (Revelation 21:5)

            No Fear (Revelation 21:25)             

Application: Jesus was victorious over death!  He is coming again! We have a hope and can live our lives for Christ.
