THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Ever wonder about those people who spend $2.00 apiece on those little bottles of Evian water?
Try spelling Evian backwards:
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 suppose, when you have bad water at home, purchasing water to drink is not really naive.
Trying to earn, or attain heaven is naïve.
And, believing “we’re ALL gonna get there someday,” is certainly naïve!
The only way to receive heaven is to surrender to Jesus as Lord and Savior!
Heaven is that tremendous reward for yielding oneself to Christ and becoming His servant on this earth.
One day, believers will see Jesus in the atmosphere.
They'll hear the "shout" from His lips calling believers to join him in the clouds!
The "trump of God" is symbolic of the trumpet used in the Old Testament to call believers to the temple for worship.
One day, that "trump" will sound, and believers will see Jesus in the clouds.
At that time, believers will be called to worship Jesus in Heaven FOREVER!
The key to seeing and being a part of this event is to be "in Christ."
Those who have died "in Christ" will rise to meet Him first.
Those who are "alive" and "remain" in Christ will rise to meet Him next.
This is a comforting thought to those who are "in Christ!"
For believers, there will be a day when God will allow us to defy gravity!
Then we will be purged from all sin and changed to the full likeness of our Lord and Savior (1Corinthians 13:12).
What a great day we have to look forward to!
Let’s stop looking for signs, and start listening for the sound!
And, until Jesus calls us home, let us be faithful servants, telling others of His wonderful grace!
Be not deceived (or naïve); God is not mocked:
for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
