I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
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 believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead. He is alive, and He has the keys of death and Hell.
Since Jesus is alive forever and ever, I will see Him some day descending from heaven with a shout, with the voice of a mighty angel, and with the trumpet of God. I will see those who are dead, who believed in Christ, rise from their graves! I will be caught up with them in the clouds, to meet Jesus in the air!
I will be with the Lord forever more!
Today, I found so much comfort in these words. I hope you do too!
Thank You, God! What you have done is so amazing! That Jesus has died for my sins, and rose again, and is interceding on my behalf is so merciful of You. That I will one day be caught up into the air to be with Jesus is a total comfort to me. I pray that Your will would be done on earth as it is in Heaven. I pray for all Christians, that they would strengthen their love for You. I pray that we would not be deceived. Come Lord Jesus! Amen.
