Topic: Biblical Passage: 1 Thessalonians 4:13–18

Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects. - Will Rogers

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

1. Be Informed about Christians who have died

• Christians do grieve over the loss of loved ones

• Christians are Not to Grieve like those who have no hope

2. Be Informed about Jesus’ death and resurrection

3. Be Informed about The Coming of the Lord

Jesus brings Life and Order

• The return of Christ in the air
• The resurrection of the dead in Christ
• The rapture of living believers
• The reunion with those who have died

  4. Be Informed regarding the rapture of the Church
