The Coming of the Lord
1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11
13 I would not, brethren, have you ignorant concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus is dead, and is risen, even so them which sleep in Jesus, will God bring with him.
15 For this say we unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which live, and are remaining in the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them which sleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, and with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first;
17 Then shall we which live and remain, be caught up with them also in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore, comfort yourselves one another with these words.
5:1 But of the times and seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For ye yourselves know perfectly, that the day of the Lord shall come, even as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety, then shall come upon them sudden destruction, as the travail upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day shall come on you, as it were a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day; we are not of the night, neither of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep as do others, but let us watch and be sober.
7 For they that sleep, sleep in the night, and they that be drunken, are drunken in the night.
8 But let us which are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and of the hope of salvation for a helmet.
9 For God hath not appointed us unto wrath, but to obtain salvation by the means of our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 Which died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
11 Wherefore exhort one another, and edify one another, even as ye do.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
