Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him” (1 Thessalonians 4:14).

This faith should rule our lives today. How will the Rapture take place? What will happen? Paul says, “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air” (1 Thessalonians 4:17). Just imagine that quite practically! From all four corners of the earth people will be raptured, in the same direction: toward Jesus, who is coming in the clouds of heaven! “And so shall we ever be with the Lord” (verse 17). The Rapture will start with Him. He is the source of the power.  He ignores death. We will be changed because we are in Him and will hasten toward Him. The center of the Rapture will be the risen Lord and Him alone! Is your life ruled and filled by Jesus alone? Can you testify with Paul that you are consciously dying to yourself so that life is manifested in you? Are you able to be transformed? Paul forms it like this in his letter to the Corinthians, “Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body” (2 Corinthians 4:10).
