February SOAP: Last Things: The Rapture of the Church
1. SCRIPTURES: 1 Thess 4:13-18
- The Lord Jesus will come again for those who are in Christ, He will gather to Him
- Those who are not in Christ have no hope
- We as believers are told to keep encouraging each other with this reality as we await His return
- The Lord's redemptive work in us has begun!
- He justified us (spared from the penalty of sin)
- He sanctifies us (freed from the powered of sin)
- He will bring us into glorification (removed from the environment of sin into perfection)
- Lord, I look to the day of perfection where You will call me unto You. Amen!
- May people be awakened by the reality that You are serious with what You say
