Sometimes we have to be encouraged. Remembering that the Son of the living God lived as we are in the world. Lived for thirty-three years in subjection to the laws of sin and death. Died and rose again and now is in heaven preparing a place for us. So that where He is we might be there too. There is a place in heaven with our names on it.
By the word of the Lord, we declare to you that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who have fallen asleep.
There is no consciousness of time when we sleep. One night or thousands of years is obviously unknown to us. With a stretch of the imagination it’s already a done deal going through the motions of human life. When Jesus reappears in the air the living and the dead in Christ will be as though this present Earth and every thing in it never existed. So hold in faith trusting in Jesus who is able to save to the outmost. Always making intercession to God for us who are justified by faith in the works of Christ.
Have a good night sleep tight and don’t let the bed Bugs bite. Tomorrow is another day.
