XV The Rapture and I Thessalonians

Published on

Here's the other of Paul's two quintessential Rapture/Resurrection passages. Add your knowledge of this passage to familiarity with I Corinthians 15. Now the student of biblical prophecy can gather clues as to the 'when' and 'how' of these events and take this combination portrait into other prophecy passages with good results. With both passages firmly grasped, students of biblical prophecy can properly integrate our hope of eternal life into the routine of our daily lives.

    8. 8. I THESSALONIANS 4 THE PROBLEM: Even with all Paul’s teaching, this church might be confused about what has happened to those among their number who have died. 13. But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep . . .
    9. 9. I THESSALONIANS 4 THE ISSUE: The Thessalonians grieve like those who have no hope. 13. But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep that you may not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.
    10. 10. I THESSALONIANS 4 THE SOLUTION: Belief in Christ’s own resurrection guarantees us that He has the power to bring their dead with Him when He returns. 14. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.
    11. 11. I THESSALONIANS 4 THE PROOF OF GOD’S CONCERN FOR THE DEAD: The resurrected rise to join the descending Christ even before the living rise to meet their Lord! 15. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord shall not precede those who have fallen asleep.
    12. 12. I THESSALONIANS 4 THE RETURN Described: A noisy, rousing descent . . . (Again with the trumpets, already! I Cor 15:52) 16. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God.
    13. 13. I THESSALONIANS 4 THE RETURN Described in Detail See! The dead have had and will have Christ’s full attention and care!! 16. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ will rise first!!!
    14. 14. I THESSALONIANS 4 THE FOLLOWUP: Glorious Reunification A rousing declaration of the unity of the Body of Christ and of our eternal communion with our Lord Jesus. 17 Then we who are alive shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be with the Lord.
    15. 15. I THESSALONIANS 4 EVERYDAY APPLICATION #1: While you wait, find comfort amidst the distress of personal loss or persecution. 18. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

    17. 17. I THESSALONIANS 5 A REMINDER: of Paul’s earlier teaching! The nature of Christ’s return: Like a thief in the night. Sudden n prise? Sur ess? 1-2. Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you for you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.
    18. 18. FLASHBACK!!!!!!!! To from where Paul’s imagery originally came . . . .
    19. 19. MATTHEW 24 Earlier, in His Olivet Discourse, Jesus had told the disciples (and us, too?) that we would know the SEASON of His return (but not the precise time!) and that “YOU” should be looking for signs that would alert “YOU” to the arrival of that season. 32. “Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. 33. So, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door.
    20. 20. MATTHEW 24 Next, Jesus introduced the metaphor of the thief and the householder here in Matthew 24-in His famous Olivet Discourse at the end of His ministry. Jesus treated Satan as “the head of the house”, Himself as the thief! Curious imagery, no? 42: Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 43: But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night that the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.
    21. 21. I THESSALONIANS 5 3. While they are saying “Peace and THE SURPRISED: safety” then destruction will come upon Sinners and the unsaved them suddenly like will have a huge shock birth pangs upon a coming at Christ’s return as a thief. woman with child and they shall not escape.
    22. 22. I THESSALONIANS 5 THE ALERT: The “BRETHREN” however will not be totally surprised by the day of Christ’s coming (though they won’t know the precise hour!) 4. But you,brethren, are not in darkness, that the day should overtake you like a thief. 5. for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness.
    23. 23. FLASHBACK!!!!!!!! Jesus at Olivet told the brethren to be alert, too . . . .
    24. 24. MATTHEW 24 Jesus cautions “YOU” to stay on the alert because the hour of return remains a secret. 44: For this reason you be ready too, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will. The Parable of the Faithful Servant then follows to spell out what being “ALERT” looks like: Feeding the household of the Master. 45: Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time?
