Are you ready? Are you ready for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ?
Our bodies, which will not last forever, will be transformed by the hands of God the Father, and we will be given new bodies that will last forever.
~”But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.”~1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, ESV~
The angels will sound the trumpet. Those who are children of God will hear the sound of the trumpet. Those who have passed away in Christ will rise and be given new bodies in Christ. They will be given perfect bodies.
Those who are children of God and alive still on the earth will be given new bodies too after hearing the trumpet. They will be given perfect bodies.
These perfect bodies will not only just be perfect bodies; they will be bodies like Jesus. In these perfect bodies, we will no longer cry, suffer, feel pain, angry, or other imperfect emotions because we will be just as Christ is in these perfect bodies.
As followers of Jesus, we have a reason to rejoice in the Lord for this day. Since we will be like Christ, we will have no reason to look back or behind at the past that is behind us. The earth will be old. Heaven will be a new place for all followers of Jesus to dwell. All old things will pass away and new things will have come!
~”Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”~2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV~
All followers of Jesus will embrace the new and they will embrace Christ Jesus just as He is: with His nail-pierced hands and nail-pierced feet. Jesus died for all so that we could have the chance to get eternal life in Christ Jesus. Eternal life is our portion. Amen!
Do you believe in Jesus? Do you want this eternal life that I speak of to you? If so, pray this short prayer:
I know that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. I confess my sins to You as I put my trust in Jesus to lead me for the rest of the days of my life. Come into my heart as my Lord and Savior and lead me and guide me for the rest of my days.
In Jesus’ name,
**If you just prayed this short prayer, then you will be going to Heaven with Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Eternity and eternal life are your portion today and you can continue to walk in this truth today and share it with your loved ones!
