1 Thessalonians and the Rapture
In adult Bible class this past Sunday I learned an interesting observation. Every chapter of 1 Thessalonians ends, either in the last sentence or last paragraph, with a statement about the Rapture.
Here are the passages in the Holman Christian Standard Bible:
1: 10: …and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.
2:19: For who is our hope, or joy, or crown of boasting in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming?
3:13: May He make your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints. Amen.
4:17: Then we who are still alive 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.
5:23b: And may your spirit, soul and body be kept sound and blameless for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Just thought I’d share this!
