People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 4:13


1Th 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren. It seems that the Thessalonian brethren, expecting the speedy coming of the Lord, mourned over some of their number who had died, counting it a great loss that they did not live to meet Jesus. Concerning them who are asleep. What we call death is only falling asleep in the arms of our Lord.

    "Prohecies" of man abound today. We must be VERY careful about speaking or receiving words attributed to our God. It's such a serious matter, Deut. 18 said false prophets were to be put to death.

    1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. "This prophecy is sent by commandment of God Almighty. Read and retain for reproof, instruction and your salvation. The following events mark world descent into spiritual damnation, or hell: the Syrian President will visit the United States for what appears to be a diplomacy visit. During the visit, the US will experience large-scale blackouts, particularly in the northeast, coastal and metro areas. Soon after, during the blackouts, the LORD JESUS CHRIST will save the faithful, children, teens, the destitute and others from around the world. Immediately proceeding this event, US coastal cities and military bases, beginning with NY, will fall under nuclear attack from Russia, China and others. Cities will lay desolate with the remaining people devastated and the world in chaos. Anarchy, famine, enslavement and horrible deaths will ensue. Repent and ask JESUS to save you from this hell. Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."

    David, verse 13 on applies to the righteous whom the LORD JESUS our Saviour corrected. He will Resurrect and Save His corrected as the world descends into descends into wrath, or hell. The wrath will correct the children of disobedience who refuse correction to this day. ALL perish in the wrath. Be blessed with love and truth in Christ. Amen. 1 Peter 4:18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Ecclesiasticus 51:12 For thou savedst me from destruction, and deliveredst me from the evil time: therefore will I give thanks, and praise thee, and bless they name, O Lord.
