Discussion for 1 Thessalonians 4

  • A disciple
    "For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord..." Whether by word of knowledge and understanding of the Scriptures, or by word of prophecy and revelation; these things Paul often spoke about, and it was a fundamental part of the Doctrine of the Lord. Accuracy is absolutely important, as it is the truth revealed by God's Spirit about the things coming. No part of the truth is left for guessing.
  • Joshua
    If there was a 7 year tribulation period, then people in the tribulation period would know when Yeshua/Jesus will return. Christ Himself tells us that no man knows the day nor the hour of His coming, not even the angels of Heaven, but Our Heavenly father (Matthew 24:36).

    Thanks Everett, for your research on 'rapture'; the Lord wants us 'to study' to shew ourselves approved - OF GOD.
  • Matt
    There is NO rapture, period. You will not even find it in scripture. As Paul stated, there is no way to prevent (precede) the dead, because they are with The Lord. All souls return to The Father (Ecc. ch. 12; 2nd Cor. ch. 5) until the great white throne judgment. At the trib. of the antichrist, The Holy Spirit will speak through His election (Rev. ch. 11) then the Real Christ returns: 7th trump.

    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.
