Rebecca, Mark, Cindy, Carmen, Brenda, Margaret and your families, you are each and all in my heart and prayers with love.
What words of comfort can we render in this difficult time if not God's very own promise of our Hope of Eternal Life as we wait for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together unto him? Yes we will be gathered one and all to meet him in the air for the greatest Family Reunion of all times...God's family reunion in the heavenlies. Oh what a day that will be...wherefore comfort one another with these words
I Thessalonians 4: 13-18
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent (preceed) them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
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.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
