If you watch the news you will find there is indeed a lot of fear that is being instilled on its viewer because of this pandemic! The media continues to share with us all the negative data rather than the positive data!
Today we join Pastor David Crespo as he shares with us the positive data that we are missing out on so that we can be more aware of what’s really going on!
As Christians there is no reason to let the fear of the media get to us! But we do need to be cautious, and we do need to be aware! We also need to be prepared! Because brothers and sisters… we are in the end times! Jesus Christ is coming soon! And those who are prepared and ready for His return, will be part of “The Rapture” which is, the heart of this message today! Let’s listen in as we ask the question “How much longer?”
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 New King James Version
The Comfort of Christ’s Coming
13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen [a]asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who [b]sleep in Jesus.
15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are [c]asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
a. 1 Thessalonians 4:13 Died
b. 1 Thessalonians 4:14 Or through Jesus sleep
c. 1 Thessalonians 4:15 Dead
