Call in to speak with the host
Scripture: 1Thessalonians 4:14-18 Commentary by Holly Hearon
What they describe in 4:13-18 presumably instilled new hope in the Thessalonians. For us, however, it may simply sound strange. What are we to make of this apocalyptic scenario in which Christ descends from the clouds with a cry of command, and the sound of a trumpet, and lifts the faithful up into heaven? Are we required to take this at face value as a description of what is to come?
It's good to talk.
