The Coming Of The Lord
1 Thessalonians 4:15 – 17 The Coming Of The Lord
The Lord is coming for all believers that are saved and in the Body of Christ.
These verses will give comfort to all believers that will read them.
4:17 Rapture (“caught up together”)
4:18 Renewing our minds
How? 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Ephesians 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
2 Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
All believers should want to renew their minds daily in the word of God. We should read, learn how to study, learn how to rightly divide the word of truth, and walk by faith in the position that we have in Christ.
As believers we should be:
Waiting – “And to wait for his Son from heaven,” – 1 Thessalonians 1:10
Looking for that blessed hope – Titus 2:13
Listening for the “shout” from the Lord Jesus Christ – 1 Thessalonians 4:16
Pressing toward the mark – Philippians 3:14
