Caught Up

"

Caught Up 13 while we wait for the blessed hopeΓÇöthe appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, Titus 2:13 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. Titus 2:14 15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you. Titus 2:15 27 Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, Hebrews 9:27 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. Hebrews 9:28 15 According to the LordΓÇÖs word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 1 Thessalonians 4:15 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:18 51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changedΓÇö 1 Corinthians 15:51 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 1 Corinthians 15:53 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: ΓÇ£Death has been swallowed up in victory.ΓÇ¥ 1 Corinthians 15:54 1. When is He coming back? 36 ΓÇ£But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Matthew 24:36 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:37 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; Matthew 24:38 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:39 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Matthew 24:40 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. Matthew 24:41 42 ΓÇ£Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. Matthew 24:42 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. Matthew 24:43 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. Matthew 24:44 1 Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 1 Thessalonians 5:1 2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 3 While people are saying, ΓÇ£Peace and safety,ΓÇ¥ destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 2. How is He coming back? 1 ΓÇ£Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1 2 My FatherΓÇÖs house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? John 14:2 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.ΓÇ¥ John 14:4 3. Why is He coming back? 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:7 21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Acts 2:21 36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.ΓÇ¥ Luke 21:36 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17
