One of these days Jesus Christ is coming back to take His Church out of this world. This is referred to as the rapture of the Church or the coming of the Lord. We Must be born again to go with Jesus when He comes to take us away! We must be ready to go when He comes!
If we've been born again, this is our awaiting hope. What a forever hope we have!
- 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 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 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.
- Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. (see also: Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 15:51-58 & Titus 2:11-12)
