……comfort one another with these words.” (1 The 4-13,18)
Listening to the heartfelt lyrics of this amazing song from Kathie Lee Gifford of were a great reminder of our blessed hope in joining with Christ in the last trumpet! What a touching song! What an ultimate truth! Only those who have experienced the true love of God in their life can sing this boldly “He saw Jesus”
Loosing someone on the death and the pain, the grief, the feelings of helplessness can be unbearable! In all such times we have the unchangeable Word of God as our comfort, informing us, that “we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve, as do the rest who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. 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, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep. 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 shall rise first. 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 shall we always be with the Lord. Therefore, comfort one another with these words.” (1 The 4-13,18)
As the author and the finisher of our faith, who holds the keys of death and of Hades encourages us to get comfort each other on this blessed hope of seeing Jesus on His arrival or joining with Him through our physical death if He tarry! By the resurrection of Christ our confidence grows and our fear is cast down as David consoles himself on the death of his child and Kathie Lee Honors Late Husband with this powerful revelation that “He saw Jesus and we too will return to meet Him ..Amen!
I know …I will go to him, but he will not return to me(2 Sam 12:23)
