Great Encouragement

Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, 
but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the 
twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the 
trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised 
imperishable, and we shall be changed.
I Corinthians 15:51,52

When scripture speaks of a mystery, it means that
God has kept it hidden in previous ages, but now
is made known. Paul outdoes himself in revealing
the mystery in this chapter:

If in this life only we have hope in christ, we are all 
men most miserable...
For as in Adam all die, 
even so in Christ all shall be made alive...
As we have been born the image of the man of dust, 
we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man...
The sting of death is sin and the strength of sin is the 
law. But thanks be to God, who gives us  the victory 
through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Reader, we have victory in Christ in this life, and eternal
victory through Christ and what He has done for us. The
very next event on the prophetic clock is the "Catching
away of the Saints," also called "The Rapture." Last even-
ing Glen and I watched a You Tube video which gave us
much joy and great expectation of the nearness of our
Lord's coming. If you are watching the news and have be-
come anxious about outcomes, take a few minutes and
watch the interview of this old saint, David Reagan, and
be greatly encouraged.

For the Lord will descend from heaven with a shout, 
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet 
of God. And the dead will 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 we
shall always be with the Lord.
Therefore, comfort one another with these words!!!
