Second Coming




1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, When will the righteous dead be raised to life?

The next text is very interesting:

God is going to be taking the those who died in Jesus with Him.

In verse 14, it clearly says that When He raises the righteous dead, He will take them with Him!

God will bring those who sleep with Him. So God is going to take the saints somewhere with Him.

Some people interpret verse 14 to say that God will take those who have already died to the earth when He picks up the living saints who are still living on the earth. This is what they believe the phrase "will God bring with him" says. But this cannot be its meaning

Notice in verse 14, it says that it those who "having slept through" that Jesus will bring with Him. It is those who have been sleeping in the grave that Jesus will raise up.

Also, in verse 16 we see that those who are sleeping, they are raised up when Jesus comes: "and the dead in Christ will rise again firstly"

Jesus cannot be taking the dead from heaven back to the earth because they have been sleeping through the whole time until Jesus comes again. Then when Jesus comes the dead are actually raised up when the Lord Himself gives a command. Then He will take them all back to heaven to be with Him.
