A Promise of Hope!
The trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
2 Corinthians 15:52, niv
What will it be like on that day when we hear the clarion call of the archangel’s trumpet? Quicker than you or I can blink an eye, believers will feel their feet lifting up off the ground, we will be aware of certain changes taking place in our bodies that will enable us to physically live in eternity, and we will look up—into the face of Jesus! We will be swept into the clouds of His glory! And if we can drag our eyes away from His beautiful face, we will see that Jesus is surrounded by our loved ones who had trusted Him by faith and who had been raised from the dead!
Jesus Christ is coming! He is coming! On any day, at any moment, “in the twinkling of an eye . . . at an hour when you do not expect him . . . he who is coming will come and will not delay” (1 Cor. 15:52; Luke 12:40; Heb. 10:37). Now that’s a promise that gives us HOPE!
