13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep (died), lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep (died) in Jesus.15 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 will by no means precede those who are asleep (dead). 16 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 will rise first. 17 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. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 NKJV
Are YOU ready? Ready to leave this corrupt and sin-filled world? Ready to live forever in Paradise with the Lord? Living forever is NOT an option – only where we will live forever is!! We can live forever in the torment of hell because we rejected God and His Son Jesus whom He sent to save us. Or, we can live forever in a paradise beyond our limited imagination by simply surrendering our life to Him.
If you haven’t already given your life over to Jesus but you know that you’re a sinner and you want to get right with God it’s very easy – Pray this prayer
“Heavenly Father in the name of the Lord Jesus I ask you to forgive me of all of my sin. Prepare my life for the soon coming of Jesus Christ. From this day forward I pledge to serve You with all of my heart, mind, soul and body. Thank you God. Thank you Lord Jesus! Amen”
If you realized that you are a sinner and you prayed that prayer and have asked Jesus into your heart you are saved. Nothing else is required except that you grow in the knowledge (relationship) of Jesus. Ask Him to fill you with His spirit and strengthen you to walk with Him. This salvation is not about your feelings or intellect. It’s spiritual and more real than your feelings or understanding can express. Rejoice in this moment and be glad that your are now a child of God.
