1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18

Our speaker during Family Bible Hour was Mr Jim Stevenson; pictured with his wife, Kristen, and his cute children. It is always a pleasure to have the whole family visit our congregation.
Mr Stevenson's message was based on 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18, and other passages:
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
 The above passage was written by the Apostle Paul to comfort believers who have had loved ones pass away. Mr Stevenson touched on various subjects, including the rapture, the return of Christ, the anti-christ, the tribulation, and the 1000-year reign of Christ. Pray that people would have an attitude of a love for the Truth; otherwise they will be lost for eternity because of strong delusions and lies.  Mr Stevenson's message, in full and in context, is available on DVD. Please see Romy.
