For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout.
1 Thessalonians 4:16

In her book Not Good if Detached, Corrie ten Boom told of a woman reading her Bible one morning and studying the Rapture of the Church in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. As the passage came alive to her, she became caught up in its truths and didn't hear the doorbell. After a while, it registered and she went to the door to find an impatient milkman. You must be getting deaf, madam, I had to ring three times.
I'm sorry she said,"It is not that I am deaf, but I have just read something in my Bible so glorious I forgot everything else. So you know that it is possible that some day you may come to my door and I will o longer be here? Also you may find every Christian some empty. I've just read that when Jesus comes again we shall meet Him in the air. We shall be suddenly changed, and then we shall see Him face to face."
We have a glorious future, and the Bible fuels our optimism by giving us more verses about our Lord's return than we can count. e gives us strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow. Great is His faithfulness.
If you accept Jesus as your Savior, you, too, will become a child of the Most High God and be among those who will meet Him in the air.

Please join me in praying for the victim's families who lost loved ones and ones that were injured in the massacre and in hospital. Hate crimes are something all the world has to deal with The Jewish Synagogue or any church should be a safe place to worship. Thank you for joining me in prayer. God bless.

    My friend phoned me last evening and we talked about the news lately. It is so sad that people cannot go and worship or go to the grocery store without being gunned down. Children were hit by a car while getting off a school bus and a mother has been implicated in the disappearance of her daughter.

    On Facebook the mother of 8 children lost her husband to a gun shot in Cameroon where he was a missionary. What a hope there is in Jesus, that those that die physically in Him, live on.

    My heart goes out to those families of the victims; it was a senseless tragedy. We should be reaching out to each other in love, not hate. Great lesson!

    I join you all in prayer for the families of those lost and the full recovery of those in the hospital... it is incomprehensible that anyone could be so filled with hate as to take another's life... but then, Jesus said that if they hated Him, they would hate us also.
