THE RAPTURE

April 22, 2016

Friday

 

1 Thessalonians 5:9 

 

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

 

 

LESSON

 

First Thessalonians 5:9 is not a ‘both/and’ statement. The believer is not appointed to wrath and to salvation—to the Day of the Lord and the Rapture. The verse states ‘not one, but the other.’ The believer is appointed not to wrath, but to salvation; not to the Day of the Lord, but to the Rapture. The believer’s hope is the Rapture. We are not watching for wrath, but for the Lord.

When God vents his anger against earth dwellers, the body of Christ will be in heaven.

He did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through Jesus Christ who died for us, that whether dead or alive, we should live together with Him. Therefore we need to comfort and edify one another .
