Those Who Are Sleeping

1 Thessalonians 4:13 But we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning those who are sleeping, that you would not grieve even as also the rest who have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose, so also those who have fallen asleep through Jesus, God will bring with Him.

 

 

John 11:11   He said these things, and after this He said to them, Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going that I may wake him out of sleep.

12 The disciples then said to Him, Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover.

13 But Jesus had spoken about his death, but they thought that He was speaking about taking rest in sleep.

14 So Jesus then told them plainly, Lazarus has died.

 

 

Those who are “sleeping” as pointed out in the verses above, refer to the believers of the Lord who have died.  But the Lord did not say that were dead, he said that they were sleeping.  Meaning that they will be awakened by the Lord at his coming back and will be raised from the dead.  The Lord said the same thing concerning Lazarus.  He referred to Him as one who has fallen asleep.  All of the dead believers will rise first when the Lord Jesus comes back (1Thes. 4:15).

The Salvation of Israel: At the Lord’s Return

Revelation 1:7  Behold, He comes with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the land will mourn over Him. Yes, amen.

Matthew 24:30 And at that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the land will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

John 19:34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water.

John 19:37 And again another Scripture says, “They shall look on Him whom they pierced.”

*Additional scriptural references  Psalm 22:16

When the Lord returns to the earth the second time the bible reveals that all the tribes of the land will mourn over him.  And even those who pierced him will see Him.  Those who pierced him and the tribes of the land undoubtedly refer to the Jews.  After the war of Armageddon the Lord Jesus will come back to the earth and at such time all of Israel will mourn over him, repent and believe into Christ.  More to come on this subject.  Stay tuned!

The Lord’s Second Coming: The Coming of the Son of Man

Matthew 24:27 For just as the lightning comes forth from the east and shines to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.

28 Wherever the corpse is, there will the vultures be gathered together.

29 And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

30 And at that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the land will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

 

The Lord Jesus came to us in his incarnation the first time (John 1:14).  However he will come again a second time to the earth!  The traditional concept is that we go to heaven.  But the bible is emphatic concerning God coming to the earth, a second time.  This is spoken of in Matthew 24:27-30 which is the open coming of the Lord to the earth after the great tribulation during which he will be manifested for all to see.  And concerning the Lord’s second coming there are two aspects.  Open and secret coming.  The aspect of the secret coming will be the topic of another post.

I love these verses!  It says the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the land will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  WOW! What a wonderful sight that will be!  All the tribes refer to the jews in the holy land who will repent and turn to the Lord which will be discussed in another post as well.

 

COME LORD JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
