Life After Death

10 Then we who are alive

10 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. Therefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18). From this we see that the resurrection from the dead is the real hope, “lest you sorrow as others” (verse 13). Furthermore, Paul makes it clear that Christians who live to the second coming of Christ will go to heaven “together with” the resurrected righteous. They will “by no means precede those who are asleep” (verse 15). And those who have died will not reach heaven before those who live to see Christ come. “God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us” (Hebrews 11:40). Paul will receive his reward at Christ’s coming (2 Timothy 4:8). Even one thousand years after David’s death, Peter declared that the patriarch was not yet in heaven (Acts 2:29, 34). Paul goes so far as to say that if the dead do not rise, then those who have died believing in Christ are perished, and that is the end of it all Life After Death Text.indd 10 5/26/11 1:26 PM

11 (1 Corinthians 15:16-18). Thank God, the dead shall rise. The Hope of Both Old and New Testaments Not only does the New Testament set forth this resurrection hope, but the Old Testament does also. In fact, Job answers his own question, “If a man dies, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14). Follow his thoughts: “All the days of my hard service I will wait, till my change comes” (verse 14). Where would he wait? “If I wait for the grave as my house” (Job 17:13). When would the “change” come? “You shall call, and I will answer You; You shall desire the work of Your hands” (Job 14:15). Yes, this is as Jesus put it, “All who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth” (John 5:28, 29). What would be the nature of the change? For one thing, there would be an actual, bodily resurrection. Said Job, “For I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God” (Job 19:25, 26). The apostle Paul adds this: “We shall not all sleep [die], but we shall all be changed—in Life After Death Text.indd 11 5/26/11 1:26 PM
