We Won't Miss It
Paul writes to the church at Thessalonica, who evidently had concerns about why some in their number were dying, about Christ's return. In what is the most concise and precise account in all the New Testament about last things, Paul gives details about what the Day of the Lord will be like. But whether we are alive, or "asleep", Paul says that those in Christ will not miss it. Yet in spite of the encouragement we should take from his message, Paul's words also seem to have as much to do with the "here and now" as they do with the "there and then". See what you think.
