It is striking to note that the earliest revelation concerning our own happy expectation was given to saints who were sorrowing for loved ones (1 Thess.4:18). And to this day one will not find more comforting words for the bereaved believer than in Paul’s message concerning those who were put to repose. Here we have the balm needed for our wounded feelings when a beloved believer is put to repose. The subjects covered in this booklet include: How the dead are roused; The expectation of His calling; Who shall go through the Great Tribulation; What is the Trumpet of God; and Who will be snatched away. Besides providing much practical teaching, this study clearly demonstrates that the “rapture”—the time when we are snatched away to meet the Lord in the air—is a distinct event from, and surely an antecedent to, Christ’s appearance on the Mount of Olives. An excellent study.
