His Coming for the Saints Pastor Denis Lyle explains the mystery of the blessed hope, the greatest comfort after salvation, the rapture of the church, and the second coming of Jesus Christ, what Satan does not want doubting souls to believe: Maranatha, the Lord is coming, for His saints, and His return is imminent, "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump" (1 Cor. 15:52).
"(16) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (17) Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. (18) Wherefore comfort one another with these words" (1 Thess. 4:16-18).
Truly, the mystery of the blessed hope, the greatest comfort after salvation, the rapture of the church, and the second coming of Jesus Christ are for the saved and born again believers in the Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, His saints.
As sheep of the good shepherd, we rest assured in these precious truths and promises.
May the gravity of these precious truths and promises precipitate a renewed fervency in the church and greater exploits for the cause of Christ, for the days are evil and the time is short.
