Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists
- Indiana church
This passage tells me that at Jesus’ second coming, our Lord will awake the righteous dead, and, together with the righteous living, take them up to heaven with Him. This culminating moment will not be a quiet one. It will be extremely loud, with angels shouting and blasting their trumpets. All in heaven and on earth will hear and know that Jesus reigns on high!
This is our assurance that no tribulation, trial, burden, temptation or power we experience on earth can separate us from the everlasting love of God.
