“The Awaited Announcement!”

Key Verse

“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:” 1 Thessalonians 4:16

Text — 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18


Some announcements come as good news when they bring hope, joy and happiness; while some others come as sad news, bringing anxiety, worry and fear. People usually stay tuned to their radios, televisions and other social media platforms to listen to important announcements, especially when the timing is known with certainty.

The most important announcement that the world is waiting for is about the second coming of our Saviour and Lord Jesus to the earth. When He was ascending to heaven after His resurrection, He declared that He would return for His followers. The fact of Jesus’ second coming is heartwarming and cheerful for believers, but also a terrible news for unrepentant sinners. No one knows when Jesus will return, but God has graciously provided us with clues about signs of His soon return. The Bible mentions signs such as rumours of war, wars, terrible diseases, and natural disasters, to name a few. Wise believers can read the signs and know that the arch angel will soon sound the trumpet and Jesus Christ will appear in the sky any moment from now. Get prepared and be ready at all times to be with Jesus when He returns.
