Example text

When we get caught up to glory, we’re going through enemy territory, but we can count on our Commander-in-Chief to lead the way safely and rather dramatically. That’s why it’s significant that He Himself will descend, and He will shout (1 Thess. 4:16). Taking us to heaven is too important to the Lord Jesus to assign this task to one of His angel-lieutenants. These passages don’t deal with Christ’s final return. This is not Jesus T coming to establish His kingdom on the earth. This passage is very different from Revelation 19, when Jesus comes again.

Fortunately, this apostasy, this deliberate turning away, is discussed elsewhere in Scripture (see, for example, 1 Tim. 4:1; 2 Tim. 3:1–9,4:3–4 and 2 Pet. 2:1–22). The second development leading to the day of the Lord, wrote Paul, is when “the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction” (2 Thess. 2:3). Now, who is this man of sin? He’s a leader on the world stage. He makes a covenant with Israel at the beginning of the seventieth week of Daniel (Dan. 9:27). And when he gets to the middle of that time three-and-a-half years later, he breaks that covenant.

He’s been through enemy territory before. Remember, Satan is the prince of the power of the air (see Eph. 2:2). When we get caught up to glory, we’re going through enemy territory, but we can count on our Commander-in-Chief to lead the way safely and rather dramatically. That’s why it’s significant that He Himself will descend, and He will shout (1 Thess. 4:16). Taking us to heaven is too important to the Lord Jesus to assign this task to one of His angel-lieutenants. These passages don’t deal with Christ’s final return.
