1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

“But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words. ”

And that is why, on this day especially, we have hope. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Death is conquered, those who have gone before us, will go before us again … and we will be caught up TOGETHER. Today probably even more than I have ever felt it in my life … Because Christ has conquered, I will see Ereling again. Because Christ has conquered death, and he arose, Ereling will rise again … to be with CHrist, how glorious!!! 🙂

REJOICE for it is GOOD NEWS!!! 🙂 🙂
