1st and 2nd Thessalonians Bible Study
Perspective: Gaining a proper perspective of God, ourselves, and the world in which we live.
On March 7, 2014, Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 disappeared from radar in flight and never was seen again. In 2018, the investigation of its disappearance ended with no one really knowing what happened to the plane with its passengers and crew. Many people are grieving the loss of their family and friends.
The mysterious disappearance reminded me of the movie, “Left Behind.” That movie depicts the time when Jesus will return to collect all believing Christians from the earth and take them to heaven with Him. In the movie, the plane remained in flight with just some of its passengers missing—leaving behind clothing and jewelry and other earthly things. When that happens, will there be an intense investigation into what caused the people to vanish similar to what happened regarding the missing flight full of people?
Jesus declared in Mark 13 that He was definitely, positively, you-can-count-on-it-with-certainty coming back to earth to gather all of His followers across the planet. He will gather them to Himself in the clouds. There’s no mistake about it.
If Jesus said that was going to happen, it will! After all, He promised to His followers that He would be raised from the dead after being crucified. That happened. God keeps promises.
