1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 (NKJV) 9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.
This is a wonderful truth. God has not appointed us to the day of wrath which is the Tribulation period. The Tribulation is a time of God’s wrath, and we who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ are not meant for God’s wrath. For “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36 NKJV). “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit” (Romans 8:1 NKJV). “Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him” (Romans 5:9 NKJV). If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are not going through the Tribulation because Jesus bore your judgment on the cross at Calvary. God saved us by His grace, and when Christ returns to take His church out of this world, all who belong to Him by faith will be called up to meet Him in mid-air because of the grace of God. God has not destined us for His wrath, but for salvation through His Son Jesus Christ. Whether we die before Christ’s return or whether we are still living when He returns, we all shall live together with Jesus for all eternity. Thank God, that He has made a way for us to be by His side for all eternity by His grace. This is a wonderful truth. So, “Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing” (1 Thessalonians 5:11 NKJV).
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
