<103> Thesis: The 'Rapture' of Living Saints Will Complete Their 'Hope'. Introduction: In our studies of Paul's explanation of what is to come for us, we have seen that we are to be emotionally stabilized in the face of significant loss by the words of the Lord. In those words we have seen that our future includes the resurrection of those who have been put to sleep by Jesus and then some sort of resurrection-like event for those who are yet living when the time comes. Those yet living are twice called "the ones left over" and twice we are told that those who have been put to sleep have a distinct advantage over those who have been left over. This evening we are going to look into the final event, which most people who are aware of it call "The Rapture".
