Memorizing wonderfully 73: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 Sleepers with hope


13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have NO hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus Christ  will GOD bring with HIM.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the Trump of GOD: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in clouds, [Multitude-host] to meet the Lord in the air: [Aerial/Plains] and so shall we EVER be WITH the Lord.

18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.


To remember

Isa 13:4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, as of a great people! the noise of a tumult of the kingdoms of the nations gathered together! Jehovah of hosts is mustering the host for the battle.

Jer 25:30  Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, Jehovah will roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he will mightily roar against his {1 } fold; he will give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth. {1) Or pasture }

Jer 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

Joe 1:15 Alas for the day! for the day of Jehovah is at hand, and as destruction from {1 } the Almighty shall it come. {1) Heb Shaddai }

Joe 2:11 And Jehovah uttereth his voice before his army; for his camp is very great; for he is strong that executeth his word; for the day of Jehovah is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

Joe 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of Jehovah cometh.

Joe 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! for the day of Jehovah is near in the valley of decision.

Joe 3:16 And Jehovah will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but Jehovah will be a refuge unto his people, and a stronghold to the children of Israel.

Zep 1:14-15  14  The great day of Jehovah is near, it is near and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of Jehovah; the mighty man crieth there bitterly. 15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

Mal 3:2 But who can abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fuller’s soap:

Mt 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then shall he render unto every man according to his {1 } deeds. {1) Gr doing }

Mt 24:31 And he shall send forth his angels {1 } with {2 } a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. {1) Many ancient authorities read with a great trumpet, and they shall gather etc 2) Or a trumpet of great sound }

Mt 26:64  Jesus said unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Henceforth ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.

Mr 14:62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.

Da 7:13 I saw in the night-visions, and, behold, there came with the clouds of heaven one like unto a son of man, and he came even to the ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Eph 2:3 among whom we also all once lived in the lust of our flesh, doing the desires of the flesh and of the {1 } mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest:— {1) Gr thoughts }

Eph 2:12 that ye were at that time separate from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

Joh 11:11 These things spake he: and after this he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus is fallen asleep; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

Joh 14:3  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I come again, and will receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Joh 12:26  If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will the Father honor.

Joh 14:18  I will not leave you {1 } desolate: I come unto you. {1) Or orphans }

Joh 14:28  Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I.

Joh 17:24  Father, {1 } I desire that they also whom thou hast given me be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. {1) Gr that which thou hast given me, I desire that where I am, they also may be with me, that etc }

Ac 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know times or seasons, which the Father hath {1 } set within His own authority. {1) Or appointed by }

Ac 7:60  And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

Ro 14:9 For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.

1Co 4:9 For, I think, God hath set forth us the apostles last of all, as men doomed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, {1 } both to angels and men. {1) Or and to angels, and to men }

1Co 15:23 But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; then they that are Christ’s, at his {1 } coming. {1) Gr presence }

1Co 15:18 Then they also that are fallen asleep in Christ have perished.

1Co 15:19 (ASV) {1 } If we have only hoped in Christ in this life, we are of all men most pitiable. {1) Or If in this life only we have hoped in Christ etc }

1Co 15:52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

2Co 12:1  {1 } I must needs glory, though it is not expedient; but I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. {1) Some ancient authorities read Now to glory is not expedient, but I will come etc }

2Co 4:14 knowing that he that raised up {1 } the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also with Jesus, and shall present us with you. {1) Some ancient authorities omit the Lord }

Ga 1:12 For neither did I receive it from {1 } man, nor was I taught it, but it came to me through revelation of Jesus Christ. {1) Or a man }

Php 1:23 But I am in a strait betwixt the two, having the desire to depart and be with Christ; for it is very far better:

1Th 1:10 and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, who delivereth us from the wrath to come.

1Th 2:19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of glorying? Are not even ye, before our Lord Jesus at his {1 } coming? {1) Gr presence; Compare 2 Co 10:10 }

1Th 3:11  Now may {1 } our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus, direct our way unto you: {1) Or God himself and our Father }

1Th 5:6  so then let us not sleep, as do the rest, but let us watch and be sober.

1Th 5:10 who died for us, that, whether we {1 } wake or sleep, we should live together with him. {1) Or watch }

2Th 1:7 and to you that are afflicted rest with us, at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with the angels of his power in flaming fire,

2Th 2:1  Now we beseech you, brethren, {1 } touching the {2 } coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together unto him; {1) Gr in behalf of 2) Gr presence }

2Ti 3:12 Yea, and all that would live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

Re 3:21 He that overcometh, I will give to him to sit down with me in my throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father in his throne.

Re 6:17 for the great day of their wrath is come; and who is able to stand?

Re 14:13  And I heard the voice from heaven saying, Write, Blessed are the dead who die {1 } in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; for their works follow with them. {1) Or in the Lord. From henceforth, yea, saith the Spirit }

Re 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as {1 } worshipped not the beast, neither his image, and received not the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand; and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years. {1) See marginal note on Re 3:9 }
