1Thessalonians, Chapter Four, Lesson Three

COMFORTING BEHAVIOR           Page 6
V. 18 (Cont'd.)

** What events in human history must take place before the Rapture of the church can happen?

Nothing! The stage is set, the next major event in the history of man is the Rapture! We need to be faithful and ready for when our gracious Lord comes to take us with Him to heaven.

EXTRICATE

** How does understanding this passage help prepare you to display "Comforting Behavior" toward your fellow Christians?

It should encourage my own heart with the reality that Jesus Christ is in control and is coming for me. I can now comfort others with this same wonderful news.

DELINEATE

** What error did the Thessalonians make in verse 13, which we need to avoid at all costs?

They grieved as those who have no hope, not understanding Christ's provision of the Rapture for His beloved Church. cf. 2Corinthians 5:6-8

EVALUATE

** How can I specifically use what we have learned together today?

Share it with others -

1. Edify my fellow Christians.
2. Witness to the lost.

ACTIVATE

** We need to live our lives this next week in the light of Christ's imminent return for His church. Sharing with others and obeying our Master by honoring Him with our "Comforting Behavior".
