Song of the Week - #26 - "We Will Be Caught Up"
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 "For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words."
These verses and others that describe the second coming of Jesus played a big part in me coming to Christ when I was 11 years old. I had a frightening dream in which I was left behind and shortly thereafter I gave my life to the Lord. Verse 18 tells us to encourage each other with these words so I thought, what better way for me to encourage than with a song? I hope the truth of God’s word and the joyful celebration of this tune blesses you with wonder, comfort, and hope as we anticipate our Lord’s return.
