In Rev. jesus states he will be like a theif in the night. Why does he say this? Will it be him?
Yes, He says He will come like a thief in the night because we do not know of the hour or of that day when it will be.
We all know that death will come upon us all.....there is no way out of this!
quote///"For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
For when they say, ''Peace and safety!'' then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman.
And they shall not escape" (1 Thes. 5:1-6).
It is said, so that we are ready to face death, both in body and soul.
Perhaps the ressurection of the dead happened yesterday, how would we know, they would all have been taken someplace other than earth.
The Resurrection of the dead has not yet happened.
This will happen at the end of the world........there will be a resurrection of the dead.........Judgement day....
quote///"Do not marvel at this: for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice (of the Son of God) and come forth;
those who have done good,
to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil,
to the resurrection of condemnation" (John 5:29).
For as in Adam all die,
even so in Christ all shall be made alive" (1 Cor. 15:13-22).
Death condemned by Jesus Christ.
