PREACHED ON EASTER-DAY.
THE RESURRECTION OF THE JUST.
1 Thess. iv. 13-18.
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, con-
cerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even
as others which have no hope. For if we believe that
Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep
in Jesus will God bring with Him. 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. 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. Then we which are alive and remain shall be
caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the
Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 332
