We Will See Our Loved Ones Again


1 Thessalonians 4:14: “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.”


If we believe that Jesus died and rose again: There are many who do not believe God’s word and therefore they don’t believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus. The scriptures say that He died for us, He died for our sins, He died for all. “Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification” (Romans 4:25). If we believe the scriptures then we have to believe this.

Even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him: Those that sleep are those that have died. Those that are Christians have become new creatures in Christ Jesus and when we die we are still in Christ Jesus. As we said yesterday when a Christian dies their soul departs the body and is present with the Lord. Jesus said, “I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:3). When He comes to receive us unto Himself, He will bring those souls (Christians) with Him.

This is part of why we should not sorrow for them as others do which have no hope: We may have to go through this life without those loved ones but their life has not ended and we will see them again.
