This series of messages is a study of what the Scriptures teach about God’s future for the Church, the Body of Christ, that God is building in this present dispensation of Grace.

These Bible messages were given by Pastor Gregg Bing during the morning worship services at Grace Bible Church in Fort Worth, Texas in 2021.

Our Hope - the Rapture - 2

God\'s Future for the Church

We begin a study of 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, which describes the hope of the Church of this age. We examine the background of this letter, including Paul's 1st visit to Thessalonica (Acts 17:1-15), as well as Paul's purpose in writing this letter to these new believers in Christ. We will also be looking at the nature of death and why it is referred to as sleep.

Scripture References: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Acts 17:1-15

From Series: "God's Future for the Church"

What does God have planned for the future of the Church, the Body of Christ? What can we, as believers, expect to happen in the coming days? As we look at what is happening in the world around us, we might think our future is not very promising. In this series of messages, we take a Scriptural and dispensation look at our blessed hope--the Rapture of the Church and at the judgment believers will one day face at the Judgment Seat of Christ, being careful to note the differences between our future and that of the nation of Israel.
