"Who do you say I am?"

– Jesus Christ

Jesus, also known as Jesus Christ, was born in Bethlehem, a small Jewish town, around 6-4 BCE. When he was about 30 years of age, he began publicly teaching about the Kingdom of God, performing many miraculous signs. He gave sight to the blind and raised the dead back to life. Jesus also claimed to be God. Some people find this claim very contentious!

Who is Jesus?

Could Jesus really be God?

The great English writer C. S. Lewis says in his book, Mere Christianity:

“You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon, or you can fall at his feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that option open to us. He did not intend to.”

Not only did Jesus claim to be God, but he also claimed to be the only way to God:

“Jesus told him [Thomas], “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
John 14:6 (NLT)

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.  Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.
Romans 3:23-26 (NLT)

The Resurrection and the Rapture

Observation:

What will happen to believers in Christ when the Lord returns?

Deeper Reflection
AT “THE COMING OF THE LORD”, THERE WILL BE BELIEVERS who have already died and those who are still “alive” (v.15). Two things will happen to believers according to a divine order. First, “the dead in Christ will rise first” (v.16). For those who are “alive”, they will not experience resurrection from death, but instead they “will be caught up…in the clouds” – the rapture – and catch up with the resurrected dead, so that “together with them” they will “meet the Lord in the air” (v.17). What will happen to our bodies when all these happen at Christ’s return? Christ “will transform our lowly body to be like His glorious body” (Phil 3:20-21). Christ will return “with the sound of the trumpet of God” (v.16). Then, “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet”, “we shall all be changed” and “put on the imperishable” body and “immortality” (1 Cor 15:51-53). This glorious transformation of our bodies is founded on the resurrection of Christ.We seem to be concerned with how we die. We wish that we will die peacefully in our sleep into God’s presence. Christians died in diverse ways. Godly people died of cancer. In the Promised Land filled with God’s blessings (Deut 7:12-15), one could be killed by “the head of an axe that slips from the handle” from someone cutting down a tree nearby (Deut 19:5). God’s people can die through accidents. What is more important is, while “our outer man is decaying, our inner man is being renewed day by day” (2 Cor 4:16-18).
Application:

What do the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the rapture of living believers at Christ’s Second Coming mean to me personally?

Prayer:
Write a prayer to God as your response from your meditation on and application of the Scriptures.
Prayer Pointers:
  • Give thanks and praise
  • Pray for leaders
  • Pray for significant people
  • Pray for the Nations: To find hope in Christ’s Second Coming in this evil world
