Parousia of Jesus in Thessalonica

In his first letter to the Thessalonians, the Apostle Paul wrote to reassure the congregation about the participation of fellow saints who died before the Parousia in the glories of that day. BOTH dead and living saints will assemble to " meet " Jesus. In doing so, he provided one of his more detailed descriptions of the “ coming ” of Jesus. On that day, dead Christians will be resurrected and, together with those still alive, will meet Jesus as he descends from heaven. - [ Photo by Michael Kroul on Unsplash ].

Servant of Yahweh

“I will give him a portion among the great because he poured out his soul unto death, and with transgressors let himself be numbered”  –  Isaiah 53:12 .  Unlike Adam, the “ Servant of Yahweh ” did not attempt to grasp the “ likeness of God .” Instead, he humbled himself and chose obedience, even if it meant a horrific and shameful death.  For this reason , God highly exalted him and made him “ Lord ” over all things. Exaltation did not precede his death - it followed it - [ Photo by  L.Filipe C.Sousa  on Unsplash ].
