I Thessalonians 4:15-17
I Thessalonians 5:23
II Thessalonians 2:2-3
No, the day of the Christ is not at hand yet because “that man of sin…the son of perdition” has not yet been revealed. All Christians will be raptured at this day, however, and so I Thessalonians 5:23 makes perfect sense even for those Christians who have died before it occurs. Since now one knows when Jesus will return, Paul speaks in I Thessalonians 4:15-17 as though he could be among those who are alive (which is why he uses the word “we”), but he knew that he may die before this day comes.
