The Voice of an Archangel

Todays_Scripture_Verse“For the Lord Jesus Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first…” – 1 THESSALONIANS 4:16

When the Lord Jesus descends from heaven at His second coming, all the righteous dead in Christ will hear His voice and be resurrected. Second, all true believers which are still alive at that moment will undergo an instant transformation. This is called “The Rapture” of the church. Our earthly bodies will be supernaturally changed into glorified spiritual bodies, and all will go to meet Jesus in the clouds as He descends from heaven.

The trumpet of God and the voice of an archangel will also be heard. I believe it will be the archangel Gabriel, since Gabriel seems to have a special position in heaven as God’s herald. Unlike the archangel Michael – the warrior angel, Gabriel was the one who appeared to the virgin Mary and announced the birth of Jesus (Luke 1:26-35).
