Waking those Spiritually Asleep and Waking Believers’ Dead Bodies!

Passage: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11
Service Type:

Sleep is used as a metaphor in the bible for 2 things: spiritual sleep (being unaware of the spiritual realities around us) and death (the body sleeping in the 'cemetery' = sleeping place). People need woken up from spiritual sleep. Jesus will wake His people's bodies up from the sleep of death to be reunited with their spirits and share in the reawakening of the cosmos in new creation.
