2. Where will Christians meet the Lord when He returns, on the earth or in the air?
1. The dead Christians (1Thess. 4:15--17). In verses 14 and 15, the ones who have died in Christ are described as being asleep in Jesus . Jesus described Lazarus after he had died as being asleep
2. In the air (1Thess. 4:17). This is the one place in Scripture that the rapture of the believer is taught.
