    Where in the Book of Revelation does it describe the dead in Christ will be caught up to be with Jesus first, before the living believers?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

    Are you telling this old man, the Book of Revelation fails to mention the dead in Christ are resurrected to meet Jesus in the clouds first?

    Yet not in the Book of Revelation. Is this your claim?

    Revelation 20:5-6 The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.

    Different matter.. I was looking for the account of when the dead believers in Jesus Christ were caught up to be with Jesus in the clouds in the Book of Revelation.

    It's either there in the Book of Revelation, or it's not.

    As if I haven't. Young whippersnappers have been caught unaware.

    It's not in the book of Revelation ... it is in Thessalonians

    1 Thessalonians 4:17
    Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.

    perhaps kindred ...

    Revelation 11:12
    And the witnesses heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Come up here." And they went up to heaven in a cloud as their enemies watched them.

    hi In Revelation the church is certainly present in Ch 2 and 3. The church is not mentioned again in the book. Chapter 4 n 5 show John hearing a voice to come up here and he was in the spirit in heaven. There a great multitude worship the lamb who was worthy to take the scroll and open the seals and the proclaim worthy is the Lamb to take the scroll and open the seals for He has redeemed us by his blood out of every tribe tongue kindred and nation and we shall rule with him upon the earth. This is also a promise made to those martyred in the tribuation that they too shall reign with HIm upon the earth. This is coming and so too will the LORD reign and those mentioned will reign with HIm.

    I'm not making a claim, just pointing out something.
