TEXT - 1 Th 4:13KJV But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. {14} For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. {15} For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. {16} For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: {17} Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. {18} Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

INTRO: THERE ARE TIMES AND SEASONS OF LIFE THAT CAUSE US PAIN & distress. It is in these times that we need a source of comfort. God is concerned about your fears. He knows that you are but flesh. There are things that cause us to fear, sickness, death, divorce, lack of employment, the loss of relationships. The surmounting evidence of an approaching Tribulation scares us. Any or all of these things could give a person a nervous break down. In fact Jesus warned that the time would come,

Luke 21:26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

God seeks to comfort us in all of our trials. When speaking of the Tribulation, we are comforted with words concerning the Rapture. Whatever you are facing God can and will comfort you.

I. THE NEED TO BE COMFORTED IS A COMMON NEED.

A. You, at some time in your life, are going to come to the place that you will face something that will cause you to fear. Sooner or later, something will wound you deeply and you will need to be comforted. If you have not experienced this yet, you just have not lived long enough.

B. Paul experienced the need to be comforted - 2 Cor 1:3-9 KJV Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; {4}Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. {5}For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. {6}And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. {7}And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation. {8}For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: {9}But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:
