God's plan involves people being raised from the grave

The Bible assures us that some people will be raised from the grave and given endless life when Christ returns to the earth:

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. .

1 Thessalonians 4 v 16

God plans to fill the earth with those who respect Him

We can be involved in this peaceful worldwide kingdom on earth:

Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

Revelation 20 v 6

We can help in solving our world's problems.

    • has given us a message that we can rely on
