New Defender's Study Bible Notes
1:10 all them that believe. When Christ returns and calls His saints to meet Him in the air (both dead and living—I Thessalonians 4:16-17), He will “be admired in all them that believe,” not just those who are maintaining a certain standard of spirituality at the time of His coming. The rapture is not a partial rapture, but is effective for all believers, whether carnal or spiritual, living or dead. The evaluation of one’s life after individual regeneration will be settled at Christ’s judgment seat (II Corinthians 5:10).
