2 Thessalonians 1:5

2 Thessalonians 1:5

The Thessalonian believers had been fed some false information from a bogus letter, which they mistakenly thought was from Paul.

They feared that they were in the middle of the great tribulation!

These dear saints of God had to come to an understanding that read more...

2 Thessalonians 1:7

2 Thessalonians 1:7

Faith and patience, in the face of trials and tribulation, were two qualities of the Thessalonian believers. Those that are persecuted for righteousness sake are blessed in the eye of Jesus.

2 Thessalonians 1:9

2 Thessalonians 1:9

We read in Hebrews that it is a terrible and terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God, but from start to finish, the Bible informs us of the singular way to avoid this horrible and horrifying happening - and it's by faith.. He who believes in Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe, is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

2 Thessalonians 2:1

2 Thessalonians 2:1

In his 2nd letter to the Thessalonians, Paul was addressing Christians, who were facing severe persecution and pressure. He was writing to correct a misunderstanding, which was causing them to think that the day of the Lord.. when the wrath of God is poured out on a sinful world, had begun!! Paul was writing to allay the fear.. that they had somehow missed the resurrection of the dead, and the gathering together of Christ's Church-age saints to Himself - i.e. read more...

2 Thessalonians 2:3

2 Thessalonians 2:3

Over the past decades, the apostasy in Christendom has exploded dramatically, as the Word of God is distorted, in thousands of ways.. and the Word of truth is fragmented into a multiplicity of heretical teachings and demonic doctrines - in order to cause division in the Body, and to deceive, if possible, even the elect of God.. and those that are well-grounded in the faith.

A direct assault on Jesus Christ and the Christian faith, read more...

2 Thessalonians 2:13

2 Thessalonians 2:13

As in so many of his epistles Paul contrasts the way of the wicked, who reject God's gracious gift of salvation and the final devastating outcome of their choice.. with those who have accepted His call to trust in Christ's sacrificial death and glorious resurrection. And in this passage Paul give a précis of the past, present and future glories of those that are saved by the blood of the Lamb, and the wonders that await them.

Paul often prayed for the comfort, encouragement, establishment and strengthening of the Body of Christ, which is the Church... and in this great prayer we find Paul's fervent intercession addressed equally to the Lord Jesus Christ and to God the Father.

2 Thessalonians 3:3

2 Thessalonians 3:3

How often the 'BUTS' of the bible stand in stark contradistinction between i) the faithfulness of God and His great goodness ; and ii) the trite unbelief of His children and their sinfulness. Praise God for the many eternal 'BUTs' in the Bible. Praise the Lord for the glorious BUT in this verse: BUT the Lord is faithful, Who shall establish you, and guard you from the evil one. We serve a good and faithful God, Who has promised to works His good work read more...

2 Thessalonians 3:4

It was not long after his first letter to them that Paul received news of the Thessalonian Christians from a trusted contact. He was blessed to hear the good news that they were growing in grace and remaining faithful to the truth.. despite the severe persecution they were facing.

Paul also was given disturbing information that a forged letter, containing a false teaching, was circulating, which was purportedly from him. It had read more...

2 Thessalonians 3:5

2 Thessalonians 3:5

Paul was a man of prayer who believed that, although everything in life was subject to God's divine will; eternal purpose and sovereign permission.. he also knew that God hears the intercessions of the saints and answered the prayers of His servants - causing all things to work together for our good and for His own glory. And so in this section of Scripture we discover Paul asking for prayer - while resting on the fact that God is the strength of our heart read more...

2 Thessalonians 3:16

2 Thessalonians 3:16

From the dawn of mankind, there is probably nothing that has been more sought after in this world at war, than peace. Nations have fought bitter wars for peace and lives have been lost in a vain pursuit after peace, but peace offered by this world's system is a false, fragile, imperfect, pseudo-peace that leaves a hungry heart and a disappointed soul.

The God of Peace started to unveil Himself as "The Lord our Peace" to the read more...
