THESSALONIANS

FIRST THESSALONIANS

Rescuing us from the Coming Wrath – (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10Jesus already is “rescuing” his people from the future “wrath” that will befall all who do not turn from transgression on the Day of the Lord)

A Crown of Boasting – (1 Thessalonians 2:17-20The Apostle Paul looks forward to when he will receive a “crown of glory” at the return of Jesus, the salvation of the faithful believers from the city of Thessalonica)

“Unblameable Before Him” – (1 Thessalonians 3:13Paul prays that the Thessalonians be found holy and blameless on the day when Jesus arrives in glory accompanied by his holy angels)

Meeting Jesus in the Air – (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 –  Paul reassured the Thessalonians that both living and dead saints will participate in the arrival of Jesus from heaven)

Sorrow Not – Resurrection Hope in Thessalonica – (1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:8The hope of the church is not its physical transportation off the Planet Earth but the bodily resurrection of believes when Jesus arrives from heaven)

Concerning Times and Seasons – (Paul did not detail “times and seasons” for the Thessalonians – They understood fully that the Lord will come “like a thief in the night” – 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11)

“Know the Times and the Seasons” – (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11Paul has no need to write the Thessalonians about the “times and seasons” because they understand fully that the Lord is coming “like a thief in the night”)

SECOND THESSALONIANS

The Revelation of Jesus from Heaven – (2 Thessalonians 1:5-10The coming of Jesus at the end of the age will mean vindication for the righteous but everlasting loss for the wicked)

Is the Day of the Lord Imminent? – (2 Thessalonians 2:1-2Someone fed disinformation to the Thessalonians about the nearness of the “day to the Lord,” causing alarm among the congregation)

The Man of Lawlessness – Missing Events – (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4Two events must occur before the Day of the Lord can commence – the apostasy and the unveiling of the Man of Lawlessness)

The Man of Lawlessness – Until Revealed – (2 Thessalonians 2:5-7The Mystery of Lawlessness is at work already in the world to prepare for the unveiling of the Man of Lawlessness)

The Man of Lawlessness – His Destruction – (2 Thessalonians 2:8-12Jesus will undo the evil works of the Man of Lawlessness at his Parousia or “Arrival”)
