1Th 1:8 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord, etc. The effect of the gospel in Thessalonica was so striking that the report of it went through all Macedonia and Greece, and awakened inquiry, so that a knowledge of the gospel was thus spread abroad. So that we need not to speak any thing. Wherever he went he found that the news of the church in the great city of Thessalonica had preceded him, so that he did not need to tell it.

    yes it is true Christ died on the cross and went through suffering for you!

    John chapter 3 verse 16 answers this question for us very nicely.

    Jesus gave his perfect human life as a ransom to repay the perfect, everlasting life which Adam lost by disobeying Jehovah God in the Garden of Eden. Anyone who believes, repents and exercises faith in Jesus' ransom sacrifice in behalf of Adam's descendants(us), can be saved and have the wonderful hope of living a healthy life forever on an peaceful earth. See John ch17vs3, and Rev ch21 vs3,4,5.

    For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Thessalonians 5:9. Thank You Father for the loving assurance that You will save all who love You in sincerity of heart. In CHRIST we are SAVED. Amen. The obedient who love the LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST in sincerity will be saved from wrath. The disobedient who believe they are appointed to the wrath of Great tribulation and try to deceive others to believe the same will suffer wrath.
  • Sylvia
    Seek the Lord while he can be found. He's coming back with his rewards and judgement will we be ready?
    Thank you father for your grace and mercy.
