People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 4:13


1Th 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren. It seems that the Thessalonian brethren, expecting the speedy coming of the Lord, mourned over some of their number who had died, counting it a great loss that they did not live to meet Jesus. Concerning them who are asleep. What we call death is only falling asleep in the arms of our Lord.

    Norm thank you bringing Eph. 5 vs 6 and Col. 3 vs 6 that brings the wrath of God to them that have been deceived and the worshipping an get caught with a fake husband saying they are not a widow any longer that their husband has returned but it's a false messiah not waiting for the true CHRIST who comes with no observation and as a thief because they are not even looking or watching for our CHRIST

    Holy Father, thank You for letting us hear Your voice that we may know that in CHRIST JESUS we are saved! Amen Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

    Correct, all here to go through the TEST. The elect chosen to stand against Satan and the word of God that will come from them trying to lead Gods children away from the false messiah at that time. antichrist will sit in Jerusalem claiming to be God with his supernatural powers and false peace wanting to be worshipped as a God and those that follow Satan thinking he is CHRIST, are in big trouble.
  • Phineas masaku
    There's resurrection after death as Jesus did.
