Wesley's Notes for 1 Thessalonians 4:5


4:5 Not in passionate desire - Which had no place in man when in a state of innocence. Who know not God - And so may naturally seek happiness in a creature. What seemingly accidental words slide in; and yet how fine, and how vastly important!


People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 4:5


1Th 4:5 Even as the Gentiles which know not God. Even the greatest of heathen moralists, Socrates, instructed a harlot how she should conduct her shameful business. The heathen moralists condemned unchastity only in the case of a childbearing wife, as it would wrong her husband not to know the paternity of her children.

    TO NORM - 1 THESS. 4 - AT THE END OF YOUR VERY GOOD MESSAGE YOU QUOTED ACTS 2:21. BUT - YOU NEGLECTED TO MENTION ACTS2:38 FIRST. THE PEOPLE LISTENING TO PETER ASKED,:WHAT MUST WE DO? THE UNWRITTEN - "TO BE SAVED" - IS 'UNDERSTOOD'.
    YOU CANNOT PICK 'N CHOOSE YOUR 'OWN' SALVATION FROM GOD'S WORD. 'IF' ONE IS SINCERE COMING UP OUT OF THE WATER - HE WILL BE CALLING ON JESUS' NAME.
  • Shiloh
    "Prohecies" of man abound today. We must be VERY careful about speaking or receiving words attributed to our God. It's such a serious matter, Deut. 18 said false prophets were to be put to death.
  • Norm
    1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. "This prophecy is sent by commandment of God Almighty. Read and retain for reproof, instruction and your salvation. The following events mark world descent into spiritual damnation, or hell: the Syrian President will visit the United States for what appears to be a diplomacy visit. During the visit, the US will experience large-scale blackouts, particularly in the northeast, coastal and metro areas. Soon after, during the blackouts, the LORD JESUS CHRIST will save the faithful, children, teens, the destitute and others from around the world. Immediately proceeding this event, US coastal cities and military bases, beginning with NY, will fall under nuclear attack from Russia, China and others. Cities will lay desolate with the remaining people devastated and the world in chaos. Anarchy, famine, enslavement and horrible deaths will ensue. Repent and ask JESUS to save you from this hell. Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
