Wesley's Notes for 1 Thessalonians 5:12


5:12 Know them that, Labour among you: Are over you in the Lord: Admonish you. Know - See, mark, take knowledge of them and their work. Sometimes the same person may both labour, that is, preach; be over, or govern; and admonish the flock by particular application to each: sometimes two or more different persons, according as God variously dispenses his gifts. But O, what a misery is it when a man undertakes this whole work without either gifts or graces for any part of it! Why, then, will he undertake it? for pay? What! will he sell both his own soul and all the souls of the flock? What words can describe such a wretch as this? And yet even this may be an honourable man!

    1 Thess. 5:5-7 - this is for any who may not 'understand' these verses. The children of 'light' and 'day' KNOW IN TRUTH the Word OF God (Jesus) and obey it. The 'drunken in the night' are those who refuse to know His Word of Truth; they ae in darkness concerning His Word.
  • Matthew
    Jesus said that after the tribulation of those days the sun would be darkened the moon not give her light the stars shall fall from heaven the powers of heaven shall be shaken: and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall the tribes of the earth mourn, they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Matt 24:29 30.
  • Joyce Ballentine
    1 Thessalonians 5:24 "The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it." WE AS THE BODY OF CHRIST MUST BE REMINDED THAT THE ONE WHO CALLED US OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT IS FAITHFUL! WE CAN NOT ALLOW THE DARKNESS IN THIS WORLD DISTRACT US FROM THE ONE WHO IS FAITHFUL TO US EVEN WHEN WE ARE NOT SO FAITHFUL! THE ENEMY IS THROWING A LOT OF LIES AND FALSE DOCTRINE IN THE WORLD TO TRY

    There is an appointment for the ungodly , which is the wrath of God : there is an appointment for the Godly ,those that are in Christ Jesus , salvation . God's people are not appointed to wrath . I obtain salvation through my Lord Jesus Christ !!!
  • Carol Karam
    I think that forgiveness and salvation is there for the asking, HE welcomes us with open arms, we just have to ask and accept.
