    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.

    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 !!!

    I think that forgiveness and salvation is there for the asking, HE welcomes us with open arms, we just have to ask and accept.
  • Lenora
    I wish that this chapter was read to all the brenthen as asked in verse 27, but even more that the real saints of God would began to be doers and not just hearers alone. My biggest struggle has been with those who proclaim the name of Christ. Therefore making the pursue of Christ harder than it should be.

    Heavenly Father, Thank You LORD JESUS for saving a wretched soul like me and renewing my spirit in truth and faith and love. Thank You Father for not appointing Your children in CHRIST to wrath as all perish in wrath. Bless all, Father, specially those who love Thee. In CHRIST I LIVE. Amen 1 Thessalonians 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
