Discussion for 1 Thessalonians 5

  • Irene123
    Vs. 12 - 13; I pray that people who read this ch. take notice of these 2 verses. No one mentioned them on here so, it's hard to tell. There are lots of 'Christians' who do not 'esteem' their pastors, but at the same time - are not taught by their 'pastors'. Attending church with an 'hireling' pastor is a completely no win situation.
  • 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.

    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.
