1 Paul and Siluanus, and Timotheus vnto the Church of the Thessaloniās, in God our Father, and the Lord Iesus Christ:

2 Grace vnto you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lorde Iesus Christ.

3 Wee are bound to thanke God alwayes for you, brethren, as it is meete, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charitie of euery one of you al towards each other aboundeth:

4 So that wee our selues glorie in you in the Churches of God, for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that yee endure.

5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous iudgement of God, that yee may bee counted worthy of the kingdome of God, for which yee also suffer;

6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompence tribulation to them that trouble you:

7 And to you who are troubled, rest with vs, when the Lord Iesus shalbe reuealed from heauen, with his mightie Angels,

8 In flaming fire, taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the Gospel of our Lorde Iesus Christ,

9 Who shalbe punished with euerlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power:

10 When hee shall come to bee glorified in his Saints, and to bee admired in all them that beleeue (because our testimony among you was beleeued) in that day.

11 Wherefore also we pray alwayes for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodnesse, and the worke of faith with power:

12 That the Name of our Lord Iesus Christ may bee glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God, and the Lord Iesus Christ.

Rhonda, you can find your answer in Revelations 19:11-13 11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Does the word teach us Jesus will return in a flame of fire or on a white horse?

At judgment at the great white throne if your rewards are bad and not good then you are blotted out but no one has been judged yet and there is a holding place that has a void between the holding place for those unbelievers and heaven where those who believe are with the Lord. In the psalms it tells us that the wicked go up like smoke off fat on that judgment day and there are no tears in heaven so you will never remember the loved ones you lost that were blotted out.


Brenda's 2 Thessalonians Chapter 1 comment on 10/05/2014, 8:55pm...

I don 't understand the person who said we would be destroyed like clothes being burned in a fire, ceasing to exsist. The parable of lazarus, says that when the rich man died, he was tormented in flames. Luke chpt.16 vs.23 again in Matthew chapter 25 vs 41 Jesus on words tell that an unprofitable servant would be cast into everlasting fire, and this come from Jesus mouth when speaking of the last judgement.when Jesus spoke to the the if next to him on the cross he was, I believe speaking of his soul being with him at rest until the day of judgement when all souls will be resurrected at the last judgement.


Kk's 2 Thessalonians Chapter 1 comment about verse 6 on 4/09/2014, 12:19pm...

I think it is just as it is written.Its not what we think,its what is said.Someone was constantly hurting my husband so I took his name and picture and put it into the Bible on this verse.The person that made my husbands life miserable got cancer and died.I only asked God to take care of this matter and he did.I had no control over it.I did not ask for anyone to die!We cannot hurt others and expect to get by with it.We will pay for what we do.We are given permission to ask God to make them pay.If we try to pay them back on our own,its wrong because this is Gods business.Its only righteous if God is in it.

This verse means simply what it says. There is no need for interpretation, for the LORD JESUS allowed Paul to write it in specifics, not parable. The mystery is unfolded for us. If you do not believe on the LORD JESUS than this is the end of the reign of your grace.


IKECHUKWU AGOHA's 2 Thessalonians Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 1/11/2014, 4:07am...

That bible portion is self explanatory. The word "destruction" means to destroy, to remove, to cut off, to annihilate, to exterminate, to obiliterate. So when the bible therein, said that the wicked shall under go eternal destruction, it simply mean the wicked shall be destroyed entirely. For instance, let us assume, that you have some of your cloths that are no longer useful to you, when you put them into fire, will the cloths remain the same? NO. The cloths will burn to ashes. Let us also cite the example of noah's day. When the bad people where destroyed, did the bible record that they went to hell fire? No. They were destroyed entirely. So this bible portion suggests total destruction, which means that the wicked wont receive any punishment in any place of torment, rather they will be destroyed. Psalms 37 verses 9, 10, 20, 34, 38.) JEREMIAH 25 verses 31 to 33,) 2PETER 2 Verse 9, ) and PROVERB 2 Verses 21 and 22, Will help Us to understand the meaning of that 2thessalonia 1 verse 6. And also help us to understand that, there is nothing like hell fire. Hell means grave, and not a place meant for bad ppl only, both bad and good people go to bible hell. Example, Jesus . Acts 2 verse 31. And also the thief that died on the tree with Jesus. Luke 23 verse 43. He will be resurrected from the hell or grave. Acts 24 verse 15. Bible said therein, the unjust will be resurrected, which means that thief is among the unjust that will be resurrected in the last day.
