Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 2 Thessalonians 1:6


1:6 It is a righteous thing with God - (However men may judge) to transfer the pressure from you to them. And it is remarkable that about this time, at the passover, the Jews raising a tumult, a great number (some say thirty thousand) of them were slain. St. Paul seems to allude to this beginning of sorrows, #1Th 2:16|, which did not end but with their destruction.

    Vs. 7-9; this is AFTER the 1,000 yr. reign, when this present earth and all those who refused Jesus are cast into the lake of fire - FOREVER. 'Hell' is now; the Lake of Fire is what even hell is going to be cast into, Rev. 20:14

    Jim read Ezekiel 13 and you will learn that preachers who dream up things out of their own minds. It also talks about prophets but male and female that hide Gods plan of salvation from his out reached loving hands and arms and then goes into those preachers who God hates that teach his children to fly to save their souls. Just so you get prepared antichrist comes no buying selling 3 months.

    Paul is encouraging those believers that God will avenge those who are persecuting them. Our good Lord has it all under control whether it seems like it or not. The rapture will take place, the man of sin will be revealed and finally the Lord will take His vengeance We who are truly born again do not need to worry at all or be afraid. We are the object of Christ's love! His body and bride!
