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.

    Matthew 6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come and even now already is it in the world. 1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

    Paul understood that believers are the church of God in Jesus Christ. God the Father entrusted the gospel to Paul to strengthen his brothers in faith and love toward one another and to all men. Paul 's glory was their patients and faith during times of persecution and suffering for the sake of the gospel. Jesus chose Paul, and told him how much he would suffer for the sake of the gospel. Those we are born again are chosen by God, and they will also suffer for the sake of the gospel. But we are to counted all joy that we are counted worthy of God 's kingdom. God is righteous, and we will suffer for his goodness. God will bring suffering on them that trouble us.

    God 's will is that our faith and love grows exceedingly when we give him thanks in everything we do. Also nothing should touch our lips without giving him thanks. Those who work for our Lord Jesus Christ are highly treated with love and respect, for the sake of work of the Lord. We walk worthy of God 's calling treating all people with support, comfort, kindness, and love. Paul assures the Thessalonians that we are children of the Light, and the children of the day. No one knows the time and the season but there is not concern for us when he comes. When he comes it will be without warning, but God has not appointed us to his anger. Jesus died for us. Romans 8:31-38 He who spared not his Son, but gave Him up for us all, will he not also freely give us all things? Destruction will not over takes us, because we are in Jesus! Our rejoicing and glory is in our brothers and sister whom the Lord God has saved. Knowing that the Heavenly Father has chosen us in His Son Jesus.
