Wesley's Notes for 2 Thessalonians 1:8
1:8 Taking vengeance - Does God barely permit this, or (as the Lord once rained brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven, #Gen 19:24|) does a fiery stream go forth from him for ever? Who know not God - (The root of all wickedness and misery) who remain in heathen ignorance. And who obey not - This refers chiefly to the Jews, who had heard the gospel.

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.

In flaming fire will those who donot know God and those who do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.. Means not knowing that He is ONE, never a 3 person, not god the son not god the holy spirit. Not obeying the Gospel which is written in 1 corinthians 15:1-4. not accepting to be baptize in Jesus name and being ashame of the Gospel.
