Wesley's Notes for 1 Thessalonians 1:10

People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 1:10


1Th 1:10 And to wait for his Son from heaven. The apostles saw the Lord ascend, but he left a promise that he would return, with the time wholly unrevealed. Hence, in preaching the gospel, they made his return to the world very prominent, and perhaps believed themselves in his speedy coming. Until after Jerusalem was destroyed the churches "waited", as though the Lord would soon be revealed. We should still wait, "watch and pray" (Mt 26:24 Mr 13:33 14:38 Lu 21:36). We know not the hour when he may either come (Mt 24:42 Re 3:3), or we be called to him.

Discussion for 1 Thessalonians 1

  • A disciple
    Gerald; All the record in the Bible, and all our real experience as a Believer among other men, and the LORD's very many words admonishing us about how we are to expect tribulation in this present evil world; show us that it is NOT some special event of 7 years that is popularly held to; but rather a coming to the full of the transgressors, as they harden themselves and cast away all restraint.
  • A disciple
    Hi Gerald; I was reading your recent posts, and I'd like to say I agree with most everything you write. The popular modern-day belief in a 7 years tribulation makes one suppose it to be some strange and mysterious sinister event breaking in on an otherwise okay world; and really comes out of great ignorance of ancient world history as it is recorded in the Bible and blindness about the world now!
  • Gerald
    If we are raptured at the begining of the 7 yrs, as most think, then why after being cast out of heaven at the middle of the 7 yrs, and he knows that he has a short time,3 1/2 yrs, chapter 12:12 of book of Revelation, why is he going after the Christians that are living at that time? There are so MANY scriptures that prove we are going thru the 7 yr trib. To be continued later.
  • Gerald
    I believe we will go through the tribulation as it says in Matthew 24:1-44 especially vrs 29-31. At the middle of the 7 yrs the anti-christ will stand in the temple saying he is God. Book of revelation says there will be a war in heaven,12:7-17 and the satan and his angels were cast out of heaven and has come down to the earth. Satan will not have access to heaven after being cast to the earth.
  • Ray321
    1 Thessalonians 1:5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. It was very important for the Gentile Church of Thessalonians to follow the gospel that Paul preach and wrote. They also follow Paul.
