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

    Doug; You are absolutely right! And anyone who wishes to follow Jesus in this world ALREADY KNOWS that we are set to encounter tribulation and opposition and persecution! The more we become transformed and sanctified, the more we amend our ways and our doings to be REALLY men and women after God's own heart,: the world and the wicked are NOT going to congratulate us and leave us alone!
  • Jay
    Psalm 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
  • Jay
    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.

    As in the Days of Noah so shall also be the coming of the Son of man Be. Noah and famliy entered and the people which did not believe were destroyed by the flood because of their wickedness. The Tribulation is the Wrath of God.
  • Doug
    We Will go through the great tribulation, remember the souls under the altar ask when, he said after the rest of you brothers are killed as you where.
  • 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!
