Wesley's Notes for 1 Thessalonians 1:10


1:10 Whom he hath raised from the dead - In proof of his future coming to judgment. Who delivereth us - He redeemed us once; he delivers us continually; and will deliver all that believe from the wrath, the eternal vengeance, which will then come upon the ungodly.


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.

    Should read At his birth. That's when King Herodotus killed all the Babies 2yrs old and under.

    Irene:Wrath is not Tribulation.Tribulation is not Wrath.Wrath is for nonbelievers,the lost,the dead. Tribulation comes to The Believers Washed by The Blood of The Lamb. Persecution and Tribulation started before His Birth and Keeps getting Worse until The Great Tribulation, Worse than The Holocaust. We must through much Tribulation enter The Kingdom of God.

    How could anyone read JUST v. 10 - and think Christians are going thru the tribulation. Yes, Christians will HAVE tribulation in this life - just as our example Jesus did. But that's mild compared with the WRATH to come on the unbelievers for - SEVEN YEARS. Those who claim otherwise seem to WANT to go through it. I wouldn't even mention the trib. if I th'ot I was going through it!!
