People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 2:19


1Th 2:19 Or crown of rejoicing. As the victor in the games could point to his crown as the proof of his powers, so Paul could point to the Gentile churches as the proof of ministry. At his coming. Paul took pride in the thought how great a work the Lord at his coming would behold which he had wrought in the gospel.

    THESSALONIANS 2:4 BUT AS WE WERE ALLOWED OF GOD TO BE PUT IN TRUST WITH THE GOSPEL EVEN SO WE SPEAK NOT AS PLEASING MEN BUT GOD WHICH TRIETH OUR HEARTS 2 CORINTHIANS 5:18 AND ALL THINGS ARE OF GOD WHO HATH RECONCILED US TO HIMSELF BY JESUS CHRIST AND HATH GIVEN UNTO US THE MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION

    1 Thessalonians 2:14 For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: Notice Paul did not say follow Jesus, but the churches of God which in Judaea. The reason is to not confuse the gospel of Paul. Paul wanted the his teaching to stay the same .

    Men like Ahab surround themselves with their own kind of prophets, which tell them what they want to hear, and encourage them on fools' errands; not knowing, and hating to ever hear, that God is still conducting the whole affair from His throne in heaven; and is actually working these things out for their destruction. Great reference, Insight! For the Jews who received not Jesus are the same kind.

    V15, Paul is speaking of the Jews that killed their own prophets. Their Prophets that did not tell the king what he wanted to hear were killed. The king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may enquire of the Lord: but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil." The king did not want truth, he wanted victory and power.
