Wesley's Notes for 1 Thessalonians 3:3


3:3 We are appointed hereto - Are in every respect laid in a fit posture for it, by the very design and contrivance of God himself for the trial and increase of our faith and all other graces. He gives riches to the world; but stores up his treasure of wholesome afflictions for his children.

    Ephesians 1:7 7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. God looks at us as thou we never sin. But the flesh will still sin.

    Ray? There are many Churches that love one another,they talk about The Bible,Way of Salvation.Do different things,thinking they are Saved and are more Lost then The World. One Big Social Club. Some on this site have lunch with The Wolf. Only by The Blood of The Lamb and The Word of God,We can Win The Battle:Ephesians 10:18. It's getting harder to find a Body of True Believers.

    Julie, Acts 20:29-30, grievous Wolf's and religious perverts are to split up the flock, as Paul states. Inevitable, considering sinful man. 1 Timothy 4:4, forbidding to eat certain meats and forbidding to marry. We all should understand these things, having watched religious goings in. GBU

    This chapter shows so clearly the FAITH the first Christians had. Christians right now, 2017, are suffering trials of mind and body, but Jesus knows all about it and did know long before it began. His will for us is to be tried for our faith, to strengthen us for Him and make HEAVEN. Pray,
  • Irene123
    1 Thess.2:18 - "satan hindered us"; 3:2 - "and sent Timotheus"; I just wonder - I know the hindering was of God, satan has to ask permission to touch God's anointed (but satan can touch sinners without His permission) "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm." I wonder if God's plan in the hindering was so Timotheus would be sent, maybe for the experience he needed, or whatever.
