Discussion for 1 Thessalonians 5

  • Irene123
    Vs. 6-7; "Sober" - as well as being alert, watchful, the word also takes in drunkenness, v. 7. And worldly 'jesting'; there are times for Christian jesting, only 'times' - when the occasion calls for it, which, in His wisdom, will be very few.
  • Irene123
    V. 7 reverts back to v. 5 - 'night' is spiritual darkness, not literal night.
  • Irene123
    Salvation - we just have to ask and accept. Then how does one explain Matt. 28:19 and Acts 2:38 ..... ? And Jas. 2:17-26 ..... ?

    The words Wrath and Quenching The Holy Spirit, is my focal point of the scripture text; because these two action words will lead me to sin. So,in learning this I will activate my Christian walk in Abstinence. Amen.
  • Irene123
    1 Thess. 5:5-7 - this is for any who may not 'understand' these verses. The children of 'light' and 'day' KNOW IN TRUTH the Word OF God (Jesus) and obey it. The 'drunken in the night' are those who refuse to know His Word of Truth; they ae in darkness concerning His Word.
