Wesley's Notes for 1 Thessalonians 5:19


5:19 Quench not the Spirit - Wherever it is, it burns; it flames in holy love, in joy, prayer, thanksgiving. O quench it not, damp it not in yourself or others, either by neglecting to do good, or by doing evil!


People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 5:19


1Th 5:19 Quench not the Spirit. Do not resist it, or counteract its influence by sensual lives. He does who disobeys the word of God, or refuses to follow the exhortations of those led by the Spirit, or who stifle his own conscience.

    Tosha - I'm just really very curious; on which comment were you basing your comment about 'appearance'? I'd like to read it.
  • Tosha
    My comment is this, who judges your appearance? Their is only one God, and he has allowed a few to write some things of what he expects, but unless u have read the entire bible and extra bks, u have no idea what the start of what God our creator expects of our appearance.
  • Diane Collins
    Pray until you can't pray no more this the only thing God said to do with out ceasing, if you continue to pray we will win every war cause the devil don't stop.
  • A disciple
    Irene; Ever since Cain and Abel, the Righteous have had to bear with the tribulations imposed on them by those who despise and reject the Word of the Anointed Saviour. In fact it was generally the Sentence passed on us as a species because of Adam's sin, that we have tribulation, toil and sorrow: a "trade off" if you will, for being allowed to live the rest of our lives, in faith of Christ coming.
  • Irene123
    Jesus' saints don't 'reject' His wrath; they can't; they can only reject His salvation. The wrath to come (Great Trib.) is coming to the unsaved - who reject His salvation; after those 7 yrs. then His 1.000 yr. reign, then the final judgement.
  • A disciple
    There seems here to be some misunderstanding about "tribulation," and as to whether the Saints must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. But when someone comes along and suggests that tribulation is the same as God's wrath, and something we should reject; they unwittingly make themselves enemies of the Cross; and we find that a snare from the devil has been laid before us!
