People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 5:5


1Th 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day. They are of the light, of the day, because they have come to Christ for light, and are taught of him. Hence on this subject they are fully informed. We are not of the night, nor of darkness. Those are "of the night", who turn away from the light and refuse to accept it.

Discussion for 1 Thessalonians 5

  • 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 ..... ?
  • GodsLove1
    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.

  • MockingBird
    There is an appointment for the ungodly , which is the wrath of God : there is an appointment for the Godly ,those that are in Christ Jesus , salvation . God's people are not appointed to wrath . I obtain salvation through my Lord Jesus Christ !!!
