    Very educational bible history.
  • Rosemary Gumede
    This book challenges me as a believer. It speaks to me about the importance of believing and being steadfast in Christ, in His Word and in deed. I love this book. So far here, I have just read the 1st chapter online and will continue to read. It is making me reflect on my own Christian walk. Back to reading studying.

    Rosemary Gumede, bless you for reading God's word, you are really not reading the bible, but actually the bible is reading you. I have heard pastors say this, and it is true. Please go to You tube and type in pastor Reg Kelly Table In The Wilderness and find his message Face In The Book , he gives a plan on how to read through the KJV Bible. It is a very good plan that he outlines here.
  • Matthew 10:28
    And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
  • JP

    People are mixed up: Saints meet Jesus in the Air: His second Coming: Two different events. After saints meet Our Lord in the Air, go straight to Heaven to receive our Crowns, etc.Will be in Heaven for Seven Years, that time the anti-Christ will be revealed. Tribulation of Revelation will start. After seven years the Saints and Our Lord will return(second coming).To fight Satan and his armies.

    In the third chapter, a question is asked where were they when they wrote the letter. They gave an incorrect answer of Corinth. The correct answer should be Athens. It also states Athens at the end of chapter 5.
  • Vanessa
    This was a letter Paul wrote to the church, speaking how pleased God was that they turned from idols and excepted Jesus as their Lord and saviour,as we all should be thankful and grateful for the love of the living God, there is knowone greater then he, praise him in prayer, speak of him often, if you don't have the wisdom you feel of his word ask him, live in faith, trust in him,except the Lord
  • Mary Brown
    this chapter address the three person, this I read, but didn't Paul wrote the book of Thessalonian.

    Ivan, it's not works that saves a man but believe in Christ. Jesus died for us not the devil. If we have a relationship He can never say, I NEVER KNEW YOU. Not of works lest any man should boast. If we obey and have a close relationship we will have good works. Jesus NEVER said after He resurrected He would come back twice. That's man making scripture fitting his views. Devil cant take us we r His
  • A disciple
    Ivan; It is extremely important what we believe; and is nothing contained in Scripture that we may have our own opinions about. It is imperative that we be here up to the end for God to judge the world. We are ordained and anointed for being witnesses of the grace of Jesus Christ, and His completed work of our Redemption; by the power of the Holy Spirit who sanctifies us, and uses us to convict.
  • Ivan
    Bruce. Yes you are correct about believers experiencing tribulation, but that is not the 7 year tribulation spoken of in Daniel and Revelation. The 7 year tribulation is the wrath of God upon man kind. Last wake up call. Not meant for the bride of Christ.
  • A disciple
    Hi Travis; Yes, since Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden, man has been appointed to toil and sorrow and tribulation in the world. For all that goes with our experience in this evil world, under the terror and deceptions of the prince of this world; THAT is what is meant by "not some special event." Genesis 11:6 tells about how the transgressors will at one point be no longer restrained.
  • Travis Reed
    Adiscpile i am one of those who belive in the 7 year tribulation but i account that to the end times last chance to make with God for those left,but Ibelieve we all live in tribulation so if you get this could you elobarate on your message about the tribulation not being some special event and how you got this train of thought
  • Bruce
    Ivan: Tribulation started couple thousand years ago./ All True Believers must go through much Tribulation, before Entering The Kingdom of God. Acts 14:22. / They been Tortured,Burned, Hung on crosses, fed to the animals, Beheaded. On the other side of The Planet it's going on Daily it will get worse right before The Last trumpet sounds. / Revelation 20:15
  • Ivan
    Gerald. Yes there are more scriptures about Christians going thru the tribulation because most will not be ready to go on the first harvest. No oil in their lamps. He is coming for those who are faithful now and living in holiness, not perfect but mature. The parable of the ten virgins offers a lot of light on this subject. Lord warned that the lukewarm would be spewed out of His mouth.
  • Eutychus
    Vs10 "even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come." I see two possible fulfilments of this prophetic utterance. The destruction of Jerusalem in circa 67-70 a.d. And the final deliverance for those His own, at His return. Regardless, we can thank God for such a deliverance. For to me, being prone to doing stupid things...He is first among all other things, my God of Deliverance.
  • A disciple
    Doug; You are absolutely right! And anyone who wishes to follow Jesus in this world ALREADY KNOWS that we are set to encounter tribulation and opposition and persecution! The more we become transformed and sanctified, the more we amend our ways and our doings to be REALLY men and women after God's own heart,: the world and the wicked are NOT going to congratulate us and leave us alone!
  • Jay
    Psalms 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

    Luke 21:36 | Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

    As in the Days of Noah so shall also be the coming of the Son of man Be. Noah and famliy entered and the people which did not believe were destroyed by the flood because of their wickedness. The Tribulation is the Wrath of God.
  • Doug
    We Will go through the great tribulation, remember the souls under the altar ask when, he said after the rest of you brothers are killed as you where.
  • A disciple
    Gerald; All the record in the Bible, and all our real experience as a Believer among other men, and the LORD's very many words admonishing us about how we are to expect tribulation in this present evil world; show us that it is NOT some special event of 7 years that is popularly held to; but rather a coming to the full of the transgressors, as they harden themselves and cast away all restraint.
  • A disciple
    Hi Gerald; I was reading your recent posts, and I'd like to say I agree with most everything you write. The popular modern-day belief in a 7 years tribulation makes one suppose it to be some strange and mysterious sinister event breaking in on an otherwise okay world; and really comes out of great ignorance of ancient world history as it is recorded in the Bible and blindness about the world now!
  • Gerald
    If we are raptured at the begining of the 7 yrs, as most think, then why after being cast out of heaven at the middle of the 7 yrs, and he knows that he has a short time,3 1/2 yrs, chapter 12:12 of book of Revelation, why is he going after the Christians that are living at that time? There are so MANY scriptures that prove we are going thru the 7 yr trib. To be continued later.
  • Gerald
    I believe we will go through the tribulation as it says in Matthew 24:1-44 especially vrs 29-31. At the middle of the 7 yrs the anti-christ will stand in the temple saying he is God. Book of revelation says there will be a war in heaven,12:7-17 and the satan and his angels were cast out of heaven and has come down to the earth. Satan will not have access to heaven after being cast to the earth.
  • Ray321
    1 Thessalonians 1:5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. It was very important for the Gentile Church of Thessalonians to follow the gospel that Paul preach and wrote. They also follow Paul.
  • Bruce
    Should read At his birth. That's when King Herodotus killed all the Babies 2yrs old and under.
  • Bruce
    Irene:Wrath is not Tribulation.Tribulation is not Wrath.Wrath is for nonbelievers,the lost,the dead. Tribulation comes to The Believers Washed by The Blood of The Lamb. Persecution and Tribulation started before His Birth and Keeps getting Worse until The Great Tribulation, Worse than The Holocaust. We must through much Tribulation enter The Kingdom of God.
