  • Scripture Past Speaks to us Converts in the NOW - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 3
    He was speaking to Timothy then. Also the verse speaks to us now, in later history. We are the young converts.

    In Chapter 3 of 1 Thessalonians, Paul showed his concern for the well-being of the young converts to Jesus Christ. This was his main purpose for sending Timothy and Silas back to them while he remained in Athens.

    The presence of Timothy was meant to strengthen the church in their faith as well as encourage the people to keep from being unsettled in times of trials. Paul also sent Timothy to find out if he had labored in vain.

    Next, Paul told of Timothy's report after he returned from Thessalonica. He said the report was very encouraging and he was very thankful for that. This news comforted Paul in his affliction and he said he was excited to see them in the near future.

    Paul concluded 1 Thessalonians Chapter 3 by saying that he prayed for God to open doors that would allow him to visit them again. He also prayed for the people, saying that he hoped their love for each other would grow in much the same way that his love for them had grown. He prayed that the Lord would establish their hearts in holiness for when the Lord Jesus Christ returned.

    You can google your scripture and type the word, history, after it and you can read the historic details of an event.

    The Apostle Paul was writing this letter to the Christians in Thessalonika in Macedonia/Greece.
  • 1 Thessalonians 3:12 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you
  • Carmen on 1 Thessalonians 3
    I like to read this every night and try to memorize the whole chapter.
  • Paul's burden was to see the church at Thessalonica grow in their faith and become mature believers which is only perfected through love. The world's definition of love is emotional and twisted through the lies of the Devil. True love Corinthians 15 rejoiceth in the truth. May the Lord help us to pursue Biblical love which will mature us in the faith.
  • Verse 12~An increase in love was being emphasized here and that is something that we all want to contribute to today.

    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. Preach The Blood
  • Ray321 on 1 Thessalonians 3
    1 Thessalonians 3:12 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you. If we get loving one another and share the gospel, we won't have to worry about wolf's in sheep clothing. Let us increase our Love and Faith in Christ Jesus.
  • 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

  • Irene123 on 1 Thessalonians 3
    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 on 1 Thessalonians 3
    1 Thessalonians 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.

  • Geraldine Cole on 1 Thessalonians 3
    Amen Jesus will help us if we allow him to help us we must trust him
  • William on 1 Thessalonians 3
    I think as the disciples need to go out and give our testimonie to others and bring other into the kingdom on a daily basis it is not difficult to be a witness for the lord .very sad more people do not go out and do it and talk about it. They talk about everything else do we love Jesus or not?
  • GARY D EARLY on 1 Thessalonians 3
    To me in verse they felt fine to be left in Athens ,they had faith
  • Dek Barbare on 1 Thessalonians 3
    While reading 1 Thessalonians, and answering the short quiz following chapters 1, 2, and 3 I am left with confusion as to where Paul was, once the answer was Phillipi, another time Corinth, yet he also speaks of Athens. Does anyone really know?
  • Keith Harris on 1 Thessalonians 3
    Question 4 about where this was written from is wrong. the correct answer is Athens not Corinth. Read the last verse of chapter 5 it say written from Athens.
  • We should not allow the devil, the tempter to keep us divided through our various church denominations but rather we should love one another any where we found ourselves as children of the Most High God and our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Hannah on 1 Thessalonians 3
    Children of God need to abound in love one toward another and by this, they will be able to unite as one and fight the common enemy devil . Children of God should not be discouraged during afflictions, knowing that even the master and the disciples suffered afflictions. What we need is the Grace and mercy of God to see us through.
  • I SEE HOW I NEED TO FINE THE BEST IN OTHER 'S AND LOVE THEM LIKE JESUS LOVE 'S THEM.IF JESUS SAW SOME ONE WHO NEEDED FOOD,HE WOULD GIVE THEM FOOD WITH ALL THE LOVE HE HAS. THAT IS ALOT FOR JESUS IS LOVE!!! IN OUR TIME IN THIS WORLD IF I SAW SOMEONE SETING ON THE SIDE WALK I WOULD GIVE THEM SOME MONEY NO BETTER YET I WOULD ASK THEM IF HE OR SHE WAS HUNGRY THEN GO BUY THEM SOMETHING TO EAT BRING THEM BACK SOMETHING.SOME TIME JUST A SMILE GO 'S A LONG WAYS. THAT WITH EVERYONE FINE THE GOOD IN OTHERS. GOD BLESS ALL
  • These men were giving time for the others to share the word of God and finally, they came together to greet and encourage all, each other which caused the continuance of the good and true news of Jesus Christ our savior, which before Jesus ascended to his Father, he commanded to the apostles to spread the salvation plan(Acts 2:38) to all that would hear. and there were those filled with the power of the Holy Ghost in the upper room, with the evidence of speaking in another tongue and to preach this to all and not stop spreading the good news, even to this day. Amen.
  • Cheryl lynn on 1 Thessalonians 3:12
    The Churches that preach hate and racism are not preaching the word of God. Remove yourself.
