2Th 1:5 A manifest token of the righteous judgment of God. Your sufferings are a proof of judgment to come. The wicked are not receiving their deserts; the righteous are suffering. A future judgment, hence, must come, because God is righteous. That ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which also ye suffer. Their sufferings not only proved a judgment to come, but tried them, purified them, and prove them worthy.
