People's Bible Notes for 2 Thessalonians 1:5


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.

    2 THESSALONIANS 1:7 AND TO YOU WHO ARE TRUOBLED REST WITH US WHEN THE LORD JESUS SHALL BE REVEALED FROM HEAVEN WITH HIS MIGHTY ANGELS 1:9 IN FLAMING FIRE TAKING VENGEANCE ON THEM THAT KNOW NOT GOD AND THAT OBEY NOT THE GOSPEL OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST

    Irene123, your right, we are not here to bully people in words of anger for our pride of the God's Word. But, we are here to worship God in truth and honor. When Adam ate of the forbidden fruit of knowledge of good and evil, Satan took control of this world. Now God has to redeem of back by sending his Son Jesus Christ. That is all explain in all of Apostle Paul's episode. God bless you

    V. 8 - "In flaming fire ... on those who know not God ..."; this is exactly why we are here now - and not in heaven as soon as we are saved - to try to pull 'those' out of the fire - hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. We're not here to 'rail' on those who don't know or are obtuse enough to think they know; we are to pray for and love ALL mankind.

    Bruce. Comfort Is because Paul had a bunch of mourners worried about where their loved ones had gone when they had departed. Paul letting them know that as Christ had rose from the dead their loved one also had rose and when Christ returns their love ones will also return. Air here is spirit breath of life, spiritual bodies. Clouds is as the race Paul spoke of crowd.All changed one time 7th Trump.
