Wesley's Notes for 2 Thessalonians 1:9


1:9 From the glory of his power - Tremble, ye stout - hearted. Everlasting destruction - As there can be no end of their sins, (the same enmity against God continuing,) so neither of their punishment; sin and its punishment running parallel throughout eternity itself. They must of necessity, therefore, be cut off from all good, and all possibility of it. From the presence of the Lord - Wherein chiefly consists the salvation of the righteous. What unspeakable punishment is implied even in falling short of this, supposing that nothing more were implied in his taking vengeance!


People's Bible Notes for 2 Thessalonians 1:9


2Th 1:9 Who shall be punished. Those who obey not the gospel shall be punished. The punishment is everlasting destruction. This does not mean annihilation, but an eternal banishment from the presence of the Lord. In Matthew, the doom of the wicked is "Depart from me" (Mt 25:41). The saints are "ever with the Lord" (1Th 4:17); the wicked are driven forever from his presence.

    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.
