    2 Thessalonians 3:14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. Some brothers in Christ might not have all the answers to the Word of God, but if that brother is willing to pervert the Word of God, then we must have no company with him. We still have to love and pray for him in the Lord.

    Verse 10: One must be willing to work if he or she is able in order to care for their necessities. We don't want to be an unnecessary burden to others if we are able to work and provide for ourselves and our families.

  • Word
    Jim wait for true Christ hail stones won't hit you or the burning fire, God is a consuming fire, standing next to a worshipper of antichrist that fire won't hurt but will be a warm feeling of love going through you. When the vials are poured and the wrath of God hits has nothing to do with those who waited for the true Christ. They heard the message that came from the elect delivered up an waited.
  • Word
    Jim 1st tribulation is for all of us and it's a test for everyone and how some people can think they are somehow better than the elect who will stand against the false messiah and others who say they don't have to be in the tribulation is ignorance. We are all changed at the 7th trump and Christ comes here to set up His Kingdom.Listen to the two witnesses and those delivered up Holy Spirit speaks
  • Word
    I won't be troubled in mind at what is said because that day of tribulation won't come until there is a great falling away and that man of sin is revealed the devil who will stand in Jerusalem claiming he is God and I will take heed and I won't leave the field of work and chase after a false Christ when they say Christ is in the desert or in the chambers. Wait, hail stones an fire 7th trump. Wait!
