Thessalonians Epistles Excerpts

text size A A A

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

But I (Paul) do NOT want YOU (Believers) to be ignorant, Brethren, concerning Those who have Fallen Asleep, lest YOU (Believers) sorrow, as others who have NO Hope. For if We (Believers) BELIEVE that Jesus (Jesus Christ) died and Rose Again, even so God (God Almighty) will BRING WITH HIM (Jesus Christ) those who Sleep in Jesus. For this We (Jesus’ Disciples) say to YOU (Believers) by The Word of The Lord (Jesus Christ), that We (Believers) who are Alive and Remain Until The Coming of The Lord (Jesus Christ) will by NO Means PRECEDE those who are Asleep. For The Lord (Jesus Christ) Himself will Descend from Heaven with a Shout, with The Voice of an Archangel, and with The Trumpet of God (God Almighty). And The Dead in Christ (Jesus Christ) will Rise First. Then We (Believers) who are Alive and Remain shall be Caught Up Together with Them (The Dead in Christ) in the Clouds to MEET The Lord (Jesus Christ) in the Air. And thus We (Believers) shall ALWAYS be with The Lord (Jesus Christ). Therefore Comfort One Another (Fellow Believers) with These Words.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

But concerning The Times and The Seasons, Brethren, YOU (Believers) have NO Need that I (Paul) should write to YOU (Believers). For YOU (Believers) Yourselves KNOW Perfectly that THE DAY OF THE LORD (Jesus Christ) so comes as a Thief in the Night. For when they (Unbelievers) say, “Peace and Safety!” then Sudden Destruction comes upon them (Unbelievers), as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they (Unbelievers) shall NOT Escape. But YOU (Believers), Brethren, are NOT in darkness, so that This Day (The Day of The Lord) should overtake YOU (Believers) as a Thief. YOU (Believers) are All Sons of Light and Sons of The Day. We (Believers) are NOT of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let Us (Believers) NOT sleep, as others do, but let Us (Believers) Watch and Be Sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let Us (Believers) who are of The Day, Be Sober, Putting On The Breastplate of Faith and Love, and as a Helmet, The Hope of Salvation. For God (God Almighty) did NOT Appoint Us (Believers) to Wrath, but to OBTAIN Salvation, through Our Lord Jesus Christ, who Died for Us (Believers), that whether We (Believers) Wake or Sleep, We (Believers) should Live Together with Him (Jesus Christ). Therefore Comfort each other (Fellow Believers) and Edify One Another (Fellow Believers), just as YOU (Believers) also are doing.

2 Thessalonians 1:3-12

We (Believers) are Bound to Thank God (God Almighty) always for YOU (Believers), Brethren, as it is fitting, because Your (Believers) Faith Grows Exceedingly, and The Love of Every One of YOU (Believers) All Abounds Toward Each Other (Fellow Believers), so that We (Believers) Ourselves Boast of YOU (Believers) among The Churches of God (God Almighty) for Your Patience and Faith, in All Your Persecutions and Tribulations that YOU (Believers) Endure, which is Manifest Evidence of The Righteous Judgment of God (God Almighty), that YOU (Believers) may be Counted Worthy of The Kingdom of God (God Almighty), for which YOU (Believers) also suffer; since it is a Righteous Thing with God (God Almighty) to Repay with Tribulation those (Unbelievers) who Trouble YOU (Believers), and to Give YOU (Believers) who are Troubled, Rest with Us (Believers), when The Lord Jesus (Jesus Christ) is REVEALED from Heaven with His Mighty Angels, in Flaming Fire taking Vengeance on those (Unbelievers) who do NOT know God (God Almighty), and on those (Unbelievers) who do NOT Obey The Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ. These (Unbelievers) shall be Punished with Everlasting Destruction from The Presence of The Lord (Jesus Christ) and from The Glory of His Power, when He (Jesus Christ) Comes, in That Day, to be Glorified in His (Jesus Christ’s) Saints (Believers) and to be Admired among All Those (Believers) who BELIEVE, because Our (Jesus’ Disciples) Testimony among YOU (Believers) was Believed. Therefore We (Believers) also pray always for YOU (Believers) that Our God (God Almighty) would Count YOU (Believers) Worthy of This Calling, and Fulfill All The Good Pleasure of His (God Almighty’s) Goodness and The Work of Faith with Power, that The Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ may be Glorified in YOU (Believers), and YOU (Believers) in Him (Jesus Christ), According to The Grace of Our God (God Almighty) and The Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

Now, Brethren (Believers), concerning The Coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ and Our (Believers) Gathering Together to Him (Jesus Christ), We (Believers) ask YOU (Believers), NOT to be Soon Shaken in Mind or Troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from Us (Jesus’ Disciples), as though THE DAY OF CHRIST (Jesus Christ) had Come. Let NO One Deceive YOU (Believers), by ANY Means; for That Day (The Day of Christ) will NOT Come, unless The Falling Away Comes First, and the man of sin is Revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself, above all, that is Called God or that is Worshiped, so that he sits as God in The Temple of God (God Almighty), showing himself that he is God. Do YOU not remember that when I (Paul) was still with YOU (Believers) I (Paul) told YOU (Believers) These Things? And now YOU (Believers) know what is Restraining, that he may be Revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; ONLY He (The Holy Spirit) who now Restrains, will do so until He (The Holy Spirit) is Taken Out of The Way. And then the lawless one will be Revealed, whom The Lord (Jesus Christ) will Consume with The Breath of His (Jesus Christ’s) Mouth and Destroy with The Brightness of His (Jesus Christ’s) Coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to The Working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those (Unbelievers) who Perish, because they (Unbelievers) did NOT receive The Love of The Truth (The Gospel of Jesus Christ), that they (Unbelievers) might be SAVED. And for This Reason, God (God Almighty) will Send them (Unbelievers) Strong DELUSION, that they (Unbelievers) should believe the lie, that they (Unbelievers) All may be Condemned, who did NOT believe The Truth (The Gospel of Jesus Christ), but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2 Thessalonians 2:13-17

But We (Jesus’ Disciples) are bound to Give Thanks to God (God Almighty) always for YOU (Believers), Brethren, Beloved by The Lord (Jesus Christ), because God (God Almighty) from The Beginning, Chose YOU (Believers) for Salvation, through Sanctification by The Spirit and Belief in The Truth (The Gospel of Jesus Christ), to which He (God Almighty) Called YOU (Believers) by Our (Jesus’ Disciples) Gospel, for The Obtaining of The Glory of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, Brethren (Believers), Stand Fast and Hold The Traditions which YOU (Believers) were Taught, whether by Word or Our (Jesus’ Disciples) Epistle. Now May Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and Our God (God Almighty) and Father (God Almighty), who has Loved Us (Believers) and Given Us (Believers) Everlasting Consolation and Good Hope by Grace, Comfort Your (Believers) Hearts and Establish YOU (Believers) in Every Good Word and Work.

Fellow Believers, as always, I encourage YOU to READ and STUDY The Holy Bible, for Yourselves, that God Almighty, Himself, will Reveal The True Meaning of these Scriptures to YOU. (Paul wrote more about this topic, in 1 Corinthians 15:50-58.) The Main Point We (Believers) should take, from these Scriptures is this, since We (Believers) have Put Our Trust, Our Faith, yes, Our Hope, in Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, We (Believers) KNOW, We (Believers) will be in God Almighty’s Immediate Presence, with Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, God Almighty’s Holy Angels, and All the rest of The Children (Fellow Believers) of God Almighty, Forever, for Eternity. Fellow Believers may each and every single one of YOU (Believers), find comfort, in this knowledge. Amen.
