2 Thessalonians 1:3-8

We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other, so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure, which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer; since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Wow! Quite a sentence, huh? You will be persecuted. Jesus tells us so in John 16:33: "In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." Know that you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God when you suffer with faith and patience. Know also that God will give you rest when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven. Those who do not know God and who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, are most likely the ones persecuting you, and they will be punished. Pity them. Pray for them.

God Bless You!

--FEATURED POEM:

Jesus, Lover of my soul,
Let me to Thy bosom fly,
While the nearer waters roll,
While the tempest still is high;
Hide me, O my Savior, hide,
Till the storm of life is past;
Safe into the haven guide;
O receive my soul at last!

-Charles Wesley
