1 Thessalonians Chapter 1

1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;

3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

4 Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.

5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

6 And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost:

7 So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.

8 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.

9 For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;

10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

Vs10 "even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come." I see two possible fulfilments of this prophetic utterance. The destruction of Jerusalem in circa 67-70 a.d. And the final deliverance for those His own, at His return. Regardless, we can thank God for such a deliverance. For to me, being prone to doing stupid things...He is first among all other things, my God of Deliverance.

Doug; You are absolutely right! And anyone who wishes to follow Jesus in this world ALREADY KNOWS that we are set to encounter tribulation and opposition and persecution! The more we become transformed and sanctified, the more we amend our ways and our doings to be REALLY men and women after God's own heart,: the world and the wicked are NOT going to congratulate us and leave us alone!
