I Thessalonians 4-13-5-11 Encouraged and Informed – Children of the Light
Today we see Paul addressing the concerns of the church in Thessalonica about Jesus’ Second Coming. Their pagan culture was obsessed with the hopelessness of death, and we have concluded Paul is answering the concern that recently deceased believers are going to miss Christ’s Second Coming. The instructions are …don’t worry like non-believers about death. Prepare not for Christ’s return, prepare for the time before Christ’s return. Prepare for the fight against the darkness.
