PA252 II Thessalonians 3:1-18 mp3

In this message, we complete our study of Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians. Paul calls on them to pray for himself and his coauthors, for the glorification of the Word of God and their deliverance from wicked men. The Lord is faithful, who will guard their hearts and direct them into love and patience. They command them to withdraw from every brother who does not walk orderly or keep the traditions they gave. These were not working, but merely acting as busybodies. These should work for their own food, or else not eat. They should not get tired of doing good. As usual, he leaves them with grace.

PA251 II Thessalonians 2:8-17 mp3

In this message, we consider the epiphaneia of Christ’s parousia. Does this show that the epiphaneia is the same as the parousia every time it is mentioned? The lawless one comes with the power of Satan. Many are sent a strong delusion to believe the lie, but does this mean that they were treated unfairly by God sending them this delusion? Paul thanks God for the Thessalonians and prays that He will comfort their hearts and establish them in every good word and work.

PA250 II Thessalonians 1:11-2:8 mp3

In this message, Paul, Silas, and Timothy pray for the Thessalonians that God would count them worthy and Christ would be glorified in them. Concerning the Parousia of Christ and their gathering to Him, Paul wishes them not to be easily shaken in mind, even by a letter supposedly from Paul, that the day of the Lord had already come. That day will not come before an apostasy comes first and the man of sin is revealed. Paul had told them these things while he was with them, so they should know them. The Holy Spirit restrains this rebellion until He is taken out of the way to begin the tribulation period.

PA249 II Thessalonians 1:1-10 mp3

In this message, we begin considering the second letter from Paul, Silas, and Timothy to the Thessalonians. They thank God for the Thessalonians and boast to other ekklesias of their patience and faith in the persecutions they endure. God will repay tribulation to those who trouble them. An illustration of this is the trouble that those who know not God and obey not the gospel of Jesus Christ will face when Christ comes in flaming fire to take vengeance on them and to be glorified in His saints.
