II Thessalonians 1

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

In II Thessalonians we will see two things. First, that the Church there was not perfect but a model Church and one to be emulated. Also we see how the book is doctrinal about the Christian’s hope – the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Chapter one we will see specifically how God will be the righteous judge of those who oppress His people today, and how we who stand for God today will then be glorified.

Verses:
II Thessalonians 1:1-12
& others.

Six times in the Church Epistles, God exclaims that He does not want us ignorant. The general context of when He uses this emphatic statement is about evils which beset people and the information that follows is to prevent us from falling into the evils associated of ignorance. In this teaching, we examine these six topics which, as Christians, we should endeavor to comprehend more fully.

II Corinthians 4 – Persecution unto Glorification

Thursday, February 24th, 2011


February 24, 2011

There are two opposing forces fighting for us, the one true God and the god of this world. Both promise things and both bring them to pass but only our one true God brings good, perfect, loving things. He brings peace and contentment. He brings joy and riches. He sent his one true son the Christ Jesus that we may have truth and life and riches. We are earthen vessels, corruptable and fleeting, that we may not say our power is from us but rather that it is from God eternal; the excellency of our power is of God.
So not matter what we face let us turn our thought and focus to God and let our mouths be full of His grace and power that we may spread His glory rather than the that of lesser idols.
