1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11)Tim Douglass, December 29, 2019
Part of the 1 Thessalonians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
With the conclusion of our Advent series, we are returning to 1 Thessalonians this week. As we start into the last chapter we are really just continuing the discussion that Paul started back in 4:15 regarding the return of the Lord. More than just comfort in the knowledge that the dead will be raise, now he is talking about how we should live to be prepared for His return.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
1But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. (KJV)
