1 Thessalonians 5:12-28 - Part 4 (1 Thessalonians 5:12-28)Tim Douglass, February 2, 2020
Part of the 1 Thessalonians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
It always seems like we hit real challenging things when we get deep into Paul’s instructions. There’s a lot of stuff that is either hard to do or hard to understand – often both. In this passage, when we get to verse 19, we hit the first of several of those challenging bits. Over the years a lot has been written and said about what exactly Paul means by “quenching the Spirit”. I’m not sure that there has really been a definitive answer, but we need to explore what we do know.

1 Thessalonians 5:12-28
12And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; 13And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves. 14Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 15See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 16Rejoice evermore. 17Pray without ceasing. 18In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19Quench not the Spirit. 20Despise not prophesyings. 21Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22Abstain from all appearance of evil. 23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. 25Brethren, pray for us. 26Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss. 27I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren. 28The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. (KJV)
