2 Thessalonians 1:1-10 (2 Thessalonians 1:1-10)Tim Douglass, February 23, 2020
Part of the 2 Thessalonians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Second Thessalonians is a companion letter or follow-on letter to 1 Thessalonians. But why does Paul write two letters to the same church covering much of the same material so close together? As we begin to explore this letter we can see that Paul has some additional information about their condition and almost certainly is responding to how they received and understood (or misunderstood) his first letter. Once again the letter centers around the return of Christ, but this time Paul’s emphasis is a bit different.

2 Thessalonians 1:1-10
1Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: 2Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth; 4So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: 5Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: 6Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; 7And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 10When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. (KJV)
