The Word Working In You #5

1st Thessalonians - The Word Working in You - Uniontown PA 2007

Deliverance is an ongoing work. Rut 4:8-17 out of sorrow and suffering is blessing. The Thessalonians are ascribed the strongest Hebrew word for faith "Qawah" (1Th 1:9). (). The tribulation is referred to as "wrath to come" -- wrath of man Satan, and God. 2 days to be distinguished: (1) "Day of Christ" for believers (1Th 2:19-20, 1Th 3:13 - deliverance, rejoicing, resurrection, joyous) - the rapture; The dead in Christ rise first (1Th 4:13-18; 2Co 5:8). We meet them in the air; (2) The "Day of the Lord" for unbelievers (1Th 5:1-3 gloom, fear, judgment); "comes as a thief in the night" (1Th 5:2-4). "Whether we wake or sleep" - faithful and carnal believers live forever with Him (1Th 5:10).

The Word Working in You' is a study in 1st Thessalonians recorded at Uniontown PA on 19-20 October 2007. The primary focus of the Paul's epistles to the Thessalonians written A.D. 50-51 is Christian living in light of eternity which results in balance. The 'bookends' of 1Th 1:3 and 1Th 5:8 reveal the book's theme: the well-balanced Christian life. The book also teaches that God's Word works through faith. Interestingly this epistle is closely related in content to the Old Testament book of Ruth which provides a perfect biblical illustration of the practical truths of this book.
