The Scripture makes it very clear that as we focus on purity we experience power from above. Paul stressed this in his final letter to his understudy Timothy. “Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter [i.e., “iniquity”], he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work” (2Ti 2:21). How? The process is simple: God the Father works through the Son. The Son works through the Holy Spirit. The Spirit works through the Word. The Word works through the believer. The believer works through living faith.

The Word Working In You #6

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

Element of a ancient Jewish wedding are in communion (and the rapture). The bread and the cup were in the supper of betrothal of a man and his potential bride. If the bride accepted the bread and cup, the two were betrothed. The groom would then construct a house, but until the Father said it was ready, "no man knows the day or the hour". A friend of the groom would precede and announce the coming of the groom loudly (a trumpet blast). The bride would gather her things and run out. Wealthy grooms would be on a white horse. Family and friends of the bride and of the groom then would meet at a wedding fest that would last seven days.

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.
