1 Thessalonians 5:1-3

1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 (KJV)
1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For 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.

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 (KJV)
3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;
5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:

1 Thessalonians 3:7-10

1 Thessalonians 3:7-10 (KJV)
7 Therefore, brethren, we were comforted over you in all our affliction and distress by your faith:
8 For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord.
9 For what thanks can we render to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God;
10 Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?

Fellowship

Fellowship and praying with one another is something that the early church did often. And we are to not be any different today.

1 Thessalonians 2:10-13

1 Thessalonians 2:10-13 (KJV)
10 Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:
11 As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children,
12 That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

Exhorted To Walk Worthy

Every member of Christ’s church should walk worthy of their faith in Him. Otherwise, they are only saying they believe in Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 1:2-5

1 Thessalonians 1:2-5 (KJV)
2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
4 Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.
5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

When We Rise From The Grave

Those who brought people unto Jesus throughout their lifetime will be greatly rewarded. They will be like unto the stars of heaven.

Why I Pray

Be constant in prayer. Pray for your needs and other people’s also. Remember to thank God in the good times and bad.

Halloween Is The Day Of The Devil

Do not celebrate Halloween. It is of the devil. Stay in the light of Jesus and don’t allow the darkness to seep into your lives.

1 Thessalonians 4:16,17

1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 (KJV)
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

My Rapture Dream

God opened up my eyes to see His Second Coming in a dream. It was then that the rapture began for His elect.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (KJV)
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

The Rapture

With Christ’s return comes the rapture of the saints. Live your life for Jesus, that you may be included with those who are saved.

Mixing The World Into Church

Anybody who teaches their children about Santa Claus is not following Jesus. Those in Christ don’t teach lies to their kids.

Halloween Is the Devil’s Holiday

Did you not know that the bible says, “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” (Ephesians 5:11)

1 Thessalonians 3:3,4

1 Thessalonians 3:3,4 (KJV)
3 That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.
4 For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.

The Life Of A Disciple

There are also two other things that a disciple of Christ ought to be doing daily. The third thing is prayer for others.

1 Thessalonians 2:11-13

1 Thessalonians 2:11-13 (KJV)
11 As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children,
12 That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

The Cost Of Being A Disciple

The Lord still works in our lives now and still sends His disciples out into the world, in order to lead people out of bondage and unto Him.

Free From Addiction

Addiction is sin and in Christ, these sins are destroyed, that we may follow Him to the fullest. As mentioned, addictions come in all forms but a growing trend among young people is vaping.

Be Vigilant And Sober Minded

We are to “watch and be sober”. Understand that the night crowd can easily lead you astray, so stay vigilant and go to bed when it is night.

Praise Ye The Name Of The Lord

Lift your hands high and worship the Lord. Sing out in joyous praises to Jesus, our Savior. Allow your love to come out.
