AMEN to that!!!


2 Thessalonians 1:3 We 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;

2 Thessalonians 1:4 So 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:

2 Thessalonians 1:5 Which 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:

2 Thessalonians 1:6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;

2 Thessalonians 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

2 Thessalonians 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

2 Thessalonians 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

2 Thessalonians 1:10 When 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.

2 Thessalonians 1:11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:

2 Thessalonians 1:12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.


BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition


because

Mark 8:34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.


and remember the words of JESUS when speaking to us Christians in the end days

Mark 13:10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

Mark 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

Mark 13:12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.

Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Mark 13:15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:

Mark 13:16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.

Mark 13:17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

Mark 13:18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.

Mark 13:19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.

Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

Mark 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:

Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

JESUS HAS FORETOLD US ALL THINGS. HE LEFT NOTHING OUT. He tells us WE will be given up. WE will see the abomination of desolation standing...


We will be here "TO FULFIL ALL THE GOOD PLEASURE OF HIS GOODNESS AND THE WORK OF FAITH WITH POWER"

So we just need to be like DAVID, willing to walk in FAITH, not like the armies, to cowardly to even try.


Do not be deceived, for there are many false "CHRIST-ians" even now.

LIKE SHEEP TO THE SLAUGHTER. THAT IS WHAT IS WRITTEN.

Fear not those who kill the body. THAT IS WRITTEN.

So if anyone tries to SELL you a story that MAKES THAT NULL AND VOID, then don't BUY it. Don't be taken in by false doctrines that you can't find written in the words of God. Satan takes WHAT IS WRITTEN and twists it and asks the question YEA, HATH GOD SAID? Don't let 'the truth' you believe be something ALL MEN CAN'T READ but must be TAUGHT through the conclusions and wisdom of man. ASK TO SEE IT WRITTEN and if they can't produce it, don't believe it. Do you think with our capabilities of seeking out what is written from what is not that GOD is going to accept any excuses for willingly being ignorant?

How can GOD recompense those who trouble us, if we aren't here to be troubled?

Amen and praise the Lord!

1 Corinthians 15:19

“If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”

.
“Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.”
‭‭John‬ ‭18:36‬ ‭KJV‬

“far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:21-23‬ ‭KJV‬

“who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭18:30‬ ‭

it’s nice to know this world is temporary

Jesus is coming back
have you ever noticed , some have but others have never thought it through the old testsment foretold Christs first coming like we are waiting for him to come back , they were waiting on scripture like this to come to pass

“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭KJV‬‬

that was said about 750 years before he was born but the entire testsment is a reflection of ours forjindtsnce the prophets end with this foretelling

“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.”
‭‭Malachi‬ ‭3:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬

they were waiting for Jesus to come and we are waiting for Jesus to come Based on our testaments concluding promise

“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭22:12-13, 20‬ ‭KJV‬‬


I find that interesting the ot was waiting for Christs first coming who chi would fulfill thier covenant and the New Testament is waiting for his coming when his return will fulfill the gospel d. We testemwnt promised that have no end
