In the last days, the Bible says that those who are good will be despised, and those who are bad will be loved. Believer, how should we respond? We learn what the Bible says as Bro. Jeff continues to look at Paul’s words of wisdom to Timothy.
“Stop listening to the panic and listen to God’s Word,” Bro. Jeff advises. Why? Because God is sovereign! Christ’s purpose was divinely revealed to many, and to us. If you’ve not met the Savior, won’t you seek Him today?
Here, we see the contrast between the rejection, discouragement, and distress of a true man of God at the lack of diligence in believers, and the joyful encouragement and gratitude that comes from the faithful. Paul’s concern about the church having a firm foundation of faith is still relevant to us today.
If you were put on a stand in court, and all evidence was presented, is there evidence of real conversion…of a Biblical salvation experience? Continuing to explore Thessalonians 1, Bro. Jeff describes characteristics of genuine belief in Christ.
Paul revealed the progression a society takes when it rejects God; the resemblance to our society today is grievous. Bro. Jeff shares how a warning from Peter to those at Pentecost is still relevant today and encourages us with the deliverance that salvation provides.
