2 Thessalonians 1:10-2:9

McGee gives his take on Paul's discourse on the timing of the Rapture of the Church and the second coming of Christ.

2 Thessalonians 1:1-3

What's the difference between God's punishment and God's discipline? Paul encourages the persecuted church at Thessalonica that they were being disciplined now, but they will be rewarded, and the wicked punished, at the second coming of the Lord Jesus.

2 Thessalonians 1:1-3

Paul wrote this second letter to the suffering church at Thessalonica, to answer a mistaken idea they had about the timing of the coming Rapture.

1 Thessalonians 5:11-28

Paul finishes his first letter to the church at old Thessalonica with basic admonitions to keep the faith, keep the love flowing, and act worthy of the name of Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

Jesus's return could happen at any time. When the world is saying "peace and safety," sudden destruction will come upon them. Christians are warned to keep our relationship with Jesus fresh and up to date, so we are ready when HE comes!

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Here is the famous section about the Rapture of the Church. Jesus is coming again, in the clouds, with a shout and the sound of a loud trumpet, and will snatch away all true believers to heaven. This is called "the blessed hope" of the Christian!

1 Thessalonians 4:13

How Christians ought not be worried about loved ones who have "fallen asleep"… that Christians have a "blessed hope" of a resurrection after we die.

1 Thessalonians 4:3-12

Paul reminds the believers of our responsibility to make the Gospel look good in the world, by living decent and moral lives.

1 Thessalonians 3:13-4:8

Living to please the Lord rather than please ourselves. Knowing the Lord is ready to reward us, should encourage us to live pure lives.

1 Thessalonians 3:1-13

The church in Thessalonica, while beset with persecution, was visited by Paul's disciple Timothy, who encouraged Paul with a good report about the church's status.

1 Thessalonians 2:14-20

Persecution came to the believers in Thessalonica, and it solidified them into sort of a "band of brothers." But persecution serves to strengthen the church as well, and these folks remained faithful in spite of the constant pressure.
