1 1 2 THESSALONIANS 1:4F “TO YOU WHO ARE TROUBLED, REST, WHEN THE LORD JESUS IS REVEALED FROM HEAVEN, IN FLAMING FIRE, TAKING VENGEANCE ON THOSE THAT KNOW NOT GOD, AND THAT OBEY NOT HIS COMMANDMENTS. WHO SHALL BE PUNISHED WITH EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD…”

2 2 PAUL AND THE HOPE OF ISRAEL PAUL SAID HIS ESCHATOLOGY WAS NOTHING BUT “THE HOPE OF ISRAEL” ACTS 24:14F—MOSES AND PROPHETS ACTS 26:6F HOPE OF 12 TRIBES ACTS 28:16F– THE HOPE OF ISRAEL MORE ON THIS MOMENTARILY!

3 3 WHAT THE TEXT SAYS THESSALONIANS BEING PERSECUTED THESSALONIANS PROMISED RELIEF (ANESIS) FROM THAT REAL LIFE PERSECUTION. AT THE PAROUSIA OF JESUS CHRISTTHAT RELIEF TO COME AT THE PAROUSIA OF JESUS CHRIST

4 4 THE PERSECUTION PRESENT PARTICIPIAL FORM OF THILIPSIS- FOUR TIMES PERSECUTION FOR THE NAME OF CHRIST45 TIMES IN NT—PERSECUTION FOR THE NAME OF CHRIST THLIPSIS IS NOT CANCER, HEART ATTACKS, FINANCIAL PROBLEMS, OR TEENAGE KIDS!!THLIPSIS IS NOT CANCER, HEART ATTACKS, FINANCIAL PROBLEMS, OR TEENAGE KIDS!!

5 5 1 THES 2 AND 2 THES 1 WRITTEN TO THE SAME CHURCH WRITTEN ABOUT THE SAME PROBLEM (THLIPSIS) SAME PROMISE GIVEN RELIEF FROM PERSECUTION- AT THE PAROUSIA, WHEN ISRAEL JUDGED, FOR PERSECUTING THE SAINTS!!

6 6 THE RELIEF / REST NOT REWARD-“REST” FROM ANESIS. IN ALL OCCURRENCES, IT IS RELIEF— NOT REWARD--FROM THE PRESSURE INDICATED BY THLIPSIS. THESSALONIANS UNDER THLIPSIS OF PERSECUTION FOR CHRIST’S SAKE. PAUL PROMISED RELIEF FROM THAT PERSECUTION!

7 7 THE CHOICES BEFORE US DID PAUL LIE? DID PAUL FAIL AS A PROPHET? HE SAID THESSALONIANS WOULD RECEIVE RELIEF FROM PERSECUTION “WHEN THE LORD JESUS IS REVEALED.” DID JESUS COME AND GIVE RELIEF TO THESSALONIANS?

9 9 ARGUMENT 1 THESS. 4:13-18 AND 2 THESS. 1:4F SPEAK OF SAME TIME AND EVENT. BUT 2 THESS. 1 IS THE SAME AS 1 THESS 2:15F 1 THESS. 2:15F = A.D. 70 THEREFORE, 1 THESS. 4:13F = A.D. 70.

10 10 ARGUMENT THE DEAD (SOME OF THE DEAD), OF 1 THS. 4 WERE MARTYRS (1 THS. 2:15; 2 THS. 1) THE MARTYRS WERE TO BE VINDICATED IN A.D. 70 (MT ) THEREFORE THE DEAD OF 1 THS. 4 WOULD BE VINDICATED IN A.D. 70

11 11 THE CHOICES IF CHRIST DID NOT COME WHILE THEY WERE BEING PERSECUTED, AND GIVE THEM RELIEF: PAUL LIED OR HE FAILED STILL ALIVE AND BEING PERSECUTEDTHESSALONIANS STILL ALIVE AND BEING PERSECUTED THESSALONIANS BEING PERSECUTED AFTER DEATH!! THE RELIEF WOULD COME AT THE PAROUSIA-- THIS MEANS THE THLIPSIS WOULD BE ONGOING AT THE PAROUSIA
