ESV Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day
August 14
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
16 “Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.”
*Read 2 Thessalonians 2 ; In many ways 2 Thessalonians 2 is one of the most important chapters in the NT Eschatology!  Here eschatology is set by Paul into the central life and movement of the whole Church, from his time unto ours and the end of the age. And the Second Coming & Rapture (“our gathering together to Him”, 2 Thess. 2: 1) of the Church is not just an apocalyptic event, but our Blessed Hope and sure reality!  (Titus 2: 14) And whether alive or dead at the Second Coming & Rapture, then risen all and glorified, every member of the Church and Body of Christ will be there!  (Revelation 19: 7-16, etc.)

  1. As I have said many times, I am Post-Trib on the Rapture, as the Greek grammar surely supports: “As to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to HIM.” (2 Thess. 2: 1)

    • And as we can see too from many other Scriptures, National Israel and especially the Remnant of believing Jews will also be quite involved, (Zech. 14: 4-9 ; Matt. 24: 29-31 ; Rev. 21: 2-21, etc.)

      • And yes, I take a real Jewish interpretation “first” in Matthew’s Gospel, this surely appears obvious! (Matt. 23: 39 / chap. 25: 1-13)

        *Btw “The Son of Man” surely has a Jewish flavor first! (Daniel 7: 13-14)
