Scripture Reading: II Thessalonians 2: 8

The first epistle to the Thessalonians was written to  remove .all anxiety concerning brethren who had died. To  remove this anxiety, Paul reviews the blessed truth of the  Rapture of the Church which is His Body. Paul writes to them  that they might no longer be ignorant of the fact that the  saints, whether dead or alive, will be caught up together to  meet the Lord in the air at His coming (I Thessalonians 4:13- 18),

Paul's second epistle was written upon his hearing of their  anxiety touching the living saints. He writes to assure them,  that in spite of what they might have heard from others, the  dreaded "day of the Lord" could not come until the saints are  gone. Only after the Church is gathered unto Christ and taken  out of this sin-cursed world will "the man of sin," the wicked  one, be revealed. Then will those who rejected the truth, along  with the wicked one, become the due objects of God's wrath.  Thus, Paul reassures the Thessalonians that they will be  separated from the scene of judgment and the revelation of  Satan and the unbelievers. .

The foremost concern is that we be not found in the  company of those "who believed not the truth." The moment  we believe the gospel-how that Christ died for our sins and  took the judgment of God for us- and put our trust in Him, we  pass from death unto life. We are saved-saved from our sins  and their penalty, saved from eternal separation from God,  and saved from the dreaded "day of the Lord." Once we have  put our trust in. the Saviour, we can have full assurance with  the Thessalonians that "God hath not appointed us to wrath,  but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ" (I  Thessalonians 5:9).

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
