in 1 Thessalonians Study

Read 1 Thessalonians 5

It is a common mistake to confuse two separate occurrences having to
do with the end times. This particular passage deals with “The Day of
the Lord”. When referred to in the Old Testament “The Day of the Lord”
carried certain ideas about doom and destruction brought on by the
direct intervention by the Lord HImself in the affairs of men. The
Thessalonians were concerned that they would have to endure the
terrible things the Apostle had warned were coming. It is here that
Paul writes some very encouraging words reassuring these believers of
their special place in God’s plan.
