   Paul's Benedication for the Thessalonians
   2 Thessalonians 3:16-18
Sunday School,  August 18, 2013
As Paul closed his second letter to the Thessalonians he wanted them to experience the peace and presence of the Lord. The topics he addressed in this letter did not offer the world's kind of peace. Persecution, a phony letter with wrong information, and a person(s)in the fellowship living an unruly life, when dealt with biblically, would result with God's true peace. The letter was authentic and authoritative based on the token his personal signature.

   Mutual Prayer
   2 Thessalonians 3:1-5
Sunday School,  July 14, 2013
Any believer who seeks to serve the Lord will discover hindrance by the enemy of our souls. The ministry was very difficult in Corinth (Acts 18) and the Apostle Paul asks the saints in the church at Thessalonica to pray for those involved in the ministry among the Corinthian people. Paul desires them to pray that what God did in Thessalonica would be accomplished in Corinth as well. Mutual prayer is the title of this lesson because the paragraph begins with Paul asking for prayer from the saints at Thessalonica and ends with Paul praying for them. It is just as urgent that we regularly pray for one another as we seek to serve Christ.

   Introduction to Second Thessalonians
   2 Thessalonians 1:1-4
Sunday School,  May 12, 2013
First Thessalonians emphasizes Christ’s return for the saints while Second Thessalonians emphasizes the Day of the Lord, that time when God pours out His wrath against sin, sinners and sinful nations. Both epistles reveal who Jesus is and what He will do for saints and unsaved sinners. The purpose of the second letter relates to confusion concerning these two events. Someone wrote a letter to this young body of believers, forging Paul’s signature, telling them that the Day of the Lord had already come. Many of the saints, due to the intensive persecution against the church, thought that the forged letter must be true.

   The Church and the Coming of Christ
   Matthew 24; 1 Thessalonians 4-5; 2 Thessalonians 1-2
Wednesday Evening Service,  July 6, 2011
Many believe that the Lord will rapture the church before the Tribulation, and that the Rapture and Second Coming are two separate events. However, a look at the Olivet Discourse, especially in light of Paul's application of it to the church in the Thessalonian Epistles seems to indicate that the church will go through the Tribulation. At the very least, it is wise to be prepared for such a possibility.
