But they have been easily deceived by others. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2 , Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us , as though the day of Christ had come. They have been informed saying that Christ had come already. They even circulated letter of confirmation as if it had come from Apostle Paul! So people were worried about the loved ones those who were dead. So, Paul reminds them not to worry and he reminds them about what he spoke to them while he was with them. 2 Thessalonians 2:5 , Do you not remember that when I was still with you I to

Basic Theology: Glorification - Forever with the Lord

Previous: Glorification  1. Forever with the Lord. The chief attraction of future glory will be that we shall be with Him, our beloved Lord and Saviour  John 14:3 , And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 , Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Now the Lord is with us (Isaiah 43:2; Psalm 23:4; Hebrews 13:5-6), but then we shall be with Him! The unbeliever cannot enter into this at all, and only those who want Him with them now will desire to be with Him in His glory. 2. Conformed to become like Jesus Christ. We shall not only be with Him, but we shall be like Him.  1 John 3:2 , Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. God’s pro

Basic Theology: Glorification

 Glorification We have seen the following in sequence on the subject of Basic Theology.      ✓ Election,      ✓ Redemption,      ✓ Imputation,      ✓ Adoption,      ✓ Justification,      ✓ Indwelling, and      ✓ Sanctification. Now the future one which will take place in our life is Glorification. Romans 8:29-30 , And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. God’s purpose, or intention, for every one of His children, have been addressed here.      ➢ Foreknew,      ➢ Predestined,      ➢ Called,      ➢ Justified, and      ➢ Glorified. The guarantee of our eternal security is the fact that if we are now truly the Lord’s then our c

Basic Theology: Sufficiency of Scriptures Part 05 - Conclusion

 Conclusion: Previous: 6. Judgement of the Lord Psalms 19:10-13 , More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward. 12 Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults. 13 Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, And I shall be innocent of [g]great transgression. 1. Precious To have the Word of God is more valuable than all the precious metal. The Word of God is the greatest possession one can have in his life. It is supremely valuable for it leads to the path of joy. 2. Pleasure Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Nothing is as sweet, nothing is as pleasurable, nothing is as enriching, nothing is as personally meaningful. It brings the sweetest things of earth. There’s no pleasure in life like the pleasure and the joy hours spent in the Word of God. S
