passage: 2Thes 1:1-1:10
Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians
in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace,
from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We are bound to thank God
always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth
exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other
aboundeth; So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for
your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that
ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God,
that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also
suffer: Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation
to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us,
when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty
angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God,
and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be
punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord,
and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified
in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our
testimony among you was believed) in that day.
passage: Luke 17:20-17:25
And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should
come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with
observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold,
the kingdom of God is within you. And he said unto the disciples, The
days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of
man, and ye shall not see it. And they shall say to you, See here; or,
see there: go not after them, nor follow them. For as the lightning,
that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the
other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.
