A Short Study of 1st Thessalonians 5:2
“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”
(1st Thessalonians 5:2)
A true believer does not desire to know more than God Almighty wants him to know.
While others expend countless hours studying world events, trying to somehow connect them to the return of Christ (some to the point of naming the exact date), and then making those events to be the centerpoint of a “gospel” message, the believer studies the Word which is the revelation of Christ.
While a believer is certainly watching expectantly for the return of his Lord, he is not taken up with the events surrounding that return. A believer is taken up only with the Christ Who is returning.
