The FBI Bible Class

1st, 2nd
Thessalonians

 

Arguably the two most prophetic letters in the New Testament.

These are the “Rapture” letters, where we learn much about God’s plan for his elect, and the Day of the Lord.

Study with us!

1st/2nd Thessalonians

“Behold, I have told you before” — Jesus

Over the last few years, the FBI Bible Class has presented verse-by-verse studies in

All of these studies have led us to one place: A reasonably clear view of God’s purposes for our planet Earth. We see God’s provision for, and purposes toward,

  • God’s Elect (Christians)
  • Israel, God’s chosen nation
  • The nations (Gentiles)
  • The eventual reign of Jesus Christ, the Jewish Messiah, from the holy hill of Mount Zion, over the entire earth.
  • And more!

In this series, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, we hope to dig deep into God’s Word. These are highly prophetic epistles from the apostle Paul. What will we learn?

This is Part Two of Chapter Two.

Paul encourages the Thessalonian church. It’s full of new believers, they’re experiencing persecution, opposition, and they’re doing well!
Imagine a church where everyone is a new convert… and from that group you have to appoint leaders, deacons, etc.
This is a letter worth reading.

The apostle Paul gets serious about holy living, and a committed Christian life. This all comes as a prelude to introducing the Gathering of the Saints (the Rapture), which begins to be detailed here.

¬†YES, there’s a typo on the video banner. This is NOT Second, but First Thessalonians. Thanks to Adrian Monk for pointing this out.

We take time out to define and discuss THE DAY OF THE LORD.
Understanding this term (and time) is critical to understanding end-time events. One particular error by Pre-Tribulationists is that they (most, not all) believe the Day of the Lord begins when the “tribulation period” begins. That is, at the beginning of Daniel’s Seventieth Week.
This is an impossibility, which will be discussed in this video. The Day of the Lord begins sometime during the second half of the 7-years, bringing an end to the Great Tribulation.
Jesus said that if this did not happen, “there should no flesh be saved.” He does it for the elect, God’s people. Redeemed Gentiles and Jews.

Lots to learn in this intensely prophetic section. Jesus is coming again, and He can’t get here soon enough for me!

Paul goes pastoral in this part. After a heavy dose of prophetic teaching, he digs down into the Christian life. Very practical.
Of course, to my mind, the prophetic parts are just as practical. What a hope we have!

After tempting us with the Blessed Hope (the rapture) in the last chapter of 1 Thessalonians, Paul continues with more prophetic info.
This is a pastoral letter, but full of prophetic hope.

No other chapter in God’s Word has so influenced my understanding of the gathering of God’s people (the Rapture) as this one (2 Thessalonians Chapter 2).
The rapture position in this video may not represent the official position of Faith Baptist Church.
I take opportunity to do a short introduction to the Pre-Wrath Rapture position here.
This is my personal position, based on serious, prayerful and constant study of the Bible.

After all the high drama of the rapture, the Day of the Lord, Paul reaches a calming point. Of course, there’s that thing about lazy Christians coming…
