1 Thessalonians 5 Bible Study on the Tribulation Rapture and End Times
1 Thessalonians chapter 5 verse number 1,the Bible reads, quot;But of the times and the seasons brethren, you have no need that Iwrite unto you, for yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thiefin the night.quot; When we look at this verse, it's obvious that we're continuing somethingthat was just being spoken, because it says, quot;But at the times and the seasons brethren,you have no need that I write unto you,quot; and the obvious question is, the times and theseasons of whaté What are we talking abouté If you remember, we just finished up in 1Thessalonians chapter 4 with the run down of Jesus Christ coming in the clouds and allthe believers being caught up together in
the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, whatis commonly known as the rapture. In fact 1 Thessalonians chapter 4 is the most famousrapture passage that people would point to as being they clearest description of thetrumpet sounding, quot;The dead in Christ rise first, and we which are alive and remain shallbe caught up together with them in the clouds.quot; Look at the end of verse 17 there. quot;To meetthe Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Therefore, comfort one anotherwith these words, but .quot; You see that at the beginning of chapter five. That's whatwe're connected to. quot;Comfort one another with these words, but of the time and the seasonsbrethren, you have no need that I write unto
you.quot;So, the times and the seasons of whaté The times and the seasons of when the rapturewill take place. The times and the seasons of Jesus Christ coming in the clouds and thetrumpet sounding. He says, quot;Of the times and the seasons brethren, you have no need thatI write unto you, for yourself know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thiefof the night.quot; This sentence only makes sense if the day of the Lord and the rapture areboth happening at the same time. If those two things had different timing, then thiswould make absolutely no sense for God to say, quot;Here's what's going to happen at therapture, but of the times and the seasons
brethren, you have no need that in write untoyou, because let me tell you about a totally unrelated event and when it's going to happen.quot;That wouldn't really make any sense, would itéObviously this is a continuation. He describes rapture, and here's the thing. In chapter4, there is no discussion of the timing, because it's all just a discussion of where your departedloved ones are, and how they are going to be brought with Christ, and how we're goingto be caught up together with them. There's no timing given. In Chapter 5, he gets intothe timing and he says, quot;You don't need me to write it to you, because you already knowthe timing.quot; You already know that the day
of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.Verse three, quot;For when .quot; When has to do with the timing, quot;when they shall say peaceand safety then sudden destruction cometh upon them as travail upon a woman with childand they shall not escape, but you brethren are not in darkness that that day should overtakeyou as a thief.quot; So, this day is clearly bad for some peopleand good for others. For those that are not saved, he said it's going to come upon themas a thief in the night, and it's going to be sudden destruction coming upon them, buthe says unto us, we're not in darkness that that day should overtake us as a thief. So,Christ is not coming as a thief in the night
to those that are saved. He is coming as athief in the night to the unsaved. Notice when he says here, that that day should overtakeyou as a thief. Notice, he doesn't say, quot;You're not even going to be here for that day, you'realready going to be gone.quot; He doesn't say that, does heé No. He just says, it's notgoing to take you as a thief because you are of the light. You are awake. You see thiscoming, and we'll get in to that a little bit later, but what I want to point out hereis that the timing of the rapture is the same timing as the timing of the day of the Lord,and the day of the Lord is a major event that the Bible talks a lot about in both the OldTestament and the New Testament.
The Holy Bible Book 66 Revelation KJV Dramatized Audio
The Revelation of St. John the Divine Chapter 1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which Godgave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sentand signified it by his angel unto his servant John: who bare record of the word of God,and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is hethat readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things whichare written therein: for the time is at hand.
John to the seven churches which are in Asia:Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; andfrom the seven Spirits which are before his throne; and from Jesus Christ, who is thefaithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings ofthe earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hathmade us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and theyalso which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Evenso, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning
and the ending, saith the Lord, which is,and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. I John, who also am your brother, and companionin tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is calledPatmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on theLord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, saying, I am Alpha and Omega,the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the sevenchurches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and untoThyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. And I turned to see thevoice that spake with me. And being turned,
I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in themidst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garmentdown to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairswere white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; andhis feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as thesound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth wenta sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me,saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and
the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead;and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Write the things which thou hast seen, andthe things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; the mystery of the sevenstars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The sevenstars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawestare the seven churches. Chapter 2 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write;These things saith he that holdeth the seven
stars in his right hand, who walketh in themidst of the seven golden candlesticks; I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience,and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say theyare apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: and hast borne, and hast patience,and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhatagainst thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thouart fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, andwill remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. But this thou hast, thatthou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans,
