1 Thessalonians 5

Bible Reading
NotesPaul urges the Thessalonians to be vigilant, and sober, looking forward to the Day of the Lord, which will come like a thief in the night. Then, Paul urges the Thessalonians one last time to live at peace seeking the good of others not themselves, and blesses them with a final benediction. As a side, note, there is another reference here, given by Paul to armor of God. 1

  1. Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, (Ephesians 6:10-18 ESV) ↩︎
