In 1 Thessalonians The Apostle Paul Firmly Support Biblical Doctrine. Christians Who Don't Want To Be Like The Thessalonians Will Not Enter Heaven At Rapture.
Prayerfully Turn Your Authorized King James Bible Versions To 1 Thessalonians 1:1
1 Thessalonians 1:1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians [which is] in God the Father and [in] the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace [be] unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul Greets The Church Of Thessalonians With The Goodness Of Father God And Christ.
1 Thessalonians 1:2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
Prayer Is An Excellent Source Of Spirtual Warfare And We Christians Should Pray Often (Ephesians 6:10-18; 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18).
1 Thessalonians 1:3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
Paul Immediately Reminded Christians To Have "Works" And "Labour(s)" Of Faith In Jesus Christ And Not In The Works Of Law (John 13:33-35; John 15:10-15; Romans 3:27; Romans 9:32; Galatians 2:16; Galatians 3:2-10; Romans 10:4; Matthew 5:15-18; 2 Corinthians 3:1-17; Galatians 5:16-26).
1 Thessalonians 1:4 Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.

1 Thessalonians 1:5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.
Paul Confidently Informs Christians That The Gospel Of Jesus' Apostles Was Proven By The Holy Ghost To Be God's Only True Gospel (Mark 1:1; Matthew 4:23; Matthew 9:35; Matthew 11:5; Matthew 24:14; Matthew 26:13; John 8:32-44; Revelation 12:1-17; Matthew 4:1-11).
1 Thessalonians 1:6 And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost:
To Become A Follower Of Jesus Christ Means To Be Born Again (Begotten) Of The Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) (John 3:1-8; John 3:9-16; John 4:24). To Become A Born Again Follower Of Jesus Christ Also Means To Incur "Much" Affliction(s). When Christians "Stay (Walk)" In The Spirit" This Affliction Will Cause Much Joy And Rejoicing (Acts 5:41; 2 Corinthians 12:1-14; Galatians 5:15-26).

1 Thessalonians 1:7 So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia. 1 Thessalonians 1:8 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.
Praise God! Macedonia And Achaia Heard Of The Sufferings And Faith Of The Thessalonian Church And Were Encouraged To Stand Strong In Faith For Jesus Christ! Praise God (Matthew 25:1-12; Matthew 7:13-29)!
Thessalonia's Persecution And Joy Caused The Macedonian And Achaian Churches To Loudly And Boldly Peach The Word Of The Lord. And This Preaching Spread So "Far" That Apostle Paul And His Visiting Brethen Did Not Have To "Speak Anything". Praise God!
May We Modern Day Christians Have The Same Faith And Conviction To Preach Jesus No Matter What The Outcome Is!
1 Thessalonians 1:9 For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;
God Is A Jealous God And Will Send Any "Idol" Worshippings To Hell (Exodus 20:1-21; 1 John 5:21).

1 Thessalonians 1:10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, [even] Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
Bible Obeying Christians Will Be Saved And Delivered (Raptured) From God's Wrath As God Starts The "Hour" Of Great Tribulation (Tempt, Temptation) (Matthew 25:1-12; Revelation 3:10-11; Matthew 4:1-11).
Wait For God's Son From Heaven-Directly Before God Starts The "Flood" Of The Great Tribulation Jesus Christ Will "Descend" From Heaven And "Catch Away (Take, Grab)" Bible Obeying Christians Into The "Air Of Clouds". Many Christians Call This Event The "Rapture" (Daniel 7:13-14; Daniel 7:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; 1 Corinthians 15:50-54; Matthew 26:58-64; Matthew 24:29-34; Daniel 11:40-44; Matthew 7:13-29).
Raised From The Dead-Bible Obeying Christians Must Believe In The Three Day Resurrection Of Jesus Christ From The Dead. Any Lack Of Faith In God's Holy Bible Will Lead To No Entrance (Left Behind) Into Heaven. This Is Why It's Essential That Christians Use God Approved Bibles Such As The Authorized King James 1611 Version (Revelation 22:18-20; John 15:10-15; Hebrews 4:11-12; John 1:1; Psalm 119:105; John 17:17; Matthew 20:19; Hebrews 11:5-6).
Anyone Calling Themselve A "Christian" Must Believe In The Third Day Resurrection Of Jesus Christ, His Soon Coming Again And The Pre Tribulation Rapture Of Jesus' Christian Church Which Is His Bride (Revelation 19:1-21). Otherwise They Are A Faithless "Hell Bound" False "Prophet (Christian) Or "Worker(s) Of Iniquity (Matthew 7:13-29)".
I Also Appreciate And Respect Apostle Paul's Direct And Upfront Approach To Bible Doctrine. Praise God For The Apostle Paul (Acts 9:15-16)!
