Prayerfully Turn Your Authorized King James Bible Versions To 1 Thessalonians 2:1
1 Thessalonians 2:1 For yourselves, brethren, know our entrance in unto you, that it was not in vain:
1 Thessalonians 2:2 But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention. 1 Thessalonians 2:3 For our exhortation [was] not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile: 1 Thessalonians 2:4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.
The "Deceit", "Uncleanness", "Guile" And Other Words That Paul Uses In 1 Thessalonians Chapter 2 Refer To The Law(s) (Commandments And Ordinances) Of Moses.

Paul Reminds The Thessalonians That He And His Brethen Preached Christ's Gospel To Them During Great Sufferings (Persecutions).
Christians Must Be Able To Boldly Preach And Teach God's Word In A Spirit Of Meekness (1 Corinthians 4:21; Galatians 6:1).
Christians Must Avoid Deceit, Uncleanness or Guile In Their Gospel Message.
Christians Must Please God Not Humans When They Speak God's Word.
God's Biblical Word Will Expose What's Really In A Person's Heart. Some People Attempt To "Set Up Their Own Righteousness". The Bible Exposes Such Falsehood. The Person Will Either Repent And Obey The Bible Or Continue In Self Righteous Damnation (Hebrews 4:11-12; John 17:17; Psalm 119:105; Matthew 12:1-12; Job 1:1, 8; Job 2:3; Job 25:4; Job 9:2; Job 4:17; Job 35:2; Job 38:1-15; Job 42:1-6; Matthew 5:20; Matthew 23:1-39; Matthew 7:13-29; Romans 3:1-26; Romans 5:17-21; Romans 8:4-10; Romans 9:30-32; Romans 10:3-4; Romans 10:5-10; Romans 14:17).
1 Thessalonians 2:5 For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God [is] witness: 1 Thessalonians 2:6 Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor [yet] of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ.
The "Cloke Of Covetousness" Refers To Mosaic Law Keepers And/Or "Holy" Men Who Manipulated God Seekers For Their Own "glory" And Wealth (Fame And Fortune) (Matthew 23:1-39).

1 Thessalonians 2:7 But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children: 1 Thessalonians 2:8 So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.
Christians Should Always Be Loving And Caring Whenever They Relate To Other People. Christians Are Never To Be "Know It Alls" Or Judgmental (Matthew 7:1-5).
1 Thessalonians 2:9 For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God. 1 Thessalonians 2:10 Ye [are] witnesses, and God [also], how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe: 1 Thessalonians 2:11 As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father [doth] his children, 1 Thessalonians 2:12 That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
The Apostle Paul Worked Employment For Income. He Did Not Expect The Church To Pay His Way. He Did Not Want Anything To Distract From The Gospel Of Jesus Christ (God) (Acts 18:1-3).
Christians Must Be Holy As God Is Holy To Enter Heaven (1 Thessalonians 3:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:7; Hebrews 12:10-14).
1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received [it] not [as] the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
Any Christian Who Does Not Believe ALL Of God's Holy Bible (Holy Word) Must Repent And Diligently Seek Ways To Cultivate Unshakeable Faith In God's Holy Word. This Is Why It's Essential To Use A God Approved Bible Such As The Authorized King James 1611 Version. This Ministry Strives To Preach And Teach God's Word Especially With It's End Time Prophetic Nature. This Is The Obligation Of The Men And Woman Of God. God's Holy Word Is Supernatural And Will Transform Anyone Who Utilizes It And Puts Faith In It (Matthew 4:17; Psalm 119:105; John 17:17; Hebrews 4:11-12; Psalm 119:1-176; John 15:10-15; Revelation 22:18-20; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 19:10; Ephesians 6:10-18; Hebrews 11:5-6).
1 Thessalonians 2:14 For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they [have] of the Jews:
Paul Reflected On The Fact That Bible Obeying Christians May Suffer From Their Own (Matthew 10:35).
1 Thessalonians 2:15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: 1 Thessalonians 2:16 Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.
God Will Avenge These False Prophets Who Obstructed His Kingdom Growth And Who Persecuted And Killed Holy People Of God (Revelation 17:1-17; Matthew 23:1-39).
Paul Also Added The Fact That If A Person Does Not Hear The Word Of God To Repent That They Won't Be Saved. It Is Essential That We Christians Preach This Good News To Everyone (Matthew 28:18-20).
1 Thessalonians 2:17 But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire.

1 Thessalonians 2:18 Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.
Satan Hindered Us-This Prophetically Refers To The Great Tribulation (Short) Where Satan Is Allowed To Greatly Trod Upon Disobedient "Left Behind" Christians Until They Fully Accept The Blood Of Jesus Christ Which Is Grace, Love And Eternal Life. This Is The "WinePress" (Revelation 14:1-20; Matthew 23:37-39; Luke 21:20-24; Daniel 7:25; Revelation 12:1-17; Revelation 13:1-18; Revelation 17:1-17).
1 Thessalonians 2:19 For what [is] our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? [Are] not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? 1 Thessalonians 2:20 For ye are our glory and joy.
After The Greet Tribulation Jesus Will Come With His Saints To Finally Crush Satan's Head (Kingdom) And Save (Deliver) The Repentant Saints Still Upon The Earth (Revelation 19:1-21; Jude 1:14-25; Romans 16:20; Genesis 3:14-16; Luke 21:20-38; 2 Peter 3:1-18; Revelation 21:1-5).
Praise God For His Goodness And Wisdom! May We Christians ALL Obey God's Holy Word Now So We ALL Can Enter Heaven At Rapture And Not Experience God's Great Tribulation! Praise God!
