Morning Devotional & Study/ THE DAY OF THE LORD (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11)

Good morning, my brothers and sisters in Christ.


Morning Devotional & Study/ THE DAY OF THE LORD (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11)


Summary:


Jared led a discussion about the day of the Lord, using First Thessalonians, chapter 5, verse 2 as a starting point. He emphasized that the day of the Lord, which often refers to either Jesus's first or second coming, would come unexpectedly. Jared warned that Christians must be prepared for Christ's return so they can respond appropriately. The discussion ended with reading First Thessalonians, chapter 5, verses 1-11. Jared discussed the biblical passage from 1 Thessalonians about the return of the Lord, emphasizing that the Thessalonian Christians had been making their predictions about it. He explained that the return of the Lord would not be like a thief in the night, as it was not meant to be a surprise. Jared also discussed the concept of the church as the bride of Christ, referencing ancient Jewish wedding customs to illustrate the relationship. He concluded by referring to Matthew 24:36, which states that no one, not even the angels in heaven, knows the day or the hour of the Lord's return. Jared discussed the early Christians' belief that Jesus's return was imminent and their focus on restoring the kingdom of Israel. He explained that while the disciples were preoccupied with these earthly changes, Jesus established a spiritual kingdom. Jared emphasized the importance of being vigilant and prepared for the 'day of the Lord,' referencing various biblical passages. He concluded by expressing his hope that the discussion provided a better understanding of the concept. Jared discussed the biblical parallels between the days of Noah and the coming of the Son of Man, focusing on the theme of violence filling the earth. He emphasized the importance of remaining watchful without being obsessive about the exact timing of the Second Coming and encouraged actively seeking God's truth in the Scriptures. He also warned against false teachings and inspired communal living, pointing out the significant shift towards individualism today. He concluded by stating that the expiration date of the world is near, indicating that things are falling apart. Jared led a discussion about various religious topics, including prayer and the role of the Holy Spirit. He also mentioned the importance of evangelism and the concept of deacons. In the end, he announced that the topic for the next meeting would be Acts Chapter 6, focusing on the ordination of deacons. He also hinted at discussing Steven's story in Acts Chapter 7, but this may be divided into separate sessions due to its length.
