2 Thessalonians 1:7-Our Tribulations Will End At Jesus’ 2nd Coming

2 Thess

7 and to give relief to you who are afflicted with us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire

“and to give relief to you who are afflicted with us” As believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we will suffer, one in this way and the other in that because those who live for Christ will be attacked by the devil with temptations, afflictions, diseases, in special cases, and discouragement. 

However, our tribulations that come from the god [Satan, 2 Corinthians 4:4] of this world will cease in the 2nd coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Especially those who will suffer by the hands of the antichrist during the Great Tribulation. 

All of our troubles will end when Jesus comes to take us to be with Him so that we may find eternal rest.

2 Thessalonians 1:5-Those Who Suffer for Christ, Are Counted Worthy

2 Thess

5 This is an obvious sign of the righteous judgment of God, to the end that you may be counted worthy of God’s Kingdom, for which you also suffer. (WEB)

The sign of His righteous judgment [is found in verses 7, 9] will be the second coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He will come down with His heavenly army to punish those who have rejected His Word and for persecuting, killing and abusing His followers. 

Our suffering in this present age is to display our commitment, love, and dedication to the Lord Jesus Christ and the Scriptures. No matter what the world under the influence of the devil brings against us, through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we will not be moved from following Christ. 

Those who suffer and do not renounce their faith in Jesus Christ are counted worthy and will be rewarded at His second coming.
