2 Thessalonians Series: “In Flaming Fire”

October 17th, 2008

A Preview of the Coming Judgment)

“…in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do

not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel

of our Lord Jesus”

(2 Thessalonians 1:8)

Introduction: 2 Thessalonians 1:5-12 is a section of Scripture about “the righteous judgment of God” (1:5).

I. This Judgment is Righteous for 6 reasons

A. 1:5 – ________________________

B. 1:6 – ________________________

C. 1:7 – ________________________

D. 1:8 – ________________________

E. 1:9 – ________________________

F. 1:10 – _______________________

II. “To this end…” (What you can do, you should do) –

A. 1:11 – “every __________ /every __________”

B. 1:12 – “glorified in ______ and you in ______”

Conclusion: In our times, what is righteous is often determined by a popular polling of the people. What is “fair” by today’s standards may suggest that this scripture is wrong and unfair. Nevertheless, when Jesus returns, there will be no polls taken; only the righteous judgment of God (2 Tim. 2:19). Those who have suffered for Christ will understand; for they alone are worthy of his calling, [by God and for God] (1:11).
