The Final Judgement

Preacher: Paster Antonio Lou
Passage: 2 Thess 1:3-12 ESV
Service Type: Online English
Audio:

3 We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is
growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing. 4 Therefore
we ourselves boast about you in the churches of God for your steadfastness and faith in all your
persecutions and in the afflictions that you are enduring.
5 This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be considered worthy of the
kingdom of God, for which you are also suffering— 6 since indeed God considers it just to repay
with affliction those who afflict you, 7 and to grant relief to you who are afflicted as well as to us,
when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels 8 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. 9 They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of
the Lord and from the glory of his might, 10 when he comes on that day to be glorified in his
saints, and to be marveled at among all who have believed, because our testimony to you was
believed.
11 To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and
may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, 12 so that the name of
our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and
the Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Thess 1:3-12 ESV)
