The Will of God – 1 Thessalonians 4

1 Thessalonians 4:1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and  exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of  us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would  abound more and more. 


1 Thessalonians 4:2 For ye know what  commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. 

1 Thessalonians 4:3 For  this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye  should abstain from fornication: 

1 Thessalonians 4:4 That every one of  you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification  and honour; 

1 Thessalonians 4:5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as  the Gentiles which know not God: 

1 Thessalonians 4:6 That no man go  beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that  the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have  forewarned you and testified. 

1 Thessalonians 4:7 For God hath not called  us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. 

1 Thessalonians 4:8 He therefore  that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also  given unto us his holy Spirit. 

1 Thessalonians 4:9 But as touching  brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye  yourselves are taught of God to love one another. 

1 Thessalonians 4:10  And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all  Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase  more and more; 

1 Thessalonians 4:11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to  do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as  we commanded you; 

1 Thessalonians 4:12 That ye may walk honestly  toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of  nothing.

1 Thessalonians 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren,  concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even  as others which have no hope. 

1 Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that  Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in  Jesus will God bring with him. 

1 Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto  you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and  remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them  which are asleep. 

1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend  from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,  and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise  first: 

1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be  caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord  in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 

1 Thessalonians 4:18  Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
