Hebrews 10-Suffering-Birth pangs-Parousia in a "very, very little while!"
Proper hermeneutic in 2 Thessalonians 1 proves that the Olivet Discourse cannot be divided!
Paul was clear that the Thessalonians would receive relief from the persecution "when the Lord is revealed from heaven."
Sam Frost turns Isaiah 40 180% out from what it actually says!
2 Thessalonians 1 demonstrates the first century fulfillment of the Olivet Discourse-- and Covenant Eschatology!
Paul's discussion of the "momentary" suffering is most commonly taken totally out of context!
Preaching, resulting in persecution, was a first century reality!
Jesus said his first century disciples would be delivered to persecution-- the epistles record the fulfillment!
To admit- as Frost does- that John the Baptizer was Elijah, demands that the resurrection was in the first century!
Paul told the Thessalonians they were "appointed" to suffer. Why?
Why did Paul say, "We must, through much tribulation, enter the kingdom"?
Identifying the persecutors and the persecuted in the Olivet Discourse is very important!
