2 Thessalonians 1

Thanksgiving for Faith and Perseverance

1Paul and Silvanus and Timothy,

To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged, and the love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater; therefore, we ourselves speak proudly of you among the churches of God for your [a]perseverance and faith in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure. This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. [b]For after all it is only just [c]for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to give relief to you who are afflicted [d]and to us as well [e]when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with [f]His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10 when He comes to be glorified [g]in His [h]saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed. 11 To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will [i]count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power, 12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Knijga O Kristu

Druga poslanica Solunjanima 1

Neka vam je milost i mir od Boga Oca i od Gospodina Isusa Krista.

Ohrabrenje u progonstvu

Draga braćo i sestre, ne možemo a da uvijek ne zahvaljujemo Bogu za vas, za vašu vjeru koja jača i za vašu veliku međusobnu ljubav.

Ponosno govorimo drugim Božjim crkvama o vašoj postojanoj vjeri u progonstvima i u nevoljama koje trpite.

One su samo najava pravednoga Božjeg suda na kojemu će vas Bog proglasiti dostojnima svojega Kraljevstva za koje i trpite.

Bog će pravedno kazniti vaše progonitelje patnjom,

a vama progonjenima, kao i nama, dati spokoj kad se s neba objavi Gospodin Isus. On će doći s moćnim anđelima

i s plamenim ognjem te donijeti osvetu onima koji ne priznaju Boga i ne žele se pokoriti Radosnoj vijesti o našemu Gospodinu Isusu Kristu.

Bit će kažnjeni vječnom propašću, zauvijek odvojeni od Gospodnjega lica i od njegove silne slave

10 na dan kada on dođe primiti slavu i čast od svojega svetog naroda, od svih vjernika. Među njima ste i vi jer ste povjerovali našemu svjedočanstvu o njemu.

11 Zato se stalno molimo za vas, da vas Bog učini dostojnima života na koji vas je pozvao i da on svojom snagom dovrši svaku vašu dobru nakanu i svako dobro djelo -

12 da bi zbog vas svi slavili ime našega Gospodina Isusa te da i vi budete proslavljeni u njemu po milosti našega Boga i Gospodina Isusa Krista.
