Pastor David denHartog continues the Coming with His Saints series on end times. When there are difficulties, trials and heartaches in our lives, the temptation is to give up and not keep battling. We wonder if there really is a God. How do we bear up when we feel hopeless? Paul wrote 2 Thessalonians for people who were in severe trials and questioning their faith. They had misconceptions about the second coming of Jesus; specifically thinking it had already occurred. Paul corrects them by telling them three things that will take place during the day of the Lord. The purpose of prophetic study is motivation and hope….We already know the final score.
