quick destruction

1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 (JDV)

1 Thessalonians 5:1 About the times and the seasons: Brothers and sisters, you do not need anything to be written to you
1 Thessalonians 5:2 because you yourselves know quite well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.
1 Thessalonians 5:3 When they are saying, “Peace and security,” then quick destruction will come on them, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

quick destruction

Paul had been encouraging the Thessalonians who had lost loved ones by reminding them of the hope of Christ’s return. He will come suddenly and violently back to this planet, with booming shouts and loud trumpet blasts. His coming is certain and swift, but nobody knows when.

This same truth which is a comfort for the believer should send shivers down the unbeliever’s spine. This swift resurrection and reunion for the saint also means swift retribution for the reprobate. The Lord will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night, like labor pains on a pregnant woman. The result will be quick destruction, from which there is no escape.

Lord, your coming will be awesome for us, but awful for the unbelievers all around us. Show us how to rescue them from the quick destruction that awaits them.
