Sermons on 2 Thessalonians
2 Thessalonians 1.3
— Dr Peter Masters | 11:00am | Sunday 24 November 2019
Paul's short yet dazzling unfolding of end-time events written to a young church in a place of fierce opposition. Starting themes are the duty of constant praise, and the unceasing exercise of faith. Here also is Paul's introduction to the Lord's return.
2 Thessalonians 1.11
Bible Study— Dr Peter Masters | 11:00am | Sunday 1 December 2019
In a single magnificent 'sovereign grace' verse, the apostle frames a prayer that three essential features of Christian living might be manifested in believing lives. Here is true conversion, plus the blessings of God's 'good pleasure', plus the divine work of building up our faith.
2 Thessalonians 2.1
— Dr Peter Masters | 11:00am | Sunday 15 December 2019
Two particular events must precede the Lord's return, says Paul - the great apostasy and the revealing of the man of sin. Here are his terrible acts, and the final triumph of Christ. How near are we to these events, and how should they affect us now?
2 Thessalonians 2.3
Bible Study— Dr Peter Masters | 7:30pm | Wednesday 23 September 2015
The apostle names two signs before the return of Christ, one being the revealing of the man of sin. Is he an individual or a collective concept, a genus of God-haters? And what will he or they do? Possible answers are gleaned from the passage.
2 Thessalonians 2.13
— Dr Peter Masters | 11:00am | Sunday 5 January 2020
Paul first speaks of indebtedness (here is how election should influence us); then of our experience of the call of God; then of our duty to hold the faith; then of the forms God's blessing takes, and finally of the kind of strength God imparts.
2 Thessalonians 3.1
Teaching Sermon— Dr Peter Masters | 11:00am | Sunday 12 January 2020
Authentic believers, says the apostle, pray for the Gospel in a certain way, taste opposition (and deliverance), have lively consciences to obey the Lord, and grow in new sense of His love, looking for His return. Are we consciously experiencing the features of a sincere walk?
2 Thessalonians 3.6
— Dr Peter Masters | 11:00am | Sunday 19 January 2020
Paul commands withdrawal of fellowship from believers who persistently flout the apostles' teachings. One example of disorder is the refusal to work for a living, but here are the key offences that seriously blight Gospel work. Here also is the call to fellowship and harmony.
2 Thessalonians 3.16

Some believers imagine that Christ speaks to them and even touches them, while others overreact from extreme pietism and think little of Christ's constant presence with them. Here is the Lord's nearness throughout the Bible, and the power of 'seeing Him' with the eye of faith.
