1 Thessalonians 3 - AMP

2 And we sent Timothy, our brother and God's servant in the good news (the Gospel) of Christ, to strengthen and establish and to exhort and comfort and encourage you in your faith, 3 That no one should be disturbed and beguiled and led astray by these afflictions and difficulties . For you yourselves know that this is our appointed lot. 4 For even when we were with you, we warned you plainly beforehand that we were to be pressed with difficulties and made to suffer affliction, just as to your own knowledge it has happened. 5 That is the reason that, when I could bear no longer, I sent that I might learn your faith, lest somehow the tempter had tempted you and our toil be fruitless and to no purpose. 6 But now that Timothy has just come back to us from you and has brought us the good news of your faith and love, and how kindly you cherish a constant and affectionate remembrance of us longing to see us as we you, 7 Brethren, for this reason, in our stress and crushing difficulties we have been filled with comfort and cheer about you your faith (Alexander Souter, Pocket Lexicon.the leaning of your whole personality on God in complete trust and confidence). 8 Because now we live, if you stand in the Lord. 9 For what thanksgiving can we render to God for you for all the gladness and delight which we enjoy for your sakes before our God? 10 continue to pray especially and with most intense earnestness night and day that we may see you face to face and mend and make good whatever may be imperfect and lacking in your faith. 11 Now may our God and Father Himself and our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) guide our steps to you. 12 And may the Lord make you to increase and excel and overflow in love for one another and for all people, just as we also do for you, 13 So that He may strengthen and confirm and establish your hearts faultlessly pure and unblamable in holiness in the sight of our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) with all His saints (the Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.holy and glorified people of God)! Amen, (so be it)!
