Today, we are continuing the series titled INCREASE ASSURANCE based on the books of 1st and 2nd Thessalonians. In the first chapter of 2 Thessalonians, Paul speaks to the Church about their relationship with God, as their Father and with Jesus, as their Lord. He also speaks to them about how they are to grow in the walk with Christ. Finally, he concludes by telling the church about the afflictions and persecutions they are going and makes the church aware that it is part of their Journey through and that there is “light at the end of the tunnel.” That light is Heaven at the end. Join us this Sunday as we learn how to prepare for Heaven at the end.
