The new believers in Thessalonica are facing severe persecution from jews, gentiles and the Romans surrounding them for their faith in the One true King, Jesus Christ.  Paul encourages them to stand fast in the truth that they first received in the middle of this chaos. At this time some deceivers were  rising up and telling the new believers false things about Jesus' return stirring up fear and trouble. As you can imagine this could have easily shaken up any new believer. So Paul writes in care, concern and passion to correct the mistakes, bring clarity and comfort to the new believers. Paul also mentions the GREAT APOSTASY and teaches about why the deceivers were wrong about Jesus' return. The return of Christ is not a trouble for believers, but a wonderful hope and comfort.

Paul's second letter is a response to the reports that the persecution against the Thessalonian believers has intensified. Paul thanks God for their endurance and faith in the face of suffering and reminds the believers that there is a day of rest for them and all believers. However, the ultimate suffering will be for those who deny Jesus, who will be separated from him eternally when Jesus returns with his might angels, in  flaming fire, bringing judgment on those who don't know God and on those who refuse to obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus. Follow along on Instagram: @AWalkWithfriendsConnect through email: marcela.awalkwithfriends@gmail.com

Paul is writing the new believers, encouraging them in the faith and reminding them of God's call on their lives on how to live as they look forward to Jesus' return. To live set apart in a culture that at that time was facing rampant sexual immorality. To not live like the gentiles do but to live a sanctified life that honors God. Paul urges the believers to grow more and more in love and aspiration to lead a quiet life to be walk properly toward those who are outside of Christ, showing that they lack nothing. Paul also answers some questions the new believers have about the return of Christ.Follow along on instagram: @AWalkWithfriends
We continue in the Apostle Paul's epistle (letter) to the new believers in Thessolonica. Paul explains why he sent Timothy. Timothy a young follower of Christ, makes the journey to bring encouragement and comfort. Upon Timothy's return, Paul writes this letter and expresses how he longs to see them again. 
Now in Rome, Paul flees persecution from the greek gentiles who worshipped pagan gods and the jews clinging to their traditional faith. Paul sends Timothy back to Thessolonica to check on the believers there calling them the "eklessia' in chapter one. In Paul's love and concern for them Timothy goes to Thessolonica to find out how they are doing, what questions they have and to encourage them in their faith. As Timothy gets back to Paul with good report of the new converts in Thessolonica, Paul writes them a letter. This is where we are finding ourselves, in the beginning portion of Paul's letter to these new believers.

Have you ever wondered what Paul's ministry looked like after his radical conversion from persecuting Christians, to encountering Jesus and his entire life being changed for the gospel of Jesus Christ? We dive deep into context and history to better understand Paul's first epistle and find out. Thessalonians are letters written by Paul to new believers. How exciting to find out how Paul evangelized in the Roman republic.  My prayer for my listeners is we become lovers of God's Word and study ourselves to be approved. Thank you all for joining this deep dive and walking through the Word with me on the podcast. Enjoy!Follow along on instagram for updates: @AWalkWithFriends
The last chapter of the gospel of John. Follow along on instagram: @aWalkWithFriends
Fulling the scriptures, Jesus is sentenced to death. FOLLOW ALONG ON INSTAGRAM: @AWalkWithFriends
The rooster crows three times, Jesus' disciples are scattering and Pilate asks Jesus, "what is truth?". All while the jewish leaders are determined to have Jesus killed by the Romans. 
For Himself, For His Disciples and for future believers, Jesus prayed. FOLLOW ALONG ON INSTAGRAM: @aWalkWithFriends
The disciples finally understand that Jesus knows everything. While they do not yet understand everything as Jesus reveals it to them, they believe. Knowing all they do, and seeing all they have, they cling to every word Jesus is speaking as the prophecy unravels before their eyes, of the Messiah. The disciples are grieving that Jesus is telling them He is leaving, but assures them that it is best He does, because if He doesn't, the Advocate won't come. 
Jesus is the visible, tangible image of the invisible God. He is the complete revelation of what God is like. Jesus explained to Philip, who wanted to see the Father, that to know Jesus is to know God. The search for God, the truth and reality, ends in Christ. Colossians 1:15, “Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation . ”Hebrews 1:2-4, "Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe.  The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven. This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names."FOLLOW ALONG ON INSTAGRAM!: @AWalkWithFriends
Jesus washes His disciples feet at supper and asks them if they know what it is He is doing. Perplexed by their Lord stooping down with a towel wrapped around His waist as He touches their feet, the disciples are watching Jesus show them an example. Jesus does this to show them what He wants them to do , so that the world will know who's are His disciples. Jesus predicts Judas' betrayal and Peters denial. FOLLOW ALONG ON INSTAGRAM!: @AWalkWithFriends
As the fragrance of the essence of nard fills Martha's home, Judas watched a years worth of wages being poured out onto the feet of Jesus. Mary is wiping Jesus' feet with her hair and Judas is complaining of money foolishly wasted. The hearts of many are being exposed as Jesus continues to do the Fathers will. Riding into Jerusalem on a young donkey, palm leaves have paved the way for the King. Shouts of hosanna are filling the air. Jesus predicts his death. 
We come to the last of the Seven Signs in John’s Gospel. And this time it is the Raising of Lazarus – a very appropriate place to be in our reading before we inch any closer to Easter this year. As Jesus raises a dead man to life, the plot for killing Jesus also begins. FOLLOW ALONG ON INSTAGRAM: @AWalkWithFriends
Jesus uses the illustration of sheep and their shepherd to explain His relationship to those that belong to Him. The religious leaders are upset that Jesus calls Himself the Son of God, and pick up stones yet again. Jesus continues to bring the scriptures to their attention and challenging their thinking. But they still cannot understand Jesus as they continue to try to understand Him with their human understanding. 
Jesus heals the blind man and has a word for the Pharisees. "If you were blind, you wouldn't be guilty." Jesus replied. "But you remain guilty because you claim you can see."FOLLOW ALONG ON INSTAGRAM: @AWalkWithFriends
Jesus forgives a woman from her sin and tells that He is the Light of the world!  As the religious leaders and crowds try to trap Jesus by testing Him, Jesus speaks about who God's true children truly are.  "I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I AM".  (John 8:58) Follow along on Instagram: @AWalkWithFriendsSow into the Podcast: VENMO @MARCELAESLAOHELP the Podcast reach the globe!: Leave a 5 star review on whatever audio platform you are using! Thank you for joining our daily reading and our podcast community + God Bless!
