God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well … on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you. 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10
The following comment was made on my site in regard to these verses: “It’s nice to know we have an avenger … someone who actually cares when we are persecuted and will show the world we haven’t been foolish in believing in the one and only true God.”
There are times in these present days when the world would try to make us feel foolish for believing in spiritual realities that we cannot see. There’s a new wave of Atheists who like to quote science and recent scientific discoveries to supposedly ‘prove’ there is no God. Christians don’t need to fear science or new discoveries. After all, when science first became a recognized field of endeavour it was believers who were at the forefront. However the challenge for scientists today is to be willing to follow the evidence wherever it leads. Many scientists are recognising the universe had a beginning whether it was a “Big Bang” or something else. But what happened 30 seconds before the Big Bang? Who or what caused the beginning? If the trail of evidence leads to a Creator would these scientists believe it or have they already closed their minds?
Regardless of what the world would try and teach us, we trust in the one who loves us, cares when we’re mistreated, misquoted and misunderstood, and who will one day reward those who believed even in the face of stiff opposition.
