For the purpose of God for you is this: that you may be holy, and may keep yourselves from the desires of the flesh;
1 Thessalonians 4:3 BBE
1Th 4:3 For the purpose of God for you is this: that you may be holy, and may keep yourselves from the desires of the flesh;
1Th 4:4 So that every one of you may keep his body holy and in honour;
1Th 4:7 Because it is God’s purpose that our way of life may be not unclean but holy.
1Th 4:14 For if we have faith that Jesus underwent death and came back again, even so those who are sleeping will come again with him by God’s power.
1Th 4:15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are still living at the coming of the Lord, will not go before those who are sleeping.
1Th 4:16 Because the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a word of authority, with the voice of the chief angel, with the sound of a horn: and the dead in Christ will come to life first;
1Th 4:17 Then we who are still living will be taken up together with them into the clouds to see the Lord in the air: and so will we be for ever with the Lord.
1Th 4:18 So then, give comfort to one another with these words.
