Promises of God from 1 Thessalonians

Here are selected promises of God from 1 Thessalonians compiled by Kenneth Boa:

As brothers in Christ, we are loved by God who has chosen us (1:4).
We are waiting for God’s Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath (1:10).
Our hope, our joy, and the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes are the people whom we have loved and served in his name (2:19-20).
The Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.  After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever (4:16-17).
God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.  He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him (5:9-10).
The God of peace desires to sanctify us completely, so that our whole spirit, soul, and body will be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (5:23).
