2 Thess 1:5-8 , Matt 13:41 Luke 17:30
2 Thessalonians 1:7
And to you who are troubled rest with us, when
the Lord Jesus shall be revealed
from heaven with his mighty angels,
2 Thessalonians 1:8
In flaming fire
taking vengeance on them that know not God
, and that obey notthe gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:We see at the Revealing of the Son of Man which is the coming of the Lord there will be angels takingrevenge on those who don't know God. We will cover this event in section 3 “The Harvest/Reaping.”
The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall
of his kingdom
all things that offend
, and them which do iniquity;“Gather out” in the Greek from above
in its original sense; to
- gather (together, up).
This is not talking about believers as “all things that offend” is referring to the wicked. This event ismentioned later in this document under the “Reaping/Harvest” in section 3 and also mentioned insection 7 about the gathering of the wicked and the good (which occurs at the Return of Christ).
The angels reaping during harvest
(Matthew 13:30,39; 24:39-41 , Luke 17:30-37, Rev 14:14-21)Matthew 13:30
Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest
I will say to thereapers
, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheatinto my barn.
The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world;
and thereapers are the angels.Revelation 14:14
And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Sonof man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that saton the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and
: for the time is come for thee to reap; for
of theearth is ripe.
And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth wasreaped.
And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharpsickle.
And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and criedwith a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather theclusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth,and cast it into
the great winepress of the wrath of God.
