Praise God we don’t have to sanctify ourselves, rather He who called us and is faithful will do it!

BibleGateway: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24

ESV Text: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24


KJV Text:

The section starts at about 1:39 and ends at about 2:19

     16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19 Quench not the Spirit. 20 Despise not prophesyings. 21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

     23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 60:
Hark, a Thrilling Voice is Sounding

— Organ Audio


1. Hark, a thrilling voice is sounding! 
“Christ is nigh!” we hear it say; 
“Cast away the works of darkness, 
O ye children of the day!” 

2. Startled at the solemn warning, 
Let the earth-bound soul arise; 
Christ, her Sun, all sloth dispelling, 
Shines upon the morning skies. 

3. Lo, the Lamb, so long expected, 
Comes with pardon down from heaven. 
Let us haste, with tears of sorrow, 
One and all, to be forgiven, 

4. That, when next He comes with glory 
And the world is wrapped in fear, 
He may shield us with His mercy 
And with words of love draw near. 

5. Honor, glory, might, dominion, 
To the Father and the Son, 
With the everlasting Spirit, 
While eternal ages run!
