I Thessalonians 5:1-6 consists of:

  • Direction as to who to listen to in the End Times.
  • A correction of another one of the biggest myths concerning the End Times.

Remember: The book of Daniel is the skeleton for the End Times Chronology and parts of I Thessalonians provides some of the flesh.

I Thess. 5:1-6

Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. 3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; 6 so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober.

Another Theory of Man

One of the big myths around today, that I'm sure you've heard, is that Christ will come like a "thief in the night".

There are Christian books and movies with this title.

They go something like this...

...The pastor is teaching on the End Times...the Rapture specifically.  He is saying something like:

"You've got to be ready church.  Jesus Christ could come any time.  He may come next month...he may come next week...he may come tomorrow...he may even come right - BANG..."

...lightning strikes and all the Christians are gone.  There are a few people left distraught to realize that they missed the Rapture...they weren't ready.

Double Take

Now, read through I Thessalonians 5:1-6 again and pay attention to the "they" and "you" pronouns.


Christ will come for us like a thief in the night.

Find the myth buster in chapter 5 of my book.

"They" will be taken by surprise and will not escape.

But "you" (Christians) will not be overtaken by the Day of the Lord like a thief, because you are to be sober and alert.

That means you are to know and understand the End Times Chronology.  When you do, it will not overtake you like a thief.  If it does that means you are in darkness and not in the light.

So, why does everyone enjoy talking about Jesus coming like a "thief in the night"?  Do you see how out of context that idea is?  These are the verses that this idea comes from.  This is it!

Please don't be a part of the vast majority who believes and teaches that Christ is coming like a thief in the night.  When you do, it's like you are putting yourself in the same category as "they" above.

Don't do it!  Don't go over to the dark side!  Sorry, a little Star Wars humor there...


Jesus will come like a thief in the night...to those in darkness!  I hope that isn't you...

Pay attention to the words of I Thessalonians 5...they are important!

When we understand what the book of I Thessalonians offers concerning the End Times we get a little more meat on the chronological skeleton of Daniel.  We also bring down another one of man's theories.

Overwhelmed by all the theories about the End Times?  Whose end times prophecy is right?

Are the books of Daniel and Revelation confusing to you?

Having trouble keeping up with all the current world news that might pertain to the Last Days?

Understanding the End Times Chronology which God gave us will solve each of these problems for you.  It took me over 2 years to solve these problems for myself and my family.  Now you can do it in the time it takes to read this book - The End Times: What You Need to Know and Why

To journey through the key end times prophecy Scriptures in detail (such as in Daniel and Revelation) and diagram the entire End Times Chronology purchase a resource or host a seminar.
