“how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.” (1 Thessalonians 1:9–10 HCSB)

I don’t know that there is a verse in the Scriptures which packs more information about Jesus into one verse than 1 Thess 1.10:

  1. Believers are waiting for Jesus
  2. Jesus is God’s son
  3. Jesus is in heaven
  4. God raised Jesus from the dead
  5. Jesus rescues us…
  6. …from coming wrath

Is there someone to rescue us from God’s wrath against sin?

Yes.  Jesus.  Only Jesus.
