II Thessalonians 1:6
“Seeing it is a righteous thing with God (and remember God can’t do anything that is wrong or unfair. God only knows how to do that which is upright and righteous) to recompense (or payback) tribulation to them that trouble you;”
The people that tormented the Thessalonian believers are no different than the police who threatened and tormented worshippers at this Easter service in London. And don’t think for a second that these beast-like police officers are going to get away with it. Oh, they may in this physical life, but they still must come before the Great White Throne one day, and remember God is righteous and God won’t forget those things. So believers can take comfort in that, even though we can’t strike back ourselves we have the promise that God will.
