Hi, dad helped me find this, so it is in 2 Thessalonians 1:4,9 and 11 which says about Gods people, therefore among Gods churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring. unbelievers will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power. Now Paul is talking to the believers, with with this in mind we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith.
So perseverance is that the church persevered and Paul told the other churches about them and punishment is that the unbelievers did not obey what God said so he punished them, and the power is Gods power over everything.
I don’t mean to come hard on anyone but have you accepted what God tells you to do or is God going to punish you, think about it. Hard.
