The leaching on eschalology is of utmost importance in the first epistle of Paul to the Thessalonians. Regarding the parousia of Christ, Paul presents a number of instructions concerning the process of sanctification. When the apostle deals with paranctic material, he does not command but request. Those who have been called to sanctification, should not continue to live in impurity, for God has given the Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of sanctification. The indicative of the parousia is linked with the paraclesis of sanctification by the Holy Spirit. God who called the members of the church in sanctification has given the Holy Spirit to fulfil all His obligations. In this article it is indicated that the relation between indicative and paraclesis in this Epistle is of a pneumalological nature.
