KJ 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12
1 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you,
This is the day described by the Apostle Paul in the first letter; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.
Don't let them move you from your faith, using a false letter, prophecy, revelation or by word.
2 Timothy 2:17-18
"Hymenaeus and Philetus - saying that the resurrection is already past".
NKJ 2 Peter 3:16
as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are
some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.
3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
A.- The falling away (apostasy). People abandoned GOD'S truth.
B.- The man of sin, (rebellion to GOD's commandments.) (lawlessness).
C-. The son of perdition. (son of doom, or son of destruction.)
4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped,
so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
Just like satan attempts to take the throne of GOD, this man of lawlessness declares
to be the vicarious of Christ, the representation of GOD on earth, the successor of Christ.
5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?
6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.
We now understand that it was the presence of the Apostles and the revelation of the word of GOD that stopped any false doctrine and false prophecy.
A.- NKJ Acts 20:29 "For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.
B.- NKJ Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants -- things
which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John.
C.- This happened in the times of Moses, Exodus 1:8. After Joshua leadership. Judges 2:10.
7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
1 Timothy 4:1-3
1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,
2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,
3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
The Apostle John was aware of the beginning of these events, things which started in the church and were necessary to remind them about all what was about to come.
NKJ 1 John 2:18-22
18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming,
even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.
19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have
continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.
21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.
9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,
People are looking for miracles and wonders and are falling into lies because they are not looking into the truth, the word of GOD.
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
NKJ 1 John 4:3
and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God.
And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
NKJ 2 John 1:7
For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,
12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
NKJ Matthew 7:22-23
22 "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name,
cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'
23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
Are you afraid of the day of the Lord?
Not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled,
Are you listening to the truth?
Or are you waiting for a fake miracle and wonders to believe in?
