Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2

  • Matt
    Satan is the son of perdition. The word perdition in the Greek:

    684. apoleia ap-o'-li-a from a presumed derivative of 622; ruin or loss (physical, spiritual or eternal):--damnable(-nation), destruction, die, perdition, X perish, pernicious ways, waste.

    In other words, the only named person to perish. He is the serpent/beast/antichrist/ the devil, etc. Look back at Isaiah chapter 14 v. 12-15.

    Verse 3 says "man" not men and that's something to think about. Then it speaks of the falling away where people leave the church religions that they grew up in and join a one world church which is the great apostacy. Why? Who's coming to town the false messiah instead of Christ or antichrist the son of perdition and the first seal brings in a man on a white horse with a crown that looks real.FAKE.

    Verse 7 is saying that sin is already in the world because of Satans spirit is working evil. Verse 8 is speaking of Satan being held by Michael as Revelation 12 tells us and when God gives Michael the order Satan will be released and kick to earth and not in war but peace a false messiah to gather his worshippers who are ignorant of the scriptures and THEN the True Christ comes. TRUTH!
