Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2

  • Word
    Bruce read Ezekiel 13 and know God hates those that teach it. He warned us of this generation of preachers and not to listen to them. Clouds is crowd and air is breath of life or just a spiritual body but it doesn't mean you lift off into the stratosphere. The subject matter in 1 Thess4 where are the dead. forget that letter because Paul wants you to know exactly how we gather back an so read.

    word,Mat:1Corinthians15:52-last trump the dead shall rise--- 1Thessalonians 4:16---trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first:17: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds,to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18:Wherefore comfort one another with these words. Caught up:RAPTURED! Lefted behind Revelations 20:15
  • Word
    Matt Satan is bringing a false peace that to the ignorant of the scriptures they will really think Christ has returned and when he performs supernatural tricks they will worship him. Why not he shows up in Jerusalem claiming he is God and looks like the Lamb with 2 horns of power but he speaks like the dragon and why? Because he the religious dragon Satan himself is deceiving the whole world.
  • Matt
    @ Word, Amen! Lucifer, aka Satan, the serpent, tree of Knowledge, Assyrian, King of Tyre, the devil, IS the antichrist. Isaiah ch. 14; Ezek. ch. 28; Ezek. ch. 31; 2nd Thess. ch. 2. He will deceive all who do not have the seal of God. Those who believe in the ''fly away doctrine'' will be deceived by Satan. Out of 7 churches in Rev. Christ told all to repent but 2: Smyrna and Philadelphia. Study.
  • Word
    Bruce problem is God hates those who teach the rapture salvation written in Ezekiel 13. Plus the fact Satan comes as antichrist while we are all in the flesh and then at the 7th trump we are all changed. Satan comes acting the role of Christ and the world will bow down to him because a supernatural being can perform supernatural tricks and he says he's God. Instead of Christ deceiving the world.
  • Bruce
    Lucas: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1Thessalonians 4:17-18--. What comfort,taking up! Fly away,Raptured! word:Little children understand meet the Lord in the air, is up:Fly away.
