Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2

  • Word
    Telling us that the son of perdition which is death, Satan, will be in Jerusalem claiming he is God and then the true Christ comes at the 7th trump. Now are you going to believe the deception and have pleasure in his one world system thinking antichrist is Christ and worship a false messiah. Satan is going to look like the real deal with power. So pray and ask Father to let you see the truth.
  • Word
    The Romans or their churches have nothing to do with the man of sin the son of perdition because there is only one who has been sentenced to death and that's Satan Ezekiel 28 vs 18,19 and as Daniel says Satan comes in peace and flatteries with prosperity and we know antichrist means instead of Christ and Satan comes looking like the Lamb of God with power but it's the dragon.
  • Lucas
    The rupture thing is not a biblical concept. Nowhere in the Bible have I ever read about it. Yes the man of sin refers to the Roman Catholic papacy. The inquisitions and tortures caused great dissention among christians - but some were steadfast in their Faith fearing nothing but persuing the truths. They sacrificed their lives for truth. Now the deception is subtle. It is the satanic NWO.
  • Word
    Jim God hates those who teach his children to fly to save their souls. Satan' lie. All go through the test and all are changed at the same time and that's the 7th trump. The test is if you have read the scriptures with understanding and know Gods true salvation and if you do you escape the hour of temptation because you can't be tempted by the devil in his deception of playing the role of Christ.

    to Karl and anyone else who cares to listen. There will be a great separation of believers and unbelievers at His second coming, but prior to that event and the tribulation the Church will be raptured. The Church is a unique special group. There will be people who will be saved during the tribulation but they are referred to as tribulation saints. They will live during that horrible time.
  • Jim pashayan
    In this chapter Paul is warning these believers not to be shaken up by the false teaching that the day of the Lord is upon them. This will not happen until after the rapture and then the great apostacy. I John 4 vs 18 "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." Godly reverence does not equal worldy fear.
