Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2

  • Ken
    The falling away precedes the translation. The falling away is the time prior to the revelation of the anti-Christ, as referenced above. The end of the church age. The falling away includes both unbelievers and believers. The unbelievers are "condemned already". Believers are eternally secure even though many get caught up in apostasy.

    As I said those that think they are a widow no longer and that their husband has came home either to rapture them out or for what ever reason Satan wants them to believe as he twist the scriptures to win them over as he plays false messiah will lose but the fact is nobody's going nowhere until we are all changed into spiritual bodies and the bride will be tested along with The saints. ALL that's U
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Any born again saint who truly has any accurate knowledge of Gods Holy Word knows that its IMPOSSIBLE for thE antichrist to show up in this day and time because the HOLY SPIRIT TONGUES a.k.a. THE RESTRAINER is still fully present and he cannot show up until the TRUE BRIDE is FULLY RESTORED AMEN ! When the time comes the GATHERING will arrive . This is Truly Rightly Divided Accuracy. Shalom !
  • Word
    Ken apostacy happens when the false messiah, antichrist who looks exactly like the Lamb of God but is Satan who comes to deceive the whole world, speaks like the dragon because he twist scriptures as he did tempting Christ on the desert. Antichrist is coming with power man has never seen before and churches will be falling away chasing after him as he will look so religious. Super preacher coming.
  • Ken
    We are in the period of time referred to above as the "falling away". The body of Christ is lukewarm. Neither hot nor cold. Teachers with itching ears manifest a religious tone, but reject the deity of Jesus Christ and the power of the Gospel. Instead, they pervert the Gospel. Because we have turned from God, we are experiencing God's judgement. Perilous times. Next, comes the translation.
  • Brother William
    "The falling away" is not "the coming out of her lest you be a PARTAKER of her sins and receive of her plagues." "The Spirit speaks expressly that in the latter days some will depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits." When the abomination that makes desolate is revealed standing in the holy place, "the whole head is sick, and the body full of putrifying sores."
    Watch and pray.
