Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Word
    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.

  • Word
    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!
