Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 2 Thessalonians 2:2


2:2 Be not shaken in mind - In judgment. Or terrified - As those easily are who are immoderately fond of knowing future things. Neither by any pretended revelation from the Spirit, nor by pretence of any word spoken by me.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Thessalonians 2:2


2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled. Be not agitated, or in distress. Neither by spirit. By some one who says he has a revelation of the Spirit. Nor by word, nor by letter as from us. Nor by one who claims to quote a word or letter from us. It is thought that a forged letter had been circulated to which Paul alludes. In the close of this Epistle he shows how his letters may be known to be genuine. Some suppose, however, that by "letter" he refers to an incorrect interpretation which was placed on his first letter.

    This verse can only be understood by revelation, this is because that very portion is a mystery. The mystery of iniquity there is referring us what happened in the garden of Eden that it's only by revelation that someone can understand it is sex that took place there. So God is still revealing to his people through aposttle Paul that the mystery to iniquity doeth already happened.

    THESSALONIANS 2:10 and with all deceiveableness of unrighteousness in them that perish because they received not the love of the truth that they might be saved ROMANS 1:18 for the wrath of GOD is revealed from heaven against --- all ungodliness and unrighteousness --- of men who hold the truth in unrighteousness

    2 THESSALONIANS 2:16 now our LORD JESUS CHRIST himself and GOD even our FATHER which hath loved us and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace TITUS 2:11 for the grace of GOD that --- BRINGETH SALVATION --- hath appeared to all men --2:12-- TEACHING US --- that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts we should live soberly righteously and godly in this present world
  • I am that Michael Isaac Dale
    This false Christ speaks of the coming antichrist (but is exposed as one of many antichrists.) It is written, Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and THIS IS that spirit of antichrist, WHEREOF ye have heard that it SHOULD come; and even NOW ALREADY is it in the world.
  • Paul
    The body of Christ will leave before the anti -christ is revealed. Verses 5-8 show that he can't be here at the same time as the body of Christ, we keep him from being revealed. We will be caught up "pre-trib" and after the anti-christ is revealed begins the time of Jacob's trouble, Jeremiah 30:7.
