People's Bible Notes for 2 Thessalonians 2:1


2Th 2:1 The Man of Sin SUMMARY OF II THESSALONIANS 2: Not to Be Troubled Supposing the Day of the Lord at Hand. An Apostasy Must First Come. Then the Revelation of the Man of Sin. The Wicked One Destroyed at the Lord's Coming. Exhortation to Stand Fast. Now, we beseech you, brethren. This chapter is written to remove misapprehension on the subject of the Lord's coming. It shows that it might not be expected until certain events have taken place. These are, (1) A falling away, or apostasy; (2) The removal of some power which hindered the manifestation of the man of sin; (3) The manifestation of the man of sin, and following this, the coming of the Lord. He had told them of these things while with them (2Th 2:5), but now writes more fully. He does not seek to show all, but some of the events which will precede Christ's coming. By the coming. Rather, concerning the coming. His importunity is respecting this and "the gathering of the saints".

Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2

  • A disciple
    As in every place in Scripture where the Spirit speaks about the coming Day of the LORD; it is first priority for preparing the Saints to be well informed and secured in their faith, against the things necessary to bring about the completion of the age. We shouldn't be scandalized away from Jesus by the taking away of all restraint of the wicked by God, but to understand why these things must be.

    2 Thessalonians 2:8-17 V.10 "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish;because they received not the love of the truth;that they might be saved. "(Those that do not receive the love of the truth, will not be saved,will perish (in the lake of fire). 11"God shall send them strong delusion," 14"called you by our gospel." No love,no truth,no salvation,not qualified=no help.
