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

  • Kenny
    That's why God say stand and doing all to stand, stand be grounded iin the word of God.
  • A disciple
    Hubert; The way I read it, every indication from Scripture is that the Coming of the Lord and the Catching Away of the Saints is all one event. Why else would the Lord warn us to not let men mislead us about there having to be a falling away first and the man of sin be revealed; and that we must endure to the end and be faithful unto death? After Noah entered the ark God didn't wait seven years!
  • Hubert
    The coming of the Lord, and the catching away of his bride is two different events, when the second coming of the Lord appears the church has already been raptured the church is already with him in heaven for he is coming back with ten thousands and thousands of his Saints
  • Brinda burns
    there shall have no other gods before me; in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the word was God
  • A disciple
    "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled.." We are grateful for the small times of quiet and happiness; yet even in these we know there is certainly evil and trouble coming on the horizon. We have to walk with our hearts and minds with Christ in heaven Who is our expectation!

    There are 2 mysteries in the Bible-the mystery of godliness, that the divine Son of God lay off his divinity to put on sinful human nature in order to redeem mankind
