Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2:11

  • I believe everything that the bible says is true because it is the word of God
  • I agree aliens are none other than the fallen angels who 's mission under satan is to deceive mankind. H2 a offshoot of the history channel has a show called ancient aliens that deny the existence of "G d " and imply that aliens were the creators of humankind in the ancient past and our DNA is mixed with thiers and that we are the descendants of the nephelim see Genesis chapter 6 and numbers 13:31-36 I believe that those who do not accept Jesus as their Lord and savior might be descendents of the nephelim but those who accept Christ must have descended through Noahs bloodline. God found Noah righteous in his generation. His bloodline was not tainted. There is something very special about human blood that the adversary covets.
  • "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin " Rom. 4 8 . So then I pray that the Lord God have MERCY on us AMEN.
  • Jody Graves for verse 11
    “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Tim. 4:3-4).
  • Jeff diggins for verse 11
    the delusion will be aliens... be careful the aliens are the fallen demons and satan
  • Jeffrey scott diggins for verse 11
    God has enlightened me on this line of scripture. It will be aliens and the secrets that we are uncovering about old civilizations have been set up by satan so that in the end times these things will be found to dispute creation
