    Read subject, first verse because the whole chapter is explaining exactly what will take place at the very end.It is saying that before the Lord comes that the son of perdition/ Satan will come and the whole world will chase after him an many Christians will be deceived right along with them, falling away so if they tell you Christ is here or there don't go because it's not Him.Put it all together
  • Ray321
    2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition This verse is talking about the tribulation that the antichrist will reveal himself. It will be easier to fall from sin in the 7 year tribulation then the Grace of age we live right now.
  • 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.
