Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2

  • Randy Holland
    The falling away is the apostasy ,,or the falling away from God or ones belief not a rapture...
  • Bruce
    Irene: but in those days after that "tribulation",the sun shall be darkened-- And then shall he send his angels,-- But of that day and that hour knoweth No man--- neither the Son--Mark13:24-37. We must through much "tribulation" enter into the kingdom of God.Acts14:22. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall "tribulation",or distress,or persecution---Romans 8:35
  • A disciple
    Sakana; adding to what you said, (very good!), that's what happens when folks who don't have the Holy Spirit to teach them all things, go instead after their own imaginations! Another problem that they make for themselves, is that they apparently don't have access to, or don't know how to use a Strong's Concordance, or a good Dictionary; for this would clear up all their misreadings of Scriptures.
  • Sakana
    I may be misunderstanding, but if "gathering to Christ" (v1) and "falling away" (v3) is same event, v3 doesn't make sense, "the rapture can't happen until the rapture happens." The falling away (apostasy) will be believers falling (leaving their first love) from worshipping true Christ. Why do they? Satan (1st) will look like the Lamb (Rev 13). We wait for true Lamb (2nd). Patience. (Lk 21:19)
  • Irene123
    Vs. 1, 3 - these 2 vs, speak of the same event - the rapture. IF the church were here during the tribulation there would be no rapture because - if they do not accept the mark of the beast - they will all be killed.
    P.S. - this isn't to anyone on here that disagrees; it's to anyone - interested.
  • I AM
    All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, says the LORD: I will set him in safety from him that puffs at him. To set up on high those that be low: that those which mourn may be exalted to safety. All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off: but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted. Now will I rise, says the LORD: now will I be exalted: now will I lift up myself. Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Behold your God!
