Discussion for 2 Thessalonians 2

  • Word
    falling away.Christians that love the Lord and sat in churches listening to preachers all their lives will join the one world system church when Satan gets here. Then when the true Christ shows up they will be ashamed. The false religious leader antichrist saying he is God preaches he will fly you away. Impregnated with false doctrine they will say they are a widow no longer our husband is home.
  • Irene123
    V.3 - except there be a falling away first, that the man of sin might be revealed. 2 Thess. 2:7 - these 2 scriptures 'witness' each other, just in different wording, but the same meaning. The 'falling away' is the same as - 'until he (church) be taken out of the way'.
  • Word
    Those who don't understand Gods plan and are not sealed in understanding what will happen will follow the first false messiah and will be his worshippers and ignorance is the mark of the beast. They won't have to give it out to anyone because the mark is in their minds. Those that didn't care to see the simplicity in which Christ taught the truth are they and all of the world that didn't care.
  • A disciple
    "But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:" In this chapter we can clearly see another confirmation of our purpose in Christ for being here, and enduring faithful to the end. It is for keeping the testimony of Jesus, so God can judge.
  • Irene123
    I must have asked a personal question of someone ..... ? Or said such about myself?
  • A disciple
    Irene, I'd like to very carefully suggest something for you to think about. While it may seem innocent to some of us who are older, and have lived in a very different time then is now in the world; for that reason; that it IS VERY DIFFERENT; we should not speak of ourselves or others' personal information. It is important to keep things safely neutral, as we don't know who is monitoring us here.
