Events prior to the Lord’s Second Coming

2Now, dear brothers and sisters, let us clarify some things about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and how we will be gathered to meet him.G1161G2065G5209G80G5228G3952G2257G2962G2424G5547G2532G2257G1997G1909G846 2Don't be so easily shaken or alarmed by those who say that the day of the Lord has already begun. Don't believe them, even if they claim to have had a spiritual vision, a revelation, or a letter supposedly from us.G1519G5209G4531G3361G5030G4531G575G3563G3383G2360G3383G1223G4151G3383G1223G3056G3383G1223G1992G5613G1223G2257G5613G3754G2250G5547G1764 3Don't be fooled by what they say. For that day will not come until there is a great rebellion against God and the man of lawlessness is revealed - the one who brings destruction.G1818G3361G5100G1818G5209G2596G3367G5158G3754G3362G2064G646G4412G2532G444G266G601G5207G684 4He will exalt himself and defy everything that people call god and every object of worship. He will even sit in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God.G3588G480G2532G5229G1909G3956G3004G2316G2228G4574G5620G846G5613G2316G2523G1519G3485G2316G584G1438G3754G2076G2316 5Don't you remember that I told you about all this when I was with you?G3421G3756G3754G5607G2089G4314G5209G3004G5213G5023 6And you know what is holding him back, for he can be revealed only when his time comes.G2532G3568G1492G2722G1519G846G601G1722G1438G2540 7For this lawlessness is already at work secretly, and it will remain secret until the one who is holding it back steps out of the way.G1063G3466G458G1754G2235G1754G3440G737G2722G2193G1096G1537G3319 8Then the man of lawlessness will be revealed, but the Lord Jesus will kill him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by the splendor of his coming.G2532G5119G601G459G601G3739G2962G355G4151G846G4750G2532G2673G2015G846G3952 9This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles.G3739G3952G2076G2596G1753G4567G1722G3956G1411G2532G4592G2532G5579G5059 10He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them.G2532G1722G3956G539G93G1722G622G473G3739G1209G3756G26G225G1519G846G4982 11So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies.G2532G5124G1223G2316G3992G846G1753G4106G1519G846G4100G5579 12Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.G2443G3956G2919G3588G4100G3361G225G235G2106G1722G93

Believers Should Stand Firm

13As for us, we can't help but thank God for you, dear brothers and sisters loved by the Lord. We are always thankful that God chose you to be among the first to experience salvation - a salvation that came through the Spirit who makes you holy and through your belief in the truth.G1161G2249G3784G2168G3842G2316G4012G5216G80G25G5259G2962G3754G2316G138G575G746G138G5209G1519G4991G1722G38G4151G2532G4102G225 14He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.G1519G3739G2564G5209G1223G2257G2098G1519G4047G1391G2257G2962G2424G5547 15With all these things in mind, dear brothers and sisters, stand firm and keep a strong grip on the teaching we passed on to you both in person and by letter.G686G3767G80G4739G2532G2902G3862G3739G1321G1535G1223G3056G1535G1223G2257G1992 16Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope,G1161G2257G2962G2424G5547G846G2532G2316G2532G2257G3962G3588G25G2248G2532G1325G166G3874G2532G18G1680G1722G5485 17comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say.G3870G5216G2588G2532G4741G5209G1722G3956G18G3056G2532G2041
