The Rapture & Day of the Lord - Part 3 (2 Thessalonians 2:6-12)

Bob SchultzBob Schultz, January 27, 2013
Part of the 2 Thessalonians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

This week we continue our study of II Thessalonians 2:6-12 by looking at 4 aspects of the antichrist’s short time on earth so that we would love the truth and be comforted that we are not going through the great tribulation period.

This passage has a lot to say not only about the antichrist and his brief time on earth but also the dilemma of unbelief and judgment. This passage answers a lot of difficult theological questions and also speaks simply to the practical issue of judgment and unbelief.


2 Thessalonians 2:6–12 (Listen)

And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10 and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, 12 in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
