Are You Still Fighting? | 2 Thessalonians 2

“Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to Him, we ask you, brothers and sisters,”
a. What requests do you make of God?
b. What requests do you make of others?
c. What requests do others make of you?
“not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come.”
“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion…”
a. rebellion, apostasy, abandonment.
Refers to rebelling or abandoning a former authority.
“…occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.
He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things?”
Reflect: What verses do you hold fast to in times of trouble? Write down these promises and expressions of love from The Lord to you.
“And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time.”
b. We don’t need to know dates to know tendencies (of the enemy)
c. We don’t need to know dates to be prepared (for Christ’s return)
“For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till He is taken out of the way.”
“And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of His mouth and destroy by the splendor of His coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie,
and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.”
d. God gives us a choice. (Romans 1:20)
e. Behind the great deception there lay the great refusal.
“For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”
Reflect: In what do you delight? What brings you joy?
Stand Firm
“But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.”
Reflect: What opportunity through difficulty has God set before you so that He may be displayed through you?
“May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.”
Reflect to Project:
As God encourages your heart and strengthens you, what people and places come to mind where you can live out every good deed and word?
How will you start/continue to stand firm and hold fast to the teachings (this week)? Write it down.
