2 Thessalonians 2:1-17 - Here is an expounding of The Word from 2 Thessalonians 2:

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, (The Rapture)

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ (Armageddon) is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (Armageddon) shall not come, except there come a falling away first, (The Apostasy of the Church's/Rebellion?/The Rapture?) and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (The Anti-Christ)

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he (The Anti-Christ) as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6 And now ye know what withholdeth (The Holy Spirit/The Holy Spirit indwelt Believers, The Church) that he  (The Anti-Christ) might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he (The Holy Spirit/The Holy Spirit indwelt Believers, The Church) be taken out of the way (The Rapture).

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed (The Anti-Christ), whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: (At Armageddon)

9 Even him, (The Anti-Christ) whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, (people that hear the Gospel today but who don't care so to say) that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, (The Anti-Christ himself, along with the False Prophet, their signs and lying wonders, deceit from the Media -- UFO's?, Muslims thinking the Anti-Christ is their Savior? "The Mahdi"?? ....) that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

13 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: 14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, 17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
