The Man of Lawlessness

Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:1 -

Now we ask you, brothers, with regard to the [fn]coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him,

Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:2 - that you not be quickly shaken in your mind or be alarmed whether by a spirit or a word or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:3 - Let no one in any way deceive you, for it has not come unless the [fn]apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:4 - who opposes and exalts himself above [fn]every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the [fn]sanctuary of God, exhibiting himself as being God.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:5 - Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things?
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:6 - And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:7 - For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:8 - And then that lawless one will be revealed—whom the Lord [fn]Jesus WILL SLAY WITH THE BREATH OF HIS MOUTH and bring to an end by the appearance of His [fn]coming
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:9 - whose [fn]coming is in accord with the working of Satan, with all power and [fn]signs and false wonders,
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:10 - and with [fn]all the deception of unrighteousness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:11 - And for this reason God sends upon them a [fn]deluding influence so that they will believe [fn]what is false,
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:12 - in order that they all may be [fn]judged who did not believe the truth, but [fn]took pleasure in unrighteousness.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:13 -

But we should always give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you [fn]as the first fruits for salvation through sanctification [fn]by the Spirit and faith in the truth.

Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:14 - [fn]It was for this He called you through our gospel, [fn]that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:15 - So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught, whether by word of mouth or by letter [fn]from us.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:16 -

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace,

Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:17 - encourage your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word.
