Man of Lawlessness

Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:1 - Now we request you, brethren, 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 from your [fn]composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a [fn]message 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 will 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 temple of God, displaying 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 - Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord 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 - that is, the one whose [fn]coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and [fn]signs and false wonders,
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:10 - and with [fn]all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:11 - For this reason God [fn]will send upon them [fn]a 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 wickedness.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:13 - But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you [fn]from the beginning for salvation [fn]through sanctification [fn]by the Spirit and faith in the truth.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:14 - It was for this He called you through our gospel, [fn]that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box2Th 2:15 - So then, brethren, 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 - comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.
