2 Thessalonians 2:1: “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,”

2 Thessalonians 2:2: “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 is at hand.” The followers of Christ understood the will of the Heavenly Father as written in Acts 24:14-15.



Message to reader: Resurrection of the Just and Unjust

The resurrection of the “just and the unjust,” starts, and ends, with Christ; the generation/people who lived during the time period of the New Testament make up the just and the unjust, see Matthew 24:34-35 and 1 John 3:10. Those who believed in Christ are the just, and all who rejected Christ and his teachings are the unjust. Both groups will receive their rewards (life or death) when Christ returns.

Acts 24:14: “But this I” [Paul] “confess unto thee,” [Felix] “that after the way which they” [Ananias and the elders, see Acts 4:21] “call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:”

Acts 24:15: “And have hope toward God, which they” [Ananias and the elders] “themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.” See Daniel 12:2-3.

The followers of Christ (the just), who lived during the time period of the New Testament, had to endure affliction and remain steadfast in Christ until their death. Those who died in Christ will be raised up in the last day, the time period of the Beast whose deadly wound was healed, see John 6:37-40. Likewise, those who rejected Christ (the unjust), will also be raised up in the last day. The just will receive their rewards, and the unjust will receive their punishments.

Zechariah 13:7: “Awake, O sword, against my shepherd,” [Christ, see John 10:11, 14] “and against the man that is my fellow,” [See John 10:30] “saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered:” [See Matthew 26:31, 33-35, 56] “and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.”

Zechariah 13:8: “And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die;” [See Psalms 69:21-28, Revelation 20:11-15 and Revelation 21:8] “but the third shall be left therein.”

Zechariah 13:9: “And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried:" [See Daniel 12:1 and Message to reader: The Period of Great Tribulation (3 ½ Years)] "they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.” See Revelation 21:2, 5-7, 27.



2 Thessalonians 2:3: “Let no man” [The man of sin, see verse 4] “deceive you by any means: for that day" [The second coming of Christ] "shall not come, except there come a falling away first,” [People in the churches leaving Christ] “and that MAN of SIN be revealed, the son of perdition;”

2 Thessalonians 2:4: “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,” [The man of sin, opposed the teachings of the Most High, Christ and his disciples] “or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,” [The temple of God in Jerusalem, destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD] “shewing himself that he" [The man of sin] "is God.”

2 Thessalonians 2:5: “Remember ye not, that, when I" [Paul] "was yet with you," [The people in the church of the Thessalonians] "I" [Paul] "told you these things?” Paul taught these things when he taught at the church of the Thessalonians.

2 Thessalonians 2:6: “And now ye know what withholdeth” [What had to be fulfilled] “that he” [The man of sin] “might be revealed in his time.” His time is explained in verse 8.

2 Thessalonians 2:7: “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work:” [During the time of this letter, to the church of the Thessalonians, the “man of sin” was on the earth and in the process of fulfilling what was written about him, see Verse 4] “only he” [The Most High] “who now” [During that time period] “letteth will let,” [The “man of sin” continue in his wickedness] “until he” [The man of sin] “be taken out of the way.” Put to death.

2 Thessalonians 2:8: “And then” [After his death] “shall that Wicked be revealed,” [as a liar and deceiver] “whom the Lord” [Christ when he returns] “shall” [Future prophesy] “consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:” Explained in Revelation 17:8 and Revelation 19:20.

2 Thessalonians 2:9: “Even him,” [The Beast whose deadly wound was healed] “whose coming is after the working of Satan" [See Revelation 13:2, 4] "with all power and signs and lying wonders,” See Revelation 13:11-13.

2 Thessalonians 2:10: “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them" [The followers of Satan/the Beast whose deadly wound was healed] "that perish; because they" [The followers of Satan/the man of sin] "received not the love of the truth,” [The word of God taught by Christ, see John 8:40] “that they" [The followers of Satan/the man of sin] "might be saved.”

2 Thessalonians 2:11: “And for this cause” [Rejecting the teachings of Christ] “God shall send them” [Those who followed the man of sin/Satan] “strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” See Revelation 13:13-15.

2 Thessalonians 2:12: “That they" [Those who followed the man of sin/Satan] "all might be damned who believed not the truth,” [See Hebrews 10:26-27] “but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
