The Man of Sin

Message to reader: Thessalonians Chapter 2

This letter, sent to the church in Thessalonica, warns the followers of Christ about The Man of Sin, and the events that will take place in their time period. Additionally, The Man of Sin’s spirit will be brought back, in the end as the BEAST whose deadly wound was healed, see 2 Thessalonians 2:3 and Revelation 17:8-11. The final judgment of The Man of Sin was prophesied in both 2 Thessalonians 2:8 and Revelation 19:11, 20

2 Thessalonians 2:8: “And then” [After the death of The Man of Sin] “shall that Wicked" [The Man of Sin] "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:” See Revelation 19:11, 15, 19-20.
