(2 Thes 2:1,2) Now we beseech [pray for] you, brethren, by [“concerning” NKJV] the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ [1], and by our gathering together unto him [1], That ye be not soon shaken [Gk: waver, agitated] in mind, or be troubled [Gk: frightened], neither by spirit [note that spirits can influence you], nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of [the return of Jesus] Christ is at hand [Gk: present] [and thinking that you were not taken up, that you missed it and were left behind].

1.    (1 Thes 4:16,17) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven [“God is within you” Luke 17:21] with a shout, with the voice of the archangel [Michael, God speaks to us through His Angels, i.e., the logos Bible], and with the trump [sound, Words] of God: and the dead in Christ [the Moses company] shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain [the Elijah company] shall be caught up together [Gk: taken up] [e.g., on the mount of transfiguration: Matt 17:1-3] with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

a.     (Matt 17:1-3) And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John [three witnesses] his brother, and bringeth them up [Gk: to take up] into an high mountain apart, And [Jesus] was transfigured [Gk: transformed (“metamorphosed”): changed] before them: and his face did shine [Gk: beam, radiate brilliancy: give light] [illumination] as the sun [which is actually, a star], and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias [Elijah] talking with him.


(2 Thes 2:3,4) Let no man deceive [Gk: seduce wholly: beguile] you [like the serpent “beguiled” the woman (Eve) by providing something she wanted] [1] by any [other] means [e.g., preaching, teaching, etc.]: for that day [of the second coming of Jesus Christ as he came the first time from inside Mary (Heb: rebellion /// bitterness); and is “the glory which shall be revealed in us” Rom 8:18,19] shall not come, except there come a falling away first [Gk: apostasia; a defection from truth (“apostasy”)] [How? Answer: “strong delusion”], and that man of sin be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed], the son of perdition [2]; Who opposeth [himself] and exalteth himself [puffs up himself (like yeast) with pride] above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing [showing, presenting, displaying] himself [to other people] that he is God [Gk: a deity, the Supreme Divinity] [3].  

1.    (Gen 3:6) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired [Heb: to delight in: covet, lust] [i.e., emphatically her desire] to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

a.     Commentary: “deceive you” = as the “serpent” and his minions (devils, demons, unclean spirits) are beguiling United States citizens and millions of illegal immigrants with free money, and additionally providing for free education, free medical, and free residential expenses, etc., thereby buying your vote.

2.    perdition = Gk: ruin or loss: damnation: waste. Dict: 1. complete and irreparable loss; ruin. 2. the loss of the soul; damnation, the same as Hell.

3.    (1 Cor 3:16,17) Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile [Gk: corrupt (himself)] [with unforgiven sin] the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy [Gk: pure, blameless], which temple ye are.

a.     Commentary: statistically, well over 50% of America believes the President; therefore, “he as God sitteth” (reigns supreme) on the thrones of their minds (the temple), but the present presidential “seat” (Rev 13:2) shall very soon be given over for the duration to “the abomination of desolation” who will commence the “great tribulation” (Matt 24:15-21).


(2 Thes 2:5-10) Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth [“is restraining” NKJV] that he [head of the antichrist beast body] might be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed] [by God] in his [appointed] time. For the mystery of iniquity [“lawlessness” NKJV] doth already work: only he [God’s Holy Spirit] who now letteth [“restrains” NKJV] will let [restrain], until he be taken out of the way [of the coming (manifestation) of the entire Wicked body of antichrists]. And then shall that Wicked [Gk: lawless: transgressor] [composited antichrist beast body] be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed] [by God], whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth [“and out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword” Rev 19:15] [i.e., His Words, the Holy Spirit], and shall destroy with the brightness [Gk: manifestation: appearing] of his coming: Even him [the Wicked antichrist beast body], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power [Gk: force] and signs [Gk: indications] and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish [Gk: are destroyed fully]; because they received not the love of the truth [John 14:6], that they might be saved [Gk: (“safe”), delivered: healed, made whole] [i.e., have their Holiness returned to them].



(2 Thes 2:11-17) And for this cause God shall send [now has sent] them strong delusion [strong propaganda], that they should believe a lie [Gk: falsehoods: lies]: That they all might be damned [Gk: condemned, punished: avenged, judged] who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning [of “the foundation of the world” Rev 13:8] chosen you to salvation through sanctification [Gk: purification] of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel [Gk: good message: glad tidings], to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word [Gk: logos] [the Bible], or our epistle [Gk: letter]. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation [Gk: comfort] and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work. [1]

1.    (John 12:48) He that rejecteth [Gk: to set aside, disteem, violate: cast off, despises] me, and receiveth not my words [Gk: rhema] [revelations], hath one that judgeth [Gk: condemns, punishes: avenges, damns] him: the word [Gk: logos] [the Bible, the Law] that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.




Ps. You love to lie, I shall send you lies “to the full”
