Book 53 2 Thessalonians 001:001 Paul, Silas, and Timothy: To the Church of the Thessalonians which is in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 001:002 May grace and peace be granted to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 001:003 Unceasing thanks are due from us to God on your behalf, brethren. They are appropriate because your faith is growing greatly, and the love of every one of you for all the others goes on increasing. 001:004 It so increases that we ourselves make honourable mention of you among the Churches of God because of your patience and faith amid all your persecutions and amid the afflictions which you are enduring. 001:005 For these are a plain token of God's righteous judgement, which has in view your being deemed worthy of admission to God's Kingdom, for the sake of which, indeed, you are sufferers. 001:006 A plain token of God's righteous judgement, I say, since it is a righteous thing for Him to requite with affliction those who are now afflicting you; 001:007 and to requite with rest you who are suffering affliction now rest with us at the re appearing of the Lord Jesus from Heaven, attended by His mighty angels. 001:008 He will come in flames of fire to take vengeance on those who have no knowledge of God, and do not obey the Good News as to Jesus, our Lord. 001:009 They will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, being banished from the presence of the Lord and from His glorious majesty, 001:010 when He comes on that day to be glorified in His people and to be wondered at among all who have believed, including you because you believed the testimony which we brought for your acceptance. 001:011 It is with this view also that we continually pray to our God for you, asking that He will count you worthy of His call, and by His mighty power fully gratify your every desire for what is truly good and make your work of faith complete; 001:012 in order that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and that you may be glorified in Him so wonderful is the grace of our God and of the Lord Jesus Christ! 002:001 But with respect to the Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to meet Him, we entreat you, brethren, 002:002 not readily to become unsettled in mind or troubled either by any pretended spiritual revelation or by any message or letter claiming to have been sent by us through fancying that the day of the Lord is now here. 002:003 Let no one in any way deceive you, for that day cannot come without the coming of the apostasy first, and the appearing of the man of sin, the son of perdition, who sets himself against, 002:004 and exalts himself above, every so called `god' or object of worship, and goes the length of taking his seat in the very temple of God, giving it out that he himself is God. 002:005 Do you not remember that while I was still with you I used to tell you all this? 002:006 And now you know what restrains him, in order that his true character may be revealed at his appointed time. 002:007 For lawlessness is already at work in secret; but only until the man who is now exercising a restraining influence is removed, 002:008 and then the Lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will sweep away with the tempest of His anger, and utterly overwhelm by the awful splendour of His Coming. 002:009 The appearing of the Lawless one will be attended by various miracles and tokens and delusive marvels for so Satan works 002:010 and by every kind of wicked deception for those who are on the way to perdition because they did not welcome into their hearts the love of the truth, so that they might be saved...
