2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering together unto him,
The Above Verse Refers To The Rapture. This Is The Catching Away (Caught Up, Taking Away-Gathering) Of Bible Obeying Christians When Jesus Christ Appears. He Appears As A Hen To Gather Her Chickens (Play On Word For "Christians") Under Her Loving And Protective Wing(s) (Psalm 91:1-16; Matthew 24:29-34; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Matthew 25:1-12).
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.
Trouble- This Refers To The Great Tribulation "Time Of Trouble". It Will Begin As Soon As Christians Are Raptured Into Heaven (Daniel 12:1-10).

Just As It Is Today There Are False Prophets, Teachers, Revelators And Dreamers Who Teach That The Day Of The Lord (Christ, Rapture Revelation 1:10) Is At Hand Or About To Happen. These False "Prophets" Refuse To Obey The Bible's Order Of Things That Must Occur BEFORE Christians Can Rapture.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Let No Man Deceive You- This Man Is The Man Beast (Leviathan). He Is Pharaoh And Will Be Possessed By Satan The Dragon Serpent Devil. Just As Satan Possessed Judas He Will Possess The Man Beast. This Man Beast Will Also Call Himself God Making Himself A False Christ (Matthew 24:3-5; Revelation 12:9; Genesis 3:13; Genesis 3:1-7; Revelation 13:18; Ezekiel 29:3; Isaiah 27:1; Psalm 104:26; Job 41:1; Psalm 74:14; Revelation 13:1-5; Revelation 13:1-18; Luke 22:1-7; John 10:20-33).
Falling Away FIRST- The Key Prophetic Word "First" Refers To The First Resurrection Which Is The Rapture. This "Falling Away" Is The "Taking Or Catching" Away Of The Rapture.

Falling Away- This "Falling Away" Also Implies The Betrayal Of Most "Christians" And Israelis To Chose Allegiance To Satan's Beast Above Allegiance (Obedience) To Jesus Christ (John 19:12-15).
Revealed-The Apostle Paul Associates The Rapture With The Revealing Of This Man. In Other Words Once God's "Ark" Of Christians Appear In Heaven And God (Jesus) Closes Heaven's Doors The Flood Of Evil In This "Man Of Sin (Beast)" Will Attack All "Left Behind" Servants Of God Who Were Disobedient (Matthew 25:1-12; Genesis 7:15-21; Revelation 11:12-13, 19; Daniel 11:40-44; Jude 1:6-First Resurrection Estate-Rapture; Matthew 22:30-All Who Enter Heaven Are "As" The Angeles; Psalm 104:1-5; Deuteronomy 4:24; 1 John 3:2; John 17:17-21; 2 Peter 2:4-6; 2 Peter 1:4; Revelation 13:1-18; Revelation 17:1-16; Revelation 12:1-16).
Man Of Sin And Son Of Perdition- Why Did Jesus Called Judas Iscariot The "Son Of Perdition"? Judas And The Coming Beast Are "Men" That Satan The Dragon Devil" Possessed Or Will Possess. Judas Also Betrayed Jesus For Filthy Lucre (Material Wealth). Judas Also Betrayed Jesus To Mosiac Law Keeping Priests. Since Jesus Christ Fulfilled And Ended The Laws Of Moses Judas Created A Gross Sin. Any Mosaic Lawkeeper Or Priests Will Go Off Into Perdition (Destruction). The Only Priest Planet Earth Needs Is Jesus. Any Other Priest Is A Filthy Idol (Image-Idolatry) (John 17:12; Luke 22:1-7; John 10:20-30; Matthew 5:15-17; Romans 10:4; 2 Corinthians 3:1-17; Revelation 17:8-11; 2 Peter 3:7; 1 Timothy 6:9; 1 Timothy 3:3-8; Titus 1:7; 1 Peter 5:2; Hebrews 3:1; Hebrews 4:14; Revelation 13:11, 14-15; Exodus 20:1-6; 1 John 5:21; Leviticus 19:4).
An "Idol (Image, Idolatry)" Is Anyone Or Anything That Stands Where Only God (Jesus) Should Stand. Only Jesus Christ Is The Mediator Between God And Man. Any One Else Claiming To Hold Such A Position Is A Deceiving Idol (Idolator). No One Should Take A Position Where Eyes Are "Lifted Up" Upon Them (1 Timothy 2:5; Matthew 24:15; James 4:1-10; Matthew 7:1-5; Matthews 23:5-10; John 3:14; Acts 12:21-25).
We Now Have A Clear Understanding Of Paul's Intentions In Writing 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2.
Let Us Continue With 2 Thessalonians 2:4
2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 2 Thessalonians 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
This Temple Of God Is Not In The Middle East.

2 Thessalonians 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
That WithHoldeth Or That Which Prevents This Satanic Beast From Being Revealed- Until God Raptures Christians From This "Sodomite" Earth No "Man Of Sin (Beast)" Revealing Or God's Fiery Judgment Can Begin (Revelation 11:1-12; Genesis 19:1, 17-22).
In His Time- God's Mysteries Are Merely "Heavenly Things" We Humans Can Not Know Until God's Appointed Time Of Its Revelation Occurs (Matthew 13:1-22).
2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way.
He Be Taken Out Of The Way- This Is The "Falling Away (Rapture)" Mentioned At 2 Thessalonians 2:3. This Is The Taking Away (Caught Up, Catching, Carried) Of Christians Into Heaven On The Day Of The Lord (Lord's Day Revelation 1:10).
Mystery- God's Mysteries Are Merely "Heavenly Things" We Humans Can Not Know Until God's Appointed Time Of Its Revelation Occurs (Matthew 13:1-22).
Iniquity (Work)- These Are The Works Of The Mosaic Law Which Is A Gross Sin Against The Grace, Mercy And Love Of God Through Jesus Christ. Any "Worker Or Iniquity (Mosaic Law(s))" Is A Gross Sin Against God And Can Not Enter Heaven (Matthew 7:13-29; Matthew 25:1-44; Romans 3:27; Romans 9:32; Galatians 2:16; Galatians 3:1-15; Ephesians 2:5-8; 1 John 1:7-10; Galatians 5:19).
The AntiChrist Beast Will Be A King, A False Christ, And A Person Demanding That Works Are Necessary To Please God. He Will Be A Type Of Mosaic Law Keeping Priest.
2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
At The End Of The Great Tribulation Jesus Will Appear With His Saints To Totally Burn Satan's Kingdom Away With Fire (Revelation 19:1-11; Malachi 4:1-6; Jude 1:14-25; 2 Peter 3:1-18).
2 Thessalonians 2:10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2 Thessalonians 2:9 [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 2 Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2 Thessalonians 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
The Beast Will Be Possessed By Satan And Have The Dragon's Power (Revelation 13:1-18).
God's Love Is Grace Not Works. This Is The Only Truth That Can Save Humans Into Heaven. Any Human Who Supports The Works Of The Law Or That Human Works Gain Heavenly Entry Do Not Know God Nor Are They Approved By God. They Don't Have The Holy Spirit But Have The "Spirit Of Error (Iniquity)" (John 4:24; John 14:4-7; John 3:1-8; John 14:17; John 15:26; John 16:13; 1 John 4:6; Ephesians 2:5-8; Matthew 7:13-29; Matthew 25:1-12).
Any Follower Of Almighty God Can Not Base Their Convictions On "Things That Happen(ed)". Any Heaven Bound Christian Must Place Their Faith And Loyalties In God's Word. The Devil Is A Deceiving Liar And Many Persons Have Become His Servants Because They Didnot Allow God's Word To Be Their Lamp (Light) (Matthew 4:1-11; Psalm 119:105; Hebrews 4:11-12; John 1:1; John 14:26; 2 Peter 1:20-21; John 8:32-44; Revelation 12:7-12; Genesis 3:13; John 17:17).
Many Humans Make The Mistake Of Saying "I'm A Good Person. God Knows My Heart. God Understands My Intensions And/Or Cirumstances". This Is A Hell Bound Lie. Any Human Who Does Not Obey God's Word As It Is Explained By The Holy Spirit Will Not Enter Heaven. They Will Be Forsaken By God And Damned (John 14:26; Luke 6:46; 2 Peter 1:20-21; John 15:10-15; Jeremiah 17:9-10; Romans 5:12; Jeremiah 17:5; Jeremiah 9:8, 14, 26; Matthew 25:1-12; Matthew 7:13-29).
2 Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 2 Thessalonians 2:14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 2 Thessalonians 2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given [us] everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, 2 Thessalonians 2:17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work
May We Christians All Stand Fast In Jesus Christ. May We Fully Shun All The "Works" Of The Mosaic Law And Perservere In The Work Of God's Good Holy Word (Bible) And His Amazing Grace Through The Precious Shed Blood Of Jesus Christ (John 15:10-15; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Ephesians 2:5-8; Romans 5:9; 1 John 1:7-10; Romans 10:4; Matthew 5:16-17; 2 Corinthians 3:1-17).
