2 Thessalonians 2

But we entreat of you, my brethren, in regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, and in respect to our being congregated unto him, that ye be not soon agitated in your mind, nor be troubled, neither by word, nor by spirit, nor by letter, as coming from us, that lo, the day of our Lord is at hand. Let no one deceive you in any way; because that day will not come, unless there previously come a defection, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who is an opposer, and exalteth himself above all that is called God and Worshipful; so that he also sitteth in the temple of God, as a God, and displayeth himself, as if he were God. Do ye not remember, that, when I was with you, I told you these things? And now, ye know what hindereth his being manifested in his time. For the mystery of the evil One already beginneth to be operative: and only, if that which now hindereth shall be taken from the midst; then at length will that evil One be revealed; whom our Lord Jesus will consume by the breath of his mouth, and will bring to naught by the visibility of his advent. For the coming of that evil One, is the working of Satan, with all power, and signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all the deceptiveness of iniquity, in them that perish; because they did not receive the love of the truth, by which they might have life. 11 Therefore God will send upon them the operation of deception, that they may believe a lie; 12 and that they all may be condemned, who believe not the truth, but have pleasure in iniquity. 13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always, on your account, my brethren beloved of our Lord, that God hath from the beginning chosen you unto life, through sanctification of the Spirit, and through faith in the truth. 14 For unto these it was, that God called you by our preaching; that ye might be the glory to our Lord Jesus the Messiah. 15 Therefore, my brethren, be established, and persevere in the precepts which ye have been taught, whether by word or by our epistle. 16 And may our Lord Jesus the Messiah himself, and God our Father, who hath loved us, and given us everlasting consolation and a good hope through his grace, 17 comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word, and in every good work.
