THIS WEEK WE'RE IN:
THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS
part FOUR DIVE
It’s difficult to get around the elephant in the room in 1 and 2 Thessalonians, so let’s face the challenge head on. Who is the man of lawlessness, and what is Paul talking about in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-17?
As an End Times teacher, I realise that when you mention anything to do with End Times, the Antichrist or the Book of Revelation, most people start seeing beasts, burning cities, chaos, end times destruction and Armageddon. So, as you read 2 Thessalonians and you encounter the section on the man of lawlessness, don’t freak out!
The first thing I want you to remember when understanding the man of lawlessness is how he is defeated. Chapter 2:8 says, ‘And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming’.
