The Man of Lawlessness

2 Thessalonians 2

The Man of LawlessnessDo not let anyone deceive you. 2 Thessalonians 2:3

The Man of Lawlessness will be revealed. He will oppose and exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped. He will set himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God. 2 Thessalonians 2:4

You know the power that is holding back the Man of Lawlessness. 2 Thessalonians 2:6

The secret power of lawlessness is already at work, but the One who now holds it back will continue to do so till He is taken away. 2 Thessalonians 2:7

The coming of the Man of Lawlessness will be in accordance with the work of Satan. The Man of Lawlessness will work all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs, and wonders. He will display every sort of evil. He will deceive those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie. All who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness will be condemned. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

The central point of the kingdom of Jesus Christ is a personal relationship with Him, not public usefulness to others. This time of soaking before God is being spent in getting rooted and grounded in Him, which may appear to be impractical, then you will remain true to Him whatever happens.- Oswald Chambers

May God Clear the Way for Us

1 Thessalonians 3

May God Clear the Way for UsMay God clear the way for us to come to you. 1 Thessalonians 3:11

May God Strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless. 1 Thessalonians 3:13

In every dimension in which you are not real, you will argue or evade the issue altogether rather than come to Jesus. – Oswald Chambers

(Are you still refusing to be baptized as an outward sign that you are his? If so, will you go to Christ now die to self and rise with him? May God clear a way for you to come to him.)

Urge Your Children to Live Lives Worthy of God

1 Thessalonians 2

Urge Your Children to Live Lives Worthy of GodAs a father, encourage, comfort, and urge your children to live lives worthy of God. 1 Thessalonians 2:11-12

The Holy Scripture is not the word of men, but the word of God which is at work in those who believe. 1 Thessalonians 2:13

We were torn away from you for a short time – in person, but not in thought. 1 Thessalonians 2: 17

I wanted to come to you again and again but Satan stopped us. You are our hope, our joy, our crown, and our glory in the presence of the Lord Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 2:19

I was afraid the tempter might have tempted you and our efforts might have been useless. 1 Thessalonians 2:6

Sin is deliberate and determined independence from God. The Bible alone deals with sin, not “sins.” The first thing Christ confronted in people was the heredity of sin. In the presentation of the Gospel message we have ignored this. – Oswald Chambers
