Bible Mysteries (8)

Bible Reading: 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12
Sunday, April 26, 2015

Bible Mysteries (8)Not all of the New Testament mysteries are about good news. Some tell us bad news, but we need to understand them. Why? Because they are a threat to our Christian life!

The mystery in 2 Thessalonians, chapter 2, is bad news. Here Paul tells about a “Man of Evil” who will appear (verse 6). Paul says he will come when people turn away from God (verse 3). This evil man will be against God (verse 4) and will have the power of the devil to deceive people (verses 9-10). But in the end, this evil man will be destroyed by God (verse 8).

This mystery reminds us of Jesus’ teaching about false teachers in Matthew 24:24 and John’s writing about the “enemy of Christ” in 1 John 2:18. This was a hidden mystery in the Old Testament. But now God has shown us this truth. So when this “Man of Evil” appears, we can follow God and make right decisions. — HLN

“He will stand against and put himself above everything that people worship or think is worthy of worship. He will even go into God’s Temple and sit there, claiming that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:4

PRAYER: Lord, I want to learn Your truth so I will not be deceived. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
