They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. (2 Thessalonians 2:1–12)
In our continued study of 2 Thessalonians, we will look into the bible predictions of concerning a great deceiver who will oppose God and his church. How will we identify this deceiver? How can we keep from being duped ourselves? These are desperate questions that we need to answer if we are going to be ready for the second coming of our Lord.
