    II Thessalonians 2:1-17

    **Begin your lesson with prayer committing your time of study to the Lord. Thank Him for what He will show you through His Word.



    1. In what way did the study of II Thessalonians 1:1-12 help you to better understand:

    the Coming of the Lord




    the Suffering and the Glory of Believers




    the Future of the Ungodly




    2. Paul did not want the Thessalonian believers to think that the Day of the Lord had already come. Evidently somehow they were being taught that the day of God's wrath was upon them. View this in II Thessalonians 2:1-2. What do you see?





    Optional: Research II Thessalonians 2:2 and what Paul referred to that had shaken and troubled the believers in Thessalonica. Report your findings.






    3. According to II Thessalonians 2:3-4 what did Paul tell the Thessalonian believers that would keep them from being deceived concerning the Lord's return?




    a. What is revealed about this in II Thessalonians 2:5?




    4. Most Bible scholars believe II Thessalonians 2:6-12 provides information about the Antichrist and the influence he will have over unbelievers. Verses 9-10a in the NLT read, This evil man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of wicked deception to fool those who are on their way to destruction. Use the following verses to tell why these people will be deceived by him:

    a. II Thessalonians 2:10b




    b. II Thessalonians 2:11




    c. II Thessalonians 2:12




    d. What unbeliever comes to mind at this moment? Take a moment to pray that they would believe the truth and be saved by putting their faith in Jesus.




    Optional: There are differing views of II Thessalonians 2:7 and who Paul referred to that was restraining or hindering the Antichrist from being revealed. Research this and share your discoveries.





    5. Paul turned his attention from the fate of those who have rejected the truth and addressed those who were saved. Briefly summarize what he wrote to the Thessalonian believers recorded in II Thessalonians 2:13-14.




    a. Think back to when you first believed the truth and received salvation. What changes have you experienced since then as a result of the sanctifying process done by the Holy Spirit in your life?




    b. Write a note of thanksgiving to the Lord for saving you.



    6. Print II Thessalonians 2:15 phrase by phrase. Remember the word Therefore connects what comes next (verse 15) with what was just written (verses 13-14).




    a. Rewrite this verse in your own words.




    b. How does this confirm the importance of knowing, believing and obeying God's Word?




    c. Explain why God's Word is a deterrent to deception. Support your answer with scripture if possible.





    7. Paul closed this portion of his letter with a prayer for the Thessalonian church. What do you learn from II Thessalonians 2:16 about the Lord and believers?




    a. What did Paul want the Lord to do? see verse 17




    (1.) How have you experienced this in your life?




    8. Share what encouraged you the most from this week's lesson.
