Before The Day of the Lord

November 22, 2020

Introduction   1 Thessalonians 5  NIV  The Day of the Lord

Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 

While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

…    For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

 

Rev. 6    15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, [j]the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks,

“Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!

 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

 

First:   2 Thessalonians 2 NIV  Do Not Be Deceived

verse 1   Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him,

…  not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us …

 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way,  

 

D is one of satan’s greatest tools.   

Jesus said in Matt. 24  “Take heed that no one deceives you.   

1 Corinthians 6:9-10

2 Tim 3:13  

Rev. 13:11-16  describes how the false prophet will deceive many people into following the antichrist. 

 

Second:  There will be a great f alling away. 

2 Thess. 2:3    For that Day     (the day of God’s wrath… )  … will not come unless the falling away comes first,  

1 Timothy 4:1  Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,

Hebrews 3:12-13  “… the deceitfulness of sin.”

 

Third:  2 Thessalonians 2:3-4   The Man of Sin

3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs

and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 

 

What Will He Do? 

4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.  

Daniel 9:27   The ruler (this antichrist)  will make a treaty with the people for a period of one set of seven, but after half this time, he will put an end to the sacrifices and offerings. And as a climax to all his terrible deeds, he will set up a sacrilegious object that causes desecration, until the fate decreed for this defiler is finally poured out on him.”  

What Is Keeping All Of This From Happening Right Now?

Fourth:    2 Thessalonians 2:7  He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.   

Who is Restraining the antichrist?   The Holy Spirit of God! 

7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 

8 And then the lawless one will be revealed

 

Will the antichrist get away with his wickedness?   

NO! 

7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.   8 And then the lawless one will be revealed

whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,

 

      All the wicked ness you see in the world, All the deception, all the lies, all the tricks and schemes and all the manipulation – This is all the work of satan.

He is working –

            10  with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  

 

  • It is imperative that we, as born again evangelicals preach, teach and share  the WORD of God,  and help people find salvation in Jesus Christ,

Acts 4:12 NKJV     12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
