The Man of Lawlessness

1 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ1 and our being gathered to him,2 we ask you, brothers, 2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter3 supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord4 has already come.5 3 Don't let anyone deceive you6 in any way, for [that day will not come] until the rebellion7 occurs and the man of lawlessnessa is revealed,8 the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God9 or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.10 5 Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things?11 6 And now you know what is holding him back,12 so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back13 will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed,14 whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth15 and destroy by the splendor of his coming.16 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan17 displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders,18
