So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure :
Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer :
And then shall that Wicked be revealed , whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish ; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved .
Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore , brethren, stand fast , and hold the traditions which ye have been taught , whether by word, or our epistle.
