2 Thessalonians 1:4-5; 2 Thessalonians 1:11; 2 Thessalonians 2:8-10; 2 Thessalonians 2:14-15; 2 Thessalonians 3:4; 2 Thessalonians 3:6; 2 Thessalonians 3:17
therefore, we ourselves speak proudly of you among the churches of God for your perseverance and faith in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure.
This is a plain indication of God's righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering.
To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power,
Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;
that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,
and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.
It was for this He called you through our gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught, whether by word of mouth or by letter from us.
We have confidence in the Lord concerning you, that you are doing and will continue to do what we command.
Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from every brother who leads an unruly life and not according to the tradition which you received from us.
I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand, and this is a distinguishing mark in every letter; this is the way I write.
