1. So, his second coming will not happen now.

The end time preachings are popular now a days because people are curious to know things like news cast, not because they are godly. It seems that the church people were curious even in the first century. So, apostle Paul was addressing this matter. "2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him," Jesus will be coming to take us to be with him, and we will go to inherit his kingdom. It will be a great thing and a true believer should be anxiously looking forward to it. But look at the next verse. "2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand." Apostle tells them not to be shaken or troubled, etc. They seem to be afraid of this, may be because they are not ready to meet him. He says that it will not happen now; and do not believe it, even if we write it to you that he is coming.

2. Two things will happen before his coming.

"3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;" Apostle Paul says that the second coming day will not come until two things happen.  Almost all preachers whom I know preach that Jesus Christ will come at any day and all the signs of his coming is being fulfilled. But not even a single preacher believes that he is coming. So, why they preach the blatant lie? It is that the stronghold of the devil in them, to be politically correct, or religiously correct. Further, nobody in the congregation, that is us, believe that Jesus will come any minute. Do you actually believe that Jesus will come right now? I don't think so. Still, nobody says anything against it. This is proof that God secretly let Satan have control over all religious churches. Preachers believe Satan and preach what he tells them to preach. Matthew 24:6-11 Jesus says the end will not come even though so many things will happen. But preachers preach just the opposite, saying that the end will come at any time. "4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." So, somebody other than God sits in all worship places, and tells preachers what to preach. They are like the serpent at the garden of Eden, that taught Eve and encouraged her to eat the forbidden fruit, and these preachers preach what Satan tells them. No human being can oppose and exalt himself above God. No man lives from the beginning with God up to now and further, it is possible only to Lucifer the devil. So, God says that the spirit of Lucifer enters every worship place in the world, including Christians churches. He is not omnipotent or omnipresent, and so he cannot be present all over the world at one time. But he has 1/3rd of the whole angels as demons, and so he has enough demons to sit in every worship as proxy for him, and to receive the worship for him. Further, God says in a few places in the bible that God will not come into buildings build by men, that is God will not be in churches. "Acts 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, 49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord:" (Correction: Slip of lounge; In the video I said heaven is the footstool instead of earth is.) So, this is also the plan of God. "5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?" See, apostles have preached about Satan sitting in churches, even when they were preaching them the gospel. So, this is also a very important doctrine of the apostles.

3. Who prevents revealing Satan in churches?

It is very hard to believe that such a thing may happen. Further, it is more difficult to believe that this thing is the plan of God. "6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time." It is set up by God, and God is the one, who is keeping it secret. "7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way." It is two thousand years already, still God did not take him away. God allowed Satan to be in churches even from the first century, and Satan will be there until God decide to take him out of there. "8 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:" This verse has more secret. That is, when Jesus Christ will come to rule in the millennium, he will throw Satan into the bottomless pit of darkness and shut him there for one thousand years. So, as soon as Satan is revealed, rapture will take place, tribulation will begin, it will be for three and a half years. God will follow up as the great tribulation for another three and a half years. Just following that millennium reign will begin. You may study the details in this link: "Rapture."

4. Satan came in with power, signs, and wonders.

By the way, it is happening for more than two thousand years already. How do the people not even know it? "9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved." Why is it called 'lying wonders'? Because the preacher receive power from Satan, do it in the name of God, and lie that they are servants of God. So, as God was doing signs and wonders with his power, God allowed Satan also to do the same kinds of signs and wonders, with unrighteous people who are deceivers, who do not love the truth. The same thing continues even now. These preachers, who do not love the truth of God, are servants of Satan, under the pretense of the servants of God. "11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:" It applies both to preachers as well as to people. God gives them delusion to believe Satan and his lie and allows them to act as servants of God, and as believers of God. (Correction: Slip of the tongue, in the video instead of saying if you are not righteous, you belong to Satan, I said that you belong to God. Old age may be the problem.) "12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." They will put up a show for now, but God will destroy them in the lake of fire. In the end they will be damned.

5. God will establish you in every good word and work.

Thessalonians were genuine for these two reasons. "13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:" If we believe the truth, God will sanctify our spirit, and save us. Here is a link for this: "Sanctify" "14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ." Why the apostle say that God calls you by our gospel. One, because the story of Jesus Christ is presented as the gospel. This is fake gospel, which will not give the glory of Jesus Christ, but take you to the lake of fire. Glory of Jesus Christ is as the glow around a big giant flame of fire, like the sun in the sky, which shines as a big white glow of splendor in heaven. "15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle." Thessalonians were taught by the apostles; most people, even now, are being taught by Satan, who taught Eve at the Garden of Eden. The apostles taught the word and shared the truth even by letters or epistles. "16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace," Mostly we do not realize that grace is the richest blessing we need to lead a spirit filled life. Even if we realize it, most of us take it for granted that we already have grace from God when we do not have grace. It is the biggest mistake most of us make. I am not here to argue whether grace is given to us as free gift or not, but it has condition. If you are not humble in the sight of God, God will resist you, and he will not give you grace. Most of us are proud people, and so, we do not have grace. So, it is the best thing that we must become humble ourselves before people and receive grace from God. If we study the bible carefully, we will see that it is through grace, God gives many gifts, power, and even hope. Grace by itself is not a magic as Christians think. But if we work through grace, we shall be saved and secured. "17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work." If God gives us grace, he will establish us. The proof is that we will speak the common truth in life and the true word of God, we will obey God's commands, and we will do good works. Those who claims "not by works" are of Satan.

6. Love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

This is the next chapter. We see that the apostles as well as Thessalonians were persecuted by Jews as well as by false Christians, who do not have truth and faith. "3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: 2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith." But God promises that he will establish them in himself to inherit his kingdom in heaven. "3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil. 4 And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you. 5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ." Apostles were confident that Thessalonians will obey their commands, but as they have said that there may be bad apples. So, it is a caution. "6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us." The command is that if anybody live disorderly, but not as godly, withdraw from him, which is to reject him from their fellowship.

7. We live orderly, make us a sample for you to follow us.

The following are simple instructions and can be understood without explanation. "7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; 8 Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: 9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. 10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat." The instruction to them is not to live like a parasite and not to exploit others. "11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. 13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing." You live by doing good to others. "14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. 15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother." If anyone does not obey the word, just remove him from your fellowship; and let him belongs to the world. "16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all." God is the Lord of peace, let him give you his peace. Gospel in not to invade, but to preach. If others reject the gospel, you reject them and keep moving, but please do not pursue after them. You live for God and let them live for the world. Do not fight them. But do not accept them as brethren in your fellowship as godly people. Let them worship another Jesus; and let us worship the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God in the omnipotent Spirit. Let us worship God in Spirit and in truth. "17 The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Fake grace is deception. True grace is the great blessing.
