best defense against apostasy

2 Thessalonians 2:5-8 (JDV)

2 Thessalonians 2:5 Don’t you remember that when I was still with you I used to tell you about this?
2 Thessalonians 2:6 And you know what currently prevents this, so that he will be revealed in his season.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already achieving things, but the one now restraining will do so until he is out of the way,
2 Thessalonians 2:8 and then the lawless one will be revealed. The Lord Jesus will destroy him with the breath of his mouth and will eliminate him at the appearance of his coming.

best defense against apostasy

Paul predicts an apostasy to come. There have been numerous explanations of his prediction in this chapter, but I want to draw attention to some assertions from this passage.

First, the apostasy, led by the lawless one will occur between the time of Paul and the second coming.

Secondly, it will not be concluded until Christ destroys the leader of the apostasy at his return.

Until then, you and I need to be careful that we are not deceived. We need to stay true to the word of God, and continue proclaiming the gospel. Our best defense against apostasy is personal faithfulness.

Lord, may we be so true to your word that we allow no falsehood or faithlessness.
