false evidence

2 Thessalonians

false evidence

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 (JDV)

2 Thessalonians 2:9 The coming of the lawless one is based on Satan’s achieving energy, with all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders,
2 Thessalonians 2:10 and with every wicked deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the care for the truth and so be saved.
2 Thessalonians 2:11 For this reason God sends them an energy that achieves deviation so that they will believe the lie,
2 Thessalonians 2:12 so that all will be condemned — those who did not believe the truth but delighted in unrighteousness.

false evidence

This passage is a warning for this generation. We don’t seem to be as concerned about the truth as we are winning the argument. Paul told the Thessalonians that the apostasy will be empowered, and will manifest “all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders.” It will solidify false teaching by producing false evidence.

For that reason, we need to be more diligent than ever before. We need to base our understanding on what the Bible says, not on other people’s personal experience. Unfortunately, there is very little emphasis on sound exegesis in our generation.

Lord, drive us back to our knees, and to your word.
