2:3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not arrive until the rebellion comes 1 and the man of lawlessness 2 is revealed, the son of destruction. 3
2 Thessalonians 2:9-11Context
2:9 The arrival of the lawless one 4 will be by Satan’s working with all kinds of miracles 5 and signs and false wonders, 2:10 and with every kind of evil deception directed against 6 those who are perishing, because they found no place in their hearts for the truth 7 so as to be saved. 2:11 Consequently 8 God sends on them a deluding influence 9 so that they will believe what is false.
