2 Thessalonians 2:3-12
2:3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not arrive until the rebellion comes and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction.
2:4 He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, and as a result he takes his seat in God’s temple, displaying himself as God.
2:5 Surely you recall that I used to tell you these things while I was still with you.
2:6 And so you know what holds him back, so that he will be revealed in his own time.
2:7 For the hidden power of lawlessness is already at work. However, the one who holds him back will do so until he is taken out of the way,
2:8 and then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will destroy by the breath of his mouth and wipe out by the manifestation of his arrival.
2:9 The arrival of the lawless one will be by Satan’s working with all kinds of miracles and signs and false wonders,
2:10 and with every kind of evil deception directed against those who are perishing, because they found no place in their hearts for the truth so as to be saved.
2:11 Consequently God sends on them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false.
2:12 And so all of them who have not believed the truth but have delighted in evil will be condemned.
