1 John 2:18; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-7

Warning Concerning Antichrists

18 Children, ait is the last hour, and as you have heard that bantichrist is coming, so now cmany antichrists have come. dTherefore we know that it is the last hour.


gLet no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, hunless the rebellion comes first, and ithe man of lawlessness1 is revealed, jthe son of destruction,2 who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, kproclaiming himself to be God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For lthe mystery of lawlessness mis already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.
