2 Thessalonians, Day 2 Readings

The World Isn't Over Yet        

Today's reading is continues the exploration of judgment when Christ returns.  Some people, because they are suffering persecution for their beliefs, have started to believe that this the struggle prophesied at the Day of the Lord has already begun.  According to 2 Thessalonians, it has not.

Instead, when Jesus returns he will directly confront the earthly leader who has made himself a god and is leading people astray from the true God.  Until that time, Christians need to keep growing in their faith, using the suffering they are enduring to strengthen their works of faith.

Read 2 Thessalonians 2:1-17  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
