    Concerning the coming of 1 and 2 Thessalonians book lawless Antichrist, Paul says that the Antichrist's activities are already in operation and would be carried out more fully except that he is now being restrained. In 1 and 2 Thessalonians you'll learn important truths about Christ's coming -- specifically regarding the rapture and the Antichrist. As they saw it, Paul was mistaken on this point, which then caused them to wonder whether he might also be mistaken on other points as well. Instead, they balanced their past faith conversion and repentance from idolatry with their present pursuit of love and their embrace of the future hope of the return of Christ to save believers from the coming wrath that would one day be unleashed on the world All rights reserved.

    Together, these letters form an eight-chapter refutation to the idea that eschatology is impractical. It also exhorts us not to be idle and to work for what we have. At some point after the first letter was sent, probably soon, some of the Thessalonicans grew concerned over whether those who had died would share in the parousia. It also provides crucial insights for young pastors and anybody involved in church ministry, as Paul reveals ministry strategies worthy of imitating.

    We too need prodding 2 Thess. At some point after the first letter was sent, probably soon, some of the Thessalonicans grew concerned over whether those who had died would share in the parousia. This letter covers the same topics as 1 Thessalonians, but in a sterner manner. Much of his teaching on the end times in this letter is based on the prophet Daniel and his visions. We don't need to tell them about it, 9 for they keep talking about the wonderful welcome you gave us and how you turned away from idols to serve the living and true God. Seeing as how this series of events has not yet happened, his argument reads, Christ cannot have returned yet.
