About 2Thessalonians

2Thessalonians 1:2 Grace unto you and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Emmanuel.Christ.

2Thessalonians 1:3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith grows exceedingly and the charity of every one of you all toward each other abounds.

2Thessalonians 1:4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure.

2Thessalonians 1:5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer..(they were agonizing over the trials they were presently going through)

2Thessalonians 1:6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you.

2Thessalonians 1:6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation.(original 'pressure so as to wear one away').to them that trouble.(original 'to press hard upon so as to wear you out').you..(in other words 'tit for tat'; Hebrews 10:30).(God knows how to deal with those who are troubling you)

2Thessalonians 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Emmanuel shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

2Thessalonians 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Emmanuel.(comes from the root word in the Old Testament, meaning 'the existing One saves, rescues', rescues us from our egos which have drowned out high consciousness things coming from our souls).shall be.(words 'shall' and 'be' not in original).revealed from heaven.(the word 'heaven' is a word used so humans could comprehend this higher realm of existence as being not from the realm they live in, but rather, the invisible realm; *).with his mighty angels,.(it helps here to know that when it talks of His coming it's about the spirit in us {*} and also a coming to Earth, these higher consciousness frequencies {all is frequencies and vibration out of the stillness}, so the verse could be worded.'And to those of you having a hard time, hang in there, that is, hang in with the higher consciouness that Emmanuel.{the word Emmanuel}.came to reveal)

2Thessalonians 1:8 In flaming fire.('flaming fire', a time for purity).taking vengeance on them that know not God and that obey.(original denotes.'refuse to hear {*} and therefor do not care to apply').not the gospel of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ..(?).(?)

2Thessalonians 1:9 Who shall be punishedwith everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his power..(one needs to be in the presence of the Lord in order to have the power that can come into him; the 'glory of his power' means God's way of thinking and being, that is, how God is)

2Thessalonians 1:10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints.(*).and to be admired in all them that believe, because our testimony among you was believed, in that day.

2Thessalonians 1:11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness and the work of faith with power.

2Thessalonians 1:12 That the name of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ may be glorified in you and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Emmanuel the Christ.

2Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech.(request with importance).you, brethren, by.(of, regarding).the coming of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ and by our gathering together unto.(original could just as easily be 'in'; all one body).him,

2Thessalonians 2:2 That you be not soon shaken in mind or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand..(someone or more probably some group was out to dissuade the people of the Creator from the reality of the occurrence of the coming of Christ in 70 A.D.)

2Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means. For that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first.and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive.(original for 'deceive' is 'to cheat you away from' or 'cheat you out of').you by any means. For that day shall not come, except there come a falling away.(a falling away is a forsaking, as happened to Adam can happen to us also if we're not on the qui vive); how to ensure that it doesn't happen to you).first.and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.

Before the day star can arise in your heart, one has to begin to fall away from the low consciousness ego level by examining his dark side, which examination is simply giving some attention on it, which attention shines the light on it and light dissipates darkness.

The son of perdition is the son of hell and who may this be? Could it be the unenlightened us that make our lives a living hell by remaining in low consciousness? As.Barnes Notes.explains: Like in other passages in the Bible, this doesn't refer just to one man, but rather successions of men with similar attitudes of evil. The other passages are such as:.Daniel 7:25; 11:36; the beast as mentioned in Daniel chapters 7, 8 and Revelation 13; the same is true of the "woman arrayed in purple and scarlet" (Revelation 17:4) which cannot refer to a single woman, but is the emblem of a continued corrupt administration.

2Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

2Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God.(mankind always wants to control his own life in the way he alone sees fit to, but man doesn't realize this}; it's talking of an attitude, selfwilled, proud, feeling able to fully direct one's own course in life; this is life at the ego level).sits in the temple of God.(1Corinthians 3:16), showing himself.(or, showing to himself).that he is God.(or, like God).
   (like Adam who was not deceived, but made a conscious decision to break from God in order to be a god unto himself, to be in control of a 'world' he imagined it to be, that is, after his ways, his ways of ordinary consciousness, which is a low consciousness; Adam desired to self-direct his life even after he knew that God's guidance was better. We too have been duped by the greatest trick of all time, that of seeking what's best for the SELF, rather than seeking God and let Him take care of your 'self' and doing what's best for all mankind in daily life. So man today seeks a world for himself wherein he is the final authority over it in the things he sees affecting him. Thus we see the power of positive thinking, the power of man's attempt to dominate all that concerns him, to subjugate others and even nature {pollutiion everywhere, irresponsibility everywhere} to his greed infested will. Adam walked with God, for awhile, then he decided to begin to walk as god. He was deceived into an independent sense of self-importance. The slide downward had begun and Adam was the one who passed his attitude onto mankind {Romans 5:12} and so we have a life and societies built upon the error of Adam; Eve, the mother of all women, has 'been with' all women since and all women since Eve have lived in this world of Adam)

2Thessalonians 2:5,6 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?...And now you know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

2Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work. Only he who now lets will let.(*), until he be taken out of the way..(original for words 'he who now lets will let until he be taken out of the way' is 'now it holds fast until it's out of the way')

2Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming.

2Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked.(original for 'Wicked' is lawless ones {without what law?.Galatians 6:2}).be revealed.(it has to be revealed clearly because people have been duped since the beginning of them on the Earth:.Revelaton 12:9), whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth.(the words of higher consciousness, which are the things of spirit, will causeconviction in the hearts of those earlier avoiding them, that is, the ways that they had before been living life with, which are those principles they really simply accepted without much thinking and so those things caused hurt to themselves and to others, the things like war, hate, selfishness, greed, etc:.Proverbs 6:12-15).and shall destroy with the brightness.(original for 'brightness' is simply, 'appearing', that is, Christ's appearing {2Peter 1:19} in the hearts of people leads to destruction of the ways of evil they had previously been thinking and living in their lives; note that it's the spirit of his mouth and the brightness of His coming that destroys evil, the spirit being the words which when believed, bring the brightness of His coming, that is, the brightness or the light that comes once one is in God:.1Timothy 6:16; John 14:26).of his coming.

This force for evil that influences the mass mind consciousness, that we all have contributed to, is rendered ineffective once one is of higher consciousness. That's what it's all about, becoming of higher consciousness. Being of high consciousness is having the consciousness of Creator-God in us.

2Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Thessalonians 2:9 Even him.(words 'even him' are not in original), whose.(original for word 'whose' is 'which').coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,.(that is, the coming of evil into the world comes from the dark side influenced collective consciousness of mankind)

2Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish because they received not the love of the truth that they might be saved..(actually, awakened to the state that they already are 'saved'); we were saved before the universe was created {2Timothy 1:9}, but it's the same as not being saved if one is oblivious to that fact; word 'saved' here in the original; one's ego nature keeps him in a state of separation from higher consciousness ways; but wasn't it Emmanuel's death and resurrection that saves us?).

2Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.

Paraphrased, 'God will send upon them a guiling swayer (the dark side) so that they'll accept falsehoods':.Psalms 119:69-72; not that God specifically sends this, but it's an automatic thing resulting from their action, because the universal law of you reap what you sow is always working.

2Thessalonians 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2Thessalonians 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness..(one on the unrighteours road will be off track for finding the truth {what is truth?}; the original has it and with explanations,.'those who {are not careful with information end up believing lies {their own lies [verses 10, 11 above] and those lies pumped into them because they are not on the royal road of good for themselves and others}} believe lies.{verse 11} {believe lies to the point of living them to the hurt of themselves {*} and others, sometime, someway, somehow the hurts come back} have separated themselves to live the way of unrighteousness'.{which is the way their ego dictates; the way of me first, the way of not realizing we are all one and all in the same universal invisible energy})

2Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved.(dearly {of great value} loved).of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation.(?).through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth.

2Thessalonians 2:14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ.

2Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word or our epistle.

2Thessalonians 2:16 Now our Lord Emmanuel the Christ himself and God, even our Father, which has loved us and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace.(Acts 20:32).,

2Thessalonians 2:17 God will comfort your hearts and stablish you in every good word and work.

How to be stable:.Matthew 24:12 notes.

2Thessalonians 3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course and be glorified, even as it is with you.

2Thessalonians 3:2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men. For all men have not faith.

2Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you and keep you from evil.

2Thessalonians 3:5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patient waiting.for Christ.

2Thessalonians 3:5 And the Lord direct your hearts.(guidance from God).into the love of God and into the patient waiting.for.(words 'waiting' and 'for' not in original; means, into the patience of Christ, which is one of the higher consciousness qualities of the Father-Creator that Emmanuel came to Earth to reveal).Christ..(Hebrews 8:10)

2Thessalonians 3:6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother that walks disorderly and not after the tradition which he received of us.

2Thessalonians 3:7 For yourselves know how you ought to follow us. For we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you.

2Thessalonians 3:8 Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought, but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you.

2Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work.(talking here about not being lazy and uninterested in life; a lazy bum; not say, a busy retired person or person who can't work for whatever reason; work means engaged in something gainful in importance, that is, both you and others can gain something from your efforts; it doesn't just mean earning money), neither should he eat.

2Thessalonians 3:11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

2Thessalonians 3:12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Emmanuel Christ, that with quietness they work and eat their own bread.

2Thessalonians 3:13  But you brethren, be not weary in well doing.

2Thessalonians 3:14,15 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.(original means 'to note it in himself toward changing')...Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

2Thessalonians 3:16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.

2Thessalonians 3:18 The grace of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ be with you all. Amen..(the second epistle to the Thessalonians was written from Athens, Greece)
