  With regard to the arrival of the Lord Jesus

excited by any spirit of prophecy or any declaration or any letter purporting
to come from me, to the effect that the Day of the Lord is already here.

 (2 Thessalonians 2:3)  Let nobody delude you into this belief,
whatever he may say. It will not come till the Rebellion takes place first of
all, with the revealing of the Lawless One, the doomed One,

 (2 Thessalonians 2:4)  the adversary who vaunts himself above and
against every so-called god or object of worship, actually seating himself in
the temple of God with the proclamation that he himself is God.
