DAILY FOUNTAIN DEVOTIONAL 10TH NOVEMBER 2022 STUDY
Living in the throes of sustained persecution, believers might reasonably ask, Where is God? When will Jesus help us? The fear mentioned in 2Thessalonians 2:1-2 suggests that some members of a First-Century Christian community answered these questions by saying that Jesus had already come (and perhaps somehow did not help them, because of neglect or an intent to punish them) or that ‘the Day of the Lord’ was immediately upon them.
The response that 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 gives – a confusing discourse about the rebellion, mystery of lawlessness, and powerful delusion that must precede Christ’s return – may not have soothed readers’ anxieties but only redirected them. The passage suggests that conditions will worsen before they improve. Do you hear the truth of God but continue to harden your heart? Is it possible that the more you hear the gospel, the more your heart hardens?
This is the “strong delusion” spoken of here. We are either prepared for the Lamb or for the Beast. The gospel either melts our hearts, grabs us and permeates our living or it doesn’t; there is no middle ground! Many of us grew up in church and have heard this over and over again.
But one new thing is that we could be more fit for hell now as we grow in lawlessness in a world that is full of lawlessness. What are you being prepared for? Let us not be ignorant about what is to come! Let us heed the warnings of what is to come and not be given over to pleasure and delight and lawlessness.
PRAYER: Almighty God, help me that I may not be deceived by pleasures and lawlessness of this age, Amen.
