The One Thing (2 Thessalonians 2:5-12)

Today’s scripture: 2 Thessalonians 2:5-12

The Bible holds so much mystery, so much we just can’t understand in our humanity. I really don’t understand fully what will happen in the end times. I don’t fully understand why God will allow the Antichrist to take control of the world or why so many will be deluded by him.

All I do know is that Christ will rapture His church. The Antichrist—controlled by Satan—will rule the world and deceive millions. Then Christ will return to set up His kingdom and His enemies will be thrown into the lake of fire—forever.

And I know the only way to be assured of eternity with God—Father, Son, and Spirit—is to accept the gift of salvation through belief in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And then to follow, serve, and love the Lord your God—heart, soul, mind, and strength.

That’s the only thing I understand. And it’s really only the thing I need to understand.
