Commentary

1 .Now we request you, brethren,
.......with regard to
...........the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and
...........our gathering together to Him,

2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure
...or be disturbed either
.......by a spirit
.......or a message
.......or a letter as if from us,
...........to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.

3 Let no one in any way deceive you,
.......for it will not come
...........unless the apostasy comes first,
...........and the man of lawlessness is revealed,
...............the son of destruction,

4 ............who opposes and exalts himself
...................above every so-called god or object of worship,
.......................so that he takes his seat in the temple of God,
...........................displaying himself as being God.
