Sermon Notes 26 Apr 2020
Speaker: Deacon Danny Chua
Warning: Fake News! STAND FIRM!
2 Thessalonians 2:1-17
Fake News – Jesus has Returned??? (vv. 1-2)
Not Yet… First, the Rebellion & the Lawless Man (vv.3-12)
Before Jesus returns, there will be intense false teaching led by one key individual. Even many who claim to follow Christ will fall away from the Gospel truth.
(i) We don’t know exactly who this man of lawlessness is
(ii) But we’ll be able to recognize him through his actions
(iii) The Lord Jesus will easily crush him in the end (v. 8)
Church, STAND FIRM!
Motherly Assurance: God will surely bring us through! (vv. 13-14, 16-17)
Fatherly Exhortation: So, we must stand firm! (v. 15)
Questions for reflection:
- What was one truth or lesson you remember from the message? Why?
- In this climate or fear and anxiety, what false teachings are Christians at risk of believing?
- How can we help one another in our AGs to love the truth and stand firm in the Gospel?
