Antichrist

Man of Sin - Part 2

By Stacey Cox

There are numerous references in the Bible to the Antichrist. In some cases, whole chapters are devoted to him, but we rarely hear sermons that deal with him in light of his rise prior to the Lord Jesus’ return. This is probably due to the fact that most ministers are fearful of being dubbed the next Harold Camping. But we must not hold back from highlighting and describing his characteristics, as described in the Bible, and the destruction he will unleash prior to Christ’s second advent. That’s what we will set out to do Sunday. Hope you enjoy as we continue our study in 2 Thessalonians!

The Man of Sin

By Stacey Cox

People have a keen interest in the future. “Itching ears” are evidenced by the popularity of astrology, fortune-tellers, and political prognosticators. Christians aren’t immune to a fascination of the future. But many are confused as to what to believe. Depending upon one’s perspective, any number of angles can be taken regarding ‘the signs of the end times’ mentioned in Scripture. None is more subject to speculation than the sign of the coming “man of sin” or the Antichrist. What does the Bible have to say about this figure? What is his role in God’s work of redemption between our Lord’s first and second advents? That’s where Paul takes us Sunday, as we continue our study in 2 Thessalonians with “The Man of Sin.”
