Second Thessalonians Tesloniqyah Bet
To The Believing Remnant Of Yisrael
1 Shaul and Sila and Timtheous, to the kehilla of Tesloniqyah in YHUH our Abba and The Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach:
2 Chen to you and shalom, from YHUH our Abba and The Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach.
3 We are bound to give hodu to YHUH always for you, Yisraelite brothers, as it is proper because your emunah grows exceedingly and the ahava of kol Yisrael towards each other abounds more and more;
4 So that we ourselves boast in you in the kehellot of YHUH for your patience and emunah even in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure:
5 Which is clear evidence of the tzadik mishpat of YHUH yet to come to the olam hazeh, that you may be counted worthy of the malchut of YHUH, for which you also now suffer:
6 Seeing it is a tzadik thing with YHUH to repay tribulation to them that trouble you;
7 And to you who are undergoing tribulation rest with us, when The Master YAHUSHA shall be revealed from the shamayim with His mighty heavenly malachim,
8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not YHUH and that obey not The Besorah of our Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach:
9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction away from the presence of YHUH and from the tifereth of His Power;
10 When He shall come to be esteemed in His Yisraelite kidushim and to be admired by all those who believe in that Yom because our testimony among you was believed.
11 Therefore also we make tefillot always for you, that our Ahloha would count you worthy of this calling, to fulfill all the tov pleasure of His rachamim and the work of emunah with Power:
12 That the Name of our Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach may be lifted up in you and you in Him, according to the unmerited chen of our Ahloha and The Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach.
2 Now we urge you, Yisraelite brothers, by the coming of our Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach and by our gathering together to Him,
2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or troubled, neither by any ruach, nor by man’s word, nor by letter as from us, that the Yom of Moshiach’s coming is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that Yom shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin will be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called Ahloha, or that is worshipped; so that he showing himself as Ahloha, sits in the Hekel of Ahloha, declaring himself to be Ahloha.
5 Remember, that, when I was still with you, I told you these things?
6 And now you know what withholds this; so that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the sod of Torah-less-ness does already work: only he who now prevents it, will prevent it, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Torah-less one be revealed, whom YAHUSHA shall consume with The Ruach of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of s.a.tan with all unclean power and signs and lying wonders,
10 With all deceit and unrighteousness in those that are perishing; because they received not the ahava of the emet that they might be saved.
11 And for this reason YHUH shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe THE LIE:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the emet, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give hodu always to YHUH for you, Yisraelite brothers beloved of The Master because YHUH has from Beresheeth chosen you as bikkurim to be saved through the set apartness of The Ruach and emunah in the emet:
14 To which He called you by our Besorah, to obtain the tifereth of our Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach.
15 Therefore, Yisraelite brothers, stand fast and hold on to the mitzvoth and the traditions that you have been taught, whether by word, or our letter.
16 Now our Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach Himself and YHUH, even our Abba, who have loved us and have given us everlasting comfort and tov tikvah through unmerited chen,
17 Comfort your levavot and establish you in every tov Word of the Keetvay HaKadosh and in mitzvoth.
3 Finally, Yisraelite brothers, make tefillot for us, that The Word of YHUH may spread rapidly and be praised, even as it has with you:
2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not emunah.
3 But The Master YHUH is faithful, who shall establish you and shomer you from evil.
4 And we have confidence in YHUH about you, that you both do and will do the things that we command you.
5 And The Master direct your levavot into the ahava of YHUH and into the patient waiting for Moshiach.
6 Now we command you, Yisraelite brothers, in the Name of our Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach that you withdraw yourselves from every Yisraelite brother that has his halacha disorderly and not after the tradition that he received from us.
7 For you know how you should follow us: for we ourselves behaved not disorderly among you;
8 Neither did we eat any man’s lechem without paying for it; but worked with labor and toil lyla and yom, that we might not burden any of you:
9 Not because we have no power to do so, but to make ourselves an example for you to follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some who walk among you disorderly, not working at all,but are busybodies.
12 Now those that are like that we command and exhort by our Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach, that with shalom they should work and eat their own lechem.
13 But you, Yisraelite brothers, be not weary in well doing.
14 And if any man does not obey our word by this letter, note that man and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.
15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a Yisraelite brother.
16 Now the Ahloha of shalom Himself give you shalom always by all means. YHUH be with you all.
17 The greeting of Shaul with my own hand, which is my mark in every letter: so I write.
18 The unmerited chen of our Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach be with you all. Ahmein. X
2ᵑͩ 1:6 The enemies of the Good News will get their reward during the Great Tribulation.
2ᵑͩ 2:1 Gathering into the kingdom, not a flight to rapture. In Hebraic understanding this is the kevutz galuyot, or the return and gathering of Israel’s exiles from the four winds. This is the subject here.
2ᵑͩ 2:3 Apostasia in Greek, rebellion in Aramaic.
2ᵑͩ 2:3 The revealing of anti-messiah from the revived Ottoman Empire the fourth and final beast of Daniel 7.
2ᵑͩ 2:4 The word used here means ‘neged’ in Hebrew, opposed to, or opposite, contrary and against. He opposes, or is against the teachings of Messiah of Nazareth by proclaiming himself as the way to YAH by good religious works alone, while Scripture teaches faith and obedience and the need for blood atonement; the Muslims practice a works based redemption, as will this Islamic leader who will do likewise.
2ᵑͩ 2:4 Showing himself which means to prove. He is trying to prove to himself that he is YAH because he controls the destiny of people who follow him. This person, the anti-messiah is possessed by s.a.tan. So we have to remember that s.a.tan wanted to sit in the seat of YAH. So when the anti-messiah sits in the seat of YAH on the Temple Har, he sits in the Muslim shrine of Al Aqsa Mosque and thinks to himself that he is YAH. It is clear that this person is not saying to the world ‘I am YAH almighty’ because of the text in Daniel 11:38 which gives us balance. “But in their place he [the anti-messiah] shall esteem an Elohim of fortresses/brutality [Allah] and an Elohim which his fathers did not know he shall esteem with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things.” Daniel’s text shows us that the anti-messiah himself worships an Elohim of jihad. The anti-messiah is not proclaiming himself to be YAH , he is in essence saying ‘look at me. I am like YAH and I can control the destiny of all people just like YAH here on earth and at my command I can have someone killed or give someone life.’
2ᵑͩ 2:4 Actually the anti messiah speaking the words of Islam will enter the rebuilt Temple on Moriah as the Aramaic word Heykhala indicates. However part of the rebuilt temple compound, or Hekel in Hebrew will include the existing abomination of desolation the Al Aqsa Mosque situated in the southwest corner of the Temple Har today. Anti messiah will first cause the sacrifices to cease in the rebuilt Temple, then walk just a few yards to the mosque and attempt to deceive the world that he is The Almighty. Both these events could conceivably happen in one day. See key notes on Daniel 9:27.
2ᵑͩ 2:4 The text is saying that he sits in the sanctuary. The word for sanctuary can also be translated as a heathen shrine, as opposed to the actual Temple. This is where anti messiah is sitting, in the Al-Aqsa mosque “the abomination of desolation” upon, or within the site of the ancient Moriah Temple, YAH’s former and future house.
2ᵑͩ 2:4 A false and self deluded declaration as anti messiah himself worships Allah, the deity of brute violent force.
2ᵑͩ 2:5 Paul taught them from the book of Daniel.
2ᵑͩ 2:6 Michael the arch messenger.
2ᵑͩ 2:7 A reference to Mikhael, or Michael the arch messenger, who is said to be Israel’s warring messenger. He will be taken out of the way by YAH as prophesied in Daniel 12:1-2, when he is told to cease, or freeze in standing up for Israel, so that Jacob's Trouble, or the Great Tribulation, can commence. Once Michael is told to freeze, Islam’s attack against Jerusalem can begin. This does not refer to the Set-Apart Spirit, for clearly the Set-Apart Spirit is in the earth during that time, as seen by those who get saved and come to faith during that time.
2ᵑͩ 2:8 The anti messiah and ultimately the beast system he represents fully at the end of the Great Tribulation 3.5 years later.
2ᵑͩ 2:8 An interesting use of words. Messiah will use the light that He alone possesses to offset the claims of the anti messiah who claims to come bearing the false light of Islam. When Muhammad the Muslim prophet was around, he had on many occasions equaled himself with Allah by saying things that made him on par with Allah, meaning that on the day of mishpat he would have the right of committing people to heaven or hell. To prove that Muhammad was the ‘seal of the prophets’ the Muslims even claimed that he was created from light, he had no shadow and that his body would not rot in the grave.
2ᵑͩ 2:9 This unclean power is obviously not from YAH and neither is it YAH Himself.
2ᵑͩ 2:10 All unbelievers, specifically those trapped by the beast system represented by the anti messiah.
2ᵑͩ 2:11 Those who have bought into the beast, his mark and his religion, will all believe the lie as promoted by that false religion. That lie is recited 5 times daily by Muslims. “There is no Elohim but Allah and Mohammed his prophet.”
2ᵑͩ 2:12 The same end-time revived beast empire and its followers who seem to derive joy from shedding innocent blood.
2ᵑͩ 2:15 Aramaic word is porqadona, meaning Torah commandments.
2ᵑͩ 2:15 Greek word is paradosis. This is not a reference to the Oral Torah of the traditional rabbis, but to traditions of the first-century Nazarene Yisraelite community, such as service and worship procedures during feasts and Shabbat.
2ᵑͩ 3:6 The tradition of the ingathering of the exiles, not the tradition of the pre-tribulation rapture, for those who walk that way are called disorderly, as outlined throughout chapter two.
2ᵑͩ 3:14 A stern warning to those who can work but won’t and who through laziness wait for a pre-tribulation rapture in the hills, shunning all responsibility to family and the community of Israel.
