2 Thessalonians: chapter 2:1-12 (Part 2.3)

Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers,
not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come.
Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 
He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

Isn't that a good thing to know? There are people that pick a random date and say Jesus is coming, but he never does, so don't listen to people who say that.

If anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'There he is!' do not believe it. No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. (Mathew 24:13;36)

So do not get excited about Jesus coming back, when that verse in Mathew said "the son" it was talking about Jesus, so anyone who says "I know the day!" They are putting themselves about Jesus.

Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things?
And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time.
For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.
And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders,

Fake miracle? So the bible is saying that close to the end Satan will be able to make fake miracles? That does sound a little crazy, but the truth is Satan will soon be able to give his follows the power to heal people and when he does, you need to know what is true and what isn't.

and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie
and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

It's sad to think about how people will be won over to Satan's side by false signs. That's why every christian should be spreading the gospel and when the false prophets rise up, you don't want to be caught in there schemes.
