Which Comes First? Christ or Antichrist?

II Thessalonians 2:

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Paul’s Order of Events by Holy Spirit Inspiration

1. A falling away from the true gospel.

2. Antichrist, the Man of Sin, revealed.

3. Jesus Christ’s Second Coming for His saints.
