Don't Be Misled

1 Thessalonians 2:1 by Dr. Michael Miller
Don’t Be Misled
Living To Please God — Part 9
1 Thessalonians 2:1-17
 
Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way.  2 Thes. 2:3 NIV
  
1.  Beware ___________________________________________________________________
Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you,
brothers and sisters, 2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from 
us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord 
has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way.  2 Thes. 2:1-3a NIV
 
 2.  Beware ___________________________________________________________________
That day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the
man doomed to destruction. 4 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. 5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 
And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 
7 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.   2 Thes. 2:3b-7 NIV
  
3.  Beware ___________________________________________________________________
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.   2 Thes. 2:8 NIV
 
 * Stay focused _________________________________________
He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus
Christ.  2 Thes. 2:14 NIV
  
* Stay alert _____________________________________________
So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you,
whether by word of mouth or by letter.  2 Thes. 2:15 NIV
  
* Stay prepared _________________________________________
May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us 
eternal encouragement and good hope.  2 Thes. 2:16 NIV
 
 * Stay encouraged _______________________________________
May our Lord…encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. 
2 Thes. 2:17 NIV
