PRE-Lesson 6 Demo (5th Pass)
Head : How should I think differently about God/myself/etc. because of what I’ve just phrased? God is in control, not the sin that fills the world; God is guiding the world in his time and for his purposes. Jesus will destroy the man of lawlessness simply by his words and his glory. What doctrines are taught in this passage? Eschatology What specific contribution to those doctrines does this passage make? The timing of Jesus' return (its being restrained until the right time), the result of his return for the man of lawlessness. What other Scriptures add to the truths taught in this passage? Many other Scriptures describe the timing of Jesus' return, such as 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3, which is important because it is in the twin epistle to this one. There Paul says that Jesus' return will be sudden and unexpected. Verse 52 of 1 Corinthians 15 describes the time as "at the last trumpet." Heart: How should I feel differently about God/myself/etc. because of what I’ve just phrased? I should feel secure, safe in God's hands (see 2 Thess 1:5, 11-12). What emotions are expressed in this passage? Paul is trying to encourage the church ("and you know " - v. 6). What emotions does this passage exhort me to feel? None specifically. Hands: How should I act differently because of what I’ve just phrased? Paul means this truth to keep the Thessalonians from being " quickly shaken in mind or alarmed... to the effect that the day of the Lord has come" ( 2 Thess 2:2 ). So I should "hold firm" to Scriptural teaching ( 2 Thess 2:15 ). I should also share the gospel with those who will be deceived and destroyed (2 Thess 2:9-12). What motivations does this passage give for acting differently? I need to know verses that teach what God has done to save me, so that I have a firm rock to stand on, not worried about my eternal destiny, if I am going to hold tightly to a correct eschatology. What sins do I need to repent of and put off? What good works do I need to put on? Unbelief; fear of the future; lack of fear of Jesus' power and glory
Summary of 5th Pass Notes
SUMMARY: Head: I need to grow in my understanding of eschatology. Study other passages of Scripture on this topic so that I can accurately understand what Scripture teaches about this. I need to remember the truth that although sin fills the world so that politics, my health, my relationships, are not what they should be, yet God is controlling every event for his good purposes. Heart: I should meditate upon these passages to fill my heart with security with what I " know " (v. 6). All of history is in God's skilful hands, and is being guided toward his perfect purposes, which will culminate in my glorification (Rom 8:28-30). I need to not only know about Jesus' appearing in my mind but love his appearing in my heart (2 Tim 4:8). Meditate on his great glory and power (v. 8), which will fill me with awe and joy when he comes (v. 10). Hands: I need to "hold firm" to the Scriptural teaching that I study and understand (2 Thess 2:15). I need to pursue a deeper understanding of it. I need to share the gospel with my unsaved family and friends, remembering their certain doom from verses 9-12. I need to confess my unbelief of God's power and sovereignty, my fear of the future, and my lack of awe at Jesus' great power and glory.
