2 thess 2
I find it difficult to explain this verse to people during discussions about the rapture
2 Thessalonians 2
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. 3 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.
does this verse mean that only after the antichrist is revealed the rapture occurs.
does it take away the imminency of the rapture ?
I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord Philippians 3:8
