To you who are troubled, rest with us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven, with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those that know not God, and obey not the gospel… (2 Thessalonians 1:7f) What a passage! Incredible prophecy! Stirring warning! Comforting promise! Yet, did you know that this prophecy is one of the most problematic passages in the entire New Testament? Here’s why: If Paul was writing to living Christians… and he was, And if those Christians were being persecuted… and they were, And if Paul promised those living Christians relief from that persecution… and he did, And if Paul promised those living Christians relief from that persecution, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven… and he did, Then, if Jesus did not come in the lifetime of those living Christians and give them relief from that persecution, as promised by Paul, then, Paul lied to them, and gave them false hope!! His prediction failed, and he is a false prophet!! That is the problem of the text, and it is unavoidable.
