2 Thessalonians (KJV) 2:3 By Any Means

2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJV)
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;
Satan, and those influenced by him, will employ any means to deceive the child of God.
  • They will pretend to be spiritual 
  • They will use persuasive speech 
  • They will produce books and letters claiming some authority
Though the devil will deceive in every area of spiritual truth, the subject addressed here has to do with the last days and Christ’s appearing in answer to God’s promise.
On this subject Albert Barnes writes, “…there is almost no subject on which caution is more proper, and on which men are more liable to delusion. The means then resorted to for deception appear from the previous verse to have been either an appeal to a pretended verbal message from the apostle, or a pretended letter from him. The means now, consist of a claim to uncommon wisdom in the interpretation of obscure prophecies of the Scriptures. The necessity for the caution here given has not ceased.”
