The novice Christians at Thessalonica believed that Jesus’ return was imminent and that they would live to see it. However, Paul wrote to them, “let no one deceive you, for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition.” There has always been a lot of speculation and surmising about who this man of sin might be. As for me, I am not given to such cogitations. As Mark Twain once said, “It is not those scriptures we cannot understand that should concern us, but those we do understand.” What I do understand is that the end is preceded by a falling away, a radical decline in faith. This waning of faith surrounds us and as a boulder rolling down the hill, it rapidly gains momentum and grows to an avalanche. It is not a time to be astonished; it is a time to be steadfast. Lord, come quickly. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
