II Thessalonians 2:3-9

These verses introduce to us the signs and

In this particular chapter the Apostle Paul highlights
two events that are given to us on God's prophetic

to as "the little horn." And also as "the prince that
shall come." He is mentioned in the book of the
Revelation as "the rider on a white horse." And also
as "the beast out of the sea." John, the Beloved
Disciple, in his first letter ...
