Who Will You Worship?

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4


Ponder This

Jesus said, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father” (John 14:9). The Antichrist can say the same thing. He is of his father, the devil. Just as Jesus Christ was God in human flesh, the Antichrist will be the devil in human flesh and he will be able to say, “He who has seen me has seen my father.”

Satan desires worship, and he will receive that worship through the Antichrist. In 2 Thessalonians 2:4, the Apostle Paul tells us that the Antichrist will sit in the temple considering Himself as God. The devil has always wanted to be worshipped, and all people were made to worship. The question for us is who and what will we worship?

  • What are some markers that tell us what people worship in their lives?
  • Though you may never say you worship anything other than God, what in your life would you have the hardest time letting go of if God asked you to? What might this indicate?
