๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ‘‘ What Isย โ€œThe Love Of The Truth?โ€

โ€œEven him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be savedโ€ย (2 Thessalonians 2:9,10).

Romans 5:8 tells us,ย โ€œBut God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.โ€ย Theย โ€œlove of the truthโ€ย in todayโ€™s Scripture is the love of God manifested in the truth of God, and the truth of God is the Word of God (particularly the Gospel of Grace). The people in todayโ€™s Scripture rejected Godโ€™s love to them as He offered it to them in the Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ. That is, theyย โ€œbelieved not the truthโ€ย (verse 12), andย โ€œthe truthโ€ย is the Gospel mentioned in chapter 1.

Chapter 1 already said:ย โ€œ[7] And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, [8] In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:….โ€ย Those individuals consumed in the fiery wrath at Christโ€™s Second Coming, God had a controversy with them. They didย notย have an intimate relationship with Him. Why did they lack that personal bond with Him? Theyย โ€œobey[ed] not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.โ€ย Our Gospel is that we are saved by grace through faith in Christ without works (Ephesians 2:8,9). These peopleย refusedย to come Godโ€™s way, so they willย notย be saved from Godโ€™s judgment (short-term, the Antichristโ€™s deception [todayโ€™s Scripture]; ultimately, hell and the lake of fire).

Returning to chapter 2, we see their punishment for their receiving not the love of the truth, that they might be saved:ย โ€œ[11] And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: [12] That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.โ€ย They rejected Godโ€™s love manifested in the truth, so He has given them over to the lie that the Antichrist is the true Christ. source
