"Explaining the context of 2 Thessalonians 2"

  The context of 2 Thess 2:2 is that someone had sent out a letter
saying the rapture had already happened, and that the Tribulation had
begun. While the words  “falling away” in verse 3 is true, the Greek
word translated “falling away” means “departure.”  So the context
means both a falling away from the faith AND a departure in the
Rapture before the AntiChrist can be revealed.  Verses 7&8 make this
point clearer; since we will leave once the Holy Spirit is no longer
restraining evil.

2 Thess 2  KJV
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus
Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by
spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of
Christ is at hand.

3Let 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;

4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or
that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
shewing himself that he is God.

5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now
letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume
with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of
his coming:
