 The apostle now turns to explain the connection of Satan, as also of God's retribution, with the lawless one. (On 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 by W. Kelly)
 The Apostle Peter (Acts 2) set out the Messiah, "a man demonstrated of God to you by deeds of power and wonders and signs, which God wrought by him in your midst, even as ye yourselves know." How amazingly solemn that here we have the Anti-Messiah described beforehand in language so similar! (On 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 by W. Kelly)
 Satan acts-God having loosed his bridle-with a power (a lying power indeed, but) which gives the same testimony before men as that which the works of Christ did to the Saviour; and also with all the skill that iniquity possesses to deceive. It is in the wicked, the lawless one, that Satan works these things. (2 Thessalonians 2 by J.N. Darby)
