The Second letter to the Thessalonians was written very soon after the first, as the reaction to the fact that some of those in Thessalonica had been upset by his first letter to them because they thought that the "Day of the Lord" was happening at that time. This was fueled in part by the fact that they believed that the persecution they were suffering was one of the signs of the Tribulation and that they had missed the return of Jesus. That being the case, they reasoned, it was useless to carry on His work. In response, Paul wrote this letter explaining that the Day of the Lord had not yet taken place, and went on to explain that before it could happen, the believers must be "gathered together to Him," and that the Antichrist would be unmasked. He exhorted them to continue to pray and persevere in their good works.
