I think that whatever the writer of 2 Thessalonians was predicting, it already happened.
Believing the lie would be catastrophic.
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John 3:19-21 KJV
...because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie...2 Thessalonians 2:10-13 KJV
This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 1 John 1: 5-6 KJV
