I would kind of agree, and kind of disagree, now concerning the "He" I would agree, but concerning what withholdeth, I would disagree.
Because the now ye know statement, seems to be an imminent thing he just mentioned.
But of course concerning other things on this subject, he did talk about it before hand.
(5) Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
He may have talked to them about the falling away ,at some point, but I do know for sure that he did talk about the second coming before chapter 2, he even talked about the second coming, in Thessalonians chapter 1, but here he affirms what has to take place before the second coming of Christ, he gives the answer, so that they know what has to happen first, and how events will unfold, the bible says to compare the bible with the bible, there is no guessing needed.
Paul did not mention this falling away happening first, just to fill in space.
And Paul did not say now ye know for no reason either, it was for them to now know how the events were to take place, that a falling away would take place first, then the Antichrist could be revealed, to me it is a no brainer.
Just follow what it says, rather than guess what it says.
