Is There a Second Chance to Be Saved After the "That Wicked" is Revealed?

(Note: The original title of this post was: "Tribulation Martyrs: A Second Chance After the Rapture?"  I re-titled it because I commented on 2 Thess. Chapter 2 and focused on when the rejecters will believe the lie because the text tells us when!)

Original post:

There is nothing in Scripture that even suggests that a certain group cannot be saved after the Rapture. Some will argue for 2 Thessalonians 2:6-11, but it never says when the dividing point is, when the rejecters are too far gone, when "they will believe the lie."

My reply:

Scripture does say a certain kind of person will definitely be deceived when "that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming."

We know that wicked is Antichrist because scripture goes on to say, "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders."

Antichrist will work, "with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish." Why will these perish and be deceived by Antichrist? ""because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved."

For this very reason (of not loving the truth so that they might be saved) "God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie."

What exactly is the result of believing this lie that God himself will delude people who have refused to be saved into believing?

"That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

This is a sober warning to anyone who refused to accept the truth of the gospel and refused to love it (because they had pleasure in unrighteousness) and so be saved.

By the time "that Wicked is revealed" anyone who has heard the gospel but rejected the love of the truth (and the Truth) because they loved their unrighteousness, will be damned. They will not have Holy Ghost conviction, but rather God himself will send them strong delusion so they would believe a lie in which the end result is that they will be damned for believing it. See 2 Thess. 2:1-12

There will not be revival for those who have rejected the Lord Jesus Christ by the time "that Wicked" is revealed. There will be judgment in the form of a God-sent strong delusion.

Today is the day of salvation.
