Concerning the coming and our gathering to Jesusâ€¦
1 Thessalonians 4:13
Ignorance, not knowing and therefore having no hope.
The mystery of lawlessnessâ€¦ why is it a mystery? Because those who are under darkness do not realize the deception, dilution and damage they know, trust and apply is sourced from the father of lies.
Why is lawlessness a mystery?
Who or what's holding back or keeping lawlessness and the lawless one back?
God is keeping it back!
Lawlessness is kept back by God, by design... but there is coming a specific day when it will be released to wreck havoc upon a world kept in the dark to its deception, delusion and demise.
Paul helps us with this in 2 Thessalonians. He says, "For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only God, who now keeps it back will do so until the Antichrist arises out of the midst of the sea (out of people, nations). And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume..." (2 Thessalonians 2:7-8)
Lawlessness has always been a work... but for those it is at work in, usually, have no clue how or why or when it's been at work in them.
Truth, the presence and personification of the word, comforts those who know, trust and act on the message they know.
No thief announces they are coming.
2 Thessalonians 2
Let no get you off courseâ€¦
No movement No ministry No message
Let no one deceive you.
Who is holding back the reveling of the Antichrist?
