Mystery of the Iniquity
2 Thessalonians 2
King James Version (KJV)
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
Gather in body, spirit, soul, mind, and with friends, together unto HIM!
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
Do not let your mind be troubled. Do not let your spirit be interrupted by any other than the Holy Spirit! Let the Word be in your hear, soul, spirit and mind. For The Day is at hand….
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Let no man, or angel deceive you by any means. NOR any other doctrine! Because they WILL try.
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
The one who calleth himself god is coming to the temple and will be coming to be worshipped as god. Don’t be fooled.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
Remember that Jesus Christ, Himself told us this!
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
The Holy Spirit has withheld these things until the time…the time is nigh.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
The mystery of the iniquity is at work in this world. Everything happens with purpose, and GOD’s Will.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
The WICKEDNESS is Satan. And JESUS CHRIST is HIS coming will destroy that wickedness with the SPIRIT of HIS MOUTH, and with the BRIGHTNESS of HIS coming. And the FAKE light of Satan will be gone forever and ever, eternally. POWERFUL!
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
And let it be known that even those who come after Satan, and his works, and his signs and lying wonders will perish.
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
With all the unrighteousness of the deceived who had the chance, those who had the chance to love the TRUTH, and the Salvation that they might be Saved, did not. Mercy be upon their souls.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
But, for this GOD will cause strong delusion upon their face, and will, that they should believe a lie. That they should not only believe a lie but also believe Satan is god, this is the biggest lie of all. This doctrine will cost billions of lives upon this earth.
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Billions will not believe the TRUTH that is GOD. But, they will take pleasure in lies and unrighteous behavior.
13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
We are to deeply, with all our being to give thanks to GOD, for our beloved, JESUS CHRIST, and GOD ALMIGHTY, was our Creator, from the BEGINNING to and there will be no END. GOD is TRUTH. GOD is SALVATION. GOD IS LOVE.
14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Word, calling you, to the Lord, Jesus Christ, our Glory, our Gospel.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
So, STANDFAST! HOLD the doctrines of the Gospel that you have been taught by the Word.
16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
GOD loves each and every one of us through grace, love, and hope.
17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
Comfort your hearts through this wisdom.
So, we have a certain iniquity which has been here for thousands of years! It’s a truth some kept hidden, yet when revealed, people thought it a lie. Yes, we are told there will be some who don’t believe, naysayers who spread lies and care nothing of the truth. And it seems lately, the majority of those rule over the believers. Maybe, this is why Jesus Christ told us…..hold onto you coat tails folks….it’s going to be a bumpy ride. With seven billion on the planet, the road seems sooooooo tiny which would hold the ones who believe in GOD. This to was foretold. So, for all those out there…those naysayers….the odds of all these prophecies becoming reality are ASTRONOMICAL…..how do you explain this? My answer is….GOD and science go hand in hand, it’s man who gets in between!
