For the love of Truth!

2nd Thessalonians 2:5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 
6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 
7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 
9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 
12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The scriptures are full of warnings and this one is dire. For Paul see’s clearly what will happen in the future. He knows that the enemy of Christ Yehoshua is already at work undoing what the Messiah has done, and is reversing many of His teachings, especially with regard to God’s Law.

Do you not remember that when I was still with you, I told you these things? 
And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 
For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
 (Vs 5-7)

The Anti-Christ will be revealed in time, and I believe that will come when He comes into His power, and that time is near.

The Mystery of Lawlessness is all around us. but it seems to prevail mostly among those who have not fully studied the front of the Bible. And lawlessness will inhibit the salvation of millions, because they have made a practice of breaking God’s commandments. The Sabbath being the principal indicator of the truth of this statement.

Exodus 20:8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 
9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 
10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 
11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

The fourth Commandment Speaks for itself. But because we don’t adhere to the Law, we have no way of knowing what a slap to the face of YHVH God our disobedience is.

God does not change. (Malachi 3:6) So where did this Sabbath change come from?

Answer: The Roman Catholic Church. 321 AD. They changed it so as to attract more Pagans into the Church. Perhaps because the Pagan Sabbath is on Sunday, Because they worshipped the Sun.

So, the key to knowing who the followers of the Anti-Christ are, is to look at those who follow and teach Roman Catholic Doctrine, like Sunday Sabbath. For surely God never ever Changed His Sabbath day. God does not change!

And there are many other such things that are taught in traditional Churches that are not ordained of God. Such as Christmas, Easter, and Lent.

Christ would have never taught anything outside of God’s Word. But Traditional Christian Churches seem to have forgotten that He is the living Word of God, and YHVH’s one and only Son.

 For I give you good doctrine: Do not forsake my law. (Proverbs 4:2)

So, what will happen to those who are following this doctrine and are unwilling to depart from it?

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. (Vs 8)

When Yehoshua comes, the influence of this Anti-Christ will be destroyed along with His house of lies. The truth will prevail at Christ’s return.

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (Vs 9, 10)

Satan will fail in His efforts to sidetrack the whole assembly of believers. But those who have believed the lie will fail to make the grade also, they will follow Satan and His minions into the pit.

And the one thing that trips us up is the very thing that led us astray to begin with. The love of the truth, these folks never received it, nor did they seek it.

And I can understand that, from the time I was a child, I was deceived, and when I found out that I was being lied to late in life, I got angry. But now I know that the ones who lied to me, quite likely didn’t know themselves the truth.

So where did my truth come from? How was it revealed to me?

I was witnessing to people every day, using God’s Commandments to convict them of their sin. And one day Christ spoke to me via His Spirit. He said, “You’re using my commandments to bring people to me?” I said, “Yes lord!” He said, “why don’t you keep them yourself? Ouch, that hurt! I thought I was keeping them.

So I asked, what have I done, Lord? He said, “It’s what you haven’t done. You’re not keeping my Sabbath!” And then it occurred to me, the 4th Commandment. The one we overlook, turns to be the one He cared enough about to stop me in my tracks, and rebuke me for my disobedience.

Yes, it hurt me, but made me glad at the same time. It was then that I asked Him to be my teacher, because I could not find a man who was able to teach me according to the truth of God’s Word.

He was faithful to teach me what I needed to know. For many a night afterwards, I dreamt scripture all night long, and then he told me to go back to the front of my Bible and study the book of Deuteronomy. That changed everything!

So that being said, I recommend that You do the same, ask Yehoshua for the truth.

And for this reason, God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (Vs 11, 12)

If we are deceived, it is because we were too lazy or disinterested to open the scriptures and seek out the truth for our own good. So because we do not have it in us to seek out the truth, YHVH God allows us to continue in our deception, and to destroy us at judgment.

I pray that those who have it in themselves to seek the truth, will do so now.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)

Shalom my friends,

  1. Thank you The Holy Spirit led me to the truth too. All you Dave to do is ask for the truth sand He will revil it. Then if you do what his word says you will be in peace.

  2. Yes they need to look for truth. But we also need to pray that the scales are removed from thier eyes. They have been blinded by many things. Such were we until He moved on us.
