2 Thessalonians 2:9 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.
So now we know that the Anti-Christ is lawless. So, what does the modern Church do, but pronounce that the Law is done away with. Which is not in accordance with scripture, but is the first indication that the Anti-Christ is at the helm of modern Christianity, and has been for almost 1800 years.
He first made His appearance when the Roman Church caved in to the Emperor of Rome and compromised with Pagans. Emperor Constantine being the chief cause, and agent of Satan.
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)
The first thing that was attacked was The Sabbath that YHWH God had ordained since the Garden of Eden and the completion of creation.
Exodus 20:11 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.
We know that the holy Sabbath that YHWH God ordained was at this point changed to Sunday, the day of the Pagan Sun god. And every believer, both Christian and Jew were ordered to abandon God’s Sabbath, and to honor instead the Sabbath of Pagan’s. Thus, The Father’s 7th day Sabbath was changed by the authority of the Roman Catholic Church. And this was done under the treat of death, those who continued to keep the 7th day Sabbath as holy were executed. And many died because of it.
The Roman Church had given themselves over to Satan at this point. And then came a flood of lies and deception on the heels of this travesty. And still even today we see the followers of the Anti-Christ twisting Scripture so as to uphold this unholy doctrine rather than walking in truth.
When we send someone to seminary, they come out spouting the doctrine of the Anti-Christ without exception. The net result is that believers all over the world have been taught to believe these professional liars. So, the deception persists, even among the Elite.
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)
One generation of Ministers and missionaries have passed down lies and deception for generations. One generation to another for 18 Centuries we have witnessed this.
Mark 13:21 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘Look, He is there!’ do not believe it.
22 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
23 But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand.
It’s not like we weren’t warned by Yahshua Christ Himself, and His disciples. But we have chosen to ignore the warnings, refusing to audit our doctrine we cling to the lies and continue to behave and worship like lawless Pagan’s.
We even Honor Pagan deities outright, like Easter / Ishtar the Pagan goddess of fertility, and we keep Lent which is nothing but the worship of Tammuz. Christmas or Saturnalia also is a purely Pagan rite, and Santa is an anagram for Satan. And for thousands of years the practice of putting gifts under a tree has been a telltale part of Pagan practice.
Jeremiah 10:2 “Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the Gentiles are dismayed at them.
3 For the customs of the peoples are futile; For one cuts a tree from the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.
4 They decorate it with silver and gold; they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it will not topple.
Even the Prophet Jeremiah warns us against such practices. Clearly, we have no excuse before YHWH God, for our sinful behavior. And even still there are those among us who are practicing these things, violating God’s Law, and walking in unrighteousness, because they believe that these things mean nothing.
It is because I serve Yahshua Christ, I too issue this warning! Those who persist in breaking YHWH God’s Law will not be able to justify themselves before their Judge. For He judges according to the same Commandments He kept as an example to us.
He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked. (1st John 2:6)
1st Peter 4:5 They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
6 For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
So once again I beg of you, to open Your Bible and study God’s Word. Nowhere is there a change in God’s ordained Sabbath. Nowhere are we commanded to celebrate Pagan holidays, but we are commanded to Keep His 7 Feast days.
Passover, Unleavened Bread, First fruits, Pentecost, Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles, these are his feast!
2nd Corinthians 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?
15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?
16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”
17 Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.”
18 “I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
Here is the promise of YHWH God to all of us, if that’s not good enough for us, then we have no choice but to say goodbye to the life He affords us in the Spirit. For no man will enter the Kingdom of Elohim who has not kept the Commandments of God.
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.
But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. (Revelation 22:14-15)
Let’s for just a moment revisit today’s scripture:
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)
Practicing the lie is our death knell!
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Shalom my friends,
