The Day of the Lord is not to be desired, for any
one, and especially not a Christian, because it is a
day in which God will make war on Satan, and his
It should be remembered that this epic “Day of the Lord”, will only commence after Christians are removed from this planet and Satan begins to enact his final all-out assault upon the nation of Israel.
II Thessalonians 2 : 3 says: 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".
This "falling away" is the condition of the last days church era, a state which will lead to an apostate body calling itself the christian church, but is in reality the culmination of the Laodicean church, which has conformed itself to the world religion of another Christ.
This apostate church is the epitome of the one mentioned in I Timothy 4; where we are told that in the latter times this church will have departed from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and the doctrines of devils.
Also in II Timothy 4:3, we are informed that this last days church will not welcome sound doctrine; but shall heap to themselves teachers which shall in fact turn from the Truth of the Bible, and conform its teachings into demonic fable, or myth.
It is this subtle distorting of the true gospel of the one and only Jesus Christ, that the Son of Perdition will utilize to transform the last days church into a vehicle for his ascendancy to be Christ’s replacement.
The Mystery of Luciferic conspiracy to attain the throne of Christ has been subtly operating under a mask since the days of Jesus Christ’s resurrection. It is a hidden agenda for the most part, except to those Christians which stay informed via the teaching of the Holy Spirit.
II Thessalonians 2 : 7 tells us; For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only He who now letteth will let, until He be taken out of the way.
This great "Mystery" has been at work seeking to undermine the cause of the True Christ, by slyly infiltrating the bride of Christ ( the Church ) and transforming it into his own institution; a revelation which John was shown a foreglimpse of in Revelation chapter 17.
That church of the Son of Satan, or the cosmic Christ, has its name stamped on her forehead, "Mystery, Babylon".
In Revelation 17:7, John was astounded by the vile transformation that the church had undergone, as it had become a vehicle of adoration of the opposite subject; not the Son of God; but rather, the "Son of Satan, or “Son of Perdition".
II Thessalonians 2:9 informs the brethren of Christ that this individual will be assisted by the working of Satan himself, with all power and signs, and lying wonders.
Lets review his capabilities in Revelation 13 : 14;
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which He had power to do in the sight of the Beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an Image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
The Son of Perdition will have deceived the entire world by performing grand miracles, but this capability is availed to him only while he is in the vision path of the Beast. Satan actually performs the supernatural wonders displayed before the world.
Satan could have already accomplished his master deceptive scheme except for one thing, and it continues to this day to be his one great hindrance.
That hindering instrument is Christians. Yes, you and I are the instruments of obstacle to Satan’s old plan to rule this world as God. We, are the evidence that he is not the true Lord, and we continually are an impedance to his lofty ambitions.
One day though, Christians, or the true bride of Christ will be caught away suddenly, without any warning, and the Day of the Lord will commence. Revelation 3:10 carries the hopeful promise to the faithful church; that it will be kept from the hour, or day of Temptation, which is coming upon all the world, as it indicates; to try them which remain in the world.
I Thessalonians 5 : 9 expresses it like this: For God hath not appointed Us to Wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.
The false Christ will then explain the strange, sudden disappearance of many peoples by characterizing the vanished as being the incorrigible obstacles to the Love and Harmony of the charismatic Christ that has come to save the world. He will allay their fears, and instill hope and human idealism through perverse religious histrionics and miracles.
I should point out, that the Holy Spirit, being a portion of the triune God, is omni-present, capable of being present in all places at the same instant, so then, the Holy Spirit will be present on the earth in 'the post rapture era, but will be working in accord with the divine plan of God for national Israel, primarily.
So, it is we, the Christians that presently prevents Satan from solidifying his SEED upon a world throne, but after our sudden removal, God will permit the Antichrist to perpetrate the "Great Delusion"!
What is that Great Delusion?
II Thessalonians 2:11 states thusly; And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a "LIE":
A quick look at Titus 1:2 informs us that God cannot lie so this “Lie”, spoken of in II Thessalonians is a lie promoted by the Father of all Lies, "Satan"! ( John 8 : 44 )
No doubt you have heard the phrase, "the Mother of all Battles", which Saddam Hussein often refers to; but there is also a "Father of all Lies", and he will have a dilly ready for all those left behind after the rapture.
What could that Lie be, which in effect, would cause all the rival nations, and rival religions, to unite into a single world confederation? What extraordinary event could result in an environment that would cause the diverse peoples of the world to submit to the great dynamic leader, and pledge their loyalty to him, and finally accepting his mark, his image, or number; and worship him as a God.
I Corinthians 8 : 5 states; For though there be that are called Gods, whether in Heaven or in Earth, ( as there be Gods many, and Lords many, ); But to us there is but one God;
There are many hosts of the Angelic realm, which work to coordinate the Satanic cosmic conspiracy. They have historically accepted the worship of mankind. Any of the Godly heavenly angels however, have steadfastly refused the worship of men throughout history.
I Corinthians 6:2-3 indicates that the saints shall judge the angels, as well as the world.
Perhaps the reigning saints of the Millennial era will judge the evil angels for their complicity in the conspiracy of Satan.
Today the angels work as the ministering spirits of God or, if they are the fallen angels who rebelled with old Lucifer, which amounted to one-third of all the host that God created in the Angelic realm, then they work in complicity with the Satanic coup-d-etat.
Lucifers fall came as a result of his pride, and not being willing to submit himself to that lowly man that would become known as the "Son of Man".
Hebrews 2:7 says that Jesus was made a little lower than the angels, and suffered death, so that fallen man could have a just grace, and thereby, also be freed from the subjection of enslavement to the Chief of Fallen Angels.
