THE NUMBER ONE SIGN WE ARE AT THE VERY END OF THE END TIMES!

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition…” 2 Thessalonians 2:30NOVEMBER 26, 2018 2:02 PM by Lyn Leahz.

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition…” 2 Thessalonians 2:30NOVEMBER 26, 2018 2:02 PM by Lyn Leahz

What is the most obvious sign that, not only is the Antichrist about to be revealed, but that we are standing on the precipice of the start of the tribulation?  And how can we know for sure that this particular sign does indeed mean we are that close?

To answer this question, let’s take a look at 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3:

Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,

Verse three specifically tells us “that” Day will NOT come UNLESS the falling away comes first.  Are we seeing the falling away?  I believe so. 

The church has been given over to an ear tickling message and their leaders who preach it.  2 Timothy 4:3-5 tells us, For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”  (As a side note, I would also like to add, for those of you who feel warning people is ungodly or unbiblical; verse 5 commands us to be watchful in ALL things and DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST, which is warning people and telling them the truth about Jesus Christ!)

We are seeing a deluge of false teachers, preachers, and people who have given themselves over to their ear tickling messages.

GotQuestions.Org had one of the best, biblical articles on the matter: 

The Bible indicates that there will be a great apostasy during the end times. The “great apostasy” is mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. The KJV calls it the “falling away,” while the NIV and ESV call it “the rebellion.” And that’s what an apostasy is: a rebellion, an abandonment of the truth. The end times will include a wholesale rejection of God’s revelation, a further “falling away” of an already fallen world.

The occasion of Paul’s writing to the Thessalonians was to correct some of the errors concerning the end times that the believers had heard from false teachers. Among the falsehoods was that “the day of the Lord has already come” (2 Thessalonians 2:2). The Christians in Thessalonica were afraid that Jesus had already come, they had missed the rapture, and they were now in the tribulation. Paul had already explained the rapture to them in his first letter (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17). Paul writes his second letter to assure them that, contrary to what they had heard, and despite the persecution they were enduring, the “day of Christ” had not yet come.

We are seeing a deluge of false teachers, preachers, and people who have given themselves over to their ear tickling messages. 

In 2 Thessalonians 2:3, Paul makes it clear that the day of the Lord, a time of worldwide judgment (Isaiah 13:6Obadiah 1:15), will not transpire until two things happen. First, the falling away, or great apostasy, must occur. Second, the “man of lawlessness” must be revealed, he who is called the “son of perdition,” also known as the Antichrist. Once this person makes himself known, the end times will indeed have come. Numerous speculations about the identity of the man of sin, beginning in the first century, have included Caligula, Caius Caesar, Mohammed, Napoleon, and any number of Roman popes. None of them were the Anti-christ.

The man of lawlessness, according to 2 Thessalonians 2:4, is the one who “will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.” Clearly, this has not yet happened; no one since Paul’s time has set himself up as God in the Jewish temple. Two thousand years have passed since the epistle was written, and the “day of the Lord” has not yet come. Paul assures us that it will not come until the falling away comes first.

The Greek word translated “rebellion” or “falling away” in verse 3 is apostasia, from which we get the English word apostasy. It refers to a general defection from the true God, the Bible, and the Christian faith. Every age has its defectors, but the falling away at the end times will be complete and worldwide. The whole planet will be in rebellion against God and His Christ. Every coup requires a leader, and into this global apostasy will step the Antichrist. We believe this takes place after the church has been raptured from the earth.

Please pay close attention to the next paragraph here:

Jesus warned the disciples concerning the final days in Matthew 24:10–12: “At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.” These are the characteristics of the great apostasy of the end times.

Here are important bullet points from the above verse about the characteristics of the great apostasy of the end times:

-Many will turn away from the faith (Would you say that many people have turned away from the truth of God’s Word? Following a watered down, politically correct, corrupt version, which is a lie, instead?)

-Many will betray and hate each other (Have you noticed both in the news, and looking around in your own life at others, that more and more people seem to be betraying one another for their own personal gain or selfish reasons? And, not only are betraying one another, but filled with hatred, bitterness and unforgiveness as well?)

-Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people (How many self-proclaimed prophets have you seen on the internet who are hearing from God with dates, time frames, warnings, messages and more?  Many have similar messages, and many are also different. Have what these people proclaimed come to pass?  Is what their proclaiming something that is also recorded in the Bible almost word for word?  Aren’t many people losing hope and faith as a result of false prophecies that never come to pass?)

-An increase of wickedness (Just turn on the news or look at the news on the internet.  It’s pretty obvious wickedness is on the rise every day. Sexual immorality, murder and abortion, child abuse, hatred, hate crimes, witchcraft, violence, no conscience, love of money, children killing their own parents, parents killing their own children, etc. The list could go on and on.)

-As a result of an increase of wickedness, the love of MOST will grow cold (The world has moved so far away from the true Biblical definition of love it’s not funny.  We live in a narcissistic self-absorbed society. People are in a hurry and do not have time to care about other people.  As the old saying goes, “It’s a dog eat dog world,” which means “ruthless and competitive.”)

I will leave the answer to the question up to you.  Open your eyes and look around at everything going on in the world, particularly the church (and I don’t mean a building). Given all that you see, do you feel the falling away spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 has taken place? And, if so, according to that same verse, doesn’t it mean the “man of sin, son of perdition (Antichrist), is next on the agenda and at hand?

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, I strongly urge you today to consider. Here is a plan of salvation from AllAboutGod.Com

Plan of Salvation: Rebirth is the Answer to Life’s Most Important Question
Plan of Salvation — We think life’s most important question is “Are you going to heaven when you die?” It is not a question of how good you are, whether you go to church, or how much money you give to charity. God says, in order to go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3).

Plan of Salvation: How can we be Born Again?
The plan of salvation is right in the Bible. God gives us His clear plan for being “born again.” 

First, we must acknowledge God as the Creator of everything, and accept our humble position in God’s creation. “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” (Revelation 4:11). 

Next, we must realize that we are sinners. “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). 

Because we are sinners, we are condemned to death. “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God. 

But God loved each of us so much that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear our sin and die in our place. “God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Although we cannot understand how, God said our sins were laid upon Jesus and He died in our place. Jesus became our substitute. 

In the Bible, a jailer asked his prisoners, Paul and Silas: “’Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ So they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.’” (Acts 16:30-31). 

It’s very clear in the Bible, believe in Jesus as the one who bore your sins, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected. It’s Christ’s blood and resurrection that assures us of everlasting life when we call on Him as our Lord and Savior. “For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13). “Whosoever” includes each and every one of us. 

Therefore, if you understand that you are a sinner, and you believe that Jesus Christ came as the one and only Redeemer of sin, then you understand the plan of salvation. The question is – are you ready to implement the plan, by receiving God’s gift of His Son, Jesus Christ? If so, believe in Christ, repent of your sins, and commit the rest of your life to Him as Lord:

“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that Your Son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

“Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 2:38)

If you decided to receive Jesus today, welcome to God’s family. Now, as a way to grow closer to Him, the Bible tells us to follow up on our commitment.

  • Get baptized as commanded by Christ.
  • Tell someone else about your new faith in Christ.
  • Spend time with God each day. It does not have to be a long period of time. Just develop the daily habit of praying to Him and reading His Word. Ask God to increase your faith and your understanding of the Bible.
  • Seek fellowship with other followers of Jesus. Develop a group of believing friends to answer your questions and support you.
  • Find a local church where you can worship God. (Added by Lyn Leahz: make sure you find a good, Bible believing, truth-telling church that preaches the convicting message of truth, not the ear-tickling watered down false love message)

Prayers for Protection

Prior to going to sleep, this memorised prayer will guard you when you are susceptible to spiritual attack:

“Under the authority of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Ghost, I BIND the demonic, any and all familiar or unfamiliar spirits and cast them out. I bind, loose and cast them out of our bedroom, away from our bodies and our minds, and out of our entire home. I cast out any and all demonic spirits in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.”

When dealing with demonic attacks (unwanted thoughts or metal images), one may quickly utter:

“I rebuke you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ”.

Another useful prayer is the Blood of Jesus prayer, also recommended at bed time:

“Heavenly Father,
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I have full faith and belief that the Blood of Jesus will  protect and defend me (or….) against Satan and all his evil spirits or demons and all people, places or things that they are using. I declare that, whether familiar or unfamiliar, they have no power in your presence! In the name of and under the authority of Jesus Christ, Yeshua, I plead the Blood of Jesus on …….. (fill in the blank)…. I now Plead the Blood of Jesus against ……………. Or for…………..

Thank you Father. For it is not by my power, but the power of “The Blood” and the Holy Ghost!
Thank you Jesus. Thank-you Yeshua!

If I suspect that I am under spiritual attack, I pray, frequently using the phrase, “through the shed blood of Jesus.” This reminds the powers and principalities that, by killing the Christ, that they actually opened the doors of redemption for the entire world. This must really hurt the demonic realm – it was their stupidity that enacted God’s plan! Also, to really irk them, I then thank Jesus for His love and mercy.

Survival Resources for War and Disaster

With the current state of world affairs and Earth changes, I have included a range of useful files to assist your preparations. A few useful hints for your preparation may include:

  • Stockpile food, water and essential medications for at least three months consumption. Keep a supply or “bug out bag” ready to go in the back of your car.
  • Ensure you have spare fuel and oil – refill your vehicle’s petrol tank when the tank is half-full.
  • Keep up to date with your medical and dental checks – when a catastrophe happens, you and your family may not be able to access decent health care for months or even years.
  • Have a back-up plan to meet family members, particularly if the main roads are blocked, damaged or flooded.
  • Maintain a high level of physical fitness – it may save your life!
  • Maintain a high level of spiritual fitness – it may save your soul (through the grace of God)!
  • Trial some of the long life food that you have in your stockpile – if you don’t like it now, it will be worse when you don’t have a choice!
  • Change your diet and see how you can cope without chocolate, ice-cream, milk, butter or anything else you think is essential.
  • Become more self-reliant – the more you can do for your family and yourself, the less dependent you are on others. Be the master of your own destiny!

More Spiritual Warfare Resources in an Age of Wickedness

In the 80’s and 90’s I did not believe that the end times were close – now it seems that everything is aligning for major totalitarian change. Traditional morality and Christian values are despised – wickedness is endorsed and protected. The rise of technology allows easy monitoring of beliefs and movements, and soon, financial transactions. It is easy to see that dissidents who disagree with the “new morality of the perverse” will be easily penalised by being denied digital access to money or blocked from shopping transactions. At present, censorship is happening on Facebook, Google and YouTube against those who oppose the new world agenda. Why? By accepting lesser evils and normalising them, greater evils and atrocities can be committed with less resistance. If sin is endorsed and popularised, the truly good and god-fearing will be shunned. Population growth, beliefs and values will be controlled by the worst of men and women. Christ preserve our souls.

Insights into the Demonic Realm

For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. This is why you must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand. (Ephesians 6:12)

A few insights I have gathered in my research and personal experiences include the following:

1. Do not confront the demonic on their home ground. Exorcists are taught to take the demonized to holy or consecrated ground.

2. Never attempt an exorcism by yourself. One always needs the prayers and spiritual support of others. Also, people may question your conduct if you confront a demonized person in isolation.

3. Ignore ‘parlour’ tricks. Demons will use tricks to terrify the unsuspecting – feats of strength, revelation of secrets, temperature changes and threats. Be safe and confident in the shed blood of Christ.

4. Use the authority of Jesus – not your own name. Demons do not recognise the authority of humanity. By the authority of Jesus and His blood, you may command the unclean spirits.

5. Demons ignore doctrine and dogma. Command only in the name of Jesus – not by the power of free will, predestination or conditional salvation.

6. Do not use the name of a demon out loud unless commanding them to leave by the authority of Christ. Using the name out loud in common talk or in jest will attract the entity. Avoid watching horror movies as the demonic finds this inspirational (hell porn).

7. Demons consider humans as incredibly stupid. We have the revelation of God and Christ, a new covenant, yet we prefer the antireligious religion of humanism. Near Death Experiences involving sinners and non-believers often show that:

a. The dead are told and understand the reality of God’s holiness and justice – God’s judgement is good and just.

b. Demons laugh at the blindness and stupidity of the damned. The torments are unimaginable. Some people believe that they are in paradise, then things go horribly wrong. Common accounts show homosexuals are chained together in a lake of fire and that practitioners of witchcraft devour their own flesh. Regardless what the humanist thinks is fair and just, God has the final word.

c. Escape and resistance against the powers of hell are futile without Jesus. Marines and other strongmen are amazed by their weakness.

8. Demonic phenomena can be seen as:

a) infestation (localised haunting of a house or place);

b) obsession (a Christian is attacked mentally or physically by demons). The thoughts are not your own – ignore them and hand them over to Jesus.

C) possession (a demon or demons reside in part of the personality or mind of their victim in the hope of gaining full control of their consciousness).

9. PSYCHICS are easily fooled by demons who feed them mental impressions of sweet, innocent children and thereby hide their true identity.

10. If you want to be an exorcist, then you are probably not suitable for the role. Exorcists are called by God, through the church or other means. Well-studied Christians have failed badly because it was not their calling.

Stand, therefore,
with truth like a belt around your waist,
righteousness like armor on your chest,
and your feet sandaled with readiness
for the gospel of peace.
In every situation take the shield of faith,
and with it you will be able to extinguish
all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is God’s word.
Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.

Ephesians 6:14-18
